  • Deidre Downs (born July 7, 1980) is an American physician and former beauty pageant titleholder. Downs was Miss America 2005 and Miss Alabama 2004. Downs initially attended the University of Virginia on a volleyball scholarship. She later attended Samford University and earned scholarship money through pageants, graduating magna cum laude with a degree in history. She was an Echols Scholar at the University of Virginia and a member of the Jefferson Literary and Debating Society. She was also a finalist for the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship in 2002. After her term as Miss America, she began medical school at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham. She received her MD degree in 2010 and then completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at UAB Medical Center in 2014. She is currently a senior fellow in the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at UAB. She changed her name to Deidre Gunn after her marriage to Andrew Gunn in 2008, though they are now divorced. Downs is the only titleholder to reign for part of three calendar years. The pageant, traditionally held in September, was delayed four months to allow the Miss America Organization to secure a TV deal. Her successor, Jennifer Berry of Oklahoma, was crowned as Miss America 2006 on January 21, 2006. (en)
  • Come parte del suo anno di "servizio" in qualità di Miss America, la Downs è stata testimonial per la campagna di raccolta fondi per la cura del cancro infantile. La Downs è stata la vincitrice del titolo che ha avuto il regno più lungo, ad eccezione di Mary Katherine Campbell, che mantenne il titolo per tutto il 1922 ed il 1923, per via del cambio della programmazione dell'evento che slittò da settembre a gennaio. Il regno di Deidre Downs durò 490 giorni, sino al 21 gennaio 2006, anno in cui fu incoronata Jennifer Berry Miss America 2006. Deidre Downs ha frequentato la Pelham High School a Pelham, un sobborgo di Birmingham. Ha frequentato l'Università della Virginia (dove è stata membro della sorority Alpha Chi Omega), diventando emmbro della prestigiosa Jefferson Literary and Debating Society, prima di trasferirsi alla Samford University, dove si è laureata magna cum laude. Nel 2010 ha ottenuto la laurea di Medicinae Doctor presso l'Università dell'Alabama. Attualmente ha lavorato come tirocinante presso il reparto Ostetricia e Ginecologia presso il Birmingham Medical Center. (it)
