Now that we have deets about Rory Gilmore’s love life from Alexis Bledel herself, our attention is back on the first trailer for the new Gilmore Girls episodes while we wonder what’s in store for Lorelai. Though Luke may be the first man that comes to mind when you think of mama Gilmore’s romances, there’s another man who’s apparently on her mind: John Oliver. And, we’re sure she’d be happy to hear, he has something to say about her too. More specifically, how hot she is.
As you know by now, the first trailer starts by questioning a possible, hypothetical friendship with Amy Schumer and deciding that water sports might tear the imaginary besties apart. But in case you forgot, it ends with Lorelai (played by Lauren Graham) moving on to another topic by asking Rory, “Do you think John Oliver would find me hot?”
Appearing on The Late Show to chat with Stephen Colbert, John has a definitive answer to that question. “Lorelai, the answer is yes, I do find you hot.” But he didn’t stop there. “And I’ll tell you why,” the British political comedian continued, “I’m a red-blooded male with an in-built heat detector, and my heat director registers you as en fuego.” Muy caliente, Mama G!
Could Lorelai have a new leading man in John Oliver? It may not be too likely, but we’ll just have to wait and see on November 25 when all four 90-minute-long episodes hit Netflix.
Check out the convo at around the six-minute mark.
