Rarely seen Pete Evans and wife Nicola Robinson walk their dog in Bondi two years after he was cancelled for sharing a neo-Nazi meme on Facebook
Shamed former celebrity chef Pete Evans and his wife Nicola Robinson were pictured for the first time in months as they stepped out in Sydney on Friday.
The 49-year-old, who used to host My Kitchen Rules on Channel Seven before his public downfall, dressed casually while the couple walked their dog in Bondi.
He wore a black jumper and shorts with a pair of brown boots, and sported an unusual haircut with shaved sides and a mullet at the back.

Nicola, a former model from New Zealand, dressed for comfort in black skinny jeans, a yellow T-shirt and sandals.
It marks the first time Peter and Nicola have been seen out and about since they attended Byron Bay Bluesfest back in April.
He unveiled a new look at the festival, sporting silver-grey hair and a bushy beard in a photo Nicola posted on Instagram.

The sighting came after Pete once again slammed Covid-19 vaccines earlier this year, moments after he weighed in on the death of cricket greats Shane Warne and Rod Marsh.
As an outpouring of tributes flowed on social media for the much-loved sporting icons, anti-vax trolls hijacked the devastating news to spread absurd conspiracies about Covid-19.
Footage circulated online of Pete, filmed during a Zoom call, which appeared to show him paying tribute to Shane.
He conceded he couldn’t specifically comment on the reasons of his death, but then unleashed into a rant about Covid vaccines.

In May 2020, it was announced that Pete had parted ways with Channel Seven after 10 years as a judge on My Kitchen Rules alongside Manu Feildel and guest judge Colin Fassnidge.
It effectively marked his break from the mainstream after years of flirting with off-the-wall ideas during his tenure at the network.
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.
Nicole also looked stylish dressed in black sport tights, a yellow T-shirt and black sandals
It was a rare public sighting of the ex-My Kitchen Rules judge after he came out of hiding back in April
His Instagram page was removed in February last year, 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 in November 2020, after posting a neo-Nazi meme on social media.
In May 2021, he was slapped with a $80,000 fine for trying to cash in again on Covid by flogging more fake treatments online.
It was the second time he ran foul of authorities after previously being fined $25,000 for trying to sell his so-called BioCharger for $15,000 a time on Facebook.
He insisted the light could cure COVID-19 and protect users from infection – but had no evidence to support the wild claims.
