Roseville, Calif. -- The competition to be named PETA's Sexiest
Vegetarian Next Door is heating up, and 31-year-old Roseville resident Stephanie
George-Mello just may take home the grand prize. She has beaten out
hundreds of other entrants from across the U.S. to become one of 10 female
contestants to advance to the final round in PETA's contest. Two lucky winners
(one female and one male) will each receive a free trip to Hawaii, courtesy of
the PETA Member Advantage Program.
"On average, vegetarians are slimmer and healthier than
meat-eaters are—and they save more than 100 animals a year from the
violence of factory farms, slaughterhouses, and fishing nets," says PETA
Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "One look at our radiant finalists
proves that there's nothing sexier than kindness."
A veteran of the U.S. Navy, George-Mello went vegetarian
seven years ago and has since gone vegan, as have her niece and her niece's
boyfriend. A Navy friend's wife introduced her to delicious meatless meals such
as faux-chicken pot pie, and learning about the health benefits of vegetarian
eating solidified George-Mello's determination to go meat-free. Since going
vegetarian, she feels that her health has improved significantly. Trained as an
emergency medical technician in the service, George-Mello is currently studying
to become a physician assistant. Her hobbies include anything active and
outdoors, volunteering at an animal sanctuary, rock climbing, and yoga.

and the two winners will be announced on May 21.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
