millionaire wins Real Gilligan’s Island, which returns next summer with a new cast.
The fifth and final episode of TBS’ The Real Gilligan’s Island aired last week, concluding the series’ insanely fast run as one of the millionaires took home the $250,000 prize. A press release says that “Stearns matched the prize money on behalf of his 26 Stearns companies and donated it to the Stearns Family Charitable Foundation, which he founded with his wife, Mindy, who finished second in the competition.” It does not say what he’ll do with his new Ford Mustang GT. The release also reveals that the show is returning for a second season next summer.
