PHOTOS: Meet ‘Carrot Man’ of Cordillera – netizen’s new apple of the eye

Netizens are going crazy over the viral photo of a guy who lives in Cordillera who was snapped carrying carrots.

Facebook user Edwina T. Bandong posted several photos of the gorgeous “Carrot Man” on the social media site and many were surprised to see that the mystery guy is a carbon copy of Korean superstar, Jang Geun Suk

We did some further digging and found out that the real name of “Carrot Man” is Jeyrick Sigmaton. Based on his Facebook profile, he resides in Kadaclan, Mountain Province.

Jeyrick’s photo proved to be a huge hit that the hashtag Carrot Man trended on Twitter.

The Igorots or Cordillerans refer to the Austronesian ethnic groups in the country inhabiting the mountains of Luzon. Known as highlands people, they live in the six provinces of the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) including Mountain Province, Kalinga, Abra, Ifugao, Apayao, Benguet as well as the city of Baguio.

Marky Cielo, the first known Igorot in Philippine showbusiness, became a household name after winning the Starstruck competition in 2006. In December 7, 2008, the budding star was found dead inside his room in Antipolo City. His cause of death remains a mystery but persistent reports claim that he died of suicide
