The ugly duckling becomes a beautiful swan

"All About Eva" offers Tina Louise the opportunity to play a completely different character from Ginger, as the neurotic and plain looking Eva Grubb, whose disappointment with men has driven her away from civilization to a deserted island to live alone for the rest of her days. She's quite willing to give the castaways the key to her boat, so long as they leave quickly and never come back, but the Professor advises that in her present state of mind it might not be wise for her to be alone, intending to send a boat back for her once they reach the mainland. Gilligan accidentally spills the beans about their plans, so Eva buries the spark plugs so that no one can leave the island. At this point Ginger suggests a complete makeover for Eva so that she'll want to return to civilization, but in creating a replica of herself unleashes a monster eager to make the moves on all men, even Gilligan. By the time of the going away party, Eva believes herself to be such an effective actress that she can sail away as Ginger and no one will ever suspect the truth. Tina is excellent as Eva, but as Ginger a little more soft spoken than usual.
