He’s got his own Netflix special - and it’s causing controversy
In 2017, Pete released The Magic Pill, a documentary which examines the controversial Ketogenic diet, which claims to have the ability to eradicate some common illnesses. It was picked up by Netflix last year, and has caused controversy recently for some of its assertions that it’s able to manage autism, asthma and cancer. At the time of its release on the streaming service, the AMA (Australian Medical Association) demanded Netflix pull the doco, saying the “risk of misinformation is too great.”
He sells his own branded pet food
It’s not just humans who get to sample Pete Evans’ food - he’s also got his own range of dog and cat food too!
Pete has been doing TV since 2001
He began his TV career with a show on the Lifestyle Channel, titled Home, before appearing on a range of specials for Foxtel, as well as Fresh: Cooking With the Australian Woman’s Weekly on Channel Nine. He became a judge on MKR in 2010.
Pete’s been married twice
Pete was first married to Astrid Edlinger, whom he was with for 11 years, and has two daughters, Chilli, 14, and Indii, 12. He met his current wife Nicola Robinson, in 2011. The couple got engaged under New York's Manhattan Bridge in 2014, before marrying in 2016. They now live in the Southern Highlands, in New South Wales.
He loves getting nude
The couple regularly go naked on their remote property, and their social media posts often reflect this. Pete explained during an interview on Sunrise that the couple were "usually" naked on their farm. "That's the beautiful thing about having a farm, why do you need to wear clothes?" he said.
