Okay, this might be a little hard to hear, but sometimes the truth hurts. Milo Ventimiglia just revealed once and for all which team he is on, and it’s not Team Jess! It is, however, one of his other TV characters.

Gilmore Girls fans know and love Ventimiglia as the bad boy Jess Mariano, but while appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon recently, the actor finally explained which team he’s fighting for.

“I felt like it was maybe a little arrogant to be Team Jess,” Ventimiglia told Fallon after the talk show host revealed he’s always been Team Jess.

“I was, of course, a big Team Dean and Logan because I love Matty Czuchry and Jared Padalecki…but were those guys Team Rory?” he continued. “I think that’s kinda the question that I was thinking. Yeah, it blew your mind.”

He might not have though Rory and Jess should be together forever, but Ventimiglia did love his character.

“He was a cool guy. Jess was pretty awesome,” Ventimiglia said. “He was no Jack Pearson.”

Okay, we agree that Jack on This Is Us, is the best dad ever and his love of his wife is almost too much to handle based on cuteness. Although he is pretty amazing we still love Jess and always will.

This Is Us airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
