Wow youre quite the hypocrite to say im belittling you and than proceed to argue with an 18 year old calling him a virgin..classy. And your back to the same argument about why you would downgrade him its to make him seem less tall compared to your height.that's why so many people downgrade tom cruise or justin bieber it's pure jealousy. its not that hard of a concept to grasp canson and also calling me mad when you wrote 2 comments ridiculing me,its the pot calling the kettle black.anyways I'm going to refrain from commenting in this page as you're becoming to enraged and having to result to insults its probably best to end it here.
Editor Rob: yes, let's draw a line under this.
Canson said on 11/May/17
@Insomniak: you ever heard of bust a guy measurements? Or shoes? You said I downgrade everyone to be my height or shorter. Explain how I'm making a guy 7' tall my height or shorter than me. Also explain how I've downgraded every person I've commented on here. I haven't commented on every page here clearly and I haven't downgraded every person I've commented on if you look closely enough. But you're too into attacking people because your a self righteous POS. Why don't you go grow up and mature before spewing anymore of your crap out of your mouth because you don't like what someone else says on a free site where everyone is allowed to have an opinion. My opinion of you is you're a self righteous immature troll
Canson said on 11/May/17
@Insomniak: I didn't say all measurements number 1. Number 2 don't sit here and get pissed off at me or at Christian. The comment that you made precipitated all of this. To express your oipinuon is fine to disagree is fine to belittle because you don't like the comment is not. I said whyte is 7'0" btw which is the guess but you had to go on. Why don't you go out and find yourself your first girl to get laid from
insomniak said on 11/May/17
He said a few comments down that nba players or the people measuring perform tricks to make the nba players taller during their measurements which is essentially faking a measurement. Maybe you should pay attention to the conversation before you comment next time.

So just cause we're not talking about my height specifically doesn't mean I'm not allowed to comment in saying I think you're wrong about a certain height. If everyone were to do that than there'd barely be any comments in celebheights it's called this for a reason. And I target you because you make ridiculous claims such as the nba faking measurements, it's a bit paranoid.

When did Canson ever say that NBA measurements are faked? If you can find the specific comment, screenshot it and send the link, please do so.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 8/May/17
I believe he's would measure taller than Shaq.

@Insomniak: I didn't misconstrue a thing. You said that as an attack because you stereotype me as a downgraded which is fine can care less. But I said nothing about 6'11 I said 7'0" tall. That he's no more than that. So when you attack me like that I spect the response I gave you back. Yes I do comment back to people but that is generally when they send fluff like that to me attacking me first. I admit I have before but your intent was to belittle me. That comment was proof of that. And when we say nba pre drafts. I don't trust them because I've met many NBA players and can look at some and tell how tall they actually look and have talked to people who have met them as well as a scout who is in the NBA who says that they do some of the tricks they do. Either way why does it matter how I comment? I don't see you saying that to people who constantly upgrade people an inch or two? Sounds like you have a personal problem with me. Why do you care what height someone listed a perfect stranger as anyway? We aren't talking about your height or you.

insomniak said on 4/May/17
Canson again you misconstrued what I originally said,firstly,I didn't claim that you were his height I said you downgrade people so their closer to your height 7'1 to 6'4 is a greater difference than 6'11 to 6'4 hence why you downgrade all the people who are way taller than yourself. You downgrade nba players who've been measured,claiming their all morning measurements,but do you really think they all sleep in the building and than get woken up and measured the next day? No they've probably been up a couple of hours and lost most of their height.most normal people wake up at 6am so even if they got measured at 9 am that's a 3 hour difference by than I've already lost half an inch maybe even more if I'm doing strenuous activity. I suggest you look at robs YouTube video it was morning but Jenny was already at her usual low because of the arduous job she does. And don't act all high in mighty saying these are all guesses let's please stray away from comments disagreeing because I've seen you do that to a lot posters here you hypocrite,I thought it was all subjective man.
Canson said on 4/May/17
@Insomniak: we're all making educated guesses here. Fact is none of us has measured many of these or seen. But what's not to say he isn't right or I'm not or you're not? We could all be wrong or right. Doesn't really matter. But to say someone downgrades to make them their height etc that's just sounding like because you don't like their estimate that you are basically trying to take a stab. Funny how the people who upgrade every listing don't ever hear that when I can flat out say they are wrong. It's common knowledge that many of these people are overlisted. Having met some here and putting up pics of others next to them makes sense. Having others that have met them as well same thing
insomniak said on 3/May/17
Christian said that you and his guesses were pretty accurate as if he'd measure them before which is why I said that in the first place.
Canson said on 2/May/17
@Insomniak: this is all debatable of course but what you're saying is I haven't measured them neither have you. Everyone else is saying 7'0" too here
insomniak said on 1/May/17
Christian just because your agree with his height listings it doesn't make it accurate,unless you've measured all these celebrities and he's probably taller than 7 feet cause he's stooping he has a longer spine therefore would lose more height than Rob.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 1/May/17
I'm very sure this guy is over 7'0" flat comfortably and roughly 7'1" like Rob said. 6'11.75" is too low let along under it.
Canson-194CM (6'4 3/8) said on 29/Apr/17
@Christian: thanks! And I also definitely agree with most of your estimates! As you said easier for us to tell guys in that very tall 6'3-6'6" range as we're both only minimally different
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 24/Apr/17
He may be more 7ft than 7ft1, but 5ft8 guys like Rob couldn't tell the difference between a 7ft guy and a 7ft1 guy, unless if the two stood side by side. I don't blame him though. The more gap there is between your height and the other person's height, the harder it is for you to guess their height. I literally cannot tell the difference between a 4ft11 or 5ft woman when I walk past them, both look the same height to me, but it's very easy to tell apart a 6ft4 and a 6ft5 guy, as I'm close to their height myself.

And as for @insomniak, what you said about Canson is false. He tends to estimate celebrities at a lower height than Rob's listings, but he's usually pretty accurate and I believe his estimations more than other visitors.
Canson said on 16/Apr/17
@Insomniak: well I'm not 7'0" tall so how the hell would I. "Want" him to be my height? You're a troll. I don't see you saying that to anyone else here who said he's 7'0" tall not 7'1"
Canson said on 16/Apr/17

He makes you and Jenny look really diddy!
Mark(5'9.25 said on 28/Feb/17
Rob, would this guy be an honest 7'1", a weak 7'1", or a strong 7'1"? I would have said an honest one, nothing less of it.
Editor Rob: I'd say he probably did measure roughly 7ft 1, over 7ft.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 15/Feb/17
@Nasir

That's the thing about real 7'1"ers like Ian Whyte (who would be taller than Shaq, a true 7 footer as well). They make everyone look very tiny. If you notice, Ian in the photo isn't standing up straight either, making his claim more than honest or even slightly downplaying it.

I'd expect this guy to hit near 7'2" or 7'2" flat in the morning.
Nasir said on 14/Feb/17
Omg, you look like kids near him!
NIck said on 4/Feb/17
typical 210cm guy Ive seen few around here being in Finland obviously the 216cm makes him more marketable :)

184-182 said on 27/Nov/16
My guess is 215cm. Probably has a large height range cause of how tall he is. I bet he loses at least 3cm in a day.
mrtguy said on 9/Oct/16
Rob, was Michael Kingma originally the tallest man of the site before Ian Whyte??

Even if Kingma isn't the tallest he certainly has the biggest head
Editor Rob: tallest I had met yes...
Grant said on 6/Oct/16
Is he the tallest person you have ever seen/met, or just the tallest on this site?
Editor Rob: I've seen a few guys near, but nobody who would stand out as taller than him.
Brandon said on 18/Sep/16
7'0" on the dot with loose posture
So 7'0.5" is probably his actual height.

214cm is more like it.

7'0 3/4 in the afternoon, the giant king of Celebheights until nowadays.
Peter 179cm said on 8/Jul/16
Nearly 7 feet tall with lose posture.
He's 215cm minimum.
Ice said on 3/Jul/16
Extremeley tall men often have a very heavy bone structure , therefore not "looking" their real weight . Of course there are some giant dudes who are built extremeley skinny , like Manute Bol was , who are just underweight from ectomorphism and rapid growth phases in their teens , they are very light for their height , but giant guys like Ian Whyte who are just normaly built can be very heavy , even for their height , without looking it .
Derek said on 30/Jun/16
Time for a downgrade Rob?
Editor Rob: really hard to say if he is only 7ft...I think I will leave his height steady, although in the future I might see him again.
Canson said on 28/May/16
@Johno: I doubt he's taller than Shaq. Prob the same height. If he is its maybe 1/2". But I agree with Rampage as well. He isn't over 7' flat at all
Grant said on 6/May/16
How can u tell how tall someone is compared to you when your under their chin
Editor Rob: you can maybe use someone else beside a person to get a better idea

Over 7'0 is no way
Johno said on 15/Apr/16
I believe Mr Whyte would be taller than Shaq.
5'13.5 said on 4/Apr/16
@Moke If there are people this guy's height then it is proof we haven't reached our natural maximum of average height (yet), just give it time, (if there is enough resources that is) for future population to grow to such a height average slowly enough to adapt properly to such a height difference (Strength of the whole body etc and how gravity and other factors affect that), it would take a while, but if we have abundant resources (e.g, food) for everyone in the world it would be possible. The world's population would keep the average height lower due to the ratio of resource to populace, or at least that is what seems logical to me. My point is if you have a low population density with abundant resources there would be a higher average height (I don't want to go into the specific economics of this factor, I am assuming you understand); and we can see it in certain select countries, at this very moment in time. What is left is how the Earth it self and it's gravity would hinder such growth. It's just Evolution, pretty much.

He could rest his chin on a 6'2"er.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 3/Mar/16
He comes right up around the 7'0" mark on the height lines but I can believe he could measure 7'1". Not any taller, though.
Bard said on 20/Feb/16
Nice scale. Looks a weak 7 ft here, but his posture isn't the best. Note how tilted his legs are. His claim still seems pretty honest.

I did have him at 6'11.5 years ago, waaaaay down below on the page.

6'11.5


Seems as if Mr. Whyte isn't standing in his full position. He's def. taller than 6'11.5''.

@Moke
One source gave Russian youngsters an average of 176,4 so about 5'9.5 although you can assume that the average in a city like Moscow could be around 5'10-10.5".
Yeah some comments are laughable.Do people realize that there is no more than 500,000 people over 6'5 worldwide,possibly less.Now finding someone much taller is almost exceptional wherever you live,even in Netherlands.That's the beginning of the exceptional range,generally when you're taller than this it's more that the tall genes are running in the family.

Thats a prime Show.In the 90's he was in the 7ft range likely 7ft 0.5
Nowdays more like a weak 6ft 11

I'd still reckon Big Show is a solid 6'11'' maybe 7'0'' on a good day. Not too long ago a reddit user claimed his height of 6'11'' Click Here he looked every bit of a 6'11'' guy. Big Show slightly looks taller because of his head and that guy is proportional.

That man has to duck like over 1.5 feet in order to walk around in the underground train . Im shocked every time I see him . There are men out there who would be known internationally if they decided to make there height public . That african black guy would be 1 of them ; for sure . He must be close to 8 feet tall .

Rob do you think the guy who claimed 7'1''and 435 lbs, is actually more in the 6 ft 10-11 range.

@ Aizenkur
I don't think russian men are taller than european men. I couldn't get data over the internet about heights in russia. But the tallest people on this earth live in the balkan region and the netherlands, followed by scandinavians and icelander. Of course you will see many tall men (and women) on the streets of every big city. And as a (tall) man I think, taller men just happen to pop up in your visual field. What's more: people in the western hemisphere are done growing in height for some years now. We've reached more or less the natural maximum. What's more - it's not very healthy to be over a certain height since we are a species that walks upright.
Aizenkur said on 11/Jun/15
I live in Moscow. In public places (like underground stations for example) I often see people with my height and taller (more people mean more possibilities meet people from different standart deviations of height). I almost don't get comments about height (people usually don't care). And when I talk about rare tall this mean that people will reacted on height other people if they ~205cm+ (this is my expirience for place where I'm live). Amoung young generations enought tall people in these days.
hal said on 10/Jun/15
@Aizenkur
Are you for real? Where you live, men who are 6'5" or taller aren't a uncommon site? And rare-tall starts at 205cm? What do they feed the men in your country?
Aizenkur said on 9/Jun/15
@Nick
Most tall people are 6'2 or 6'3. Sometimes 6'4. But you very seldom see people 6'5 and more-
I'm disagree. I live in large city and everyday see people with same height as me (my height 196cm) and taller. This is not big deal. People's height started be rare when they noticeable taller than 2 m. (205cm+ or so).
@ Arch Stanton
You could go five years and never see a guy this big even in city.
This can be correrct only for small towns and villages or for Asia countries. For the past year I have seen at least 2 mans head taller than me (they was more than 215cm) at underground stations.
Aizenkur said on 9/Jun/15
Nick says on 18/May/15
Lol Mike, this guy is 1 feet and 3/4 inches taller than the average men. So yeah he is absolutely gigantic, not just "a little taller than usual tall men." Most tall people are 6'2 or 6'3. Sometimes 6'4. But you very seldom see people 6'5 and more-
I'm disagree. I live in large city and every day seen people with my heigh (196cm) and taller and don't care about it. This is not so rare thing. In past year I have seen people head taller than me at least twice (215 cm or so) in the underground stations. So hard believe that people can't see such height several years (somebody post about 5 years). This probably only if you live in very small towns or village.

Rob have you ever seen somebody taller than Ian Whyte?

I know a few tall people. One of them is 6'11 the other one is 6'9,
I also met one guy who was 7 feet tall.
They all seem very very tall but not gigantic like one man I saw once.
Click Here You can not see his face, so i think it's okay that I took a picture from him and upload it here.
He is the inoficially tallest man from germany with 7'4.

...and here is what I dont understand it.
If I should guess somebodys height who is 7 feet, maybe I would guess him somewhere around 6'10 to 7'1 but the one guy seemed like he was 3 meters tall.
He seemed so tall I really thought he must be more than 8 feet.
Everyone looked after him and the people started to talking that he must be 2,50m and there was one woman who told me that he is 7'4 and I couldnt believe it even though I know so many tall people for scale.

Where do you think is the limit from very very tall guy (people usually dont recognize them) to abnormal giant?
[Editor Rob: at airports I have seen some euro basketball players who were near Whyte's range, but I couldn't tell if they really were taller or not.]
Arch Stanton said on 22/May/15
@Mrtguy You'd have to be pretty nuts to genuinely want to be as big as this. Do you realise just how difficult it would be every day at 7 ft 1 in public and basic things like cleaning/DIY etc? I can understand 6'5-6'8 but over 6 ft 8 or 9 is definitely into excessive territory. Bigger does not mean better, there's definitely an optimum. Over 6 ft 9 is definitely into unfortunately tall territory IMO.
mrtguy said on 21/May/15
Rob I am defiantly that guy who has an Obsession with the likes of Big Show, Ian and other Big guys on this page you obviously realize it.
Anyways do you think he can shrink to 6'11'' barefoot w/o shoes if he gained good chunk of weight like Nairn.
[Editor Rob: if he went up to 350-400 pound range for years it might effect his joints more.]
hal said on 19/May/15
Some of the comments on this site make me laugh. Like Mike's.

Actually, most tall people 6'0" or 6'1".

And Ian may have been the tallest actor to portray the Mountain, but he was too skinny. I'm glad they replaced him with Hafthor.

Mike this guy is a little longer than most very tall people ? What the heck are you smoking ? The tallest guys you can see in crowded places are between 6'4 and 6'5 tops. I'm 6'5 and this guy is 8 inches taller than me. I will feel short next to him. Mr white is a giant period.
Arch Stanton said on 6/May/15
@Mike Because you NEVER see guys out and about this tall that's why. Even in a big town you'll rarely see anybody over 6 ft 8. You could go five years and never see a guy this big even in city.
Mike said on 5/May/15
Why is everyone freaking out just because he's huge? Hasn't anyone been around big people before? I see 6'+ women and 6'9"+ men walking around pretty frequently in New York, LA and other big cities. This guy looks a little longer than most very tall people but he's hardly out of range for what men can be.
Rifle said on 25/Apr/15
Rob,
Any plans of adding Britain and Europe's tallest man Neil Fingleton?
Also do you think he is a natural 7'7.5" like he and Guiness WR claims? It's possible though as Albert Kramer measured 7'9.25" when he died at the age of 79 and his height was natural and not due to acromegaly/gigantism.

only 10" head?his head seems at least 1"taller than Rob's which gives at least 10.5",and since he's thin his cheeks give even the impression his head is longer.Anyways for someone at this height 10.5" is quite average
Tunman said on 10/Jan/15
How many persons are taller than him worldwide?I would have thought certainly less than 4000,any idea?
[Editor Rob: that becomes harder to say, but I wouldn't think there was more than a couple thousand at his height or above it.]

Hello Rob,

How tall do you think these two gentlemen are standing with Ian Whyte's replacement, 6ft9 Hafthor Bjornnson

Click Here

How tall do you think they are? The left must be 7ft4 and the right 7ft0
[Editor Rob: if he's that tall, and certainly he can look 6ft 8 range, so they make him look average!]

I thought they were liek 6'4, 5'10, and 6'1 without knowing any of them! Little guy in the middle is 6'8-6'9 400 lbs OMG.
Lee said on 17/Sep/14
so rob would you say he was taller or shorter than Kevin Peter Hall the guy who originally played the Predator? Or roughly the same height
[Editor Rob: they would probably look similar range to people in person, but I think Kevin Peter Hall would have been a bit taller.]

Speaking of Bjornnson, I personally doubt that he's anywhere near 6'9. There's some easy to find pictures of him standing next to Lena and Arnie, and going by those he's only around 6'7, maybe a hair higher.

I'd say there's a good 15 inches between the tops of their heads and his. Seems pretty accurate.
jasperwazup said on 11/Jun/14
After really looking closer at the above picture 7 foot and change is fair. he can stand around 7'1'' in normal .5''-1'' heel.
Concerned 181 cm said on 10/Jun/14
Have you considered adding Hafthor Bjornnson Rob? He claims 6'9, but the actor playing Oberyn Martell referred to him as being 6'8.
[Editor Rob: maybe, yeah he said 6ft 9 as his height]
jasperwazup said on 9/Jun/14
his shoulder height looks 5'11'' range next to 5'8.25'' Rob. Whyte is probably wearing flats or .75'' sandals. his head is no more than 10.75'' so his height is 6'11'' range.
Sam said on 9/Jun/14
This is the giant of many faces on Game of Thrones, I guess he played a White Walker in makeup in the very first episode, the Mountain for a couple episodes and I guess he's doing the motion-capture acting for the wilding giants now. The CGI giants looked pretty nifty in last night's episode.
176,2Tunman said on 23/May/14
Rob,he seems thin in this pic,look how the bones are appearing in his face how much does he weight?around 250?I would have liked to stand at this height for a week.
[Editor Rob: yeah 250-60 range for a guy like him. ]
Balrog said on 15/May/14
Rob, on season four of GOT he got replaced by icelandic strongman Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, what would be your guess for him? He definitely is shorter than Whyte but the guy is massive, he's listed at 2.05m and over 400 pounds!
[Editor Rob: he says he's 6ft 9]
Alex 6'0 said on 30/Apr/14
Comparing this pic to the Cudmore pic Whyte looks to have a good 6 more inches on you than Cudmore had!
Alex 6ft 0 said on 4/Apr/14
Rob, Id agree with 7'1 but when guys start getting nearer 7'0 and over it becomes harder and harder to gauge height unless you are in their height range. Some years back saw a guy at the bank. looked anywhere from 6'10-7'0 range but can't get a good guess when someone is so much taller than you
[Editor Rob: it can be harder to judge the further away the height.]
176,2Tunman said on 15/Mar/14
OMG!Never seen a 6'9 looking that small.They would look like a 5'9 with a 6'5 and a 6'1 if one didn't know their heights.
LOL,Rob maybe should delete this pic,or we will have some who will argue average is 6'11 or 7'.

176,2Tunman said on 23/Feb/14
Arch Stanton,I often agree with your comments butI should disagree with your last one.
Manute Bol was from the Dinka tribe and the average in the 50's was 182,6 which was about 3in taller than most European countries at that time for this tribe,now it's only 176,4 due to malnutrition and war consequences probably.Your 6'5 is really a joke,no way could an average be that high except perhaps in basketball.Most common height at Bol's youth was probably 5'9-6'3 there, and a good number of guys may have been around 6'6.Another legend of super tall people that you should forget.YES, they were tall but being in average like Michael Jordan,NO WAY. Also worth saying that the Tutsi tribe was nearly in the same range
176,2Tunman said on 22/Feb/14
Rob,I noticed that Celebheights had too many giants,out of roughly 6600 celebs.It seems that it's height that makes these people in particular famous.I mean,how many 7'+ is there worldwide?I would have thought about 10,000 maximum,honestly,I would hardly be convinced by a superior number.
[Editor Rob: yes there is a disproportionate amount of tall and extremely tall listings. If you took a random 6000 people from the street there would likely be no 7 footers and a lot less 6ft 6-10.]
JuanPaWärthon said on 21/Feb/14
If the other two are 5'8" then he can't be 7'1", there's too few difference
mitsos said on 15/Feb/14
How long do u think his head is? 11"?
[Editor Rob: for his height I think it is a fair size, certainly not quite as dominant looking as say a Giant Khali size head...I'd believe Ian's is more 10.5-10.75 inch range.]
Sam said on 21/Jan/14
Oops, producers got an idea that Whyte didn't make a strong impression as The Mountain in Game of Thrones since they cast a new guy, Hafthor Julius Bjornsson, in the role. He's the shortest yet at 6'9", although is hugely muscular. They're going to have to make The Mountain a "skinchanger" (is that the right word?) at this rate, I guess.
Joe257 said on 4/Jan/14
Hello Rob!

Do you think it could be possible to eventually get a picture of you with the Current World’s Tallest Man, Sultan Kosen (8’3”)!? Or for him to get his own page on celebheights.com? Kosen was supposedly 8’1” on 2010 (when he was 27) and now on 2014 he’s grown to be 8’3”, seems real suspect to me that he would grow 2” taller well into his 20’s! Also, I don’t know if he really looks a WHOLE Foot Taller (plus 2”) than Mr. Ian Whyte on the picture above! Attached is an article on him from 2010 that shows Sultan Kosen with the Second Tallest Man in the USA, George Bell (supposedly 7’8”), and a bunch of men of average height. Thank you for your reply!

[Editor Rob: I don't know if I'd ever see him...it is possible with extreme gigantism to grow later than normal, but I've not looked at anything to see if he was remeasured at 8ft 3]

Tall Joey,
That remeinds me how I felt in Thailand.

Blaze,
Yes you are about one inch taller than me when I was your age. Now I am 17 and I am 6'6". I think you may well outgrow me.
To be tall has certain advantages, I can tell you. As a whole I think I enjoy being tall. When I was verry young I didn't like that much, but now I am quite happy.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Nov/13
Yeah g image Neil Fingelton, 7 ft 7.5 and a natural giant.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Nov/13
Yeah Manute Boll came from a Sudanese tribe where the average guy is 6'5" or something, most of them are super tall and long limbed. I know a Somali guy who is of a similar caste and he's 6 ft 6 and probably 160 pounds or so. Rake thin and long looking. Obviously 7'7" is still an extreme even for Boll's tribe but with two extremely tall parents or extremely tall genes on both sides that sort of height can sometimes occur naturally. Neil Fingelton is actually a bit of 7 ft 7 I think and his height is natural too, but most of his brothers are like 6 ft 8 or 9 or something.
John said on 11/Nov/13
Blaze,
Nice to know that you are just 15 and you are already 6'5. I am 17 and I am 6'6. when I was your age I was only 6'4.
It is great to be tall, even if there are obvious inconvenients.
In fact you are absolutely right: we see many people that get us by the armpit, sufice they are 5'1 /5'2.
Now I am at ease with that but when I was your age I found myself a bit embarraced with some of my friends.
John said on 11/Nov/13
avi,
I am 6'6" at 17, which means i may well grow. Now I am happy with that but when I was young I felt quite embarraced with my height.
This is certainly genetically fixed. My mother's family has several men of my height and evven taller. My father is just 5'5"... He does not even reach my shoulder now.
Now it is preaty funny but not when I was 11 and I out grew my father. And at 15 when I was 6'4" and my father and my brother moved before me in front of the looking glass like two little boys, very much below my eyelevel.
Even at 10 I used to put on my father's clothes and was almost same height as him, and I remember I had mixed feelings about that situation. I loved being taken for a 16 or seventeen year-old and being addressed 'Sir' but i felt it too heavy a responsibility. Basically i felt unprotected and vulnerable as my father and my brother and my mother looked so small to me. I was the family big man and most adults were about my height, which gave me the sensation that I was the only one able to deal with them as equal.
Now it is different because I am so much above everybody in public transports, streets etc... and I got used to it.

Arch Stanton said on 13/Aug/13
Rob, LOL, Pierre on the Brad Pitt page says he's 6'4.5" and Pitt is just above his shoulder level at 6 ft!!!! I said he'd have to be Ian Whyte's height range or only have a 4.5 inch high head!! This site is wonderfully entertaining at times ;-] Yeah I think Ian is just a genetically extremely tall man. It happens. Neil Fingelton is 7'7" and a bit I think and he's a natural giant. A lot of men in Fingleton's family are 6'8"-6'10 I think he said, he just far exceeded his height potential that's all.

Rob, I met a very tall guy at the wedding the other day and my Aunty asked him his height as she was surprised to see a guy noticeably taller and bigger than me. He said he was six four and easily looked it and probably around 17-18 stone and similar sort of build and appearance to Peter Schmeicel. I guessed him at 194-95cm range before he said and I think he was under-cooking his actual measurement a bit, he looked more a weak 6'5" to me. Anyway, we got talking about height and he said that his mother was 6'2", father 5'10", with uncles who were 6'8" and 7'2"!!! I said to him that he's lucky he isn't bigger, and that the average height on his father's side is probably why he also isn't at least 6'8". So yeah, somebody like Ian Whyte could have similar genes on both sides of the family like that guy I met, extremely rare, but it happens. I'd have been interested to ask Ian how tall his parents/relations are.

[Editor Rob: the pituitary gland produces too much growth hormone (whether due to disorder/tumour) resulting in exceedingly tall heights. ]

This makes sense Rob but do you think Ian has a disorder like acromelagy or another pituitary disease? I doubt he has a tumor... but who knows medical issues are normally kept very private.

No , People can get this tall or even taller genetically . Hes this tall because of his genes . Manute Boll was 7'7 and didnt have any disorderes . The tallest Person without any sicknesses or Tumors was angus mc askill at 7'9/236 cm . Manute Boll said that his great grandfather was 7'10 but theres no evidence for that - but I can well imagine ist the truth so he must be the genetically tallest Person ive ever heard of of whom theres no evidence .

Duhon said on 2/Jul/13
It's possible to reach great heights without necessarily having a disorder. If you look at basketball players like shaquille o'neal, Wilt chamberlain, Yao Ming all very great heights without pituitary disorders.

There are usually tell-tale physical signs between being naturally very tall and having a disorder like acromegaly. White doesn't appear to have those signs.

All in seriousness how dies someone become this tall? It just isn't natural. Actually for anyone (a human) to be over 76 or 77 inches is not a good thing especially after age 50. Its mind boggling. Could it be a fluke? Extra human growth hormone in his youth?

Whyte's got a long thin neck and head, no question he's a less imposing physical presence than Conan Stevens, who looked like he would dominate The Hound in a hand-to-hand fight which is not necessarily true of Whyte. On this profile, there is a bunch of random shirtless pictures of Whyte and he looks like a leanly muscular rather than giant bear-like mound of muscle like Stevens. On GOT so far, Stevens had a lot more to do in his one scene than Whyte has had in his 2 or 3 scenes so far from last season.

Sam, he wore a prosthetic body muscle suit in prometheus not his natural physique. I think conan stevens was much better in the role of the mountain.
Sam said on 3/Apr/13
While Whyte is less effectively menacing than Conan Stevens in the role of The Mountain from Game of Thrones, although he is not as rail thin as everyone made him out to be when Stevens was first replaced. He looked quite ripped as the Engineer in Prometheus and we shall see how effective he looks sword fighting at some point in the series.

Rob, you think he's be a likely 7'3" out of bed. Do you really think he loses 2 inches at least in a day? Do you think 7'1" is the very least he'd be? I'm getting the impression you thought he looked at least this listing and might have guessed him a little higher than this, although it is very tough to estimate somebody's height who is this tall, don't exactly get much practice!

In photo comparison the line drawn from Kingma's head is actually about an inch over the top this guy's head.That's why he looks closer to Ian Whyte than to Cudmore.Who has a longer head Rob?This guy or Kingma?

yeah he probably looks a bit shorter than kareem abdul jabbar but I believe kareem was easilly 7'2'' at his peak.

I've met a rugby player who I know is listed at 6 ft 10 and looked it, but he didn't look a super giant. He stood out a mile and looked absolutely massive but he just looked huge. But I saw a guy at an airport once on a flight to Amsterdam who was around this guy's height and there's a big difference in the !! giant alert factor. I'm sure Rob would vouch for that there is a major difference between a big guy who is 6'8"-6'10 and a true giant who is 7 ft 1.
