The latest fad on the island is turtle racing, and Mr. Howell (Jim Backus) is the luckiest castaway at the track. Even when Howell feels sorry for the perennially-losing Skipper (Alan Hale Jr.) and attempts to "fix" a race, the millionaire emerges the winner again. Ultimately, Mr. Howell wins all of the Skipper's prized possessions--including Gilligan (Bob Denver), who becomes the Howells' houseboy.
