hahaha... saying bear is 5 ft 5 is so ridiculous.... It's easy to see that he is at the beginning of the tall zone

If he says 6ft he is 6ft your all idiots. Always downgrading height. CHRIS D no way on hell he is 5ft 5.

Has the face of a 5'8 man, but somehow seems to be a lot taller than that.

@MCS mbe,

I've seen pictures from the event. Apart from the poor angles, the prince has a very clear footwear advantage with heeled shoes versus Bear's very flat Adidas. I've argued a shorter listing for this guy, but you honestly can't tell much from pictures from that particular event, at least the one's I've seen.

@Nenninn I doubt it, more like someone pretending to be him.

Here's Bear with Prince William in the Daily Mail today, Wills is 6'3" Bear is more than 3" shorter!
Chris d said on 24/Aug/15
Just seen him next to Miranda; she's 6'1.. No way he's anything above 5'5!!
MD said on 11/Jun/15
Not sure why all of my pictures were pruned. Anyway, with 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon - who has a footwear advantage, but not ridiculously so:

With a 6'1.25" Prince Harry in which neither is standing at full height:

No, he is not a single centimeter more than currently listed and likely less.

watch the his show which has channng tatum for reference there literally the same height, either channing needs to go down or he needs to go up.
Tymmo said on 7/May/15
I'd say he is more around 179-180cm (5ft10.5 - 5ft11)

@Sonik you're probably 5ft10 and he's 5ft11 lmao

Hey, is that really Bear Grylls commenting xD. awesome
Shivam said on 1/Feb/15
I really appreciate Bear for the great courage and extreme knowledge about different situations , he has.
I am 5.9' nd feel he is almost 6.0 feet.
Chris said on 3/Oct/14
I went to a big public event where Bear was there. He was about 2 inches shorter than David Cameron (6 foot). Possibly more. Kate Middleton (5'8) was also taller than him - but she was in heels. I'd seriously say he's around 5'9 or 5'10. Certainly no more.
Chris said on 3/Oct/14
Bear is shorter than he looks. He's like me in build - long limbs, broad, thin. People assume I'm taller than I am as well.
Brett said on 11/Aug/14
Rob, long time... I just watched him with Channing Tatum in some special celebrity man vs wild episode...he's probably 2-3 inches shorter than Tatum whoes meant to be 6'1"...I think his probably a new aged Schwarzenegger :)

Hi insnt more than 6 feet, because i m tall 6'2 and i've seen him.
P. S. Im 16 years old
cole said on 11/Dec/13
Could be anywhere in the 180-182 cm range.
Jack said on 25/May/13
He always gives the impression of quite a tall guy, his spectacular build might help him in this department
Tinku said on 21/May/13
I think he is 5'11
Subarugirl1971 said on 29/Jan/13
Have met I'm on numerous occasions. I'm 5'10 and a half and he is taller than me.
anu said on 6/Oct/12

Bear said on 21/Aug/12
I used to be six foot until I broke my back!

Stella said on 5/Jan/12
Who cares how tall or short he is .I'm an armchair adventurer days, and I enjoyed every Minuit of this programme. I thought he was very supportive for Miranda and Jonathan Ross, and he looked as though he was enjoying himself in the process. I loved it. Let's have more Bear.
Stigofsussex said on 26/Dec/11
Look at him vs Miranda Hart on the new documentary. She's 6'1" and at least 3 inches taller than him. 5'10" max. Size not important tho, Bear still a hero.
nomie said on 26/Dec/11
am watching bear with miranda hart on weekend with. had too google it, as miranda drawves bear. could not beleive he is supposed to be 6', and she only 6'1'', there gotta be 5 inches between them at least
melb said on 26/Dec/11
Not a chance he's anywhere near 6ft. Have just seen the Ch4 special with Bear and Miranda Hart (comedienne) in the Swiss alps. She's 6ft 1" and she looks AT LEAST 5/6 inches taller than him !!
alan said on 24/Nov/11
5,10.5 - 6
Wolf said on 9/Nov/11
Legend! In one of his show (Man vs.Wild) he said he is about 180cm, so 183cm can be.
MD said on 15/Sep/11
Bear was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, and Jimmy had a little over an inch on Bear. Jimmy had on dress shoes and Bear tennis shoes, so either Jimmy should be upgraded back to 6'0" or Bear should have just a bit shaved off.
adz said on 5/Aug/11
Looked 6ft against Jonathon Ross on his chat show a couple years ago.
SAK said on 21/Jul/11
The pics posted by MD have changed my mind, I don't think Grylls is 6ft. He is looks 5ft9/5ft10 next to Harry(6ft1.5/187cm). However I see he is slouching, but still I would peg him at 5ft1(180cm) , maybe he was 6ft0 before his tragic accident that gloat him some height.
perdy said on 21/Jun/11
you guys are nuts he looks small next to harry in the pics posted by MD!! If he was 6ft or 5'11 he would look closer to harry in height. he looks to me slightly more than 5'9
Conor said on 13/Jun/11
I'm actually shocked, I remember Bear saying he was 6,6 in an episode of Born Survivor! You are all saying he's really tall and stuff at 5,11? I'm 16 and stand at around 5,11 or 6 foot. Looking down on BEAR GRYLLS..COOL!
jake said on 7/Jun/11
Maybe a strong 5' 11", 181 cm is my guess.
Zach H said on 15/May/11
I always thought he was more 5 ft 11 in or so.....but i may be wrong
Anonymous said on 29/Mar/11
More like 5'11 tops.
MD said on 11/Feb/11
Bear with 6'2"ish Prince Harry:

Obviously, not the best pictures because Bear is slouching in both, but 6'0" is the absolute top of the scale, here.

he's tall. looks a legit strong 6 ft (183cm) to me
Hassan Ullah Shah said on 24/Jan/11
he is an excellent man with very strong wil power keep it up
Ian Williams said on 23/Nov/10
I have meant him he is about 5ft 8 inches tall, light but reasonable strong build.In real life he is un assuming , friendly and very focused when he wants to be. In Australia Grant of Sunrise channel 7 is his closest match
TheVerve said on 30/Oct/10
He looks like a classic 5ft11 - 6ft guy to me, just like my dad.
