A North Texas boy was recently crowned as the mullet champion of the USA.

Eight-year-old Jaxson "Hot Rod" Crossland of Celeste (Hunt county) took home the crown and the $500 prize as the winner in the 2020 Kids Mullet Championship contest with his epic "Curly Mullet" hairstyle.

After over 20,000 votes and over 50,000+ reactions on social media, Jaxson was declared the winner.

The team at MulletChamp.com determined the winner on October 27th after authenticating all of the votes to confirm there was no cheating or hacking of the system in place.

"I can't give autographs right now, 'cause I don't know cursive" said Jaxson after learning of his victory.

The Michigan based contest went viral in September with kids all over the country sending in pictures and showing off their mullets.

“The contest has blown up with over 20,000 votes from all over the country! It has been truly amazing to see these kids get all the spotlight," said USA Mullet Championship President Kevin Begola. "During these tough times it’s important to have fun. This is exactly what 2020 needed!”
