6ft 0.78in (184.9cm)
Trent said on 20/Dec/12
Are you sure he claimed 15 stone? I'd be surprised if he was that high, 6'1.3 or 6' even.
Amanda said on 19/Dec/12
On a recent cooking show of his in November he was asked to dance, he refused he said 15 stone and size 14 feet, he is somewhere around 6'1.5 no more but no less.
[Editor Rob:
as I mentioned before he was measured (whether barefoot or not we don't know), but the model called out 6ft 2.5 for some reason even when the reading itself looked just shy of 6ft 1.5!]

Ramsey is tall but I wouldent describe him as 'strong tall'
joe joe said on 19/Nov/12
it happens Im a weak 6'1 and my feat are a size 14 even when I was a younger at about 5'11 My feet were already a size 13 uk not US which is smaller. so it happens. Growing is not an exact science people.
James said on 18/Nov/12
I know someone who is 6'4 with size 16 feet
Arch Stanton said on 11/Nov/12
Yeah its very rare Haddock but some guys do have freakishly large feet for their size. The brother of one my mother's friends is 6 ft range and size 15 feet too. I doubt he'd lie about that.
James said on 5/Nov/12
6'1 like Johnathan Ross
haddock said on 20/Oct/12
i find the size 15 feet claim hard to believe. look how short he looks next to conan gordon is only about 6`0 no way does he have size 15 at that height it is not logical. peter jones dragons den 6`7 has size1 4feet. 6`0 size 15 feet something not right there
Shaun said on 14/Oct/12
No Cranberries, UK size 15 US size 16. Yeah its about what guys near 6'10" wear.
Charles said on 4/Oct/12
I read in the daily mirror an article when gordon was asked to go on strictly come dancing, Gordon said with size 16 feet I think not, I always thought he had size 15 feet, I met gordon in London in august and he told me he was indeed a size 16, Gordon Ramasy has size 16 feet
Shaun said on 27/Sep/12
Ivo Karlovic has US Size 16 feet/UK size 15 and he's 6 ft 10, about right proportionally!
Shaun said on 27/Sep/12
nothing says on 22/Aug/12
he really needs an upgrade rob, seriously 186cm is absolutely ridiculous for him, not even before bed!!!, he's at least 187cm without the hair!

Well he looks very close to my height and build, a bit less toned maybe and my lowest is 186. Actually next to the Hoff at Christmas he was struggling to look even a flat 6'1 though.
Shaun said on 27/Sep/12
Size 15 feet, he has said that a few times, yes that's size 16 US and the shoe size of a basketball player approaching 7 ft. A brother of my mother's friend I met once had size 15 feet and he was only about 6 ft..
Shaun said on 27/Sep/12
No he usually claims 6 ft 2 and 15 stone. He said he used to be 18 stone od; if you look back at old series from like 2002 he was a porker and a lot angrier back then...
charles said on 25/Sep/12
under 6`0is crazy i met and we were the same height 6`1 i am so gordon is 6`1he has size 14 size 15 which are huge for that height
alan said on 22/Sep/12
clive I think Gordon Ramasy has size 14 feet, I found it in a article
Clive said on 21/Sep/12
Editor rob do you know what shoe size Gordon Ramasy is, is he size 14 or is he size 15?
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure]
Aaaron said on 19/Sep/12
He changes stats every time he uses them. I've heard him say 6' 1", 6' 2", 15 stone, 17 stone, size 14 feet and size 15 feet. why can't he make his mind up,he never played pro for Rangers either
James said on 8/Sep/12
I met Gordon recently in the United states I am 6'1 and were very similar in height I cannot see how he is under 6'1
ANDREA[ITA] said on 8/Sep/12
Rob, you said you dont know if he had shoes on but you should be able to see if he looks more a 186-187 guy or a let's say 183-184 guy? You give some people you didnt meet the 1/4 inch measurement, so that means you're pretty precise... It must be easier to choose between 186-187 or 183-184 than choose between 5'11 or 5'11.25, if you know what i mean!
James said on 2/Sep/12
I was reading an article in the daily mail recently about how he struggled to get his body into a small bath in a hotel room in America it said he was 6ft 1, that probably came from gordon himself so i say 6ft Ramasy is
Thunderbolt said on 31/Aug/12
I met Gordon Ramasy in London in July, I am 6'0.5 and we were exactly the same height, if rob said the stadiometer said 6'1.3 in shoes that makes sense he is 6'0.5 barefoot, if Gordon Ramasy does have size 15 feet he has massive feet for his height
Manering said on 30/Aug/12
editor rob I do believe that gordon is around 6ft 2 6ft as some people are saying on here is too low. i thought Gordon ramasy had size 15 feet. he said that in an interview with Jonthan ross about 4 years ago now.
Triplescrew said on 29/Aug/12
He says in Kitchen Nightmares UK that he has size 14 feet. That would be pretty gigantic for someone who was only 183cm...definitely looks closer to 6'2" on the show.
Pike said on 25/Aug/12
Rob I think you should downgrade Gordon Ramasy down to 6'0-6'0.5 ( 183cm-184cm)I saw a old epiosde of the F word in 2008 when he was measured, he had his shoes on and was 186-187cm.
nothing said on 22/Aug/12

nothing said on 15/Aug/12
no way he's only 186cm, i give him 188cm and 189.5cm with the hair

i watch a lot of his shows and he always one of the tallest people or the tallest, and to tell u the truth 6 ft 1 186 is not always the tallest among people esp in Europe...
james said on 8/Aug/12
i met gordon ramasy in london last month after my 23rd birthday. i am 6`0 barefoot and was eye to eye with him. gordon ramasy is exaclty 6`0. is it possible rob that he could be downgraded to 6`0. the 6`1.4is obivously a shoes measurement
james said on 25/Jul/12
under 6ftis a joke i met him i am 6ft1.5and we were the same height so gordon is sis feet one and half
Shaun said on 16/Jun/12
Marco Pierre is the tallest chef I think, that James Martin bloke in my opinion looks more 6'2" and not quite as tall as he claims. I saw Marco on BB about 6 months back and he looked at least a legit 6'3".
Shaun said on 22/Jan/12
@Serge. Not even 6 ft? LOL. Seems as he has two inches on David Beckham and Robbie Williams.. I'll agree he looked 6'0.5" next to Hasselhoff though.
Serge said on 15/Jan/12
I met him at the Indigo book-signing in Toronto when he released "Gordon Ramsay's Fast Food". I'm 5'11" with my shoes on & was eye-to-eye with him. Gordon is not even 6ft.
aunold said on 1/Jan/12
Always thought Ramsey was taller but apparently not. Looks huge next to James Kyson Lee in soccer aid picture but Lee is a lot smaller than hed have you think. He has a page on here and youve got to check it out cos Rob absolutely busts him.
miko said on 29/Dec/11
I've been saying for a long time that Ramsey is very lucky if he's 6'1.
Shaun said on 29/Dec/11
Well I was pretty sure he was 6'1.5" range, He could look close to 6'2" a lot next to those footballers for instance and generally does look two inches taller than Beckham. Also he's a few inches taller than Janet Street Porter. Generally in that video accounting for posture I see about 3 inches but as you say they are constantly moving and slouching. Are we certain Hoff is exactly a flat 6'4" though? He could look a bit taller in Baywatch and Pamela Anderson and a few of the others in the cast claim he is 6'5" (although probably so she can claim 5'7"!). I think somebody said though that John Leslie had an inch on him at 6'5". Did Hoff look a weak 6'4" recently next to David Cameron though?
Shaun said on 28/Dec/11
Dunno if you see 42:00-45:10 odd Hoff actually does look near 4 inches taller. LOL if he was 6'2.5" as Erin claims Hoff is pushing 6'7". I'm not seeing anything above 6'1", Rob? Hoff actually makes him look quite small...
[Editor Rob: they are both moving/slouching a lot in these clips, but sometimes it can look a big 3 inch bigger yeah]
Shaun said on 28/Dec/11
Click Here

Rob see the first half hour, pause at 11:10 for instance. What do you think? I'm seeing 3-3.5 inch difference.
Shaun said on 28/Dec/11
Second picture looks a lot shorter than this doesn't he. Click Here
Ejel Khan said on 25/Dec/11
O'Connor was lying on show to give Ramsey a boost. 6'4" Hasslehoff appeared on Ramsey's live cook-a-long on Christmas day. The difference was 4" in Hoff's favour.
Yaspaa said on 23/Dec/11
Erin O'Connor measured him at 6'2.5? He has the same measuring skills as Vince Basille.
Shaun said on 12/Dec/11
He did look a legit 6'1.5" next to those who took part in the football matches for charity though didn't he.
Shaun said on 12/Dec/11
Dunno, its possible Physics, but I swear, scouts honour, this guy looks very close in body frame to myself and my lowest is 186. Of course people can look taller on TV than in real life, but this guy often claims 15 stone-15 and a half stone which I was for years until I dropped to just over 14 and a half this year.
SAK said on 5/Dec/11
@ Physics Enemy, Beckham isn't 5ft10, more like 181cm/5ft11.



Ramsay strong 6f1, 186cm for sure.
Physics Enemy said on 18/Nov/11
Beckham is 5' 10" Shaun, he was even listed at that in his early playing days. Ramsey is 6' 0.5" without his sneakers and the stadiometer error.
Physics Enemy said on 17/Nov/11
6' 1.375" is 186.37 cm. Knock off 2mm you get 186.17 cm. Knock off 2cm for his sneakers, you get 184.17 cm. That's bang on 6' 0.5". That's his exact height.
Shaun said on 17/Nov/11
He doesn't look under 6'1" next to Beckham.
Shaun said on 17/Nov/11
One thing I've noticed about Ramsay is that he always wears very flat looking sneakers so if I doubt he'd be much lower than this although he could be 6'0.5" maybe.
Physics Enemy said on 16/Nov/11
He was in footwear. 99% certain. Why lie about the measurement, cut-out his feet from the vid, yet measure barefoot? Never. He's 6' 0.5" barefoot, just under 6' 1.3" in sneakers (without the 2mm error). He's 184 cm.
Physics Enemy said on 15/Nov/11
There must be footage of him with his sneakers visible, in that same episode where he gets measured? If we can see them, we can deduct the sneaker difference since Rob will know how much height they give.

If anyone can find a shot of his sneakers from that episode, show us!
[Editor Rob: what happens if they cut, and during the cut he took sneakers off. Having these unknowns means the measurement is either in footwear or not, but it's not certain.

there might be a greater chance he is in footwear though, maybe the model would remember, although seeing as she called out an inch taller than he was I have my doubts.]
Physics Enemy said on 14/Nov/11
He's exactly 184 cm I think, just about 6' 0.5". He's just over 6' 1.25" with his sneakers and then 184 cm without. His 6' claim for a 19 year old player was close and probably just rounded off from 184.
Physics Enemy said on 14/Nov/11
Come on Rob, he was wearing sneakers. You said yourself they were trying to cheat the measurement and pretend he was very tall. So why would he then be barefoot? It's 99% assured he was wearing sneakers ... IF he was barefoot they'd make a big point of showing his feet in the video to highlight that. 6' 0.5" is fair for him. He even said 6' for himself at age 19.

He's 6' 1.275" or so (without 2mm error) and then 6' 0.5" barefoot.
[Editor Rob: but it's still unknown how much his sneakers are, we could assume, but I don't know.]
Shaun said on 13/Nov/11
Chances are he was wearing sneakers... If so he's more 6'0.5". He looks a solid 6'1" er though to me and 15 stone odd but like myself although I'm 14 st 8 at the moment!
Physics Enemy said on 10/Nov/11
Rob, you should knock off the stadiometer error for this guy. 6' 1.25" (in footwear).
[Editor Rob: it looks the same seca make, but it might be the first incarnation, like 'mark 1' and the one I've got is 'mark 2'...they've changed their portable stadiometer now and the latest one looks quite different from the ramsey/my one.

he's got to be either 6ft 1.3ish or under 6ft 1 if he had any sort of sneaker/shoe on. That is the real unknown, sneaker or not!
]
Physics Enemy said on 9/Nov/11
Ohh - There's also the stadiometer error to knock off. Solid 6' 1.25" then, in footwear that is. So he's probably a bit over 6 foot barefoot. 184 tops, maybe 183.5 is more accurate.
Physics Enemy said on 26/Oct/11
He's likely 6 ft flat, I think the measurement was in shoes. If they're going to lie about the measurement I doubt they'd measure him barefoot. They were obviously looking to give him an inflated measurement.
Shaun said on 25/Oct/11
More likely in shoes as Erin is listed at 6'0 and measured 185cm on it. She could have been in converse type shoes maybe. Or is weak 6'1" a little undesirable for a model like 6'3" for a male model? Ramsey always wears flattish sneakers though so he wouldn't be that much shorter than this anyway.
Shaun said on 25/Oct/11
Yup you're right Rob, in fact I zoomed in on the Erin O Connor measurement. He's 186-187cm range NOT 189cm. Although he does look taller than Erin who was measured at 185cm. The thing is more chance he was measured wearing 1 inch sneakers than barefoot. But he does very close in height and build to me ..
miko said on 21/Oct/11
With an ego as big as Ramsay's, I'm suprised he didn't try and go for 6'4.
Physics Enemy said on 20/Oct/11
Maybe this 6' 1.375" was in shoes though. Was it?
[Editor Rob: it is a possibility...it's an unknown!]
Cranberries (18m, 193cm) said on 16/Oct/11
He wears a size 15 2E shoe...
Christian said on 14/Oct/11
Could it be, that the 6-2.5 mark is the last height that is visible in the empty space covered by the measurement tool and Erin O'Connor didn't know how to interpret the measurement? Maybe she didnt lie then?
[Editor Rob: she must have seen the pointers pointing to a mark between 73 and 74, I guess there's always a chance she thought near 73.5 was 6ft 2.5, but I think it's false info she said either way, I think it was done on purpose.]
miko said on 13/Oct/11
I've always said I believe Ramsay was 6'0.5/6'1, I guess this new evidence helps a little.

If he is in any type of footwear whilst being measured it would destroy his height claim.
Editor Rob said on 13/Oct/11
To follow up previous comment, here is a screengrab to show that Ramsay was never measured 6ft 2.5 on the stadiometer:

My best guess is it was 6ft 1 3/8ths ;)
Soviet_Rebel said on 10/Oct/11
6ft no more, but not less
Shaun said on 2/Oct/11
Yeah Romeo is an olive skinned kid, looks kind of odd. Brooklyn looks more like he could be the son of Guy Richie than Beckham!!
James said on 7/Sep/11
Shaun says on 6/Sep/11
Actually you are right, Romeo is the most like David, but he is also the most like Victoria. I'd say Romeo looks the most like his parents. Brooklyn really doesn't look like any of them. Cruz looks more like David.

Romeo kinda looks liek david beckham in the 90's. LOL its funny how they obviously give Romeo a fake tan all the time or his skin color could be natuarlly brown?

Actually James I think Romeo is very much like Victoria and has the same very thin bone structure. I think Cruz looks the most like David.

Ramsay consistently looks about 2 inches taller than Beckham. I think this is spot on at least barefoot. The 6'2.5" is obviously in shoes. Gosh doesn't Beckham look much better with longer hair than the shaved do.

Your not taking into account how ramsey could look 1cm shorter than johnathan ross.

On a sidenote doesn't romeo beckham look like david?
Shaun said on 29/Aug/11
Did anybody see Big Brother last night? Marco Pierre White was on it. I don't normally notice heights on things like that but he really looked a big guy. He was wearing sneakers and didn't look far off the door frame at the end. Towered over everybody when he stood up straight. Certainly he's a legit 6'3", in fact I'd have estimated him at 6'4" he really looks that big.

Brett says on 26/Jul/11 Rob, I forgot to comment on Gordon when i saw him a couple months ago, at the Ivy bar in Sydney... hes nowhere near 187cm...I was shocked to see that he was shorter than me...Id say more like 183-184cm max... ( as you know im 185-186cm). I got very close to him as a friend of mine drunkardly gave him a hug -To my suprise gordon didnt get heated... mind you he was in alot of hot water with the press at that time. He's taller than six foot Janet Street Porter by 1.5"-2 inches.

No its just you Aussies are just ****** because Gordon humiliated your newsreader!! He is spot on 186-87cm. He was even measured on TV at 6'2.5" in shoes (very likely).
Shaun said on 19/Aug/11
He isn't under 6'1". He can look just an inch taller than Beckham as he slouches a lot but when stood straight he does look 1.5"-2' inches taller than legit 5'11" er David Beckham. As I said he looks probably the most similar in height and build than any celeb to myself and I measure a whisker over 6'2" out of bed and 6'1.25" at night and weigh about 15 stone.
James said on 8/Aug/11
rob what about........
jonathan ross 6ft1.25 (186cm)
Gordon Ramsey 6ft1 (185cm)
James said on 7/Aug/11
he could look even a fraction shorter than 185cm next too jonathan ross.
Click Here

Brett might have a point because compared too Johnathan Ross Gordon does look 183-184cm range. even with his hair advantage ross does seem too have an edge on him and i think most belive that jonathan ross is not the 6ft1 1/2 he claims too be.

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

Rob if you look at the youtube videos i posted would you agree that johnathan ross does look a hair taller than him? Will Smith looked taller compared too Jonathan Ross than Ramsey did.

I think gordan should be downgraded too 6ft.05 (184cm). obviously he must have been measured at 189cm in very big shoes or he was just mismeasured?
[Editor Rob: they are pretty close in height, I don't think there'd be more than half inch between them. The 6ft 2.5 measurement was done by the woman, of course he had shoes on, and it could have been a 'lightly' touching head one, I would need to look again if I find the clip.]

Lokks about 6'1" to me.
James said on 19/Jul/11
Conan's hairstlye makes him look taller next too Ramsey.

Gordon Ramsey 6'1 (185cm)
Conan O'Brien 6'4 (193cm)
Tony said on 19/Jul/11
He's 5'11.5 barefoot or 6 feet at best, Bout A year and half before the whole Conan Leno thing, He was on Click Here I believe Norm Mcdonald is the solid 6'1 he claims and he's still hunched, If he stood straight up atleast an inch and half he would have over Gordon. Even standing next to Conan who is 6'4, He atleast looks 4 inches shorter

6 feet
James said on 17/Jul/11
i don't think he's over 185cm
Sam said on 5/Jul/11
He only looks about 6'1" compared to others on his shows, he's obviously over average height but is regularly surrounded by equally tall or taller guys. To me, he often looks about 10 years older than his actual age.
Legend said on 2/Jul/11
6 feet
Vegas said on 22/Jun/11
o'connor is coming out 185cm on the dot and she calls out 6'2.5 for ramsey, 31minute mark, you can't make out if either are wearing footwear though Click Here
James said on 14/Jun/11
Rob did you know gordon has size 15 feet?

As for his height i think yes 183cm is too low. I think maybe 6'0.75 (185cm)? He looks very similar in height to Johnathan Ross.

So
Jonathan Ross 6'1 (185cm)
Gordon Ramsey 6'0.75 (185cm)
[Editor Rob: I don't know about feet that big]
Blaine said on 11/Jun/11
is always looks about 6ft 4 to me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jun/11
6ft2 is not a joke
James said on 2/Jun/11
6'2 is a joke for gordon. look how small he looks in that pic

at 6ft you can look tall and imposing. Slightly shorter than Jonathan Ross as well.

Shaun so i take it you don't belive he is 6'0 (183cm)?
Shaun said on 27/May/11
He doesn't look close to 6'2" next to Beckham, barely looks taller.
Shaun said on 27/May/11
Click Here

Hard to imagine this guy is a weak 6'2". This is not how a near 6'2" guy looks compared to most, I should know! On a very rare occasion though you'll find yourself surrounded by 6'3"-6'6" guys all at once.
Mathew said on 23/May/11
6'1" give or take.
James said on 18/May/11
He looks 6ft to me. then again maybe he does not look 6'1.5 becuase he hangs around very tall chefs on a regular basis?
Ace said on 13/May/11
I was watching an episode of Kitchen Nightmares, and when Gordon enters the restaurant for the first time, the manager immediately states that he was intimidated by how tall Gordon was, followed by the mother citing that he was extremely tall as well. Although I don't think he is 6'2.5, it is clear that he isn't 6'0.5. 6 footers rarely get described as towering. He is definitely close to 6'2.
Somborac said on 12/May/11
He's 6ft EVEN.
Cranberries said on 8/May/11
6'1.5" looks taller than average people, significantly. Cooks are usually small to average in stature; 6'1"-6'2" sounds about right. Certainly is thick-set; he's got some sturdy legs and wrists. 215 lbs. maybe, he's fit too.
Somborac said on 8/May/11
6'2?! Are you kidding me? I'm 6ft with my shoes on & was eye-to-eye when I met him! He's 6ft even!
brooksy said on 7/May/11

Rob do you know if we can find the video where he is measured with the model?If not the name of the episode or the name of the model would be helpful too.

[Editor Rob: it's the F Word, episode with model Erin O'Connor I think.

She was 185cm on the stadiometer (I looked at the video and pretty much this looked bang on), but it wasn't as clear with Ramsey (who I believe was in footwear), Erin was the one who called out 6ft 2.5 when he was getting measured...]
James said on 5/Apr/11
Yeah but rob who knows Gordon could have been wearing 1.5 inche shoes. Ramsey does not look 6'1.5 or 6'2 at all to me.
James said on 4/Apr/11
rob what height did he get measured at on his show?

[Editor Rob: the model got measured first, then Ramsey who if I recall was 6ft 2.5 (at least that is what was said) but I believe this is shoes measurement.

I watched the clip when it was first brought up on here and to be fair, it looked a lot better than the van damme mum measurement!]
James said on 28/Mar/11
Okay maybe 183cm is too low. I think 185cm or 186cm could be on the money for Gordon.

Gordan Ramsey 6'1. (185cm)
Jeremy Clarkson 6'4.5 (194cm)

[Editor Rob: he did get measured on his show, the model got measured then Ramsay, although I think he still had his shoes on for it, we never saw his feet!]
James said on 27/Mar/11
I think he's 6'0. 6'2 is a joke.

I've heard about 6'1.5'' but I've never seen anyone as tall as him so it makes me not want to believe. I can't believe that everyone else is so much shorter
James said on 24/Jan/11
Agree Anonymous he does not look like a 6'2 guy but more like a 6ft guy on television.
Shaun said on 7/Jan/11
Only looks about 1-1.5 inches taller than David Beckham in recent pics but I think he had sneakers on and Beckham boots. But what has this guy done to his hair/face? He's one of the last blokes who needs a hair transplant, surely?
m said on 30/Dec/10
Under 6'2? He always looked much taller than the participants of the cooking shows, I figured he was around 6'5. Maybe he did factor height into the program because he always seemed to be towering over the contestants and if he's really just over 6'1 I doubt that would happen.

he clearly has massive insecuritites, and is very proud of being moderately tall. If you see him on his shows he's always shouting down at people. I bet he specifically picks mostly short, meek people to go on his programmes, and wears high shoes.

No, I don't think height is one off his insecurities, he's got nothing to feel insecure about in terms of height. He generally wears flat sneakers I've noticed.
Shaun said on 25/Dec/10
What makes it obvious to me that he is insecure/nervous is how on edge he always is when presenting. If you want him alosely he is seirously on edge and always looks like he needs to pee. He tends to dancing up and down when speaking and then he gets on with doing something. I think him being a workaholic helps takes his mind off things. He does look 6'1" though.

A mate of mine met him and said he was about 5' 7"!!

Was that mate blind?
tom said on 19/Nov/10
Walked straight past him on the street, when he was filming ramsays kitchen nightmares earlier this year. He was standing still, with a PR woman, looked thinner than he appears on screen and not as tall. Im 5ft 11, and Gordon appeared around 6ft. Possibly 6ft 0.5. He was wearing boots though with heels.
brapp said on 31/Oct/10
oops meant 6ft 0.5 inches

there is a chance gordon could be 6'1 flat.
dave said on 23/Jun/09
hes about 6'2 at least, just take a look at when he met 6'4.5 (6'5 peak) jeremy clarkson on top gear, not too much in it!
Hugh 190cm said on 20/Jun/09
Seems at least 186cm to me. Maybe even a weak 6ft2.
me said on 24/May/09
Yeah, he must about 6'1, 6'2 because they claim he' about 6'2 on Kitchen Nightmares
Anonymous said on 3/May/09
Gordon was measured (in socks) on tv by 6'.5'' model Erin O'Connor as 6ft 2.5 on his series 'The F Word' after they compared heights.
Doug said on 24/Apr/09
Wooaaa I aint got size fifteen feet though. Fifteen? Clown feet LOL. I'm only a UK Size 11, US Size 12 pretty normal for my height. Is this guy really a Size 15?
Doug said on 24/Apr/09
Been watching Hells Kitchen lately. He looks tall, taller than most people noticeably but maybe a whisker under the full 6'2". He reminds me very much of myself in height, build and hair and eye colouring and he also claims to be 15 1/2 stone like myself, 210-220 pounds, in fact I can't think of another celeb who is so similar in shape. Ramsay is my body double LOL. 6'1.5" is about right, maybe 6'2" out of bed like myself.
someGRANDguy said on 7/Mar/09
hi martin
I'm pretty sure Marco is 6'4"? Gordon does look a few inches under him but he'd still be 6'1".

MARCO SHOULD HAVE HIS OWN PAGE. LOL!
daniel1987 said on 4/Mar/09
people people people. i met him at indigo. i am 5'8. the woman taking pictures took a video instead. i am only a couple inches shorter than him. I measured my friend who is 6'1 and he CLEARLY has a couple inches on our friend Ramsay. His height seems to fluctuate alot due to his shoes. But he is NOT OVER 6 feet natrually. i have a facebook picture if anyone wnats:)
T.J. said on 27/Feb/09
in response to SOMBORACS comment.
Gordon cannot be that short. He had 2.5 inches on Meat Loaf who in nowadays is a strong 5'10/5'11" so at Gordons shortest, he's 6'1"
Lenad said on 20/Feb/09
On hells kitchen hes taller than most people. 187cm is a pretty damn good bet.
George said on 20/Feb/09
6'1.5

A few inches taller than most on hell's kitchen, and looked more than an inch, but less than two inches bigger than 6' James May,
Somborac said on 15/Feb/09
I met Ramsay at the book signing at the Indigo at Chapters in Toronto. I'm 6ft and he was maybe an inch shorter. There is even a Hell's Kitchen episode where he yells at Bobby to "GET OUT!". Bobby is about 6'2" and Ramsay was nearly eye-to-eye with him, making it abundantly clear he wears platform-shoes. He's around 5'11"... NO taller. He wears heels during Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares and also, when those shows are edited, they "stretch" his image to make him seem even taller... around 6'2" to be exact, but he is NOT OVER 5'11".
T.J. said on 2/Feb/09
Normally I see him listed at 6'2.5" but I think he's just 6'2"
martin said on 13/Dec/08
there is footage on youtube of ramsey standing next to marco pierre white outside of harveys. and marco is 6'3''. and ramsey looked exactley 6' next to him. if you want to find it just type in marco pierre white on youtube.
G-MANN said on 7/Dec/08
I'd buy 6'1" for Ramsay's height. He's probably the kind of bloke who would exaggerate his height (and the hair would help), he's got a huge ego. But I don't believe these claims of under 6 foot, even though I can't stand the man and it would be hilarious if it turned out that he was faking his height.

This guy is close to 6ft2. A solid 6ft1.5.
Lenad said on 2/Nov/08
He looks ****ing 6 ft 1
miko said on 21/Oct/08
Looking at it again, if Ross is a legit 6"1.5 then Ramsey is close to 6"1.
Orangy said on 19/Oct/08
I'm afraid that you're wrong miko. I watched the same programme and when Jonathan Ross greeted Gordon Ramsey. Ramsey was a good 2 inches taller than Ross.
GUK said on 18/Oct/08
He seemed the same height as Ross, who I believe is slightly under 6ft 1 barefoot i.e. 185 on the nose
miko said on 18/Oct/08
Rob, another dent in the Ramsey 6"2 claims last night, he was on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross (who many believe to be lower than 6"1.5) and looked a solid inch shorter face to face with him and thats if you include Ramsey's hair, and it was Ramsey in the large boots (Ross in fairly flat shoes). I can see him being 6"0 or over but close to 6"2?

Perhaps 6"0.75 is a fairer mark? Add his 1.75" boots and you have 6"2.5.
Jay said on 15/Oct/08
The idea of Gordon being shorter than 6 feet is crazy. He is clearly taller than the average height people.
miko said on 12/Oct/08
Rob, a possible downgrade? He is the same height, possibly shorter than 5"11.5 David Beckham here. I would bet that Ramsey would have the thicker footwear too. I don't like disagreeing with you Rob but 6"1.5 is just too high.

[Editor Rob: when they visited the model's office, we could see clearly the lady was a little under 6ft 1 in her flat footwear. Ramsey was taller and she said, although not clear on playback, he was 6ft 2.5...of course in shoes ;)]
Alucard said on 6/Oct/08
He looks alot shorter.
Somborac said on 13/Sep/08
I meant to say I met him at the Indigo at the Eaton's Centre in Toronto lol. And yeah, 5'11" MAX, and he was wearing shoes with 1/4inch boost.
miko said on 8/Sep/08
Even more proof Ramsey is nowhere near 6"2, in the England vs Rest of the World football match, he was eye to eye with 6"0 Jonathan Wilkes in football boots, who is the same height as Robbie Williams. He was also noticeably smaller than 6"3 ex England goalkeeper David Seaman.

This means Ramsey maxes out at no more than 6"1 barefoot. 6"2 is his Hollywood height.

MD said on 29/Aug/08
Ok, at the end of the show, I was able to tell both Jay and Gordon were in dress shoes.

[Editor Rob: the 6ft 2.5 measurement or 'near that' in shoes actually does seem pretty close. In that program with the model you could see clearly her height when she was against the stadiometer.]
MD said on 29/Aug/08
Gordon was just on the Tonigh Show with Jay Leno, and he was anything over an inch taller than Jay. I did not see there shoes, however. I know Jay was in his dress shoes, but Ramsay could have been in something flatter given what he was wearing (jeans, t-shirt).
Annoyed said on 15/Aug/08
ahahahaha so 6'2.5" is his in shoes height. i see! goodness, yout hink they do that with all footballers heights?
Annoyed said on 3/Aug/08
im a Celtic fan but my Dad is a Rangers fan and in one of his ancient programmes Ramsey is listed at 6'2.5" . maybe you are just a wee bit wrong on this one Rob. i dont know but he does appear to be alot bigger than 6 foot 1 anyway.

[Editor Rob: he was not barefoot when he was measured in the modelling office.]
Anonymous said on 1/Aug/08
I've met him he's 6 foot max! I am 6' 2" (actually more like 6' 2.5") and he even remarked on my height. If I had to guess I'd say he's 5' 11"
Margherita said on 30/Jul/08
He had to be measured in shoes on The F Word. He walks in the room and we don't see him take his shoes off.
miko said on 23/Jul/08
6"2.5 measurement I saw too couldn't have been barefoot. That would make him 6"4 in shoes. He's probably 6"1, and 6"2.5 in shoes.
Cmomo said on 22/Jul/08
I just saw him being measured on "the F word" on channel 4 (UK), he was visiting a modelling agency and he was 6'2.5 on their measuring device although I didnt see if he had shoes on or not.
mah said on 22/Jul/08
haha. this proves rob is bad at his job! just seeing on gordan ramsays. f word. erin oconnor measured him. she is 6'1' he is 6'2.5''
hmm. i dunno whether to believe your poor calculations anymore or whether to add an inch to every celebrity haha

[Editor Rob: Erin was 185cm on the nose so slightly under 6ft 1 so maybe ramsay was slightly closer to 6ft 2.5 *in shoes* unless you saw them taking their footwear off which you didn't! You couldn't see the marking as closely as Erin's 185cm though...Ramsey is no fool.

So I could give him 6ft 1.25 if he's in his 1.25 footwear...or if 1 inch then the 6ft 1.5 was bang on.

Although if Ramsey rounded her to 6ft 1 how do you know she didn't do the same thing with him...]
Anonymous said on 19/Jul/08
even though he towers over everyone on tv, he must wear thick soled shoes or lifts. if anyone wnats, i can send them a picture of my 6'1 buddy (who we recently measured)beside gordon ramsay. he is no more than 6' without shoes gauranteed
Leung said on 10/Jul/08
What
Zach said on 10/Jul/08
i've saw him at Piccadily Circuis in London, and dude was the same as me 5ft 11", no way is he 6ft +, and when i saw him on the Graham Norton show a few weeks back he was wearing mad heels, and he towered over Julie Binoche and Norton
Somborac said on 26/May/08
He was obviously wearing thick soles because when I met him at Indigo, he wasn't wearing thick soles and he was shorter than me, I stand at 6ft. "Dan12333" has the right idea.
Margherita said on 25/May/08
i have met Ramsey and he is a little north of 6 foot tall. out of interest he was on the Best of British show and was the same height as Piers Morgan
Anonymous said on 24/May/08
"6'2'"? "6'6""?!?!?!?, buddy, what the hell are you on? He was obviously wearing thick-soled shoes because when I was on stage with him, he was wearing store-bought shoes with a half-inch sole (as appose to his custom-made shoes that have 2-inch soles)and wasn't even 6ft. I say this because I'm 6ft and was actually a little taller. "Dan12333" was also at Indigo and says the same thing about his height. He's much shorter than he appears on TV.
greg said on 23/May/08
I heard him tell davina macoll he had size 14 not 15 feet. yet size 14 uk is huge for his height dont u think?not that i believe his feet are that big anyway-they dont look it!
Bruce said on 17/May/08
i strongly believe he is 6'2.5 because i've met him before and he was about 4 inches taller than me(5'10.5"). at about ten feet away i actuallt thought he was 6'6" but then when he got closer i realised he wasn't.
Anon2008 said on 6/May/08
I can't see him being shorter than 6'1". I've watched so much of Kitchen Nightmares, Hell's Kitchen, The F Word, etc. And he is almost always taller than the men he is next to, customers or not. It's rare that he is next to a guy taller than himself.
dan12333 said on 3/May/08
i met him at indigo aswell. im 5'8 and he wasnt that much taller than me. id say 5'11-6.05'. my friend whos 6'1 was also clearly taller than him by an inch or 2
Somborac said on 28/Apr/08
I met him at Indigo at the Eaton's Centre today and was surprised to see I was actually a little taller. I'm 6ft, he's around 5'11'"1/2.

I was watching Beyond Boiling Point, Episode 3. At about 3:40 the narrator says "... 6'1" ex-footballer".

Ramsay Fan #420 said on 19/Apr/08
Courtesy of me, someone who's 6ft and who's worked with him and therefore, stood next to him.

Ramsay is 6'1" 1/2and wears thick-soled shoes.

Does look this height a lot of the time, especially when he was on Jay Leno (who is 5'11") and Ramsay didn't have 2 inches on him.
Ramsay Fan #420 said on 29/Mar/08
No, he told me he always wears thick soles because he likes the style and I tried his shoes on and was about a 1/2-inch taller.
SF said on 28/Mar/08
Conan is very tall. Ramsay looks tall on TV, and everybody else seems short except those who are obviously taller than him. I believe his height to be as stated. How would you know it is thick soles? Did he let you touch them?
Ramsay Fan #420 said on 3/Mar/08
I have worked with Ramsay so I have obviously stood next to him. I'm 5'11" and he didn't have 3 inches on me. He's 6'1 1/2", and he was wearing thick soles.
jay said on 25/Feb/08
i met him up close before and he stuck me as being alot shorter than I had thought from tv. I would say 5.9- 5.10 max . he does have a huge head though.
G-MANN said on 3/Feb/08
Ricky Gervais is pretty short, he can't be more than 5'8". Ramsay probably isn't quite as tall as 6'2" (a lot of journalists probably round his height up to this), but he's probably at least 6 foot. He did look unexpectedly short in the photo I mentioned (pity you haven't seen it), but then maybe Tennant and Owen were wearing thicker soles.
Randomer said on 17/Jan/08
He's always seemed pretty tall to me, I'd say 6ft 1.5 is pretty spot-on, maybe ad an extra inch for the hair haha
G-MANN said on 7/Jan/08
I can't find a picture of it on the internet, but in the promotional pictures (shown in maganzines and such) for the Extras Christmas Special he was standing alongside Ricky Gervais with Clive Owen and David Tennant and he was noticably shorter than those two.

[Editor Rob: I watched that finale, he did have fair height on Gervais, but then surprisingly gervais didn't look shorter than those hale+pace guys. Clive Owen was the best 2 minutes of that show.]

ian said on 21/Nov/07
ramsay does look bigger than the majority of people he meets on his show. he was a lot smaller than clarkson, looked about 4 inches smaller. Dave i think 14 ameriacn is actually 13 brit
Greg said on 10/Nov/07
Jeremy Clarkson looked massive next to him, JC is 6ft5 so 6ft 1 looks feasible.
Dave said on 10/Oct/07
I"m 6'4" and 285 lbs, and my feet are size 14 American, which if I remember correctly is 15 Brit, and about 47 or 48 Euro.

So his frame is almost as big as mine, but he's just a skinny little pouf. :-))
AshnarLynx said on 29/Sep/07
He looks big for sure. Massive and tall. I believe he's 6'2. To me he looked even taller at first, but I guess anybody over 6'1 can look really tall if he has such a build.

Melvin said on 14/Aug/07
Yeah what was up on show last night. Ramsey was exactly the same height as Leno as they were cooking side by side. Leno had to be in lifts because I have seen Ramsey once crossing the street and getting into his car and he was not under 6ft.
Chris said on 12/Aug/07
I saw him on the tonight show and didn't look any taller than 5'11" jay leno

weird
Melvin said on 18/Jul/07
This is a celeb I saw once getting into his car. I was walking past at the time. We looked the same height except I was on the pavement. About 6ft 1 would be right for Ramsey as I'm 5ft 9.5 on average and the pavement was about 4 inches high.
Dog said on 20/Jun/07
Stated himself at the start of 2007 London marathon he was 6'1"
OutBenchThis said on 28/Apr/07
Ramsay's about 6'1" or alittle more (186cm)...his large head and thick-soled shoes tend to work in his favour as far as the 6'2" claims go.
jeff said on 1/Feb/07
seen him on top gear a while back. he was at least four inches smaller than jeremy clarkson (6'4"?)
CarbonM5 said on 17/Jan/07
I'm back.

I've stood next to Gordon Ramsay. I'm 5-10 and he is comfortably 6-2.
Linda said on 8/Jan/07
Regarding Conan O'Brien- he's 6'5".......
I always thought Ramsay was a little guy, but he's probably around 6'.
Mikex said on 18/Aug/06
He looked similar in height to 6'2'' David Walliams of Little Britain fame on Ramsay's the F Word this week. Perhaps he was a little shorter than Walliams. 6'1'' to 6'1.5'' maybe.
J-Dog said on 29/Jul/06
Looks 6'1" in the picture you posted Rob.
J-Dog said on 29/Jul/06
He looks like a pretty big man, he looked to be 6'1.5" on his show and TV 6'1" or 6'2" are not out of the question, on his BBC show Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmare, he looks taller than 90% of the people he is around.

Anyone have any pictures of when he met Conan?
TheMan said on 25/Jul/06
I did hear he was 6,2 always seemed quite tall to me. He stated he was about 210 pounds/15 stone on he's programme.
MD said on 24/Jul/06
He looked considerably shorter than Conan O'Brien when he was on his show a few weeks ago. I'm talking at least 4". I couldn't believe it. I had him pegged at 6'0" when standing next to Conan.
Eton said on 24/Jul/06
On TV, I've heard him refer to himself as being, and I quote: 6'2" with size fifteen feet.
Stevie G said on 24/Jul/06
185 cm sounds a little much in my opinion
