Atlanta Army Reserve chemist competes for PETA's 'Sexiest Vegan'

An Atlanta vegan is one of 10 women from across the country vying to be named PETA's “Sexiest Vegan Next Door.”

Arnisha Keaton, 25, beat out hundreds of other entrants to become a finalist, according to a news release.

The winner will get a free vacation for two to Maui, Hawaii, from Humane Travel. There is also a male category. Out of the 20 contestants, she’s the only one from Georgia.

Keaton “stopped eating meat out of compassion for animals when she was in preschool,” but went full-on vegan two years ago, according to the website.

PETA will select the winners based on several factors, including vote count. Voting ends at noon on June 21, and winners will be notified and announced on June 28.
