So do reality TV celebs love animals more than everybody else? Probably not, but the two people named Man and Woman of the Year by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals just happen to have reality TV connections.The woman is Ellen DeGeneres, right, soon to be a judge on American Idol, and the man is Tim Gunn, host of Project Runway.
PETA cited Ellen's decision to go vegan in 2008 and her use of her talk show to "highlight a cruelty-free lifestyle."
Gunn was praised for his anti-fur stance. He narrated the PETA video Fashion Victims, about the cruelty of the fur trade and the use of snakes in clothing, and promotes designers who use animal-friendly fabrics, PETA says in a news release.
