I'm surprised she didn't make it to 162 cm, I thought she would, and took a punt on the .05 to try and get first place. How wrong I was. 5th again. :-(

Hey Rob did you count my guess when my name was simply 'jake' for Challenge 1 and when I came 5th?
[Editor Rob: ah, I forgot you added 182, so I will add the extra point which moves you up the leaderboard by 1 position ;)]

Rob, she looked about dead on the middle of your eye level which was why I put down 5'3.75. 4.5 inch eye level but she was probably at your lower eye making up about 1/8 inch lower
[Editor Rob: normally eyelevel is around 4.5ish, but a slight tilt up/down can add 1/8th, or the camera can add/take away height.

I think the portrait (vertical) shot added a few mm to the girl's height.]

Legend, you would have been in the top 5 if you put your 2nd guess first! Rob only takes the first guess which was 161cm in your case
Physics Enemy said on 21/Oct/11
Ohhh I get it Rob, Legend's first guess was 161 cm. Fair enough.
Physics Enemy said on 21/Oct/11
To be precise Rob she's a quarter mm over 161.7, but fair enough. More importantly, why isn't Legend on the leaderboard? He guessed better than me.
[Editor Rob: He guessed 161cm first.]

i knew the challenger would turn out shorter.. lol.. donnoe why i still submit over 162cm. rob always put a tricky volunteer here..
ANDREA[ITA] said on 21/Oct/11
i did the same mistake with the old one! i thought she was shorter than my guess but i upgraded it because on this site you have a lot of women that look that difference and that you put at 5'4! that should clear your ideas about it! you have a lot of women that look max 160 and you list 5'4, with no reason!

I was way off LOL .
Shaun said on 21/Oct/11
Nooo a millimetre out!! I was way out LOL!
Editor Rob said on 21/Oct/11
This was a close challenge, she was a good 161.7cm, you had to be within 4mm to get into that top 5. I put Reality/Sarrazin plus zaq as 1st.
Shaun said on 20/Oct/11
She does look a flat 5'4" in the right photo, true. I think she's got to be somewhere around 162cm. But she's more likely to be 162. something than below my estimate of 161.8 cm I think. She's close to 5'4" likely the lower side of it, if she is above a flat 5'4" I would be very surprised. If I got the hair vs head line wrong though she's definitely on the higher side of the 162cm!! I think some of us are going to be very close on this one though.
Physics Enemy said on 20/Oct/11
161.84 is perhaps possible Legend, 161.85 moreso. 161.83 is miles off.
Shaun said on 20/Oct/11
Rob out of curiosity how much do you measure on tip toes? Would be interesting to see how much height difference between flat feet and max tip toe. Or go on tip toes in your Don's and see how tall you could reach!
[Editor Rob: you can get near 3 inches on big tip toes]
Mathew said on 20/Oct/11
162.4 cm
Gaga-183.2cm-185.1cm said on 20/Oct/11
Another quick guess.....
161cm, i might be quite off, she is tilting her head up and makes it more unaccurate, and i think i am the only one here who guessed her that low.
Legend said on 20/Oct/11
She's 161.83cm
Tman said on 20/Oct/11
1,626m First place no doubt ;)
miko said on 20/Oct/11
Rob, are you trying to tell us that G tried to sneak a tiptoe when measured? Haha ;)
[Editor Rob: I said to the 3 year old 'you pulling a G', she just nodded 'yeah'.

but then I asked her if she won the lottery and she said yeah aswell.]
Rav 5ft 9 said on 20/Oct/11
161.5 cm
Vegas said on 20/Oct/11
she looks to be about a cm taller in the righthand photo

will go with 162.35cm based on that shot seeing as its full length
Physics Enemy said on 20/Oct/11
Glenn is 5' 9" barefoot at night with casual posture. He dosn't tiptoe.
Shaun said on 20/Oct/11
[Editor Rob: actually I said 4 but realised she was 3...when the stadiometer comes out she's the one who wants to get measured more than the adults around! ]

Perhaps she has a future on here!
Tim said on 20/Oct/11
#6: 161.5 cm
B said on 19/Oct/11
162.5 cm is my guess..
Kristen said on 19/Oct/11
163.25 cm
A said on 19/Oct/11
ROB! my guess for challenge #6 is 162.5 cm
Shaun said on 19/Oct/11
A G manoevre LOL. Now lots of us here are good at estimating normal range folks between 5' and 6'4" below 5' or even 4' would be extremely challenging. Deducing anything over 12 inches is very hard. If you can get photographs with the 4 year old and stop her from tio toeing that would be a hard challenge. I guess we could use it to gauge Verne Troyer's height should you meet him, although she was probably taller than Verne...

160.75cm / 5'3.3''
LAN Jiao said on 19/Oct/11
Tip of her head cover rob eye level made her 11.2-11.4cm lower rob height Rob 173.3cm , she gota be 161.9-162.1cm
Physics Enemy said on 19/Oct/11
You're going to have to be very precise with this one Rob, lots of very similar guesses. Even the tiniest rounding will throw off the results massively.
Physics Enemy said on 19/Oct/11
162.05 cm
Zox said on 19/Oct/11
161,3 cm
Shaun said on 19/Oct/11
Rob you ought to also try to get some kids to do this as a larger height deficit will really be tough. Get an 8 year old cousin on here or something!
[Editor Rob: true story...was measuring a 4 year old, I told her 'stand tall'.

She pulled a G maneouver and went on her tip toes, pushed the bar up another inch!]
ArmyyDogg said on 18/May/08
Thought he looked a little taller in MK Conquest.
Paolo Montalban is 6'2 and he looks a good inch or two taller.
