Camila Mendes Says Her & Lili Reinhart's 'Seventeen Mexico' Cover is Way Better Than KJ Apa & Cole Sprouse's Covers

Camila Mendes Says Her & Lili Reinhart's 'Seventeen Mexico' Cover is Way Better Than KJ Apa & Cole Sprouse's Covers

Camila Mendes and Lili Reinhart share one of the covers for Seventeen Mexico‘s new December 2017 issue.

The two Riverdale stars star on the new cover, and co-stars KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse have also gotten their own covers — however, Camila still wants you to choose Beronica over them.

“grab a copy of @seventeenmx if you wanna practice reading in español,” Camila captions on her own Instagram.

As for why you should choose Beronica over the guys, it’s really simple: “Get the one with the blonde and brunette on the cover, it’s wayyyyy better than kj’s and cole’s i promise.”

Love this reason!

KJ Apa Heard The Craziest 'Riverdale' Black Hood Theory Yet

KJ Apa Heard The Craziest 'Riverdale' Black Hood Theory Yet

KJ Apa and Camila Mendes huddle together under an umbrella while filming new scenes for Riverdale this week on set in Vancouver, Canada.

The on-screen couple bundled up in large puffer jackets and hid from the rain outside under a few huge umbrellas.

Speaking with Nerdist recently, KJ confessed that he heard possibly the craziest theory about who Black Hood actually is on the show.

“I saw a good one that Vegas was actually the Black Hood, and that was pretty funny,” he shared. “I saw that on Twitter somewhere.”

If you don’t know, Vegas is actually the Andrews’ family dog!

KJ added about the other theories out there, “I did see some pretty crazy theories, but none of them have been right so far that I’ve seen.”

Veronica's Ex, Nick St. Clair, Pops Up in 'Riverdale' Tonight & Archie Doesn't Trust Him One Bit

Veronica's Ex, Nick St. Clair, Pops Up in 'Riverdale' Tonight & Archie Doesn't Trust Him One Bit

Graham Phillips makes his debut as Nick St. Clair tonight on Riverdale — and we’re more than a little nervous.

Per KJ Apa, who plays Archie, he’s “stirring the pot”

“Obviously, [with him] being Veronica’s ex-boyfriend, things can get gnarly, especially because Archie’s very protective of Veronica,” KJ shared with TVLine.

Elsewhere in the episode, Alice (Madchen Amick) publishes a fiery piece in the Riverdale Register blasting the Southside and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) is forced to take matters into his own hands to try and keep the peace.

Then, Betty (Lili Reinhart) turns to Archie for help after receiving an ultimatum that could potentially destroy some of her closest relationships.

Riverdale airs TONIGHT @8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Lili Reinhart & KJ Apa Tease Betty & Archie's Unique Bond on 'Riverdale'

Lili Reinhart & KJ Apa Tease Betty & Archie's Unique Bond on 'Riverdale'

Remember last week when Betty got that note from Black Hood on Riverdale? Well, it’s about to happen again on tonight’s episode.

Lili Reinhart teases that Betty will get another call from the mysterious serial killer on the loose and the person she turns to won’t be Kevin Keller of Jughead Jones — it will be Archie Andrews.

“Betty ends up confiding in Archie,” Lili shared with TVLine. “[It will give viewers a chance to see] how she confides in him and how they help one another.”

KJ Apa added that the two friends share a unique bond: “I think Archie’s number-one person to go to for help, or advice, or just someone to talk to, has always been Betty, for as long as he can remember… They’re best friends, and when s—t hits the fan, Betty goes to Archie, and Archie goes to Betty.”

Speaking of Black Hood though, Lili compares it to “the Phantom of the Opera and Christine, in a way.”

“He wants to kind of puppeteer her in order to get the town to where he wants it to be, in a very sick and manipulative way,” she says. “He is this horrible figure who wants to expel Riverdale of its sins, and he is using Betty to try and do that.”

KJ Apa Jokes He Punched a Bear After Another Hand Injury

KJ Apa Jokes He Punched a Bear After Another Hand Injury

We hate to even say this, but KJ Apa is no stranger to on-set accidents it seems.

The Riverdale actor is just recovering from a scary car accident (which technically didn’t happen ON set, but did leaving set), and did actually break his hand while filming the season one finale of the show earlier this year.

Now, it seems, his entire hand has ballooned following another accident.

“I guess that’s what happens when you punch a bear in the face,” KJ captioned the pic of his hand on Instagram.

While we’re not sure if it was a bear at all — his hand is massive!

KJ, stop injuring yourself!

KJ Apa Wants to Play a Superhero After 'Riverdale'

KJ Apa Wants to Play a Superhero After 'Riverdale'

KJ Apa gets to play an increasingly action-heavy role on Riverdale, and it has inspired him to think big.

Shooting a recent fight scene in which Archie doesn’t fare particularly well (you know the one) actually made the actor excited about turning to action movies.

“Shooting that scene actually made me realize that I really, really love action,” he told Esquire in an interview.

“All the spots [for superhero movies] are being taken up while I’m shooting Riverdale. I think doing some more physical roles would really excite me.”

We can totally see KJ playing a superhero! After all, his Halloween costume was Spiderman.

TELL JJJ: What superhero do you think KJ should play?
