On Sunday, the Olympic diver hosted the Closing Gala for the Melbourne Cabaret Festival. Matthew Mitcham not only hosted the show but also auctioned off a pair of his Funky Trunks underwear. The pair ultimately went for a $1,000, which is a pretty steep price for someone’s used skivvies. However, Mitcham sweetened the deal by including a signed copy of his autobiography.
Mitcham lived up to his hosting duties by opening the show with a stripped down version of Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” that involved him literally stripping down to his undies. Boy, this man really hates being covered up. Sadly video of the performance has not surfaced on the internet.
