Peterson HD’s TV Face 

Home Depot’s deep pockets may be the dollar sponsorship behind nearly every home improvement reality TV show on the air, but the megaretailer chose a Boisean’s face to push their product on its Olympic commercials. U.S. Olympic team member Jeret Peterson, who will represent the United States in the aerial freestyle skiing competition in Torino this month, is one of nearly 200 Olympians employed through Home Depot’s Olympic Job Opportunities program. Peterson, whose appearance in the commercial includes his high-flying slope stunts, was chosen to star in Home Depot’s Olympic commercial, which will air during the Opening Ceremonies of the games on February 10.
