Rarely struck me as 6’4”, he was a very, very slim man. 6’3” seems more realistic.

Rob, I found the below quote from Rick Stein from 2013

“I’m nearly six foot and more than 15 stone.”

Peak 6'4'' is reasonable. Rarely looked under it.
Ethan99 said on 6/Jul/20
lowest i would give him is a 6'3.75 at a low. He is a legit 6'4.

Rob, i notice Anthony Bourdain isn't looking full 6'4 before his death. Do you think 6'3 1/2 was possible?
Editor Rob
It's not unreasonable to expect he lost half inch by then.

Tallest chef out there. Solid 6ft 4 as I can clearly see him taller than average men outthere. RIP Anthony Bourdain (1956-June 2018)

Such a tragically early end to a life devoted to enrich those of others.

RIP Anthony xxx

You'll be missed big boy!!!

Would’ve guessed 6’4 to 6’6 range. He looked very tall on his show. Very funny and entertaining chef.

RIP, big guy! :(

Guessed him at 6'5". RIP to one of the most entertaining chefs. Sad to hear he died.
Nik said on 20/Apr/18
Maybe slightly less nowadays!
Tall Sam said on 18/Apr/18
Right around 6'4" flat and an insufferable personality.
Canson said on 20/Sep/17
If a legit 6'4" is guessed 6'6" just shows that other 6'4" guys here aren't 6'4
Im 171CM said on 18/Sep/17
Kinda tall lookin thought he was around or looked around 6'6"
Tim said on 27/Jul/17
Anthony is a legit 6'4 man (could be .5 taller in the morning). He is he is with my brother in the evening (right) who is 6 foot flat Click Here
Lmeister said on 4/Jul/17
I guess in his youth he was a strong 6ft4. His lanky build makes him look even taller. Nowadays maybe lost a bit of height. Peak 6ft4.25 Now 6ft3.5
Im 171CM said on 13/Jun/17
His age he may of lost a inch may be..I'd say 6'3"

rob, how tall do you think bjj fighter marcus buchecha is close to him? Click Here (VERY probably that both are barefeet in the photo)
Editor Rob
Anthony may well have lost a bit of height, but the guy can look over 6ft, maybe 6ft 1 if Bourdain was losing more posture than him.

Tony is obviously taller than 6'0 flat. At the least he is 6'3"
Oanh said on 2/May/17
Looks his stated height. Andrew Zimmern is listed in various sources at 5'11", but just a few years ago, he was listed at 5'10".
Don't know why he went up an 1", but it probably has to do with the his popular show "Bizarre Foods"
Andrew looks 5'10", and at probably 250lbs.
opus said on 22/Apr/17
tall guy. min 6'4''
Anon said on 10/Feb/17
Looks all of 6'4". Could maybe be lower now he's older.
201 said on 16/Jan/17
nowhere near 6'4". i lived in the same building as bourdain and rode the elevator with him. he's 6' tops.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Oct/16
I noticed on the European episodes of No Reservations there's the odd person that's taller than him.
bruh said on 10/Oct/16
@6'7'' with shoes...
yeah idk what you're on about but the average male height in America is 5'10'' so anything 6'0'' and above is towering over like half the planet already. 6'4'' is huge
6'7" with shoes... said on 23/Sep/16
6'4" is not tall... I was over 6 foot at age 13... with a size 12 shoe.... everyone in my family is over 6 foot...I'm only 6'6" and feel small all the time... especially when I play basketball....the centers and forwards are taller than me...towering is 6'10 or taller....
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/16
Watched a bit of his show and he does look towering on the street
jbeck said on 25/Feb/15
As much as he eats and drinks I'm shocked he isn't 600 lbs.
MD said on 23/Jan/15
It's funny, on his CNN show where he's traveling to these different places around the world, he looks like an absolute giant half the time. lol They even do tricks and such to get him and the folks he's working with in the same shot, but you can just how tall he is relative to most of the subjects on the show.

He's easily what he's currently listed.
Ace said on 21/Jan/15
He is shockingly tall. I met him not too long ago and I was surprised that he had an easy inch on me. He also is pretty broad and imposing.
avi said on 2/Nov/13
6'3 range no doubt
Enmascarado said on 25/Sep/13
He's a legit 6'4, it's rare to see another person as tall as him on his shows.
wiltonstilts said on 29/Jun/13
My cat from hell, jackson galaxy is he on here? Also a tall man. 6'2 I believe
wiltonstilts said on 29/Jun/13
I never noticed that you added him before. Hes a social animal very funny, quite the character, hes loud and enjoys his drinks. He is tall. 6'3 and a half id say. 6'4 at one point.
Jack said on 25/May/13
I always assumed he was tall, but I thought he was around 6'2" not 6'4"
Fern194cm-192cm said on 18/May/13
Thanks for adding him ROb!
Fern194cm-192cm said on 18/May/13
He is a true 6,4. Probably close to 6,4.5-6,4.75 outa bed.
