ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A local realtor has been crowned the “Robert Goulet Mustached American of the Year.”
Troy Rivas found out recently that the original winner had to step down. Stephen Brown won the title back in October, but he shaved his mustache which is a no-no. So Rivas, who was the runner-up, moved up to the top spot.
“You know it’s pretty cool, I enjoy it,” Rivas said. “I started growing it for my son’s baby shower and I just kept it going. It’s kind of who I am now as a realtor, people know me as the mustache realtor.”
Rivas is using his winning mustache to help local charities. He will be hosting a beard and mustache event in July to support the Albuquerque Storehouse.
