Winners Will Receive Stay at Luxury Boutique Hotel in London

Brixton, South London – What does Alex Christofides, a resident of Brixton, have in common with Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto and David Haye? They are all sizzling, sexy vegans! Christofides, 30, beat out other entrants to become one of four male finalists in PETA’s Hottest Vegan Competition 2016.

Hottest Vegan 2016 - Siddy

A model and photographer, Christofides went vegan after a lifetime of eating meat took its toll on his health as well as out of concern for animal suffering. “I have always loved animals”, he says about his decision to go vegan. “I have never looked back and continue to learn and love being vegan.” He is passionate about sharing the benefits of plant-based living and loves to travel as well as do yoga and gymnastics.

“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 man and one woman – to let PETA know whom you think it should select as the winners. Two winners (one male and one female) 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.
