Winners Will Receive Stay at Luxury Boutique Hotel in London

Bristol – What does Siddy Bennett, a resident of Bristol, have in common with Ellie Goulding, Natalie Portman and Jessica Chastain? They are all sizzling, sexy vegans! Bennett, 26, beat out other entrants to become one of four female finalists in PETA’s Hottest Vegan Competition 2016.

Bennett has been vegan for four years, a lifestyle change she made after watching the documentary Earthlings. As the lead singer in her band, Wildflowers, she loves using the HappyCow app to find vegan-friendly food on the road while touring. “I am fiercely passionate about protecting animals and really enjoy finding cruelty-free alternatives … and sharing these delights with the world”, she says.

“Vegans are, on average, slimmer and healthier and have more energy than their meat-eating peers – plus, there’s nothing hotter than compassion”, says PETA Director Mimi Bekhechi. “All the finalists are already winners because they eat delicious, healthy foods that don’t harm a hair, feather or fin on an animal’s body.”

You can vote for your favourite contestants – one woman and one man – to let PETA know whom you think it should select as the winners. Two winners (one female and one male) will each receive a one-night stay for two at the luxury boutique hotel La Suite West in London, which will include a vegan breakfast as well as a dinner prepared by vegan Head Chef Nik Heartland at its animal-free restaurant, RAW.

Voting on the finalists to help PETA determine the winners will run until 17 June. Winners will be chosen by PETA based on several factors, including vote count, and will be announced on 21 June. See the full contest details here.
