See ‘Bachelor’ Peter as a Child Actor in a Sylvan Learning Center Commercial (VIDEO)
In fact, it was revealed recently that the 28-year-old appeared in a Sylvan Learning Center commercial when he was a kid, and the clip resurfaced on the internet for fans to enjoy.
The ad was apparently filmed back in 2005 and stars Peter as a young student named Mark who is struggling in school. The good news is he gets help from the Sylvan Learning Center, which helps him improve his grades.
“School was tough, then Sylvan helped me read better,” Peter says in the clip. The commercial also shows Peter surprising his mom with his improved report card by sending it to her on his skateboard.
Needless to say, Bachelor fans freaked out over the old ad, especially because so many people grew up seeing these ads on TV.
“Don’t talk to me today unless it’s about Pilot Pete being in this ad for Sylvan Learning Center as a baby #TheBachelor,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

Not to mention, Peter himself commented on the viral moment while appearing on E!’s Daily Pop. “Oh man. My voice. Thank God I don’t sound like that,” he said.
Though it’s a little embarrassing for him to have to relive, the pilot enjoyed the experience. “Yeah, it was actually a lot of fun. I really enjoyed that.”
What do you think of Peter’s commercial? Do you think he should get back into acting?
