A clip from the US series The Bachelor has gone viral thanks to one of the most cringeworthy moments in the history of television.

The series sees eligible bachelor Ben Higgins date women from a pool of potential life partners which he eventually whittles down to just one.

In a recent episode he told all the lovely ladies that he had learned that morning that two of his friends had died in a plane crash.

Grabbing her opportunity to comfort Ben in his hour of need, you would expect, Olivia took him aside for a chat.

However, it wasn't Ben's loss which was the subject of the conversation.  No, Olivia wanted to impart the fact that she does not like her legs.

"So, you know how everyone has things on their body they wish they could change, like mine, waist down, I hate my legs.  I hate them," she began.

Ben, reeling from the death of his friends remained silent as empathy-vacuum Olivia continued, "Like, people have written blogs that I have cankles and.... sorry, I'm trying to be strong all the time, but em, it's the scariest thing ever."

Ben was not impressed.  Filmed afterwards, he said, "I came here a little down and this s**t is not exactly what I want to talk about.  It would be nice if some woman took some time to just not have all those expectations and just come through."
