BIRMINGHAM MAN IS FINALIST IN PETA’S ‘HOTTEST VEGAN’ COMPETITION
Winners of Annual Contest Will Receive an Eight-Course Gourmet Vegan Meal for Two at Gauthier Soho
Birmingham– What does Birmingham native Jim Dilkes have in common with Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto, and David Haye? They’re all sizzling, sexy vegans! The 27-year-old beat out numerous other entrants to become one of seven male finalists in PETA’s UK and Ireland’s Hottest Vegan Competition 2017.
Dilkes calls himself a “health freak”. The office worker says, “My journey into veganism has allowed me to be a better version of myself – mind, body, and soul.” He lost 6 stone by following a plant-based diet and choosing a healthy lifestyle! “There is nothing negative about veganism … it was an absolute no-brainer,” he adds.
“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 Elisa Allen. “Each one of the finalists in PETA’s contest is a testament to how sexy vegans are – inside and out.”

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. Each winner – one man and one woman – will receive an eight-course vegan taster menu for two at top London restaurant Gauthier Soho.
Voting on the finalists to help PETA determine the winners will run until 28 July. Winners will be chosen by PETA based on several factors, including vote count, and will be announced by 4 August. See the full contest details here.
Dilkes is available for interviews. For more information and to vote in the contest, please visit PETA.org.uk.
