Huge congrats to Tomacina (Tomii) Culmer, 22, for taking the Miss Bahamas Universe crown! For the first time in the history of the Miss Bahamas Organization, a double header event took place to choose the nation’s ambassadors to the Miss World and Miss Universe pageants. The double-header event – under the theme “Beauty Personified” – is an historic moment for the Miss Bahamas pageant. According to MBO President Michelle Malcolm, this new system has already injected much excitement in Bahamian pageant circles.
Tomii Culmer will represent The Bahamas for Miss Universe 2014. Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler will crown her successor during the grand coronation night of 63rd Miss Universe beauty pageant competition.

Tomii Culmer aspires to become a role model for others; to be a successful model internationally; and she wants to pay her way through college majoring in Digital Photography to return and teach it in The Bahamas.
Her favorite things about her country : “The beautiful weather we have almost all year round; the fact that people pay money to visit this country and I have the privilege of living here. I am truly grateful especially when I watch what goes on in other countries. We are a blessed nation and we sometimes take it for granted. I love the fact that we have the best of both worlds in one country; in some cases on the same island. If you want to live a fast life or a relaxed laid back life there is an island to suit that need.” (Quotes from Universal Queen)
