BTW, I seem to recall Cat Deeley saying back in the early 2000s that she used to briefly be a model in the earliest part of her career.

@ lollipop below - I think Cat Deeley meant that she stands at 6'0" minimum when she puts on your average pair of high heels (heels which are usually anywhere from 3"-to-5"). Never forgot the time she was backstage with Bono from U2 at one of their concerts, and Bono was like R2D2 next to her, lol.

i think she is pretty. Watching her on sytycd she is much taller. If the avg male really was 5.9/10 it wouldnt be too much of a big deal. Maybe the dancers really r just on the short side - plus, it makes sense that they r shorter cause to dance well u gotta be strong and short to defy gravity and promote lightning fast movements. You cant shrink so that others may shine. Big heels are a thing of the day - even hollywood recognises that - by far most women in hollywood are as tall as or taller than their male counterparts - its somehow becoming normal... Thaks to them big heels. Its fashion.

Cinnie. U say "please fire her stylist". Then U have to fire Cat. Because she styles herself almost every show. She has said a couple of time "what was I thinking". But just a couple of time.
Everyone has different taste. And I like Cat's dresses 95% of time

@Jan overman: BS, to both your points. Tall women exaggerate their height too, just like men and shorter women do. And she is definitely not over 5'9" either.

At 0:12 - 0:25 she is next to Jimmy Kimmle and CLEARLY shorter than him in her 4 inch heels.
Can't find the Clip but Cat Deeley CLEARLY is TALLER than Jimmy Fallon when on his show 6/7/2012. She has a tricky height
said on 14/Sep/12
Rob what size heels do you think cat is talking about? 3inch heels wouldn't give a 3 inch height increase so do you reckon she was talking about wearing 4inchers?
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure, maybe she's just being specific about saying 6 foot although in some heels she's worn she's going to measure near 6ft 1.]

I wish I had Cat's height, it's really a blessing! BUT along with other comments, when you see her towering over the dancers it really takes the light off them & onto the "extremely tall" host - she can show her amazing height anytime but I agree that she needs to tone down the heels on the show so the dancers can be the focal point. Plus I hate to say but she's such a beautiful girl PLEASE fire her SYTYCD stylist!!! She has worn some of the most unflattering outfits I've ever seen!!! Cat your great but please - shorter heels & let the dancers have their rightful spotlight on the show. 😁
That tall girl said on 8/Sep/12
I can't believe some of the horrible comments on here, she's glamorous and an amazing host. A lot of professional dancers are actually quite short, and tall girls should be able to wear whichever shoes they like. I'm 6"2 and I love my 4 inch heels - anyone jealous of my 8 feet of leg can go jump

JFP21 you are dead LUCKY! Those who put down TALL women are just JEALOUS-if theres one thin you cant change its HEIGHT. As for the MEN who claim that TALL women are a TURN-OFF,all I can say is there are PLENTY of MEN who would give their RIGHT ARM to be surrounded by a LEGGY LOVELY. Im around 5'6 (I think) but I still dont put TALL women down
Dani said on 25/Dec/11
Jesus, people. 5'9'' isn't even THAT tall, you're allowed to be "whoah, you're so tallll" when a woman passes the 6'2'' mark. Like JFP21 said, if 5'9'' people aren't allowed to wear heels, then 5'2'' people shouldn't be allowed to wear flats, right? Plus, so what she towers over all of the dancers? Doesn't seem to bother her. She's absolutely gorgeous, plus a great host.
JFP21 said on 16/Dec/11
I'm 5ft 11 and wear heels all the time! What's peoples problem? Just because shes talk doesn't mean you can't wear heels gees!!! It's like saying short people can't wear flats!!!!
Ruby said on 9/Dec/11
I love the show and shouldnt say it , but...I cant handle it, she is like an Avatar!!! This isnt about her personality ,that she has in buckets. Its just so off putting seeing her nearley smother those dwarfs! Take off the shoes at least!
Josie said on 20/Nov/11
I agree with Carol comments on the height of Cat Deeley's Shoes on SYTYCD 27/07/11. I mentioned this to my family whilst watching the show, and I noticed she Giants above all the dancers, It is absolutely stupied, as she is so tall, she does not need to enhance her height with the ridiculous shoes she wears on the show. It has put me off the show so much, that I couldn't bare to watch her any more. I'm so glad that somebody else as noticed, I mean it is stupied she has to bend down so low to speak to the dancers.
silver said on 5/Nov/11
shes already tall, and wears heels too!
Jan overman said on 1/Oct/11
Cat Deeley is taller than 5'9!"
Women downplay their height.
Men exaggerate their height.
Pat Mahiney said on 28/Sep/11
Oh I just love Cat, sure she is unnaturally tall but she has a great personality
stoodnext2 said on 12/Aug/11
On the Teen Choice 8/7/11, she was the EXACT SAME height as LL Cool J, while wearing her 4-inch heels. I think she is a SOLID 5'9 Barefoot, Maybe even 5'10 out of bed.
Model Monique said on 5/Aug/11
I have self esteem issues? I don't think so. I think that I'm very beautiful and you are obviously just jealous that I get to be a model and you probably don't even have a job because your face is uglier than my big black rear end! Oh and yes she is 5'9''.
Bootney Lee Farnsworth said on 4/Aug/11
Anyone who says she has to be 5'9 because she was a model and she would know because she is one is a self absorbed female douchebag with self esteem issues. Cough cough model monique ahem caugh caugh.
Cyndi said on 28/Jul/11
I don't care for her personality, but I did wonder how tall she is. According to a reputable (certain) pedia article, she's 5' 9"
Bill said on 28/Jul/11
If she's 5-'9" then every dancer on So You Think You Can Dance is 5'-3" or less, including the guys. She's got to be at least 5'-11" then she wears the 5 or 6 inch heels. She's a foot taller than many of the dancers. I used to date a woman her size and that's my estimate.
a-pac said on 28/Jul/11
Is everybody on SYTYCD a midget? I'm 5'8" with a 5'9" girlfriend (possibly slightly taller), and I'm never dwarfed by her when she's in heels like most of the guys on the show are by Cat.
Carol said on 27/Jul/11
I think Cat Deely is a horrible pick for host of SYTYCD. She is so tall and completly towers over the short, petite dancers. It just makes her look like an Amazon. The differences in height is so distracting that is all I see when she is interviewing the dancers. It seems like someone in charge would notice this too and at least ask her to not wear those gigantic heels. It is the only thing that sticks out as being "off" on that show. It bugs me so much that I had to find a blog where I could comment about it. Thanks!
Model Monique said on 16/Jul/11
She is 5'9'' because she was a model and models have to be at least 5'9''.
I would know because I'm a Fashion and Runway Model and 5'10''.
abcdef said on 30/Jun/11
Cat is 5'8 - tops!
Tom said on 4/May/11
5'9" is about right, although her legs aren't as long as someone like Cilla Black who is a few inches shorter.
Pinoy said on 5/Apr/11
I think Cat Deeley is at least 5'7'' and at most 5'8''.
Renee said on 25/Mar/11
I'm 5'11" and love wearing 3 or 4 inch heels. I get very frustrated everytime I see a fellow tall woman slouching. Put those shoulders back and embrace your height.
Mia said on 11/Oct/07
Wow. I thought she was taller. She towered over practically everyone in SYTYCD.
asdfasdfasdf said on 8/Oct/07
Cat looks 6 feet to me!! and she's gorgeous from head to toe, i dunno y u guys r givin her crap bout bendy knees and crook nose. she's a spunk and a great tv presenter!
Joe said on 1/Oct/07
Actually Mel! Cat looks far from great. She is very odd looking from her nose, to her eyes, to her chop sticks (legs). She is quite tall though 5'8 on the dot. I met her in London at a charity event two yearsd ago and she is weird looking with no breast or hips either.
Mel said on 13/Sep/07
Shallow comments! Cat looks great and is not the usual 'plastic fantastic'! Sorry but Americans don't have the monopoly on good looking people. I've been there, so I should be able to judge. Visit Australia...and see people who are attractive, both inside and out!
Miky said on 7/Sep/07
Who cares??? She is one of the ugliest and dumbest people on TV..e.xcept maybe Paris. Cool site though Ed. Rob
milady Jeyka said on 31/Aug/07
no it's impossible.. some of the guys were over 6 foot and she was still taller then all of them, I know she wore heels, but she can't only 5'9.. that's how tall I am
princess said on 16/Aug/07
i could of swornt hat Cat was way over 6foot but i was shocked to see that she was only 5,9. And then i was thinking about your heels. So i guess the dancers are just real short!
Jason said on 26/Jul/07
She looks between 5'8-5'9 and the reason why she towers is due to her very high heels which can easily boost her to 6'0. As far as her features/legs are concerned she is very odd looking. There are also quite a number of chat sites that complain about her useless presentation skills, and which also claim 5'8-5'9 range among other info.

Brad1: "This girl is funny looking, maybe it is the British thing. I mean her nose is crooked and has got these bendy/weird set of legs. Her height seems more like 5'8."
This is a little harsh don't you think?
Hmmm said on 12/Jul/07
Really? Just 5'9"? She towers over EVERY contestant on "So You Think You Can Dance" - even barefoot. I would've believed 6'1"! I swear, I was watching an episode last night where the judges were teasing her for it and Deeley said she was six foot. Then again, I was vacuuming at the same time. Anyway, I guess the dancers are in the five and a half feet range, because the height different is generally 3-4 inches.

She is a shade under 5'9

Sam said on 3/Apr/07
Haha...kind of funny what this UK person said on her. I read an article (can't remeber where) talking about the Brits coming to town, and she was mentioned. I like the Brits, anyhow...this Cat seems 5'7 1/2 not more.Mind you, can seem tall for girl...either way has good energy!! but sort of agree with the rest about not being a hot...she does have a weird nose and what is up with those bendy knees? Brits are not known for hotness though...but they are upbeat!!
CelebFan said on 24/Mar/07
Don't know about 5'9.exactly..though looking at "Think you can dance" seems tallish for a girl maybe betwee 5'7-5'8 and she wears high heels. Dig the accent, though not sexy..not enough curves.. like the other British import Keira. Ed. Rob this site rocks
UK said on 2/Mar/07
I think 5'8 is more like it. I saw her in London, where both of us are from and she seemed that height but not 5'9. As far as appearance is concerned she has an OK face. Cute overall but croocked nose, bendy/skinny knees (was wearing a skirt from Top Shop...UK fashion store) and quite bad skin. For some reason I doubt she will make it big in America...not enough talent.
