Merced, California, United States

Her first pageant experience came in 1973 when she won the Miss Heineken title.
Summer Bartholomew then won the Miss California USA title in 1975 and went on to win the Miss USA crown. She competed at the 1975 Miss Universe pageant held in El Salvador and placed second-runner up to winner Anne Marie Pohtamo of Finland. Bartholomew also served as a judge for the Miss USA pageant in 1977 and 1982.
She is also known for her career on game shows. She became the hostess of the game show Sale of the Century in late 1984 after a brief period of trying out for hostess/letter turner on Wheel of Fortune in 1982 (although she substituted briefly in 1979 for then-hostess Susan Stafford), which she ultimately lost to Vanna White. She also appeared in the film Love Is Forever, with Michael Landon and Priscilla Presley. Like Jim Perry, Summer has kept a low profile since Sale of the Century went off the air in 1989.
