So far, after fourteen bids, the item (pictured above) is sitting at $14.50 AUD. Coupled with the slightly off-putting image of the crumpled up (and, we're assuming, slightly rancid) towel is this description:
"After his run, Zayn used this towel, which he brought down from his room, to wipe down his body, before leaving it in the change room on his way out. I managed to grab the towel and put it in a plastic bag, as seen in the photo above. This is a genuine, definitive piece of One Direction material. A once in a lifetime opportunity to own something that has been so personally used by a member of One Direction."
We can't help feeling InterCon Sydney is getting the short end of the stick here, since the creepy towel-swiping act itself was done by the individual cleaner and not the hotel. Of course, that's what you get when you let a teen idol into your hotel (Justin Bieber, we're looking at you, buddy). It's never a pretty scene.
Meanwhile, Oprah, who stayed here in 2010, kept things simple with a quick wave from the balcony and that was that. And later in Melbourne, we even discovered she too shares our love of quality hotel bathrooms. Now there's a model celebrity hotel guest!
