HGTV's Erin And Ben Napier Celebrate 100 Episodes Of Home Town With Familiar Faces

Erin and Ben Napier, stars of HGTV's hit series "Home Town," celebrated a major milestone for their show this week. On Tuesday, the couple gathered with dozens of friends and family members, as well as special guests from their show. Surprised and joyfully overwhelmed by the crowd, Erin Napier shared a post on her Instagram page to mark the occasion, with her and her husband, Ben, smiling in their evening wear. In the caption of her photo, she wrote, "Last night we got to celebrate the 100th episode of #HGTVHomeTown with most everyone who has ever been a part of it." Indeed, the couple was reunited with "Hundreds of faces. Every homeowner from 7 seasons, our crew and producers, and HGTV were there and it felt like a second wedding for us."

But the celebration was more than just your ordinary backyard potluck dinner party. Erin took the opportunity to share with her followers some heartfelt sentiments about their time on the show. Here's what she had to say about the experience and the generous responses she received from "Home Town" fans and HGTV co-stars. 

Erin expressed sincere gratitude

Being surrounded by so many familiar people made Erin Napier feel sentimental about the show's journey and appreciative of the wonderful opportunities that she and Ben have had to help others. "To be in a very crowded room and know every single face and have clear memories of them all is overwhelming," Erin wrote, "I realized how important it is to so many people's livelihoods that God saw fit to put [my husband] and I together when we were 19 and 21 years old." Thanking fans and supporters, she continued, "We are so deeply honored that we get to be part of Home Town and in your living rooms every week." Of course, in true Napier fashion, a post wouldn't be complete without a little humor. Erin concluded her caption, "Only 2.5% of shows make 100 episodes. Ben pointed out this makes him basically the Tom Selleck to our Blue Bloods."

Fans and friends flocked to the comments to join in the celebration and cheer the couple on. Jenny Marrs, who has joined the Napiers for season 2 of "Home Town Takeover," commented, "Congratulations!! Truly worth celebrating!!!!" One sincere fan wrote, "Not to mention all of us who enjoy the dose of pure goodness that comes with every episode. Love wins! Thank you." Whether they chose to comment on Erin's post or not, it's safe to say that many more fans are looking forward to celebrating the next 100 episodes.
