One thing we can't stand about vegetarians is how full of themselves they are. Just because they don't indulge in a cheeseburger or steak, they feel the urge to tell everyone in earshot about it. As such, the notorious attention whores at PETA recently launched its annual online "Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities" contest, naming a couple of Hollywood celebrities the sexiest vegetarians on the planet in an effort to say, "Hey, these two eat like rabbits! You should too!"
Well, we can play that game too. In an effort to show that even meat eaters can be rich and famous with ridiculously good looks, we've rounded up 16 of the sexiest meat-eating hunters on the planet -- eight women and eight men -- to determine who among them is the sexiest omnivore on Earth. The winners get well, nothing, other than our undying affection and the chance to tell every PETA member where they can shove their celery.
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 July 31.
