Alicante, Spain – What do buff Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis and stunning British singing sensation Leona Lewis have in common? They are the reigning king and queen of PETA US’ annual Sexiest Vegetarian Alive contest. PETA Europe has expanded its own contest to include people who aren’t world-famous yet – although they could be if they were to win – and 36-year-old Alicante resident Cesar Jacquet has beaten hundreds of entrants from across Europe to become one of the eight male finalists.

Cesar, a technical assistant at an ophthalmology clinic, has been vegetarian for four years and believes it has made him stronger both mentally and physically. He advocates the benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle and says that since the transition, he has felt a real difference when working out, and this has allowed him to indulge even more in his hobby of jogging with his five dogs. Cesar also has the gift of “healing hands” and is especially proud of the time he nursed a dove with a broken wing back to health.

“On average, vegetarians are slimmer and healthier than meat-eaters – and that makes them sexier too”, says PETA Europe Director Robbie LeBlanc. “One look at our radiant lineup of sexy vegetarian finalists and it’s clear that they’re all winners.”

Following four rounds of head-to-head matchups, the winners – who will each spend a weekend in the beautiful Lake District courtesy of the Lancrigg Vegetarian Country House Hotel – will be announced on 2 April.
