Disgraced chef Pete Evans resurfaces online with a wild Viking inspired haircut – after he was banned from social media for spreading anti-vaxxer conspiracy theories

Disgraced celebrity chef Pete Evans has surfaced on Instagram with a wild new haircut, over a year after he was banned from the platform for spreading conspiracy theories.

The My Kitchen Rules judge, 49, appeared on his wife Nicola Robinson’s Instagram Stories on Sunday, looking world away from his days as a clean-cut TV star. 

In the post, a shirtless Pete was pictured with an unruly mohawk hairdo as he lounged shirtless on the beach.

Nicola fawned over Pete’s new ‘do in the caption, comparing it to the mohawk hairstyle worn by Ragnar Lodbrok in Netflix series Vikings.  

‘Fluffy Ragnar’ the former glamour model cooed, presumably also referring to Pete’s prominent body hair. 

Once a small screen star, Pete has all but vanished into obscurity in recent years following a string of controversies stemming from his belief in anti-vaxxer conspiracy theories.

After being banned for several mainstream social media sites, Pete now communicates with his fanbase via Telegram, an encrypted messaging app that is often used by conspiracy theorists to broadcast their beliefs.

Pete’s new appearance is worlds away from the squeaky-clean image he maintained while starring on Seven cooking show My Kitchen Rules.

In fact, the once youthful-looking restaurateur appears to have aged decades since quitting his television career two years ago.

It effectively marked his break from the mainstream after years of flirting with off-the-wall ideas during his tenure at the network.

Now free from the contractual constraints of mainstream network television, Pete began spouting his non-scientific beliefs about vaccines and the Covid-19 pandemic on social media.

Pete was kicked off Facebook for sharing misinformation in December 2020. 

His Instagram page was also removed in February 2021, with the company issuing a statement that read: ‘We don’t allow anyone to share misinformation about Covid-19 that could lead to imminent physical harm or about Covid-19 vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts.’  

Pete was also dropped by 15 sponsors and companies in the space of 48 hours last November, after posting a neo-Nazi meme on social media.
