Honestly looked 5'7.5 (171cm) in Breaking Bad. Not ever any higher than that in my opinion.

5'8" in his dreams, 5'6 1/2" in reality.

Could be legit 5'8, he looks short on Breaking Bad but in everything else I've seen him in Aaron looks like a pretty solid 5'8 guy. For example, he looked barely an inch shorter than solid 5'9 Simon Baker in one scene I saw with them, I think the show was named The Guardian

Also, he doesn't look much shorter than Bryan Cranston outside of Breaking Bad

The final one is interesting, so I'm gonna analyze it. Bryan Cranston is probably about 182 cm (5'11.5) in those shoes. Aaron looks around 4-5 cm shorter than Bryan, so he's probably 177-178 (5'9.75-5'10) in those shoes. Said shoes probably give at most 5 cm (2 inch) boost. This would make Aaron 172.5-173 cm barefoot.

I'm aware that Cranston tends to have worse posture than Aaron, but nonetheless I can't see Aaron measuring more than 6 cm shorter than him. Don't forget that Cranston is a solid 179 cm guy and could probably measure very close to 180 cm

165-167 looks 2 inches shorter than tome cruise.
Heightist9999 said on 9/Apr/22
Gets the full 5'8 from me. He likely dips a bit under the mark by bed time, but I am sure his claim is very honest and he knows his morning height!!

Rob, why do Aaron looks taller with James Corden
And also taller than what James Corden looks with Dominic Cooper.
Editor Rob
I don't believe Aaron really is as tall as James, maybe it's posture/footwear difference accounts for it?
Sonnecker said on 30/Sep/21
172 cm for Aaron is spot on.
FriedChicken said on 8/Sep/21
Actor heights don't correlate to character heights which is why Captain America was described as 6'2 in the MCU.
Lucious said on 7/Aug/21
On the show jesses height is stated as being 180cm which is odd because Walter is stated as being 5’11 so they should be the same height?
shweta said on 8/Jun/21
5'8 max
MaskDeMasque said on 7/Feb/21
In early Breaking Bad I'd say Bryan was still at his peak and Aaron looks 3 inches shorter. 5'7.5

Kylo said on 21/Dec/20
I think he’s probably 5’7 5/8. Rob, how much do you think he weighed in the earlier seasons of Breaking Bad? 125 range?
Editor Rob
wouldn't have guessed as low as 125
Kylo said on 21/Dec/20
Rob, what do you think his weight was in the earlier seasons of Breaking Bad? 125 range?
Thomas j said on 16/Dec/20
I always thought he was solidly 5'8, because I assumed Bryan Cranston was 5'11. Now that I see Bryan is actually 5'10... Yeah I can buy 5'7.5, but not under.
Johnny 181-182 cm said on 7/Oct/20
Certainly didn't look taller than Giancarlo in Breaking Bad. Although Giancarlo had thicker footwear. Looked at most 5ft 7.5 next to 5ft 11 and 1/8th Marshawn Lynch in Westworld S3. A downgrade is necessary.
JustJohnny said on 21/Sep/20
5’7” flat dude with spiked-up hair.

Might even be a bit shorter than that.
Tall Sam said on 29/Jul/20
Could see him at his upper claim, 5'8.5", first thing in the am standing as straight as possible. Sometimes he can look fairly short and under the listing but his posture isn't always great.
Duhon said on 1/May/20
He never seemed as short as 5'5" but him or his character in breaking Bad had poor posture a lot of the time.
Johnnyfive said on 30/Apr/20
Gave me a 5'5 impression throughout Breaking Bad. I need to re-watch that show now.
Kieran S said on 11/Apr/20
Rewatching breaking bad, 172 seems bang on.
Daniel said on 5/Apr/20
He looks shorter than that in Breaking Bad. Around 1.68m would be my guess.
Nik said on 14/Mar/20
@ Cordwell Warnder - Being nice with the public is the most important thing but he is model material, male and female models can and should be any height. He is slightly below average BTW but even if he was 5'5" he would still be model material. 👌
Jkiller said on 11/Mar/20
5'7 and a half (171.5cm) is pretty spot on.

Equal said on 17/Dec/19
Rob, I dunno about this measurement. The latest Steven Colbert episode where he guests has him standing at Steven’s height, maybe even a smidge taller. To be fair, Aaron was wearing boots but from looking at the heel, they didn’t look like they added much. Am I going crazy?
Editor Rob
At times Aaron can look 5ft 8 solid with people
Man in Black said on 19/Oct/19
On this weeks J Ross talk show he came on wearing a chelsea boot with generous 2" cuban heel. Looked about 5'9.1/2" (in them).

172cm perfect for him.
c-mo said on 15/Jun/19
the number 172cm fits this guy so well . his proportions , his face even . everything . he is everything that I associate with 172cm

but I wouldnt rule out 172.5 - 173cm
Cordwell Warnder said on 27/Apr/19
Saw him in person. He's barely over 5'5", no troll. He's very small. That's one reason to wonder how the heck he could have been runner-up in an international modeling competition. Male models are almost never that short. On the other hand, he was very nice with the public.
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Feb/19
In a rundown of the ten easiest and most pleasurable celebrities to work with, Paul was voted number ten.

There was also a list of the ten celebs that are the most frightful to work with - but I decided not to write it down - yet!

But to find out that the 5ft8-8.5 has suddenly shrivelled down to 5ft7.75 Is bound to press a few grumpy buttons! 😕

Aaron has almost an inch on dean so i say he around 5'7.5
Peter175 said on 20/Nov/18
Fairly honest guy, he knows he's 5'8 but claims a morning height

I think he's 5'8 tbh the girl who played Jane in BB wasn't 4cm taller than him imo

I don't know why I believe he's claim of 5'8.5 he could have just said 5'9 or 5'10(5'11)like other guys his height but he didn't so...

@ Sandy Cowell & McPotatoid

Cracking name! It's nice to comment on another person with the "Paul" surname, Aaron can have 5'7.75"'
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jun/18
@ McPotatoid - Great name!

I have a copy of 'The Last House on the Left', (which I'm sure is a remake), so next time I can stomach it....

Until then, I will go with 5ft7.75!
McPotatoid said on 12/Jun/18
I was rewatching Breaking Bad and in ep. 11 of season 4 a latino guy describes Jesse by eye as a "180cm" LMAO.
Editor Rob
That's a rather optimistic estimate!
5'9 dude said on 21/Apr/18
Looked the same as giancarlo Esposito, don't you think rob ?
Editor Rob
Still think Aaron would edge him out, at times Giancarlo wears a thicker footwear.
Peter175 said on 10/Jan/18
Rob, is this the most honest way to claim a higher height? OFC he probably hits 5'8.5 with 9 hours of deep back sleepin'
Editor Rob
I think he probably did measure at different times and is being honest enough, sounds like he might have done an out of bed height once!

I'll give him the weak 5'8", really never looked that much shorter than Cranston.

in the sec shot he looks just shy of 5'8
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 11/Aug/17
Doesn't look over 170cm in this mugshot, although he looks like he's losing about 0.25" due to posture. 5'7.25" is what guess for him.

Editor Rob
for once, a mugshot with the camera at top of head! No advantage gained there...
Peter175 said on 5/Aug/17
James that looks about an inch and maybe a tad more with Kit Harington. Don't know their footware though.

A172 at first glance she seems a 5'4" girl to me.

He was looking like 3-3.5 inches shorter than Bryan Cranston so I would guess like 5 feet 7.25
Peter175 said on 4/May/17
Are you still betting on a full 5'8 for Mr Paul, Mr Paul? :')

I never thought he looked only 1cm more than Esposito on BB. Near Malek looks a full inch or close to it
Editor Rob
not sure he's really a 5ft 8 proper.
delancey said on 2/May/17
Looked 5'7 range in Breaking Bad.
Cameron said on 29/Mar/17
I don't think 5'8" flat is completely out of the question but 5'7.5" certainly seems more likely.
Cameron said on 27/Mar/17
Shade below 5'8". But he's close to 5'8" then 5'7" flat IMO.
divincodino92 said on 27/Feb/17
no more than 1,70!
Kyle said on 23/Dec/16
Hmm tough one but I'd give him the 5'8", he seems to edge out most guys who claim that. Him next to kit harington and mark hamill definitely adds weight to his claim.
Peter175 said on 8/Nov/16
Huh, I had no idea the shoes walt wore had that much heel heigh to them. I can believe him at close to 5ft11 still, but I was under the assumption that those shoes were like no more than 0.5 inch
Chris175 said on 5/Nov/16
He seems to be more than an inch shorter than kid cudi in need for Speed, either Cudi needs an upgrade or aaron Paul needs a downgrade. Or both
Chilean said on 24/Oct/16
Rob why this guy looks so short in some movies or in breaking bad , could be his big head and long neck ? i cant see him above 5'7.5
Editor Rob
yeah his head could make him seem shorter, I think 172cm is ok for him.
easy e said on 22/Oct/16
Bryan Cranston is wearing wallabee's which tend to give a lot of heel height. I have those exact same shoes and I am well above six in them, and I am definitely around 5'11 barefoot.
Sammy Derrick said on 8/Sep/16
In the movie Central Intelligence,his character is listed as
He easily towers Kevin Hart whose about 5'3 and is towered by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson whose 6'3.He looks 5'8 cause he portrays a villain alpha male. I don't see him being below 5'7.5 barefoot.
BT said on 3/May/16
@HeightcrazyRed6ft: Cranston would often wear these on the show: Click Here and Paul mostly was wearing a converse type shoe. 5'7.75 is a safe bet.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 30/Apr/16
just watching Breaking Bad, 5th atm and thought he could be even shorter than Robs listing. Cranston towers him in some face to face scenes.

Rob do you agree or is 5´7.75" the lowest you would argue?
Editor Rob
like any listing, I think you wouldn't rule out fractions below/above at times...for Aaron I think at times he has looked 5ft 7.5 up to 8
Paleman said on 17/Mar/16
The baggy clothes and poor posture made him look 5'6" on Breaking Bad. But yeah, when standing up straight and proper he looks a smudge over 5'7"... I think the current listing is fine, he could even measure a little bit under it.
184.3cm (Night) said on 3/Sep/15
Been watching Breaking Bad and all i can say is never trust a drug dealers doctor. He says to Aaron that he is 180cm and around 70 kg in one scene. I thought he looked maybe 174cm and now i come here and he is 172cm!!. Biggest boost i have ever seen on a show.
nar said on 29/Jul/15
angryjohnny says on 3/Aug/13 @

Human average height for males is 168cm. For females it is 160cm. In USA the average height for men is 176cm and woman around 165 cm. So your "average" is very wrong.
Joe said on 10/Jul/15
If you watch his brief appearance in mission impossible 3 he looks two inches shorter than Tom cruise. I would say 5'5.75 to 5'6.25
an anonymous peach said on 7/Jul/15
I think his claim is legit, honest 5ft 8er and easily looks it next to Kit Harrington
Lowp said on 22/Jun/15

170cm should be apropriate

In S04E11 of breaking bad, the doctor was describing jesse pinkman and saying that he was 70kg and 180cm (which is 154 pounds and 5'11").... I'm fairly sure thats not the case

And the funny thing is that early on the series, Walter White was described as "5ft 11" which means Jesse and Walter would be the same height, even though it's very clear that there is at least 2.5 inches between them.

He looks shorter than the guy who plays Gus, who is listed here as 5'7.5, I think he could be around that height or a little shorter
Sam said on 14/Mar/15
Without knowing anything about this guy besides watching a few episodes of Breaking Bad, guessed him as roughly 5'9, although there were some scenes where he could just appear 5'8, which I thought more of when comparing him to the likes of Cranston etc.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jan/15
Yeah looks 5'7" range I think.

@Thom/Bob: Wouldn't bet on 5'7 but he can look 5'7.5 at times, other times about 5'8. 5'7.75 is fine.

Deserves an upgrade to 5'8".
Shawn said on 4/Nov/14
What's funny about that that is in one of the early episodes of BB (either 1st or 2nd season), Cranston's character goes missing and his wife describes him as 5'11" as well. Funny when there's an obvious 2-3" difference between the two.
tom said on 20/Oct/14
I think around 5'8" is bang on. He looks below average, but not really short. Lowest I could see is 5'7.5"

When gustavao fring gets his blood tranfusion in Breaking Bad the latin doctor reads off his chart gives jesse(Paul) height 180cm 5'10.75'' and weight 71kg 158lbs. Anyone notice that.the weight is likely right but not the height.

hey rob i figured out what makes him look shorter than he realy is long kneck big head and narrow body width of his shoulders... gives the apperance of being shorter
robert said on 28/Jul/14
when i watched breaking bad i thought he was about 5ft5 i wounder what makes him look shorter than what he is
Sam said on 28/Jul/14
True, all the significant female roles on BB were played by taller than average women, whereas the men were all average height or under...perhaps it made guys like Walt and Hank seem more like underdogs, which worked for the plot.
cc said on 27/Jul/14
hmm...i still dont think hes 5'8. he looks like a shrimp on the show, either that or everyone is really tall , which is also true especailly the women, skylar, marie (forgot their real names)
robert said on 26/Jul/14
hey rob for some reason he always gives the ilusion of looking shorter hes not that short but he appears like a short guy maybe it his body proportions
Alex 174 said on 3/Jul/14
Hi Rob, I just read the comment below where you say if you're 174 out of bed you're likely to be 171 at your lowest.

You've probably read my comments on losing 1cm in height at 21 (lowest was 174)! But I wake up around 174 and my lowest height is 173.2cm after 12+ hours awake. Is this possible? My eyeline is 161cm or thereabouts, is this above or below after eyeline for my height? What is your eyeline?

Also do you list all your celebs at their lowest heights?
Editor Rob
it's not impossible to only lose a cm, but that is on the low end, typically the average from studies is close to 2cm.

I try to list them based on afternoon or evening, there's really not much difference between those...but sometimes I err on the positive, so some listings if you ever measured an actor could turn out to be a morning.
176 cm man said on 17/Jun/14
cranston is a weak 5'11'' and has 3 inches on him so 5'7.75 is spot on
Sam said on 12/Jun/14
Hmm, at the Spike TV's Guys Choice awards, he looks a little taller than usual. Around an inch over Kit Harington, maybe half an inch under Andy Samberg and no shorter than the other Mr. Paul (Editor Rob) compared to Norman Reedus. Wonder if he was wearing slightly bigger heeled shoes than the other guys.

I think that his height should be upgrated to at least a full 5'8".
Realist said on 6/Jun/14
Weak 5'8. 5'7.75 is good, 5'7.5 later in the day. Rob if a guy is 172-73-74 most of the time during the day is it possible he dips to 171-72 around 1-2 A.M. if he wakes up at lets say 6-7 am. Maybe someone like you ?
Editor Rob
if he is 174 out of bed there is a chance he could be 171 by evening, but 172 is more likely.
jamz said on 1/Jun/14
There's at least 3 inches between him and Cranston. 5'7" sounds reasonable
Patrick 1.75.5m said on 20/Apr/14
I don´t think, he looks close to a Hardy oder Foxx, who are listed at 1.75m.

Only 3 cm´s difference? I´m not sure.
chrisssss said on 21/Mar/14
Most people who claim 5'8 are actually shorter, hence why people think 5'8 is really small, aaron paul is a good example of a 5'8 guy. Doesn't look tiny, but doesn't look like a giant

Here is Aaron next to Elle Fanning. Not sure how much foot advantage Aaron had with his shoes over Elle's sandals. But he seems to be slightly taller than her: Click Here
Keltoi said on 20/Feb/14
I've also been watching Breaking Bad over the last few weeks.

I'd say this listing is very close, if not spot on. He can look 173-4cm at times and sometimes shorter than 172cm. I'd guess somewhere in between those two marks is bang on.

Cranston is a legitimate 179cm guy and proves you don't need to be 183cm to look decent, in terms of proportions and overall aesthetics. He can and does appear tall at times, in reality a strong average though, whilst Aaron is a weak average guy.

Comparing him with Dean Norris, shows just how important weight is as well. Dean is only around an inch shorter, but can look smaller at times, due to his bulky frame.
Barry 178 said on 8/Jan/14
This listing seems about right Ive been watching a lot of breaking bad lately and he is clearly fairly short but not super short by any means looks like a 171-172ish man
(S)aint 185 said on 26/Dec/13
With his Breaking Bad mugshot he isn't standing quite straight and he would be pushing 5'9" if he did. He is likely wearing shoes however. Weak or strong 5'8" is all plausible I think.
MD said on 4/Dec/13
Middle tall? Huh?

5.7.5'' is possible Lorne, like I said him and Esposito looked the same to me in Breaking Bad.

I think him and Esposito are the same, just Esposito has footwear advantage on BB.
truth said on 10/Nov/13
Aaron Paul 171cm, Bryan Cranston 178cm. Night heights.
Balrog said on 7/Nov/13
I thought this guy was the full 5'8'' but 172cm isn't impossible, I think his claim is honest, he probably wakes at 5'8.5'' and drops at 5'8'' or a bit under it.
Blaze said on 18/Oct/13
I think aaron is 5'8 and no more than that and cranston is 5'11 and no more than that
Dude said on 8/Oct/13
If you click on cole's 2nd pic you can see how short Aaron's arms are. Cranston's arms go further down than his even though he's more than 2 inches taller...weird

His short arms/limbs could be why he looks shorter than he actually is. SHort limbs=look shorter than you actually are
Lo sgozzatore said on 7/Oct/13
cole, i perfectly agree with you ;)
Lorne?$! said on 6/Oct/13
Him and Giancarlo should be reverses. 171cm for Aaron Paul., and 172cm for Esposito, he always edges him out, though geodes have footwear advantage.
cole said on 4/Oct/13
There is really no need for more pictures to prove two already spot on listings. But since some of you are still trying to argue Aaron at 5ft 7in or less, I'm just going to do it anyway, to prove that there in fact is as close to 7 cm between them as it gets, and not 9 cm or more.

Rob, when did you downgrade him from his previous 173cm listing? For what reasons? I don't necessarily disagree, but just wondering what was the evidence that caused the change in opinion.

I think it's a closer fit a fraction shy of the mark

He's 170.75 cm. Barefoot, evening height.

Unless everyone else on BB is wearing lifts, then there is no way Aaron is 5-8....Just watched the fight seen in Jesses's house with Walt---Walt looks atleast 5 inches taller----NO way Aaron is more than 5-5 or 5-6
cumali said on 21/Aug/13
he is look like 168 cm?
cole said on 19/Aug/13
@meme: I'd be able to notice a 3 cm difference, at least if two people stood more or less perfectly still, side by side, with the same posture and more or less the same footwear.

But what looks like a 3 cm difference in one picture can look like more, or less, in another, so it's not all that straight forward especially when judging from pictures. So you're right on that part, if that's what you meant. You'd have to find a perfect shot to tell if a person was spot on this or that much taller than another, and it's not often that you find a shot like that.

He looks 5' 7", but so hard to tell when you don't know what they are wearing.

I don't understand how people claim to think he looks 5'7, 3cm difference isn't that noticeable
angryjohnny said on 3/Aug/13
Average height for males in my view is 5'10 /5'11 women 5'7". Most women are taller than myself (5'6"). I had to resort to lifts/tall shoes that advertise 3" increase , but only give me 2" and still most people are still taller than me.
cole said on 27/Jul/13
Looks under 5'7 with Moyer, if he is 5'9, but knowing Moyer he might be wearing lifts.
Makavel said on 10/Jun/13

Luffy said on 10/Feb/13
looks a little under this on Breaking Bad. But no biggie its just a case of about 1/2 inch plus or minus. Could just be his posture that makes it look less.

By the way Rob, what height do you think James Roday is? He's the main character on Psych along with Dule Hill. he claims 5'10.
Adamz said on 2/Feb/13
I am surprised he didn't lie. He cant be any shorter than this. its very rare an actor this height doesnt add an inch or more. Rob what do you think when an actor under 72, let alone 70 inches doesnt lie?
Editor Rob

those who don't lie about height 'get it'...there's absolutely no need to lie about it.

If you lie about such a trivial matter such as height, there are no bounds as to what else you may lie about.
Adamz said on 24/Jan/13
Can't see any shorter than 172 cm...
johnny said on 23/Jan/13
Click Here if Aaron really is 5'8 then Bryan is 5'11.5 or 6'. Bryan always wears those slipper type shoes on BB and also there is no need to make Bryan taller if people wanna claim lifts. I say 5'10.5 for Cranston and 5'7 for Aaron Paul.
Lo sgozzatore said on 29/Dec/12
Now that i watched almost all the series, i admit he can look under 5'8. He does look slightly shorter than Giancarlo Esposito in many scenes and 6 cms shorter than Bryan Cranston... Rob, you think he might be 5'7.5?
Editor Rob
a weak 5ft 8 is quite possible
Lo sgozzatore said on 16/Dec/12
He does look near this listing, at worst he's 172 but i doubt he's any less! 5'8 is ok...
Dean Norris looks 5'7, maybe 5'7.5
195jerry said on 10/Nov/12
sorry, but he looks 5'7 on breaking bad, especially next to cranston.
harop said on 10/Nov/12
Max 172 compared to Bryan Cranston

Ed O'Neill is 6'1 so yeh he does.

Sorry, wrong URL on last post. This is the good one:

Does Norris look 5'8" to you?
Kid Q said on 23/Sep/12
By the same token, is Dean Norris (Hank Schrader in Breaking Bad) really 5'8"? Ed O'Neil (Al Bundy in Married with Children) is supposedly 6'1" and Ted McGinley (Jefferson D'Arcy) is 5'11", yet look at how short Norris looks standing beside them:

Norris looks more like 5'6" than 5'8". What do you think?
Awesomimous said on 3/Aug/12
I'm not one of the people who come here to downgrade people. I agree with the 5ft9 listing for Stallone, and 5ft7.75 for Tom Cruise. And that's that. But Aaron Paul is clearly shorter than 5ft8.

With 5ft10 Cranston (note Paul's hair advantage)
Click Here

You (5ft8) with 5ft11 Brian Austin Green (0.25 inch shoe disadvantage)
Click Here
This shows a 2.75 inch difference then.

So it's clear that Paul is AT LEAST 2.5 inches less than 5ft10. Hence, 5ft7.5 at best. Now these were one of his better pictures, there are many others where he seems even shorter. But I'll leave it at this.
Matt said on 30/Jul/12
Am I the only one who thinks he looks 5'6" ish? Can appear 5'7" ish with shoes so maybe around 5'6.5-5'6.75?
MaskDeMasque said on 14/Jun/12
5'7 ish... not 5'8
Haze said on 3/Feb/12
Not 5'8 for sure. 5'7 is nearer. Evidence clearly shows that.
MD said on 28/Dec/11

He really is a shortish, slightly-built guy.

We should probably take this quarter inch off, already, at least. I bet the guy is about 5'7.5" and 140lbs, tops.
S said on 27/Dec/11
Off screen, I promise, Aaron Paul is no taller than 5'4.
Tom said on 28/Oct/11
5'7 130 lbs.
John said on 11/Oct/11

While watching the last episode of the season (4x13) i realized in one specific scene where they two (Bryan Cranstron and Aaron Paul) are walking in the lab towards to the camera... and it's clear that Bryan Cranston is half a head taller than Aaron Paul (Even when Bryan Cranston is not a full 1'80cm)...

I bet he's 5'7 (1'70)... and sorry for my english if something's wrong.
lorne said on 10/Oct/11
... I want to believe his claim, but I am not much taller than that, and I look nowhere near as short as he does. For example, my friends father is a solid 5ft10, and when he was younger was over 5'11 outta bed... point is, he is similiar height to 179cm Bryan Cranston, maybe a cm shorter, yet I am eye-to-eye with him, whereas Cranston towers Aaron!!!

I think he needs a downgrade Rob, but he IS a strong 5ft7 guy, maybe even a full 5ft8 out of bed.
Dominico said on 6/Oct/11
yeah that been drivin me nuts all week..nooooo way is Aaron 180cm thats about 6'1''...i ggive him 5ft6 tops....weight 140..look at his hands,he does have tiny features for a guy..but he is cool as hell,i like him..i didnt think anyone else paid attention to what the doctor was saying,im glad i wasnt the only one..
RJ said on 1/Oct/11
yes it was funny he was described as 180. I don't even think Bryan Cranston is quite 180 and he towers over Aaron
John said on 26/Sep/11
On the last episode of 'Breaking Bad' (4x11) a doctor on the fiction described him, and said that he's 1'80cm and 70kg. I know the doctor was talking about Aaron's Paul character (Jesse Pinkman), but that is still curious...
James said on 14/Sep/11
I used to work with Aaron. He's a very small guy. I'm 6'6.3/4" w/o shoes and I am easily a foot taller than him. I put him at 5'6" on a good day!
Wyatt said on 8/Feb/11
5'7, watch breaking bad.
Kristian said on 18/Dec/10
I struggle to believe this guy is over 5'7" daily peak
