5ft 11.25in (181 cm)

This photo (by martin) was from an MCM Comic Con in 2015, a year in which he said on Instagram: "This just in: I'M STILL GROWING. I've been a solid 6'0 for my adult life. Well.. Today I'm officially 6'1 #EatingMyWheaties"

I'd say 5'11.5" would be very fair, since Rob is a strong 5'8". I see just a little bit more than a flat 3 inches here.

Lol at 6ft 1, doesn't even look over 5ft 11 here tbh. 180 is the most I would guess him at.

I know a guy who is about 5'11 range and also claims 6'1. Like wtf. I don't see the logic in it all lol. 6'0, ok fine. But 6'1!? Where do people get the audacity and logic?

Editor Rob: It would be like me at 9am in a big pair of Nike's pointing at the stadiometer saying 'look, 5ft 10 folks!'...
Maybe that's where Kevin Hart gets his 5'4 from? lol

no ly, you should be honest to prove a point that other people are lying, and just for honesty sake its better to say your real height anyway. 2 inches IMO is pushing it, but it does almost seem the norm these days. Shouldn't have to worry about lying if you're 6'0+ because most people or a lot of people will probably think you're tall in person anyway so there is no need to lie.
Editor Rob: Sam, I'm impressed with honesty in height, regardless of the actual height of the person.
If he'd said he measured at 9am in sneakers, it's probably not much of a lie really, he could be close to it.
It would be like me at 9am in a big pair of Nike's pointing at the stadiometer saying 'look, 5ft 10 folks!'...

Lol I liked how this site never takes footware into account.
You are apparently bang on 5'8 yet in this picture you have your height as 5'8 in trainers and travis just over 5'11 in his trainers.
I've drew the lines to show how many inches difference there is in a photo as if I am 5ft 8 barefoot.
If there's any difference in footwear mentioned, just visually account for that fraction in the mugshot.
There was 2 ways to do it: Here
The problem is though that at a glance people are seeing 5ft 8 Rob, then the line might show my hair brushing 5ft 9 or if I was in an inch sneaker a bit over 5ft 9.
For me it was simpler to visualise as though I'm barefoot and if there was any difference in footwear simply account for that based on the line.

nowdays every strong 5ft11 guy is claiming 6ft1 wtf am i supossed to claim now im 186cm should i claim 6ft3.25 so everybodys else lies are in tune

If you want to inflate your height Travis, at least just say 6'0 and not "solid" 6'0, cause you're not...
I believe it's just a pathetic attempt to convince people even more that he's a real 6'0. Or maybe Travis was measured shortly after out of bed and was measured exactly at 6'0 (hence his "solid" 6'0 claim), since most people lose about 0.75" from morning to evening, and he's probably not aware of the fact that people lose height. But there's no excuse for him to claim 6'1"

He had probably been measured in sneakers at 6 foot, now with a little thicker sneaker and a morning measurement, he could be 5'11.5-75 and get 6'0.75 with shoes

Loving the rollover image effect!!!
truth said on 18/Mar/16
Upon first look I thought this guy was weak 6´ish (182cm), but looking close I think 181cm is closer. He has a large forehead, his eye level might be what a 5ft11 person would have but the end of his head makes him at least around 5ft11.5.
NBAer said on 29/Feb/16
More 180 flat in my opinion-Rob comes in over 3cm above this guy's eyebrows,so max 7cm difference between them.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 18/Feb/16
Looks right on 181 cm but I really wouldn't entirely rule out 182 either.
said on 26/Oct/15
In this clip he can look near 6' (more 6 than 5 inches taller than Jonah Hill), actually: Click Here
But he is not that tall, more 5'11 with Rob (and Jared Padalecki)...
Andrea said on 26/Oct/15
Naa, i wouldn't say "3 good inches", he looks roughly around 180 with Rob, but something in 5'11 range is believable! 181 is just the most he'd measure... If he looked 3 good inches taller in person, i am sure Rob would have given him no less than 5'11.5 (maybe even 5'11.75) :)
TJE said on 26/Oct/15
181 is fair. There's a good 3 inches between Travis and Rob. He's got a very long eye level btw.
seb1.91 said on 26/Oct/15
He must be at least 5 ft 11, I am 6 ft 2 and my grandfather is 5 ft 11, and the difference is exactly like yours.
said on 25/Oct/15
Rob, is he stupid, or just a liar? How can a grown man at his age think he is still growing?
And about the solid 6 foot man... The whole quote is a lie from the begging to the end
[Editor Rob: early in the day with a boot and he may well be clearing 6ft easily enough to say 6ft 1...]
lelman said on 25/Oct/15
Damn he must have been about 5'10.25" when he was a 'solid 6'0'
Mat 5'10.25 said on 19/Oct/15
Rob, do you think Travis will be disappointed if he gets to see his celebheight's page?
ryan said on 17/Oct/15
Sam said on 16/Oct/15
Nah I feel this is the right listing for him. Looks 3 inches taller than Rob.
Big C said on 15/Oct/15
Guys I think hes 5ft 10.75 he looks no where near 181cm to me, 5ft 11 flat isn't impossible though, 180-180.5cm somewhere between that is what I think he will measure barefoot underneath a stadiometer.
linke said on 15/Oct/15
Always guessed 5'10-11 for him. Does look closer to 5'11.
RoryJS said on 15/Oct/15
Looked taller than Elyes Gabel on "Scorpion" (s02e04). Though it may have been because of the shoes.
184.3cm (Night) said on 15/Oct/15
Looks around 5'11 on the nose, although Colm meaney looked taller in his pic.
said on 14/Oct/15
When you say 5'11 RANGE, do you mean somewhere between 5'11 and 5'11.99 or something more "restricted"? As i said, i do think he'd measure somewhere between 5'11 and 5'11.25... I did think he might have measured 181-182 but, after seeing him with you, i don't think he's over 181!
[Editor Rob: nearer 5ft 11 than 6ft, so 5ft 11.25 is ok, 5ft 11 isn't impossible but I think 181 is what he may measure...]
Colm said on 13/Oct/15
He's 5'11" flat, no more no less.
said on 13/Oct/15
How could he mismeasure himself that much?
[Editor Rob: in shoes earlier in the day and not bashing a stadiometer down and you may get over 6ft!]
said on 13/Oct/15
Rob, do you agree that this guy is not under 5'11?
[Editor Rob: yeah he's somewhere in 5ft 11 range I believe.
We actually were standing here a long time I remember as Travis didn't have the right salute, at least the photographer was saying that to him!]
Sam said on 12/Oct/15
Hmm, this guy goes into too much to write it off like he's claiming a shoed height. Rob's listing seems accurate.
Big C said on 12/Oct/15
@Alex 6'0 I doubt he's over 5ft 11, looks 5ft 11 with the converse but take away the 1.6cm advantage he will look a weak 5ft 11 like 5ft 10 7/8ths or 178.9cm which is what I think Frank will be if he got measured, they both look weak 5ft 11 guys to me.
Big C said on 12/Oct/15
I think this guy could be the same height as Big Frank who is also near enough 5ft 11 both guys could be just shy of it, what do you think Rob?

6 feet 1... hmmm with a good pair of sneakers and Dr scholls maybe. Rob if you were more 5'9 ish that day, then i could believe 6 feet... but if you're more 5'8", yeah 5-11 and a wee bit for this guy. Good actor though, I just don't know if he's still growing at age....32?!!! I grew a bit from age 18 to 24, but it was maybe... 1/2 an inch at best.
[Editor Rob: it's 5-6 hours on my feet before this photo is taken so I'll be near low.]
Max said on 11/Oct/15
This just in: I'm actually only 5'11, let alone 6'0, or god forbid 6'1!!! In other words, I'm just a big fat liar!!! :D :D :P :)
Andrea said on 11/Oct/15
He doesn't look above 5'11 with Rob... I myself thought that 5'11.5 was possible, before Rob met him! If Rob decided to give him 5'11.25, I doubt there's even a small chance he's 5'11.5! 5'11-5'11.25 is probably his what he'd measure!
said on 10/Oct/15
Strong 5'11 so 181. That converse look kind of different from the normal/traditional converse shoes.. are they thicker in any way rob?
[Editor Rob: nah they're just normal type converse.]

Rob, could he be 5ft 11.5in? He looks 181-182 cm range. Maybe the 6ft is first thing in the morning.
Travis in person is nearer 5ft 11 than 6ft.]
Mike said on 10/Oct/15
Why would he feel the need to claim 6ft 1 if he said 6ft? 6ft 1 is outrageous...

Alex 6'0 said on 10/Oct/15
Def not 6'0-6'1. 5'11.25-5'11.5 I can see
120 said on 9/Oct/15
Well, that was quite some embarrassing claims.
Matthew190 said on 9/Oct/15
Maybe he could measure 5'11.5"? Certainly he's not really 6'1" without shoes.

More Like a Solid 5'10.5 .
said on 9/Oct/15
Rob are those Converse all stars shoes Travis is wearing? He could even be just shy of 5'11 if that's the case.
[Editor Rob: our footwear is very close.]
Ivy 5ft 7 said on 9/Oct/15
He looks 5'11" flat with you Rob why 181cm?
Andrea said on 9/Oct/15
Yeah, he just doesn't look a big 6' with you... Let alone 6'1! I wonder how he got that mark... Rob, do you think he'd be similar to Michael Rosenbaum, if measured?
Editor Rob said on 9/Oct/15
I doubt his claim is really talking about barefoot. Guys like Big Alex/Big Al (when I measured him last year at same as Alex) look taller in person than Travis.
Slothee said on 8/Oct/15
Solid 6'0"? 6'1"??? Lol even if he claimed to be a weak 6 footer he'd still be exaggerating. 5'11" at most!

That quote sounds brutally delusional
Clive said on 8/Oct/15
Hah! how embarrassing for him
Sean95 said on 8/Oct/15
I'm so amazed how some celebrities in their mid 30's think they're still growing? Imdb still have him at 1.83m let's see how long it will take for them to change it to 1.81m
Grant said on 8/Oct/15
Why do you think he would claim 6'0/6'1 morning measurement with shoes on?
Andrea said on 8/Oct/15
Wow, you met Travis, Rob! I asked you about him a few months ago and i didn't expect you wou would have met him :)
My guess was somewhere between 5'11 and 5'11.5 rather than the full 6' he got listed at! Jared can definitely look near 5 inches taller than him (well, no less than 4.5)... He looks about 5'11 with you! I certainly wouldn't put him under 5'11, so 5'11.25 is believable (he might still measure nearer 5'11 flat at his lowest though)! As always, great work, Rob :)
