Search On For The World’s Sexiest Vegetarian

RICHMOND, Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Animals Rights activists are now looking for vegetarians who get the general public hungry for love.

PETA2, a “youth marketing campaign” for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), is sponsoring its annual search for the world’s “Sexiest Vegetarian.”

Sexy Vegetarian spokeswoman Angela Modzelewski hopes the online contest will be a hit because, “Musicians and celebrities are just more interesting to young people, so you’ll see a lot of people on our nominees list from indie rock bands and the movies.”

Some of the celebs who may make the list include Alicia Silverstone, Pamela Anderson, Fall Out Boy drummer Andy Hurley and Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, who have worked with PETA on previous campaigns.

A list of nominees and how to vote is available at peta2.org and while this is only the second year for the PETA2 search, it’s already a coveted honor.

For instance, Modzelewski says last year’s winner, Joss Stone, was “thrilled and very proud to be picked Sexiest Vegetarian” because she supported PETA even before winning the contest.
