Tina Louise

Celebrity / Calendar Girl



Tina was a genuinely glamorous, strikingly beautiful
model, singer & actress who became best known for
portraying a campy caricature of herself as "Ginger"
on "Gilligan's Island". Not her favorite turn of events.

But she was the real thing, and caught Playboy's eye
long before that fateful "3-hour tour".

Tina holds the distinction of being one of the very few
"Playmates without a Centerfold". She is officially
"Miss November" in the 1962 Playmate Calendar, even
though she was never a Playmate in the magazine.

Still, Tina did receive more attention from Playboy than
most early Playmates, with at least five appearances
that preceded her "island" gig. She was even more
"nude" than a certain few of the actual Playmates!
◀The photo at left is from the most revealing of her
photo sets for Playboy. Another picture from this set
was published in the December 1962 issue.

Are you wondering about the date on that calendar? ▷
Tina was indeed "Miss November" in the official 1962
Playmate Calendar, not 1963 as you see there at right.
Each year, as Playboy introduced a new calendar, the
previous year's calendar would be made available for
companies like Johnson to buy as promotional items.
