Height has been very, very central to the development of my personality. I think when you’re a tall girl, you feel a little bit like an outcast. You have to go to the back of the photo. You’re taller than all the boys. I know I felt more like an outsider. And then as I got older I just got used to it. I got like: I don’t date under 6 feet. That’s my policy.

Her barefoot is 180cm but her hair is 6'4. LOL

I don't really get it.

Women who reject and refuse to date short men yet themselves whine about being too tall, are pretty obnoxious. That's like a fat woman who only wants to date ripped bodybuilders. I get that people have different dating preferences, but it's a bit hypocritical.

I dont think she's 183cm as she claims to be. She looks like she could be 179-180cm.

You date a PERSON, not a height! 😕
Redwing said on 7/Feb/19
Doesn’t date under 6 feet lol, uh your 5’11? 🤣🤣

I'd like to see a picture of Jessica without her hair piled up on her head.
Until then, I will settle for 5ft10.5.
Nik said on 15/Aug/17
She looks to be more 5'10" than 5'11" to me!
Junior said on 13/Aug/17
I thought shes came close at 6'0 at a first few look. More i look at her she look 5'10.5" maybe pushing 5'11 .
Nik said on 13/Aug/17
She doesn't look 6 ft!
Sam said on 11/Aug/17
Agreed on her beauty but yeah 5'10.5"-5'11" might be fairer. Ready for a downgrade, Rob?

Rob, if you feel she's not 6'0", then why aren't you downgrading her?
Editor Rob
when I can find some time to look at her.

Even in heels I haven't seen her stand over John Oliver too much. At most an inch and John is a weak 6 footer himself. 5'10.5-5'11 seems about right for her. That'd make Hasan, John, Jessica, and Trevor within an inch and a half of each other and that's usually how they all look.

But man is this woman beautiful.

She wouldn't be 6'3" or 6'4" in those heels. Thats very tall and she just doesn't look it. I doubt id only come up to her chin if i stood next to her im guessing a few inches higher than her chin
MD said on 10/Aug/17
Rob, what I meant is that legit six-foot-and-up women are usually honest about their height or even downgrade. But what I've found is "just tall" women (5'10"ish) always seem to claim six-foot in my personal experience, and more than 5'10" men do. I don't know what it is about 5'10" specifically - maybe because many of them see it as the average male height - but I've found this is the height women will upgrade on themselves the most.
Editor Rob
I'm not sure she looks only 5ft 10, but I can see how 6ft barefoot can seem a bit inflated.
Lee168cm said on 10/Aug/17
Looks 6' in heels probably 5'9 without
Bard said on 9/Aug/17
Maybe with the hair...
Jamie said on 9/Aug/17
Definitely doesn't look like a six footer.
Sam said on 9/Aug/17
Yeah, could be that her claim is in big shoes or heels, maybe could pass in the strong 5'10" range. I'd be shocked if she was six feet with this lineup.

Tall women often lie about their height too not just men. Jessica could be about 5'10"
MD said on 9/Aug/17

Yeah, I was thinking more around 5'10". I've found in my personal experience that 5'10" is one of the only heights where girls and women exaggerate their height more than men.
Editor Rob
it's more rare for a taller women to inflate than a man, but Jessica may well be calling a big shoe height.
MD said on 8/Aug/17
She always speaks of herself as 6'0", but doesn't seem to look it to me in flats.
Triplescrew said on 8/Aug/17
Calling BS on her claim. Trevor Noah, who's 5'11" range edges her out when she's in heels. Hasan Minhaj, apparently 6 feet (though maybe less) looks clearly taller than her in some photos.

Maybe 5'10" flat for her and 6'0" in shoes with 2 inch heels.
Doom said on 7/Aug/17
Looks 5'8 in the photo
Paul said on 7/Aug/17

Never seen that before.
zak said on 7/Aug/17
Wait, what? I've always imagined her in the 5'4-5'6 range. She's not typically broad shouldered like a lot of taller women. On TV she just doesn't seem that tall, yet she's a giant of a woman apparently.
