Is that Wesley snipes with him and Donald there rob? He doesn't look 3.5 inches shorter than clay
Editor Rob
Arsenio Hall. I think the photographer is on a stool and quite high up there, making Clay look a bit shorter (because he's closer).

I stood next to him at a stage door and he's definitely at least 6'1" maybe even 6'2".

He's around 6'0". Maybe just a shade over that, but not much. Studdard is 6'3".

He was a bit taller than Braff on Scrubs.
But, I think he might be a little less than this.

184cm, Rob?

I'd say at least 6'1" or 6'2" I'm 5'11" and he towered over me.

Clay Aiken is pretty much 6 feet 1 because of his posture.

I met him signing autographs at the stage door of Spamalot. He is easily at least 6'1"

He happened to be at the renaissance festival a few years ago, some people had recognized him with his bodyguard and he was signing autographs, and when we passed by, he was definitely a couple inches taller than I am, and I'm 5'11.

just watch him & Tyra and he looked almost 3" shorter i'll say 2.75" shorter than Tyra. So if Tyra is wearing a 5" heel or those very high 16cm heels that gives 5.3" in height then maybe Tyra was standing 6'3.3" in her heels but still doesnt make sense how he is 2.75" shorter. I think he is a solid 5'11.5" and 0.25" possibility. but 6'0" might be a stretch for him but i would rule it out. Nothing more than 6'0" and nothing less than 5'11.5" for Clay

I met Clay at a publicity event, I'm 6'1 exactly and he appeared identical in height to me.

Clay is every bit of 6'1" tall. To the person that said he wears boots with lifts in them, that is nuts. Most of the time Clay is seen in sandels, now where do you hide the lifts in those? I am 5'8" tall and wear at least a 2" heel and in photos of Clay and myself he is close to four inches taller than me. Trust me, he is not coordinated enough to walk around with lifts on, LOL.

There's a picture of Clay giving Rosie O'Donnell a hug and talking with her on the show last week. She was wearing heels and he was in flat boots. She is 5'6 1/2 without heels and he towered over her. He is at least 6'1"

Looked about 5'11" on Scrubs as "Kenny".
Anna said on 17/Aug/08
I think hes shorter.More like 5'10.5 to 5'11.

6'4" is a stretch for Ruben. I do think Clay is 6'0.5" - 6'1" though.
Jennifer said on 31/Oct/06
Clay is definetly 6'1 No doubt about it.
I am 5'4 and he towers over me. I have the pics to prove it.
He is thin but if you see him in real life it is obvious that he is tall.

I met Clay on a number of occasions. I am 5'10" and I had small heals on my sandals and Clay was taller in than me by a couple of inches. He is definately 6'1" easy. I have a couple of pictures of myself with him and he is taller than me and that doesn't happen that often with guys standing next to me.
Kris said on 30/Oct/06
I met Clay in Salt Lake City last November, and I am 5'9 in flat shoes. He hugged me. Trust me, he is tall. 6'1 easy.
Tommy said on 10/Jun/06
I dont think Clay Aiken is more than 6'0. Didnt you see the American idol 2006 final, When Michael Sendecki was about to sing a Clay Aiken song, and he stood next to Ryan Seacrest and Ryan is 5'9 and that Sendecki guy looked a little shorter than Ryan, and when he started to sing clay aiken came out and he also stood next to him, and he looked not more than 1 inch taller, so he should be somewghere between 5'10 to 6'0

If it makes any difference, there is no way Ruben is 6'4". He is pictured here with 6'1" Freddie Prinze Jr and a slouching 6'3" Matthew Lillard.

honestly, i'm surprised to know the truth that clay is that tall! Somehow... maybe it's just because he's thin, so i never imagine that he's 6'1". Well, his height makes me happy anyway, because he becomes more than just best in my eyes! hahaha

im sure he is 6'1 why would he lie. not everyone is Obsessed With Height.

I saw Clay at Leno and his shinbone looked at least 10-15 cm longer than his femur. Which is, well, against nature...If a person is sitting down, with crossed legs, the thigh should always look longer. He had the exact same black laced boots that so many male celebreties wear. That is so sad, couldn´t they at least make more than one model of hightening shoes? Always look at the boots and soon enough you will learn to recognize them. And also observe how their ankle seems to be placed too far up the leg. As if they had an extra joint or something.

i met clay aiken about a year ago and he was a lot taller than i am. I'm 5'4, so i'd say he's at least 6 feet, probably around 6'1.

Kim lol I said he's probably this tall after reading that especially if u said to me ...
Kim said on 24/Oct/05
Geez! Of course he's 6'1" tall. It's not like it's something he could lie about & get away with it).
Bigg said on 18/Jul/05
well I read somewhere when Clay was being interviewed and someone asked "are people surprised you are 6"1 when they see you? and he responded like (laughing) and was like yeah all the time! he was like people probably thought I was short because because I stood next to ruben and he's 6"4.
Bigg said on 1/Jul/05
he looks more like 5"11 to me at times(and his hair is pretty spiked up maybe witht the hair just doesn't look 6"1 to me) so ruben wouldn't be 6"4 maybe 6"2 3/4 if clay isn't 6"1 I don't know... then but they may be taking there heights with there shoes on or rounding up or maybe both..who really knows

deth row pimp said on 29/Apr/05

On a recent Regis and Kelly episode (I just love judging heights by this show!) Kelly remarked "I always forget how tall Clay is!", Regis remarked "Yep, he's a big boy!". Well to those two everyone must seam like a giant, as Regis looks about 5'6" at best these days, and Kelly is 5'4" on a good day. While Clay may not be THAT big, he definately looks a solid 6'1", I know he's thin, but he truely does look fairly tall. I'm not sure if he's standing on a step in this shot, but he looks to be towering over (supposedly 6'1") Jimmy Kimmel. Clay being elevated or not, Kimmel never has looked 6'1" and if we could get a look at the footing in that shot, it may well prove it. Aiken looks nothing more than 3 inches shorter than Ruben.
