Burbank, CA, native Debbe Dunning was a cheerleader and homecoming queen before she broke into modeling following her high-school graduation in 1984. She appeared in several print ads for Miller Lite and made her commercial debut in a Foot Locker ad. Next up was a movie role in the straight-to-video Dangerous Curves (1988). She made the jump to television with a small role in HBO's Dream On in 1990, which she followed up with a string of guest starring spots before landing a full-time gig on Home Improvement in 1993. Dunning replaced Pamela Anderson as the new "Tool Time" girl, Heidi Keppert, who kicked off the sitcom's show-within-a-show. Cashing in on her popularity, she posed for a calendar in 1995 that went on to become a best-seller. On the home front, Dunning married volleyball player Steve Timmons in 1997 and the pair had two kids. By 2006, Dunning returned to the small screen as a series regular on the My Network TV prime-time soap Wicked Wicked Games. In 2008, Dunning signed on as the spokesperson for bioMETRX, Inc., a company that manufactures biometric products for the home.
