He’s one of the most famous chefs in the country, but there’s a side to Pete Evans that he’s kept hidden for years.
In an explosive interview with Sunday Night, the paleo enthusiast and My Kitchen Rules judge revealed details of the debilitating shyness he’s suffered since he was a child.
‘I was a really shy kid at school, that’s for sure,’ he admitted to Sunday Night journalist Alex Cullen.
‘It’s been something that’s sort of been with me all my life – even now I like to keep a little low profile, believe it or not.’
Pete insists he leads a ‘quiet life’ on a hobby farm on the NSW north coast with wife Nicola Robinson and his two daughters from a previous marriage, 12-year-old Chilli, and India, 10.
‘My family, my family unit, my kids, my wife, our animals and I live a pretty quiet life,’ Pete said.
The former Sydney restaurateur also addressed his controversial claims about sunscreen, dairy and fluoride in the in-depth interview.
The 43-year-old confirmed that, despite undying speculation of a rift, he and fellow judge Manu Feildel are actually ‘best mates’.
‘We don’t argue, we work. We work without communication – like, we work together for so long, it’s like working with your best mate,’ Pete explained.
