The word is out about Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis in upstate New York.

In the second of four ads for Rochester Appliance, it seems news that the reality TV star is working at the local store has spread, with customers quickly booking in-home repair appointments with the bachelor.

In the commercial that debuted online and aired locally Monday night, a man answers the phone at Rochester Appliance and after telling what sounds like an eager customer that he's not Galavis, he makes the in-home repair appointment with the Bachelor star requested by the customer. After he hangs up the phone, he hands Galavis a form, saying, "another in-home repair for you." Galavis then adds the form to a tall stack of paper.

Galavis filmed four spots for the store, which are set to roll out during the final episodes of The Bachelor. The first commercial aired last week. The remaining two ads will air locally during the last two weeks of The Bachelor, with additional content set to be posted on store owner Dean Eaton's blog.

Eaton recruited Galavis for the ads through his brother-in-law, who played soccer with the Bachelor star in college and has stayed friends with him since then. The store owner thought Galavis being on the ABC reality show offered a perfect opportunity to generate business.
