The photos of a 21-year old Igorot carrying a basket of carrots, tagged as the “Carrot Man” went viral online as Netizens responded enthusiastically to the pictures of the handsome and industrious Igorot.
The photos were captured by Edwina T. Bandong and company while on their way to Sagada for a tour. She then posted the pictures on her Facebook page, where they generated more than 1,300 shares and thousands of likes within a short period of time.
The pictures were also shared by Positive Outlook Plus, where they gained more than almost 3,000 shares and still counting.
The “Carrot Man” has been found out later to be Jeyrick Sigmaton, who is discontinued his studies because he has to help earn a living. He is the eldest of 7 siblings and a residence of Ogo-og, Barlig, Mountain Province.
He is the son of Melvin and Ronalie Sigmaton.
The photos continue to make the rounds on social media sites as Netizens likened him to Korean star Choi Minho of the singing group SHINee and actor Jang Geun Sook; Filipino stars, Dennis Trillo, Hero Angeles, and Alden Richards (for his small dimples).
