When Ben Napier got behind the wheel of a bulldozer in the latest episode of Home Town, Erin Napier liked what she saw.

Erin, 38, shared two images to her Instagram Story Monday showing Ben, 40, standing in front of the machine and then driving it, writing, “Hottie alert.”

In Sunday’s episode, titled “Old World, New Build,” the HGTV stars helped a pair of newlyweds move from a tiny house to the site of older home given to them by their family. Together with the clients, Erin and Ben decided the best option was to knock down the existing house and create a fresh design to match their “eclectic, English apothecary style.”

However, there was one scene that didn’t leave Erin swooning.

When the couple sorted through discarded furniture in an old barn on their clients’ property, Erin battled insects, complaining to Ben, “Mosquitoes are eating me alive.”

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

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

In a previous Home Town episode this season, Erin and Ben were as smitten as ever as they visited Jones College, the school where they met and fell in love in 2004.

“This is where we met,” Erin said of their alma mater, which is about 13 minutes from their current home in Laurel, Miss. “We had our first date in the student union. Everyone on both sides of our family went to school here.”

Erin and Ben have previously shared their memories of meeting at Jones.

"I remember seeing Erin the first week of school," Ben told PEOPLE. "She was walking across the student union, and she had a pixie haircut. I didn't know what a pixie cut was at the time, but I knew I liked it."

In December, Erin even admitted to having previously dated another guy in college because he “looked a little bit like Ben,” whom she had a crush on at the time.

The couple, who wed in 2008 and now have two children, 6-year-old Helen and 2-year-old Mae, marked 15 years of marriage in November.
