Ben Napier was a very successful man even before the Home Town show. Him and his wife are famous in their city and they run extremely popular Instagram account with over half a million followers. But since their deal with HGTV, his popularity skyrocketed.
First season of Home Town was broadcast in 2017 and the series is currently in its fourth season. HGTV was apparently more than satisfied with the response the show is getting and decided to create a spin-off. In 2021, Home Town Takeover will hit the screens and this time Napiers will be making over the whole towns!
Napier lives quite frugal lifestyle. So how exactly he enjoys his sizable net worth? He drives a vintage car – 1962 Chevy pickup truck in a great condition. Such a nicely restored vehicle is definitely worth some serious money.
