USA MULLET CHAMPIONSHIPS CROWNS WISCONSIN KID & TEEN FOR HAVING MOST MAJESTIC MULLETS IN AMERICA IN 2022
Kid, teen winners earn $5,000 in prizes, some contest proceeds go to nonprofit that helps children, who are enduring hair loss
NEW YORK, August 22, 2022 – USA Mullet Championships has announced the winners of the 2022 Kid Mullet Championships and Teen Mullet Championships. Nearly 700 competitors from around the nation entered the competitions for children (ages 1 to 12) and teens (ages 13 to 18). After three rounds of voting and judging, featuring online public polling and a mullet celebrity judging panel, the winners are Emmitt Bailey of Menomonie, WI for the Kids Mullet Division and Cayden Kershaw of Wausau, WI for the Teens Mullet Division.
USA Mullet Championships, the nation’s official mullet-ranking authority, has established a powerful brand within the mullet space, conducting an annual mullet championship across multiple categories, including adult male, adult female (femullet), teen and kid divisions. In 2022, Major League Eating, the sanctioning body for the Nathan’s July 4 Hot Dog Eating Contest on Coney Island, began assisting the USA Mullet Championships with promoting its Mane Events.
USA Mullet Championships’ contests are the premier way for members of the public to vote for their favorite business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back hairstyles. This year, the teen and kid division contests attracted rabid interest, tallying a combined total of nearly 66,000 votes. Round one voting occurred on the USA Mullet Championships Facebook page. First round voting narrowed a total of 689 U.S. entrants to 100. A celebrity judging panel further culled the competitors to 25 majestic mullets for the teen division and 25 contestants for the kids’ division.
The celebrity panel included Ashley “Mother Mullet” Medina, a viral TikTok mullet stylist based in Lansing, Michigan, 2021 USA Mullet Championships men’s winner Clint Duncan of Knoxville and “Big” Scott Collard, the so-called “Godfather of the Mullet.” Following the judges’ selections, a final round of public voting occurred on the USA Mullet Championships’ website. This year’s first- through third-place kid and teen division winners are:
USA Mullet Championships’ Kid Division results
- Emmitt “Mullet Boy” Bailey, 8, Menomonie, WI (9,896 votes, mullet name “Mullet Boy”)
- Epic Orta, 8, La Joya, TX (8,404 votes, mullet name “George”)

Emmitt and Cayden each won a pair of Pit Viper Sunglasses and USA Mullet Championships gear, plus Emmitt took home $2,500 and Cayden earned $1,000. Runners-up received token prizes. USA Mullet Championships donated a portion of each entry fee to Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center of Michigan, a grassroots nonprofit that provides free wigs and support services to children and young adults experiencing hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, trichotillomania, burns and other disorders. This year’s kid and teen contests raised $3,500 for the nonprofit.
“USA Mullet Championships congratulates Emmitt and Cayden on their superior mullets,” said Kevin Begola, the USA Mullet Championships founder and president. “Their mullets are officially the best in the nation, and they stand as a beacon for all those seeking to attain the mullet lifestyle.”
About USA Mullet Championships
USA Mullet Championships began with an adult competition, dubbed the Michigan Mudflap Contest, for competitors ages 18 and older in 2020. The contest was first conceived as a marketing stunt for Bridge Street Exchange, a Fenton, Michigan men’s shop near Flint, Michigan, owned by Kevin Begola, founder and president of the USA Mullet Championships. After success with the adult contest in Michigan, the contest expanded to become a national event with adult, teen and kid divisions.
