NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – Did you ever think that the 1980s mullet hairstyle would make a comeback so big that competitions would take place to see who had the best ones in America? Neither did we -- but lo and behold -- it’s happening and a teen in Nassau County has one of the best!

Fisher Monds, a 15-year-old from Hilliard, is a finalist in the “USA Mullet Champ Teen Division.” His long locks gained the votes of hundreds, and as of Friday morning -- the last day of voting -- Monds was in first place!

Monds is one of 11 contestants aiming for the title.

The results for the Kids and Teens winners will be announced Sunday morning on TODAY on NBC.

While Monds was waiting for the big news, he stopped by The Morning Show on Saturday to share some secrets to his lovely locks and his motivation for the special ‘do’:

The mullet is making a comeback! Fisher Monds is from right here in Northeast Florida and his lovely locks are in the running for the Best Mullet in the Teens Division. The winner will be announced on Sunday.

The first place prize is the “Mullet Mega Money Pot” of $2,500!

Monds said Saturday that he plans to use some of the money to get his truck running, but he’ll be saving the rest.
