Rob, here he is with Kiefer Sutherland. I duuno if it could only be down to lifts. What would you say upgrading Kiefer to 5ft9? Sorry, Im not sure how to make a clickable link
Editor Rob: they can look a similar range,

Old page, I know, but here is Rob with Nick Jonas:
Nick has on rather flat footwear, too, so it's not like some footwear advantage can explain this:
This guy needs a significant downgrade, most likely.

In People magazine's 1997 issue of 50 Most Beautiful People in the World, he is listed as 5' 9" and refers to himself as a short guy with big shoulders.

Have seen him in concert several times and stood next to him. I'm 6'1 and he was my same height

It was really weird, in an episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" ('Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life') he and the comedian Sinbad appeared together and Thomas didn't look much shorter than Sinbad.

Hi, I spent about 10 hours with the band Aug 2003 - I work at our local arena and my post was Matchbox Twenty's dressing ( i also work dressing rooms )- I'm 5'3 - my hubby is 5 ' 10 - and Rob is at least 5'9 - Rob is the nicest guy I've ever worked with - very down to earth and great sense of humor, the whole band was - he even invited me to come see them the next night , where i got VIP passes and hung out with them before and after the show - Super nice guy -

Yeah, I agree RW, he certainly looks taller than a weak 5'9" in the above photo. ?
RW said on 3/Oct/07
why does this guy look almost 5'10 to me in the picture?

Just got the Santana 'Supernatural Live' DVD, and this guy looks at least 5'10". Carlos is 5'9", right? Am sure Mr Smooth is taller. Maybe it's good posture, but...

5'9" at least
glenn said on 14/Aug/07
i just saw rob again the other day.still 5-9'
Frankie R. said on 13/Aug/07
Sorry Rob, you must be dizzy from the high altitude of being 6'1". There is no way he is only 5'5"-5'6". I'm 5'6.5 and he's taller than me. Trust me, I know.

I met rob thomas several times. I am 6 ft1 andhe was at least a half foot shorter

Checking this site because I just saw him while he was on vacation and he was taller than I thought he would be based on things people have said. I'm 5'8 and he was easily 5'9". He was barefoot (and shirtless, not that it matters) so it was definitely his true height. He's got a long torso and a good build so maybe that makes him look taller and more imposing in photos.

I think he gives the nick lachey effect. The first time i saw nick's pic i though he was atleast 6 feet but ya i think he barely manages to reach 5 feet 9. Rob thomas i think is a legit 5 feet 9er who can look tall due to his long body and appearance. When i saw the video of back to good, i thought he was atleast 180 cms but ya around 175 is about right.

Looks 5'9.5 to me with Glenn.
Anonymous said on 25/May/07
Yeah, he's about 5'9". He does have broad shoulders for his size. Saw him a few weeks ago and the dude is really fit. He's not very big but I think he could hold his own in a bar fight.
Drew said on 16/May/07
I totally agree Viper. This guy looks tall on screen. I assumed 6 feet.
Viper said on 14/May/07
He does seem a lot taller than just 5-8 1/2. Never would have thought that in a million years.
Del Mar said on 11/May/07
He's damn broad shouldered. And that might be the reason I always thought he was like 6-1, but I believe 5-9 now.
Anonymous said on 6/Apr/07
He's 5'9", easily. I'm 5'8 1/2 and he's a little taller than me.
Gavin said on 30/Mar/07
I'm a guy, 5'9" exactly, met Rob last fall. We both had on tennis shoes and we were definitely eye to eye. He's in great shape, but he's thin and I think it's his slightness that makes him seem smaller than he is.
Linda said on 30/Mar/07
Have met him several times and he is maybe a smidge under 5'9". I'm 5'3" and my son is 5"8". I've hugged them both and Rob is definitely taller than my son! Oh, and he had flat sneakers on at the time.

The pictures with Bill Maher- I know the show this is from, I watched- Bill is wearing dress shoes and Rob is wearing converse. Also, Bill is standing about two feet in front of Rob. Think about it.
Glenn said on 21/Nov/06
He truly is 5-9.
Padraig said on 21/Nov/06
Anybody still think Rob Thomas is shorter than Glenn?
Please look at Glenn's new image of Rob and himself.
Glenn said on 11/Nov/06
Saw him again 2 months ago.he is for sure 5-9.
said on 11/Nov/06
Again, with 5'7.75" Rove McManus (who's probably shorter):

MD said on 29/Aug/06
Ok, but he's definitely not taller. 5'8.5" to too tall, period.
MD said on 28/Aug/06
Rob, he's shorter than Bill Maher. Perhaps Bill is listed too short? Are you going to change this yet?
[Editor Rob: they appear very close for sure in pics, but watch the video on amazon fishbowl (under musical performances)...no idea on footwear. I wouldn't say he's shorter after viewing the video.]
Otacon said on 12/Jul/06
I dunno about that...after all, Glenn has proof positive with the above picture. For the record, Rob Thomas has never claimed to be above 5'9".
Zoopy said on 23/May/06
I met Rob before a taping of the Tonight Show...I'd say he was about 5'7''-5'8'' (I'm 5'6'' and we stood next to each other for more than a half hour so I had time to think about it) and he was really close in height to me.
Glenn said on 20/Jan/06
yeah we saw eye to eye.bad posture thats all.
Danimal said on 20/Jan/06
He looks about 5'6" in that pic. NO WAY is he 5'9".
MD said on 20/Jan/06
Poor posture or not, it's clear that even if he straightens up he'd be AS tall as Glenn, not taller, and especially not a full inch. 5'8" looks right to me.
CelebHeights Editor said on 20/Jan/06
Glenn estimates him 5ft 8, maybe 9...this pic I think Thomas may have poor posture!
MD said on 5/Dec/05
Well, the 5'3" should have been just ignored. It wasn't even worth re-mentioning seeing as how ridiculous it was, not even to mention how it had very little to do with Rob in the first place.
gyllenhaalic823 said on 5/Dec/05
I seriously doubt that he is 5'3"; I saw him on TV doing a live broadcast to raise money for Katrina rebuilding (along with other stars) and he looked to be average height (between 5'8.5"-5'10.5"), not my mom's.
(I say that because my mom is 5'3.5")
Glenn said on 30/Nov/05
I met him many times.he's 5'8''.maybe 5'9''.
some guy said on 5/Oct/05
I just watched an episode of ROVE LIVE (this is ROVE's TV show in Australia) 2 days ago and on the TV SHOW they stated his height. It was funny. On the TV show he had to pretend he was a kid answering questions in a kiddies contest to find out who is the brainiest kid and he was asked a question about his height. He immediately yelled out "6 foot 7" as a joke (the crowd laughed) and the contest host says "No Sorry its 5 foot 3". So basically what I'm trying to say here is that he's actually height is 5'3 because well I heard it on the show and he didn't even object to it. Thank you

BTW, here is the article where Rove McManus tells his height, though, I think he's fudging it by an inch (probably with shoes):
[Editor Rob: pic again. 174cm? Rove is a tad closer to the camera...]
GG said on 28/Sep/05
Rob is probably below 5'9, here's a picture of him standing next to Rove (Australian talk show host), he's said to be 173cm, he said it himself actually, buy hey he may have even exxagerated his height.
Otacon said on 4/Sep/05
I dunno about that...I meet alot of people that claim to be 5' 11 and I see their drivers licenses since I work as a retail manager and at least 2 out of every 5 are actually only 5'9". I'm 5'11" and I usually dwarf these guys...Anyway, Rob said in people magazine that he was "A short guy with a pot-belly" and he was listed as 5'9". I believe that's correct. He is also just about 5 inches taller than his drummer Paul Ducette.

From StereoGum, "for the record - rob is atleast 6' because i'm 5'11' and he's taller than me - i've met him in person"
