“Ashley is as attractive on the inside as she is on the outside because she has chosen a lifestyle that’s kind to animals, the planet, and her own health,” said PETA Special Projects Manager Alicia Woempner in a press release. “The more people get to know her, the more likely they are to say, ‘No, thanks,’ to chicken nuggets and cow’s milk, and that’s a good thing for everyone.”
For winning, Frohnert gets a free vacation to Maui, Hawaii.READ MORE: FAN N'ATION: Returning April 17
Frohnert Joined Larry Richert and John Shumway on the KDKA Radio Morning News. She says she entered the contest because she thought it, “would be a great way to raise some vegan awareness in the Pittsburgh region.”
