Despite local love for his lip garnish, North Dakota Sen.-elect John Hoeven didn’t crack the top five in a popularity vote to crown the “Mustached American of the Year.”

Hoeven was among 19 finalists – including Twins pitcher Carl Pavano and TV/radio personality Pat O’Brien – for the American Mustache Institute’s Robert Goulet Memorial award. Flavor-saver fans had been voting online since mid-October to decide who would win the honor.

Florida firefighter Brian Sheets took home the third-annual award, according to an announcement Sunday from AMI.
