Notorious 'Candyman' releases list of bizarre instructions on how to become his next girlfriend
There's a lot to be said about Travers Beynon.
The 46-year-old millionaire and heir to the Free Choice tobacco empire has attained a fair amount of notoriety in recent months for his lavish parties and Playboy lifestyle, and recently caused a stir when it emerged that he was in a "committed" relationship with three different women.
As well as having a wife, Beynon - who is perhaps better known by the nickname, "Candyman" - also has two girlfriends.
"We're very happy," Beynon said when asked how his various partners deal with their polyamorous relationship. "I've been married to my wife for eight years and our relationship - in a fun sense, in a family sense, and in a sexual sense - is like we first met."
However, it seems that the Candyman is not content with the three partners he already has, and has since released a list of requirements for women to follow if they want to be another one of his girlfriends.
On his website, the candyshopmansion, women who are interested in visiting Beynon can go to a page titled, "Want to be the next girlfriend?"
At the top of the page, it says: "Each year we get hundreds of girls asking the question ‘How do I become a girlfriend’ of the Candyman." It then goes on:
"Being in a relationship with Travers Beynon aka The Candyman is just like any other relationship where there must be trust, loyalty and respect and it is vitally important that you get along with the other girlfriends in the house. You will naturally become accustomed to the finer things in life such as designer clothing and accessories, 5-star travel around the world, expensive cars and jewellery, fine dining and exclusive private parties.
"Not only must you be extremely attractive to be considered as a potential girlfriend, you must be fun, bubbly, out-going, spontaneous, adventurous and respectful."
But that's just the start of it.
"Travers has a wife and other girlfriends plus 4 children who currently live at the Candy Shop Mansion with him. It is a family home and the day to day routine is normal like any other Australian household. A typical day in the life of a girlfriend would include making Travers breakfast, seeing him off to work, relaxing by the pool, photoshoots, clothing fittings, greeting Travers when he arrives home from work or the gym, having family dinners and of course partying with The Candyman."
Then it starts to sound more like a job application:
"It is very important to maintain yourself personally which will all be taken care of by Travers. This will include keeping your nails and toenails manicured, your hair styled, maintain a tan and having makeup done to a high standard daily along with stylish clothing.
"Being an important businessman Travers is invited to large social events regularly which you will be expected to attend with him. It is important to remember on these occasions that you are representing Travers and his brands in public and an expectation on your behalf to uphold these values is important.
"The nightly sleeping arrangements consist of the master bedroom which has 3 king sized beds which Travers shares with the girlfriends every night."
And then there's a checklist of desirable traits...
"To be successful in being the “Candyman’s “ next girlfriend it is essential you display the following attributes
100 % CONFIDENTIAL
LOOKING FOR A GENUINE RELATIONSHIP
WILLING TO HELP OUT AROUND THE MANSION
HAPPY TO MOVE INTO THE MANSION FULL TIME
BEING IN ANY CURRENT RELATIONSHIP
RELATIONSHIPS WITH ANYONE ELSE WHIST [sic] LIVING AT THE MANSION"
But, hey, if you're a single woman who wouldn't mind sharing her partner with literally dozens of other girls and changing your lifestyle to suit the exact requirements of a controlling millionaire, why not hit up Travers Beynon? Remember, though, you're not allowed to be in a relationship with anyone else - just him.
