Juan may not be cut out for appliance sales. Find out why, here.
What does Juan really want? Find out in the commercial we're airing during the finale.
Other than the actors, most of the talent behind the commercials were in their early 20's. They made me feel old. (I'm 30). Here are a few more photos of everyone in action.
Jeff Miller (esteemed actor and VoIP Master) and Sullivan Slentz (Mastermind of all positive things)
Sound Technician, Chris Vial working with Allison Roberts as she discusses with Sullivan how crazy she's about to look. She blew it out of the water.
Juan giving me marketing advise.
Aaron Gordon doing his thing...
Sully couldn't get enough of this concept. Shhhhh, we haven't aired it yet....
My wife, Juan and myself...and Sully.
Hard at work, filling out the TPS report. Office Space reference anyone?
Juan was under the weather as stated in previous posts. His nose wouldn't stop running. It made for a very busy day for Makeup/Stylist Robyn Fazio.
Other than thanking God that Juan was sick so she could be close to him, Robyn did makeup for others.

We all had a blast shooting the Juan Pablo commercials! Here are a few photos...
Aaron Gordon (left) is the finest cinematographer in the region. If you disagree with him, he'll gently convince you to change your mind. His people skills are off the charts. Sullivan Slentz (right) is the writer and director of this endeavour. He's a multifaceted, out of the box, brilliant individual. It's an honor to know him.
Both guys are always upbeat and know how to lighten the mood.
I'll leave you with what should be at the end of every blog post... a picture of my son. Many more posts with behind the scenes pictures and videos to come!
Here's the answer to the language barrier situation...
Things are starting to get out of hand with Juan Pablo as our salesman...
Juan may be a little busy... We have many other well-trained, handsome technicians if you're interested...
The first commercial aired only a week ago! Since then there has been a lot of buzz locally and nationally. The main question I've heard is, "Why would he ever do this for you?"
Juan went to college with my brother-in-law at Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester NY. When I found out Juan was going to be the next Bachelor, I immediately tried to get him to be in a commercial for me. I've grown my business via word of mouth for years and this would be a great opportunity to get more awareness of my business. With the help of my brother-in-law, I was able to get in contact with Juan. He was surprisingly open to the concept. The friendships he formed while in college made a great impact on his life, and he wanted to give back to those who have helped him. Even amidst his busy schedule, he made the time to fly up the weekend before Christmas.
He came down with a sinus/head cold just before leaving for Rochester. He could have easily canceled the trip and have been justified. Filming the commercials took about 8 hours, and he didn't complain once. He could have been home with his family or making much more money elsewhere. Instead, he was upbeat and friendly throughout the entire process. Giving back is what he chose to do, and for that I am truly grateful.
Andrea Holland (the "oh I'm just looking too" woman) is sisters with Norma Holland from 13 Wham! I did not know this until this morning. Norma covered the commercial this morning on 13 Wham!
Here's a picture of them together with Juan. I took this myself. I'm sorry for the awful angle. I should have noticed Jeff Miller's head in the background.
Andrea Holland, Juan Pablo, Dresden Engle and... Jeff Miller.
Juan Pablo finds out quickly that he may not be cut out for a salesman position.
This is the first installment of a series which will be released Mondays around 6pm. We hope you enjoy watching them. We had a great time making them. There will be many more to come!!!
