6'4.25" is not enough. John Schneider is listed at 6'3 by rob met in persson few years back and a peak Schneider should be 6'3.25" and look at least 3.5-4cm shorter than Hasselhoff. I would say Hasselhoff is just a weak 6'5 during peak maybe holding around 194.5cm lowest and today he might clear 193cm if standing straight. I would say 194.5cm peak and 193.5cm now at age 65.

With an ego that big I'd expect a bigger claim from him...
Rising - 174 cm said on 25/Sep/17
What?! If I'm not mistaken only 1% of the population grow to be as tall as 6'4". Where is it most men grow to be 6'4"? The NBA?
Anonymous said on 18/Sep/17
This is what most men are like today they grow up to be 6.4.

At least 6'4" prime. He hasn't lost much, but 6'3.75" now may be likely seeing him with 6'2.5" Rock. Actually, as Rob said due to a bit more footwear, 6'3.75" may have even been possible back then as Hoff didn't look much taller than Dolph a year before Rob met Hoff: Click Here Click Here
I think Dolph was still at least a solid 6'3" in 2012, possibly 191 cm, so Hoff is looking around 6'3.75" to me in comparison. Possibly the full 6'4" since Hoff has pretty thin shoes, though Dolph doesn't have thick sneakers by any stretch either.
Del Mar said on 13/Sep/17
Huge head might make him appear slightly shorter
Jani said on 7/Sep/17
Hasselhoff always has looked very tall and seems to be very honest about his height. I would give him just a slight downgrade to 6'3.75" though. Maybe 6'4.25" for peak height.
Canson said on 2/Sep/17
@Berta: Conan has been edged out by one too many 6'4" guys to be a legit 6'4". Conan tops was 192 peak and his thick hair imho made him appear taller. I think 191 peak and he was measured in the morning and he rounded up to 6'4" which is why he said he's 6'4" but he's not. Rob has him over listed here and it is by deduction making guys like Hoff seem above their claims and actual heights. Hoff looks a legit 6'4" at his lowest peak. Looks exactly next to Pamela Anderson or others like Yasmin how my legit 6'4" father would look next to people their size.
Remember lithgow Selleck and Hoff and Haysbert all edged Conan along with Neeson. People assume Neesom because he said 6'4 and a wee bit is 194 at his lowest but remember that could be a morning measurement and he may only be 6'4" at his low as well. Everyone here bell curves these guys around Conan's 6'4" claim which is ridiculous
berta said on 2/Sep/17
he looked 2 cm taller than conan when they stod back to back. very bad angle but ican believe hasselhoff could have been close to 194 peak and conan could have been maybe more of a 192,5 guy and still is. conan looks 193 cm to me but guys like hasselhoff, neeson and goldblum made him look 192 cm
joe### said on 1/Sep/17
Hoff 6´4.25 peak and nowadays 6´3.5
Selleck peak 6´3.75 and nowadays 6´3
Canson said on 31/Aug/17
Doubt it Joe. Hoff is a legit 6'4". Other guys like Larroquette may have been 6'4.25 or .5
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 26/Aug/17
I think he's creeping towards 6'3.5" today because he only had 1.5" on a 6'2" Dwayne Johnson in 2017.
James B said on 22/Aug/17
Got it spot on with claiming 6ft4 but 'handsome' is certainly debatable
Alpha said on 22/Aug/17
Tallet than The rock
movieguy said on 11/Aug/17
A genuine 6'4'' guy like Jeff Goldblum and taller than Clint Eastwood who I know think was a 'Hollywood 6'4''.
6'1.5 said on 9/Aug/17

I meant to say hardy
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 5/Aug/17
Probably not anymore. Might've lost a bit, looks 192cm today.
Canson said on 4/Aug/17
Well said Rob
said on 4/Aug/17
Hey Rob would you say hasselhoff's claim is like tom Harry's (exactly what they claim)
Editor Rob: I think Hoff is a good example of how tall an honest 6ft 4 man in Hollywood is.
RichardSpain said on 2/Aug/17
I think he is still a strong 193 cm o nearly nowadays.
A tall man.
Canson said on 28/Jul/17
Always been a legit 6'4" 193range guy never any taller. People make him taller just because he edges out guys like Conan who really aren't legit 6'4" guys
even said on 20/Jul/17
he says hes 6 foot 4 and he is 6 foot 4
S.J.H said on 18/Jul/17
I feel Hoff will get measure a few mm taller than Jason Momoa. Momoa is more like 6'3.75 not 6'4 and Hoff still look 6'4 but more like a flat 6'4
C. Giant said on 14/Jul/17
Well, I would say that Hasselhoff was a legit 6'5" tall in his younger days and nowadays he might stand 6'4 1/2" tall. At least 6'4" by the way, nowadays.
S.J.H said on 12/Jul/17
Hoff Peak: 195-195.25cm out of bed, 193-193.25cm before bed (Solid 6'4)
Hoff Now: 194.5cm out of bed, 192.5cm before bed
Hoff in a year or more, 191.5cm before bed
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jul/17
Looks 6'3.5" by the time he met Rob but I believe his peak was the full 6'4".
Canson said on 6/Jul/17
@Adam: i don't see what you're saying. He's also leaking
Adam said on 6/Jul/17
Canson, Rob said Hasselhoff stood the same as him and had a footwear advantage.
Canson said on 5/Jul/17
I'm not even convinced he's dipped that much below 6'4" if he stands straight
Dean said on 30/Jun/17
Jordan87 said on 21/Jun/17
6'3" Nowadays at least. His hair gets him right to 6'4.
Canson said on 19/Jun/17
Solid 6'4" peak 193 at his lowest
Didn't quite give impression of a Guy who hits 6'5 upon waking up but didn't give impression below 6'4" at his low.
Peterson188cm said on 17/Jun/17
Mark(5'9.25 said on 15/Jun/17
He would definitely be taller than John Wayne and Clint Eastwood
Canson said on 15/Jun/17
Textbook 6'4 at his peak
Dan said on 15/Jun/17
Unlike John Wayne, Hasselhoff was a legitimate 6'4" at his peak.
said on 9/Jun/17
1 inch 2,54 cm , 1 feet ,30 cm , easy :)
I've seen people use 30cm as a foot and they end up thinking 6ft is 180cm, always use 30.48 or we all end up shorter!
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 9/Jun/17
Peak height: 6'4"/ 193 cm.
Today: 6'3.5/ 192 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/17
I'm guessing 6ft6 range wearing boots in Knight Rider
Adam said on 8/Jun/17
Have a look at Rob's picture with Daniel Naprous (6ft5) and then look at Rob's pic with Hoff and then tell me that Hoff is 6ft5 peak. I don't buy it.
Canson said on 7/Jun/17
World Citizen said on 6/Jun/17
Looks 6 ft 3.5
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Jun/17
I can't believe I haven't comment on David Hasselhoff yet! I used to enjoy 'Knight Rider' very much indeed, though 'Baywatch' is something I never got seriously into. He certainly looked a strong 6ft4 on 'Knight Rider', possibly 6ft4.5 even.
When he was a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent' a few years ago and he would stand up to applaud, he didn't look any shorter to be quite honest! His posture is good still nowadays, so I'm settling for 6ft4 for him!
Interestingly, his singing career really took off - in Germany! I can't remember any of his songs and when I went to Germany his career hadn't even taken off then! Some of my (7 - all male cousins) might be familiar with his hits, but they were more into stuff like the 'Rolling Stones' from what I can remember!
Canson said on 3/Jun/17
@Jervis: it's because he looks a real 6'4" that prob woke to 195 and was not less than 193 at his low. And he was well proportioned. Not a guy who is 6'4" out of bed or 6'4.25 and 6'3 and change at night. They make 6'4" look smaller than it really is
Adam said on 2/Jun/17
Well if Hoff was 195,5 peak, Conan would have been an easy 193 (6'4") peak. If you have a look at most every other clip over the years where Hoff was a guest of Conan and where they meet on stage, eye to eye, they seem to be about the same height. It was only when they went back to back that Hoff seemed to edge Conan. Sorry I don't buy almost 196 for Hoff peak. When he performed with Ryan Stiles (6'6"), Stiles stood behind him and looked over his head. Stiles could have put his chin on Hoff's head (if memory serves, did in fact). In the above picture with Rob, I don't believe Hoff had lost much since peak, if any. Yet, despite Hof's footwear advantage he doesn't quite reach 6'4" on the diagram. In every other picture Rob stands with guys who claim 6'4" they appear to be at the same height as Hoff relative to Rob. Hoff always gives a very tall impression because of his posture - he stands straight and seem to want to press the height advantage. I have no problem believing him an honest 6'4" at peak, but not 195,5.
Canson said on 31/May/17
Out of bed peak 195-195.5
Before bed 193-193.5
Probably didn't fall less than 6'4" flat or 6'4 1/8 peak
jervis said on 30/May/17
look over 6ft4 at peak,morn 6ft4.5.
World Citizen said on 29/May/17
6 ft 3.75
so said on 26/May/17
Adam said on 25/May/17
I was always convinced that Hasselhoff understates his height, believing him to be at least 6ft5. But then I saw him with Ryan Stiles on Whose Line is it Anyway. Stiles really makes him look short. At least a 2 inch difference there.
Guanzo said on 23/May/17
Same height with rock 6'2''
HeightMan said on 15/May/17
For sure some mm over 194 at peak. Now 192.
Canson said on 5/May/17
@Berta: I think he's a solid 193 guy. People always do that on this site though. they inflate Him to make Conan
berta said on 5/May/17
yeah canson the number dont really fit when he and conan are listed the same.But i really think hasselhoff could have been 0,6 cm over 193 at his peak. rahter than under it.He looked 3 cm taller thand dwayune johnson barefoot.so if dwayne is 188-189 then hasselhoff is at worst 192,5 even today. But i dont really kmnow maybe that he is skinny makes him look taller :P
issa said on 1/May/17
Lol if Hasselhoff is 5'11, Rob's around 5'3.
Gwynbleidd said on 22/Apr/17
David Hasselhoff... didn't modify his height in any way. Didn't lie about being taller or shorter. Always claimed 6' 4", but he was definitely pushing a little for 6' 5". A legendary man! I believe his peak was 6' 4.5" and he's now 6' 3.5". Still really tall.
Thomas Veil said on 20/Apr/17
I believe Hoff when he say's he's 6'4. He was always a tall guy and looked every bit of it. With age he might be down to 6'3 now
Mark(5'9.25 said on 16/Apr/17
5'11"? Someone tell me that guy was on drugs
He actually looks 6'4" with Rob! Peak, he was a legit 6'4" 1/4 person.
Canson said on 10/Apr/17
@Berta: inthink today he's under 6'4" by a hair and was a solid 193 without hair or shoes peak. That height is very tall and not all that common. What throws things off here is that most posters want Conan to be a full 6'4" or a mercy 6'4" 6'3.75 so they curve people like Hoff and even others to make Conan fit his claim
berta said on 8/Apr/17
i think hasselhoff at peak was 1/4 over this listing and today he looks to be bang on 193.with a chanse of dipping under soon
said on 6/Apr/17Click Here
Classical moment of Hoff. Lol
S.J.H said on 30/Mar/17
Rob should look more on david morse today he look dipping into just 190cm or 6'3 , i don't see hoff is as low as david morse now. I still think hoff peak legit 6'4 like jeff goldbum and they're big 192cm guy now like jason momoa.
mister_lennon said on 28/Mar/17
5'11??? He is in the 6'4-6'5 range.
said on 27/Mar/17
I always thought Hasselhoff could have been close to 6'5 in his night rider days, and is still a solid 6'4 today, what do you think about a peak height Rob, regards.
Editor Rob: well he did have a fraction more shoe this day, but he did look near 6ft 4 so the worst I'd have said would be a little under it.
said on 26/Mar/17
Editor Rob: only when spreading his legs 3 feet apart!
said on 19/Mar/17
Rob, what dou you think David Hasselhoff or David Morse, who is taller at their young years?
Editor Rob: Hoff has a better shout I think of having been a bit over 6ft 4, much like a Goldblum could look over 6ft 4 flat.
Canson said on 17/Mar/17
@Deathstroke: because the two you mentioned aren't the heights they claim. Hoff was a legit 6'4" prime like SJH said don't know about today. He may have lost height but may not.
S.J.H said on 16/Mar/17
That is why i always say a true 6'4 actor give the 6'5 impression. Hoff might just be 6'3.5 nowadays
Deathstroke said on 4/Mar/17
Hasselhoff has to be at least 6'5". He had inches on The Rock and Hulk Hogan
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/17
He certainly could give a 6ft5 impression at times on Baywatch.
Canson said on 26/Feb/17
@Daniel: I think the Oscars tonight should show how tall The rock is. I saw a pic next to my 6'3 friend where he was about an inch shorter than him putting him 6'2. He also looked a full 2-2.5 inches shorter than Michael Strahan. Rock is tops Russell Westbrook height of 6'2.25
S.J.H said on 18/Jan/17
Hoff is not under 6'3.75 nowadays but jeff goldblum hard to pin down under 6'4 even thought rob listed goldblum under hoff height
Canson said on 28/Dec/16
@Daniel: he was taller than the Rock prob still is. Hoff was a legit 193 guy in his prime the Rock around 190. Rock is 6'2" today don't know what Hoff is tho
daniel92 said on 27/Dec/16
this listing looks a good shout i first thought he was six-seven because he was like 1-2" inches on the rock in the beach pics but now i think about it he was stood on uneven ground with shoes so i think he would be the same height as the rock at the most but likely barely shorter
Jordan87 said on 13/Dec/16
He is about 6'3" With Rob.
Booker said on 12/Nov/16
190-192 cm range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Nov/16
Like Neeson, Goldblum and Seagal...Hasselhoff has maybe gone just under 6ft4 today from an approximate peak of just over.
said on 8/Nov/16
Rob is his eye-level 178cm or 179cm?
Editor Rob: Syndicate, probably near 5ft 11
Mark said on 2/Nov/16
Peak would be 6'4.5" David. Current would be 6'3.75" for this guy.
I had a friend who claims 6'4" but actually is at least an inch taller than his claim because back then I had over an inch more sneaks than he did.
6'4" isn't freakish tall and isn't right to call them that. I actually like 6 footers but that's the start of
Aza said on 19/Oct/16
Think he is slightly less than 6'4 standing tall. Almost 6'4.6 peak.
Animus said on 14/Oct/16
I agree that to say a height of 6ft4 is "freakishly tall" in the Western world is a gross exaggeration. I believe it's only 2-2.3 standard deviations above the mean, which means somewhere between 1:50 or 1:100 men hit that mark. It would be the equivalent of saying that someone with a 130-135 IQ is freakishly smart, even though the average Oxbridge or Ivy League student is about at this level.
I'd say 6ft6 could be classified as "extremely tall" and 6ft8 might appropriately be called "freakishly tall".
berta said on 14/Oct/16
peak 6 foot 4 and 1/4 and now 6 foot 4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Oct/16
I personally find it quite insulting that people call 6ft4 "freakishly tall"
Johan said on 12/Oct/16
Yes or even better watch Knight Rider. Then come back and say he was never 6'4". He still looks close to it even in this pic with Rob. Maybe a 1/4 under the mark.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Oct/16
Hoff is a guy I'd guess at 6'4.25 peaj and 6'3.75 now, Rob do you a Goldblum listing would be reasonable or do you think he's still not lost height?
Arch Stanton said on 11/Oct/16
6'4 isn't freakish tall that's why. More the start of very tall. Freakish tall is over 2 metres. Watch any old Baywatch episode and he's very obviously very tall, could pass for 6'5 at times.
Josh Jeffords said on 9/Oct/16
Photo says he under 6 3 unless the Hoff gets to count hair.
He never looked freakish tall to me but didn't waste much time looking at him..
jervis said on 9/Oct/16
I cant understand how he is under 6ft4,he is an easy 6ft4 IMO,infact in his youth I would say he was more 6ft4.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Sep/16
If he's still able to appear all of 6ft4 w/h The Rock then 6ft4½ is debatable for his peak
Canson said on 8/Sep/16
Hoff in his prime was a legit 6'4 maybe even at his lowest.
Canson said on 8/Sep/16
@daniel92: many people claim heights which is the problem. If you see rock next to Charles Barkley he's 2-3" shorter than he is. More like 2.5. And I saw a picture with my 6'3 friend next to him where he looked actually more than an inch but my friend conceded it was an inch. Maybe footwear was a variable more than we think or maybe posture was bad. Rampage could be correct in that if his posture cleaned up he could get close to 190. But 6'5???? That's a joke. Just look at the Rock next to Shaq who is barely 7'0 tall. That's closer to a foot than 7". LOL
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Sep/16
@daniel92: The Rock isn't 6ft5. He's not even 6ft4. He's maybe a fraction under 6ft3 today and a fraction over at peak. Hasselhoff had maybe 1in or a bit more on him, so he's still roughly 6ft4 today. 6ft7...that's a good one.
daniel92 said on 6/Sep/16
David Hasselhoff 2(ish) inches taller than 6'5" rock so he would have to be 6'7" canson where did you get the rock at 6'2" from he is listed at 6'5" and also claims that height
Logan Hedlund said on 5/Sep/16
I would say Mr Hasselhoff to be 6'4'' and a bit more since he's nodding towards Rob (maybe 1/4 inch). Although it appears that Rob's also not standing totally straight.
Good photo Rob.
Canson said on 5/Sep/16
@dan92: that's because the Rock is 6'2 these days never 6'5. My friend who's 6'3 had a pic with him and looked noticeably taller due to camera but said he had him by about an inch. Maybe Rock 6'3 prime but barely
dan92 said on 3/Sep/16
the funny thing is David Hasselhoff looked a inch or two shorter than the rock (6'5") on those beach pics could Hasselhoff be 6'7" ish?
Willes189 said on 21/Aug/16
I don't know about this 6'4.25 peak, maybe i've not seen him enought at his peak to speak, but i'd say that Hoff is a perfect 6'4 example, but i think that someone like Momoa would have him by 1cm today, i'd give Hoff .75 today and this list at his peak, i don't think he has lost more then 1cm (if that)
Zoom Omega Distortion said on 15/Aug/16
Jimbo said on 12/Aug/16
I was curious about his height cause I was watchin baywatch and it poped into my mind....simple search during a commercial ...I could care less about makin waves, trolling to wind people up, debating the issue.....but my curiosity has grabbed hold of me.. so although I could care less if he is or isn't a certain hieght... i gotta ask, why are you guys so obsessed with it..? It's really not that important..what's the worst that can happen, he lied on his drivers licence..perhaps a passport....so 191..193..possible 194...why is it such a huge deal that you guys would debate (argue) over it..?...there's like 250 comments over it...again, I don't care what his true hieght is but I'm curious to why you guys do..that fascinates me more than how tall "big mitch" is..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/16
Could look near 6ft6 on Knight Rider in those boots
Ejel Khan said on 17/Jul/16
Once again, met him! Pic to prove it too, but unfortunately Rob can't upload them anymore. 6'4", spot on! Don't hassle the Hoff!
Johno said on 12/Jul/16
I would not doubt his 6'4 claim, i believe he would have measured it.
Canson said on 8/Jul/16
@Rampage: he was def a legit 6'4 peak
Johan said on 7/Jul/16
He was for sure at least 193 cm at his peak...Anyone who doubts that should watch Knight Rider. He could look 6ft 5 alot back then but he had big boots.
He doesn't see to have lost much at all maybe 1cm which is great considering his age. I wouldn't say his hair is that thick either nowadays. 192 cm for the Hoff as of '16.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/16
192cm peak is too low. Looked 194cm if anything in the Knight Rider/Baywatch years…
Canson said on 6/Jul/16
@Alex: in his prime I do see 6'4 but he could be 6'3 now
Peter 179cm said on 5/Jul/16
6'3.5/about 192cm nowadays...Extra hair clearly doesn't count as height,although it's not impossible he was still 6'4 a few years back,he definitely looked very tall in the Baywatch series.Also,Hasselhoff is another guy after Brandon Routh who ''proves'' The Rock is nowhere near 6'3 or 6'4,and he's infact 188-189cm at the very most.
said on 5/Jul/16
Rob, this Alex guy is trolling now. He knows these are barefoot estimates. Clearly he's doing it to wind people up and it's about time he was either give a sevre talking to or banned IMO!
Editor Rob: yeah I think he needs to reign it in a bit.
movieguy said on 5/Jul/16
Can't understand people wanting to downgrade this guy. Looks a solid 6'4'' to me. OK he is getting older like as all but is still very tall.
Canson said on 4/Jul/16
He was def at least 192 in his peak maybe even a full 6'4 (193 cm).
Alex said on 4/Jul/16
I'm pretty sure he can be around 193 cm in the pic (his eye level is 181 cm with 2 cm of shoes), but if we take away around 2 cm of shoes, is more like 6'3. So, not a real 6'4 here.
Jordan87 said on 30/Jun/16
6'3. His Hair is at 6'4. He cant be 6'4.
said on 25/Jun/16
Looking at recent photos, I can honestly say he still looks mark.
Rob, could he have peaked at 6ft4½?
Editor Rob: he could have been a fraction over 6ft 4
bobbyh3342 said on 14/May/16
62.75 bf current 6 4 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/May/16
Crane said on 1/May/16
From what I see, he can passed for being a 6'4 flat at his peak, 193.5 cm is even possible for him! Today, just like the other guests said, he is a 6'3.75.
said on 30/Mar/16
rob might you eventually list him 6'3.75 and peak 6'4.25?
Editor Rob: I'm not sure, I think through to age 60 he held his height pretty well, and didn't lose much at all.
S.J.H said on 30/Mar/16
To be exact in metric measurement i felt that david hasselhoff is like 192.2-192.4cm nowadays and jason momoa look few mm under 192.0cm. Hasselhoff could edge out momoa by fraction at age of 60s.
JM 6'3.5 (hardly over as seeming shorter than legit 6'4 jared padalecki)
berta said on 29/Mar/16
Rob take a look att the phote with him and the rock. There is one of the photos where you se therir feet. Dwayne has shoes that gives about 2,7 cm? maybe (normal gym shoes) And Hasselhoff is barefoot and still looks about 3 cm taller. He is about 5 cm taller than Dwayne in that pic. The absolute talles Dwayne can be beside him if the angle really si to Hasselhoff favore is 190. When i first saw the photo where you dont see the feet i thought hm Dwayne is still w weak 6`3 but then i saw the shoes.
Ice said on 28/Mar/16
ROB peak out of bed height ?
Alex said on 23/Mar/16
His eye level suggest more like 191,8 or 192 cm
Sam said on 23/Mar/16
Was just recently in an Instagram pic with Dwayne The Rock Johnson shooting the new Baywatch movie. Looked slightly taller.
guk said on 23/Mar/16
Latest Baywatch pics he's two inches taller than The Rock (and hasslehoff is barefoot).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/16
Might be somewhere between 6ft3½-4 today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Mar/16
Looked around 193/194cm range in the Knight Rider and Baywatch years but now might heading toward the 192cm mark.
Johno said on 7/Mar/16
Like i said he can look anything over 6'3.
Taking the picture as it is, David's hair reaches the 6'4 mark and once you trim it, his true height falls below 6'4.
Also, David's head seems slightly tiled downwards thus your seeing the back of his head at the 6'4 mark. If this picture was taking from a higher elevation then David would look slightly shorter.
Rob's posture also seems a bit loose.
All-in-all, David can look around 6'3.5, probably wakesup at near 6'4 but i also believe he drops below 6'3.5.
Jid said on 2/Mar/16
I stood next to him a few years back I would say a definite solid 6.4
184.3cm (Night) said on 17/Feb/16
6'3 flat is impossible. Since Rob has added that App it should stop these claims. He can't be anything under 192 cm, its just not possible. Solid 6'4 at his peak.
kurtz said on 15/Feb/16
190-191 cm. a strong 6 3
Harold said on 8/Feb/16
I think it's evident that the Hoff stands six foot four. Or so close to it that debating the exact amount is a true case of splitting hairs. He's the rare exception in the entertainment industry who does not exaggerate by creating a physically false persona. But then he didn't need to: because he's actually six foot four.
Johno said on 6/Feb/16
Yeh Ismaeel use to be massive everywhere, one of my earlier memories of TV was seeing this show come along with Airwolf. It was particularily big in Asia. David always looked super-tall. In the above picture, you can tell right away that he is anything above 6'3. He was of similar height to Hulk Hogan.
Ismaeel said on 2/Feb/16
He looks 6' 3'' in the above picture, 6' 4'' was possibly his peak height during Knight riders days. For me he is legend , I used to call him Miko in childhood when Knight rider was on TV in middle 80s.
Johno said on 21/Jan/16
Rob seems to be losing some height in that picture.
Mr Hoff most definitely looks sub-6'3 in here; around 6.2.75.
said on 22/Nov/15
Rob, don't you think hoff could be dipping 6'3.75 nowadays?
Editor Rob: it is a possibility. He could have went from 80's and a strong 6ft 4 to just 'about' 6ft 4. He has a little bit more shoe this day, not more than a 1/4in though.

"Peak height was 6ft 4¼in (194cm) "
Chase Witherspoon said on 31/Oct/15
He looks the full 6'4" in that photo above, maybe even 194 accounting for the lean, reckon he'd have been close to 6'5" peak..
said on 20/Aug/15
Rob, what are the chances of him hitting 6ft5 out of bed?
[Editor Rob: in his 20's and 30's yes, I think he'd measure that fine.]
Arch Stanton said on 11/Aug/15
@Rampage John Leslie interviewed him in the 90s and he was definitely at least an inch shorter. Leslie claimed 6 ft 5.
Lillo Thomas said on 10/Aug/15
I'm with Stan. In the pic above David looks 6'3 or 6'3 range with rob max. But next to Penn Gillette David is looking 6'4 or near 6'4. So David is at worst a bit shorter than 6'4 today.
Matthew190 said on 9/Aug/15
He doesn't look a big 6'4"er here, not quite. He probably does clear 6'3" here, however. And I could believe he might still be able to measure 6'4" standing tall under a stadiometer though, or at least 6'3.75".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/15
fray said on 6/Aug/15
He is 6'4" now. Could have been taller at peak.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Jul/15
No he doesn't. Hoff looks noticeably taller than 6'3 guys next to Rob.
Stan said on 29/Jul/15
He look 6'3 here. My brother is 6'6 look a full head over a 5'8 guy like rob. David hasselhoff only look 7inch taller than rob. 6'3 is fair. 6'4 in shoes
said on 27/Jul/15
Rob,are you dropping height ? Because this guy looks every bit of a legit 6ft 4.Your head hits the middle of his mouth.No doubt this guy was 6ft 4.25-5 when younger.Stop with the downgrades to 191-192cm
[Editor Rob: I am standing the same as david.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jul/15
Looks a strong 6ft4 w/h Jillette.
Moke said on 16/Jul/15
@ Lillo Thomas
He looks a for sure tad taller than Rob in the pic. 192-193.
Lillo Thomas said on 24/Jun/15
David look 6'3 with Rob in the pic above. But with Penn Jillette David is looking like a legit 6'4 even at his age. Rob you are right , David still 6'4 today or maybe a tad shorter than 6'4.
said on 23/Jun/15
One of very few people I have ever seen stand next to the towering Penn Jillette without looking like a child.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jun/15
He does look a strong 6ft4 w/h Schneider maybe even nearer 6ft5 if he stood better.

Rob was slouching too. He could be 6ft3 nowadays
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/15
@Rusty 190cm: He does look under 6ft4 here but he's slouching. I think he's still 6ft4 today and was a fraction over it in his 30's.
Rusty 190cm said on 8/Apr/15
He looks a hair over 6'3" here but I think hes likely dropping half inch of posture. I think 6'3.5" is possible these days. I think hes lost a fraction.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/15
He's one of the few guys whose maintained pretty much all of his height...Neeson, Goldblum and Selleck have all lost height
Rusty 190cm said on 2/Apr/15
Based on this photo 6'3.5"-.75 range is most likely. I think he now deserves that as his current height, he's lost some height but he was 61 when this photo was taken.
James B said on 1/Apr/15
6'4.25 peak for sure
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/15
Hasselhoff might edge out Selleck. Both probably around the 6ft4 mark
Adam said on 22/Mar/15
I would pay money to see Hasselhoff and Tom Selleck standing side by side, the Ferrari next to the Trans am. There are no pictures of the two together but for a brief time in the 70's they were colleagues on the set of The Young and the Restless. Hasselhoff just seems taller but in their prime they were both probably reaching 6'4.
Harold said on 1/Mar/15
The reason he still looks around 6'4" today is that he probably never lied about his height in the first place. That makes him unusual, if not unique, in Hollywood.
miko said on 4/Feb/15
The reason he still looks around 6'4 today is that he was probably a little over it in his prime. 6'4.5 could have been possible.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Feb/15
It's amazing how "British" the Hoff has become. I used to think of him as the token American, very Hollywood and LA. Him with Man City players and all that just seems bizarre, he's like a cartoon character in Britain.
alex said on 14/Jan/15
with man city players he is clearly taller than 187 kolarov and slightly taller than 193 dzeko (maybe some footwear advantage) so i think he is still a full 193 guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jan/15
No way a flat 6ft3 even now
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in said on 1/Jan/15

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/14
Hoff can appear closer to 6ft3 a lot now
kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 8/Dec/14
Some of the guys whom rob has listed 6ft 4 appear more in the 6ft 2.5 -3 range.I would say that this guy is a legit 6ft 4.I have a friend who is 6ft 4.5 and he claims 6ft 5 to 6ft 6..
said on 3/Dec/14Click Here
That's fairly recent. A body wreck??? I think he looks particularly good for 60. He's always been a bit funny shaped in frame because of his height I think with a very long upper chest and arms but I don't see this "wreck", most guys would be lucky to look like him at 60.
Height182 said on 1/Dec/14
Looks 6'4'' to me. Surprised he hasn't lost any height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Nov/14
Arch, have you seen the pictures of him on the beach in the Bahamas?
Arch Stanton said on 24/Nov/14
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Oct/14
His body looks a mess...
Not sure I agree, considering he's 60 odd now and has been a heavy drinker I'd actually argue he looks in very good shape still, considering. He could have a massive gut by now. He said he works out most days and watches what he eats in moderation and it shows. I wouldn't mind looking like him at 60 put it that way!
Michael said on 29/Oct/14
Geez, he's a LOT taller than I'd have thought. I thought he was a like 180-185 guy, but then I usually don't really look at that.
Niggurd said on 18/Oct/14
I'd say he was probably 6'4.25 in his prime and now he's shrunken down to 6'3.5 as a 60-something year old man.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/14
His body looks a mess...
jessman said on 2/Oct/14
I also read the Bruno book/saw the photo. Bruno described Hoff as 6'7! There was also a pic with Tom Selleck who was described as 6'6. Both Hoff and Selleck looked up to 3 inches taller than bruno. Couldn't see footwear. Bruno nowhere near 6'3, probably 6'1 ish.
Andrea said on 1/Oct/14
Well, Arch, he can look similar to the 191.5 guy with Rob in this photo (and Rob seems to be standing more "straight" with the young chap)... He must be losing some posture here or he's not 6'4, Rob says he looked near 6'4 in person so i'm gonna trust him (granted he easily looked 6'4 when younger) ;)
Arch Stanton said on 30/Sep/14
@Andrea I wouldn't be certain of that, Hoff looks to me like he isn't quite standing his straightest, I might be wrong.
Andrea said on 11/Sep/14
Well, in this photo, you're clearly above his mouth, at least half an inch... So even if let's say his mouth is about 8 inches from the top of his head, he doesn't look over 6'3.5...
said on 9/Sep/14
Do you not think this is a good example of 6'4 in a photo then Rob? I thought it was around 8 inches from top of the head to mouth, which is where you reach.
[Editor Rob: I think it is close enough to be a good example yeah. Being at the middle of a mouth of a taller man could be anywhere in 6ft 3.5-4.25 range typically. To the middle of a mouth, the 99th percentile is 8.1 inches, the average is more in 7.3 inches.
bigboy fury said on 23/Aug/14
I saw a photo of him next to Frank Bruno in a Bruno biography and he is way taller than Frank and he is listed as 6.3"!
Concerned 181 cm said on 11/Aug/14
Looks 6'3 here, but I could buy 6'4 for his peak, seeing as how he's over 60 years old in this picture. Or maybe he just isn't standing at his straightest.
samsl said on 28/Jul/14
I met him a few years back at a Fashion Week party. I'm 6' and was wearing dress shoes and he was every bit 4" taller than me in his dress shoes. He's an enormous fellow (that respectfully moved me out of the way to get to the open bar).
Realist said on 27/Jul/14

Looks near enough 6'4 here. Really at worst maybe 6'3.5.
probably doesn't look 6'4 in this photo but with mamun he looks every bit of 6'4
said on 22/Jul/14
Rob, you said he's very near 6'4 in person but why he doensn't look that tall in this single photo? Is he dropping some height or just camera angle? I'm not sure he looks much over 6'3 here...
[Editor Rob: I think he looks over 6ft 3 there, maybe not an exact 6ft 4 but a fraction better posture and I think he would be.]
Dmeyer said on 3/Jul/14
i dont see more than 7.5in 6'3.5 today is possible

6'4.5 wouldn't surprise me at all. Very tall

Charvet? 5'10.5" would be a good shout. He was definitely taller than Chokachi and edges out Alexandra Paul.
said on 12/May/14
Looks 20 cm more than rob in this picture. One is interesting is the height of David charvet who is claiming to be a 6 but he clearly isn't : Click Here
I would go for 5'10 for him, even less like 176 cm. He does almost seems as much differences in this picture that the one with Rob (he was 19 years old)
Ben Tonks said on 3/May/14
Blimey! That is pretty tall!
Mid190s said on 14/Mar/14
One of the most accurate 6'4 listings I've ever seen on this site. If this is him at 60 he was probably around 194-195 in his Baywatch years.

Ted said on 10/Dec/13
Assuming about a 10-inch head, I don't think we're seeing an 8-inch height difference between The Hoff and 5-8 Rob.
6-3.5 or 6-3 flat seems more likely.
Lillo thomas said on 10/Dec/13
Dmeyer you are correct . He looks 6'3 with rob in the pic . David isn't taller than 6'3.5 today.
dmeyer said on 5/Dec/13
Rob looks 1-2cm under his nose about 7in wich means 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Dec/13
@Arch: he's listed at both 6ft4 and 6ft5, actually. I just looked him up. Somewhere between those figures would make sense. But, he wouldn't be that well known.
Lillo Thomas said on 3/Dec/13
Nope he is 6'3.5 max today . David was a solid 6'4 in his pic.
avi said on 2/Dec/13
You wouldn't say that if you saw a tall guy like 6'1 next to him. He'd look solid 3 taller
Patrick said on 22/Nov/13
dmeyer is stupid, the picture PROVES he is 6'4 and possibly 6'4" 1/2.
dmeyer said on 26/Oct/13
I do believe He Is 6'4 but in the pic looks 16cm taller about 189cm
Arch Stanton said on 26/Oct/13
Michael Newman "Newmie". Yeah I think he edged out the Hoff. Newmie could certainly look 6'4.5"-6'5" at times but I think he was listed at 6'4" like the Hoff.
Tall Jacek PL said on 25/Oct/13
Definitely 6'4", no less.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/13
There was that other really tall guy on Baywatch with the moustache whose name escapes me but was a lifeguard in real life. He looked 6ft4-5 and might've edged out Hasselhoff

Wow you finally met the Hoff Rob!! As you can see still obviously 6'4".

He was probably close to a flat 6'5 out of bed in his prime.

Also keep in mind that Rob is more of a 5'8.25" guy (his youtube videos prove that) and hasselhoff isnt standing fully straight
The Exorcist said on 20/Sep/13
Looks 6'3.5 here. But also looks like he's not standing up as straight as he could be.
Rusty said on 19/Sep/13
because dolph and lou took steroids is why they have lost earlier
said on 18/Sep/13
Still a couple of inches taller than 6'1.5 Russell Brand two years ago:
He's 6'3.5 at worst.
Rusty said on 17/Sep/13
6'3.5" today wouldn't be a shock to me, but certainly a strong 6'4" in his prime
said on 17/Sep/13
Still 6ft4 when stretched out. Looking very frail in that pic.
What was he like, Rob?
[Editor Rob: he seemed to enjoy being at these events, although in this photo he was still thinking about the 2 girls in front of me who had just taken photos with him - they were dressed in very revealing outfits...]
chunky said on 15/Sep/13
this one's correct. maybe 6'3.5
Tareq said on 14/Sep/13
Back during the Knight Rider days, he was a strong 6'4". During some scenes, he used to look almost 6'6" with his thick curly hair, slim build and 1.5" boots he used to wear to match his black jeans/black leather jacket.
Jordan said on 11/Sep/13
Looks a solid 6'3.25 to 6'3.5. I dont see 6'4 here. Maybe 6'3.5 Tops. There is pics where Hoff is 1" taller than Dolph Lundgren who would be around 6'2.5 I guess nowadays. Makes me doubt that Lundgren was ever 6'4.
Lillo thomas said on 11/Sep/13
Avi you should check the mcpartin pic again carefully and compare the difference . He is clearly atleast 1 inch taller than David .
Balrog said on 10/Sep/13
Maybe 6'4.25" at his prime was possibly and now just 6'4" or a tad under.
avi said on 9/Sep/13
mcpartlin seems .5 tops taller there's a posture factor here I'm seeing 6'3'75 here but 6'4 is reasonable.
Simon said on 9/Sep/13
Youth: ~193 cm 6'4
Today: ~191 cm 6'3.25-6'3.5
Lillo thomas said on 8/Sep/13
David was 6-5 out of the bed in his prime and 6-4 at his lowest . Now he is 6-3.5 at his lowest and maybe 6-4.5 out of the bed. Ryan McPartlin look like a legit 6-4.5 next to rob . This guy is clearly taller than David . 6-3.5 for David today is spot on .
Brad2 said on 8/Sep/13
Easy 6'4". Maybe a tad over in his prime. He is just a big dude. If he's lost any height he has only lost a tad.
Scott five eleven said on 7/Sep/13
I have a mate who is just under 6'6 and im around the same height difference as the photo above of rob and the hoff. I'm a legit 5'11 so there seems to be a 7-8 inch difference in the photo which would make the hoff 6'3.5 at least.
Adamz said on 7/Sep/13
There ya go Robby boy! Get the good pics! 6-4 looks right!!!
said on 6/Sep/13
attaboy here comes the real 6'4 guy. Rob he's been a very fit guy if he's not lost a niche under his height, so why is that guys like lou,dolph have lost height and they're around his age?
[Editor Rob: unless you track your height to the mm, you probably wouldn't notice a few mm loss. Some people can damage their discs through long term lifting/exercise.]
Lo sgozzatore said on 4/Sep/13
Yeah, he probably is still near 6'4 as Rob says! Maybe more 6'3.5-6'3.75 today than a full 6'4.
The Horse of FUNK said on 4/Sep/13
I think he's still roughly 6'4" today, maybe a tad under like 6'3.75". Wouldn't surprise me if he was a smidgen over 6'4" during his younger years.

rob said his friend is a little over 6ft barefoot and same height as regular contributor alex, hoff looks 6'4 next to him Click Here
Hard to argue that. Truth is that Hoff looks every bit 6'4" there. My reference is that the top of the head a typical (no long forehead type) 5'8" person would normally fitunder a typically 6'2" p person's nose. Their seems to be an inch between the top of Robs head and Hoffs nose. But hey Hoff could be leaning. I doubt he lost more than half an inch as he is lean/thin and in relative good health it seems
Brad said on 2/Sep/13
As listed now and back on Knight Rider. I've lost nothing in 40 years, neither has he.
caaq said on 1/Sep/13
I think he looked a full 6-4 back in knight rider days and in his early baywatch days. But in baywatch hawaii days he looked like 6-2. I thin he lost an inch from shrinkage and an inch from posture.
