@ROB
Is he looking down to the cam or matched ?
Editor Rob
I don't think he was losing much, near 6ft 1, but never 6ft 2-3

Taller than Stephen Amell
Jordan87 said on 17/May/18
A tad bit under 6'1, Def Over 6'0 as per the picture with Rob.
Bobby said on 21/Apr/18
Would give him 6'1, his average guess is bang on 6'1.

Jar Jar was actually about an inch taller than Qui Gon, but Jar Jar was CGI. Ahmad Best just supplied the voice and he is significantly shorter than the character he voiced. Jar Jar is around 6 ft.5.

Wait, wasn't he the mo-cap actor, too? I guess they can still scale up the 3D model to make him appear larger.

Rob, I’m damned that this guy is listed at 5’11” on google. 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

He’s looking damn close to a full 6’1”!
Editor Rob: as much as Jar Jar was a disaster of a character (so much so I can't watch those films again), giving him 180cm is a significant travesty, he is simply well over 6ft flat.

186.7 cm in the morning.
184.7 cm - evening height.
Mickey said on 16/Aug/17
He doesn't look much more than 6ft in that pic...
Rory said on 7/Jul/17
Rob, would Ahmed measure 187cm flat immediately out of bed do you think ?
Editor Rob: yes it's very likely he would be near that range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/May/17
Out of bed: 186-187cm
Before bed: 184-185cm

Looks 183/184
berta said on 4/May/17
i wonder if he know about the alexander thehnique. it looks like he does
Namor said on 29/Apr/17
Looks 183.5 cm tall
berta said on 19/Feb/17
he looks like he could be a strong 6foot 1 guy but he stands like he is being measured. and is just under 6 foot 1 when standing like that. i think the listing is spot on
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/17
Just Under 6'1" with Rob.
berta said on 19/Jan/17
he is looking 185 with perfect posture like he is in measuring stance. and it looks like rob is standing loose. i think he can be 185 but 184 is a big chance to. if you look wityh photo of eric christain olsen , then olson looks 1 cm taller
Mark(5'9.25 said on 8/Jan/17
6'1"
Peter 179cm said on 1/Jan/17
Strong 184cm and about 185 through the day.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Nov/16
No Rob is a rock solid 5ft8 but this guy almost 6ft2?
Feniz said on 8/Nov/16
If Rob really is 5'8 that guy must be almost 6'1.75" or 187 cm.

Or Rob is only like 5'7"
Christian-196cm (6ft5.25) said on 25/Aug/16
Ahmed is a rare example of a person's actual height being underlisted on Google. According to Google he's only 180cm.
Ken said on 20/Aug/16
Rob would the start of his hairline be at 5 ft 10 1/2.
Editor Rob: yes in the 179cm range.
Moke said on 2/Apr/16
perfect listing!
pablo77bar said on 29/May/15
This is what a 6ft 1 ( 1,85) guy should look
Emil 183 cm said on 5/Mar/15
I'd say a 184.5 cm for Ahmed Best.
Dont forget that 6'0.75 is 184.78 cm so Rob's estimate is good
Hypado said on 23/Feb/15
Ahmed Best's height is 6ft 0.75in, a legit 6ft 0.75in
joe 192cm said on 10/Feb/15
Urban exceeded 6'1 (185)
poorelephant said on 18/Jan/15
definitely needs an upgrade. maybe 6'1.25
Judd said on 24/Sep/14
6'0.75" with rob on
Realist said on 10/May/14
Rob i think its the photo angle or heel advantage cause he is looking about 5 inches taller than you here. I'd give him 6'1.25 here. But Rob is more experienced so i think he might be correct.
jeremy said on 23/Feb/14
he is more about 187
[Editor Rob: he was a solid inch smaller than a 6ft 2 guy in this photoshoot!]
Lorne said on 13/Oct/13
I agree with Dmeyer, the top of your head does come over his eyeline, like a 4 inch difference. If you say around 185 I believe it, but to me, he doesn't even look 184cm.
Balrog said on 16/Sep/13
Rob why you think he is under 6'1" honestly he looks the full 6'1" to me on this pic. Does he had better posture than you?
[Editor Rob: he looked in the 6ft 0.5-1 range to me so 0.75 would be close I believe.

to me he looks pretty similar to the 184cm guy both in a photo and in person.]
dmeyer said on 4/Aug/13
185cm is fair but a 12cm means you should be just under his eye level while you are above it in the pics i see a 9.5cm wish means barely 6 ft
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/13
What were his shoes like, Rob?

He looks 186-187cm range in all honesty.
[Editor Rob: similar to mine]
Emil said on 30/Jun/13
Ash Navarre says on 18/May/13
186cm with a very good posture perhaps?

His posture is very good here, he's just tilting his head
Jack said on 3/Jun/13
This is what a 6'1" guy should look next to a 5'8" guy
DeuxEx said on 30/May/13
The difference between a 6'0 and 5'8 individual is somewhat huge in my opinion. For example my bro and myself. There is about the same difference in height between us.
Ash Navarre said on 18/May/13
186cm with a very good posture perhaps?
Dmeyer said on 6/Mar/13
Rob how Côme the top of your head comes just above his eyebrow wish mean 3 in différence while hé is near 5 in taller
[Editor Rob: I don't think I appear much at all over his eyeline. I saw him with a few guys whose height I know and 185 is what I thought he was.]
Jamesy said on 25/Jan/13
I don't know why but he gives of a 6'3 vibe with rob
Johnnyfive said on 13/Sep/12
Dude looks 185, but 184 isn't out of the question if the 184 flat (like me) height challenger can look the same height as him. Shoot, I can probably look this tall if I stand like Ahmed.
USYD said on 29/Dec/11
185cm to me.
ChiasmataX said on 24/Dec/11
You are losing a few mm Rob with your posture (tilting forward), if you stand straight I am seeing him at exactly 184 cm (height challenge # 10 guy). However, this guy might be well over 185cm in the morning so I guess 185cm is a fair estimate for him.
[Editor Rob: challenger 10 can have bad posture at times, but standing tall #10 looks as tall as many actors who claim 6ft 1...]
Adamz said on 9/Dec/11
6'1" easy
Lenad is sexy said on 5/Dec/11
if both men stood normally i would see 4.5-5inches difference
SAK said on 26/Nov/11
He is 184cm almost identical to challenger 10.
[Editor Rob: I think best is a cm taller than #10 ]
Tman said on 13/Nov/11
a solid 4 inches on Rob 184-5cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Sep/11
185cm(6"0.75) looks legit
Lenad is sexy said on 10/Sep/11
solid 184cm guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/11
Rob is 173.5cm or a strong/legit 5ft8 and this guy looks 10cm taller. So 6ft0.25-6ft0.5 in the pic or 183.8cm.

Height is 6ft0.5(184cm) but the extra 0.25in isn't out of the question either.
Alex said on 28/Jul/11
Looks 6'0 1/2 with Rob.
Mathew said on 12/Jul/11
Looks a legit 6'1", but he's holding better posture than Rob.
Lenad is sexy said on 15/Jun/11
solid 184cm would be my estimate
runt said on 19/May/11
worst character in Science Fiction history, but cool dude.
James said on 1/May/11
I think 185cm is fine for this guy
Lenad is sexy said on 1/May/11
Looks like he'd be 4.5-5 inches taller than Rob.
Chameleon said on 29/Apr/11
Agree'd with USYD & James!
Dave said on 19/Apr/11
6'1'25"(186 cm) is closer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/11
He's looking 186-187cm in this pic
James said on 26/Mar/11
weakish 6'1
Shaun said on 6/Mar/11
Looks 6'1 to me.
James said on 29/Jan/11
rob is losing half an inch of height with his bad posture so 6ft.05 (184cm) is not of the question for Ahmed
Clive said on 1/Jan/11
SOLID 6'1"
ACG said on 1/Jan/11
Meesa thinks Jar Jar is just a hair below 6'1.
James said on 30/Dec/10
a very strong 6ft guy but he's not quite 6'1.
James said on 29/Dec/10
184cm at night
jtm said on 26/Dec/10
that 4 letter site has him at 5'11.
Jon 183cm said on 26/Dec/10
hes not standing completely straight..... definately close to 6'1

[Editor Rob: I've not seen many actors with better posture than Ahmed in person.]
michael said on 26/Dec/10
yeh, that looks 6 foot 1 to me.
CaptainSpaulding said on 24/Dec/10
He looks at least 6'1" to me.
Mathew said on 22/Dec/10
6'0" - 6'1", fair listing.
rob89 said on 21/Dec/10
Looks closer to 6' than 6'1 TBH. The top of Rob's head easily reaches his eyebrows, and his posture looks decent too.
Larc186-188cm said on 21/Dec/10
Looks 6'0.5, but maybe he isn't standing that straight, I say this because usually a true 6'1 has a 5'8 eyelevel.
looks said on 21/Dec/10
around 184-5cm
Moke said on 21/Dec/10
Yeah I already imagined him being 6ft1 before reading Robs listening. Seems correct.
dashing said on 21/Dec/10
187 cm to me
James said on 21/Dec/10
looks this for sure
linke said on 21/Dec/10
weak 6'1
