Erin Napier Gets Attacked by Mosquitoes on What Might be Her ‘Last Junkin’ Trip’ in “Home Town” Sneak Peek — Watch (Exclusive)

Erin Napier Gets Attacked by Mosquitoes on What Might be Her ‘Last Junkin’ Trip’ in “Home Town” Sneak Peek — Watch (Exclusive)

"Mosquitoes are eating me alive,” Erin tells husband Ben in a preview of Sunday's episode

Ben Napier is excited to explore an old barn on their clients’ property in the next episode of Home Town — but Erin Napier, who battles insects as they sort through discarded furniture, is less enthusiastic about the task.

“The barn is not in the best of shape, which means the junkin’ oughta be better,” Ben explains in a PEOPLE exclusive sneak peek of Sunday’s episode.

“This is neat,” Ben proclaims, picking up a five-sided table. Erin then finds its missing top, calling it “beautiful.”

“Mosquitoes are pretty bad in here,” Erin tells Ben, asking, “Hold up, is there, like, a bug in my hair?”

“I think it’s just the breeze blowing,” Ben tries to assure her. “I don’t see anything, baby.”


“This is what happens when you go junkin,’” Erin says.

While Erin tells Ben that a slab of walnut wood he finds “looks expensive,” and admits a colorful shelf is “very on brand” for the house they’re working on, she urges him to finish up, observing, “I feel like you’ve got a good pile here.”

“You want to look some more?” Ben suggests, to which Erin replies, “Not really. Mosquitoes are eating me alive.”

When Ben asks if Erin wants to look in another area of the barn, she’s quick to respond, “No, sure don’t,” adding, “Let’s Go.”

“This may be your last junkin’ trip,” Ben says.

“Check back with me in the winter,” Erin advises.

In the episode, titled “Old World, New Build,” the couple helps newlyweds upgrade from a tiny house to an older home given to them by their family. The HGTV stars opt to bulldoze the home and come up with a new design that suits their “eclectic, English apothecary style.”

Flying insects aren’t the only unwanted visitors Erin has faced on the show this season.

In January’s premiere, Erin was startled to uncover a lizard while removing a shutter from a house she and Ben were renovating for a Canadian family relocating to Laurel, Miss.

“I hate lizards,” she proclaimed. “I really didn’t expect to find anything. That was upsetting.”

Erin went on to say that she's “horrified by lizards," adding, “I know it doesn’t make sense.”

“To me, lizards and snakes are the exact same thing,” she continued.

When Ben asked how she felt about frogs, she wasn't a fan of them either. “She thinks of frogs and lizards as snakes with legs,” Ben says.

“This is my irrational fear,” Erin admitted. “I get scared of a lizard and someone thinks ‘Well, this is funny’ and they get the lizard and try to put it on me and then I would die.”
