Eee! This Gilmore Girls Actor Just Revealed Deets About His Character’s Love Life
The return of the Gilmore Girls is just over a month away, and we’ve been busy wondering about the state of Rory’s love life and trying to figure out who she might end up with (if she happens to end up with anyone, that is). We’ve also been curious about the clues around Lorelai’s relationships (is she pregnant?!), as well as the other beloved characters in the series. Well, now we have a few deets direct from a fan fave. Yanic Truesdale, who played snobby yet lovable Michel, has revealed that his character now has a thriving love life and we’ll get an inside look.
Fans will remember Michel as the Assistant Manager at Dragonfly Inn, AKA “Mr. Grumpy Pants.” Somehow, despite the fact that he was usually snarking at someone and usually particularly unpleasant, Michel was also totally lovable and adored by fans.
Back for the new four extended episodes, we’re going to get to see an entirely new side of the character. “Michel has grown into someone who has a love life, which we’ve never seen before,” Yanic told ET, adding that in the past, “he would go on dates, but it was very vague — we didn’t see anyone or see the dates.”
But that’s all going to change with the new episodes. “We’ll get to know much more about who he is personally. That’s the big change for me.” It’s a big change for us too. And we can’t wait!
Don’t forget (as if you could!) — Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life hits Netflix on November 25.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
