Dr. Jill Biden Is a 'Bridgerton' Fan

She even joked with Kelly Clarkson about the show's raciest episode.

Netflix's Bridgerton was reportedly watched by at least 82 million households as of last month — and one of those was apparently the Biden household.

Dr. Jill Biden made an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show for her first solo broadcast interview since becoming first lady, and the two played a quick-fire game of word association. During the game, Clarkson asked for the first lady's thoughts on Bridgerton — and Dr. Biden quickly revealed herself as a fan.

The first lady named "costumes" and "romance" as the first things that come to mind about the period show, prompting Clarkson to joke, "We're so different. My first word would have been different."

Given that the show is now renowned for its steamy scenes, we're inclined to agree with Clarkson. And it seems Dr. Biden caught on, joking, "OK, I know what episode you're talking about."

"It might be episode five," Clarkson said. And if you haven't seen the show, we won't spoil it for you — just know that it's among the raciest episodes of the season. Even Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page spoofed the show's sex scenes during a bit on Saturday Night Live when he hosted earlier this month.

Elsewhere during the interview, Dr. Biden responded to her viral scrunchie moment, telling Clarkson that her daughter had called to inform her that everyone was obsessed with the hair accessory she wore to a D.C. bakery.

"I didn't know what she was talking about, I still don't understand it," she said.
