He's able pull off near 5'11" w/ the people you've met? & wasn't even shorter than Colbert!

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
A strong 5ft 10 is possible, I don't buy his full 5ft 11 mind you.

@Editor Rob,

Would 5’10.5” be closer?

At times, He can pull off near 5’11” & can definitely look a very Strong 5’10/Weak-ish 5’11” range.

What do u think Rob?

There is a chance at times of 5ft 10.5, but I can't see a 5ft 11 for him.

Believable listing, looks a decent 5'10.
Nik Ashton said on 28/May/20
Jamie is hardly short!
JAJ said on 30/Aug/19
It's weird that when you look at the photos about Jamie and Adam it shows at times that Jamie looks 4cm up to 7cm shorter than Adam depending on the picture. So the question is how tall is Jamie if Adam is between 5'9 - 5'10?
Bobby 178cm said on 31/Jan/19
There's no way he can only be 5'9.5 as every time I see him with people, he always gives off that strikingly tall look. Is it just his proportions? Is it because everybody else is under 5'5? I don't know the reason involved, but he's gotta be a minimum of 5'10 to pull off looking above average as often as he does.

Despite the Obama footage, He really doesn’t look under 5’10” with most celebs.
I personally think he’s a Solid 5’10” Range guy, the 5’9.5” listing is harsh.

What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob
5ft 9.75 is arguable range for him.
gothama said on 9/Oct/18
Michael of Vsauce clearly isn't 5'8 though. common case of a 5'6 believing he's 5'8.
5'8 is average height in america but people tend to think theyre 2 inches taller than they are. 5'10 is above average height and can easily pass as 6' since everyone exaggerates their heights. adam is roughly 5'10 and michael of vsauce 5'6. that's really the difference of the two on video
Crab said on 28/Aug/18
He looks more than 2 inches taller than Michael Stevens of Vsauce, who claims to be 5'8".

Of course Michael could be more 5'7" or he could be wearing boots or whatever.

Rob, Have you seen him with obama? Barack looked around 4 inches shorter than obama.

Barack is 4 inches shorter than himself. LOL
Bobby said on 5/Dec/17
He always gave off a tallish impression on MythBusters, I'm surprised he's only a quarter of an inch shorter than I am. Is 5'10 possible for this guy? Or at least 177cm flat?

"Almost six foot" ... :)
Cool 5'9.5" guy (maybe 5'9.75").
dan said on 12/Apr/17
Rob, Have you seen him with obama? Barack looked around 4 inches shorter than obama.
Editor Rob: yeah, he can look a good few inches shy of Obama.
josh jeffords said on 2/Jan/17
Huh never woulda guessed but they do wear big boots in ever single episode of show...
If adam is close to 5 9 hyneman is under 5 7 with shaved head he has an easy 3 inches on him.
I suppose the Obama interview lame as it was did display a much taller profile than the im almost 6 ft adam...
And they had a tall guy and he looked massive so yeah probably true kinda funny..
Sad I hate when celebs lie about this stuff come on !!!@####!!.
Id bet 5 7 peak Jamie 5 6.5 Adam 5 10.5 5 9.5 Tori 511 ? Grant 5 5 5 4 Girls 5 4- 5 3.

WIth vsauce (5'8") looks an inch taller at 9 second Click Here
No One said on 28/Nov/16
Could he at least have 5ft11 displayed as his peak height?

Much shorter than a strong 6ft 1in Obama. Click Here

Dear rob, looking at this picture Click Here
Wouldn't you say Grant Imahara looks around the 5'5 range?
Editor Rob: yeah he can look that range
DarthVader said on 7/Mar/16
He looks about the same height, probably slightly taller than 5'10-5'11'' Stephen Colbert.

lelman said on 28/Feb/16
Wow, surprised to see this downgrade, thought he was easily 5'11" considering Tori was practically the same height as me, and seems shorter than Adam on the show. Guess I'm 5'8.5" then!
LukeSkywalker said on 11/Jan/16
About 5'7 for Hyneman?
James C. said on 31/Dec/15
If he is 5'9 1/2 how tall is Jamie Hyneman?
PepsiMax said on 25/Dec/15
Looks just about the same height as Michael Rooker who is listed 5'9 MAX.
Crypto139 said on 25/May/15
Either my friend's friend's female friends are all around 6 even or this guy isn't 5 feet 11. My friend is follow this guy onninsta gram that is like a community helper dude and he is basically this guys height in a picture but he looks short in all the other pictures and a few female friends are like a bit taller than him. Or maybe Swedish girls are tall as American men or something.
JAJ said on 12/Feb/14
Barack Obama looked about 4 inch taller than Adam! And about 6 inches taller than Jamie :) Aaron Paul looks about 5'7" or a hair taller and he is just in about the same height as jamie Hyneman.

So Adam is in range 5'9" - 5'9,5" (175-176cm), and Jamie 5'7" - 5'7,5" (170cm-172cm)
shrapnel said on 20/Sep/13
I don't know about Tori. I don't think he is over 5'10". Matt Cain, who is listed at 6'3" was a guest and towered him - seemed at least 5 inches. Jamie seems more 5'8" than 5'9". Oboma, listed at 6'1" towered Adam and Jamie by a fair margin.
lelman said on 31/Aug/13
@FA He could be just over 5'11", but I'm a pretty weak 5'11" and was pretty much exactly the same height as him. I tend to wear flats too, so I doubt I had any footwear advantage.
Jim said on 14/Aug/13
FA, I don't think Tori is 5'11.5

agree cole
cole said on 28/Jul/13
Adam at 5'11 and Jamie at 5'9 range would make sense.
TheVerve180cm said on 27/Jul/13
I think he is 5ft10.5-5ft11 and Jamie 5ft9.
lelman said on 25/Jul/13
I met Tory of Mythbusters a two years ago and was eye-to-eye with him. He always looks about the same size as Adam, so I'd say anywhere around 5'10.5 - 5'11" is fair.
TNTinCA said on 24/Jul/13
I live in the SF Bay Area and have seen both Jamie and Adam live.
5'11" seems spot on for Adam, although he often used to refer to himself as a six footer. Jamie was always difficult to gauge because his physique gives him the impression of being shorter than he actually is. But I pegged him at 5'9"
legit177cm said on 22/Jul/13
rob is jamie 5'10?
[Editor Rob: nah, looks at least 2 inches shorter than adam I'd think]
