Leno Gives Eubanks the “Sexy Veg” Tiara

Published by PETA.

Even though I work here, I didn’t quite realize the full extent of the glory in store for the winner of PETA’s World’s Sexiest Vegetarian title. But Kevin Eubanks—this year’s “Sexy Veg” co-winner with the stunning Carrie Underwood—learned exactly how prestigious his new title was last night, when Jay Leno and two dancing vegetables presented him with a lovely sash and tiara on The Tonight Show. And in case you’re wondering—no, it does not get better than that.

Here’s what Kevin told us when we informed him of his victory: “I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me. I hope this encourages people to eat better and to remember that animals are our friends and a key to a better environment. Not to mention, it’s just cool!”
