PETA has announced this year’s winners of their annual “Sexiest Vegetarian” contest. This year’s hottest plant-eaters? Tonight Show band leader Kevin Eubanks and American Idol-crooner-turned Grammy-winner Carrie Underwood (who won in 2005 as well, but dropped to runner-up last year).

This year’s runners up include our favorite babe teenage sleuth Kristen Bell (who knocked Underwood from the top spot last year), Spider-Man 3‘s Bryce Dallas Howard, the studly Joaquin Phoenix, hottie Milo Ventimiglia of Heroes, and rocker/actor Jared Leto.

Says Underwood: “I quit eating beef when I was about thirteen. I do it because I really love animals and it just makes me sad … I don’t like to watch commercials where they have meat. It weirds me out.”

Profound. Anyway, way to not eat animals, sexy celebs. But, uhm, what about the blogebrities of Grist, eh? We demand a recount.
