According to www.moldpedia.com, they offer a little more insight.

Causes - Why and How Mold Grows in the Bathroom

It's very common for mold to be found in bathrooms. One obvious reason why is that there's lots of water and humidity in the bathroom. Frequently running water in the bathroom basin, the bathtub and the shower creates wet surfaces and puddles of water. If you don't dry this moisture out quickly it can easily lead to mold growth. On top of this, when the water in the bathroom does dry out it evaporates into the air and increases the humidity. Steam from the shower or a hot bath also makes the bathroom more humid. Since bathrooms are often not well ventilated the humidity tends to hang around and wet surfaces take a long time to dry out.
