Delray Beach, Fla. – It’s time for PETA to name this year’s Sexiest Vegan Next Door—and 29-year-old Delray Beach resident Korin Sutton might just take home the title. He beat out hundreds of other entrants from across the U.S. to become one of 10 male contestants to advance to the final round. Visitors to can now help PETA decide whom it should pick as the two lucky winners—one male and one female—who will each receive a free vacation for two to Maui, Hawaii, courtesy of Humane Travel.

“All of PETA’s finalists are as attractive on the inside as they are on the outside, thanks to their decision to choose meals that are kind to animals, the planet, and their health,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “On average, vegans are fitter and trimmer than meat-eaters are—and of course, they spare the lives of more than 100 animals every year.”

Going vegan helped Sutton pack on so much muscle that he became a competitive bodybuilder, quickly racking up a series of wins for Team Clean Machine and the PlantBuilt Vegan Muscle Team—two teams of plant-fueled bodybuilders that support groups that promote vegan eating. And Sutton didn’t stop with improving his own health—he launched his own business, BodyHD Fitness, to use his skills as a personal trainer and nutrition coach to help others make healthier choices for their bodies. (His most valued client? His mother!) A veteran of both the Marine Corps and the Navy, Sutton enjoys spending his free time on the go—cycling, playing racquetball, and stand-up paddle boarding.

Voting to help PETA determine whom it should select as the winners ends at noon EDT on May 1. PETA will select the winners based on several factors, including vote count. See the full contest details here. Winners will be notified and announced by May 6.

“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
