Candyman Pushes The Boundaries Once Again With 'The World's Biggest House Party'
What do you get when you put more than 1,000 scantily-dressed guests together with an unlimited supply of alcohol and chuck in some fireworks? A Candy Shop Mansion Party - obviously.
And here's the first teaser clip of the annual party, which was held on 1 December 2018:
If you didn't already know about Travers Beynon - aka 'the Candyman' - or, more likely, you've been living under a rock, chances are you're intrigued now.
Well, let me tell you: he's a multi-millionaire playboy, successful serial entrepreneur, husband, generous boyfriend, doting father of four, fitness fanatic, super car collector, race car driver and the managing director of an internationally recognised company.
We tried to disguise it within the list but yes, you read husband and boyfriend correctly. In fact, the 47-year-old shares a private life with his devoted wife with numerous girlfriends.
Admittedly, this is no tricky juggling act - he sleeps with them all together every night, and says that's the 'easy part'. No shit.
Not one to shy away from controversy, Travers - who openly promotes his polyamorous relationship - has had a long history of hosting lavish parties at his luxury multi-million dollar mansion on the Gold Coast, Australia.
Speaking of his most recent annual party, Travers said: "Debauchery at the Candyman party is only the starting point. I believe in diversity... the only majority is half naked women. Girls come straight and leave bi [sexual]."
Each year he hand picks over 1,000 people from across the world to attend his annual bash - because, obviously they have to look the part.
This year Travers hosted a 'Secret Society'-themed soirée in his luxurious mansion. It was dubbed 'The World's Biggest House Party' and it seems no one was lying about that.
With high security around the mansion, over 1,200 people walked through his front door in less than two hours. The guests were invited to enjoy free drinks and food for the duration of the party. Explains why there were no late attendees, doesn't it?
Bottles of Dom Pérignon were flying off the shelf along with Moët, Gentleman Jack and Grey Goose Vodka. Guests were encouraged to lose themselves for a day and leave their worries at home.
They got the chance to enjoy DJ sets from internationally-recognised artists, including Travers' son Valentino Beynon.
With a show-stopping entrance, Travers arrived at the party appearing through a cloud of smoke and onto a floating stage along the river that the luxurious 18-bedroom mansion backs onto. He was surrounded by stunts on jet skis and fly-boarding, while appearing to 'walk on water'.
It is reported the party cost over AUD $1,000,000 (US $707,000 / £540,000).
Travers likes to compare his business life to his private life, in the sense of creativity and initiative.
He explained: "What I'm like in business, life or sport, I'm like that in bed. They love my imagination and creativity. You need that when you've got multiple girls."
We'll take your word for it, Travs.
His posts on Instagram include lavish parties and naked women, but during the day Travers lives in a normal home with his wife, girlfriends and four kids and goes to work every day. Not really your conventional set-up, but it's his 'norm'.
And regardless of any 'hate' he may receive, Candyman believes that bringing up his children in a polyamorous setting is 'no different' than a gay couple bringing up kids.
He told LADbible last year: "They [his children] are like, 'Yep, that's our dad - he's always been like that, he's always been different.' What if I was in a same-sex marriage and they had to come home to two dads, or two mums?
"How do they cope with that? I can assure you that adults have been taught to be accepting of the world and the diversity but that's not the way it is in the school ground.
"The kids' friends at school think it's pretty cool that their dad has more than one girl. But explaining to one of your mates that a kid at the school has two dads or two mums - that can cause a lot of heat and a lot of hate at school still.
"The world has changed, people are hating on me - but if they're hating on me, are they saying they're against same sex marriage? Because I'm no different.
"I'm diverse, I'm different. I live a different lifestyle and I don't think it can be any more different than two males or two females bringing up a child."
And if you're in disagreement with him and wanted to throw a bit of hate his way, don't bother - he's just not arsed. In fact, he actually 'loves' it.
He added: "Hate has never bothered me, it only inspires me. I think times have changed from the beginning when I was first in the news. I think they've seen me stick around and think, 'This guy is actually authentic.'
"All the haters go, 'Oh, he's a party animal,' and they've stuck around and gone, 'He has a business, he's working his way up, and he's a good father with good kids, so maybe he's ok.'"
So, it's safe to say that judging by his annual millionaire mansion parties, Travers definitely comes through with the wildest ideas, goes the extra mile... and certainly won't be stopping anytime soon.
