A good-looking farmer, who was first spotted carrying baskets of carrots in the Cordillera region of the Philippines, must be oblivious to the attention he’s now getting from netizens all over the world.
Edwina T. Bandong saw the random hot guy while she and her companions were en route to Sagada, a popular tourist destination. Giving in to the request of one of her friends who had an instant crush on the cute farmer, Bandong took several snaps of the rising internet sensation we now know as Carrot Man.
Bandong uploaded the photos on her Facebook account last February 11, and although it took a few days before the Internet noticed, the Cordillera bae’s shot at fame was destiny waiting to happen.
Filipino DJ Nicole Hyala saw the viral post about #CarrotMan on her social media feeds and decided to talk about him during her live broadcast last February 23. Soon enough, local media and the Twitter world paid more attention to the mystery man.

Thanks to GMA News, Carrot Man is now identified as Jeyrick Sigmaton and according to his Facebook profile, he’s from Kadaclan, Mountain Province, Philippines.
Sigmaton’s good looks didn’t go unnoticed on migme, too, and several users posted a collage of photos that feature him and his celebrity lookalikes!
