Jimmy Fallon became a sudden — and big! — "Gilmore Girls" fan after binge watching the show's original run ahead of its reboot last year, and it's not just Lorelai and Rory that he fell for.

When it comes to the guys of Stars Hollow, Fallon is Team Jess "all the way."

But when Milo Ventimiglia stopped by "The Tonight Show" Tuesday, Fallon learned that the actor who played Jess is on another team altogether.

"I was, of course, a big Team Dean and Logan (fan) because I love Matty Czuchry and Jared Padalecki," he said of the guys who played Rory's other love interests on the show. Then Ventimiglia mused, "But were those guys Team Rory? I think that’s kinda the question that I was thinking."
