Pete Evans is embracing a whole different look since leaving his TV career

Former television star Pete Evans has been spotted rocking a wispy mullet in new photos.

Evans, 51, formerly a judge on Seven’s My Kitchen Rules and the owner of several popular restaurants, including Hugo’s Manly and Hugo’s Lounge in Sydney, has been living a much less public life since 2020.

His wife, Nicola Watson, posted a clip of the celebrity chef enjoying the view at their wellness retreat, Evolve Sanctuary, just an hour outside of Byron Bay.

“There is one thing I always know for sure when my beautiful husband joins me for Grand Rising… there are little or no waves, or it’s blowing an onshore gale at the beach,” she wrote underneath the video.

It was a rare glimpse into his new life.

Evans was looking casual, wearing plaid, sporting a mullet, and cuddling his little dog. This is a far cry from the sleek and suited look he used to wear on Channel 7.

The mullet he is rocking is nothing short of elevated. It features some shaved bits, very generous layers, and little wispy bits sticking out.

Elaborate hair aside, Evans’ life has taken a drastic turn from his shiny television days. In 2020, he cut ties with Network Seven after over a decade on My Kitchen Rules alongside fellow celebrity chef Manu Feildel.

Before 2020, Evans had always been known for his controversial wellness views, but that certainly wasn’t his entire brand.

In 2016, he co-authored a paleo cookbook for kids, which contained a recipe for infant formula containing bone broth and liver.

That same year, during a Facebook Q&A, he recommended to a fan that they remove dairy from their diet because “calcium from dairy can remove the calcium from your bones”, which is factually incorrect.

While he often received backlash for his comments, a famous person having some quirky views on diets certainly isn’t new.

It wasn’t until the 2020 pandemic that Evan’s views became a costly problem for the former television star.

He was slapped with a $25,000 fine by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for selling a $15,000 “BioCharger” device he falsely claimed could fight Covid.

In November 2020, he was also dropped by 15 sponsors and companies after posting a meme featuring a neo-Nazi symbol to his social media.

Since then, he’s largely stayed out of the spotlight, sharing content only with followers on alternative platform Telegram.

This includes anti-vax commentary, right-wing political sentiments, and bitcoin updates.
