- Jeyrick Sigmaton shares interest on going back to the showbiz industry, two years after he went back to Baguio.
- The internet star states that he wants to try out for Pinoy Big Brother as he heard that many people dream about experiencing the reality show themselves.
Jeyrick Sigmaton a.k.a Carrot Man was introduced to the world after his photo was published and went viral last February 2016. He was spotted by tourists, working in the Mountain Province.
He expressed how his viral photo has changed his life. Jeyrick stated “Doon ako nagulat noong pumunta si mayor, iyon ho ang sinabi, na sikat nga daw ako, pinag-uusapan sa Internet. Hindi naman kasi uso sa amin yung Facebook noon. Magtrabaho ka na lang para may pera ka, ganon ho.
Pag dumadaan ako sa mga kalsada may nasasalubong akong mga tao, ‘Uy, si Carrot Man!'”
Since then, he appeared in various GMA Network shows such as Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, Bubble Gang, Unang Hirit, Sunday PinaSaya, and Wowowin.
Jeyrick was then given a make-over, cutting his hair short and started wearing more fashionable and trendy clothes. “Noong na-makeover ako noon, doon ko ho nakita na, ‘Ay wow, ganito pala.’Parang nagulat lang ako sa sarili ko kasi noong nagbubuhat ako ng carrot noon, talagang walang ayos-ayos. Tapos noong inayusan ako, napa-wow talaga ako noon. Hindi ko naman sa pinagyayabang, pero may kagwapuhan din pala” he admitted.
He also landed some endorsement deals that took him to different countries like United Kingdom, Korea, and Thailand. But after all those, his career began to slow down and he went back to Baguio.
After two years of staying silent, Jayrick was pushed by his friends and family members to give showbiz a try once again. As a start, he mentioned that he wants to be a part of the popular reality TV show, Pinoy Big Brother.
“Inaasahan ko pong makapasok sa Bahay ni Kuya kasi ang daming nangangarap na pumasok doon. Lucky ako pag nakapasok ako doon. Kakayanin ko ‘to dahil sa sarili ko din at sa pamilya ko at sa mga taong sumusuporta sa akin. Pinakamahirap po yung mahiwalay ka sa pamilya, makapag-adjust na kahit nag-iisa ka, mabuhay na mag-isa ka, ganun po.” Jayrick said.
When he was asked about his motivation for pursuing this career path, he said that he wants to have his own house.
