David tall guy with perfect posture. I've seen video from "Harry Potter" premiere when David Hasselhoff meet Magich Johnson and difference wasn't big, maybe 3 inches.
Chameleon said on 21/Mar/11
Big guy 6'4 for sure.
James said on 16/Mar/11
He actually looks bigger than 6'4 compared to otunga but still though with cameron he doesn't look the full 6'4.

Maybe he lost 1cm of height since his WWE appearence?
Viper said on 3/Mar/11
Hoff is still a legit 6-4, imo. Had he stood with Batista he would have been 2 inches taller than that 6-2 dude.
Vegas said on 3/Mar/11
well he was on wwe raw last year and looked every bit of 6'4 and his shoes were not that big either, here with david otunga (whom i have met and got a photo with), i pinned otunga at approx 5'11 maybe a hair under in person, hoff looks taller next to otunga than batista in this clip Click Here
Shaun said on 2/Mar/11
I see about a 2.5 inch difference between Cameron and Hoff....
Shaun said on 2/Mar/11
I think David Cameron is 6'1". And Hoff looks 2.5-3 inches taller I think.
James said on 28/Feb/11
Looks no more than 6'2 (188cm) with Cameron
Ace said on 27/Feb/11
I think he has lost some height recently. He only looks 2 inches taller max than 6'0.5 David Cameron:

Vegas said on 27/Feb/11
wades a measured 6'3.75 barefoot actually, he is leaning in that photo though Click Here

there is another shot of hasselhoff from that shoot, looks at a good 5 inches shorter than ~6'9 measured alonzo mourning
Anonymous1 said on 27/Feb/11
WTF? Guy? It's famous basketball player Dwyane Wade who was measured barefoot at 6'3.5
James said on 26/Feb/11
how tall is the guy in anonymous's photo?

6'3 (191cm) today is possible as well.
ChuckB said on 23/Feb/11
I think 6'3.5" or 6'4" in Knightrider, Baywatch. About 6'3" - 6'3.5" now. He is a very tall man.

6'3.5 (192cm) now
6'4 (193cm) peak
James said on 15/Feb/11
Rob do you think David Haselhoff could be 192cm today? i remember seeing a picture of him and david cameron in the sun or news of the world and there only looked 2.5 between them.

[Editor Rob: 1cm loss is possible]
john said on 10/Feb/11
hasselhoff looks 6'3 next to david cameron who looks 6ft 1
James said on 9/Feb/11
Hasselhoff with David cameron is looking 6'3.
James said on 4/Feb/11
Yeah I agree he really is one of the genuine 6'4 guys but still just a shade shorter than tim robbins.
Shaun said on 22/Jan/11
Click Here

This is how a genuine 6 ft 4 looks.

I'd agree that his build is perfect. Long legs and a broad but still slender upper body.
BabyBaby said on 6/Jan/11
He's super tall. He makes other tall people look average or short. 6'4" is not a stretch.
Actionlover said on 3/Jan/11
Well, that's a perfect height for a man don't you think? Doesn't need to discuss his height. Perfect male height!
James said on 12/Dec/10
I think he was defenintly a solid 6'4 at his peak. 192cm is not impossible today.
Bon said on 8/Dec/10
Solid 6'3 at peak, 192 cm is fine.
Vegas said on 27/Nov/10
"I am suprsied really that he is only lost a tiny fraction of height considering taller people loose height faster as they age yet he has not even lost a full half inch yet."


where is the proof that taller people lose height faster??

kareem is 63 and looks to have lost barely anything Click Here

bill russell is 76 and looks to have lost barely anything Click Here

my uncle is 73, the tallest member of my mothers family and he hasn't lost anything, he is still taller than i am
Bass Armstrong said on 25/Nov/10
Well, Hasselhoff was a strong 6'4" in his younger days, I really think that he could hit 6'5" in the morning. Nowadays he might be a shade below that mark.

1.98 is 6foot 6 inches.
1.93, 95max
James said on 28/Oct/10
1.98 is laughing gas.
sid said on 5/Jul/09
Hasslehoff I can believe is 6'4..he towers over everyone in his movies and shows... 6'4 is right
Hugh 190cm said on 24/Jun/09
Weak 6ft5 peak and Strong 6ft4 now.
James said on 20/Jun/09
Just saw Americas Got Talent and yes I think a weak 6'4 nowadays.
Big King said on 11/Jun/09
Hasselhoff could look 6'3.5" nowadays. He's really a weak 6'4" today.
vikr09 said on 6/Jun/09
From Knight Rider to Baywatch/Baywatch Nights and through the many movies in which he's been seen, The Hoff has invariably struck me as a solid 6 ft 4 bloke barefoot. I'd afford him at least a firm 1.92 metres sans any footwear on. The listing of 1.93 metres here therefore seems fully in concordance with what gets perceived as David's real height, and is probably veridical.
boswell said on 22/May/09
David Hasselhoff is another person I've been next to because of my work (security). I'm 5' 8" and he is much taller. 6' 4" sounds right to me.
Randi said on 10/May/09
I just saw David Hasselhoff today as I was leaving a restaurant in Malibu and was surprised to see how tall he is!!! I was guessing 6'4" but I mean 6'5" doesn't seem totally off either, he is truly a big guy!
Vittal said on 4/May/09
Yeah David is 6'4".
Big King said on 27/Apr/09
I also think that Hasselhoff could hit 6'4.5" in his younger days. Maybe he was tired of saying that a half and has shaved a half inch off by claiming 6'4".
samson said on 17/Apr/09
david hasselhoff maybe 6'3 , and with boots like he wore in night rider -6'5
how tall was the older man his boss in night rider?
Doug said on 10/Apr/09
Yeah John Leslie was a legit 6'5" certainly and he looked more like a Tim Robbins in height than Hasselhoff. 6'4" is about right then although 194cm is not impossible at peak anyway.
Anonymous said on 10/Apr/09
Sounds like you occasionally stray into an alternative dimension Jenny where the Hoff gets changed in a phone booth. Interesting thought though. Even at his most defined I doubt Hasselhoff's build could compare to Reeve's in the slightest.
Jenny said on 10/Apr/09
for me 6'4" - 6'5" is a good actor especially in Superman role. Though he's not younger, He still could be the older version of superman if ever they wanna make that kind of movie where supes can be old, He's the perfect fit for that role.
I'm still thinking he's better as superman if he's a lil' bit younger.
Anonymous said on 4/Apr/09
Im not sure where this 6ft 5" is coming from. I remember him being interviewed on the set of Baywatch, somewhere back in the mid 90's by a British TV Presenter called John Leslie, Leslie was 6ft 5" and was clearly taller than Hasselhoff. Id give him 6ft 4 but nothing over that.
Big King said on 30/Mar/09
On one of his official websites his height is written as 196cm (6'5"): Click Here

That surprizes me. Maybe Hasselhoff could hit 6'5" or 196cm with shoes and a strong 6'4" barefoot in the evening. Remarkable is that Hasselhoff towered only 5 inches over 5'10" Adam Sandler in one of his films.
Doug said on 22/Mar/09
David Chokachi who played Cody is listed at 5'11" and the Hoff always made him look like a little boy. Hoff always had at least 6 inches on him. Personally I think Chokachi is nearer 5'9" he has never looked above this and the Hoff is a solid 6'4" barefoot.
Big King said on 18/Mar/09
Doug, it could be that Hasselhoff was 6'4.5" at his peak.
Doug said on 16/Mar/09
Hasselhoff was taller than Hulk Hogan Big King. He has nearer 3 inches on guys listed at 6'2". A lot of people, Pamela Anderson included claim he is 6'5". I have no idea how you got the impression he doesn't look tall.
Doug said on 16/Mar/09
Big King? Hasselhoff is actually one of those guys where 6'4" is a likely BARE MINIMUM. Most people would agree here he was close to 6'5" peak like Jeff Goldblum. Hasselhoff is actually a perfect example of a legit 6'4". Did you not see him in flip flops in Baywatch standing only an inch or two under the height of door frames??
Big King said on 2/Mar/09
I saw Hasselhoff several times in films now and he doesn't look tall enough to list him at 6'4" in my opinion.
Doug said on 23/Feb/09
Sorry for the delay James. Yes I thought Goldblum looked taller. Yes I saw Eastwood standing next to Reagan and I've since Stallone standing next to Reagan. If Stallone is only 5'9" regardless of monster lifts there is no way Eastwood was 6'4". Eastwood looked about 6'3" max next to Reagan it has to be said and Reagan had lost height by the late 80s. Same with Arnie, Eastwood never looked the full 6'4" in comparison. 6'3" max I thought. Hasselhoff, well we've seen him barefoot or in flip flops countless times on Baywatch and in my view looked easily 6'4", nearer 6'5" on occasions.
Doug said on 9/Feb/09
Exactly James, Hasselhoff, Neeson, Goldblum and Robbins (and Christopher Lee one of my favourites) are perfect examples of legit 6'4" ers most of them have given off an appearance of near 6'6" in shoes at times. 6'4.5" peak is not out of question for any of them, Robbins in my view looks nearer 6'5". I can't see Sutherland peak over 6'3" barefoot he just never looked as tall as those mentioned above, Eastwood either. I think he was 6'3" peak max, 6'4" in shoes. A true 6'4" barefoot is pretty huge it has to be said.
imoen-mania said on 8/Feb/09
Certainly not as tall as Sarevok Anchev. few people are.
Click Here
Doug said on 6/Feb/09
BTW legit barefoot 6'4" guys can often given an impression of 6'6", most of the time they stand at least 6'5" in shoes in the same way that 6'2.75" guys like Eastwood have always looked 6'4" in shoes.
Elf said on 17/Jan/09
Pamela Anderson claimed he was 6'5". I'd give him a strong 6'4" barefoot, 6'5" in normal shoes. I guess though when you're that height you don't need the "two Hollywood inches".
ichiban said on 5/Jan/09
I would give the Hoff near 6'5'' at his prime. In metric 195 cm tall, his prolly shrunk 1 or 2 cm and is still a solid 6'4'' or 193 cm tall.
USC student said on 29/Dec/08
Im 6'2 even and met him, easy 6'4 on hoff
Viper said on 14/Dec/08
Hasselhoff had an inch at least on Hogan.
littleguy said on 12/Dec/08
Ola if you think Hogan was 6'4 in his prime check him out standing in front of andre the giant at wrestlemania 3 that would have made him 6'7 at least
Ronster. said on 8/Dec/08
Does anyone realize that Hasselhoff was walking on a platform and Hogan was not? Ever heard of uneven pavement or floors?
Jay lee said on 26/Nov/08
He is right on 6'4. No doubt about that.
Leo said on 25/Nov/08
Saw him in Sydney 3 years ago, 6ft 4 tall - very slender and fantastic posture.
Ted said on 14/Nov/08
yeah 6'4 alright. I met him, towered over most people.
Big King said on 5/Nov/08
Well, only a half inch doesn't tell a real difference between two humans but Hasselhoff was a strong 6'4" in his prime.
Gunther said on 24/Oct/08
I've met him ten years ago, I am 6'2'' and he seemed to me about as tall as my brother who is 6'4.5''
Big King said on 25/Sep/08
I know, Hugh.
Hugh said on 20/Sep/08
Dave was closer to 6ft5 at his peak.
Viper said on 12/Sep/08
He still looks 6-4 to me.
Big King said on 9/Sep/08
Is there a possibility to make a new photo where Rob stands beside Hasselhoff? I don't think that Hasselhoff looks 6'4" nowadays. Maybe 6'3 1/2". I'm sure that his height was at least 6'4" in his prime.
Big King said on 7/Sep/08
There was a photo where Hasselhoff didn't look eight inches taller than Glenn.
Big King said on 4/Sep/08
lol "handsome and talented", what a 6'4" tall clown...
runt said on 21/Aug/08
finally a guy who claims an accurate height. I can imagine on these boards how much he would get beat up for wearing dodgey footwear if he claimed 6-6
Daii said on 8/Aug/08
What a cocky ass, "handsome and talented"

but yeah hes probably every bit of 6'4
Mr. R said on 5/Aug/08
Am I the only one old enough on this list who remembers David as Dr. Snapper Foster on The Young and the Restless? He towered above everybody else in the cast!

Dwarf said on 18/May/08
Hasselhoff was almost 6'5" in his heydays and today he is 6'4".
Vegas said on 24/Apr/08
if hasselhoff is truly 6'4 barefoot, those cowboy boots would make him ~6'6, the smallest cowboy boots add 1.8 inches to height and they look slightly bigger than the average size
Vegas said on 22/Apr/08
here are the big cowboy boots hasselhoff is wearing in photo with hogan Click Here a close of of a similar pair of his cowboy boots that he so loves Click Here
Karracho said on 21/Apr/08
Well, Hogan was 6'6" or 6'7" in his heydays but today he is at least 6'4". I would give Hogan 6'4 1/2" and David Hasselhoff looks a good 6'5" to me. I also heard that he once claimed his height as 6'5" on an interview. Can someone please give me a source for that?
Anonymous KinG said on 20/Apr/08
Hasselhoff is a solid 6ft4.. if people does believe his 6ft5.. Tim Robbin would be like 6ft6..
Mephisto said on 20/Mar/08
Yes, by a half inch there is hardly a big difference. And I'm 6'6" by the way. I don't know a famous tall celebrity who has my height, maybe Michael Jordan. The only famous tall celebrities above 6'6" are Hulk Hogan and David Prowse. Both were around 6'6" to 6'7" in their heydays. A snitch taller than me, I guess.
Mephisto said on 18/Mar/08
The favourite heights where tall celebrities are listed are 6'4" and 6'5" because these famous people have a habit on downgrading their heights from 6'6" to 6'5" or 6'4". Less celebrities are listed above 6'5". Well, Hasselhoff seems to be a nearly 6'5" tall guy but 6'4 1/2" sounds right for him. I'm so glad that I'm over 6'5" anyway.
Metalmaniac said on 15/Mar/08
Yet again these guys who only claim 6-4 because they, like so many others, think that 6`4" is a perfect height! It`s tall but not too tall like maybe 6-5 could be. So he only claims 6-4 while in reality he is a legit 6-5.
Souler said on 14/Mar/08
Yes because David doesn't bother stretching his back. I would give Hasselhoff 6'4 1/2" or even 6'5" because he really looks that tall. 6'4" is undermeasured and we could also say that Hasselhoff is 6'4" at least.
Souler said on 12/Mar/08
And why is Hasselhoff's height written as 6'5" on his official website? I'm telling ya, David is 6'5".
Cassi said on 3/Mar/08
Yes but I recognized that Hasselhoff looked taller than Hulk Hogan on a photo. If Hasselhoff is 6'4", then Hogan has to be 6'3" or what? David is 6'5" and Hogan could be 6'3 1/2" at least.
Schnouzer Breath said on 3/Mar/08
yeah, 6-4 tops, i'd say closer to 6-3 after seeing him in person last week, maybe my heighth of 191 cm.
Rona said on 29/Feb/08
Yes he is 6'5" god damn it! I don't know why no website describes his height as 6'5" except his homepage?! 6'4" is undermeasured or maybe Hasselhoff took his afternoon height.
Schnouzer Breath said on 28/Feb/08
saw him today at the "America Is Got Talent" thingy in the ATL and he was around my heighth (I.M. 6-3.5 so 6-4 sounds right about 'ya).

Hey, just to say its possible to grow after 20, i'm ethnically indian indian but my roots are from Trinidad and i was born im England, maybe better diet helped lol as my mums 5ft 3 and dad 5ft 9. At 20 i was 6ft 1 exactly and last time i got measured (25) i was 6ft 2 and a little, same doctor same height thingy :) I agree with posters who say he dosen't look massive in Knight Rider, i always thought he was average 5 10ish when i was growing up, only lately when i saw pictures of him now i can see how big he really is.
supes78 said on 23/Feb/08
That last time he was on the Tonight Show, he said he was 6'4" tall.

I met him when I was four. I was at his concert and asked him for an autograph and he said no. I don't remember his height, but I do remember crying.

Hasselhoff's official website (Click Here) claims that he is 6'5" and he really looks that tall.
anonymous said on 23/Jan/08
i always thought he was 6`3ish, but after watching some baywatch episodes, i firmly stand at 6`4, perhaps even taller. Viper, you were right all along. he is 6`4 bare minimum
Colton said on 23/Jan/08
Yeah its no uncommon to grow after 20 most males stop at 25 i think Dennis rodman basketball player was 5 11 at 20 years old and shot up to 6 foot 8 so u can never tell how tall someone is gonna be.

"I thought he was 6'7 when I first saw him in Baywatch!:O He looked awfully tall, but thats because almost every other actor was short on that show.:P"

He looked 6-5-6-6 at times on Knight Rider. I guess you could argue he is the tallest looking actor on tv in the last 25 years or so.
Max said on 24/Oct/07
I saw him in germany awhile back, I'm 6'5" and had an inch on him so 6'4" sounds right.

6´4" sounds o.k. He is always quite taller than all the men around him.

My dad saw him in Tahoe about fifteen years ago. He is 6'2.75" and said that Hasselhoff had around an inch on him. 6'4" is close enough.
anonymous said on 21/Aug/07
rob, is it perhaps possible that he has lost a little bit of height? the man isn't young anymore, and he really did look like he was 6'3.5 when i saw him. also, next to piers, he is no more than 2-2.5 inches taller?
anonymous said on 20/Jun/07
The Undertaker, i am about 6`3 (a little under) and he was certainly taller than me. however, a full inch and a quarter taller i am not certain, but he is not less than 6`3. probably 6`4.
Viper said on 19/Jun/07
It seems like hes taller than everyone in hollywood.
dmeyer said on 19/Jun/07
he walked by me from distance is pretty imposing about 6'4
Mr. R said on 10/Jun/07
I saw him and his family (pre drunken hamburger eating period) at a concert a few years ago. He is definitely pretty close to 6'4".

My friend, who is 5'11", saw him last week at the LA Courthouse, and remarked about how he was sooooo tall.
Viper said on 9/Jun/07
Hasselhoff went back to back with Conan and had an inch on him. So 6-4 for Hasselhoff and 6-3 for Conan.
The Undertaker said on 9/Jun/07
He's probably 6'3". Shoes give you added height.

anonymous said on 9/May/07
he does look pretty big. not quite 6`4 there, but that is easily posture.
anonymous said on 7/May/07
he always looked a legit 6`4 to me, but it does get me wondering.
5'11.5 guy said on 5/May/07
Maybe a little over 6'4 and rounds down.
anonymous said on 1/May/07
he is consistently looking in the 6`3 -6`4.5 range. i have seen him look shorter (and taller) before. but as viper said, he looked taller in nightrider.
Franco said on 1/May/07
looks 6'5

so 6'4 barefooted is right, maybe even 6'3.5
Viper said on 25/Apr/07
I bet you could squeeze a half inch at any age If you had extreme tip toe like posture for years. Look at Sly Stallone.
Anonymous said on 25/Apr/07
its not that uncommon to grow after 20 for a male
Leonid said on 24/Apr/07
Wow.... how do you squeeze in an inch after 20... natural growth or great posture and stretching?
glenn said on 24/Apr/07
so did i.i squeezed in an inch.
Viper said on 23/Apr/07
I grew some after 20 actually.
Leonid said on 22/Apr/07
Hey Viper are you and Viper652 the same person? I recall Viper652 saying he's 6'2.5" and you say that you are 6'3", just wondering how you managed to gain half an inch in your 20's.

I'm also 6'3" but I stopped growing at 16. I pretty much reached my final height at 14, and between 14 to 16 I added 2 - 2.5 inches and stopped from there, what was your growth like?
Viper said on 10/Apr/07
How could you hate the intro music to Knight rider? Its as classic as it gets. I was born in 80 and I remember watching the show as a little kid. It ran from 82-86. And how in the world is it so old style?
AAAA said on 9/Apr/07
here he is with sandler.... Click Here

on the 6'5-6'6, didn't they have him in beatle boots as part of his night rider outfit. That wouldprobably be why, but I can't imange he needed to look anya taller.
l0ck n l0ad said on 9/Apr/07
Hahaha Viper and anonymous you guys made me laugh :-)
Look, I was born in '84 and Knight Rider series are from '82... the show is way before I was born. I only got to see it for the first time about a year or two ago on the Star World channel with their cheap re-runs of old shows. I didn't say Knight Rider sucks or anything like that, I just said it wasn't to my taste just like almost any show from the 80's, it just seems to old style and everything too old fashioned to my liking. Just the intro music to Knight Rider gave me a headache everytime... Altho probably if I was born in the '70s and watched Knight Rider while growing up when it was originally playing, perhaps I would see that TV show as a 'bad ass' as well :P. I like old westerns from the '60s even tho those been made way way before I was born but Knight Rider just doesn't do it for me.... haha end of story, just wanted to clear things up so any Knight Rider fans here will not get offended as it was not my intention.

Anyway back to the main subject David Hasselhoff looks a solid 6'4", even tho I firmly believe he's a 6'4", I said he *looks* (but I know he's 6'4") more 6'2ish on Knight Rider is perhaps on Knight Rider he's very thin and I'm used to seeing him in his later years when he's more developed with more meat on him and broader which attributes even more to his height imho.

Peace out
Brad said on 1/Apr/07
I saw him in Las Vegas last week....same as I saw him in '85 at Universal: 6' 4". Knight Rider rocks.
anonymous said on 30/Mar/07
Lock, if you think that show was boring, than you seriously need help. Besides, he looked 6`4 almost all of the time. Ocasionally shorter though. likely cinematographies fault ;)
Viper said on 21/Mar/07
Hasselhoff always looked 6-4 on Knight Rider, and on a couple of occasions did look closer to 6-6. I attribute it to footwear and camera angles. He never looked as short as 6-2, at least not to me. Also lock, how could you hate Knight Rider? That show was badass in its day, and still cool to watch now.
l0ck n l0ad said on 20/Mar/07
To all the people here who say that Dave looked 6'5 - 6'6 in Knight Rider I just don't get you!
As much as I hate that TV programme it used to be everyday on Star World channel at an hour that there was nothing better to watch on other channels so I got to see a lot of episodes and I don't know why he just looks there like a scrawny 6'2" guy.

Don't get me wrong I firmly believe that Dave is a full 6'4", but on Knight Rider he just didn't seem that tall to me but rather just tallish and scrawny.

Anyway lucky him, 6'4" is an awesome height and besides that he's rich and handsome, all the ladies love Hasselhoff LOL

And for anonymous guy commenting on Bob Spencer he was a former professional swimminer in his youth, they measured him at 194cm, I can't see him under 193cm in his youth. Funny he used to be such a thin and fit guy in his swimmer days and he just turned freaking fat slob, altho I noticed he still mantained the V-shape physique with huge lats thanks to his professional swimming training back in the days. Swimming does wonders to your body!

Robert said on 17/Feb/07
I have heard about actors or singers who are shorter in person than in movies, but that definitely does not apply to David Hasselhoff, because he really looks like being around 6-4.
hb45 said on 22/Jan/07
David Hasselhoff is definitely 6'4" (193cm), no doubt about that. I've watched many episods of Knightrider, and he's really a giant, towering over everybody in this TV series. When he wears his high heeled boots, he looks even taller, like 6'6". Nightrider was one of my favorite TV series when I was young, back at the end of the 80's.

Y'know, Hoff gets hate and jokes from lots of folks, but you have to admit he is one tall, baddass, handsome man! Hop in his car, yo!
Viper said on 18/Dec/06
That is true, Im conflicting myself here some. I dont know. Conan really does look 6-2ish a lot of the time. Hasselhoff just looks 6-4 most of the time to me. Cant explain it.
Glenn said on 17/Dec/06
He is 6-4 cause thats what I saw many times.and your right Viper.
Jason said on 14/Dec/06
Glenn is right. A guy I know who's a full 6'4'' bare foot sometimes wears lifts to look 6'6''. He also dons one of those tall Russian fur hats in the colder months to look even taller on top of that ... lol. I've never asked why. Many bouncers who are friggin' tall to begin with also wear lifts. Hasselhoff does look 6'4'' but you never know.
Glenn said on 16/Nov/06
Anthony-I heard certain people,Id rather not get into here,that are imposing to begin with,where lifts to their 6-2 frames.and it isnt bodygaurds.maybe they do too.
Viper652 said on 16/Nov/06
He can look taller than 6-4 at times. Hmm, maybe he does wear some enhanced footwear.
Anthony said on 15/Nov/06
Doesn't Segal wear massive cowboy boots despite being 6'4 barefoot already? And I'm willing to bit Michael Clark Duncan wears lifts because he always looks like a 6'5 guy in movies but in reality is closer to 6'3. Glenn, what other tall people do you know wear lifts?

Oh, and The Hoff definitely looks 6'4?
Glenn said on 15/Nov/06
Tall people do wear lifts.I know for a fact.
Viper652 said on 14/Nov/06
Cantstop, Hasselhoff appears taller than 6-4 next to Adam Sandler. Does he wear lifts?
Viper652 said on 9/Nov/06
You know, Hasselhoff looks 6-6 with that famous picture of him and Gary Coleman.
Viper652 said on 7/Nov/06
He doesnt look 6-3 at all. He looks 6-4 minimum and sometimes taller.
Viper652 said on 3/Nov/06
Rutabert could be generally serious If he saw some guy who looked like him.
Mikex said on 15/Oct/06
Definitely 6'4'' at least. He does across as arrogant but also can laught at himself. This reminds me a bit of Willian Shatner, arrogant but at the same time likeable.
Danimal said on 13/Oct/06
He's taller than Conan Obrien.
Day Rider said on 13/Oct/06
Viper652 watch and see for yourself if you have access to the old episodes, Maybe the doors are around 6'6 I won't bother commenting again with the replies you get on here.
Anonymous said on 12/Oct/06
Glenn did Hoff ask you to jump into his car?
Viper652 said on 12/Oct/06
If hes only an inch shorter than the top of a door in flip flops, then he is closer to 6-8, lol.
Day Rider said on 11/Oct/06
The Hoff is 6'4 minimum look at him on old episodes of Baywatch on UK Gold. His head is an inch at most off the top of the doors in Baywatch Headquarters and he is wearing flip flops. That is overwhelming proof he is 6'4 or more surely.
Robert said on 10/Oct/06
6'0-6-1 at best is ridiculous for that guy,Rutabert.
he looks 6-4 to me, but in case he is shorter, then he is no way shorter than 6-3.he really looks huge
Viper652 said on 5/Oct/06
I doubt you saw the real David Hasselhoff Rutabert.
Rutabert said on 4/Oct/06
There is no way on earth he is that tall! I would guess 6`0-6`1 at best. I once met him on the street. Now i am 6`4, and he was significantly shorter than me.
Glenn said on 4/Oct/06
Always nice to me and even talked to him on the phone a few times.
Viper652 said on 4/Oct/06
Crazy, I remember getting a knight rider toy car at Toys R' Us.
Danimal said on 4/Oct/06
Met the guy when I was a kid at Toys R Us. He was shaking everyone's hand and my 2 sisters went crazy over him. This was during his knight rider days.
Viper652 said on 2/Oct/06
Yes George, the guy looked 6-5-6-6 at times on Knight Rider.
George H said on 2/Oct/06
He comes across as one of the most ego inflated people in showbiz, but in his Knightrider days especially he looked every inch of 6'4". Maybe because he was quite scrawny then and didn't have to suck in his stomach yet to look fit, rofl.
But I do remember he wore sort of cowboy boots in that series, didn't he?
Viper652 said on 2/Oct/06
Interesting. Never met the man but he has always looked 6-4 minimum to me.
Andrew said on 30/Sep/06
I am not to sure that he is 6`4. I once got the honor of meeting him on the street and asked for his autograph. I was walking with my 6`4 dad, and he did not look like he was quite at my dad's height. I would say that he is closer to 6,2-6,3.
Gonzalo said on 22/Sep/06
I always thought he was at least 6`4 and maybe a little bit over.
miyuki said on 13/Sep/06
pic above looks 189.. must be standing posture problem..
Danimal said on 6/Sep/06
Met the man when he was giving a signing a few years back. He's at least 6'4".
Viper652 said on 6/Sep/06
I admit, he could look taller than 6-4 sometimes on Knight Rider. But in most pictures and events he looks 6-4.
Robert said on 5/Sep/06
he really looks like 6 ft 4, because he towered over everyone on Knight Rider.
Viper652 said on 17/May/06
How tall is Styles then, 6-7-6-7.5??
JT said on 15/May/06
Hasselhoff is wearing a good size heel in that clip cantstop25 posted, and he still looks 3 inches shorter than Styles.
D.J. said on 14/May/06
Dave is leaning a bit to his left if you notice. He's definitely no less than 6'4".
beaner said on 11/May/06
IMO, Hasselhoff floatationed between 6'3.5" and 6'4" when hurdled up next to Styles, even though they were crouching slightly.
cantstop25 said on 6/May/06
here he is in this clip with "6'6" ryan stiles"

Click Here

though I think stiles is taller then 6'6"
Frank2 said on 5/May/06
David's basically a nice guy. I knew him going back to when he tested for the role of Michael Knight in Knight Rider. I worked on the early presentation that was used to pre-sell that series. Then the pilot was shot. This is very unusual method to say the least. The network was hot for the idea so it was pre-sold. Hasselhoff was nice to everyone he worked with. I can't relate on how he treats the public or his fans. I know he's big in Europe, especially in Germany as a singing star.
mcfan said on 5/May/06
He only looks 6'4. How tall is Glenn...5'7.5?
Viper652 said on 4/May/06
6-2 for Hasselhoff is the craziest thing I have ever heard. The guy can look taller then 6-4 half the time. And Frank, you worked on knight rider?? Thats pretty cool. What did you do on the show??
Bleemo said on 4/May/06
What where your impressions of him Frank/Glenn? I heard he had a bad rep in general.
Glenn said on 4/May/06
He is possibly 6-4.5.
J-Dog said on 4/May/06
Hasselhoff is most likely 6'4.5" he has never looked below 6'4" ever, I think people need to refrain from their instincts to downgrade everyone based on absolutely nothing but sheer wishful thinking.
Frank2 said on 4/May/06
This IS giving me a headache! I worked on Knight Rider. Hasselhoff is a solid 6'4".
leonari said on 4/May/06
Sam please: Hasselhoff at 6'2".Come on the guy looks huge everywhere!!! 6'4" minimum!!!!
sam said on 3/May/06
Look at his ex Cathrine Hickland at 5'5". He is maybe 8-9 inches taller. He is 6'2".
Anonymous said on 9/Apr/06
correct me if im wrong however isnt it 5 inches from the eye to the top of the head. Which would make david 6'3" (add an inch for slouching)

cant see him being anything above this
András said on 6/Mar/06
Hy I have seen him in a shopping ceter and he was just a few inch shorter than me.(I'm 6'7)
Jake said on 5/Mar/06
David is an honest 6'4".
Rut said on 5/Mar/06
Hasselhoff was tall alright and is still tall, but never 1.95m
I think his claimed 1.93m is enough..
Richard said on 22/Feb/06
I don't think he had 3 inches on Bud Spencer. Bud is bending his head a lot and even though he's been billed as 6'4.5 I've always thought Bud looked more like 6'3. Maybe he's 6'2 in that pic with Hasselhoff due to having shrunk with age. He's born 1929 and still looks like a big guy.
phil said on 21/Feb/06
I met Hasselhoff in 1987 at the opening of a Toys "R" Us store. I was working as a manager at the time. My best friend of the past 25 years is exactly 6'4" tall. Hasselhoff was wearing cowboy boots that day and he was at least 6'4", maybe 6'5" tall in 1987.
mask said on 31/Jan/06
Hey Rob this is a photo from 1989 italian tv show "I Telegatti" where every year italian artists and actors receive a prize from foreign actors.In this photo there are Bud Spencer and David Hasselhoff:
Bud Spencer alias Carlo Pedersoli is an italian swimmer turned actor in 1967 and his height was said to be 194 cm(6'4 1/2") but probably with the age he shrunk a bit.Anyway in 1989 Bud was 60 and Hoff was 37 and at least 3" taller than Bud.I don't know the exact height of Bud Spencer but I'm sure that David was at least 6'4" in 1989 maybe a tad under nowadays.
Glenn said on 22/Jan/06
dont remember if seagal had boots on,but he wears them.
cantstop25 said on 21/Jan/06
seagal looks a lot taller if you campare the two pictures wiht glen

[Editor Rob: maybe Seagal has boots on...he sometimes wears those things]
Greg said on 19/Jan/06
He's at least 6'4". Just saw an episode of Knight Rider where he was standing next to Edward Mulhare(who's 6'2" or 3"), and David towers over him.
Mr. R said on 22/Nov/05
I saw David last year at a concert in Hollywood, and he is still 6-4. He may have been a little taller when he did the soap opera, as he towered over everybody.
Viper652 said on 22/Nov/05
Ok, Ive been noticing David's eight in old knight rider movies and even today looking at pics of him in the past couple of years and on talk show clips. I would still bet he is in the 6-4 range, but it wouldnt surprise me at all If he is really 6-5 to 6-6 even. He can look extremely tall at times.
kenneth patrickson said on 18/Nov/05
he has beem shrunk by 1 or 2cm for what i know his no longer 6"4.8(1.94)tall.. trust me..
Viper652 said on 10/Nov/05
I think David is just 6-4. No downplaying
rr said on 10/Nov/05
Normally, make actors wont downplay their heights, but if they are over 6'4", they can afford to do so!
Brett said on 25/Oct/05
Mr hasselhoff was just in sydney for the Arias, I happened to drop my uncle at the airport today , and the Hoff checked in right next to me, I chose to say nothing till my little cousin went running up to him, and I had the opportunity of meeting him. I am 185cm tall and I would say he was about 10cm taller , he seemed abit shorter then a friend of mine who is 199-200cm, as I am below his eyeline just, while hasselhoffs I was above . So I reckon he is about 194-195 odd cm, its hard to tell as I never really looked at his shoes. But he really could be bordering on 6'5", I have no doubt, and I would except claims of more depending on his footwear.
Christoffer Slotte said on 22/Aug/05
I worked at a children's hospital in 1987 that Hasselhoff was visiting. I was very close to him once and he was taller than me (I am 6'1). I would say 6'4 is correct. He didn't seem to be as tall as 6'6.
Mr. R said on 11/Jul/05
When he was on The Young and the Restless in the 70's, he was head and shoulders above everyone, and may have been closer to 6-5. I saw him at a concert last year, and I walked behind him a few times, and he was definitely closer to 6-4.
Anshelm said on 10/Jul/05
Interestingly, Finnish 197 cm (6'5½") tall actor and director Timo Koivusalo claimed to be "exactly as tall as the Knight Rider". He could have been misinformed, of course; but what if they've met? At least Koivusalo's height looks right compared to former Prime Minister Paavo Lipponen (194 cm). Also, I remember that Hasselhoff looked clearly taller than Conan O'Brien, when he was a guest on his show. This was a while ago, so I'm not going to say by how much. But anyway, this could be a rare case of an actor actually rounding down his height!
Mr. R said on 19/Mar/05
I saw him at a concert and he is still standing tall. He is still really close to 6'4".
mask said on 19/Mar/05
I think mr Hasselhoff is about 6'3''now,maybe he was 6'4'' in his heydays
sean t said on 16/Mar/05
Pete I think that is cos Will Smith is closer to 6'1".. Hasselhoff has big hair which makes him appear taller
pete said on 5/Mar/05
He's more like 6ft 6, he was at a premiere, I work at the cinema and he was 4 inches taller than will Smith who is 6'2, and this guy is supposed to have shrunk with age, this is a definite case of rounding down.
