On the newest episode of Riverdale, the CW execs decided to keep their teen pieces clothed because they didn't want to distract from the story. JuSt KiDdInG! The freakishly sexy K.J. Apa is again sans shirt, and this time around he lets out some pent-up, manly frustration on a hanging red sack while Luke Perry watches. Mama need a cigarette! But really, the scene provides some lengthy looks at K.J. Apa's glistening shirtless bod while he practices his boxing moves, and he gives damn good face and hair to boot.
You probably don't need reminding that last week brought the first gay scene from the Archie-inspired drama with spit swapping between Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) and Joaquin (Rob Raco). While unfortunately, K.J. Apa doesn't join in on the homo hijinks on this week's episode, "Heart of Darkness," I'm glad that Riverdale's weekly taint-tickling scene is back to a shirtless Apa. In case you need your glass refreshed, Apa is a 19-years-old half-Samoan creamsicle, and it just so turns out that 19-year-old half-Samoans are like my ~thing~ now. Especially when they have dyed red hair and look exactly like K.J. Apa. Maybe my thing is actually just K.J. Apa.
As if the boxing scene isn't enough, the latest episode of Riverdale also delivers a glimpse of Ross Butler in just a towel during a locker room scene. Now, if only this high school locker room takes a turn for the Teen Wolf, Riverdale might just be the best teen thirst trap shows on television! Check out the full K.J. Apa shirtless boxing scene below, and head HERE for MOAR Apa.
