On the mainland they had a butler, an upstairs maid, a downstairs maid, a cook, a gardener, a chauffeur, and other servants, even a butler for their butler. Because of this, Mr. Howell wasn't accustomed to physical labor, which often forced the other [[The Castaways|castaways]] to work harder while Mr. Howell sat in a lawn chair and watched. The [[Professor]] once said about him: "Mr. Howell always manages to disappear when there's work to be done." It was only rarely that Mr. Howell worked, although here the term "work" can be used loosely. Such rare occasions include when he helped tar a hut, which, of course, [[Gilligan]] ruined ([[Home Sweet Hut]]). Even on [[The Island|the island]], Mr. Howell was so desperate for a servant, partially for [[Mrs. Howell|his wife]], that he bet Gilligan's services with the Skipper in a turtle race so that he could become their houseboy in [[They're Off and Running]]. Mr. Howell is actually a billionaire and one of the world's richest men, inherited from his father. He met his wife "[[Mrs. Howell|Lovey]]" at Harvard and married her in 1944. He remembers it as the day Consolidated General jumped 17 points. Although they've been married twenty years, they both admit that the last five years haven't been much of a picnic. But still, Thurston can be remarkably sentimental and romantic with Lovey. Known as "the Wizard of Wall Street", he has been convicted six times on antitrust suits, and investigated every year for income tax evasion. Mr. Howell owns up to twelve corporations, and as chairman of the board, he has 5,000 employees and an office on the second floor. He confesses to holding meetings over drinks and games of pool, once becoming so inebriated that he sold Grand Central Station without even owning it. He also has interest in aviation, oil wells, the Thurston Howell Battery company and owns a movie studio. He is also apparently a member of at least two yacht clubs, the [[Newport Country Club]] and the [[Sunnybrook Yacht Club]], and the [[Union League Club]]. He prides himself as being a Harvard graduate and a registered Republican. He has homes in all fifty states, particularly in Palm Beach, Paris, Monaco, Newport, and New York City. Mr. Howell has 20 suitcases just for himself. He also displays little tact, blames the Skipper for the shipwreck, and is always trying to break the castaways' laws and bribe others. He is sneaky, untrustworthy, conniving, greedy and corrupt. Yet, when it comes to the lives of his fellow castaways, he's always exceptionally generous and caring, going so far as to make them all heirs and heiresses to his vast fortune and later partners in the Castaways Resort he later creates on the island. He refuses to do manual labor, preferring instead to hire Gilligan to work for him. He usually spends his day relaxing with his wife, Lovey, on the bamboo lounge chairs, sipping tropical drinks, and listening to the stock market report on the radio (which is his). He also enjoys playing golf with bamboo and seashell clubs and reading his only copy of the Wall Street Journal every day. He finds it comforting that the market never goes up or down.
