    An Oceanside teacher earned a spot as a finalist in a national contest looking for the sexiest vegetarian over 50.

    The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals accepted votes through Monday morning in search of its Sexiest Vegetarian over 50 Contest.

    James Houlton is one of about a dozen candidates on PETA’s website.

    Houlton spoke with our media partners the North County Times last week to explain how he hoped to win others over to his lifestyle.

    At 61, Houlton said he’s been a vegetarian for several decades.

    "I think if more people were aware of the suffering and cruelty, they would probably take this road as well," said Houlton.
