A local woman could end up named PETA’s “Sexiest Vegan Next Door 2014.”

The animal advocacy group is hosting the contest and voters will choose one man and one woman as the sexiest vegans – they’ll also get a trip to Hawaii.

“Going vegan can help make you feel better on the inside, look better on the outside, and save the lives of more than 100 animals a year,” says PETA Special Projects Manager Alicia Woempner in a press release. “On average, vegans are fitter and trimmer than meat-eaters are, and that makes them sexier, too.”

One of the female finalists is 24-year-old Ashley Frohnert of Pittsburgh.

She claims eating vegan has improved how she feels and is working with Mayor Bill Peduto to offer Meatless Mondays in city schools.
