Travers Beynon, a.k.a the Candyman, is an Australian businessman and playboy, who gained fame thanks to his luxurious lifestyle. Despite being married, he is always surrounded by girlfriends and has posted pictures and videos of himself enjoying all the luxury he can get.
Travers Beynon was born on the 6th March 1972 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, the son of Trevor Benynon and his wife Sandra. His parents are the founders of the tobacco business, Free Choice Tobacco company, which is the most successful such business in Australia. There is no information about whether he has siblings or if he is a single child. To speak of his education, Travers went to Clairvaux College of South Brisbane, where he played Australian Rules Football. Following his matriculation, Travers continued with his football career and played for the Southport Sharks Football Club on the Gold Coast.
After a few years at Southport, he was drafted by the North Melbourne Kangaroos for the 1989 pre-season, however, he injured his back and wasn’t able to play the entire season. After this, he was sent to the Brisbane Lions, however, instead of continuing to play football, Travers decided to retire, mostly due to his injury and inability to regain 100% fitness.
So Travers then launched a modeling career, which took him on a trip around the world. Thanks to his great looks, he struck deals with some of the most popular fashion brands, including Calvin Klein, Levi’s, Paul Smith, Valentino, and many others. He became extremely popular in the ‘80s thanks to his successful modeling career.
His nickname comes from his lavish lifestyle; he is the heir to the tobacco company his parents started, and now serves as the managing director of the company which grosses more than $250 million a year.
Travers started throwing parties at his own mansion, known as Candy Mansion, and has built a reputation all over the world, and as some people have idolized him, some have hated him for his lifestyle. He has often shared pictures of cash and women in most awkward situations, nevertheless, Travers continues to amaze the public with his endeavors, both personal and professional, and is now one of the most successful businessmen and playboys – he is now known as Australia’s Hugh Hefner.
Travers has flaunted his personal life, and this is what made him famous. He was married to former Miss Venezuela and Miss World winner, Ninibeth Beatriz Jiménez Leal, from 1991 until they divorced in 2008 – they have two children. Since then, Travers has remarried, to Taesha Beynon, with whom he also has two children. His current wife has accepted his way of life and often joins him with other women. One of his children, the daughter Lucciana Beynon, is now a model, and already has around 100 thousand followers on her official Instagram page.
