@Luigi: I think Paul Dillet was somewhere between 6ft1-2 range, similar to Arnold. He was listed as both and could look either. But very tall for a professional bodybuilder nonetheless.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jun/16
I'm spotting comments below by people who think this guy was 6'2 range PEAK. Astonishingly ignorant!!
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jun/16
Rob , are you sure on 6'4 flat peak? I saw him in Pumping Iron in 1977 and really thought he had a solid 3 inches on Arnie and looked every bit of 6'4.5. If that's 6'4 flat Arnie looks sub 6'1 there! Click Here I can't see what brought on the downgrade but ongoing pressure from people claiming he was shorter!
Editor Rob: 6ft 4 or 4.5 has always seemed arguable, either figure I think you could make a case for.
Luigi said on 1/Jun/16
at the age of 16 I met bodybuilder Paul Dillet who was billed as 6'2'', and I do believe he was a legit 6'2'' dude, I mean the dude was larger than life. I never met Lou Ferrigno but judging by that pic that someone posted of Lou Ferrigno with Paul Dillet, I can see he was about 6'4'' then, in the early 90s, maybe Lou is shorter now due to age (6'3'') but he was a legit 6'4'' bodybuilder, I mean he towered over Arnold, who was at least 6'1'' in 1975, Lou looked at least 3'' taller
ps. if you look at pics of Paul Dillet competing with other bodybuilders of his time, you can see how Paul Dillet totally towers over everyone, he was a legit 6'2'' bodybuilder. Bodybuilder Kevin Levrone stated that Lou Ferrigno was 6'6'' but I highly doubt that
berta said on 1/Jun/16
did ferrigno look 191 in 2013 ore are the chanses of 189 bigger? Think he is same height as the rock these Days.
Editor Rob: I think if you measured him he'd have been closer to 190cm range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/16
186-186.5cm was Arnold's low
berta said on 10/May/16
Dmeyer im with you on that. The chanses of Arnold being 186 after training session is very strong. Then again the Days he didnt train wich is like 1 day out of 20 :P he was probably a weak 187. Arnold feels lika a guy who can get 1 extra cm when he is measured. Ferrigno i guess could look 192,5 -194. These Days, maybe 189-190 ?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/16
I don/t think he dropped below 186.5cm in prime.
Dmeyer said on 4/May/16
Rob is 185,5cm solid 6ft 1 dinner time for Arnold peak possible waking at 6ft 2 , 6ft 1,5 10am 6ft 1,25 noon And 6ft 1 after weight lifting or by tea time a 189/186,5cm b 188,5/186cm c 188/185,5cm , à guy like arnie over 6ft And weight training defenetly droped 2,5cm during the day
Editor Rob: 186cm teatime is very possible for him in the 70's.
pedro builder said on 26/Apr/16
I saw Lou in '76 at a Bodybuilding seminar in NJ. It was just before he did the Hulk. he was in my estimate 6'4 1/2" and about 300# as he was not competing. Oh I met Arnold his peak height was 6'1" nothing more that was '79. I was 5'11" at the time he was 2" taller then me.
Lenny said on 21/Apr/16
6 3 on the nose looks about right next to weak 6 4 Jason Segel in 2009 Click Here . At 64 it's entirely plausible he's lost an inch or so since his peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/16
Rob, how likely is 194cm peak?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/16
If Paul Dillet was indeed 6ft1-2 (believable since he was listed at both and was almost always the tallest on stage), Ferrigno looks a strong 6ft3/weak 6ft4 there. I heard Dorian Yates was measured 5ft9½. Gunter is a 6ft1 range guy also. Ferrigno doesn't look under 6ft3 in any of those photos Danimal posted.
THE REAL ANNONYMOUS said on 12/Apr/16
I met Lou in the mid 80's and 6'4 was right on for back then.
I'm 6'2 and my brother figured he had a couple of inches on me.
Anybody claiming lower either never met him back then or just pushing their own snake oil😉

6'4" peak is fine to me I guess, but he's not a legit 6'3" today.
richie said on 5/Apr/16
Ferrigno was 6'3.5" peak, check out The Cage where he starred alongside Reb Brown who was a legit 6'4" and Brown was slightly taller than Ferrigno in all scenes...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Mar/16
Today he probably clears 6ft2 but might be fraction shy of 6ft3. Peak not under 6ft4, sorry
NBAer said on 19/Mar/16
He's leaning on both pics with Rob,so it's hard to tell...I'd say eye-level and top-of-head wise looks 186,MAYBE 187 range,but up straight i can imagine him nearer 188,with a possibility of measuring 189 under the stadiometer...As for peak, i can't say for sure as i was unborn then and haven't really been a fan of him ever,but near 6'4 like 191-192 range back in 70's is a very likely estimate IMO.
Ethan said on 9/Mar/16
I met Lou Ferrigno in person back in 2013 and he was a big man at about 6'5". He's probably 6'4" barefoot and 6'5" with shoes. I'm 5'9" barefoot and 5'10" in my shoes so that makes him about 7 inches taller than me.
Harpy said on 14/Feb/16
Since he was 3 to 3.5 inches taller than Arnold who was 5' 11.5'' in his peak, I believe Lou was 6' 2.5''- 6' 3'' in his peak. He could be down to 6' 1''-6' 2'' these days. But at the same time his spiky hair on the forehead are no less than 2'' tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Feb/16
Lou was 6ft4 minimum in the 70's-80's and could pass for 6ft5 at times.

Rob, did he ever claim 6ft5?
Harold said on 9/Feb/16
Lou, peak: six foot two and change.

Given he's always had three or four inches on Arnie:

Arnie: five foot ten and change.

Mickey said on 30/Dec/15
I met Lou at a Japanese restaurant in 1979. We had to take off our shoes to eat there. I was 6-4 & he was exactly my height. I've lost 1 inch over time & I would assume Lou has as well. He was built like a monster which made him look a few inches bigger.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/15
189-190cm today could be it but no less. Up straight he can still top Schwarzenegger by about 3in. I doubt Arnold is just 5ft11 at least not yet.


Rob, do you think Mike O'Hearn is a true 6ft3 guy or a bit less?
Editor Rob: he can look near his claim
bobby3342 said on 28/Oct/15
somethings wrong here rob? Maybe my face is different but 5 feet 8 inches hits 1 inch under my lip, and my low is 6'4(even hit 6"3 7/8 once) I would guess him at 6 '2 barefoot im sorry but I don't think he is 6 '3 today maybe in shoes?

The guy is 7 feet barefoot and Lou comes up to his mouth, he has Lou by no more than 9 inches then max, that means Lou is 6'3" in that picture. He was 6'5" or.just under, he had his hips replaced and they removed bone to insert the new hips which made him over an inch shorter. Come in folks, this stuff is really simple, a 4 year old could out it together.

....Robin Lopez is listed at 7ft. He has a twin brother named Brook Lopez, who also plays in the NBA. Brook Lopez was measured at 6'11.25" barefoot during the 2008 NBA pre-draft camp. My guess is, Robin Lopez is the exact same height.

They do look the same height. Brook was measured at ~ age 20 so they may have grown a bit. Brook looks taller than Kevin Garnett, who usually looks a strong 6'11" in most pics Click Here With the small camera tilt corrected, I could see Lopez having a good 9 inches on Lou. Click Here

"Peak height was 6ft 4¼in (194cm)"

Absolutely no less than that and quite possibly the full 6ft4½. He for sure woke up in the 6ft5 range.



Dream on, clearly shorter than 6´4" John Larroquette, towered by 6´5" Michael Cooper and 6´5.5" Ralf Möller.
Barely taller than his 6´2" stuntdouble Manny Perry...

lou wason celebrity apprentice 3 yrs ago and stood next to penn jillette who is about 6 ft 7 and had a couple inches on him so he might have shrunk with both knee replacements and hip as well.
bobm said on 9/Mar/15
lou is about 6' 4 ish today when he played the hulk they shot him up close to make like he was really really big which he was from certain angles so he looks humoungous and everyone else a little smaller it happens a lot in movies and tv Richard kiel was cast as the hulk at 7 ft 2 0r 3 but he wasn't muscular enogh so they needed a sizable person for the role lou was perfect he had the bulk but not the height even though he was tall for a bodybuilder he wasn t what u would call hulk height like the comicbook but the manage to pull it off back then when there was no cgi and special effects like today. still in great shape he is in at 60 plus
Icehole73 said on 9/Feb/15
Just to tip my hat off to Lou. He looked better painted green than Bautista did in Guardians of the Galaxy. Thats almost 40 years earlier and Lou still looks better. This is not to knock Bautista but to remember the days when they actually used these people and giants to act instead of this CGI crap! I have yet to see a scarier BigFoot than Andre the Giant!
Darth Nihilus said on 24/Jan/15
I read his height at 6'5" in most of his websites and all I can say is that it is really ridiculous. A guy with a legit 6'5" appears almost gigantic and Ferrigno didn't look very tall at all also in his younger days. Let alone his funny 6'4" claiming on Twitter. Lou might be on the tall side but he is still above average but not really tall. So when Lou is standing next to Rob on this pic, it gives a 6'2" impression for Lou. He might be almost 6'3" in his younger days.

When Lou Ferrigno arrived on the bodybuilding scene and progressed up the bodybuilding ladder in the 1970's, Joe Weider, the head of Ferrigno's bodybuilding federation had a problem: Weider had been selling Schwarzenegger as a six foot two guy. Schwarzenegger had been only too happy to smile and accept this as 'fact.' Yet, when Schwarzenegger stood next to Ferrigno, who actually was six two or three, he was dwarfed and visibly not what he pretended the was. So Weider concocted the six foot five billed height lie for Ferrigno in order to perpetuate the six foot two lie for Schwarzenegger. Follow the money.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 2/Dec/14
6´4" is out of question if you watch Lou next to 6´8" Richard Moll, 6´5" Michael Cooper, 6´8" Kurt Rambis, 6´5.5" Ralf Möller, 6´2" Stuntdouble, 6´4" John Larroquette ...

To MUCH ecidence sorry.

Lou was 6´3" prime, maybe a shade taller that´s it.

Today next to Rob and AliBaba he looks solid 6´2" maybe 6´2.5".

Gunter Schlierkamp was listed 6ft1 and 6ft2 (I think I also read 6ft1½ somewhere). Looking at contest pics, I'd have guessed he was either one of those since he was usually the tallest guy on stage. At point he was even compared to Arnold because of his height!

Ferrgino was no less than a strong 6ft4 in his bodybuilding days. He cleared Arnold by a solid 3in...and don't start with the "Arnold wasn't even 6ft peak" crap again!

I've watched & own every episode of The Incredible Hulk tv series. It is very clear from these episodes that at most Lou's peak height was no more than 6'3".
Keep in mind that because of Lou's character, he was always barefoot or wearing green sandals, which gave the appearance of being barefoot. There's an episode where Lou plays a bodybuilder, it's called King Of The Beach. In this episode there's many shots of Ferrigno & Bixby standing next to each other and clearly Lou isn't 6'4". Remember this is Lou in his prime and if you look carefully he even appears to be wearing boots----

Why are people so blinded by billed heights? Louie has clearly never been anywhere near 6'4 or 6'5! There's so much proof of this-----------

totally agree with you rn, with you HeightcrazyRed6ft, with you jc610.
I always said lou peak barefoot was max 6'2.50"-6'2.75"(189-190cm). Anyway anything over 6'3" was a pure fake. But fanboys don't accept it. Rob should update lou and arnold page, but.....................................
KROC said on 11/Nov/14
I don't doubt that Lou was a legit 6'4 in his prime. I talked to a powerlifter/bodybuilder who worked out with many notables such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Reg Park, Lou Ferrigno, and even Ralf Moeller. This guy is tall mind you, at least 6'3, so he has a good perspective. According to him Arnie was a legit 6'1. Reg Park was close but slightly shorter, maybe 6'05? Lou was his exact words "Definitely 6'4, maybe even a little bit over" Ralf Moeller was at least an inch taller then Lou, so 196/197 sounds good for him. You can take it with a grain of salt though, I'm sure most you will.

Why are people so blinded by billed heights? Louie has clearly never been anywhere near 6'4 or 6'5! There's so much proof of this, I'm really surprised that no one has noticed. But before I get into this, I'd first like to say that not too long ago I was reading a very old article about the Hulk series, like from when the show was first on the air. And this article said that Lou was 6 feet 2 inches tall. That was actually close to my guess about his height. I've always believed him to be either 6'2 o 3. Therefore, my guess is that he's always been at least 6'2 1/2". And the reason I believe this is because I have seen some very
heavy evidence. For instance, in the season 2 Hulk episode "Escape From Los Santos", the actor who played the sheriff in that episode was 6 feet tall, and the scene where he stood in front of the Hulk, Lou was clearly only about 2 or 3 inches taller. Also in 1989, Lou did a movie with Reb Brown called Cage. Several scenes in the film when he stood next to Reb clearly showed that Reb was slightly taller than Lou, and Reb is 6'3! If Louie really is or had ever been 6'4 or 5, then he should have been taller than Reb, but he wasn't! This clearly proves that Louie has never been any bigger than at least 6'2.5.

It's very true that people shrink and lose their posture gradually over time like Lou did, my bad was 6'2 ft (188) in his prime but he's 6 ft and half.

Maybe Rob is right about Lars's photo. But Rob look at this one Click Here
This guy is supposed to be 0.5' shorter than Lou but he looks a bit taller.
Jack Coleman: 6'2.5" - 6'3"
Lou : 6'2" - 6'2.5".
He looks shorter than that next to Ali but he has worse posture.
[Editor Rob: Lou is deceptive in that he can walk about smaller...I can believe some will see him 6ft 2, but ask him to stand at his tallest and he may still measure near enough 6ft 3.]

Maybe Lars LOOKS 195 cm next to Rob, but he's not a hair taller than his 192 cm listing..
Icehole73 said on 13/Aug/14
I believe that Lou is 6' 3" now which makes that guy at least 6'6". He's towering neck and shoulders over Rob with his head tilted down. Rob comes up to about half way up Lou's nose. Unless your blind, either the guy is standing on something or Rob is crouching down which I doubt.
[Editor Rob:
there really isn't much between them in person...

The photos are taken with different lenses and the Lars one maximises his height.

It's like the photo I posted of Lars with his 195cm acting friend Here...the angle might add a bit of height, they should be 1.5 inches apart yet there are at least 3 inches...

My Lars photo is also taken quite close and with a wide angle, the effect is similar to This photo. I am standing the same as I did with Lars, but the perspective is knocking height from me and add it to Jenny (who is standing 192cm the same as Lars).

Please rob, look at this,

rob with Lars Mikkelsen:Click Here
rob, mikkelsen is a legit 6'3.5"(192cm). he looks at least 2 inches taller than ferrigno!!!once again we have the proof, lou was 6'2.5"-6'2.75"(189-190cm) at his peak. Not surprised if he was max 6'2" barefoot! Nowdays he struggles with 6'1.25"-6'1.5"(186-187cm). The comparison mikkelsen-ferrigno is incredible! (also mikkelsen is quite old). Rob, how can you say ferrigno was taller than mikkelsen??!!! Rob, this 6'4" peak for ferrigno is a terrible lie. You should update lou's profile.
[Editor Rob: they are actually very close in height in person...

But remember Lou's is a landscape photo with no distortion.

The other (Lars) has a photographer with a wide angle and close up shot that is slightly distorting his head size and can add some height - I asked for that pose to maximise the difference.

Take a look at this chap with Lars Here. You can also see thumbs with Gwendoline Christine (I watched him greet her for that pic), Nicholas Rowe (he was right beside me in queue for that one) and Sonita Henry (again beside me in queue).

The Exorcist said on 17/Jun/14
What you have to take into consideration with Lou, is that he always has a relaxed posture in most of his photos. He does look 6'2" - 6'2.5" range in the top photo with Rob and Jenny, but that's because he isn't standing straight.

Could he stretch up to 6'3" on a stadiometer? I believe he could. But I do think he would be more likely to measure under it (6'3") than over it. He's either 6'3" or 6'2.75".

they look very similar, lou is just a little bit taller than 6'1" paul dillet. Furthermore you have to consider that Dillet has very short hair, almost bald, while lou has his hair up. Lou looks 6'2" or a shadow taller.

i repeat once again: lou ferrigno peak was 6'2.5"-6'2.75" (189-190cm).

6'4"-6'5" totally overestimated, out of real, fantasy.

So you add height for her heels but don't take into account my 1.25" or so addition for shoes? Makes sense. Yes, in shoes I am around 6'7" depending in the shoes. As I've said before, anyone in Texas is welcome to meet with me if they are doubtful of my height (and no I won't travel across the entire country to meet with someone. I only have so much time and money to spend on trivial things). I don't have a stadiometer. Nor do most people. Rob is a bit unusual in that regard. I know how tall I am. I was in the military for 10 1/2 years. I was measured every six months or so before PT tests and weigh ins.
The Exorcist said on 3/May/14
@Vegas

"Exorcist i would be interested how tall you think the chap on the left is"

It's hard to say. His posture is a lot better than Lou's and he's closer to the camera. As a guess I would say he's pretty similar to Lou? 6'3" range, perhaps? Not really an ideal pic for judging height.

The next part of your post is even more complex...as you've got the two photos side-by-side. The problem with this is that Velvet Sky on the right is standing at the same height as herself on the left...even though she is wearing bigger heels. So that's not how Ali Baba would like stood next to the two guys on the left picture.

The best clue we have to determine Ali's height from this photograph is Velvet Sky herself. She seems to be listed most frequently at 5'5". So lets just say, as she hasn't be reliably measured by stadiometer for us all to see, that her 5'5" listing is legit. So lets guess how big her heels are in the picture with Ali Baba, shall we? How about 4"? That puts her at 5'9". How about 5"? That puts her at 5'10". Ali looks to be standing, roughly, about 10" taller than her. That would make him 6'7" if her heels are 4", or 6'8" if her heels are 5". But then again, she may not be her listed height of 5'5". She may be 5'4"...and with the 4" heel she would be 5'8"...making Ali Baba 6'6" as he is 10" taller than her. But what if she's 5'4" and her heels are 5"? That would put her back up to 5'9" again making Ali Baba 6'7". But what if her real height is even lower than 5'4", like 5'3", or 5'3.5". See what I mean? So that's how complex it is! Both Ali and Velvet remain unmeasured to us users here. Add an unknown length of heels to the equation and it becomes a farce.

@Ali Baba: The only way you're going to truly convince everyone that you are 6'6", is by proving it on a stadiometer.

Lou is still no shorter than 6'2" and could still be as tall as 6'2.5". And yes he was still barely under 60 years old, but only by a few days. I met him at the end of October 2012 and he turned 60 on November 9th of that year. Either way that doesn't really matter. I doubt he would be any shorter now than then.

Vegas says on 21/Apr/14 to be fair ali met lou when he was over 60 so nobody is talking about peak lou with ali. lou doesn't look 6'3 in either of those photos.

no vegas, lou was 59 when he met alì baba. And yes i repeat he struggles with 6'2" with alì baba, also with rob he is clearly under 6'3". Just watch rob comparison pics with full 6'3" kevin sorbo or Gwendoline Christie. Ferrigno looks clearly shorter than both, sorbo and Christie. So i think lou is 6'1.5" nowdays or a very very weak 6'2". It means peak max was 6'3". Also rob has just an inch difference between peak and current height for lou.......it is all clear

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.

to be fair ali met lou when he was over 60 so nobody is talking about peak lou with ali. lou looked the same height on celebrity apprentice with penn jillette who i met in person and penn isn't over 6'6 in person.

lou doesn't look 6'3 in either of those photos with rob but like with ali he isn't standing fully straight (ali thought 6'2.5 in person remember).
rockfellas said on 21/Apr/14
why alì baba should claim a shorter height for himself? do you realize it is totally out of sense? in general people claim overestimated heights not underestimated heights!!! you say he looks taller than 6'6" in the pic with ferrigno because you do not accept the 4 full inches difference beetwen the two!!! so you hope alì is at least 6'7" so ferrigno can look taller!! ahahh this is funny and sad at the same time. Accept the reality: lou struggles with 6'2" nowdays, it means he was max 6'3" at his peak. Later, hope alì can add or show further infos.

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.

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

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.

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.

@Ronster

no its not a full 2 inches more like 1.4-1.6 area
Ronster said 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 said 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".

I am seeing the usual, people suddenly trying to lower Mayhew's or others heights, so transparent LOL.
Ali Baba said 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".
avi said on 18/Jan/14
@JT

What are you talking??
Ali baba looks about same as Rodman. Rodman is a 6'6 guy

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.

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 said 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.

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

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.

@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

Ali Baba said 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.
mId said 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 said 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 said 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.
MetalKid said on 25/Dec/13
I bet all of the people trying to lower Arnold and Lou's height are insecure, 5'4" men.
mId said on 22/Dec/13
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 said 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.
Vibram said 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 said on 18/Dec/13
Ferigno 6'4 flat makes Arnie 6'1 flat peak
Mathew said 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 said on 17/Dec/13

Edlt2882 said 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 said 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 said 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. :)
Ali Baba said 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 said 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]

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 said on 15/Nov/13

Lorne said 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.

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 said on 13/Oct/13

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.
[Editor Rob: he does...I'm sure he can look not over 6ft 2 to many guys who have better posture than him.]

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 said 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 said on 26/Jun/13

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 said 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.

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

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

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...

You are all just plain rediculous, in the pics with the two basketball players they have on their basketball shoes and Lou is barefoot!! Stop trying to pass off these BS comparisons.

You obviously didn't watch the video I posted, so here it is again:

If you watch 3:44 and onwards you clearly see Lou isn't barefoot! And if you're going to call other people ridiculous, at least learn how to spell it correctly!

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.

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.

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".

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

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.

rob 5'8
lou 6'1.75 evening
