MANILA – Miss Universe Philippines 2014 Mary Jean “MJ” Lastimosa was recently hailed as the “sexiest vegetarian” by the local chapter of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) on Wednesday.
According to Peta, they were choosing between her and singer Geneva Cruz and models Sandra Seifert and Amanda Griffin Jacob. But Lastimosa “narrowly beat” them. The winners were chosen “based on several factors, including vote counts.”
Aside from them, other contenders include vocalist Lougee Basabas and actors Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan and Chin Chin Gutierrez.
“MJ knows that going vegetarian is the best thing that you can do for animals, the Earth, and your health. Plus, she’s living proof that being vegetarian helps keep you slim and sexy,” said Peta Asia vice president Jason Baker in a statement.
