Last summer, Andrew Tate emerged in his bronze Bugatti, rapidly becoming ‘the most Googled man in the world’ – surpassing the online search popularity of Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump.

He’s a well-known figure among those aged 12 to 24, causing concern among educators and sparking numerous debates between parents and teenage sons. But who is Andrew Tate, and what’s his background?

This documentary delves into Tate’s life, featuring previously unseen footage and interviews with supporters, past associates, detractors, and those claiming to have suffered sexual and physical abuse at his hands.

It narrates the ascent and descent of the internet’s most notorious and divisive figure, probing into questions that captivate both his followers and critics.

The documentary seeks to understand why Tate became a symbol of toxic masculinity and delves into his dramatic arrest in Romania.

It explores contrasting views: is Tate a perpetrator of serious crimes as suggested by his accusers’ lawyers, or does he represent traditional values, offering young men an escape from ‘The Matrix’?

I Am Andrew Tate airs on Channel 4 on Sunday, 7 January 2024 at 9:00PM.
