I think he needs an upgrade. He looks closer to 5'10''.

Ah, here he did claim the flat 5'11 Click Here
which seems more like it for someone his height...

Good downgrade, he was visibly more than 1/2 inch shorter than Colbert. Wonder what caused him to chance his luck with that very specific claim when he is clearly nowhere near it.

What about Adam?
Its quite unfair That Adam and Alton are listed the same, Adam never looks short, unlike Alton.
Adam always holds up to tall guys (such as Karl Urban and Joe Manganiello), Wasn’t even much shorter than Stephen Colbert and Looks min 2 inches on Ray Park!
IMAO Adam is Around the 5’10” Mark.
Do u Agree Rob?
The 5ft 10 mark is a possibility for Adam, 5ft 11 though always seems impossible.

I really think he needs another downgrade!
Bobby Flay (Listed 5’10.5”)
Adam is 100% taller than Alton in most videos and pics of them together!
I refuse to believe that Alton is Taller or even same as Adam, Either Adam needs an upgrade to 5’10.5-11 or Alton needs a downgrade to 5’8.5-9 range.
What's your thought on this Rob?
Having time for a look, I can see how he might be inflating his height by 2 inches.

He needs a Major Downgrade!
Bobby Flay (Listed 5’10.5”)
He’s nothing over 5’9”, wouldn’t surprise me if he added 2.5 inches to his claim. He always looks AVERAGE!!
What do u think Rob?
I don't know about 5ft 9 but he can look 5ft 9.5 or 10

@THEguy Well, not everyone. I am specific about mine. Morning height is 5'11 3/8'' and night height is 5'10 1/2''. In the past, it was 6' morning and 5'11 1/4'' at night. If someone asked, I'd tell them whatever the current measurement was.

anyone that claims something "and a half" is almost certainly lying or simply "off". People naturally round up (or down if they feel theyre awkwardly tall). Brown never appears to be a 6 footer. Probably closer to 5'10, 5'11 right out of bed at best.

Rob, do you want to come look at this one? I only ask because everyone seems convinced that he can't be over 5'10", let alone almost six-foot. Perhaps, a little photo investigation would be in order.

No way this tall. Looks shorter than 5'10.5 bobby flay. I'd say 5'9.5

I think he is 5'9" because he was about 7 inches taller than 5'2" Giada Delaurentis

I met AB at a cooking show in San Diego back in 2003. I'm 5'-10", stood next to him, and had photos taken. He's 5'10-1/2" at most.
