Pete Evans Posts Raw 60 Minutes Interview On YouTube, Says He Played The News Programme Like “A Game Of Chess”

Pete Evans appeared on Nine’s 60 Minutes Sunday night, but viewers didn’t have to turn the television on to watch the episode.

At the same time the episode went to air on Nine, Evans posted the raw, unedited version of the interview on his YouTube channel.

The move follows a comment from a fan on his Facebook page who couldn’t believe Evans trusted 60 Minutes, with the celebrity chef suggesting he was playing a “game of chess” with the news program.

The fan wrote: “Pete I cannot believe you trusted 60 Minutes, well known for editing to sensationalise.

“Even the promo is not flattering to you. I wish you luck.”

Evans responded: “I trusted them to do what they do best – I hope that makes sense.

“This is a game of chess that I enjoy playing. Look at who they sent in to do the interview and how this has been perceived.”

In an Instagram post with a link to the YouTube video, Evans explained his decision to share the unedited footage of the interview: “We don’t have free to air tv so I will not be watching 60 Minutes tonight I trust they will do a wonder filled story of hope and love and bringing the community together to evolve through this period … Enjoy the show and I invite you down the rabbit hole with me.”

It is unclear whether 60 Minutes knew Evans was filming the interview.

In the YouTube video description box, Evans wrote: “Apologies as I wished to have the whole interview filmed, however we were instructed just before recording, not to film the reporter asking the questions, so you are stuck with me I am sorry,” he wrote.

In a separate social media post earlier in the week, Evans said he wanted to share the full interview in case 60 Minutes “make it a sensationalist piece.”

B&T has approached Nine for comment.
