Bahamian top model, Tomicina 'Tomii' Culmer of Grand Bahama has been crowned Miss Universe Bahamas during the pageant finale held on August 3rd.  In 2013 Tomii won Season 2 of the Campari Caribbean Poster Girl Search 2013 which aired on Tempo, and she has been a busy model for many years, walking at Islands of the World Fashion Week, as well as Caribbean International Fashion Week. She has been seen in a variety of print ads.

Tomii says she is down to Earth “tomboy” of sorts, and studied Carpentry & Joinery in high school, and later went on to study Automotive Technology at BTVI. She enjoys playing flag football, sewing, and singing, and is the lead singer in the band, B12. In her free time, she is also a Brownies volunteer at the Freeport Primary School.

She wowed the public earlier in the pageant with her International Costume made by Javotte Bethel and also placed in the initial top 3 in the Evening Gown segment. She also won the Top Model Competition for the pageant.

"I just want to say how grateful and overwhelmed I am. I want to first thank God for ordering my steps throughout this journey," said Miss Culmer on Facebook. "My family & friends for supporting me and keeping my sane lol. Thanks to my district directors (Sharon Rolle & Deanna North) and my speech coach (Kerel Pinder) for not giving up on me. Everyone that has supported me from monet ary to even words of encouragement. I've been flooded with love over the past few days and I want everyone to know that I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. To my new family (MBO) let's take over and make this year an unforgettable one
