If those "then/now" pics are anything close to accurate, I could still fap to Mary Ann.

Poor Ginger has turned into a Halloween decoration.

Of course it's Mrs. Howell. She's loaded and the spectre of Death looms so close he flushes the shiatter for her. Once she's in the ground you Dustbuster your junk, crack open the vault and make that Reverse Suspension Bridge happen with (era-appropriate) Emma Peel and Julie Newmar Catwoman.

Mary Ann wins. Easily.

Ginger was hot, but who wants to put up with her sh*t for more than a week?

Mary-Ann. Damn, I thought this was obvious. Not only did she have those soulful eyes, but she could probably rebuild a carb from '72 Norton Commando.

Mrs Howell was much older than she let on, and still hittable.

No, it's the Professor who kept farking up. The guy could build a working radio out of a coconut, but couldn't fix the damn boat? Granted, he had a reason; the Skipper had Gilligan, and Thurston had Lovey Howell. That left the hottie movie star and the farm girl in hot pants for Prof. Hinkley. I wouldn't want to leave the island either.

Exponentially. Annie's level is definitely over 9,000. And I'm a sucker for pretty brunettes. Although Britta's not too shabby herself.

I'd rather put them in my new invention, the Tranmeldgrafier, and smoosh them into one glorious new person with all the best features of both women. I'd call her Ginger Ann. She would help me get off on the island.

CSB moment: My brother and I met her back in '72 or '73, when our family was on vacation in Indian Rocks Beach, FL. She was performing in the stage version of The Owl and the Pussycat in Tampa, and her motel was next to where we were staying. Needless to say, whoever was footing the bill for her lodging spared every expense; it wasn't exactly the Four Seasons(anyone who has ever been to IRB, especially back then, can attest to the fact that luxury wasn't exactly the norm). Anyway, she was very gracious and posed for a picture with my brother. And yes, she was H-O-T.
End of CSB moment.

I'd take Amy Farrah Fowler over Ginger.

I've known a few Gingers in my time. One of my oldest friends is a Ginger. I love her dearly, but she is so high maintenance, it isn't funny.
 
2012-10-20 04:20:21 PM  
For my generation this choice had been replaced by Jennifer or Bailey. I'm a Bailey man.
 
2012-10-20 05:12:53 PM  
The episode where Mary Ann thought she was Ginger, and wants to rehearse a love scene with Gilligan. My favorite Gilligan's Island scene ever. I don't know why the uploader added those ridiculous stars, but you can still get the idea. Even as a seven or eight year old, watching reruns after school back in the early 70's, I couldn't understand why Gilligan ran away. I bet Bob Denver really hated making that episode. She was hotter than sunburn.

As a girl who grew up watching the reruns I always thought Mary Ann would be the better choice for a friend. Ginger seemed so shallow and high maintenance and would want you around to be the plain girl to make herself look better. Whereas Mary Ann would really BE your friend because she was a nice person.

Insofar as the Samantha/Jennie question I can't see a guy being able to choose between the two, they were equally beautiful and built.

I always wanted Samantha and Lucy to be my Mom and John Wayne and Jerry Lewis to be my Dad. Yeah I know that doesn't make sense, and I'm sure that psychologically that is telling somehow, but hey I'm strange.

Self analysis: I want strong parents that will protect me and are a silly/goofy barrel of fun to be around?!? What say you Farkers with their GED in Human Psychology?
