Kevn Eubanks is named PETA's sexiest male vegetarian. Carrie Underwood gets the female nod.
Jay Leno couldn't be happier about Eubanks’ triumph. Leno mentioned the contest on The Tonight Show several times during the final week of the contest, saying that he “want[ed Kevin] to win to bring honor to [the Tonight Show] stage.” Eubanks—who has long been known for his buff body in addition to his musical skills—is proof that turning to veggies doesn’t mean turning down muscle. “Every night before the show, I make sure [my] guitar is perfectly tuned. And every day, I do the same for my body—with healthy, vegetarian meals,” Eubanks has said. “It’s the easiest way to stay fit and feel great.”
Carrie Underwood who is celebrating her second win as “World's Sexiest Vegetarian”—she also won in PETA’s 2005 poll—is a lifelong animal lover. “I quit eating beef when I was about thirteen,” she has said. “I do it because I really love animals and it just makes me sad. … I don’t like to watch commercials where they have meat. It weirds me out.” Known to sport “V Is for Vegetarian” shirts at her concerts, the singer frequently mentions that vegetarian pizza is one of her favorite foods. What’s more, Underwood is also known to rescue stray animals.
