Harrow, Middlesex – What do Harrow resident Nikolajs Vascilovs and Bill Clinton, Alicia Silverstone, Natalie Portman and Joaquin Phoenix have in common? They are all sizzlingly sexy vegans and vegetarians! PETA is now on a mission to find sexy but not-quite-world-famous counterparts to the celebrity vegetarians. Nikolajs has beaten out hundreds of entrants from across Europe to become one of eight male finalists in PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian contest.

Inspired by his girlfriend, Nikolajs went vegetarian a year ago. Three months ago, he decided to ditch dairy products and all other animal products to go vegan. Nikolajs will be studying advertising at university this autumn, and he will surely see himself through many an evening of intense study with his favourite vegan food: soya ice cream!

“On average, vegetarians are healthier and have more energy than meat-eaters-and that makes them sexier”, says PETA Special Projects Coordinator Abi Izzard. “One look at our radiant line-up of compassionate, sexy vegetarian finalists and it’s clear that they’re all winners.”

People can vote for their favourite contestants to let PETA know who they think PETA should choose as the two winners – one male and one female. As well as the finalists’ popularity with voters, in picking the winners PETA will also consider their commitment to the animal rights cause and, of course, how hot they are! The winners – who will each receive a bundle of prizes from some of the UK’s top ethical companies, such as The Throw Company, Vintage Roots, The Redwood Wholefood Company, Bulldog and Bourgeois Bohème – will be announced on 24 September.
