Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large sauté pan on medium-high heat, heat olive oil, add onions and garlic; cook for 2 minutes. Add shrimp, tilapia, and bay scallops; cook 3-4 minutes until about halfway done (or halfway raw if you’re a pessimist). Add Clamato, lemon juice, seafood seasoning, scallops, and rice; mix well. Cook to heat through. Remove from heat; blend in Monterey Jack. Spoon mixture into peppers, place in a lightly greased baking dish, cover with foil, and bake for 20 minutes. While waiting, drink some Clamato. Remove foil and top with Cheddar; bake 5 more minutes or until the cheese is melted.
