Actually, I just rewatched WM VII and Regis was closer to 2" shorter than Gene. So, he was definitely no more than 5'6" flat and Gene was close to 5'8".

At Wrestlemania VII, he was about 1" shorter than ~5'7.5" Mean Gene. I'd guess 5'6/5'6.5" peak.

5'6" No way in heck. He makes Kelly Ripa look normal-sized. My money's on 5'1" to 5'3".

I stood next to him. I am 5'5.5, he was shorter than me. 5.4 or shorter, shoe heel taken into factor

Sorry just noticed Rob that you have do him at 5 ft 5 and 5 ft 6 peak, I thought you had him at 5 ft 6 now. Excellent estimates, and yes there is a possibility he is 5'4.5" barefoot at some point in the day.

He's 5'6" He's the same height as Davis Spade. (5'6") So, 5'5"? No. 5'6" 98 inches shorter than Letterman..Refis was 5'7" at peak and now 5'6" There's some idiots on this page. 5'4" pleeeeease.

Numerous 5'5"-5'6" guests including Justin Bieber have been on his show and he looked shorter than them all. Flat 5'4" too low, but 5'4.5"-5'5" is actually respectable, at least his current height. 5 ft 7 is certainly a massive joke for now, 5 ft 6 is definitely pushing it too. i think 5 ft 5 is nearer what he is and 5 ft 6 peak.

I think that Regis is more 5'4"-5'4.5 range. A couple of pics with David Letterman:

I know I\'m right. said on 12/Sep/12
Regis was 5'7" Probably shorter now. But, not 5'5" I saw his. And he doesn't look 5'5" Like Richard Dreyfuss, or Bob Balaban. 5'5" maybe 5'6" now.

Regis is cool. 5'6" was really peak. He is old now. Lost at least an inch. Yeah big personality, nice guy and he can always stand on his wallet. The guy is more loaded than some Hollywoods superstars and he deserves it.

Saw him setting up for his show in New York years ago and he's a tiny little guy. 5'5" MAX, probably smaller. Booming voice that carries though and strong personality. He was like a little Napoleon.
leonari said on 1/Sep/07
never 5'6"-
Ron Burns said on 9/May/07
Well, I stood and spoke with him after one of his tv shows - he was slightly shorter than I am - I'm 5-8. So I think 5-6 is probabaly right on - this was 15
years ago. I think he was 5-7 then - now he's over 70 so 5-6 is right.

I know people shrink....I, myself was once 5'9" and now, at age 58, and I don't have osteoporosis, am down to just a hair over 5'6". I remember Kelly Ripa on AMC and she was the shortest one on the show. (She is supposedly 5'2".) She and Mark (her husband) seemed to be almost the same height. I'd bet Regis is only maybe 5'3" or 5'4" at the very most now. We're not talking about years past.

In his youth he was 5-5.

I stood next to him at a hotel and he is not 5'6, he is much shorter.
Anonymous said on 5/Sep/06
It's hard to gauge his height. I thought he was about 5'5 nowadays cause Kelly Ripa is taller than him when she has heels on.

JMG, I completely agree with you. He appears to be around 5'6" elsewhere, but really appeared 2-3"+ shorter on "America's Got Talent". That really makes me wonder if the contestants were really that tall, or if it has something to do with him wearing "special" shoes on his regular show? Just a guess.
sf said on 30/Aug/06
I've always thought around 5'6" too, at the most. Not quite as tall as Leonid, the Magnificent...
Dkko said on 30/Aug/06
I remember a show where The Narcissist showed up to promote SummerSlam and good ol Reg looked almost like Frodo did next to Aragorn in the LOTR movies, The Narcissist was at the peak of his physical condition back then, probably at 197cm, so that would certainly make Regis no taller than 160cm
JMG said on 29/Aug/06
On his show and almost every other appearance he makes he seems 5-6 but on "America's Got Talent" he seems to be 5-3 to 5-4 for some reason.
Glenn said on 5/Aug/06
5-6 it is.
Frank2 said on 5/Aug/06
So Shorty, have you met him? I have and he's 5'6".
Shorty said on 5/Aug/06
Regis is definitely no taller than 5'5" and I would bet 5'4".
C said on 4/Aug/06
I have a hard time believing this guy is over 5'5". Has anyone seen "America's Got Talent"? He is dwarfed by everyone, including some very young girls. He also appeared to be nearly a foot shorter than 6'3" Tom Green, on stage. Either most contestants on the show are abnormally tall, or Regis has lost height.
Frank2. said on 3/Aug/06
I knew Regis quite well, back when he appeared in San Diego and later when he was Joey Bishop's sidekick. Regis is 5'6".
Anonymous said on 2/Aug/06
if reg is more than 5'3, then I'm bill gates
Anonymous said on 15/Oct/05
He's definitely 5'5", you should change it.

[Editor Rob: I forgot to take some height from this guy...]
GPM said on 23/Sep/05
I met Regis in 1994. He's about 5'5".
McFan said on 18/Jul/05
I would say Regis is not taller than 5'6. He never looked 5'7.
mjd said on 7/Jul/05
if hes 5'7 now..then he must of been 5'8 at his peak...and that means he would of been 5'9-5'10 with see how ridiculous that sounds????regis right now is 5'4-5'5...
wierd said on 3/Jul/05

Palladium said on 7/May/05
Hi, Rob is it that money-guy, Regis Philbin not "Regis-Philibin", yes he's between 5'5" and 5'6", just sometimes he can look as an solid 5'8", maybe those many money's make it impossible to judge him. ;-"Pallas"
