Disgraced former celebrity chef Pete Evans has fallen victim to a prank at the hands of The Chaser amid his own pursuit of politics.
Evans, who was banned from social media platforms for spreading COVID misinformation, recently announced he’d run for Senate.

Satirical site The Chaser, however, snatched up the domain “petevansforsenate.com”.
When users go to the website, instead of finding out about Evans’ political campaign, they’re redirected to the Federal Government’s page on vaccinations.
“Thought we’d help Pete out by setting up a campaign site on his behalf,” Chaser Interns tweeted.
Evans will run for the Australian Senate under former One Nation senator Rod Culleton’s new The Great Australian Party.
The party said the 48-year-old has as “unwavering commitment to advancing the freedoms of all Australians”.
It comes a week after Evans spoke at a rally in Sydney protesting mandatory vaccines – despite the vaccine being voluntary.
“I don’t have the answers. No one is coming to save you except you,” a barefoot Evans told the crowd.
“Each and every one of you has to stand up in whatever capacity you can.
“I begged people I thought could change the future of Australia. I f**king begged.”
Protesters marched with placards with slogans such as “herd immunity of vaccines is a scam” and “your body, your choice”.
