No Australian TV fan will ever forget the events of October 3, 2014.
It was the morning after the dramatic finale of season two of The Bachelor. Blake Garvey had chosen Sam Frost, dropped to one knee and declared his undying love.
“I’ve never been more sure of anything, ever,” Blake said.
"I have no doubts, no doubts in my mind. You are the one for me."
Except, upon waking up the next day, the whole of Australia learned that Blake did, in fact have doubts, and had unceremoniously dumped Sam (in a meeting room full of producers, no less) and started a relationship with Louise Pillidge, who had placed third.

Blake was branded a "love rat", and the Australian public vowed never to speak of him again (except, of course, when another reality TV contestant reveals they dated him once up on a time).
We never thought we'd see anything like it ever again. We thought the entire world had learned from Blake's 'mistake'.
But after watching last night's finale of the 22nd season of the US version of The Bachelor, is appears they had not.
Today, Arie Luyendyk Jr. - who first rose to Bachelor fame on the eighth season of The Bachelorette in 2012 - is waking up to a brand new title of 'The Most Hated Man In America'.
