Amazing that despite multiple subsequent roles in many stage and screen vehicles, it is as Mary Ann that she will be remembered. Gilligan's Island touched America deeply.

Oh no! I don't make a big deal about every celebrity death, but all those related to Gilligan's Island are worthy of a tribute.



I've always found it funny how when you ask any man, Ginger or Mary Ann, almost always the answer is Mary Ann. I can't think of a single exception.

Always the ideal long-term woman and a native of Reno to boot. RIP Mary Ann, Dawn.

That's probably because she is more attractive.

I think Ginger has the higher eye-candy factor, but it's close. I think every man seems to choose Mary Ann is she seems more approachable and down to earth.

I didn't know that she was Miss Nevada. I just read that.

Take a look at this pic and I think it is clear whos more attractive.

When I was watching GI I was fairly young and I certainly wouldn't have been thinking about who was more approachable or down to earth.

Has anyone ever answered your question with, neither, and said the professor?

Ginger looks fake. Mary Ann looks real. That is the difference.

Ginger comes off as the kind that will just leave you for someone better looking that makes more money at the first chance.
