Metro Atlanta women named in PETA’s ‘Sexiest Vegan Next Door’ contest

PETA has deemed two Georgians hotter than a corn cob on the grill.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals announced Thursday the three finalists of its “Sexiest Vegan Next Door” contest, which includes Alpharetta’s Tabatha James and McDonough’s Kesha Pressley.

It was a nationwide competition, so apparently metro Atlanta has an unusually high number of sexy vegans.

The organization’s website says it chose entrants based on their “enthusiasm for vegan living” using answers to a questionnaire and “PETA’s assessment of the quality of the image you submit.”

All the applications were winnowed to 20 vegans, who can be seen here, and then the final three. The winner gets a free vacation for two to Hawaii.

North Fulton’s James is a marketing director at a law firm who became vegan after watching the documentary “Vegucated” a year and a half ago, according to PETA. She also runs a vegan snack-box company with the help of her daughter and husband.

Henry County’s Pressley is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force who was injured while serving and went on to volunteer full-time helping PETA transport animals in abusive situations to adoptive homes.

The third finalist is a librarian at a Washington, D.C. high school.

The public can help chose the winner by voting online until noon on May 13.
