Gilmore Girls' Matt Czuchry Defends Logan After TikTok Goes Viral

Every now and then, a decades-old question must be considered: Team Jess, Team Dean, or Team Logan? To be fair, it's a good question - your preference for Rory from Gilmore Girls says a lot about your own desires and values ​​in life.

The guys at Gilmore Girls also have some interesting thoughts on the debate. This time, Matt Czuchry (who played Logan Huntzberger in the original series and the Netflix reboot) will step into the ring to defend his character.

None of Rory's lovers are perfect.

During an April 1 appearance on The Talk, Czuchry responded to a TikTok video by @mury1738 in which Logan and Jess were “well below average — which is probably why the standards for women have been so low for decades.” Reasons that have always been there." The user also singled out Logan's "inconsistency."

"We shouldn't strive for perfection in anything. Whether it's relationships or anything else," Czhuchry said, noting that Jess, Dean and Logan all have their strengths and weaknesses. (Okay, valid, even as a Jesse girl I admit he has some questionable character traits.)

The actor didn't try to defend his character, though. Instead, he said "the fun of the show" is the never-ending debate. "These characters are all flawed, but they also have great I think as long as we're not striving for perfection, I'm okay with that shot."

It's time for an update on Logan and Rory

Rory and Logan certainly weren't striving for perfection on "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life." In the 2016 revival, the college sweethearts had an affair despite Logan being engaged to someone else, and it was strongly hinted that he was the father of Rory's unborn baby.

As line costume director Valerie Campbell pointed out on TikTok last year, "It should be very, very, very obvious." Zuchry himself told Us Magazine In 2021, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Dan Palladino let him know the identity of the baby's daddy.

"They said, 'Yeah, you can tell whoever you want,'" Czuchry recalled, adding that he never did because "that's what they said," not him.

"Also, if we do come back, they might change their minds," he continued. "So it could have turned out to be a different person. That's why I never said what they told me on set."

In fact, viewers will need to wait for a potential revival follow-up to get the classic answer. Almost the same amount of time has passed between now and A Year in the Life , the revival and the original series - so fans are in dire need of checking in.
