Today on “Stump the Chumps”, Terri asked, “On the TV show “Gilligan’s Island” what was the Skipper’s given name?

This is a great question and one that you WILL hear or see again. None of us should get caught on this one again. The answer? Jonas Grumby. Here’s the wikipedia link.

Also, as a bonus: Mary Ann or Ginger? I have always been on Team Mary Ann. According to the wikipedia page about “Gilligan’s Island”, Dawn Wells (Mary Ann) got a lot more fan mail than Tina Louise (Ginger).

Thankfully, somebody with too much time on their hands has provided us with a video tribute to Mary Ann. Well done, internet.
