People Magazine has declared that Ben Napier is one of the world’s sexiest men. But the Home Town Star isn’t letting it get to his head.

Okay, that’s not entirely true. He is letting the major and well-deserved compliment get to his head a little. But who can blame him?

Today, the HGTV renovation guru hit up Instagram after his wife, Erin Napier, got a note from her friend.

The note read, ” Erin, congrats on being married to one of People’s Sexiest Men. You go, Girl!

“Y’all pray for @erinapier,” Ben wrote alongside a picture of said note. “This award is more of a burden for her. She will never hear the end of it.”

The burly woodworker also made sure to refer to himself as a “trophy husband.”

People’s Editor-in-chief Dan Wakeford was the first person to comment on Ben’s humble post, “Haha! Enjoy your year of sexiness!” he wrote. But let’s all admit, Ben Napier won’t be any less handsome in 365 days.

And Ben’s friend, stunt driver Tony Angelo, told him he should go a step further than bragging on social media.

“I would put it on my gravestone! Own it, bro,” he wrote.

‘Home Town’ Stars Erin and Ben Napier Would Like to Thank Fans for Supporting Small Businesses

Home Town stars Erin and Ben Napier are grateful for all the people who help keep small businesses afloat.

On top of heading two highly successful reality shows, Ben and Erin Napier are also small business owners. The couple runs two stores, Laurel Mercantile and Scotsman General Store & Woodshop. Both storefronts are located in their Home Town of Laurel, Mississippi.

On Sunday (November 14th), Erin took a moment out of her day to thank all of her fans for supporting her stores, their vendors, and all the other small businesses that operate across the country.

“We are overwhelmed by the amount of support that you have shown to our small town, @laurelmercantile, @scotsmangeneralstore, and the American makers that sell their products in our stores,” she began in an Instagram post.

According to the HGTV star, over 160,000 U.S. small businesses closed last year due to the COVID pandemic. The couple feels lucky to have survived the storm. And in the emotional letter, Erin expressed that her “gratitude cannot be fully expressed in words, but the impact is felt and seen across our country.”

“To those of you who supported our store, you helped provide hundreds of makers a reason to keep creating and make ends meet during the hardest year in history,” she continued. “You helped our company provide jobs to more than 70 people with plans to employ more soon.”
