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



Nope. I've asked this question of women, but with the male characters, and they sometimes say, "I find none of the men attractive, I'd take Mary Ann." Of course, I go off on a big defense of the Professor, but it doesn't help.

The NYPost has an article entitled “Tina Louise (Ginger) reveals the TRUTH about Dawn Wells.” I was expecting something scandalous or surprising. When you open the article it says (paraphrasing) “Dawn was as wonderful and kind as you expected. She was a great person and a cherished friend.” I guess the clickbait got me but happy to read something positive and nice.

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



It is okay Axel, we are tolerant here. Just go ahead and say that Gilligan looks hot here, we won't think any less of you.

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.



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.




I call BS. She lived on the Island for years, alongside a billionaire with a spinster of a wife and never made a move on him.

I always was suspicious of Gilligan and the Skipper close relationship. I mean 15 years on an island?

And then they desired to simply return and continue their lifestyle?

And had a visit from the Harlem Globetrotters?

I've never heard a woman asked "Gilligan or the Skipper?"

Ms. Wells was in a classic horror movie- The Town that Dreaded Sundown. I was lucky enough to see it at a drive-thru in 1976/77 and again a few years later at the now legendary Uniondale Mini-Cinema. In the days before Halloween reinvented the horror genre, it was an outstanding film. I see they made a remake which is easily available but the original is well worth hunting down

I was saddened to hear about Dawn's death yesterday. I had the pleasure of meeting her back in 1983 or possibly 1984. At the time I was the manager of a small movie theatre on Hollywood Blvd. She and a couple of her girlfriends came in one day, to watch whatever movie we were showing at the time. I was able to chat with her for a few minutes after the show, before she left. As you might expect, she was an absolute doll.

I'm not too big on autographs, but I guess I asked her for hers since she gave it to me, which of course I still have. ("Ed, A special hello! - Dawn Wells") Like many people, I literally grew up watching reruns of Gilligan's Island.

Because she was four years younger than Louise, I always figured Dawn would eventually be the last surviving cast member of the show. Nope. Not anymore.

I also met Teri Garr and Gretchen Corbett at that same theatre. Hopefully they are both doing okay.

So, MaryAnn needs glasses.
