Yamyam is currently with his family in Bohol, and doing some farming.

He shared a glimpse of his life as a farmer on his YouTube channel.

In his vlog dated April 7, 2021, Yamyam recalls helping his family harvest rice grains when he was growing up: "Ito yung ginagawa ko kapag walang pasok sa paaralan, kumbaga summer.

"Ito yung mga ginagawa namin, nag-aani kami muna... nag-iimbak muna ng palay para meron kaming makain, meron kaming baon na kanin sa paaralan."

The 27-year-old Kapamilya talent has been living in the city in his brand new condominium unit in Quezon City, which was part of his price for winning the reality show.

He has also invested his cash prize in a bakeshop business named "Yamito's Bakeshop."

Yamyam opened the first branch of his bakery on his 26th birthday last December 8, 2019. He opened another branch in Ubay, Bohol, on March 8, 2020.
