How tall is Gordon Ramsay

Gordon Ramsay's Height

6ft 0.75in (184.8 cm)

British Celebrity Chef. He once said: "I was six foot, fast, strong, 19 years of age. So the last thing I expected was to be kicked out Rangers"...then in 2000 said "I'm 6ft 2ins, thick-set and rugged". He was measured using a Stadiometer (like the one I've got) by Erin O'Connor who called out 6ft 2.5 but the actual reading was just under 6ft 1.5. I believe the odds are that he was in Footwear for the measurement. On twitter he mentioned his weight: "6'2 220lbs 100% Scottish".

He hardly sounds Scottish does he rob?
Editor Rob: yeah, he lost his accent. He's as Scottish sounding as Rod Stewart πŸ˜†

Rob, are you certain he was wearing shoes in that clip?
Editor Rob: I'd say it was very probable
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 5/Aug/17
Rob, I'm almost 100% certain he's wearing some kind of elevator shoes. The top part of the shoes look unusually tall and bulgy. Also, I can tell that his feet are at an unnatrual angle by the way his pants and ankles are sitting. They are most likely the 3-3.5 inch type of elevators. I'm surprised that virtually no one in the comment section of the post recognized the odd shape of his shoes. Click Here It goes to show you that most people's eyes aren't trained to be able to recognize elevator shoes when they see a pair.
Editor Rob: it is hard to tell. I think 1 inch internal lifts in boots are harder to spot than an elevator shoe itself.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 31/Jul/17
Near 6'1". He's quite blunt and honest with 'Food.'

His listing is good, guys.
hazzaq1 said on 28/Jul/17
He's just 184cm tbh Editor Rob , , seen him a lot of times over the years in America on beaches I am 187cm in shoes and I have walked right next to him a lot of times, he is no taller than me, I bet his height is 184cm I think this listing of 6'1 is fairly accurate to be more precise Editor rob you could list as 6'0.5 I think that stadiometer was certainly no more than 6'1.5 and he was in shoes even you think you did not see them in the clip , Do you think the 6'2.5 was fake
thunderbolt said on 28/Jul/17
Editor rob if you think he was really measured at 6'1.3 and you think it was in footwear you could downgrade him down him to 6'0 even he can't have been barefoot for a reality tv show could have been wearing over 1 inch footwear , looking at YouTube videos of him with F1 driver jenson button who is 182cm and Gordon is not really much taller, starting to think he is only 6'0, just out of interest editor Rob as it is clear his height he claims of 6'2 is proven false do you think his claimed shoe size of 15 is too ! I always believed he was the height he claimed until you found the stadiometer evidence, if you type in Gordon ramasy jenson button into youtube I think there is enough evidence to list him as 6'0 he is even shorter than a 6'1 listed Jonthan ross too !
Slim 182 cm said on 27/Jul/17
184 or 185 are reasonable. If anything I'm starting to think the full 6'1 is probable.
Renshaw said on 20/Jul/17
editor rob I can't prove Erin's height, she is referred to as being 6ft , and being a super model I imagine that she was probably at the higher end of the height required to be a female super model If you have seen the 2007 F word episode you will see that erin is a little shorter than Ramasy as I said in a previous post I did meet her a few years ago now . I am 6ft 1 ins and she was eye to eye with me in normal shoes, so to me she was 6ft as she is reported to be in the supermodel world. I think the stadio meter was a difficult one the photos you provide are interesting however I keep making the same point that you can't tell someone's height from waist up shots or if they were in different footwear, from different angles, it is clear as you say he was no where the 6'2.5 that Eric said, I think based on my encounter he has must have been wearing very low heels, but of you did not see if he had footwear on the measurement it was not a barefoot measurement ? , I know Gordon usually claims 6'2 he can't be that but why would he have have claimed 6'3 on the nightly show which some on here say he asserted, I would be surprised rob if Gordon ramasy was under 6ft 1ins without footwear, so I think your listing of 6'0.75 is quite fair . All the best.
Rebecca said on 19/Jul/17
Gordon Ramasy is over 6ft without shoes I am 100% sure of it, I am 5ft 1 inches and when I met Gordon about 4 1/2 years ago , the top of my head hit just under his chin. And based on comparisons between my husband and myself that would put Gordon at about 6'1 Not scientific I know,but that's
my frame on reference.for as long as I can remember Gordon was claiming he was 6'1". He even mentions it in his early cooking shows, he inflates things as he got more of a celebrity he could never ever have been based on my encounter with my husband been 6'2 1/2 in shoes so I think that f word measurement was like editor rob asserted slightly inflated
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
Rather than Ramsay and becks being 5 cm apart I think 3.5 or 4 cm between them. Making becks 5'11.5 or Gordon 6'0.5, I knew the 187 listing was off, but he is lean and muscular, so he appears taller with a thin lean waist and a big chest. Proportion wise he's built like a 187-188 guy, but his height isn't. Still tall, but not as tall as we think.
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
Ps, I ain't damning him, in fact it's the complete opposite, he's one of my favourite celebs, I really like Hell's Kitchen and hotel hell, watched heaps of episodes, 184 barefoot, 186.5 rounded up to 187 in shoes.
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
He's just 184 tbh,
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
The guys lucky to be a flat to strong 6 footer, yet alone 6'1. Guys, read the desc, he was measured 184, while possible wearing shoes!!!?
Editor Rob: it was about 6ft 1 3/8th on the stadiometer, they had walked into the hall in the clip and spotted it and decided to measure, afterwards Ramsay appeared to start walking away.
I am sure he is that mark with footwear on.
spencer said on 15/Jul/17
I those who are disputing this height are right definitely not this tall. Jonathan ross is 6ft 1.5 and Gordon Ramsey is smaller.I am watching him on Hotel hell on Channel 47 and he looks to be 6ft tall next to visual clues like doors frames etc. 6ft2+ shoes is going to be mighty close to top of door frame ehich clearly he isn't. 6ft-6ft1 max, I think you should take heed of these comments and downgrade him even you have said the stadiometer measurement from the F word was wrong
bentham said on 15/Jul/17
I think he is either 6'2 or just under. He struggles to look only 6'0 " and I think he at best looks 6'1 1/2".Looked close enough to get a 6ft 2listing here when next 6'0 celebrities quite a noticeable height difference between 5'11 beckham . Looked more like a 6ft 2 guy than a 6ft range to me, quite a tall man
baxter said on 13/Jul/17
You just have to look at him with 6'1.5 Jonathan Ross or 6'4 Conan o Brian over the years to realize he's much nearer 6'1 than 6'3 ! Do you think he might be 6'1 flat today, Rob? Also, Don't know about his "playing days" as there have been a lot of factual inaccuracies but if he was 6'0 at 19 I cannot see him growing 3 inches !
Renshaw said on 12/Jul/17
I have no idea about Gordon ramasy's exact height, but Erin o Connor is listed as being 6ft tall is a supermodel can't see them lying about it and this was many years ago. If you search the web you will see for yourself. I am 6ft 1 ins tall in standard and was eye to eye with Erin when I met her a few years ago in London , and she was wearing normal shoes no heels ,so I am convinced that based on that F word episode Gordon was 6ft 2 ins tall without shoes .This is my opinion but Gordon is taller than Erin , what other evidence is needed? If Gordon was 5 ft 11 ins 6ft 0 ins as some are trying to assert then I would say that Erin was only 5ft 9 to 5ft 10 ins but I can't because I know that Erin was 6 ft!! I think Gordon must be 6'2
Editor Rob: he can't be 6ft 2 because he was measured just under 6ft's right there in the video, Erin called it out wrong.

Whether on purpose or not I don't know.
bentham said on 12/Jul/17
I could see an argument for 6'1 or 6'1.5 185-187cm but I have no idea where 6'3 190cm came from! Never looked that tall ever I saw Gordon Ramasy several years ago at Wentworth Golf Club. I'm 6'3 and was comfortably taller than him but he is quite Big built guy , which I guess adds to his height appearance but any claims of 6'0 or 5'11 are ridiculous !!
Mr Anonymous said on 11/Jul/17
Gordon Ramasy height of 6'2 and shoe size 15 Beckman was always listed as 5'11 in his football playing days and he claims 6'0 for argument's sake lets call Beckman 5'11.5 well in several pictures there is not much height difference between and Ramasy His natural posture, however, is great on TV which helps him to look taller than he actually is . Never imagined him as being particularly that tall,I always thought of Gordon as sort of gentleman like 6'0 . I'd bet he is somewhere in the 5'11.5- 6'0 range. I cannot see him over 6'9 !!!, it is dishonest of Gordon to say over the years 6'2 let alone 6'3 it is a myth Gordon has ever been over 6'0 without his shoes !!
mickdavies said on 10/Jul/17
6'0 is about right. I'm 6'1.5 and was comfortably taller than him so any guesses of 6ft 2 or more is totally bogus.
RisingForce said on 8/Jul/17
I'm not sure Erin O'Connor's exact height who called out Gordon Ramsay's height as 6'2.5 on that 2007 episode of the F word , but one thing I'm sure about Gordon Ramasy he is at least 2 inches shorter than the 6'2 he claimed to be. There is undisputed Evidence to support this
marable79 said on 7/Jul/17
in one of his shows a years ago he said he is offended when a woman says "i expected you to be a lot taller I doubt he is 6 ft 2.
Blake said on 3/Jul/17
Oh yh Rob here is a photo I found of them both on Gordons instagram Click Here
Editor Rob: looks about 3 inches smaller in the photo
marable79 said on 2/Jul/17
I know Gordon Ramasy's claimed height of 6'2 has been disputed on here , I am 6ft 1 ins tall and was eye to eye with Gordon when I met him in may 2007 at a book signing in new jersey , I had a few pictures taken with him he was wearing normal leather shoes,so I am convinced that Gordon was only 6ft tall. This is my opinion but like you said editor Rob you think he was measured using a Stadiometer by Erin O'Connor and reading was just under 6ft 1.5. I but your not sure whether he was in Footwear for the measurement.
what other evidence is needed? For myself this is the best evidence , comparing Gordon to other celebrities who we know the heights like David Beckman who has himself said he is 5'11 tall If Gordon was 6tft 2 ins then I would say that Beckman was 6'1 as he is virtually the same height of Ramsasy but Beckman was a fraction shorter than 6'0 listed Azarenka when they met, but I can't because I know that Gordon was 6 ft!! I can't say anymore than that so I hope this helps rob ! but I have met him and can say that in my opinion he was definitely 6 ft tall. Kind regards

@ Sandy Cowell - Hi mate!

But what I did in commenting on how embarrassing it is to make spelling mistakes and in the process of this spelling embarrassing wrong is... well embarrassing, and taking the biscuit! I think that doing a "correction time" with faults is amusing. Someone probably will notice the faults in every correction time that you do, I would think maybe it's best not to do more than 2 lots because if you get it wrong on further occasions then that WOULD be embarrassing!

I hope you like what you have seen in the "General Height" section, some of the things that were said were unsavoury but at least there was some amusement provided for us. I never even got a thanks for sending a reply back when she first came on the "General Height" section telling us about her issues.

I found an interesting random celeb just before 8:00 this morning, the random celeb was Shirley Henderson!

I reckon Mr Ramsey is about 6'0.625"! I am going halfway between 6'0.5" and 6'0.75" - But I can't vote for that! He strikes me as a tall man but not a man who is pushing on being of a "stand out" tall height. I don't care what anyone says, I think at 6'1" + a man is starting to standout a bit in terms of height, although obviously not anywhere near as much as a 6'5" + man would! He has always struck me on his cooking programs as being tall but not that tall, maybe he is not that close to 6'1" for me then. He could even be 6'0.5"


@ Rampage - Hi!

I think that measurement seems about right to me as it ties in roughly with how tall I predict him to be!

Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jun/17
@ Nik - Hi Nik, mate! I will go and have a look in the 'General Heights' section! πŸ‘

There's only one thing worse than making a spelling mistake and that is doing a 'correction time' with faults in it!!! It has happened to me! Then you wonder if it's worth correcting again, because who's going to notice anyway, but 9 times out of 10, you go ahead and do it because someone somewhere WILL notice! 😦

@ Tony - Hello Tony! If I was a gambling type of person, my money would be on any 6ft2+ reading for Gordon to be, as you mentioned, his height WITH shoes - definitely! πŸ‘
Editor Rob: honestly, do not lose any sleep over spelling mistaiks! πŸ˜‰

It's a shame we have versions of English which differ. I'm sure many Americans aren't aware of all the little spelling variations and vice versa.

Definitely confusing and the Web has amplified it.

I am curious about Gordon ramasy , if you think he was measured just under 6'1.5 in shoes then 6'0.5-6'0.75 without shoes is most his height then why do you think he keeps mentioning his height as being 6'2 without shoes, he says it a lot on hotel hell, going back to that f word with Erin o Connor when he was measured, who called out 6ft 2.5 but you the actual reading was just under 6ft 1.5, how sure are you, because if he was was 6'2.5 in shoes then he would be close to 6'2 without shoes. I do not think you were wrong he does not look 6'2 does he, finally Rob how tall do you think his wife Tana is , in pictures when she has heels on she is quite close to Gordon I cannot find her height listed she looks 5'8-5'9 range ?
Nik said on 10/Jun/17
Correction Time!

I was commenting onspelling mistakes and guess what?! - I have made a * spelling mistake! It sums up how I feel as well which is embarrassed!
Embarrassed is the correct spelling of this word, as you know, not embarresed! I think that I am going to find a hole to jump in!

Nik said on 10/Jun/17
@ Sandy Cowell

My Mum and I are often guilty of spelling things wrong, and some of the words we struggle with are enbarressingly easy to spell! We have always been OK at spelling throughout our lives as well!
I will tell you another thing as well, I am sure I have seen someone called nik prowling round the website before now too!
I also went onto Hitler's page to cast my vote on Thursday!

Well I'll let you into a little secret: Jaffa the bumble bee (🐝) likes to go on Hitler's page, but he used the public lavertory before his visit today!
Nik said on 7/Jun/17
@ Sandy Cowell

Yes there sure is! I have seen a few of his comments in recent months and he likes to go on this page, as I do too. It must be very confusing for people on this page because some of the comments are from Nik (who is 5'11.5") and some of them are from me! The posts on the 11th April and 18th May are from my namesake but all the other ones (for my sins) are ones that I have made. He seems like a genuine commenter so I like to give him a thumbs up when I see his postings.

Gordon Ramsey can't go more than two words without swearing! I think he is between 6'0.5" and 6'0.75", which one I should go for, I don't know! I think that 6'0.75" is the tops for him.

Sandy Cowell said on 6/Jun/17
@ Nik - Is there another Nik prowling around? One who seems to be 5ft11.5 and spells his name like you do?

Today Gordon f**king Ramsay can have 6ft0.75 from me - a tiny rise on last time!

I think is Gordon Ramasy closer to 6'. I'm 5' 11.5" without shoes and I stood two feet from him once at a filming of a hotel hell and he seemed to be my height. With his physique though, he could definitely look taller
WeeburaiJones said on 8/May/17
6'2" seems a bit tall for him, but he's still taller than most contestants on Hell's Kitchen, so 6'1" seems appropriate.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Apr/17
He's definitely overcooked the botox and fillers now, looking like a hamster nowadays. He looked better a few years back with only moderate procedures. He swears like that in front of his children too, excessive, overcooks that too!

@Editor Rob
have you ever watched his first Television series I think it from 1998 called boiling point when he set up his first restaurant in London , the episodes are all on YouTube. I have been watching some of them, on an episode he mentioned his height as being 6'1 when asked about how he keeps fit as you have to be active working on your feet all day, that is more or less in line with his true height especially as you think on that Stadiometer the actual reading was just under 6ft 1.5 and you believed the odds were that he was in Footwear for the measurement I cannot how and why he would have claimed 6'3 ! on the recent nightly show as someone mentioned on here, because surely Gordon was just having a laugh and perhaps inflating height for tv because surely he must know he is not that height and you would think he would think that viewers would know he is not 6'3 if they saw him next to ryan Clarke who is 6'4 so if it is true about the 6'3 what do you make of it rob?
Editor Rob: Nik, I watched that series yes, but can't remember him claiming a height, but if he said 6ft 1, at least he was once more honest about it...but then maybe he listened to that model saying 6ft 2.5 and thought 'sounds good to me' and believed it.

I still don't know if Gordon told her beforehand to say a height, or if it was just an honest mistake, you know, the kind referee's sometimes make ;)
Nik said on 5/Apr/17
@Editor Rob

there's no need for all that effing and blinding. It shows a lack of vocabulary...

It's probably just done to spice up the program!
Editor Rob: that could be true...I don't know if that will help ratings. Good humour and interesting chat might.
bazza said on 4/Apr/17
just under 6' 1"... just short of Jonathan Ross.
Herongate said on 3/Apr/17
Hi Rob mike 2 is certainly right gordon did say on the recently nightly show he was 6'3 in bare feet I found it on you tube. What do you make of it, because surely Gordon was just having a laugh and perhaps inflating height for tv because surely he must know he is not that height barefoot and strangely on a clip online from the 2007 london matharation at the start he said on bbc tv he was 6'1 ? When you said you think he was measured on that stadiometer by the supermodel Erin O connor which I think was filmed in December 2006 on the f word , at just below 6'1.5 and you think he was in footwear, how sure were you, I cannot find any video online of that programme, lets assume if he was measured at just under 6'1.5 in bare feet if he was to wear very large heeled footwear or some lifts he could reach 6'3 ! most unlikely but I think he was barefoot I say that because he looks very similar in height to jonthan ross dosen't he, do you think his true height is between 6'0.6 to 6'0.75 ? because surely he is no where 6'3 even in massive footwear!
Arch Stanton said on 1/Apr/17
I don't know why he would claim that but it's dishonest as he would surely remember Erin measuring him and know what he is. The Hoff and Rylan Clarke would laugh in his face if he tried claiming 6 ft 3 with either of them.
Editor Rob: Arch, I've literally burned all my Ramsay cookbooks after what he said...
Anonymous said on 31/Mar/17
His listed height seems right, looked 6ft 1 with Bradley Walsh on the nightly show on itv.
Nik said on 31/Mar/17
@Editor Rob

The height police should come and take him away and lock him up in a cell! Ha ha

In fact he ought to be in custardy!

His language is appalling by the way! This is not a reflection of his real life personality and is just done to spice up the program. ,I know someone who met him and she said he was a nice person.

He probably is about 6'0.75" by the way.
Editor Rob: there's no need for all that effing and blinding. It shows a lack of vocabulary...
mike 2 said on 30/Mar/17
Rob this really strange, I was watching him on the nightly live show with frank skinner the other day , and I had to play it back on the internet youtube video about a dozen times because there was a scene when Gordon mentioned to frank skinner when his mircophone piece came out of shirt, and he said I suppose the young girl found it hard to reach me as I am at least 190cm in my stocking feet which is 6'3!!!, now I know from what you have said Rob he cannot be that height unless he was wearing some insane shoe lifts, Do you Gordon must have just been silly because surely he is not 6'3 barefoot ! because you said on that stadiometer that he really measured just under 6'1.5 as opposed to 6'2.5 and you said you were sure he was in footwear- if he was then he is barefoot 6'0.5 - 6'0.75 surely? or if he was barefoot in the measurement then just under 6'1.5, i think you should listen and watch this rob on youtube! he did say 99.9% he is 6'3 ! in stocking feet!
Editor Rob: Ramsay is a real piece of work, 190cm barefoot!!!...if there was a crime against height, he'd be serving a life sentence 😑 πŸ˜„
charlie1 said on 24/Mar/17
I've been watching him on soccer aid from 2012 Rob with some retired goalkeeper I cannot name who is 6'6 maximum. . if you imagine picture of yourself Rob with Brandon Routh. There's a 6 inches between you two . If you watch the video of Gordon Ramasy beside that goalkeeper There's at least the same difference between them (6 inches) he is barely up to that goalkeepers chin. That would make him 6'0". If he's even that. Looks just slightly average height to me. If David beckham is 5'11" maximum. Ramsay never looks much bigger Ramsay at 6'2" is just silly Gordon doesn't look over 6'0" to me. I really think rob you downgrade him to 6'0.
Editor Rob: was it edwin van der sar I presume, yeah that guy did tower the other players from the soccer aid a few years ago.
mike2 said on 19/Mar/17
I've heard claims that Gordon Ramsay is not 6'2 as he claimed . Some say he is 6'1" or even 6'0". I myself thought he was an actual 6'2 or even 6'3 " because He towers over many in his shows, until I saw the stadiometer photo where he was measured at 6'2.5 when really it was more like just under 6'1.5 do you think rob he could be just 6'0 barefoot ? I really do not see how he was ever anywhere near his claim of 6'2
Editor Rob: mike, I think the measurement was enough to say he can measure 186cm range in over 6ft barefoot seems quite sensible.
bernice said on 10/Mar/17
editor rob Gordon ramasy has been quoted and has claimed as 6ft 2 tall although he measured on the stadio meter you said somewhere between 186- 186.5 as opposed to the 6ft 2.5/189cm, and you said you think he was in shoes, it is strange because on hotel hell and other shows he looks so much taller than men who are average height or slightly above average, he must wear large heeled footwear to give him a bigger appearance, I think he is between 6'0 - 6'0.5 barefoot so how tall do you think he is barefoot ?
Editor Rob: a 6ft 0.5 guy is still in the tall range, you'd expect him at times to seem quite dominant, especially as his hairstyle has a bit of volume and his personality is a very domineering type, maybe adding to his perception of being a 6ft 2 range guy.
HSom said on 10/Feb/17
So he has said on occasion he's 6'2, he was measured on camera as 6'2.5.
Rob decided it was 6'1.5 and put him at 6'0.75.
Editor Rob: It is a simple fact he was measured close to 186.5cm, nowhere near 6ft's on camera, the proof is irrefutable.

Anybody can watch the video and see he measured under 187cm.

The only question whether it was agreed beforehand that the model would add an inch (maybe at his behest, if so then it's a classic example of Fake News in plain sight) or whether it was an honest mistake...which is quite possible.

Click Here.

They came into her agency and she talks about measuring him, so she is just under 6ft 1, then Ramsay goes under and pushes it up and settled over 186 and under 187, it looked right around 186.5 to me, which of course is miles from being 6ft 2.5/189cm πŸ˜‚

And I believe he's in his shoes there.

So this guy actually grew a bit in his early adulthood. That's always good news for me :))

Editor Rob have you ever watched a old series I think it from 1998 called boiling point, the episodes are all on YouTube, I heard something very interesting Gordon was said he was 32 years old! and was 6'3! I never heard that before, he usually claims 6'2, I think he is 6'0.5-6'1 what do you think about that old quote from Gordon Ramasy about being 6'3!
Editor Rob: Nigel/amy/bernice, he probably sniffed too many cooking fumes when he said that πŸ€”

He should chill out a bit more and less hypo... not good for health! He looks as listed.
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Dec/16
I don't watch this guy, but I know he's tall from pictures! They have to bleep out his every other word!
I'll give him 6ft0.5 and that's my final offer!

@ Egill olafursson - yes, mate, we might Google but please don't jump to conclusions about what we get up to in our spare time! Over and out.
Egill olafursson said on 10/Dec/16
Oi! You guys don't get it do you? Gordon is me mate and he is like 1 inch shorter than me, while I am 166. Keep on dreamin, googleing tossers.
Dingus said on 7/Nov/16
His somewhat stocky build makes him appear 6'00.00". However, somewhere around 6'01.00" seems accurate.

Rory said on 18/Oct/16
What I find a bit strange is if Erin o Connor measured 185cm then that means she's very close In height to Ramsay we assume, yet she called out 6'2.5 for him which is odd to announce someone as 1.5 inches taller than you when you can see and the viewers can see in fact you're the same height basically.
Editor Rob: nearly every viewer would have taken what she said, I think you had to pause the video and realise where the 6ft mark would be to see it was a good inch lower. But maybe it was an honest mistake...or it was pre rehearsed and Ramsay told her to say that figure.

In the world of TV, reality situations aren't always what it appears to be.

Just ran into him in a shop, he's definitely 6'2", in sneakers at least. Taller than my 6'1" bf wearing oxfords.
Brett said on 19/Aug/16
Rob, In Shoes, Im like 189cm ish... ( youd imagine shoes give an Inch or even 3cm in my case) so Id say hes probably at best 184cm barefoot.'

One things for sure he is not 6'1 and in no way or form even close to whatever he has claimed.

Funnily enough, I saw Rick Yune not long ago, and he was similar height to me until I saw his shoes...he was wearing those old 1990s style Buffalo shoes with like 2-3 inch heel haha, so hes definitely a ringer for heights that one!
Editor Rob: if Ramsay had a near 1 inch shoe for his measurement, then a 184cm barefoot would make sense.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/16
I think he's well worth a page here. Remember, he created the Ram!
Arch Stanton said on 9/Aug/16
He's not as low as 6 ft, but yes, 6'0.5 can often look right.
TJE said on 8/Aug/16
Rob, how about 6'0.75 for Chef Ramsay? I doubt those shoes are only a cm thick. Thin overall? Sure, but more than a cm.
Editor Rob: yeah I think overall on the balance of probablities, almost 6ft 1.
Brett said on 8/Aug/16
Rob, hope you are well.. its been a good while.

I saw Gordon up close recently in Sydney as we have a mutual friend ( hes a young well known chef)...

Anyhow, I met him in person, in the Ivy in Sydney, shook his hand... and as you know Im 185-186cm, he was definitely slightly shorter than me.

Probably closer to 6ft even.
Editor Rob: I don't think I'd go that low since he did measure almost 6ft 1.5 in a shoe of some sort (well 95% sure of it).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/16
Rob, have you thought about adding Marco Pierre White?

I think the 190cm club for him but maybe hit 191cm in his 20's
Editor Rob: years ago I did, but I wasn't sure if he was worth at the time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jun/16
Rob, how likely is 187-188cm out of bed for this guy?
Editor Rob: it could be...I doubt the time of day he got measured was late from the video, but daytime.
If I buy 4 inches said on 19/Jun/16
If you look on his instagram, you can spot his large shoes. Maybe he's even bigger or even smaller.

I saw hI'm personally in Sheffield waiting in 2010 outside a restaurant to film ramseys kitchen nightmares. He was with his PA...I'm 5 feet 11 and a bit, he is surprisingly trim and didn't look over 6 feet 1 to me. A weak 6 feet 1...possibly 6 feet and a half. He has tall hair.

I've just been watching some kitchen nightmares, where he totally TOWERS over everyone, even guys who seem above average. My theory is that he wears massive shoes or even lifts to give him that towering on screen presence, not that he needs it, he's already a decent height. This might be the same case in Hell's Kitchen and other shows, who knows.

He is taller than most people in his shows, sometimes he has over a foot on some of the women, but he looks quite average sitting down. An enigma for sure, have to see him in person to come to a conclusion.
Marcus said on 12/Feb/16
Edit: Ramsay seems to be wearing sneakers, while Ross is wearing dress shoes in that vid (see the video end). Could that account for that much height difference though?
Marcus said on 12/Feb/16
Hi Rob, have you watched this backstage video of Gordon Ramsay and Jonathan Ross? They're both listed as 6'1" but Ross is looking noticeably taller in this vid- although we can't tell footwear. Either Ross is really a bit taller than Ramsay, or Ramsay is, for some reason, not wearing any shoes while Ross is.

Click Here

What do you think?
Editor Rob: they don't look much apart there. Ramsay looked to have some type of sneaker, impossible to say what it was.
Chris said on 21/Jan/16
Wait a second Rob, you think Ramsay is a full inch taller than Calzaghe from that line up pic? The top of gordon's much thicker hair may be a whisker over, but that's it. And I thought Calzaghe was well reported to be 5'11" no?
Editor Rob: I'm saying Gordon can look not much taller, so at times he can look closer to 6ft than 6ft 1 range, but it's undeniable he did get measured a fraction over 6ft 1 in most likely a normal shoe.
Chris said on 18/Jan/16
Rob, how do you explain this pic with Will Ferrell and Patrick Kielty? Click Here
Editor Rob: I would doubt he's standing as tall as he could, although in the team line up you can see gordon right beside Calzaghe
The Exorcist said on 6/Jan/16

6'1" is tall. Around the 90th percentile I think. He will be taller than most of the people at his height.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jan/16
I got a good look at Marco Pierre White a while back and he looks to be a genuine 6'3 guy.
Marcus said on 4/Jan/16
Thought he was 6'2" actually. For some reason he's always one of the tallest people in his shows..
Adam 1.88 m said on 17/Dec/15
I'm on a P&O cruise at the moment and I met Marco Pierre White and had a photograph taken with him. I had 1-2 cm more footwear than him and he still looks taller in the photo. Do you think he could be 6ft 3 Rob?
Editor Rob: that's a kind of range that Marco has been called before.

[Editor Rob: yes a stray 'nt]
James B said on 21/Jun/15
Ramsey is tall but not compared to some of the chefs he works with
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jun/15
[Editor Rob: unfortunately it is an unknown, I've went with the positive in this case...but he could be 6ft 0.75 or 6ft 0.5]

Remember he looked 6'0.5 with both Hoff and Rylan, in fact Rylan could look a full 4 inches taller, but I think he had on heels.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/15
I knew this would happen eventually
Sam said on 8/Jun/15
Yeah, with his best posture, I'm sure a barefoot Ramsay could measure near this mark. 6'0.75" is basically what I see him at, but quarter inches can be almost impossible to parse from 6'0.5"s or 6'1"s at times!
Andrea said on 5/Jun/15
He could even have been in big shoes, like 1.2-1.3 inches, and be more 6' flat :)
Sorry for the question but what's the sense of trying celebrities to the 1/4 inch and not being able to see an inch difference? I personally can't say that much on him because i haven't seen enough but since you added him on here you must have looked at him at some point!
[Editor Rob: actually I watched the program again, there was a moment in the segment with the models where a rough idea of his shoe is seen Click Here. I don't think this is a big shoe, certainly I wouldn't have guessed more than 0.75 style. Although they cut the video very quick I felt Erin was about to start walking off as though they both have their shoes on...I think the odds are that this might be the case.]
Andrea said on 5/Jun/15
Rob, you usually are very precise in your listings, also giving quarter inches to people and you cannot say if there's more chance Gordon was measured in shoes or not? I mean, assuming he was wearing a "typical" one inch shoe, we're talking about an inch difference (between barefoot and not)... Don't tell me you can't say if he's more a big 6' or a big 6'1! The fact he himself claimed to be 6' is quite a giveaway... Then, he decided to add the "famous" 2 inches with fame!
[Editor Rob: unfortunately it is an unknown, I've went with the positive in this case...but he could be 6ft 0.75 or 6ft 0.5]
an anonymous peach said on 5/Jun/15
If he was 6 foot at 19, I doubt he managed to grow 1.3 inches after that. He may have just been rounding down his height or he actually did grow .25 or .5 of an inch at 19, but 1.3 inches? Very unlikely.

6' 0.25/.5" seems fair. 184cm range.
grizz said on 3/Jun/15
Rob, I think that measurement was with shoes on. He really looked only an inch or so taller than Kimmel, who you have listed at 5ft11.25in (and I agree with your listing). So, he's 6ft0.5in barefoot IMO.
Sam said on 1/Jun/15
Yeah, I think he's a weak 6'1" based upon everything I've seen, I can't see him as low as just above six feet even but again I can't really see him as anything over the 6'1" mark. Occasionally he'll be on camera with a contestant or celebrity who measures 6'4"-6'6" and I would say he consistently looks 3-5 inches shorter.
[Editor Rob: he definitely was measured nearly 6ft 1.5 on the stadiometer. If he was in shoes (and it is a good chance) then maybe 6ft 0.5-0.75 range.
Did they take shoes off to measure, the stadiometer I think was in offices in a hallway...maybe he didn't!]
Kourosh said on 14/May/15
agree with arch stanton hes got more than an inch on jimmy kimmel. More like 1.25 inches to 1.4 possibly, but still he is not anywhere near 6'2. He is probably hovering around 6'0.75 to just flat 6'1.
[Editor Rob: the only myster with Ramsey is whether he had any footwear for his measurement.

If he was barefoot he is 6ft 1 3/8ths. If not, then anywhere in 6ft 0.25-1 range could be possible.]
Arch Stanton said on 3/May/15
That's more than an inch on Kimmel, hair or not. Still, a smidge under 6'1" is possible.
Sam said on 24/Apr/15
I just saw Fred Willard appear on Hell's Kitchen, Rob has him at 6'1.5" peak and 6'1" now. It appeared that Willard still edged out Ramsay when they shook hands IMO.
Verba said on 13/Mar/15
I just saw that video too.. same shoes, good posture on both of them. Probably the best evidence there is that he isn't a big 6'1 footer.. more like a strong 6'0 footer (6'0.75). Never really looked like a strong 6'1 guy to me anyway.

Maybe it's time for a downgrade?

Dorian said on 16/Feb/15

Big hair, a big frame and boots can help him look taller than he is.

6'1 range seems fair but he has looked shorter on more than 1 occasion.
Andrea said on 10/Jan/15
Joe is one of the judges in the italian version of Masterchef... That's why i asked that! Sam do you believe Gordon was measured barefoot or with shoes on? I mean, Rob sometimes tries to be as precise as possible, giving 1/4 inches and cannot say if there's more chance he was measured in shoes or not! We're talking about a big inch difference... I can't say anything because i've seen very few things of him but if Rob has him on the site, he must have seen some stuff, i hope!
Sam said on 30/Dec/14
I believe Joe is a solid six footer and Graham is 6'2", may be a fraction more. Sometimes Graham can look at least an inch over Ramsay, sometimes less. Contestants have noted they are all tall.
I like Masterchef, it's the one American Ramsay show that doesn't feel like Ramsay is just going through the raging motions and parodying himself. Kitchen Nightmares was far better in the UK version than in the now ended US version.

He's not calling Gordon Ramsay weak. He means that he believes Gordon is a little less than 6'1", or that he's someone who could pass as 6'1", but might not actually be the full 6'1".

That's an interesting comparison though. In looking Novelli does actually look tall range but he's shorter than quite a few in comparisons, I think he might be near 6 ft but I doubt 6 ft 2. He does look near it in that photo if you're sure the other guy is a solid 6'1!
Arch Stanton said on 31/Aug/14
[Editor Rob: I bumped into another chef last month, nick nairn who actually looked in the 6ft 1-1.5 range.]

I'm with Sam on this one that Ramsay looks 6'1 max most of the time. I suspect that the 6'1.5 and 6'2 measurements were in shoes
Sam said on 31/Jul/14
What height would be if he was measured there with a typical shoe? I think a flat 6'1" fits Ramsay best, if anything he can seem to be a bit under the 6'1" mark rather than over it much of the time.
[Editor Rob: if he was in a normal shoe he could very well be nearly an inch smaller and more in the 6ft 3/8ths range.]
grizz said on 25/Jul/14
Next to 182 cm Jimmy Kimmel, he doesn't seem much bigger. I give him 184-185 cm max.
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in said on 19/Jul/14
Rob, ive been watching him a lot on hells kitchen and kitchen nightmares lately. If you watch some of those videos you will see he definitely doesn't look any taller than 6'1 standing next to other people. I think that the just under 6ft 1.5 measurement was in shoes. I really would advise you check this one again.
Lenad is sexy said on 16/Jul/14
I estimate 184cm judging by how he looks on hells kitchen standing next to people. He can look just average height at times sometimes but that's due to his habit of hunching over and making funny head movements when he's berating the contestants
bobbbyyyy said on 13/Jul/14
on the jonathan ross show gordon was shorter than him and jonathan ross claimed to be 186, so gordon must be around 184 or just 6ft. he claimed he was 6ft, but that depends on whether he was wearing shoes at 19 or not.

I do think Gordon is a 6'1 flat guy, who with boots and big hair can on occasion give a 6'2 impression.
[Editor Rob: I bumped into another chef last month, nick nairn who actually looked in the 6ft 1-1.5 range.]
Twong said on 23/Jun/13
On the stadiometer on The F Word he was 186.5cm (can see the marks for cm; bold writing every 10cm with 8 regular marks inbetween). I located the mark for 180, then worked it out with a little bit of guesswork; based on the spacing of the other visible marks, I worked out the obscured bits.

186.5cm (6ft 1.43in) minus, say, 0.3-0.5in for typical footwear (it wasn't a serious measurement; they wouldn't have bothered removing their shoes) leaves him at 6ft 1in +/- 0.1in as an average, midday height.

Rob, the link you have at the top to Chef Ramsay's measuring does not work, at least not for me.
[Editor Rob: yeah, imageshack delete images after a while. I don't have the full size image but The smaller one...but it was a clear example of faking a height. Erin called out 6ft 2.5 but the reading really wasn't even 6ft 1.5 when I looked at it closely!]
legit177cm said on 7/Jun/13
I'm about 5'10. When i met him my eye was at top of his nose, so i dont know how tall he was but i guess he was 6'1 or fraction over but dont forget he had a good solid inch boot on and i was with 0.5 inch sneaker.

I saw Lenny Henry with Frank Bruno at a comic relief thing years ago, and Lenny was definitely taller or at least appeared to be, which is why I always thought Lenny was 6'4.

He looked about 6'0 standing next to comedian Al Murray who is apparently 6'3 which is also supposed to be the same height of Lenny Henry; when Lenny met Gordon he was approximately three inches taller(the videos are on YouTube).

Actually he seems to have on flattish fur boots in the lower pic which I doubt would give much more than an inch. But Rylan surely looks no less than 4 inches taller...
Arch Stanton said on 19/Jan/13
Don't forget though Trent that it's highly unlikely Rylan had on equal footwear with Gordon. He usually wears heeled shoes. He's near 6'6" in them I think.
Trent said on 3/Jan/13
Oh, and those pics with Rylan are very good. There is a bit of distortion, but no way is that a guy only 2.7 inches shorter than Rylan.
Trent said on 3/Jan/13
It seems unlikely she would have made him take his shoes off. It's not like he was being formally screened for the agency. It was just a gimmick thing for the show. So he measures 6'1 and 1/3, minus his shoes and the stadiometer 1/8" error he's 6' even. He claimed that himself at one point, and there is no way he would have downgraded himself, knowing how arrogant he is.

Seeing how Ramsay looked next to the genuine 6'4" guys on the Cook along and that he measured roughly 6'1.5 on the stadiometer, chances are he is actually 6'0.5 barefoot. But I've long said his height and build is very similar to my own, it's possible he is a bit shorter than I thought. Strange thing is he often looked near 6'2" and 187 next to those footballers.

O dear. Scroll down. See him next to Rylan Clark who claims 6'4". If anything Rylan edges out Hoff in comparison to how Hoff looked next to Ramsay last year. He makes Gordon look little more than 6'0 here.
freddie said on 26/Dec/12
Vika is right, although we cant prove he had shoes on I think he did I met in July this year and I am 6'0.5 barefoot 6'1.5 with shoes on and was eye to eye with him Gordon is 6,0.5
vika said on 23/Dec/12
Editor Rob If gordon was only 6'1.5 with shoes on then he can be no more than 6'0.5 barefoot, so why not downgrade him to 6'0.5 he looks that height not much taller than david beckham
[Editor Rob: he's not quite 6ft 1.5, whether he is in shoes or not or how thick they are we don't know.

If he wasn't then 184-5cm is probably barefoot height.]
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!]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/12
Gordon Ramsey 6ft1.5(187cm)
Marco Pierre White 6ft2.5(189cm)
James said on 20/Nov/12
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 forο»Ώ 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
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!
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.
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.
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'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 ;)

6ft no more, but not less
