The USA Mullet Championships 2022 have been taking the internet by storm lately, with the kids’ division causing a particular stir, and now the ultimate kids' champion has been crowned. 

With the contest seeing a whole host of magnificent mullets on display, fans have been backing their favourites over the past couple of weeks. There were 25 kids in the final shortlist for the prize, with their cuts all offering the kind of “business at the front, party at the back” excellence you would hope to see. And some of the contestants had some truly awesome names too, such as Landry, Catchyn, Ridge, Bowden, Rustin, Zander, Cash, and Epic.

Well, it turns out that none of those competitors took out the prize. Rather, it went to an eight-year-old called Emmitt Bailey from Menomonie, Wisconsin.

Emmitt picked up 9,896 votes, beating the epically-named Epic, who came second with 8,404 votes. In third place was William, with just over 4,000 votes. Emmitt had previously said that he’d spend the prize money on a go kart.

Commenters on social media had mixed opinions on the results. One person wrote: “Yayayay hopefully he gets the go cart he wanted 🙌❤️.” 

Others said: “Congrats emmitt!” and “Rock ON!🏆🤘🏼🤘🏼”

Somebody else though, wasn’t so impressed, saying: “Epic got robbed.”

Another person wrote: “This needs to turn international! Us Aussies will give you Americans a run for your money!”

The teen division winner has also been announced, with Cayden Kershaw picking up the prize.

The USA Mullet Championships are raising money for charity, with proceeds going to Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Centre and Salon, which provides wigs and support services at no charge to children and young adults who experience hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, burns and other disorders.

There is also a Femullet contest, and Mane event.
