Ben Higgins Cringes During Olivia’s Bizarre Striptease on ‘The Bachelor’: Watch

When it comes to awkward talent-show performances, Olivia takes the cake! Things get cringeworthy during The Bachelor’s Monday, January 25, episode when the ladies take the stage for Ben Higgins, as seen in Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak-peek clip.

Ben and the gang head to Las Vegas for the episode, where each woman on the group date has to take part in a talent competition as the opening act for ventriloquist Terry Fator‘s show.

In the footage, Olivia hops out of a fake cake wearing a skimpy showgirl-inspired outfit complete with a feather boa and cape. (Then again, who doesn’t dress like that on a date?) Ben appears to enjoy Olivia’s entrance, but he grows increasingly uncomfortable throughout her performance and ultimately covers his face with his hands.

“Olivia is hilarious,” Caila tells the camera with a laugh. “One of those talents where you want to look, but you know you shouldn’t look, but you can’t really stop watching.”


Providing a far less magnanimous take on the entertainment, Amanda says to the camera, “I’m not really sure if jumping out of a cake and kicking your legs is a talent, so I’m not really sure what Ben’s thinking right now.”

Olivia was initially seen as a frontrunner on the dating show, earning the First Impression rose. However, the two appear to be drifting apart, particularly following last week’s scene when the 23-year-old news anchor used her time with him to defend her “cankles” immediately after he shared his grief over the death of two people close to him.

To see Ben’s expression get progressively less encouraging, watch the video above.

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