Not too long ago, the Mountain Province native Jeyrick Sigmaton, popularly known as “Carrot Man”, became an instant heartthrob. He immediately turned into a social media phenomenon, thanks to his viral photos and videos showing him carrying baskets of carrots on his back.

After his overnight fame, where could he be now?


His charming looks earned him thousands of likes on social media. Netizens even compared him to celebrities such as Kapuso actor Dennis Trillo.


And just recently, he was again  featured on GMA’s Sunday magazine show “Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho”, where he shared how his life had been after becoming an internet superstar.

Since then, his fame attracted endorsements and a few guest appearances on television. After he became known, he also got invited to big events in his home region in the Cordilleras.

GMA News’ Instagram page also amplified his guesting on “Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho”: “‘Nung nag-viral ako, napunta ako sa iba’t ibang lugar at bansa. Nakaipon ng kaunting income mula sa mga event na siyang ginagamit ko para sa pag-aaral ng aking mga kapatid.’ — Jeyrick Sigmaton aka Carrot Man”

(When I became viral, I was able to go to different places and countries. I was able to save a little from the income I received from events I attended, which I used to support the studies of my siblings.)

Not at all affected by fame, Sigmaton still prioritizes his education and that of his siblings. Above all, he is bent on showing the world the rich culture of his tribe.

In his previous interviews, Sigmaton also thanked social media not only for changing his life, but also for bringing back attention to his beautiful hometown. JB
