This Farmer Went From Hauling Carrots To A Modeling Career Thanks To The Internet

In February, Jeyrick Sigmaton, a farmer living in Sagada, Mountain Province in the Philippines, blew up on the internet after someone watching him haul (what looks like) a million carrots while wearing a grey hoodie shot a picture of him. The picture was shared on social media, quickly making Sigmaton a viral sensation and turning #carrotman into a trending hashtag. Unlike your barista, carrot man never expected to be discovered at work.

Now, the 21-year-old farmer is dumping the carrots, taking off his dirt-stained clothes, and making the transition from agriculture to modeling.
