PETA has more high-profile celebrity dollars rolling in these days than the collection plate at the Church of Scientology. Take, for instance, PETA’s annual Sexiest Vegetarian contest.
As we’ve written before, these “animal-lovers” line up dozens of celebs for an online vote and advertise the heck out of the promotion. Almost every celebrity entered tweets or posts to Facebook in support of the effort, further widening PETA’s pop culture reach. It’s that reach and committed advocacy that sets this anti-hunting group apart from their opponents. While many high-profile athletes, politicians and country singers kill animals and eat meat, few take their passions to the airwaves with as much tenacity as PETA’s Tinseltown followers. Those that do—including former vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan— are often met with public pushback. That needs to change.
That’s where our Sexiest Meat Eater competition comes in.
Last year over 2,000 hunters voted and Kristy Lee Cook and the Trump brothers took home the crown for sexiest male and female meat eaters. This year we’re back to make the same statement. In our second annual ode to protein pioneers, we’re putting 16 more steak-loving role models up for your vote. The winners get well, nothing, other than our undying affection and the chance to tell every PETA member where they can shove their celery. See if Kristy and the Trumps can defend their crowns.
Click through the photos, learn more about these meat-loving idols and cast your vote below for your favorite male and female. Winners will be selected on Aug. 7.
- <h2>WINNER: Tiffany Lakosky</h2>Without a doubt one of the most female hunters around, Tiffany Lakosky and her husband, Lee, have made a name for themselves on their show, <i>The Crush</i>—and the title makes sense, given the emotions of her male fans. <p> <strong>Sexiest Moment:</strong> When the <a href="http://www.petersenshunting.com/2013/01/25/hunting-industry-boycotts-eastern-outdoor-show-over-ar-ban-forces-cancellation-2/" target="_blank">hunting industry boycotted the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show over the event's AR ban</a>, Tiffany was one of the personalities taking a stand, saying in a joint statement with Lee, "We can’t support a show that doesn’t completely support the Second Amendment... Anyone who believes this isn’t a big deal is wrong. It is a big deal because this is where it starts. There’s a reason for the Second Amendment and we all need to band together and stand behind it."
