@Vegas:

Yes, the main reason why I doubt Ali's 6'6" claim is because he looks taller (than 6'6") with Lou Ferrigno. And because there's no evidence that Ali has been reliably measured (like a self-measurement video)...we have to take his word for it. There is, however, lots of reliable evidence that Rob is 5'8". He has met Lou Ferrigno in person...TWICE! Rob is a good judge of height and I consider his 6'3" listing to be trustworthy.

Also, another reliably measured person (by his mother on TV), is Jean-Claude Van Damme. In this video, (the 176/177 cm) Van Damme gets dwarfed by Ferrigno. This video makes the 6'4" peak very believable.

Now if Ali Baba could prove he's 6'6" by standing on a stadiometer...then I would consider that to be "THE MASTER EVIDENCE" (LOL @ rockfellas). Otherwise, I ain't buying it.

@rockfellas:

That's the picture I'm talking about. It would be nice if Ali Baba could do measurement video for us. If he is 6'6", like he claims he is, it shouldn't be a problem.
__________

do you doubt his 6'6 claim?

alis shot with john cena does put him in the 6'6 range especially when you consider dennis rodman and max starks (who was measured just a hair over 6'7 barefoot) look about an inch taller next to cena than ali.

ali also has a full length shot with velvet sky and two guys on another forum i frequent have a full length shot with her. i actually met one of those in person and he claims (and looks 6'3) and his friend claims 6'5, comparing photos ali again comes out about 6'6

I'd say Ali Baba looks over 4 inches taller than Lou, I'd say he really struggles with 6'2 in that shot.
rockfellas says on 15/Apr/14
ronster, exorcist, alì said many times he is 6'6", he is shorter than 6'7". time for lies is over.

the epic pic, THE MASTER EVIDENCE:Click Here

the legit 6'6"(198cm) alì baba, with lou ferrigno.
Lou struggles with 6'2", alì towers over him, he is clearly 4 full inches taller than lou. Lou Ferrigno was 59 at the time. still in good shape. the pic shows how a legit 6'6" looks like. It is proven from this pic that lou ferrigno was max 6'3"(190cm) at his peak.
Ronster says on 23/Mar/14
Ferrigno was at least an inch taller than the 6'2.5" Eric Bana, nothing can change that. So Lou is still at least 6'3.5" and was 6'4.5" before height loss from hip replacements etc.
The Exorcist says on 19/Mar/14
Ali Baba looks 6'7" range in his picture with Ferrigno.

already posted:Click Here

a young lou with 5'7"-5'8"(170-172cm) chuck norris. I do not accept any measurement over 5'8" for norris because it should be a fake. So as you can see ferrigno looks max max max 6'2.75"(190cm) with chuck norris.
Lillo Thomas says on 2/Mar/14
Lou ferrigno is 62 years old right now. So he is at most 1 inch shorter than his peak. The evidence with Ali baba shows Lou to be between 6'2 to 6'2.5max . So his peak is between 6'3 and 6'3.5 max.

A young lou ferrigno with an american actor, McLean Stevenson: Click Here

This picture was taken "from the hulk period", so ferrigno was about 27-32 y.o. Peak height. Stevenson is listed here at 6ft 3in, but many said he was a little bit shorter. furthermore, Stevenson was already "an old man" in this picture. ferrigno is not taller than stevenson. So once again we can say that lou ferrigno peak height was 6'2.75"-6'3" (190cm). It is clear that anything over 6'3" is out of real for lou.
SuperManFan380 says on 5/Feb/14
Ali Baba, have you by any chance ever put up a video of yourself, barefoot, being measured?

It would verify a big piece of evidence on how much most celebs are exaggerated, if we have some proof of your only being 6'6".

From the photos you have shown, a lot of guys who are "said" to be 6'5" are nowhere near your height, which would look almost the same as you in a picture if they were being honest, which obviously does make people wonder if you are not really damn near 7ft. Not to mention the guys who are about the same height as yourself who are "billed" as far taller than 6'6" who you have managed to get pictures with.

My apology in advance if you already have a video of yourself being measured. If so do you have a link, or know where it is posted?

Clearly there are some tall tale shenanigans going on in regards to heights. ;D

Ronster, I don't think Mayhew is actually leaning in that picture. I think the picture is tilted in Sambridge's favor (judging from the vertical items behind them). It does look like Mayhew has maybe an inch on him. I think this is more accurate. Click Here
thats Ross guy thought he was 7'4 or something! did you see that documentary?
anyway Mayhew is probably a strong 6'11 weak 7'0
@Ronster

no its not a full 2 inches more like 1.4-1.6 area
Ronster says on 26/Jan/14
Ali; It looks a lot more like two inches between Mayhew and Smabridge in that picture. What can decieve to make it look a bit less is the camera angle coming from a much lower height. If you look at the top of Mayhew's head and draw a line, he has more than an inch easily. I would say he is at least still 7' in that picture easily.
Ali Baba says on 23/Jan/14
If you compare Mayhew's posture in the picture with Ferrigno to the one with Sambridge you can see he's standing taller with Sambridge. It's very obvious he's straightened his neck out with Sambridge and has gained probably around 2".
Vegas says on 21/Jan/14
Ronster says on 20/Jan/14
Vegas, Ross Sambridge is 6'11" and while leaning a bit to his side Mayhew still has him by over an inch. Mayhew here is still between 7'-7'1" at least.
_____________

sambridge was measured 6'10. mayhew isn't 7'1 these days because here he looks noticeably shorter than ian whyte who was listed 7'1 in pro basketball (and rob has met whyte) Click Here

if you think ali looks 6'9 with lou then what height do you think the chap on the left looks with lou given lous posture is similar to his shot with ali Click Here
JT says on 21/Jan/14
Click Here A solid four inch difference. Mayhew's standing behind Ferrigno as well so add another inch to Mayhew and voila, he comes out to around 6'11" where he belongs at that age.
Ali Baba says on 21/Jan/14
Of course Vegas even said with Ross being 6'10" (documented on video measurement height) that would make Mayhew about 6'11", so he figured in that inch difference.

mayhew with ross sambridge who himself was measured 6'10 barefoot for a uk documentary. Click Here that puts mayhew at about 6'11.
Vegas, Ross Sambridge is 6'11" and while leaning a bit to his side Mayhew still has him by over an inch. Mayhew here is still between 7'-7'1" at least. There was no more than 4 inches difference between where Lou came up to Ali and Mayhew, so that still makes Ali min 6'8-9" with Lou. I am seeing the usual, people suddenly trying to lower Mayhew's or others heights, so transparent LOL.
Ali Baba says on 18/Jan/14
AVI, I think people believe my head is tilted back when it actually isn't due to the type of nose I have. With many people their nostrils are more shrouded than mine are. So unless they tilt their head back you cannot see their nostrils. With my nose my nostrils are visible even with my head tilted forward (as in my pic with Rob Terry). Not an attractive nose, but it's what I was stuck with. As far as my being tilted more toward the camera with Ferrigno I think his body actually has more of an angle than mine. My foot is forward, but my body is not quite as angled as Lou's. In any case I think that our heads are pretty even to the camera and this issue pretty much becomes moot.

Vegas, I remember seeing that documentary. Sambridge actually thought he was quite a bit taller and was shocked and a little disappointed when he was measured. I've seen him claim as tall as 7'4".

Mmhh to me he looks a bit taller than Mayhew who´s closer to the cam, just by looking at the possible pivot of their heads.
avi says on 18/Jan/14
@JT

What are you talking??
Ali baba looks about same as Rodman. Rodman is a 6'6 guy
Also the picture was favoring Ali more than Lou as Ali had his head tilt up and was angled closer to camera. Either way I can't see Ali having less than a weak 4 inches on Lou...

Ali’s picture with Ferrigno actually has a tilt favoring Ferrigno, which is corrected here. Click Here Straighten Lou up a bit and the difference still looks like an easy 4 inches.

Here, Ali comes out roughly 6 inches shorter than 7’1” tops Khali, who is standing behind Cena. Click Here Move Khali forward and the height difference probably ends up around 7 inches.

Here, Ali comes out a little shorter than ~6’7” Dennis Rodman Click Here and 6’7-6-8” Max Starks. Click Here

Ali’s height is legit; the height claims of most wrestlers and other celebrities are not.
Itchy Knee says on 16/Jan/14
I recently watched an episode of Night Court from 1984, Lou would of been 32, and Lou was obviously shorter then 6'4 John Laroquette, by may'be an inch and significantly shorter then 6'7 Richard Moll (who actually picks Lou up as if he were a child.) I'd say 6'3-6'3 1/2 tops peak height.
Ronster says on 16/Jan/14
Here is Lou with the verified 7'2" Peter Mayhew. Lou is at least 6'4" here as he comes up to Peters mouth so there is no more than 8-9 inches between them. Also, take a comparison with this one to the infamous Ali Baba picture with Lou, Ali looks close to the same height as Peter does next to Lou, maybe 4" difference. In that picture Lou comes up to Ali's nose, that means there is only 4 inches max diffrence on where Lou came up to the 7'2" Peter Mayhew, how can that possibly be if Ali is 6'6"?? That makes Ali at least 6'9-10" in his picture with Lou. There is proof of what i have said all along, you tell us how Ali but you are a lot taller than 6'6" in that picture as this comparison shows. Also, let's keep it civil - i am just proving my point.

Enough Ali Baba, back to posting my thoughts and a picture to help you ponder. Hogan was just under 6'5" at this time if that, and Lou is within an inch, maybe a tad more. That would make Lou 6'3.5" at 50 then correct? Same footwear.
Click Here

that could be 2 inches there and lets say Hogan was 6'5ish there then 6'2.5-6'3 would be likely. Lou is probably a strong 6'2 now and peak about 6'3
Ali Baba says on 14/Jan/14
Evidentially your memory is as bad as your knowledge about shoes. You seem to forget that you started making personal attacks on people on here (one of them being me) without provocation. Only then did I say anything to you. I have never bragged about my size. I only offer it for a comparison. You in the other hand think that people care about your claimed awesomeness.

By the way the difinition of smug is Entry Word: smug
Function: adjective
Meaning: 1 having too high an opinion of oneself

One example of that would be: "I'm built like a brick house"

The fact that you seem to think that I am taller than I am, wear lifts or strangely thick shoes only solidifies the evidence that Ferrigno is not as tall as you think he is. I'm sorry that either your friend is not as tall as you think or he is a bad judge of height.

[Editor Rob: Ali is true in one sense, you have used Ronster...but I am sometimes lenient about changing names. Many people do it, but isn't it better to stick with one name - I respond to people who stick by the same name! ]
Wrstlfan1 says on 12/Jan/14
LOL@Ali Baba.... or whatever your real name is. The fact it took you so long to put it together says a lot, I never hide who i am or what i think. A Wrstlfan is just what i am, where do you come up with Ali Babba? lol. See the difference between us is simple, I know what i post is true and therefore also feel that you are full of it. You are a tall man no doubt ( I am under 6' but built like a brick house, so potatoes, potatos), but you are also a crusadrer to try and make other tall men seem shorter for god knows what reason. All i can guess is that they are all so much bigger than you, because as any intelligent person knows, size has a lot more to do with gerth than height and that bothers you somehow? Call me all the names in the world, it only shows how immature and weak you are as a man. You do not respect anyone else's thoughts if they differ from yours to the point that you resort to namecalling, you think you know it all it would seem. I just maintain what i know for facts. In the case of Ferrigno, I know that the person who met him at sick kids is 6'3" barefoot, and i beieve him that Lou was taller when they met only last year (why woud he say so if he was not?), so something just does not jive with your picture with him, and i do believe that you are wearing height boosting shoes possibly even with lifts inside to look taller next to him. I also can see in your picture, and your video for sure that you always wear a smug look on your face which says a lot. Also in other cases, you are one of many who tries to pass off photos as evidence to shorten peoples actual height all the time. I have been right next to both Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant in 1988 when they were standing tall outside the ring nose to nose and Hogan WAS every bit 6'7" and then some, and Andre was at least 7'plus. The only reason i take any time to read and post on here is that it irritates me that there are such persons who use the internet to belittle others with no reason other than jealousy and envy. Andre the Giant 6'7-9"???, Hogan 6'3"??? Get real posters,as i stated on here before there are many of the height reducers who have gone from saying Hogan was only 6'4" to now admitting he was at least 6'6" or more, and that is because the evidence even in pictures is overwhelming and cannot be denied. Lastly, every time someone posted a picture of one of these giant men standing taller with someone of the same height you try and list them at, suddenly these other celebs get their heights slashed down in the same fashion LOL. It is so friggin obvious, and Ali you are one of the worst offenders for that. So i will not return your ignorance by calling you a name, I hope for your sake you find some humility and start living in abundance rather than trying to make others seem less to try and boost yourself. On a side note, remember when you said Lou seemed not so friendly when you met him? I have a theory on that, see I think if you are that smug all the time you put people off. Lou is a terrific human being, just ask my friends son who has been a sick kids patient for 2 of his 5 years, Lou took time to hang out with them and make them all feel better, not try and tear them down or belittle them somehow!!

I've posted an open invitation several times to meet anyone who may be down this way to show that I am the height I claim. And I think I've posted enough pics (and even a short video) to prove that I am indeed the person in the pictures. But since you seem to be too thick headed to get that, this is just for you: Click Here
Ali Baba says on 11/Jan/14
AVI, I've said before that a 6'2.5" listing could be fair for Ferrigno just to be safe. I always say he's about 6'2" and not an absolute 6'2" flat.

Wrstlfan1, I had suspected for some time that you wet in fact Ronster. Thanks for retro long that same story again to show me that you are in fact Ronster. Go ahead and change your name again if you want. It doesn't make you any more correct.

And now you have proven your ignorance. Thank you for your support.
No, sorry but i am not someone like most of you here who are crusaders out to try and alter people's perceptions of these giants heights, and i am exremely intelligent and can easily see you had thick soled shoes probably with lifts inserted for good measure. I know for a fact that a friend of mine who is 6'3" tall was shorter than Ferrigno only a year and a half ago and sick kids hospital where this great human being who you also tried to pass off as rude was spending countless hours cherring up kids with cancer. How does anyone here know that that is even you in that picture, let alone that you are the height you say you are? Judging height from photos is reiculous to begin with. Tilts, posture and angles/lighting alter things greatly. It is just like with Hogan, someone sees one picture of him looking the same height or slightly shorter in a picture next to a 6'4.5" guy and suddenly he must be only 6'3" max!! And certainly never over 6'5" prime!! Rediculous and unintelligent to say it as politically correct as possible.

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover

No he can't be 6'3. 6'2 is what he looks next to Ali baba and with Rob he looks a strong 6'2 maybe 6'2.5 but maybe he could stand super straight and measure 6'3 flat
@Ali baba

Yeah its crazy. 4-5 inch advantage!! But Lou is not standing straight in the picture so I really think I f he does he hits 6'2.5 . In the picture it really seems 4 inches. He must be standing at 6'1.5 and can regain an inch. Either way he'd struggle going above your eyebrows . Also consider how his legs are apart more. If the angle was better and you stood side by side with him I think he really can get to a strong 6'2.5. I was under impression that he was 6'3-6'3.25 between 20-50 then within last few years he "lost" .75 inch or so. So not aure why people think hes over 6'4 or something. I see guys his size (6'2-6'3) all the time

Not accepting anything less than 193-194cm absolute minimum for Ferrigno's peak.

He was lucky if he hit 6´4" flat right out of the bed at his very peak.

Hey all, i want to point out something that is clearly obvious in the infamous Ali Baba picture with Lou. I do now believe Ali that he is around 6'6" barefoot, he is however also CLEARLY WEARING SKETCHER TYPE HEIGHT BOOSTING SHOES. They add around 4-5 inches. Thanks for the attempt Ali lol.

MetalKid182cm says on 6/Jan/14
@mId Yeah, I understand what you mean. Arnold was never a full 6'2", but was probably close to it. Lou was never 6'5", even though he was/is a very tall man - I believe he was about 6'3.5" or 6'4" peak. I'm a huge Arnie fan, and wouldn't be bothered if his peak height was 5'11"-6'. That's still tall in my eyes.
Lillo thomas says on 5/Jan/14
Ali Baba is a legit 6'6 . He has proven his height with many pics . Stop the bs. Lou ferrigno look 6'2 next to Ali Baba.
Ali Baba says on 5/Jan/14
Once again,Wrstlsfan, I have no need to lie about my height. If I was truly taller I would claim that height. I don't like people lying about their height. Plain and simple. It is an annoyance to me. Probably because of people constantly asking me how tall I am. My shoes were not Sketchers nor do they have an extra thick sole. In fact the much maligned Sketchers don't even have an extra thick sole. For a short time there was a fitness fad in which several shoe makers made shoes with an oddly contoured sole claiming they helped shape women's butts. It was proven to be false advertising and no manufacturer makes shoes of those type any longer. There was never a men's shoe offered with that type of sole. Sketchers make shoes of all types with normally thick soles. I have measured the shoes I wore in the picture with Lou and they were well worn and only add an inch to my barefoot height. I'm sure Lou's shoes add more than that but I haven't ever tried to adjust for his shoe advantage. If I was really worried about trying to make him shorter I would factor that in. His height does not affect what I think of him as a person or in his chosen profession. I am willing to meet anyone on here if they ever come down this way to prove that I am not over my claimed height, and have said so before. Oddly I think I'm the only on here who has posted pictures and been told I'm taller than what I claim.

Here's an interesting thing for you all to take an unbiased look at. Danny Glover's height is listed as 6'1.5" today and in the picture with Rob (6'3" peak), yet Glover is clearly at least 2" shorter than Lou in the last picture Rob had with him. So then, going by Rob's listings that makes Lou minimum 6'3.5" today by Rob's own estimates, which are usually on the low side to be safe.
Wrstlfan1 says on 2/Jan/14
Mathew says;
Today Lou is about 6'2". He's not a legit 6'3". Look at the Ali Baba photo, for one. I think 6'2.5" would be a generous enough listing, figuring maybe he could straighten up a lot for a measurement.
You are all assuming that this Ali Baba guy is tellig you his true height. He is from what i have seen on here one of the biggest height lowering crusaders on here. Also, in the pic with Lou I think others have pointed out that Ali was wearing shoes with extra thick heels (sketcher type shoes). Either it is that or he is really taler than what he is telling us on here. Lou was over 6'4", and for sure now is 6'3".
mId says on 30/Dec/13
And I agree Red183.. The pic with his stuntdouble(I've seen him listed as 6'2 on his personal website).. and the 6'5 Michael Cooper video.. etc etc, are very telling. It's hard to dispute them if their listed heigts in fact are their true heights. The other pics are good too, but people can say they don't see ground/footwear in those. But yeah, the other pic/video are hard to dismiss.. and it would be fun if we can get Lou's real peak height.. Because then we pretty much get Arnolds true peak height too.
mId says on 30/Dec/13
Metalkid: I'm 6-6'1 so you would lose money on that bet :) And it's not about bringing anybody down, but to get the true height of a person.. If I've seen enough evidence that makes me Think someone is underlisted here, then I say that. And the same goes for when I Think someone is overlisted. I could go your route and say that people who try to keep Lou at a 6'5 or Arnold as 6'2 peak don't want to see their 'heroes' as shorter than what they claim.. It's the same thing and doesn't get us closer to finding out his true height(which is the point of this site right?). I just want the true height.. 6'5 or 6'3. What's your explanation as to why Lou is that much shorter than a guy(Michael Cooper) listed 6'5, if you see Lou as close to that height himself?.. Because surely you too must see how much shorter he is in that video of them together.. Making it hard for Lou being 6'4 or 6'5 if Cooper really is 6'5 as listed everywhere I've looked so far. Lou looks 6'3 tops in comparison to Michael there.. And if this is true.. Is in turn making Arnold a 6'0.5-6'1 guy in his peak.. At least by my estimation. I used to belive their listed heights, But after looking into it & Seeing some pics/videos.. I REALLY wonder now. It wouldn't make me like his movies any less though.
Mathew says on 28/Dec/13
I disagree with a 6'3" flat peak Lou. My current working theory is that I think he might have been a guy who would wake at 6'4.5" and at his worst measure 6'3.5". So likely just under 6'4" mid day, but close enough to claim it.

Today he's about 6'2". Maybe 6'2.5" to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Red183 says on 27/Dec/13
mId says on 22/Dec/13
.. Lou was max 6'3 peak.

I agree, here´s more proof:

Click Here Lou max 6´3" next to 6´8" Richard Moll and 6´4" John Larroquette

Click Here Lou max 6´3" next to 6´5.5" Ralf Möller

Click Here Lou max 6´3" next to 6´2" Hulk-Stuntman Manny Perry

Click Here Again Lou max 6´3" next to 6´5" Michael Cooper and 6´8" Kurt Rambis


Imo Lou was never even 6´4", I say 6´3.5"-6´3.75" right out of bed, 6´3" midday.
Today about 0.75"-1" shorter

Could be even less heightloss as he´s still in good shape.
MetalKid says on 25/Dec/13
I bet all of the people trying to lower Arnold and Lou's height are insecure, 5'4" men.

Ernie: I have an IQ of 140+ and I still don't understand how Lou at 6ft 4+ can look that much shorter than listed 6'5 Michael Cooper.. So please explain.. Is Cooper taller than his listed height.. could be, but it's rare they underlist. If you think this is the case then please post some evidence to support this. Because the way it looks now to me, based on that exercise-video(I'm guessing they are both in trainers) and michael coopers 6'5 listings.. Lou was max 6'3 peak. And merry Xmas to you too :)
Ernie says on 21/Dec/13
There are a lot of men with small man syndrome on this site who are desperate to lower the heights to make themselves feel better.
Lou was clearly 6ft 4+ in his prime and Arnold was clearly close to his claimed 6ft2. Given the amount of fame these guys have had, if they were noticeably shorter than this it would have been well documented by now. Yes they are an inch or two shorter these days but that is normal...especially for most tall men. Photos and film are not suitable for determining TRUE heights due to camera angles, foot wear and even lighting. Unfortunately the average IQ seems to be incapable of comprehending this information and hence we have this pointless but very amusing discussion of their heights based on unknown camera angles of photos and video with them wearing shoes???

Vibram's own estimations have no consistency with a different height listed for Arnold's height in each post and this in itself is the ultimate proof that you don't really have a clue what you are talking about.

Merry Xmas.
Lorne says on 20/Dec/13
@Dmeyer: I think 186 is still a good shout for Arnie, I think he'd straighten out for a measurement, I can see less than 3 inches if measured, like 193 Ferrigno 186 Arnie, though admittedly Lou could look a weak 6ft4...
Vibram says on 18/Dec/13
Looks 189cm (6ft2.25) compared to Rob. 15cm difference. Rob, if he was max weak 6ft3 peak (191cm) that would put Arnold at about 6ft1 peak because there always looked a little over 2' inch difference between them during their fierce bodybuilding days? Click Here

I think he needs a downgrade. He wasn't 6ft4 in his prime or even a high 6ft3 and his claims of 6ft5 as Hulk are ludicrous. Yeah Lou, maybe in thick army boots w/lifts.
dmeyer says on 18/Dec/13
Ferigno 6'4 flat makes Arnie 6'1 flat peak
Mathew says on 17/Dec/13
Today Lou is about 6'2". He's not a legit 6'3". Look at the Ali Baba photo, for one. I think 6'2.5" would be a generous enough listing, figuring maybe he could straighten up a lot for a measurement.
calvinator says on 17/Dec/13
Lou prime 6'4.5" now 6'3" if standing with good posture, looks good for his age too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 9/Dec/13
Looks 6ft2-6ft3
Edlt2882 says on 4/Dec/13
I saw Lou at a Health & Fitness Expo in L.A. He looked about 6'2", and wearing shoes that gave him about a 1-inch lift. So I would say he's between 6'1" to 6'2" now.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Nov/13
This guy is hard to pin down.

it is hard simply because rob seems to have a special attention for ferrigno and schwarzenegger. I do not why. We posted here many evidences,
this one is INCREDIBLE: Click Here
the video shows lou in his 30ies, with legit 6'5" michael cooper, the black guy. Stop the video at 01:17, you can see Ferrigno is clearly 2 FULL INCHES SHORTER than cooper. Also ferrigno has "big hair", cooper has very short hair. They wear same shoes, no excuses. So again: lou ferrigno peak was 6'2.75"-6'3"(190-191cm). Anything over 6'3" for lou is out of real. Today he is 6'1.5"-6'2" (187-188cm) This means that arnold schwarzenegger, clearly 2,5-3 inches shorter than lou, was about 6ft(182-183cm), nothing more. This is the reality, the rest is fantasy, overestimated sizes for the fans. For both of them and for many other bodybuilders, wrestlers, movie stars.....

Fans, do not forget it, lou with alì baba: Click Here
this is a recent pic, lou is still in good health. Alì baba is 6'6".
Probably, there are more than 4 inches between the two...
lou ferrigno peak was 6'2.75"-6'3"(190-191cm). Please, accept it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Nov/13
This guy is hard to pin down. He really did look 194-195cm in his prime. Definitely no less than 6ft4. At times, he does struggle to looking over 6ft2 now.

Maybe 189-190cm today Rob?
calvinator says on 26/Nov/13
Easily 6'4"+ in his prime, now at least 6'3"+, dose not always stand up straight. needs to get Brad Pitt training. :)
Red183 says on 25/Nov/13
dick dastardly says on 25/Nov/13
I repeat, i do NOT see lou ferrigno over 6'3" at his peak.

If you talk about low height, not right out of bed or early morning height I agree with you.





Rob there´s really no evidence for a big heightloss, he was basicly the same height as his 6´2" Hulk stuntman, he was easy 2inches shorter than 6´5" Michael Cooper, 2.5" shorter than 6´5.5" Ralf Möller...

At WWE primetime early nineties he even looked shorter than 6´3" Lex Luger compared to Bobby Heenan.

I think today he´s max 6´2.5" and peak max 6´3.25".
Ali Baba says on 25/Nov/13
Rob, Prowse has had health issue that account for his height loss. He's also lost a lot of weight and is quite a bit older than Ferrigno. Ferrigno seems to be in very good shape though, and moves like a very healthy man. I don't think he would have lost the 2 or so inches required for him to be his current height. While I agree it is possible it doesn't seem likely to me.
dick dastardly says on 25/Nov/13
rob, here a clear pic with holyfield and lewis for their 1999 fight: Click Here

I underline lewis is a legit 6'4.25"- 6'4.5". Holyfield is clearly 3-4 full inches shorter than lewis. Holyfield is 6ft-6'1". Now, you have seen both holyfield and ferrigno. Now watching the pic holyfield-lewis, do you really believe that ferrigno was JUST HALF INCH shorter than lewis at his peak(6'4")? I simply think this is NOT realistic. I repeat, i do NOT see lou ferrigno over 6'3" at his peak.
[Editor Rob: I've seen Dave Prowse lose inches in height, it is very possible Lou has lost at least an inch in his 50's]

JT says on 14/Nov/13
Click Here

thanks jt, very interesting.
hey rob, did you see the comparison pic posted by jt?
We can clearly see ferrigno is just a little bit taller than holyfield. Holyfield is listed here at 6'1.25"(even if i am pretty sure he is NOT over 6'1"), so it means that ferrigno is max 6'2" today, like alì baba said many times. Now Rob please you can watch everywhere the fight between holyfield and THE LEGIT 6'4.5" Lennox Lewis held in 1999. You can see that holyfield is clearly 3-4 inches shorter than lewis. So how ferrigno could be just half inch shorter than Lewis?? if so it means he shrunk 3-4 inches, this is IMPOSSIBLE. I am sorry rob, but this is another evidence that ferrigno peak was max max 6'3". Realistic estimation for ferrigno is a peak of 6'3". Today he is 6'1.5"-6'2".
[Editor Rob: ferrigno can look 6ft 2 for sure, but could still measure above it. He definitely looked at least an inch taller in person than evander.]
Mathew says on 15/Nov/13

I can´t see a heightloss for Hogan during the last 10 years, so if Hulk is the 6´3" as Robs listing says, then Lou is for sure not 6´3", more like 6´2"-6´2.5"

I also can not imagine that Lou could measure any taller than what he looked in AliBaba´s pic, regarding his posture.

Lorne says on 25/Oct/13
Seriously? 6ft3.5 morning height(at peak), with 6ft2.75in peak evening? You understand a guy his size will always lose a full inch morning to night, Right? If he was 6ft2.75 evening, he would be close to 6ft4 outta bed. But he wasn't. I can definently see him 192cm peak, but less than 6'3 is a joke. Even today, he would measure more than 6'2 flat in military posture.

Ali Baba says on 14/Oct/13
Prime Lou, I could't tell you because I didn't meet him until last year. Now he's about 6'2".

---

Agreed with about 6'2" today. Here's some more anecdotal evidence this is such "I remember the first time I saw Lou Ferrigno at Gold's Gym in Venice, CA. I am 6'2"-6'3" and he was shorter than me! I couldn't believe that I was taller than the two most famous bodybuilders of my childhood. Well, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou's height have been greatly exaggerated although they are plenty tall. People do slowly shrink as they age but, at this time, Lou is barely 6'1" or 6'2" and Arnold perhaps 5'11"-6'0"." Click Here

Er, just to point out the obvious but - have you not see Lou standing next to Eric Bana who is apparently 6'2 ? He is HUGE compared to him and certainly a good few inches taller.
I know photos can be deceiving but come on. If Lou is only 6'2" how tall does that make Eric...and before you answer that , check out Eric standing next to Jeremy Clarkson.

I think 6'2" is well off for a prime Lou. I would go with 6'4"
Ali Baba says on 13/Oct/13
Post the picture, Ethan. All other evidence points to about 6'2".

I was pictured at the Santa Rosa Toycon with Lou and I'm 5'9 so that would make Lou about 6'4.

Yeah, Ferrigno can look 6'2 range for sure, but I think he's a guy who could measure a bit taller than he looks, maybe 189-190cm. Note above, that Rob says he's a "weak" 6'3, but could still measure close, I know Rob said in person he walks about shorter than he is.

I watched pumping iron the other week. He was measured 6'4.5" in one of the deleted scenes but the time of day the measurement was taken wasn't specified. If he is 6'3" or less these days thats alot of height loss for a man his age. Yet he also took steroids which damage the spinal disks prematurely

Rob how tall do you think Lou's father looks at 5:28-5:43?
alan brisco says on 27/Jun/13
thanks baba, but the result is always the same. There are 3 full inches, also we can say 4 inches between you and ferrigno. Ferrigno looks in the 6'2" range with you. He looks in good shape, no hump and no serious back problems. So we want add 1 inch for his peak? ok, it means he was in the 6'3" range, i can deal with max 6'3.5", no more. 6'4"-6'4.5"-6'5" are clearly overestimated heights for ferrigno. i hope rob downgrade him at 6'3.5" (peak) for a realistic estimation.
Ali Baba says on 26/Jun/13
Alan, just to correct you I am 6'6". At least for now. Getting old sucks.

So rob, it is more than clear that lou peak was in the 6'3" range. 6'4.5" - 6'5" is clearly overestimated. You should downgrade him at 6'3" (peak). Today he is in the 6'2" range.
Johno says on 24/Jun/13
With ejel, he looks very similar in height to how he compared to 6'6 ali baba.

I believe in the top picture with rob, he looks taller because he has angled his body and is leaning on his back foot.

6'2 could be a good estimate for him and i agree with some of the commentators below - lou was probably in 6'3 range when younger although i don't see how he could of lost that much height since he is still in good shape.
alan brisco says on 24/Jun/13

I saw him aswell this weekend (as did 5ft 8 Ejel who sent his photo Here)

I think Lou can walk about and stand shorter than he is, he can look 6ft 2, but stretch up for a measurement and he'd be nearer 6ft 3. I hadn't seen him for 7 years and I don't think he looked much different apart from walking about shorter.
I tried to get a better double but I think he thought Jenny was just walking by him, not actually going on his other side!

this is why the idea cannot ever be mentioned outwith this site, especially to Sly or anybody from New York!]

Rob is there any possibility that you could get Sly in person.That 'd be very interesting.But of course with Sly's footwear and posture it's very difficult to estimate his actual height

Maybe you should go jacket as a stadiometer hehe
[Editor Rob: here is my ideal scenario for Celebheights 2040 - I'd meet somebody wearing an invention from the year 2025 - SlyShoes.

So, I know the height the celeb claims or can ask them their height, then simply voice activate my shoes which automatically adjust with lifts that make me whatever height I want...of course you can imagine if I met Sly and I told my shoes 6ft 1, he'd laugh and tell his shoes 6ft 2 etc...

this is why the idea cannot ever be mentioned outwith this site, especially to Sly or anybody from New York!]

5´9" Bill Bixby probably had around an inch footwear advantage,but even without that Lou struggles with 6´3"
Red 183 says on 18/Apr/13
Click Here Manny Perry listed at 6´2"

He was the stutndouble for Ferrigno and looked nearly the same height Click Here

Again, no chance for a 6´4" or 6´5" Ferrigno. He struggles with peak 6´3" like he did next to Michael Cooper, Ralf Möller, Richard Moll, John Larroquette, Bobby Heenan, Vince McMahon and many others.

Rob no disrespect, but how can you still see 6´4.5" regarding all this evidence?
Red 183 says on 17/Apr/13
Rob, today - do you really think he was 6´3"range when you met him and you wrote above? I think he must have looked similar to Rob Terry - what I really doubt.
[Editor Rob: guys like terry can walk about 6ft 3, he's definitely one guy who can stretch taller, like Lou I think he probably can look 6ft 2 range, but might stretch taller.

if he turns up at an event this year and doesn't cancel I will see how he looks nowadays 7 years further on]

Taken this weekend. Click Here

With his more relaxed posture I would say 6'2.5" at most. I'm thinking more 6'2", though. I've read that he's a super nice guy, but that was not my experience. Very standoffish and the only time he smiled was for the picture.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Ali Baba just checked your older post just now. I must say judging by that picture of yours, Lou is comfortably 4.5 - 5 inches below (He would be lucky to reach your eyeline) May me estimated Lou as low as 6'1.5 wasn't that bad a guess after all.

Let me see 6'6(ali baba) - 4.5 inches = 6'1.5 or 6'1 if the difference is 5 inches.

In the above picture with rob, he is comfortably below 6'2. His morning height should be above 6'2 but i believe he can get as low as 6'1.5 so his average height would be 6'1.75 as opposed to lowest height.

Rob 5'8 - 5'8.75
Ali baba 6'6 - (6.75???)
Lou Ferrigno 6'1.5 - 6'2.25 ie 6'1.75
alan brisco says on 7/Apr/13
and what about Jim Parrack? here, he is listed at 6´4"(193cm), many said he looks more like 6´3"(190cm), but anyway, he looks clearly taller than ferrigno. Comparison parrack-rob----ferrigno-rob.

chaske was shorter than brock lesnar though in a photo
alan brisco says on 4/Apr/13
did you see the pic between rob and Chaske Spencer?
C. Spencer's height is 6´1.5"(187cm). Compare with the above pic featuring rob and lou. C. Spencer looks a little bit taller than ferrigno. It is the same with Brandon Routh 6´2.5"(189cm)............
Red 183 says on 1/Apr/13
[Editor Rob: I don't think he was just 6ft 3]

That´s of course based on low height estimate like you give your own.
Talking about current height, I mean at least his current height is proved closer to 6´2" than 6´3".
jimmy says on 31/Mar/13
In the picture with Ali Baba he isn't barefoot though.Yet he doesn't look more than 6'2".And 6'3" Jason Segel has an inch on him.
Red 183 says on 31/Mar/13
Rob, what do you think about all the evidence showing Lou at around 6´3" peak?

Any chance for a downgrade here, I mean both listings seems to be to far off, or not?
[Editor Rob: the same guy who was almost 6ft 2 and met Arnie (used to be a photo on here) said he thought lou was 6ft 4 range at his peak when he met him, I don't think he was just 6ft 3]
Ali Baba says on 31/Mar/13
Biglou, I don't know Ferrigno's peak height but I do know he's about 6'2" now. Since I didn't meet him until just recently I won't even make a guess about his peak.
alan brisco says on 31/Mar/13
Now we have the pic between rob and Brandon Routh, who is a legit 6'2.5"(189cm).
Compare that pic with the above pic with lou. It is clear that brandon is taller than lou. It proves that lou is in the range 6'1" nowdays, like johno said. Prob.lou was as tall as brandon is today, so just like we repeated many times, lou peak was 6'2"-6'2.5"(188-189cm). "biglou", do not be ilarious, 3-4 inches difference between basketball shoes on and barefoot? please...

Billy Crystal is probably 5’6”ish. Click Here
If Ferrigno is a legit 6’4” or more, he should have a full head size on Crystal, which is not happening even if he fully straightens up.
alan brisco says on 27/Mar/13
again and again. Thanks roelc. In this picture everybody can see how ferrigno was shorter compared with 6'5" Michael Cooper & Kurt Rambis. He looks clearly shorter, so it means he was 6'2"-6'3". In this pic more 6'2". NO WAY HE WAS TALLER THAN 6'3". once and for all. PICS DON NOT LIE. Here any trolls, just considering what pics show.
Red 183 says on 27/Mar/13
I start to believe that Lou at his peak was 6´3.5" right out of bed and 6´2.75" at his lowest.
I don´t think any credible estimater here needs more proof to realize he was never 6´4" or 6´5" in real life.

Peak Lou looked nothing more than 6´3" next to 6´5.5" Ralf Möller, 6´4"range John Larroquette, 6´8" Richard Moll, 6´5" Michael Cooper, 6´8" Kurt Rambis...

All this was proven here time and time again, so imo: solid proof destroyed anything over 6´3.5"peak for Lou and in this case I talk about out of bed height.
RoelC says on 26/Mar/13
Here's a picture of Ferrigno with Michael Cooper & Kurt Rambis, which was also featured on the cover of the VHS-tape of Lou Ferrigno's Body Perfection.

In this pic Ferrigno doesn't even look 6'3".
JT says on 22/Mar/13
I stood next to Michael Cooper in the mid-1980s when I was 17 and around 6'3". Cooper was very thin in person and was a few inches taller than me, so 6'5" looks correct. Ferrigno does not look any more than 6'3" with Cooper.

Ferrigno (mid-20s) was in a weightlifting competition with 6'5" shotputter Brian Oldfield and looks noticeably shorter at around the 5:42 mark Click Here
johno says on 22/Mar/13
Arch ...... Chill out, put your feet up and go and smoke something - your to melodramatic. Your taking this height estimation way to seriously. We are all guessing here.

I am only visit this site once every couple of months. My guesses are my own. For lou, i did state in upper 6'1 range ie 6'1 - 6'1.75 evening time. Maybe putting 6'1.5 was a bit on the risky side so howabout, say - 6'1.75 evening time? sound better? He does look it in the above picture with a 5'8 man. 6'1.75 in the evening and 6'2.5 in the morning. Can some olease show me how he looks 6'3 in the above picture and i'll believe. He has slight lean in the above picture. The left aide of his head would be close to how tall he could potentially be and thats nowhere near 6'3 or above.

So when people say 6'3 or 6'4.5 in youth like you have i believe thats clearly trolling. Your height estimations are clearly over estimating.

lou 6'1.75 evening

Red 183 says on 19/Mar/13
Rob, what´s your opinion about the vid posted by RoelC?
Do you still see 6´4.5" for Lou next to 6´5" Cooper?

6´3" peak and about 6´2" today is my estimation
RoelC says on 14/Mar/13
Here's a short clip from Lou Ferrigno's fitness video "Lou Ferrigno's Body Perfection" Click Here That's from 1985, so Lou was only 33-34 years old here.
He's training with two NBA players: Michael Cooper & Kurt Rambis.
Michael Cooper was listed by the NBA at 6'5" Click Here
Kurt Rambis was listed by the NBA at 6'8" Click Here

From 0:50 til 1:23 Lou stands inbetween these two guys and it's pretty clear that Ferrigno is not as tall as 6'5" Michael Cooper, and the difference between Lou and 6'8" Kurt Rambis looks a lot like the difference between Lou & Richard Moll. When looking at this video I think Lou is closer to 6'3" peak, maybe 6'3.5", but 6'4" looks a bit generous let alone anything over 6'4".
Johno says on 13/Mar/13
The top of robs skull is in line with lou's right eye. It is about 1.2 inches above 1.25 inches above the tip of lou's nose which is usually 6 inches from the top of the skull but lou's skull is about an inch larger then robs ie at 10.5 inches in length thus making the tip of his nose about 6.4 inches below the top of his skull and in turn rob's head reaches just over 5 inches below lou's.

The above is based on lou's lean without the lean, he would be about 5.5 inches taller then rob ie 6'1.5 - give or take. Not 6'3 nor above 6'2. Obviously this based purely on the above picture, if rob believed lou seemed in the 6'3 range that day then thats entirely different story but that cannot be based on the above picture. The above picture does not even come close to a near 7 inch difference more rather 5.5 inches. Lou was taller back in the days but in the above picture, he is in the high 6'1 range.

He was shorter both hulk hogan and bill goldberg

Rob 5'8 - 5'8.8

dear Danimal 69.5inches, you have to accept that lou was 6'2"-6'3" at his peak. That picture with ali baba who stands 6'5"-6'6", shows very well that lou was not taller than 6'3". No way. You repeat he had 2/3 inches over paul dillet on mr olympia stage 1983, who was claimed 6'1"-6'1.5". it is easy to answer: paul dillet was not 6'1.5", but approx. 2 inches shorter. Anyway the above picture with ali baba is more than clear. You have to accept it. Lou was born on 1951, so being 6'2"-6'3" in the 70ies, made him a tall man, in fact for that reason he was chosen for "the incredible hulk", because the 5'11.5"-6' schwarzy was too short for playing "a human beast". I was/am a huge "incredible hulk" fan, i watched all the series, but it does not mean i have to overestimate my heroes, for their sizes or for something else...
James says on 27/Feb/13

Lou ferrigno was 6'-2" - 6'.3". No way he was taller than 6'.3". But 6'.3" is a very respectable height. Few people can go over 6'.3". (lennox lewis for example), but this is not for lou. (schwarzy was about 6ft tall, lou looked always taller). For too much time people believed schwarzy was 6'.2", for that reason people believed lou at 6'.4". but it is was not true. schwarzy was about 6ft, lou 6'.2" - 6'.3".
RP says on 9/Feb/13
Lou looks a true 6'4" with Kim....Kim looked exactly 6'4" with the 6'2.75" to 6'3" Rock. It's obvious Lou is another posture guy. Depending on how he's hold himself up....he can look anywhere from 6'2.5" to 6'4".

Dave, I never said he wasn't in great shape. I only have my one interaction with Ferrigno to go off of as to how he interacts with people. I don't doubt he can be a great guy and noted that others say he's great to talk to. And my problem was never with Ferrigno, it was with moRonster, who would rather make personal attacks instead of talk about the actual topic of this board. My apologies to Rob the editor, and the other posters here for letting this get so off topic.
Dave618 says on 29/Jan/13
Ali, Ronster, chill. Either way, whether Lou was 6'4" peak and is 6'3" now, or if he was 6'5" peak and 6'3" now, it's moot. The dude is still a marvelous physical speciman. He's put thousands of hours making his body into what it is, and he should be respected for it.

BUT he should even be more respected for doing the work he's done with charities and kids. Yeah, this is a site about height and I find it funny when celebs claim they are a height they surely are not but in the end we're not talking about who started the first world war, just a dude's height. I don't hear too many people who've met him say he's an ass, most say he's a down to earth cool dude.
Ali Baba says on 28/Jan/13
I think it's pretty obvious from the length of your response whose button was actually pushed. I'll let you continue to think whatever you want though.
Ronster says on 28/Jan/13
Ali Baba, i will just consider where it comes from when it comes to your comments towards me. See, i have got your number and guys just like you. What bothers you most and why you go out of your way to attempt to make people think guys like Lou are shorter than they are is simply because you are ordinary, you are common and you cannot stand it. You think standing beside an older and much trimmed down Lou at 60 and being a few inches taller in your lifts makes you somehow look cool or bigger than him. Guess what, height alone doesn't make you big, and his physique which is much less than in his prime still makes you look puny next to him. I at least do not have any such chip on my big shoulders, so you go on with your quest to somehow make yourself the man you could only wish you were by trying to put down others. As for your "I am here in butF%$#k Texas anytime" remark, LOL why would i waste time to go pick on you? My comment about chopping you down was to push your button and it worked! My arms are bigger and stronger than your legs, so go hit the gym put on about 30 lbs of muscle and maybe you'll make a great before picture! Then we can meet at Hogan's beach shop and after i drop the big leg on you maybe the Hulkster will take a photo with you LOL. P.S. He does appear at his shop regularly, and they even post times he will be there daily almost. I really get a kick out of someone who posts a picture of himself unshaven with his little pot belly hanging out calling someone else ignorant!!
Alex says on 27/Jan/13
@ Man, why you gotta be so rude and aggressive? You basicaly kept bashing the guy, calling him a fraud and now you're pissed he called you out on it? And no, guys comming here aren't (as a rule) sick,obsessive or jealous. It's just a fun site were people come to chat and spent their time. You should treat it as such and relax.

I have looked at this picture a few times, it is obvious if you look at Ali's posture and the way he is standing that he had lifts in those shoes to make himself 2 inches taller than he would be otherwise next to Lou. I was right the first time i looked at this, you purposly wore shoes that boosted you up to try and make Lou look shorter than he is, just because they are black shoes doesn't hide what anyone can see. All pictures of him with countless other people of known height show he is still 6'4" and was 6'5", only way i would ever believe you Ali is if you get one with him and stand barefoot next to him.

jbl is listed 6'6 in wrestling, in pro football he was listed 6'5 so the odds on him being a full inch taller are low especially looking at him next to randy orton in similiar footwear and i have met orton, @ 6'6 jbl would also be close to 6'8 in cowboys that he nearly always wears and he isn't that tall, animal of road warriors walked past me and he isn't 6'2, jon heidenreich whom i also met and looked ~6'6 towered over animal when they tagged, easily 5 inches taller, 2min mark Click Here

thats 2011, penn jillette (yes met him too :D) is in or around 6'6 and has just as much height on ferrigno as ali does in that photo, thats not a 6'4 man next to penn sorry ronster at 5min mark and again at 5mins 54secs Click Here lou is alot closer to adam corolla there in height (listed 187-88cm) than jillette

In the video with Isis those heels add minimum 3 inches, my lady has dozens of pairs and many just like those so I know which makes her then 7' with them on, there isn't any more than 5 inches difference between that and him coming up to Lou's chin if he had lifted his head up, and JBL is 6'6", and has the 6'2" animal by at least 4 inches with those runners on, so that makes Lou 6'4".

Ali Baba, I really believe strongly that you had lifts in those thick soled shoes you had on, or you are really 2 inches taller than you say because every picture of Lou out there like this one shows he is clearly 6'4" still if not a bit more.
Ali Baba says on 6/Jan/13
Ronster, I don't doubt that there are countless people who have great stories about meeting Ferrigno. All I have to go by is my 5 minute interaction, which really tarnished his image with my daughter who is not old enough to be familiar with his work before King of Queens.
Ronster says on 4/Jan/13
Ali Baba, too bad you thought he was a jerk. Everyone else i have ever read anything from who met him has said he is an awesome person!

why are you people always underestimating celebrities heights?
Don't listen to the bashers like Red, this site was designed for people who are hell bent to diminish or try to somehow stain the legend of true big men out of some warped jealousy or something i cannot even begin to understand. They all use the exact same baseless arguments, and if you take time to notice are always looking at these celebs today when they are 5-60 years old or more and say if they are and inch or two less than before, (and in the case of Lou and others like Hogan have medical records and surgeries to prove the height loss) they will claim they never were as tall as they say. Lou was 6'5" or very close, he very well is down an inch due to his hips and bow legged stance now without a doubt, just like Hulk Hogan was billed as tall as 6'9" regularly and was really 6'7" before loosing height, has had numerous sugeries removing bone from his joints and spine lowering him by 2-3 inches with x rays and the scars to prove it all including numerous pictures showing he was really that tall, but still you will always have these guys arguing they were never that tall using select pictures of them in poor posture etc, there is no reasoning with anyone like these guys as they are not interested in any truth, they just want to cast stones at these great men to somehow feel better or in some cases make thenmselves feel bigger than they are i think??? The webpage admin puts ever one of their heights lower than they really are but that is to be safe for the most part, so get used to it LOL.
Ali Baba says on 2/Jan/13
Actually I was the first person to even approach him that morning. Maybe he's not a morning person. I don't know, but even my daughter thought he was a jerk. Doesn't really matter as I probably won't be having a beer with him any time soon.
Mammal X says on 1/Jan/13
I met Lou, briefly, a few years ago at the Arnold Classic (bodybuilding show, Columbus Ohio). Lou had a booth, photos. I was not surprised to find his height was a little less than the 'official' 6'4" - he was much closer to 6'2". Maybe in his prime he was 6'3"...POSSIBLY 6'4". Still impressively built, at nearly 60. Oh, and I found him to be friendly and warm. Some on this site called him standoffish. Maybe Lou had posed for photos with a hundred other people that day; maybe his wife just called to tell him she just wrecked the car...who knows? Try to have a little perspective, and not judge someone based on exactly TWENTY SECONDS of interaction.
Mathew says on 26/Dec/12
Lou is looking 6'2" today. Maybe 6'2.5", but that's the most.
