Sydney influencer Sopha Dopha was left red faced after she made a humiliating mistake during an interview at the 2023 TikTok Awards on Wednesday night.
The 19-year-old, real name Sophia Begg, was sitting in the audience when host Tony Armstrong approached her for an on-camera interview.
Footage of their brief chat has since gone viral after Sophia bizarrely told the TV presenter, 34, to stop flirting with her – despite the fact that he has a girlfriend.
‘How are you feeling? You look ecstatic and I’m pumped for you,’ Tony said as he addressed Sophia who was nominated for the Creator of the Year award.
‘Thank you. Wow! Stop flirting with me!’ Sophia replied, prompting scattered laughter in the audience.

‘Had a hard launch this week, mate. Don’t know if you caught the news…’ Tony replied, referring to his new relationship with girlfriend Rona Glynn-McDonald.
The audience roared with laughter as Tony continued: ‘That was not flirting, that was flattery.’
Visibly embarrassed, Sophia covered her mouth with one hand, before finally composing herself to reply: ‘No, thank you. I’m happy to be here.’

Ever the seasoned professional, Tony brushed off the awkwardness by asking Sophia how she was feeling about the prospect of winning Creator of the Year.
‘Yeah, I’m very excited. Very nervous, but excited for everyone up for the nomination,’ she replied.
Critics have roasted Sophia on TikTok over the clip, with one commenting: ‘She definitely doesn’t know what ecstatic means.’
‘Omg the second hand embarrassment this gave me,’ someone else wrote.
‘She clearly didn’t understand the word ecstatic and first reaction was to accuse him of flirting,’ another added.
It came shortly after Sophia lost out the award for Creator of the Year to mummy blogger Indy Clinton.

The blonde later ended her evening by visiting a Maccas drive-through in Sydney to drown her sorrows, sharing a snap of her fast food order to Instagram Stories.
On the menu for the night was a large Quarter Pounder meal, large Coke Zero, Filet-O-Fish and a medium fries.
With the meal coming to a grand total of $28.50, Sophie captioned the photo: ‘Ofc a sneaky Maccas run on the way home.’

Despite the big loss, Sophie turned heads on the red carpet during the big night as she channeled her inner Kate Hudson and slipped into a yellow satin dress.
The frock looked near identical to the gown the Hollywood actress, 44, wore in a scene of popular early 2000s romantic comedy How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.
The dress skimmed against her toned figure and a faux mermaid train tumbled to the red carpet.
She paired the elegant look with a pair of white Prada pumps and a nude Fendi mini-purse worth $1,095.
She chose a gold bangle and rings, and a bronzed makeup look.
The winner, Indy Clinton, 27, has over 1.5million followers on TikTok where she shares hilarious videos about dealing with her husband and two children.
The blonde bombshell, who is pregnant with her third child, cut a glamorous figure as she attended the ceremony in Sydney and gave a winning speech thanking her fans for their support.
‘I just won Creator of the Year 2023, thank you so much to every single one of you that voted for me. I am honestly blown away,’ she said.
