Peter Czerwinski (born Piotr Czerwinski), better known online as Furious Pete, was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 30 November 1985, so under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius and holding Canadian nationality – he is popular for his YouTube channel as well as for being a competitive eater and a bodybuilder.
Childhood and Education
Pete’s childhood was not easy at all, as he was battling anorexia while both of his parents had health issues as well – he hasn’t talked much about them as he doesn’t want to get them involved in the media. He hasn’t mentioned having any siblings either, which is why he is considered to be an only child.
When his condition worsened, Pete was brought to The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto where doctors recommended bodybuilding as a way to recover. He enrolled at high school and was popular there due to his already well-built figure, as he had been going to the gym for two years already. It is not known whether or not he dated anyone during those years, but rumors say that he has been with numerous girls throughout the years.
After he matriculated from high school, Pete decided to completely focus on his career of a bodybuilder, and did not enroll at college.
Career of a Bodybuilder and a YouTuber
Pete has a digestion rate which is slower than that of an average person. He eats nine times per day, and soon after he learned about his digestion rate disorder, he realized this could help him beat eating records.
After beating his first eating record, he continued on, and started uploading his eating videos onto his YouTube channel. He has now broken 14 Guinness World Records in competitive eating – some of these include eating seven bananas in less than two minutes, 15 hamburgers in under 10 minutes, drinking 0.75l of olive oil in under a minute, and eating 17 Jaffa Cakes in less than a minute.
After breaking all these records, Pete decided he might as well participate in the “Canada’s Got Talent” – for his act, he ate five hard-boiled eggs, three Canadian bacons, two bananas, and drank a bottle of milk all in 51 seconds, but this wasn’t enough to get him through to the next round.
Pete is the star of “The Story of Furious Pete” documentary film, which follows his life and which was first shown at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. A dish called “The Furious Pete” is named after him – it consists of 20 pieces of bacon, 20 pieces of cheese, and five pounds of fries – Pete was the first person to to eat all of that out of more than 1,500 attempts so far.
Pete launched his YouTube channel on 10 August 2006, and there are currently more than 5.1 million people subscribed to it, while it also counts nearly over one billion views of all his videos combined – on the channel, he mostly uploads eating challenges, speed eating, and other videos relating to eating (overeating).
Personal Life and Relationships
Pete is very secretive when it comes to his love life as he hasn’t shared much about his past and present relationships with the public, but he sometimes allows his fans to have a glimpse into his current relationship status.
Judging by a picture he uploaded onto his Instagram account in early 2019, Pete currently seems to be dating a mysterious lady – according to his caption, they have been together for nearly 10 years now, but haven’t exchanged their wedding vows. They don’t seem to have any kids either, but have a dog whose name is Furious.
Pete hasn’t talked about any other women he might have dated before his current girlfriend, however, rumor has it that the popular YouTuber was dating a girl he met at the gym when he was around 20 years old. The two were dating for two years before deciding to split, which was just before he met the mysterious lady he is currently dating.
Hobbies and Interests
Pete loves to travel and he often goes on tours around the country in search of new eating challenges, often taking his girlfriend with him. He hasn’t travelled only around the US, but to other continents as well, including Europe and Asia – the last place he visited was the Chinese Wall in China. He is a huge lover of animals, and sees his dog as his closest friend, however, as much as he loves animals, he cannot force himself to stop eating meat. He likes the feeling which he gets when he exercises, and although he began going to the gym of health issues, he has since started to enjoy it.
Pete enjoys participating in all the extreme sports – the main reason behind this is his addiction to adrenaline, and the feeling of being alive. He does a bit of cosplay as well, and almost always dresses up as food.
Pete is somewhat popular for his clothing line which he created only to mock the PETA animal activist organization – the vegan community have turned against Pete after he began mocking the organization, but he responded to questions regarding the matter in his ‘Q&A’ videos, stating that humans cannot live healthily without eating meat.
Pete battled testicular cancer twice in the past and won, but the third time came in 2017, and then he announced in January 2019 that it had come back and that he had to remove his second testicle, meaning that he will now have to undergo testosterone replacement therapy as long as he lives.
