How tall is Gordon Ramsay ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Gordon Ramsay's height is 6ft 1.3in (186 cm)

UK Celebrity Chef. He once said: "I was six foot, fast, strong, 19 years of age. So the last thing I expected was to be kicked out Rangers"...then in 2000 said "I'm 6ft 2ins, thick-set and rugged". He was measured using a Stadiometer (like the one I've got) by Erin O'Connor who called out 6ft 2.5 but the actual reading wasn't quite 6ft 1.5, it was just under that. It is unclear if he had shoes or not though for the measurement so he could be either 6ft 1.25 or under 6ft 1.

I just saw that video too.. same shoes, good posture on both of them. Probably the best evidence there is that he isn't a big 6'1 footer.. more like a strong 6'0 footer (6'0.75). Never really looked like a strong 6'1 guy to me anyway.

Maybe it's time for a downgrade?

He got an inch over 5'11 Kimmel
Dorian says on 16/Feb/15
6'1.5 max
miko says on 11/Jan/15
Big hair, a big frame and boots can help him look taller than he is.

6'1 range seems fair but he has looked shorter on more than 1 occasion.
Andrea says on 10/Jan/15
Joe is one of the judges in the italian version of Masterchef... That's why i asked that! Sam do you believe Gordon was measured barefoot or with shoes on? I mean, Rob sometimes tries to be as precise as possible, giving 1/4 inches and cannot say if there's more chance he was measured in shoes or not! We're talking about a big inch difference... I can't say anything because i've seen very few things of him but if Rob has him on the site, he must have seen some stuff, i hope!
Sam says on 30/Dec/14
I believe Joe is a solid six footer and Graham is 6'2", may be a fraction more. Sometimes Graham can look at least an inch over Ramsay, sometimes less. Contestants have noted they are all tall.
I like Masterchef, it's the one American Ramsay show that doesn't feel like Ramsay is just going through the raging motions and parodying himself. Kitchen Nightmares was far better in the UK version than in the now ended US version.
Andrea says on 29/Dec/14
Rob, how tall you think the bald guy is?

[Editor Rob: basing of Gordon somewhere in 6ft range, at times a bit above that mark he can appear.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 26/Dec/14
Can look a very strong 6ft1 when he stands tall. I think the 6ft2 is in shoes
Tempest says on 24/Dec/14
He's not calling Gordon Ramsay weak. He means that he believes Gordon is a little less than 6'1", or that he's someone who could pass as 6'1", but might not actually be the full 6'1".
Anynomus says on 14/Dec/14
How the hell is 6'1 weak lol says the dude thats 5'9...his mad lol im 5'11 n im taller then most people
mike says on 5/Oct/14
He can look anywhere between 6ft 1 and 2 so 185-187 range.
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in says on 3/Oct/14
I think he's a weak 6'1 guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Sep/14
I saw old footage of him and Marco Pierre White from the late 80s. If White is 6ft3 or close to it, Ramsey looks about this
Aaron183cm says on 21/Sep/14
He always looked like a proper 6'1" guy to me. All these 6'0" downgrades are laughable. He's always one of the tallest people on his shows.
trav says on 9/Sep/14
he 6'2
Arch Stanton says on 31/Aug/14
Ross Burden, always reminded me of Steven Seagal LOL!
Arch Stanton says on 31/Aug/14
That's an interesting comparison though. In looking Novelli does actually look tall range but he's shorter than quite a few in comparisons, I think he might be near 6 ft but I doubt 6 ft 2. He does look near it in that photo if you're sure the other guy is a solid 6'1!
Arch Stanton says on 31/Aug/14
[Editor Rob: I bumped into another chef last month, nick nairn who actually looked in the 6ft 1-1.5 range.]

Rob, do you think that at Jean Christophe Novelli could be near 6 ft 2? Click Here That surprised me I thought he was fairly average.
[Editor Rob: can look near enough that, or at least similar to nairn]
James B says on 21/Aug/14
Looks 6'0.5 here with ross
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in says on 3/Aug/14
I'm with Sam on this one that Ramsay looks 6'1 max most of the time. I suspect that the 6'1.5 and 6'2 measurements were in shoes
Sam says on 31/Jul/14
What height would be if he was measured there with a typical shoe? I think a flat 6'1" fits Ramsay best, if anything he can seem to be a bit under the 6'1" mark rather than over it much of the time.
[Editor Rob: if he was in a normal shoe he could very well be nearly an inch smaller and more in the 6ft 3/8ths range.]
grizz says on 25/Jul/14
Next to 182 cm Jimmy Kimmel, he doesn't seem much bigger. I give him 184-185 cm max.
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in says on 19/Jul/14
Rob, ive been watching him a lot on hells kitchen and kitchen nightmares lately. If you watch some of those videos you will see he definitely doesn't look any taller than 6'1 standing next to other people. I think that the just under 6ft 1.5 measurement was in shoes. I really would advise you check this one again.
Lenad is sexy says on 16/Jul/14
I estimate 184cm judging by how he looks on hells kitchen standing next to people. He can look just average height at times sometimes but that's due to his habit of hunching over and making funny head movements when he's berating the contestants
bobbbyyyy says on 13/Jul/14
on the jonathan ross show gordon was shorter than him and jonathan ross claimed to be 186, so gordon must be around 184 or just 6ft. he claimed he was 6ft, but that depends on whether he was wearing shoes at 19 or not.
Lenad is sexy says on 12/Jul/14
doesn't look any more than 6'1 to me on hells kitchen
mike says on 17/Jun/14
Rob, why not just list him 6ft 1.25 instead of .3?
[Editor Rob: not sure if the model is identical, it looks same brand but maybe not exact model number so the 1/8th error may or may not be present.]
Stephanie says on 30/Apr/14
19-year-old boys are often still growing so I wouldn't really take his height at that age into consideration. I think he's 6' 1"-6' 2" now.
Charlie says on 29/Apr/14
JAJ you liar, Beckham isnt any "178-179" he is 180 cm!
Astaroth says on 29/Apr/14
I don't buy him at 6'1.3". Looks a hair taller than Jane Lynch in Masterchef USA. Either Jane Lynch was wearing lifts in her Glee set sneakers or Chef Ramsay is a strong 6.05.
Click Here
[Editor Rob: that's the unknown with Ramsey, he was measured about 6ft 1 3/8ths on the stadiometer, but we really don't know if it was barefoot or in whatever footwear...]
Sam says on 24/Apr/14
If James May is 5'11.75" as listed, than anything over six foot does seem unlikely for Ramsay, although I watch his shows and Gordon can seem 6'1" range at times.

omg1234 says on 11/Apr/14
gordon ramsay same height as james may, but marco pierre white is taller than gordon.
kate says on 22/Mar/14
Gordon is 182cm to 183cm I am that height and we were the same
JAJ says on 18/Feb/14
Barely two inches taller than 5'10" - 5'10.5" 178-179cm David Beckham. So about 6.0" 183cm to Gordon Ramsay.
hess says on 14/Feb/14
I think 6 to 6.1 is right he said once he had size 14 feet thats huge for that height
ballz says on 4/Feb/14
I think he is closer to 6'- 6'1 because he seems about to my teacher's height.
BigGameHunter says on 12/Jan/14
Smaller than white who maintains 6'3 seeming 6'5 because he doesn't shop at supermarkets, shies away from ego, women and knows his mirrors, usually just drinks coke with a straw to maintain his perpetual moment of clarity.

Oliver is like 5'9 but tubby as hell.
James says on 12/Jan/14
Never looked 6'2
ken says on 29/Dec/13
I do not think gordon ramasy is 6ft 2 he is shorther than a lot of celebrities that height I think is no more than 6ft 0 even that height you can look talo and imposing look at victoria azarenka tennis player how tall she looks at that height
Tempest says on 22/Sep/13
I would agree with Somborac. He's shorter than Norm MacDonald when they appeared on Conan together.
Somborac says on 25/Aug/13
I met him at the book-signing event at the Indigo in the Eaton's Centre, Toronto. I'm 6ft with shoes on & was eye-to-eye with him. He's 6ft even, not an inch taller or shorter.
Tempest says on 9/Aug/13
He's shorter than Norm MacDonald.
Tempest says on 2/Jul/13
I thought he was 6'2". His large head and tall hair give him a bigger appearance. He can sometimes pull off looking 6'3".
miko says on 25/Jun/13
I do think Gordon is a 6'1 flat guy, who with boots and big hair can on occasion give a 6'2 impression.
[Editor Rob: I bumped into another chef last month, nick nairn who actually looked in the 6ft 1-1.5 range.]
Twong says on 23/Jun/13
On the stadiometer on The F Word he was 186.5cm (can see the marks for cm; bold writing every 10cm with 8 regular marks inbetween). I located the mark for 180, then worked it out with a little bit of guesswork; based on the spacing of the other visible marks, I worked out the obscured bits.

186.5cm (6ft 1.43in) minus, say, 0.3-0.5in for typical footwear (it wasn't a serious measurement; they wouldn't have bothered removing their shoes) leaves him at 6ft 1in +/- 0.1in as an average, midday height.
legit177cm says on 20/Jun/13
rob can you give me the youtube link from the picture you posted in above to see how he was measured. Thank you
[Editor Rob: I think it was from a channel 4 video, I don't have it now.]
Sam says on 19/Jun/13
Rob, the link you have at the top to Chef Ramsay's measuring does not work, at least not for me.
[Editor Rob: yeah, imageshack delete images after a while. I don't have the full size image but The smaller one...but it was a clear example of faking a height. Erin called out 6ft 2.5 but the reading really wasn't even 6ft 1.5 when I looked at it closely!]
legit177cm says on 7/Jun/13
I'm about 5'10. When i met him my eye was at top of his nose, so i dont know how tall he was but i guess he was 6'1 or fraction over but dont forget he had a good solid inch boot on and i was with 0.5 inch sneaker.
josh says on 3/Jun/13
i always thought he was 6ft 1 hes a strong 6ft 0 so maybe 6ft 1/2 185-186 my opinion,hes not 6ft 2 though as google claims
Frost says on 1/Jun/13
I'm 5'1" and Gordan was a good foot taller than I was when I met him a few years ago.
Tom says on 4/May/13
I think Lenny must be between 1.89 and 1.91. He didn't look much taller than 6'0'' actor Treva Etienne in an episode of The Lenny Henry Show in 1988.
Yaspaa says on 3/May/13
I saw Lenny Henry with Frank Bruno at a comic relief thing years ago, and Lenny was definitely taller or at least appeared to be, which is why I always thought Lenny was 6'4.
Tom says on 8/Apr/13
He looked about 6'0 standing next to comedian Al Murray who is apparently 6'3 which is also supposed to be the same height of Lenny Henry; when Lenny met Gordon he was approximately three inches taller(the videos are on YouTube).
Victoria says on 30/Mar/13
Gordon is around 6'0.5 to 6'1 similar to Jonthan Ross does anyone know his shoe size i have heard him say size 14 and 15 feet
Scott says on 15/Mar/13
He looks 6'1 he quoted last year 15 stone with size 14 feet
dicksock says on 12/Mar/13
He's definitely a solid 6'1". I'd bet anything on that.
James says on 21/Feb/13
6'1.5 (187cm) out of bed
6'1.25 (186cm) morning
6'1 (185cm) lunchtime
6'0.75 (185cm) afternoon
6'0.75 (185cm) evening
6'0.5 (184cm) bedtime
Arch Stanton says on 19/Jan/13
Actually he seems to have on flattish fur boots in the lower pic which I doubt would give much more than an inch. But Rylan surely looks no less than 4 inches taller...
Arch Stanton says on 19/Jan/13
Don't forget though Trent that it's highly unlikely Rylan had on equal footwear with Gordon. He usually wears heeled shoes. He's near 6'6" in them I think.
Trent says on 3/Jan/13
Oh, and those pics with Rylan are very good. There is a bit of distortion, but no way is that a guy only 2.7 inches shorter than Rylan.
Trent says on 3/Jan/13
It seems unlikely she would have made him take his shoes off. It's not like he was being formally screened for the agency. It was just a gimmick thing for the show. So he measures 6'1 and 1/3, minus his shoes and the stadiometer 1/8" error he's 6' even. He claimed that himself at one point, and there is no way he would have downgraded himself, knowing how arrogant he is.
klem says on 27/Dec/12
He looks from 6-0.5 to 6-1 with Beckham, if Beckham is 5-11.5.
Arch Stanton says on 26/Dec/12
Seeing how Ramsay looked next to the genuine 6'4" guys on the Cook along and that he measured roughly 6'1.5 on the stadiometer, chances are he is actually 6'0.5 barefoot. But I've long said his height and build is very similar to my own, it's possible he is a bit shorter than I thought. Strange thing is he often looked near 6'2" and 187 next to those footballers.
Arch Stanton says on 26/Dec/12

O dear. Scroll down. See him next to Rylan Clark who claims 6'4". If anything Rylan edges out Hoff in comparison to how Hoff looked next to Ramsay last year. He makes Gordon look little more than 6'0 here.
freddie says on 26/Dec/12
Vika is right, although we cant prove he had shoes on I think he did I met in July this year and I am 6'0.5 barefoot 6'1.5 with shoes on and was eye to eye with him Gordon is 6,0.5
vika says on 23/Dec/12
Editor Rob If gordon was only 6'1.5 with shoes on then he can be no more than 6'0.5 barefoot, so why not downgrade him to 6'0.5 he looks that height not much taller than david beckham
[Editor Rob: he's not quite 6ft 1.5, whether he is in shoes or not or how thick they are we don't know.

If he wasn't then 184-5cm is probably barefoot height.]
Trent says on 20/Dec/12
Are you sure he claimed 15 stone? I'd be surprised if he was that high, 6'1.3 or 6' even.
Amanda says on 19/Dec/12
On a recent cooking show of his in November he was asked to dance, he refused he said 15 stone and size 14 feet, he is somewhere around 6'1.5 no more but no less.
[Editor Rob:
as I mentioned before he was measured (whether barefoot or not we don't know), but the model called out 6ft 2.5 for some reason even when the reading itself looked just shy of 6ft 1.5!]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/12
Gordon Ramsey 6ft1.5(187cm)
Marco Pierre White 6ft2.5(189cm)
James says on 20/Nov/12
Ramsey is tall but I wouldent describe him as 'strong tall'
joe joe says on 19/Nov/12
it happens Im a weak 6'1 and my feat are a size 14 even when I was a younger at about 5'11 My feet were already a size 13 uk not US which is smaller. so it happens. Growing is not an exact science people.
James says on 18/Nov/12
I know someone who is 6'4 with size 16 feet
Arch Stanton says on 11/Nov/12
Yeah its very rare Haddock but some guys do have freakishly large feet for their size. The brother of one my mother's friends is 6 ft range and size 15 feet too. I doubt he'd lie about that.
James says on 5/Nov/12
6'1 like Johnathan Ross
haddock says on 20/Oct/12
i find the size 15 feet claim hard to believe. look how short he looks next to conan gordon is only about 6`0 no way does he have size 15 at that height it is not logical. peter jones dragons den 6`7 has size1 4feet. 6`0 size 15 feet something not right there
Shaun says on 14/Oct/12
No Cranberries, UK size 15 US size 16. Yeah its about what guys near 6'10" wear.
Charles says on 4/Oct/12
I read in the daily mirror an article when gordon was asked to go on strictly come dancing, Gordon said with size 16 feet I think not, I always thought he had size 15 feet, I met gordon in London in august and he told me he was indeed a size 16, Gordon Ramasy has size 16 feet
Shaun says on 27/Sep/12
Ivo Karlovic has US Size 16 feet/UK size 15 and he's 6 ft 10, about right proportionally!
Shaun says on 27/Sep/12
nothing says on 22/Aug/12
he really needs an upgrade rob, seriously 186cm is absolutely ridiculous for him, not even before bed!!!, he's at least 187cm without the hair!

Well he looks very close to my height and build, a bit less toned maybe and my lowest is 186. Actually next to the Hoff at Christmas he was struggling to look even a flat 6'1 though.
Shaun says on 27/Sep/12
Size 15 feet, he has said that a few times, yes that's size 16 US and the shoe size of a basketball player approaching 7 ft. A brother of my mother's friend I met once had size 15 feet and he was only about 6 ft..
Shaun says on 27/Sep/12
No he usually claims 6 ft 2 and 15 stone. He said he used to be 18 stone od; if you look back at old series from like 2002 he was a porker and a lot angrier back then...
charles says on 25/Sep/12
under 6`0is crazy i met and we were the same height 6`1 i am so gordon is 6`1he has size 14 size 15 which are huge for that height
alan says on 22/Sep/12
clive I think Gordon Ramasy has size 14 feet, I found it in a article
Clive says on 21/Sep/12
Editor rob do you know what shoe size Gordon Ramasy is, is he size 14 or is he size 15?
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure]
Aaaron says on 19/Sep/12
He changes stats every time he uses them. I've heard him say 6' 1", 6' 2", 15 stone, 17 stone, size 14 feet and size 15 feet. why can't he make his mind up,he never played pro for Rangers either
James says on 8/Sep/12
I met Gordon recently in the United states I am 6'1 and were very similar in height I cannot see how he is under 6'1
ANDREA[ITA] says on 8/Sep/12
Rob, you said you dont know if he had shoes on but you should be able to see if he looks more a 186-187 guy or a let's say 183-184 guy? You give some people you didnt meet the 1/4 inch measurement, so that means you're pretty precise... It must be easier to choose between 186-187 or 183-184 than choose between 5'11 or 5'11.25, if you know what i mean!
James says on 2/Sep/12
I was reading an article in the daily mail recently about how he struggled to get his body into a small bath in a hotel room in America it said he was 6ft 1, that probably came from gordon himself so i say 6ft Ramasy is
Thunderbolt says on 31/Aug/12
I met Gordon Ramasy in London in July, I am 6'0.5 and we were exactly the same height, if rob said the stadiometer said 6'1.3 in shoes that makes sense he is 6'0.5 barefoot, if Gordon Ramasy does have size 15 feet he has massive feet for his height
Manering says on 30/Aug/12
editor rob I do believe that gordon is around 6ft 2 6ft as some people are saying on here is too low. i thought Gordon ramasy had size 15 feet. he said that in an interview with Jonthan ross about 4 years ago now.
Triplescrew says on 29/Aug/12
He says in Kitchen Nightmares UK that he has size 14 feet. That would be pretty gigantic for someone who was only 183cm...definitely looks closer to 6'2" on the show.
Pike says on 25/Aug/12
Rob I think you should downgrade Gordon Ramasy down to 6'0-6'0.5 ( 183cm-184cm)I saw a old epiosde of the F word in 2008 when he was measured, he had his shoes on and was 186-187cm.
nothing says on 22/Aug/12
he really needs an upgrade rob, seriously 186cm is absolutely ridiculous for him, not even before bed!!!, he's at least 187cm without the hair!
nothing says on 15/Aug/12
no way he's only 186cm, i give him 188cm and 189.5cm with the hair

i watch a lot of his shows and he always one of the tallest people or the tallest, and to tell u the truth 6 ft 1 186 is not always the tallest among people esp in Europe...
james says on 8/Aug/12
i met gordon ramasy in london last month after my 23rd birthday. i am 6`0 barefoot and was eye to eye with him. gordon ramasy is exaclty 6`0. is it possible rob that he could be downgraded to 6`0. the 6`1.4is obivously a shoes measurement
james says on 25/Jul/12
under 6ftis a joke i met him i am 6ft1.5and we were the same height so gordon is sis feet one and half
Shaun says on 16/Jun/12
Marco Pierre is the tallest chef I think, that James Martin bloke in my opinion looks more 6'2" and not quite as tall as he claims. I saw Marco on BB about 6 months back and he looked at least a legit 6'3".
Shaun says on 22/Jan/12
@Serge. Not even 6 ft? LOL. Seems as he has two inches on David Beckham and Robbie Williams.. I'll agree he looked 6'0.5" next to Hasselhoff though.
