how tall is his American twin Reince Priebus?

Looks around 5'8" nowadays maybe 5'8.5" peak but he's in that low average range. Manages to mask it though with his dangerous charm.

Ole Nige is 5'8

@Rory Most certainly he would have been. I'd say 5'9"-5'9.25" peak, 5'8.25-5'8.5" today. Was average height for his generation.
Rory said on 25/Feb/17
This guy has had many injuries, planes crashes,car crashes he's a smoker and drinker and now in his 50s it's almost a certainty he's lost substantial height. I wonder if a 30 year old Farage could have actually been near 5'9 ?

@Honest Slovene

Well are you certain that Rand Paul is a full 5'7"? Whether he is or not I am not convinced that there is a full 2 inches difference between them both. Also I don't think Donald trump is the best yardstick for judging people's heights due to his awful posture. I have seen too many pictures of Farage looking smaller than average for a man to believe he is a 5'8.5" - 5'9" range guy, I have also seen him look too similar in height to a number of women before to believe this is a probability. I think a lot of people over estimate this guys height. I could be persuaded into buying a flat 5'8" for him but that is the best he can be given for me.

@Asa Rand Paul is 5'7" and Farage does really look about 5'9" in the picture next to him. I know he has struck a nerve with a lot of people but lets be real about this:

Also there is a picture with him next to Trump. Trump is at least 6'0.5" (very likely close to 6'1") and he looks to be about 5'8.5" next to him.

I think anything 5'8.25"-5'9" for him is fair. I'd personally would go with 5'8.5" and even the full 5'9" wouldn't suprise me at all. Looks like a guy near average (within 1.5 inches), definitely not short.

@Asa

Nigel Farage will love you if he reads your post.
Nik said on 25/Dec/16
I think if anything Rob has over quoted Nigel Farage. I think the original quote of a flat 5'8" is nearer the truth and he may or may not be slightly under that. No way is he 5'9" or even close to it.
Asa said on 24/Dec/16
He could easily be taller. In pictures where he stands next to Rand Paul who is listed at 5'8", he appears maybe 2 inches taller. I'd say around 5'10" or Rand Paul is lying and is shorter than he claims.
Will 1.77 said on 21/Dec/16
Wow. I'm surprised to see him listed as low as 173 cm! He can look 5' 9" a lot - with David Cameron, Nick Clegg, Joey Essex, Donald Trump, etc...

How sure are you on this one, Rob?

@ Phil - Thank you very much!
(I am far from sensible! Maybe a job in politics would suit me!)

@ Sandy Cowell

You are welcome.
I think you are a sensible woman.
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Dec/16
@ Nik - I haven't actually heard it either! I see pictures of it all over the newspapers though and that's more than I can take first thing in the morning, believe me!
I think if I did witness it on the TV, I'd probably press the 'mute' button!
Greg said on 2/Dec/16
Nigel is a six footer - that's why he can pull off the covert coat with such aplomb. A lean, long limbed, faintly aristocratic legend.
Nik said on 2/Dec/16
@Sandy Cowell

No I am not sure I have heard it to be honest and I would be interested to hear it.

@heelshealheight

How tall do you think Farage is then ? Would you have him as low as 170 cm ?
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Dec/16
@ Nik - and what about his laugh? Have you ever seen anything like it in your life? If I have, then I have little recollection!
Nik said on 30/Nov/16
Yeah I agee, every time I see this guy his mouth is wide open. Plus he may or may not scrape 5'9" with shoes on. I doubt he is as tall as Rob.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Nov/16
@ Phil - Hi! Your comment regarding Farage's 'big frog mouth', from the 14th November, afforded me a grand first-thing-in-the-morning laugh! Thanks!
Aza said on 29/Nov/16
The Grinch is 5'8 at his most erected.
Roger said on 25/Nov/16
174cm.

Removing any form of camera advantage for either Farage or Juncker, both appear to be roughly the same height. Junker is no more than 5ft7. Farage is noticeably shorter than (the weak 5ft9) Panos Kammenos (Greek Minister of National Defence and leader of a far-right Greek nationalist party). Farage used to meet up with loads of those far-right Greek nationalists during the period 2002-2014. In the photo below, Kammenos is the 'plump' guy in the back: Click Here

Well unless both Farage and Trump are stood up straight it is difficult to tell with any great certainty the difference in height between the two. Also are they both level in terms of footwear ? Posture also becomes a factor perhaps for both of them. At times Nigel Farage has lldefinitely looked over 5'8 to me but at other times in the past he has looked pretty modest to me and clearly under 5'8". I would fiind it very unsurprising if he is no more than a flat 5'8. I stick to believing he is 5'7.5" - 5'8" and if I had to say I would guess he is on the lower end of that range but I am not sure.
Phil said on 14/Nov/16
i can't stand this guy. i am not an EU fan, but he is such an EU hater with a big frog mouth. he is 5 foot 8.
he is not taller than rob.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Nov/16
Looks taller than 5'8 flat anyway.
Sarah said on 14/Nov/16
5'8.5"-5'9" Range with Trump.

Nik said on 14/Nov/16
Maybe I am wrong but I think Farage is 5'7.5" and Trump is 5'11.5".
Nik said on 14/Nov/16

patron said on 13/Nov/16
a little taller than that, perhaps 5'8.75
Nik said on 13/Nov/16
I think he is 5'8" at most. I Could see 5'7"
DougQuaidHauser said on 13/Nov/16
Looks 3 inches max shorter than Donald Trump today. Definitely taller than 5ft 8.5
TJE said on 13/Nov/16
He does look roughly 4 inches shorter than Trump
Chaz said on 13/Nov/16
I think he's taller than 5'8''Click Here my Son met him in Margate and he's 5'11'' he said he was not short,or tall about 5'9''.
miko said on 13/Nov/16
Maybe thinking about it he could have lost a bit of height. Maybe 5'8 flat today and closer to 5'9 in his youth, it was around 6/7 years ago I saw him.
HonestSlovene said on 12/Nov/16
yeah I though he might be in the upper short range (5'7-5'9).
Rory said on 12/Nov/16
I think he's probably lost height. He's in his fifties and has been involved in a plane crash, as well being a heavy drinker and smoker. Might well have been 5'8.5 in his 20s.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Nov/16
Yes, surprisingly not tall, noticed that when I saw him with Trump. Another guy with a "tall face", you'd expect 6ft-6'2.
Samuel said on 12/Nov/16
He is listed as 5'10 on some websites. I don't know why. I think 5'8 is a good estimate.

Editor Rob: actually I watched a few videos just now and I can see how he looks a solid 5ft 8, even a bit taller at times.
Aza said on 12/Nov/16
Yeah he looks this height.
guk said on 11/Nov/16
I've met Paul Nutall who is about 2 inches taller than Farage and he was about my height (179cm) if not a little shorter. So Farage is max 5ft 8.5 most likely your 5ft 8 is right.
Nik said on 11/Nov/16
I think he could be a bit lower. 5'7.5-5'7.75. Modest sized man or a tall short.
miko said on 11/Nov/16
What a legend this man is, I've had the privilege of talking to him albeit briefly and he looked between 5'8.5 and 5'9 to me. 5'8 flat might be a tad low.
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Nov/16
That seems pretty bang on, I would say!
His little brother went to the same school as I did and was in my friend Jon's class. There was often only one class to a year (at the most two - a 'double intake') and we had to take exams after every term. The results would be emblazoned all over the classroom wall and the top 5 of each form would be on a notice board on the entrance to the school!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/16
Wow...didn't think he was that low
Rory said on 11/Nov/16
Uncle Nigel lol. I'd have thought 5'8.5 was possible, but maybe just a solid 5'8.
