He first publicly threw his support behind Donald Trump in June.

But conspiracy theorist Pete Evans, 47, has revealed his admiration for the controversial leader actually actually began in 2016, while he was still employed as a judge on My Kitchen Rules.

‘I was never interested in politics, I tell you. It wasn’t until four years ago, that around this time Donald Trump was running for president up against Hillary Clinton, that’s when I… got a little bit closer to what politics is.’ Pete explained.    

‘There was such distain against this man, and for months and months I would go into my workplace and the same people every day would be talking about Trump – this is before he was elected – saying the most vile, horrible things,’ he continued. 

Pete, who starred on My Kitchen Rules with Manu Feildel and Colin Fassnidge before being boned in May, eventually decided to take a stand.

‘After a month I couldn’t hold my tongue anymore and I said to these people, ‘Why are you judging somebody on a job they haven’t done yet, and may not get the job? Why don’t you hold your opinions and your judgment.’
