MANILA, Philippines—Model and TV host Amanda Griffin Jacob is the Philippines’ Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity, a result of a month-long online vote conducted by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) showed.

Jacob, a proud mother of two boys, faced tough competition against Delara lead singer Lougee Basabas, FHM cover girls Alicia Mayer and Geneva Cruz, and models Sandra Seifert and Julia Sniegowski.

Griffin, who has appeared on the cover of numerous magazines and hosted several TV shows, turned vegetarian in 2007. She is also a member of the international environmental lobby group GreenPeace,

“Amanda knows that going vegetarian is the best thing that you can do for animals, the Earth, and your health,” PETA Asia Vice President Jason Baker said in a statement released Wednesday. “Plus, she’s living proof that being vegetarian keeps you slim and sexy.”

The competition was decided through several factors, including a month-long online voting at PETA’s website PETAAsiaPacific.com.

“Other popular contenders included actors Chin Chin Gutierrez, Raymond Bagatsing, and Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan as well as international stars such as former US President Bill Clinton, musicians Jason Mraz and Paul McCartney, talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres, and actors Natalie Portman, Tobey Maguire, Jared Leto, and Anne Hathaway,” PETA said.

“When I was eating meat, I had a lot of digestive issues,” Jacob said.

“Now that I’m vegetarian, I feel wonderful both mentally and physically. Most importantly, I know I’m giving my children the best possible start in life,” she said.

Griffin advised others who want to become a vegetarian to simply “do it.”

“Your mind and body will thank you for it,” she added.

    Am I the only one that noticed that the headline of this article says ‘Vegan’ while the article itself is about ‘vegetarians’ Please tell me this was just a typographical error and the writers at the Inquirer do not believe that vegans and vegetarians are the same.
