Olivia Tells Ben Higgins She Wants to ‘Talk Smart Things’ on ‘The Bachelor’: Watch

Perhaps The Bachelor's Olivia — who previously spoke at length about her cankles and jumped out of a stripper cake — is just too highbrow for this show? Indeed, the embattled contestant explained to Ben Higgins on the show's Monday, February 8, episode that she isn't getting along with the women because she can't relate to their pedestrian interests.

At the start of the episode, Ben pulled Olivia aside just before the rose ceremony began. In private, he asked the outspoken news anchor why the other ladies have been speaking ill of her, so she did her best to explain why she isn't making a lot of friends in the house.

"Everybody here's, like, really into painting their nails and doing each other's hair, and that's great, but I'm just different," Olivia said.

"Like, I like reading books in my room and, like, thinking, and that's what I do," she continued. "And I want to talk smart things."

The cringeworthy exchange can be seen in the video above. 

The Bachelor airs on ABC on Mondays at 8 p.m. EST.
