(SPOT.ph) Ten local celebrities are up against international stars for PETA's "Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity" award, reports ABS-CBN News. Over 300 contestants are nominated for the contest which aims to discourage people from eating meat.
Local runners are sexy cover girls Geneva Cruz, Juliana Palermo and Alicia Mayer; models Isabel Roces and Raya Mananquil; singer Lougee Basabas; and actresses Yasmien Kurdi, Chin-Chin Gutierrez, and actors Carlos Agassi and Raymond Bagatsing. They are pitted against Hollywood stars Natalie Portman, Tobey Maguire, Milo Ventimiglia and Portia de Rossi, musicians Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Leona Lewis. Even Barbie Hsu of Meteor Garden fame is in the running.
"When you look at the more than 300 gorgeous contestants in this year's poll, it's clear that there can be no bones about it-a vegetarian diet makes you beautiful, inside and out," said PETA Asia vice president for international operations Jason Baker.
According to the report, the public may vote for their favorites through PETA’s website until June 23 but the winner will ultimately be chosen by the animal rights group.
