Where Does Rory Gilmore Dating Pete Campbell Fall on the Co-Stars Dating IRL Creepiness Scale?

Of this, I do not approve: Alexis Bledel, who I will call Rory Gilmore from here on out, because she will ALWAYS be Rory Gilmore in my heart, is going steady with her "Mad Men" co-star Vincent Kartheiser, who I will call neither Connor nor Pete Campbell, because eww. Celebrities are people (what???), so they're allowed to date whomever they want, but in my mind, I had decided that Rory would get back together with Jess (not Dean, not Logan, but Jess), and they'd live happily ever after with Lorelai and Luke and Lane and Terry from "True Blood" and Sookie not from "True Blood." But like Rory's plans of going to Harvard, it wasn't meant to be. So, I guess, in this metaphor, Milo Ventimiglia is the Harvard to Vincent's Yale? Sure.

Anyway, Rory and Vincent = NOPE. There's something just...weird about it. Maybe it's because I still think of Rory as a 17-year-old who owns a stuffed rooster named Colonel Plucker, and now I have to imagine that Angel's son is "plucking" her, but Josh (and probably Joanna, too - as for Dustin, who knows? He's a monster) doesn't like. But how does it compare to other recent(ish) TV co-star IRL relationships? Well, let's take a look; the couples are ranked from least to most inherently creepy.
