Ahead of the Season 4 premiere of Home Town, Distractify spoke exclusively with Ben and Erin about what else fans can expect in the upcoming episodes, including another major problem that they will face while filming. The couple also dished on a few behind the scenes secrets that are not revealed on camera! 

Yikes! Here is the biggest problem HGTV's Ben and Erin will face on Season 4 of 'Home Town.'

Some houses are more challenging than others, and on this season of Home Town, Ben and Erin will face one of their biggest problems to date: Termites. Erin revealed to Distractify, "Termites gave us a heart attack this season for the first time ever." Ben added: "That’s probably the main [problem] this season." 

The pesky crawlers are common with older wooden houses, and if left untreated, can cause serious damage to a building's structure.

Another secret the Southern couple clued Distractify in on: Why the books are turned around in the homes they renovate. And, it's not because of a design decision Erin made. 

The pair revealed that they look at their personal social media pages and get a lot of questions regarding the books facing the opposite way. 

"It’s not a design decision," the graphic designer laughed. "It’s a copyright issue. We can’t clear every artist and writer to use on television."

HGTV star Ben Napier once fell through a floor of a home he was renovating.

"This is the most houses we’ve ever done in a season and there’s a bigger range of housing styles," Ben teased to Distractify. Though they couldn't spill too much about the upcoming season, Erin revealed that they will be renovating one of the smallest homes fans have ever seen on the show, and the biggest ... not to mention something "that's not even really a house."

While viewers get to watch the step-by-step process of how Erin and Ben renovate a home, there are some things audiences don't get to see on TV... such as, the carpenter falling through the floor. 

"I’ve fallen through the floor of a house," Ben told us. 

However, he noted that the scary incident was not caught on camera, which his producers were a little upset about. They’re both upset because they were worried about my safety, but also because they didn’t have it on camera," he said. Adding, "It’s a problem with being big."  

As for Erin, she explained that since she is a lot smaller than Ben, she has to stand on a soap box while they're giving interviews. 

Catch the Season 4 premiere of HGTV's Home Town on Jan. 20 at 9 p.m. ET.
