P.s. this ^ picture was taken moments before KJ struck.
So we all know that Lili and Cole’s Riverdale characters, Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper (AKA Jughead), are a thing on screen. But the pair are pretty private about their IRL relationship, with the exception of birthdays, when you can fully expect Lili to gush about her ‘love’.
Anyway, last night was neither of their birthdays so in true Lili and Cole fashion they kept things coy by walking the red carpet separately, buuut once inside a photographer was able to capture a rare glimpse of the couple together.
Only the whole moment was perfectly ruined by KJ with a precisely executed photobomb.
During a brief moment they were actually able to sit down in between collecting their well-deserved awards, the couple posed for a cute snap together.
But right between their genetically-blessed heads, you can see KJ pulling the kind of face we haven’t seen since Jim Carey played Ace Ventura.
Of course, that wasn’t the Riverdale gang’s only win of the evening, as they quite literally aced the night by winning TEN awards.
Proving that the CW show is dominating teen’s lives like no other rn, they picked up the televised win for “Choice Drama TV Show.”
But by the time they went to collect their coveted surfboard for the win, they hardly looked surprised as they’d already won a bunch of awards that weren’t shown on telly.
Luckily we’re here to fill you in where television broadcasting has failed you, and we can confirm that Cole, AKA, Bughead took home the Choice Male Hottie award (duh) as well as Choice TV Drama Actor.
Lili/Betty snagged the Choice TV Drama Actress award and Madelaine Petsch (Cherly Blossom) won Choice Hissy Fit.
Vanessa Morgan/Toni Topaz bagged Choice Scene Stealer and Choice Breakout TV Star, and Mark Consuelos/Hiram Lodge won Choice TV Villain.
Phew! And we’re not even done.
Two couples from the show were nominated for Choice TV Ship, as in relationSHIP, as in which couple people are SHIPping the most.
KJ, who plays Archie Andrews, and Camila Mendes (Veronica Lodge) were nominated alongside Jughead, er, we mean Lili and Cole.
But only one couple could take home the prestigious award, and ultimately it went to everyone’s fave on and off screen baes, Lili and Cole.
Plus the people’s love for the pair was later solidified when they took home the award for Choice Lip Lock.
Tbh, KJ’s photobomb is all starting to make sense now, ’cause who wouldn’t wanna slot themselves firmly between TV’s most loved couple?
Smart move, KJ.
Seriously though, hats off to everyone who was nominated for a Teen Choice Award, what an evening.
