Agreed. And let's not forget Kotter's wife, either. Or Pam Dawber as Mindy. All from the same general mode.

Re: Ginger or Mary Ann?

Mary Ann. It's not just the fact that I find her adorable, it's also that Ginger's personality turns me way off. Mary Ann seems more like a confident, intelligent, funny, sweet person, one who is capable of taking care of herself, and I find that immensely appealing.

Mary Ann is undeniably hotter and sweeter, but I feel there's a lot to like about Ginger's personality once you look past the surface. True, she was initially written as a vapid Marilyn Monroe clone, and that's a type she later reverted to when recast for the animated series and reunion movies, but for most of the series, Tina Louise brought a great deal of intelligence, canniness, humor, and strength. She wasn't just a sex object to satisfy male fantasies; she was a shrewd and self-possessed woman who understood, embraced, and utilized her own libido for her own reasons and goals.

Yeah, there seems to be "something" to Ginger's character and, really, she wore the Minnow's tarps and sails well.

Now, not to malign Mary Ann who is beautiful in many ways and probably more attractive over all than Ginger but, the latter just has a certain... "smokiness" to her. One's the "girl-next-door" one is the fantasy girl.

I read sentences like this and I find myself utterly confused...until I remind myself that guys around here thought Cobie Smulders was hotter than Scarlett Johanssen in The Avengers and i realize trying to make sense out of these sentiments is pointless.


I'm sticking with Team Ginger. You guys do what you want.

Buffy Season 1 Cordelia or Angel Season 3 Cordelia? (Though almost always agreed either way).

While I admit that she had gotten much hotter by Season 3 of Angel, I will ALWAYS choose Willow over Cordy.

Yeah, the people who crowned Dawn Wells as Miss Nevada were probably all Forbidden Planet nuts.

"Attractive" doesn't have to be limited to physical beauty. Mary Ann had a better overall personality and demeanor than Ginger which bumps up her attractiveness.
