He was born in Spring Gulley, South Carolina, and raised in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and attended south Philadelphia High School with Frankie Avalon and Fabian. Popular lore has it that the wife of American Bandstand's host Dick Clark suggested the name "Chubby Checker" to Evans as a take-off on then-popular singer Fats Domino. In fact, the wife of Bandstand's original producer, Tony Mammarella, suggested the name to Checker. In 1964, he married the Dutch Catharina Lodders, who was Miss Universe in 1962. He "performed" "The Twist" at the 2008 Daytona 500.
