Pete Twist is a main character in Round The Twist.
Pete is the oldest Twist child and twin to sister Linda, they live with younger brother Bronson and father Tony in a lighthouse. Pete is into girls especially fellow school student Fiona. He enjoys playing guitar. Pete has an ongoing rivalry with the Gribble gang (James, Tiger and Rabbit). He has a gentle nature with the ability to bring people together.
Pete is one of four students to participate in the "3rd Annual Spaghetti Pig Out" at school. He discovers a magic remote control after Badsmell accidentally lands on it. The remote can pause, rewind, repeat, play or fast forward any living thing it's aimed at, with the effects only lasting 5 minutes. When James learns about this new device, Pete believes he wants it to use against him in the competition by pressing the 'rewind' button on the remote. When Tiger announces the contestants he introduces Pete as the "Skinny but ever hungry termite Twist". During the competition after both Bessie and Tania drop out, James uses the remote not on Pete but on fellow competitor Rabbit, by pressing the 'fast forward' button. At the end of the competition, Rabbit had eaten 27 bowls to Pete's 8 bowls of spaghetti. After eating way too much too fast Rabbit brings his spaghetti up all over the audience, Rabbit is disqualified for breaking the rules making Pete the winner. Pete picks up the remote from a spaghetti covered James, points it at Rabbit and presses the 'rewind' button.
