I could see him make 6'2.25 with good posture, proper stretched out. Definitely a strong 6'2.

Jordan87, creatine isn't the same as anabolic steroids....but 10lbs in a week does sound rather extreme
Jordan87 said on 12/Apr/23
10 Pounds of Muscle in a week?....Yeah Creatine maybe?.....Keep using that of luck. Also, Dude is not 6'3 either. Most celebs are full of crapola....this guy is pretty easy to read I see lol.

Could even be 6’2 and one eighth

Pere said on 11/Oct/21
But I thought that the celebs measurements are based in guessing the afternoon height right?
Editor Rob
yes, so there may be a chance Dave could be a potential 6ft 2 and change.
Pere said on 9/Oct/21
@Rob is this a afternoon height? Or his lowest?
Editor Rob
Might be a guy who doesn't really fall under 6ft 2

He couldn’t gain muscle that quickly

He doesn’t have thin bones like Amell

But still is in great shape

He’s probably exaggerating because most people don’t know it’s impossible

Similar in size and strength to Amell

Good build
Elene said on 8/Aug/21
Between 187 and 189 cm,6’2 yes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/21
slim, that's a tough call....I will say this for starters, an inch difference in height give or take will hardly make a difference so I'd throw that out the window! I think Amell is 200-205lbs (buffer than he used to be) while Ramsay is 210-215lbs? Overall size, there's not a massive difference...
slim 6'1 said on 7/Jul/21
@Rob, do you reckon amell could be as strong as Ramsey?
Editor Rob
both look very fit guys I would politely decline if asked to arm wrestle.

Who is strongest I don't know.
Tajaun said on 19/May/21
@Slim 6'1.5" What makes you think that? I bet Amell is easily as strong as Ramsey; size means nothing.
Slim 6'1.5 said on 29/Apr/21
It’s a 3.5-4cm difference between amell and Ramsey
Similar torso sizes aswell except Ramsey would obviously be stronger 👍
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/21
An eighth of an inch more is possible surely?
Editor Rob
It could be argued for him.
berta said on 13/Mar/21
rob maybe give himm a small upgrade. he looks to be that ryan reynolds height.
Genau said on 7/Feb/21
Rob who do you think is taller between him Ryan Reynolds, David Morrissey and Ben Anfleck
Editor Rob
I would give Affleck an edge, although Ramsey and Reynolds do have a chance of measuring just over 6ft 2...a better chance than under 6ft 2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Feb/21
This guy looked big on Dexter, I thought he was 6ft4-5 originally!

I think there's more than an inch between him and Amell, so you could argue a hair over this maybe. Looks heavier than 215lbs, at least 225lbs...all muscle though, dude's jacked
Editor Rob
you can make the case for 1.5 inches between them.
slim 6'1 said on 30/Jan/21
Yeah pretty much 3.5cm between this guy and amell
slim 6'1 said on 28/Jan/21
Solid 6’2” guy
Angora said on 27/Jan/21
My guess would be 6’2(1/4).

Put on that much muscle in a few months is believable but not 1-2 weeks...

187.5 could be the deal man

I can't see him being less than 6'2"!
Nik said on 27/Mar/19
It's interesting that after (autocorrect tried to change that after to that's fated!) 62 votes the average vote works out as 6'2.01"!
TheBat said on 23/Mar/19
I'll give 6'2" for David as well, great actor too.
PAN BERRY said on 1/Jan/19
Nice height, I thought he’s like 6’4” in arrow but I guess he’s 188.5 cm most of the time at 6’2.25”
Andrea said on 2/Nov/18
While a fraction under 6'2 isn't impossible for sure, 6'2 is still a good shout for him. Even on Dexter, he easily looked around that, and at least 4 inches taller than MCH in a scene...
Editor Rob
Ramsey does look consistantly around that 6ft 2 range on Arrow I person he was definitely taller than Kane Hodder that weekend.
Zampo said on 11/Sep/18

RE your response to Christian, I thought having hair gave the illusion of being taller? but from what you have typed it doesn't seem so...
Editor Rob
I'm saying there can look an inch between Routh and Ramsey in person because of Routh having more hair...but I don't think there is any more than about half inch.

The hair definitely gives Routh an advantage in person over Ramsey.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 26/Aug/18
At least 6'1 7/8 since Rob is 5'8 1/8 and 1/3 less footwear.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 16/Aug/18

I disagree. Routh looks a solid 6'2.5" whereas Ramsey has 1/3" more footwear than Rob and still looks around 6'2" flat. He'd be about 6'1.75" without footwear advantage.
Editor Rob
I've seen Ramsay and Routh at same event...I think there is a solid half inch or so between them, but because of Routh having hair and David having barely any, in person it might seem like an inch...
Westworlder said on 15/Aug/18
Ramsey is proof that 6'2 is tall no matter what. There's been way taller guys on Arrow throughout every season, yet I always consider Ramsey one of them. He just looks solid, solid tall all the time.
Nik said on 5/Aug/18
Solid 6'2"!
berta said on 21/Apr/18
you can see in photos of him and brandon routh that he is clearly shorter than routh. if routh is 189-190 then 188 is best listing for this guy
Zampo said on 6/Apr/18
Solid 6'2 IMO. I can see him dipping to 187.5cm. Good listing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Mar/18
Not a hell of a lot between him and Brandon Routh in photos w/h Rob
Jordan87 said on 24/Jan/18
If he had 1/3" More Footwear, this puts him a shade under 6'2. He is not over 6'2, despite what he looks next to Amell, this picture takes precedence over what he looks with another Celeb, especially since the Postures here are good. Height Chart here is accurate.
Alex 6'3 said on 24/Dec/17
187-188 cm should be right
Slim 184 said on 8/Nov/17
He has about 4 Cm on 184.5 Stephen Amell so a 188.5 upgrade shouldn’t be ruled out.
Slim 6' said on 24/Oct/17
188.5 isn't impossible.
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
Bang on 188 with rob
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 24/Sep/17
He's not more than 188cm. He had 1/3" more footwear than Rob and his head still doesn't quite reach the 6'2" line, although he's hunching a bit. I'm thinking between 187.5-188cm for him.
Slim said on 23/Sep/17
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/17
He does look near 189cm

Ramsay is 188.5(6'2.25"). But 6'2" is still 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/17
He does look near 189cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jun/17
Amell could be a weak 6ft1 and Ramsey a strong 6ft2.
World Citizen said on 29/May/17
186 or 187 cm
Mark Vince said on 19/Apr/17
Looks right. One inch taller than Stephen Amel.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 17/Apr/17
Legit 6'2" person. I wouldn't be surprised if he's 6'2.25"
Canson said on 24/Mar/17
@Rob: what's your normal low? 5'8" or 5'8 1/8?
Editor Rob
right on the 1/8th mark.
Steve said on 22/Mar/17
@Rob Do you think 6ft2.5 is possible for Ramsey? He often looks a little more than an inch taller than 6ft1 Stephen Amell in arrow.

Click Here looks to have at least 1.5inch on him here, for example.
Google does list him as 188cm though and it's very rare that google lists anyone as being shorter than they really are...
Editor Rob
6ft 2 1/8th and 6ft 0.75 for Amell might be arguable.
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Bobby: he's like both of us. Both strong 6'4" neither of us drop below 6'4
berta said on 19/Feb/17
by looking at the phot i would think he could be 189 guy if measured but he had 1/3 inch more shoe. that means 188 is a good listing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/17
Looks a good 1in taller than Amell whose at worst a weak 6ft1 guy.
Anon2099 said on 11/Dec/16
I don't see how this guy could be anything under 6'2". Looks a solid 6'2 on screen and in this photo with Rob.
186cm said on 26/Nov/16
@booker 186cm is a joke for this guy. 187cm maybe at an absolute absolute low! 6'2 flat for sure. 186cm would make amell 6'0 flat lol which rob said it's "a near zero percent chance he (Stephen amell) is that low (6ft flat). At worst 6'1.75 range at night
Booker said on 24/Nov/16
186-187 range
SammySmith said on 16/Nov/16
Looks 6'3, compare him to Stephen Amell who is supposedly only 1 inch shorter.
Steve said on 15/Nov/16
I've always thought Ramsey was closer to 6ft3 than 6ft2! Having checked google it does say 6ft2 and I don't think google has ever UNDERestimated anyone, so I suppose 6ft2 is the max he could be! Absolute solid 6ft2 at that! It's obvious from his proportions and he always looks easily a good inch taller than 6ft1 Amell in Arrow.
Ken said on 8/Nov/16
Rob where would a 182 cm person reach next to David?
Editor Rob
Ken, possibly half inch underneath his hairline.
Johan said on 20/Oct/16
6'2". Head is shaved and he could stretch out a bit more.
Brandon said on 18/Oct/16
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/16
Rob, taller than a guy like Chaske Spencer?
Editor Rob
I think he would measure a bit taller.
S.J.H said on 28/Sep/16
In arrow or the flash i can't remember which episode but he look about 2cm shorter than brandon routh when standing close up. I did stick up with 6'1.75 not full 6'2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/16
Near 6ft2.
Aza said on 14/Sep/16
He's 74inches and looks fookin' hard!
pjk said on 11/Sep/16
Solid 6'2". Much taller than stephen Amell in Arrow ( at least 2" maybe more ).
Alex said on 28/Jun/16
Strong 187, weak 188 as his eye level suggest
Arch Stanton said on 26/Jun/16
Johno said on 8/Mar/16

See, that PROVES that you downgrade everybody Johno. The height chart here is as close as you'll get to proof that he's close to 6'2, so why are you claiming he is even under 6 ft 1 but for having a complex?
Crane said on 1/May/16
6'1.75 for sure. Jesus, just look at his arms!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/16
I though 189cm was possible watching Dexter.
NBAer said on 21/Mar/16
Strong 187 or 6'1.75
Johno said on 8/Mar/16
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/16
Rob, is 187cm possible?
Editor Rob
from watching the show I wouldn't have guessed sub 188cm, in fact I'd have said a solid 6ft 2 range, up close I think he is roughly 6ft 2, but not a 'big 6ft 2'
Born Again said on 23/Feb/16
This guy looks big, that's for sure.
Leo said on 2/Nov/15
187.5 is the best for he.

6ft 1.5 night
6ft 2.25 morning
orrico said on 30/Jan/15
hey rob, doesnt he look taller next to you than brandon routh?
Editor Rob
I think he appears shorter than Routh looks, and david even has a bit more footwear thickness than me. Routh is a taller guy I believe.

very weak 6´2"
6´1.5- 6´1,75" evening

This big guy has to weigh at least 240.
Judd said on 22/Sep/14
6'1.5-6'2...6'1" is out of my mind
The Shedder said on 17/Sep/14
Glover is nowhere 6'2 with Rob.
Alex 6'0 said on 12/Sep/14
Rob, minus the near 1/2 inch more footwear it appears you'd come up to just about his eye level. His eye level I think would have to be easily 5-5.25 for him to be even near 6'2. He does look a bit over 5 inches taller
Andrea said on 6/Sep/14
Yeah, but his "real" height is around 6'1.5... Arent you the guy who claims the lowest height you reach? When you saw him that day, you noticed he wasnt a big 6'2 or he still looked that to you?
Editor Rob
because of his good posture he could still look near 6ft 2 that day.
NickA said on 5/Sep/14
Rob, how tall do you think YouTuber Roman Atwood (left) is, considering that the guy on the right (Furious Pete) is allegedly 1,88 m?
Andrea said on 5/Sep/14
Fair doesn't mean he actually would measure about 188 at his lowest but i agree with the listing! Rob, you still consider the plumber a legit 6'2 but he is not :) I doubt he generally measures around 6'2 and that day he dipped half an inch under his usual low!
Editor Rob
what I'm talking about is perception. Since I have mainly seen the Plumber in mornings/afternoons, compared to the measurement day at 6.30pm, my overall impression was that I'd seen him looking nearer 6ft 2. Sure, he might be 6ft 1.75 at lunchtime and with good posture passes for 6ft 2 quite easily.
Alex 6'0 said on 5/Sep/14
Rob, this guy looks around an inch more taller than you than Danny Glover did I see
Editor Rob
Glover is more of a safer bet being under 6ft 2. To be fair Ramsey does have good footwear advantage, I think around 6ft 2 is fair for him.
Andrea said on 3/Sep/14
Yeah, i've seen only a few episodes of Arrow but he can look 188-189 in the show, i actually thought 6'2.5 was possible! The fact is, and it's not the first time, that you list someone at 6'2 and say he's no taller than the plumber guy. Ok, the plumber can look 6'2 but he's not that tall!!!
Editor Rob
yeah the plumber was surprised himself as he thought he was 6ft 2!
Andrea said on 3/Sep/14
One thing is looking an height, another thing is being an height... I can believe the plumber generally is around 187 but hey he did measure 186.5 basically (if you take 1/8 inch away from his measurement)... I don't think it could be more than 3/4 mm than his normal low! You yourself list never dip below 173 and list at only 173! I was talking about the nearly 6'1.5 version of the plumber... If David measured 186.5, would you still keep him at 6'2 just because "he can look it"?
Editor Rob
on the show I wouldn't guess him shy of 6ft 2, in person there is always a chance of being a fraction under but I'm not as sure on that, so would leave him 6ft 2.
Andrea said on 3/Sep/14
Did he look taller than the 186.5 plumber in person? Just looking at their photos, they really don't look much different but David has more shoes... You think David could be half an inch taller?
Editor Rob
not really, but then the plumber guy can look nearer 6ft 2 at times aswell.
horacle said on 1/Sep/14
i thought he was at least 6'3 , maybe Amell is less than 6'1?
Alex 6'0 said on 31/Aug/14
Rob, you don't see possibly 6'1.5 without the footwear advantage? Looks more of a weak 6'2 guy
Editor Rob
I wouldn't put a bet on 6ft 1.5, but near enough to 6ft 2 I think is a fair guess.
Theo said on 30/Aug/14
He looks like 6'2.5 to me. Considering that Stephen Amell is most likely a legit 6'1, I think that Ramsey has about an inch and a half on Amell.
Alex 6'0 said on 30/Aug/14
6'1.5 prob without the footwear advantage
AndyBg said on 28/Aug/14

within 5ft 8 range is ok I think for him.

Just saying that link to David Ramsey's page on the "Latest Celebrity Photos"-section doesn't work.
Editor Rob
ok thanks I fixed that link
Ozark said on 24/Aug/14
Hes huge. I would have thought taller than 6'2 from seeing the pic on the first page.
Pool said on 23/Aug/14
187cm I see
Andrea said on 23/Aug/14
Maybe, that's because Amell isn't a legit 6'1 in reality? Anyway, after seeing him with you, i wouldn't rule out a fraction shy at worst, like 187. Is that possible?
Editor Rob
nah I wouldn't rule out it out, but I think 6ft 2 is a fair shout if measured.
Mathew said on 21/Aug/14
Yeah he could pass for 189 with the footware advantage, so 188 makes sense.
Ras said on 21/Aug/14
I think he's 6'1.5 without the footwear advantage.
Sam said on 21/Aug/14
He looks a pretty strong 6'2" but his footwear is helping...formidable looking guy.
Andrea said on 21/Aug/14
Yeah, exactly what i thought! ;)
He has bit more shoe, though, so maybe could be a weak 6'2, Rob? To be fair i would have guessed him a strong 6'2 because he does look at least a solid inch taller than Stephen Amell, but then he might be 6'0.5-6'0.75 rather than a full 6'1!
