The Bachelor Australia S06E06: Most awkward kiss rejection yet

The latest episode of The Bachelor Australia featured the most cringeworthy passionate kiss rejection yet.

Rhiannon was reduced to tears after her private date with Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins didn't end up how she wanted it to.

After the pair took to the skies in a heart-shaped hot air balloon, they cozied up on a couch together - but when things should've gotten romantic, they got awkward instead.

After Nick gave Rhiannon a rose, he gave her a peck on the cheek and pulled her in for a hug.

"I mean, I'd love to give you a little kiss but I don't know if it's like awkward or not," she told him.

"Is it awkward? Do you wanna do it? Do you wanna kiss? I don't know - I do want to, but it's like, I do want to. I want to ask.

"What? You don't want to?"

Nick told her "it's a tough one" and he "looks forward to what's to come", but refrained from locking lips with her.

She then broke down crying while talking to a producer afterwards, explaining how difficult she found the situation.

The Bachelor Australia screens in New Zealand on Bravo at 8:30pm every Tuesday and Wednesday. It can also be viewed on ThreeNow.
