- Former TV star back in business with pricey ‘wellness retreats’
- Evans had all but vanished due to several scandals in 2020
- The controversies derailed his multi-million dollar career
Disgraced celebrity chef Pete Evans is back in business after lying low for a couple of years after a series of scandals derailed his multi-million dollar career.
The former TV star, 50, had all but vanished into obscurity due to controversies stemming from his anti-vaxxer conspiracy theories.
But Evans, who made his name hosting My Kitchen Rules, is being ruthlessly mocked for his comeback venture and the huge amounts he’s charging for courses.
A ‘fasting retreat’, where participants pay $2,500 to ‘not eat’, has come in for particularly strong criticism and a healthy dose of skepticism.

After being banned from mainstream social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram, Evans now communicates with his fans through Telegram – an encrypted messaging app often used by conspiracy theorists to broadcast their beliefs.
‘Hey I’ve got a quick update for you, we’re going to be launching another fasting retreat late February so we’ll probably announce that either tonight or tomorrow or put it up on the website, so if anyone’s keen on coming, we’d love to have you,’ Evans said on Telegram.
‘Our guests are into day four of their fast at the moment and they went through a breathwork ceremony this morning and it’s pretty special.
‘We’ve had some wonderful transformations happening so yeah love to see you all I’ll put the details in a post tonight, see ya.’
