Tommy Lynn Calhoun was Miss Arizona USA 2017


2nd runner-up 2016, Top 20 Miss California USA 2014, Top 20 Miss CA USA 2013, Top 20 Miss CA USA 2011


A native of California who was a resident of Tucson during her reign, Tommy Lynn Calhoun was crowned Miss Arizona USA on 30 October 2016 and represented Arizona at the Miss USA 2017 pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tommy Lynn was the first Tucson resident to win in 20 years.

2017 bio:

Tommy Lynn was born and raised in Paso Robles, California and grew up without a stable home environment. She spent her childhood bouncing around from home to home until, at the age of fifteen, she met Holly Dunkel, a local paramedic supervisor, while volunteering in an emergency medicine program. Dunkel and Calhoun formed a bond and later she, along with Dunkel’s husband John Dunkel, became her adopted parents. This life changing meeting helped set Calhoun on a path of accountability and provided her with a support system which she attributes to helping her succeed in life and meet her goals. Her message to young girls is “You don’t have to be a product of your environment. You can be greater than your circumstances.”
Calhoun relocated to Tucson, Arizona three years ago to be closer to her boyfriend, Jake Fisher, a former linebacker for the Arizona Wildcats. She is the first titleholder from Tucson in 20 years.
