Miss Castaway
13 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Beauty Is as Beauty Does" is the episode where the girls all compete in a beauty contest to elect 'Miss Castaway,' Skipper championing Ginger, the Professor all in for Mary Ann, and Mr. Howell naturally voting for Mrs. Howell. Guess who's left to be final judge? Any lulls are made up for by the time the pageant begins, each of the men conspiring to sabotage the other candidates, Gilligan scribbling notes to himself throughout. The outcome isn't really a surprise, but thus remains one of the best remembered episodes, Tina Louise a knockout in her leopard skin bathing suit, Dawn Wells losing hers as Gilligan reels her in ("must have been a her!"), and Natalie Schafer no slouch either in pure talent. The most surprising aspect is how out of character the Professor is, having never shown any interest in Mary Ann's physical attributes, having previously romanced Ginger (somewhat) in "Little Man on a Big Stick."
