Riverdale has a lot of steamy and dreamy couples to keep track of — aka Archie and Veronica or Betty and Jughead — but off screen, one of our favorite Riverdale stars has a pretty great romance brewing… even if the couple doesn’t watch The CW show together.

During a recent YouTube video, Madelaine Petsch, who plays Riverdale Vixen Cheryl Blossom, discovered that her boyfriend actor Travis Mills doesn’t really watch her show. With the series being such a big success — and so addicting (if we say so ourselves) — it’s a bit surprising that Petsch’s boyfriend doesn’t tune in each week, but he actually has a good reason why not.

“I have a disclaimer,” Mills said in Petsch’s YouTube video called “How well does my boyfriend know RIVERDALE?”

He continued by saying that his disclaimer has to do with how much he loves his girlfriend. “The only reason why I didn’t get through season 1, is because every time I started watching it, I would just miss you, because you were gone,” he said. Isn’t that the cutest?

Petsch then went on to quiz Mills on his Riverdale knowledge, and although he didn’t know a lot of the answers, including what Cheryl Blossom’s parents’ names are, he did get 17 answers right.

Despite the fact that Mills doesn’t always watch the show, at least he’s seen it. Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead, previously revealed that he doesn’t even want his loved ones — aka his bother Dylan Sprouse — to watch the series.

No matter which of the cast member’s significant others, or family members watch Riverdale, we’ll keep tuning in week after week to see who is terrorizing the small town, and what will happen next!

Riverdale airs on Wednesdays on The CW.
