As Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell near the one-year anniversary of their engagement, The Bachelor stars have come to learn a few things about each other that some might find surprising.

“One thing no one would know about Ben is he rubs his feet together all the time,” Bushnell, 26, recently told PEOPLE Now with a giggle. “He has like, a nervous habit. He’s doing it right now!”

“I’m hyperactive,” explained Higgins, 28. “I burn calories at every moment, so I have to move a lot.”

Another one of Higgins’ quirks?

“You know, I tease him about it, but he wears these glasses to bed after he takes his contacts out,” revealed Bushnell. “He’s had them since … I think second grade?”

“Fourth grade!” corrects Higgins.

“So they’re little kid glasses — they’re, like, little spectacles!” added Bushnell with a laugh. “I give him such a hard time about them about them, but I secretly love it because it makes me laugh.”

And Bushnell isn’t without her own quirks either.

“It drives me crazy that Lauren expresses how she feels about everything,” said Higgins. “She’s cold, she’s hot, she’s sad, she has a headache, she’s hungry, she’s nervous, she’s really full. There’s no in between … like, ‘Hey, life’s just clicking along.’ Lauren makes sure that you know how she is no matter what.”

“I’m a little dramatic,” confessed Bushnell, who is currently starring alongside her fiancé in their own Freeform reality show, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?

But at the end of the day, there are just a couple of things Higgins can’t live without.

“Whiskey, me or a set of tools,” said Bushnell.

Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? airs Tuesdays (8 p.m. ET) on Freeform.
