Described as the ‘stereotypical stoner bro,’ Chad appeared in a skit with British superstar Adele when she hosted the show in 2020. 

In 2020, he released a movie based on his life, The King of Staten Island, cementing his status as a true breakout star – following in the footsteps of Kristen Wiig. 

However, more recently, Pete has become known across the globe thanks to his relationship with megastar Kim Kardashian.
