“The Bachelor” Juan Pablo stars in Rochester local ad

Disney ABC Television Group's 2014 Winter TCA Party - Arrivals

With ABC’s The Bachelor down to its last few episodes, current Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis is already looking for his next job and paycheck. He recently starred in a Rochester, New York local commercial for Rochester Appliance. The 30-second commercial shows two women ogling over customer sales rep Juan Pablo instead of focusing on the  home appliances.

The commercial aired on the Rochester area’s local ABC channel (13WHAM) during this past Monday’s Bachelor episode.  So why Rochester?  Juan Pablo has ties to that part of New York state, as he attended Roberts Wesleyan College. He played soccer while attending.

In this past Monday’s episode, Juan Pablo took the remaining six women to his hometown of Miami, where one of the women (Sharleen) left mid-episode by her own accord. Sharleen explained that she would not have been able to accept a marriage proposal from Juan Pablo in a matter of a few short weeks, so she declined to continue. Maybe she got wind of the appliance commercial?

The Bachelor will be visiting the ladies’ hometowns next Monday, Feb. 24, in Week 8’s episode. Let the Fantasy Suite dates begin!
