Just like the rest of us, Chrissy Teigen is not above squeezing in a reference to a pop-culture touchstone that she knows absolutely nothing about and just hoping that nobody notices. 

The model shared footage to her Instagram Story on Tuesday, Feb. 2 of herself looking quite glam for a shoot. She clearly felt that the gorgeous look made her appear quite regal, although she didn't quite know the right way to express this.

"I am Chrissy Bridgerton, Lord of Bridgerton," Chrissy said in the footage. She then seemed to recognize that this didn't feel right, so she grimaced and admitted, "I've never seen the show."

She proceeded to look toward her team for guidance, but alas, they didn't seem to be much better equipped to clear up her confusion. 

"What is it? Is it a town?" Chrissy asked. One person off-camera believed that this was correct, so Chrissy replied, "Oh, Bridgerton's the place."

Still not convinced that she had it all figured out, the Lip Sync Battle co-host sought further clarification. "Is her name Bridgerton?" Finally, one of Chrissy's pals informed her that yes, the lead character's last name is Bridgerton. Phew.

Bridgerton Secrets and Easter Eggs

At this, Chrissy took a moment to gloat, whether it was deserved or not. "I was correct, I'm the Duchess of Bridgerton," she said.

As basically every human on the planet other than Chrissy knows, the phenomenally popular Netflix series' first season centers on the Bridgerton family, including eldest daughter Daphne Bridgerton, played by actress Phoebe Dynevor. Meanwhile, Regé-Jean Page portrays Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings.

Luckily, the Cravings: Hungry for More author can take solace in knowing that Ashton Kutcher appears to be a bit out of the loop as well. During her Feb. 1 visit to TodayMila Kunis shared that her husband woke up while Mila was watching a particularly sexy Bridgerton moment and mistakenly thought she was enjoying an adult film.

Meanwhile, Bridgerton was recently picked up for a second season, which means Chrissy still has a little time to catch up before she soon becomes even more confused.
