From handsome policeman Neil Perez to ‘Carrot Man’ Jeyrick Sigmaton, Filipinos have found a new Internet sensation!
A few months ago, Neil Perez was just a regular policeman and Jeyrick Sigmaton was a simple vegetable farmer. Now that they have both gone viral, Neil and Jeyrick are widely known and have transformed into models.
One netizen spotted a new model-worthy guy working in a simple job. Charles Joseph “CJ” Querol is a gasoline man for Seaoil Philippines Edsa with modelesque looks.
Glenda Uchi, the original poster who spotted CJ at Seaoil Quezon Avenue, shared a stolen photo of the gasoline man making him viral online.
According to Seaoil, CJ has been working for them for roughly three years and that he is not a model and they aren’t doing this as a “marketing stunt.” He is a regular employee and “sadyang pogi lang po talaga. Ganyan talaga sa SEAOIL.” (He is just really handsome. That’s how it is at SEAOIL.)
CJ was immediately interviewed by Bernadette Sembrano for ABS-CBN TV Patrol’s “Panalo ‘To” segment. In her caption, she stated that the 29-year old gasoline man has an “inspiring story” behind his “pretty face.”
When CJ was interviewed and asked why he’s working as a gasoline man instead of a model or something better, he replied that he wasn’t able to finish school. He also shared that he’s working hard for his family so they would all have something to eat.
The gasoline man filled up our eyes with tears as he shared how his father left them when he was only 12 years old. CJ gets emotional as he shares his resentment towards his father.
After his interview, International fashion designer Francis Libiran saw his picture on the Internet and gave him a try as a full time model. CJ will walk the runway for Libiran’s future fashion shows.
