She must not have been the sharpest tack in the box or would have known who to use those feminine wiles on . The youngest and arguably (barely) best looking female was stranded on an island with Mr. Howell (a millionaire) for nearly 15 years, and she's broke?
(Show ran for 3 seasons but it was another 11 years before the sequel came out where they got rescued)


trivia:
The pilot, including the opening scene where they are initially leaving the harbor for their '3 hour tour' was filmed in Hawaii.
Look close when they reach the point and you can see the US Flag is at half mast. That part of the pilot was filmed within days after JFK was assassinated.

Also, Ginger and the Professor were played by different actors in the pilot. In the original there was no Mary Ann, there was Bunny, who was also not played by Dawn Wells.

The professor, with nothing more than a coconut shell and a few leaves and vines could build anything but a radio and fix anything except a 2' hole in a boat...
