It was a very lucky day for netizens when Edwina T. Bandong took a snap of this Cordillera hottie—people were smitten right away, and why not? With Carrot Man's resemblance to many celebrities locally and internationally (the most popular being Vic Zhou, Jang Geun Suk, even Isaac Hempstead Wright a.k.a Bran Stark of Game of Thrones, and our very own Hero Angeles and Dennis Trillo), he's a visual feast we cannot say no to. Certainly we can't get enough of Jerick Sigmaton, and thank God for his viral photos, that brought positive feels to our feeds. Here are more excuses for you to legitimize your shameless crush on this newest Internet hottie:
1. When there's inspiration, there's art. The growing number of fans of Carrot Man have already professed their love not only by liking and sharing his viral photos, but also by creating fan art and poems! Let him inspire you to unleash the artist in you, too.
2. He made us rethink what we eat. Now, bet you'll be eating carrots for realz and not just those found in those cupcakes, yes?
3. #Travelgoals level up. More than those beautiful mountains and green scenery, there is another "handsome" view to get a glimpse of in the north. Anyone up for a roadtrip anytime soon? Here's one to tick off your bucketlist. *wink*
4. You'd be proud to bring him home to mom. See how he works hard and stay content to what he has? What a noble example worth emulating.
