After unsuccessfully auditioning for the fifth series of Big Brother in 2004, Bennett was selected as one of the original housemates for the seventh series in 2006. He was the bookmakers' favourite throughout and eventually won with 61.2% of the final vote.

The show was accused by some of exploiting Bennett's Tourette's syndrome. The Tourette Syndrome Association (TSA) initially expressed concern that others with the condition would be mocked, though they later softened their stance, a TSA spokesperson said: "What it has done is put Tourette's on the map". A Channel 4 spokesperson said "Pete's attitude to his condition is a really positive one and that's helped to educate and inspire people [...] "He's a very positive role model and he's been a great housemate."

Bennett's autobiography, Pete: My Story, was published in hardback in November 2006 and reissued in paperback in 2007 as My Journey With Tourettes.

Bennett was lead singer in a band called Daddy Fantastic, but he left the band after agreeing with a record label that he should become a solo artist. He wrote music with songwriter and record producer Guy Chambers, but failed to gain commercial success with any releases. Bennett went on to form another band, Pete Bennett And The Love Dogs, which played at Glastonbury 2007 and venues such as IndigO2 (The O2) London and The Cavern Club in Liverpool.

In 2013, he guest starred on the web series GIFTED in the pilot episode.
