After winning the Mr. Pogi contest in Eat Bulaga, he became a regular host and performer in the said variety show and has appeared in different television shows. Rosales, however, became a well-known actor after he was paired to actress Angelika dela Cruz in the top-rating primetime drama series Esperanza and in the teen horror flick Oka Tokat. Their tandem made its way to the big screen through the blockbuster horror movie Magandang Hatinggabi. But their tandem was cut short when Dela Cruz decided to transfer to ABS CBN's rival network, GMA.
His breakout role came when he played the lead in Pangako Sa 'Yo alongside actress Kristine Hermosa. The series' success made Rosales and Hermosa the phenomenal loveteam of their time and has since appeared in different television shows and starred in blockbuster films such as Forevermore and Ngayong Nandito Ka. After the success of Pangako Sa 'Yo, he headlined another drama series, Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas, with actor Diether Ocampo. The series served as a reunion project with his long former on-and-off screen partner actress Angelika dela Cruz who had just returned to ABS CBN. After the success of Sana'y Wala nang Wakas, he starred in the epic fantasy series Carlo J. Caparas' Ang Panday.
He also played a starring role in Pangarap Na Bituin with Sarah Geronimo, Maja Salvador and Rica Peralejo and made a guest appearance in the television series I Love Betty La Fea. He was paired again to Kristine Hermosa in the legal drama Dahil May Isang Ikaw with Gabby Concepcion, Chinchin Gutierrez, Karylle and Lorna Tolentino. He also starred in other successful TV series such as Green Rose with Anne Curtis and Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig with Piolo Pascual. Rosales signed a non-exclusive contract with Viva Artists Agency in 2013.
Jericho Rosales was born in Quezon City, but was raised in Bula, Camarines Sur where he learned to speak Rinconada Bikol. His nephew is former child actor John Manalo, and his cousin is DZMM anchor Ricky Rosales. In 2000, Rosales was linked to former model Kai Palomares, with whom he has a son, Santino "Santi" P. Rosales.

During February 2014, Rosales became actively involved in a campaign to Free Mali, the lonely elephant who has been living in a small, concrete enclosure at the Manila Zoo for more that 35 years. The campaign is led by animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and works toward having Mali transferred to the Boon Lott's Sanctuary in Thailand, where she will be given all of the care and natural surroundings that the Manila Zoo cannot provide her with.
Rosales showed his support by posing for a photograph holding up a sign that reads "JERICHO ROSALES WANTS MALI FREED". He stated that "All evidences tell us that Mali is lonely and badly in need of veterinary care ... I don't understand why Mali's transfer has not already happened. She deserves a life that is more than the confines of the Manila Zoo."
