BBC presenter makes brutal observation about most swiped right guy on Tinder
| Last updated
BBC presented Ben Brown made a savage observation about the one of the most swiped guys on Tinder. You can watch the moment here:
It's bad enough being teased by your mates when you're out on the town, but having a BBC presenter rip into you live on air takes the cake.
The hilarious interaction occurred when Ben was interviewing James Langton, one of the most popular lads on Tinder for a segment on the app's 10-year anniversary.
For anyone not aware, Tinder launched in 2012 and has been installed, deleted and installed on phones across the globe ever since.
It's safe to say that the app has transformed dating, for better or worse, and even inspired James – who now works as a dating coach – to launch his own app called Dater Help.
Creative name we know, but James fully believes in it and the online dating experience.
Despite this, James explained that while people frequently 'swiped right' on his profile, he was yet to find love through an app.
James said that he thought his issue might be 'going for people who are out of my range'.
He went on to add that: "That’s maybe my issue at the minute. No, I’m very much single, which I realise the irony of being a dating app coach and being single.
"But I think people should judge me by the metrics of how many people get more matches and more dates, rather than me maybe."
And, instead of being sympathetic, Ben absolutely didn't hold back, ending the interview with this blinding observation: "There we are, James Langton, one of the most popular men on Tinder – one of the most-swiped guys on Tinder – is actually single at the moment..."
The presenter then didn't try to hide it as he openly laughed at his own comment. Savage.
Naturally, the clip quickly made the rounds of Twitter, with many amused by the interaction.
One simply wrote: "His face," and we honestly hope James is okay after that unexpected insight.
While another thought that Ben's comments were a little harsh, saying: "He woke up and chose violence."
A third suggested that James just wasn't Ben's type: "He didn't seem impressed. Definite swipe left."
One even shared a screen grab from The Simpsons, with Bart saying 'you can actually pinpoint the second when his heart rips in half', and they're not far off because our heart would be aching if we had to sit through those kinds of comments.
We really do hope James is okay.
