His black wetsuit clung to his slim frame as he emerged from the water, before returning to the sand for a barefoot stroll. 

Seemingly lost in thought, a furrow-browed Pete tucked his surfboard under one arm and began pacing down the shoreline towards a rocky walkway.

Pete cautiously made his way up the path barefoot, trying his hardest not to cut himself on the craggy landscape.  

After reaching the top of the walkway, he made his way to a public change-room to get dressed for the day. 

He emerged from the building wearing a pair of dark cargo pants and a black T-shirt that featured a doctored image of the American flag that featured a chicken icon.

In May 2020 it was announced that Pete had parted ways with Channel Seven  after 10 years as a judge on MKR alongside Manu Feildel.

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 last year.

His Instagram page was also removed in February, 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.’  

He 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. 

In July, Pete made an appearance on A Current Affair, fending off questions about a controversial hippy commune he was promoting by calling a reporter ‘fake news’.  

Delusional: 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
