Andrea said on 13/Sep/15
Yeah, Fallon seems much more honest than this guy, at least about height! He claims 6' and he actually can pull off the full 6' at times! This guy can really look 180 AT MOST and he claims to be 6'1!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Sep/15
At least Fallon is sort of honest about his height.
177-178 cm guy said on 9/Sep/15
He's 5'11". Him and Beckham look the same height.
Andrea said on 8/Sep/15
Lol, do you really think Jimmy genuinely believes to be 6'1, Rob?
That's a big joke! Look at him with 6'2.75 Chris Hemsworth: Click Here
Go to about 2.45 for example, when Chris stands tall he he has no less than 4 good inches on him, Jimmy can actually look a bit under his eyelevel in some parts of the clip! He's really 180 at best!
[Editor Rob: I think he knows he's not, but is following what many do, boosting their ego and the more he says 6ft 1 the more he will beleive it himself!

The G effect - keep saying you're 5ft 8 and you start to believe it.]
grizz said on 10/Aug/15
@Johnny, still smiling at that video. If he just claimed 6ft, nobody would think twice about his claim. But no-he had to add 2 inches.
james said on 8/Aug/15
Rob, i really think Jimmy kimmell has shown solid proof that he's 180cm, i think that's a better listing than 182cm.

Jimmy sticking with the 6-1 measuring against 6-7 Reggie Miller.

Ed. Rob? What do you make of that video?
[Editor Rob: to be fair, the angle did benefit Reggie, but I'm sure Jimmy still believes he is 6ft 1...maybe the person doing the measuring didn't tap the stadiometer bar down and left it sitting on his hair.]
Gil said on 19/May/15
Hey rob you have two listings for JIm. I think this is the old listing.
[Editor Rob: the first page had an extra letter but it never got deleted as I changed the spelling, I should delete the old page really, I forgot!]
WAF said on 4/May/15
@SportsHeight and Rob

I think Bill Simmons might be close to six feet tall, certainly not below 5'11".

Here he is with Jalen Rose, who, according to is 6'6".

Click Here

Here he is with Hulk Hogan, standing at roughly 6'3" at this point.

What do you think?
cole said on 1/May/15
@Dmeyer: Denzel must surely be sitting/leaning on the chair armrest or something like that in that shot. It doesn't make sense otherwise, as he consistantly looks near 6ft.
Hypado said on 29/Apr/15
Kimmel is more a 5ft 11.5in , not a 5ft 11.25
Dmeyer said on 26/Apr/15
Bang on 181 in all those thaugh denzel looks 179-80ish
Dmeyer said on 26/Apr/15
There are more and more 5'11.25/181 guys
Ally said on 23/Apr/15
Rob, don't you think he is just 180 cm? He looks it with Tyson and Pacquiao
[Editor Rob: I think 181 is ok just now, it is probably nearer the mark.]

Solid 5'11". Highly doubt he's under it.
Hypado said on 27/Mar/15
Jimmy Kimmel - 182,0 cm , 5ft 11.75in

Jimmy Fallon - 182,7 cm , 6ft 0in

Kimmel is a very weak 182 cm and fallon is almost 183 cm, a very weak 6ft guy.
SportsHeight said on 25/Mar/15
Rob, how tall would you say Kimmel's friend Bill Simmons is?

Here he is next to Kimmel:

[Editor Rob: maybe over 5ft 10 and close to 5ft 11]
Ally said on 21/Mar/15
He looks 2 cm taller than Mike Tyson, who is 178 cm
Hypado said on 19/Feb/15
In the show, he Jimmy Kimmel looks 181 cm - 182 cm / 5ft 11.25 - 5ft 11.5
THEguy said on 5/Feb/15
5'11.5 for Kimmel is a joke. You're being way too generous. he's 5'10, 5'10.5 at best.
MD said on 2/Feb/15

We really have to get this half-inch shaved off so we can get towards a more realistic listing. Here he is with 5'11" David Beckham.

Click Here

I think you need to go check some more pictures of him and figure out where this extra half-inch is coming from.
max said on 27/Jan/15
rob, did you see the oscar promo with him and neil patrick harris? NPH is at least 2 cm taller, this a downgrade that's long overdue, he's 180cm
MD said on 26/Jan/15

I'm having doubts about this listing, now. Here is Jimmy with a pretty confirmed 5'10" with Seth Macfarlane (to his immediate right):

Click Here

Click Here

I'm going to be very generous - particularly given that Jimmy even has a footwear advantage in these shots - and say that maybe 5'11" seems a more appropriate listing. Even if by some off chance we have Macfarlane off by a full inch, it'd be really hard to argue anything above 5'11" for Jimmy. Thoughts?
cole said on 14/Jan/15
Unless Jimmy's got a slouch he actually looked at least 0.5in shorter than NPH on that emmy stage. Fallon had tap shoes on, so that explains why he looked noticably taller than NPH.
marcus said on 28/Nov/14
Rob you literally need to downgrade him for the longest while, look at him next to 183cm chris pine
Click Here He's no taller than 180cm!
Arch Stanton said on 21/Oct/14
Well, if he's a strong 5 ft 11 Chris Hemsworth's an easy 6 ft 4.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 21/Oct/14
Strong 5 ft 11.

He loos like he lost 25 pounds from his 205 lbs peak. Looks 170 or so nowdays.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Oct/14
Similar to Fallon...
judd said on 30/Sep/14
Jimmy Kimmel is likely 5'11-5'11.5" while Fallon 5'11".
Lonestar said on 18/Sep/14
Jimmy kimmel is a big liar. Ryan gosling was 1/2inch neil by 6'0.5 bradley cooper and a solid 3cm top on Jimmy kimmel. Jim is 5'11 n nothing
Oanh said on 26/Aug/14
LOL @ his 6'1" claim. He looks a full 2" shorter than a solid 6'0 Drake. No more than 5'10.5" for Jimmy.
Joe said on 19/Jul/14
Drake: 182 cm
John Mayer: 190 cm
Jimmy Kimmel: 180 cm

Looks fair.
B-ran said on 6/Jul/14
This dude is like 5'10. He's about 2 inches shorter than gosling who is speculated between 5'11 1/2 to 6'0 1/2. No way is Kimmel even near 6'1...even in his dress shoes.
Marcus Hickman said on 12/Jun/14
6' 1"? yeah right and i'm 6' 0". That's not the case Kimmel! I don't even say i'm 5' 11" and I pass for it, i'm
5' 10 1/2" and 210 lbs. Jimmy is 5' 11 1/2" indeed I agree.
cole said on 27/Apr/14
180 cm range is more likely. He can look 1-1.5in shorter than Ryan Gosling: Click Here and doesn't seem taller than Adam Levine: Click Here He should be downgraded. How dare he claim 6'1?
chrisssss said on 14/Apr/14
Rob this listing is getting ridiculous bro -.- seth macfarlen was around his height last night and he's no taller than 178cm -.-
[Editor Rob: I can't see him below 5ft 11, 5ft 11 could be his mark and he claimed the 2-inch rule.]
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 12/Apr/14
I've though for a while Kimmel is under 11.5. I think he could be 11 flat

Here he is with Gosling:

I think Drake might be a strong 6'
chrisssss said on 12/Apr/14
And drake isn't like 6'4, cuz when he stood by shaka hislop he looked tiny, jimmy kimmel never looks 182cm
chrisssss said on 12/Apr/14
He was 4 inches shorter than drake....weak 5'11 for jimmy. Rob please downgrade 179-180cm for kimmel
jaj said on 12/Apr/14
He looks considerably shorter than 6' drake
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 11/Apr/14
close to 2" under Drake who's also billed 5'11.5
Click Here
[Editor Rob: I would say he looks an inch taller, he certainly makes drake look in 6ft range.

This is like the old video we discussed with Drake and Rio that case the angle is making it look like a strong 6ft 3 Rio can make Drake look barely 5ft 11.]
MD said on 11/Apr/14
He really does manage on his show to look very close to 6'0"

That said, while he may not wear lifts, I do think he probably wears an insole of some sort, or a higher heel than average.
Jesse Stone said on 9/Apr/14
1 inch shorter than 6'1 Costner
chrisssss said on 3/Apr/14
A veerrry weak 5'11, 180cm MAX for kimmel
Brad A. said on 27/Mar/14
There's a picture of him with John Mellencamp who's 5'7 or 5'8 and he only has about 2 inches on John, with similar shoes. I think jimmy is reasonably about 5'10.5 or 5'10.75, since he seems to be just shorter than 5'11 people like McConaughey, Adam Levine, and Seth Rogen.
lol@6'2 said on 21/Mar/14
I don't think he'd drop under 6' to be honest rob.
MD said on 13/Mar/14
Hey Rob,

Do you think you could go through some pics of this guy? It seems to a lot of us that he's a flat 5'11". I think if stood straight up against Jimmy Fallon, for instance, that he'd come out slightly shorter. He really just looks 5'11" most of the time.
chrisssss said on 11/Mar/14
5'11, seth rogan was the exact same height as him or slightly taller on last night's show
5'11" barefoot said on 8/Mar/14
Jimmy kimmel can be 8 feet for that matter...he's still weak with paper hands and a girl body. Vin Diesel is an idiot also wearing platform shoes evrywhere he goes with lifts in them so he can claim is 6 foot height how sad. Look how short vin diesels arms are. He's a joke just like kimmel.
MD said on 27/Feb/14

I don't believe he's shorter than this, but he's the half-inch probably has to go, now. Here he is with Matthew McConaughey:

Click Here

And, Matt's wearing some pretty regular-to-flat dress shoes, too:

Click Here

Also, Matt is losing a tiny bit more height in this photo than Jimmy. I think Jimmmy is a solid 5'11", but not more than that.
KT said on 27/Feb/14
I just watch Himmy Kimmel show and guest (6'4") Liam Neeson had some funny things to say about Jimmy... along the lines of, "you're just a little guy... but your chair is higher - you're cheating".. quite funny! sure one can find video online for exact comments.

Glad everyone is confirming that JImmy is about 5'10".. that's always been my guess when I've seen him live at Mega-parties he has hosted or M.C.ed -- 5'10" with very generous fancy dress shoes!
chrissss said on 20/Feb/14
shorter than matthew Mcconaughey who is 5'11, jimmy is not above 6ft, he 5'11
JB said on 16/Dec/13
It's funny I always thought he was a 5'10" kind of guy. Then I saw him listed as 6'1" somewhere and couldn't believe it. Then I come here and it looks like everyone else thinks he's 5'10", looks like I'm not the only one.
cole said on 14/Dec/13
5'11.25 at best barefoot, likely under.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Dec/13
LOL if he's 6'1" Chris Hemsworth is 6'5!! 5'11.25 (181 cm) I think would be a good shout but 182 is at least more likely than 6' or 6'1!. Hemsworth looked a comfortable 4 inches taller to me.
MD said on 27/Nov/13

Again, Jimmy Kimmell is not a thing over 5'11".
Heightgirl said on 4/Sep/13
5f11.75 - 6f1 Vin Diesel was on Jimmy's show last night and was taller than him by about an inch. Vin posted a pic of them on his FaceBook group standing beside each other but you can not see their footwear.
bodwaya said on 19/Jun/13
rob here a link were dean cain is on jimmy kimmel and dean cain who u claim is same height as kimmel is actually taller then kimmel in this video is it possible kimmel needs a down grade or cain is actually 6 foot Click Here
[Editor Rob: they look very similar height to me]
Ben said on 13/May/13
@Jesse You're absolutely right about Matt Fox, Kimmel and Fallon. Fallon is caught all the time wearing 2-2.5 inch lifts. But I absolutely promise you Gosling is a solid 6'1 and Timberlake 6.05 - 6'1. I've met BOTH guys while wearing my flip flops and I am exactly 188cm barefoot.
johnny said on 6/Apr/13
seeing him claim 6'1'' is funny. he's 5'11'' on a good day.
Tempest said on 8/Feb/13
Yeah, he looks 5'10"-5'10.5".
Hew said on 11/Jan/13
You gyus are letting the obvious liftwearing fool you. He was a good 10 cm shorter than Matthew Fox barefoot. Last time I checked Matthew was 6'2 not 6'4. Rob how can you know so much about lifts and yet not see the obvious?

Also he doesn't seem 17 cm taller than Regis Philbin...

Hmmmm if kimmels not wearing lifts when he greets cat heely than he can be 183-185 range

He's 6 feet even, I think, maybe a bit more, but not quite 6'1.

At 0:12 - 0:25 Cat Deeley she is next to Jimmy Kimmle and CLEARLY shorter than him in her 4 inch heels.

Can't find the Clip but Cat Deeley CLEARLY is TALLER than Jimmy Fallon when on 6/7/2012. Her and BOTH Jimmy Fallon and Jimmie Kimmle are tough. I'd say a clean 5'11 for Kimelle, Fallon slightly under, and her 5'8
Tim said on 18/Aug/12
standing next to rick springfield--they looked the same height. And rick ain't short!Probably over 6 feet one!!!

Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m said on 14/Jun/12
Kimmel is as listed or maybe a cm less; Jude Law's 5ft 10.5in (1.79 m), Gosling's 6ft 0.5in (1.84 m).
Chameleon said on 14/Jun/12
Right, except Jude Law is 5'9 and Ryan Gosling 5'11 max.
Jesse said on 13/Jun/12
In that shower scene with 6'2" barefoot Matty Fox, the top of Kimmel's head is at his eyelevel, so 5'10" is right for Kimmell. That also puts Fallon at 5'10", Timberlake at 5'10.5", Jude Law at 5'10", and Ryan Gosling at 5'11" - 5'11.25".

Robert said on 25/Nov/11
I am really tired of these "short" men (not kimmel) stating 6´1" or more, like for example Vin Diesel, Justin Timberlake and Bradley Cooper, all claiming 6´1", none of them are even close. Kimmel is probably 5´10", and like Lopez he´s rocking some gigantic heels.
shorty said on 15/Nov/11
Don't be silly JR ur suggesting kimmel wears 6 inches of footwear that would look incredibly stupid am sorry but I don't believe it can be done.anyone have any suggestions on wat the max lifts someone could get away with? Johnny depp uses 3 inch lifts and looks highly suspicuous all the time so imagine 6 inch lifts
JR said on 2/Nov/11
okay. when Jimmy was the sidekick on When Ben Stein's money, I was an extra on several of the shows filmed at U.C.L.A. I am 6 feet tall, and he was definitely shorter than me at around 5'10, when we stood next to me. Now, I saw him at the El Capitan a few days ago, again he stood next to me. This time he towered over me at about 6'3 or 6'4. He was wearing boots with a big heel and the way his pant leg hung, he definitely looked like he was wearing lifts too!!!!
Carol said on 29/Sep/11
He looks about 5'10''-5'11'' max.
Jones said on 29/Sep/11
He looked the same height as Sylvester Stallone, he really can't be 6'1
jake said on 25/Jul/11
No way 6ft. He is cleary shorter then 6ft0 Hayden Christensen.
Truthman said on 3/Jul/11
Look at the end of the video i posted before, Hoff have good 5-6 inches on Jimmy standing side by side.
Chameleon said on 3/Jul/11
No way near 6 barefoot, seriously.
5'8.18758596 said on 2/Jul/11
I think he's a solid 6' guy, I've been checking all the pics you posted, and he doesn't get creamed by the Hoff, who only has 4" on him. He is definitely not 6'1, but he isn't under 6' either.

Mike Tyson tiptoes right at the moment he hugs Kimmel in his program, it's not too hard to spot if you watch the youtube link. That's why they both look the same height in that photo.

Stana Katic is 5'9 and with 3" heels she looks the size of Kimmel, same thing with 5'7.5 Jennifer Lawrence who, wearing 3" heels, looks an inch and a half shorter than Kimmel.

Kimmel looks his 6' next to 6'2 Adam Carolla in that drunk party pic. He also looked of similar height next to 6'1/4" Duchovny.

I think it is a stretch to say he's 5'10, he must be 5'11.5 at least, I'd definitely buy a full 6'. He definitely is lying about both his height and weight, he's not 6'1 and he must be at least 220 pounds.
Legend said on 24/Jun/11
He's 5'11 or under
Chameleon said on 23/Jun/11
He might be a lift wearer, in that other pic u can see their feet and he's towerd. Also Hasselhoff destroyd him.
Voiceless dental fricative said on 22/Jun/11
The Carolla picture is weird. There are some other pictures of them together on google and he looks significantly taller in them
Click Here

I wonder if Jimmy is a lift wearer.
Chameleon said on 21/Jun/11
1cm downgrade?? needs more otherwise he wouldnt look so tiny next to adam carolla!
Voiceless dental fricative said on 21/Jun/11
Nice to see a downgrade for Kimmel. I would still liken 5'11.0 to being closer to the truth. He looked the same height as Peter Facinelli!

(to be fair Facinelli had footwear advantage)
Ka said on 21/Jun/11
With 5'9 Stana Katic in heels giving 4 in, Kimmel does look close to 6, maybe exactly 5'11.5

Click Here

And she looks really tall next to confirm 6'1.5 Nathan Fillion, in big heels of course

Click Here

I think this guy is one of those who walks like 2 in shorter than when they stand tall. Though I do agree that he's not a full 6 ft, 5'11-5'11.5 seems probable
jake said on 20/Jun/11
This guy was shorten than Hayden Christensen last year! He was shorter by around and inch for sure. Either Christensen is 6' 1" or Kimmell is 5' 11" flat no more.
[Editor Rob: there has been a lot of people over the last few months seeing him 5ft 11 range rather than 6 foot, so under 6ft might be getting close to the truth.]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 20/Jun/11

If he was 5'11, how in the name of all that is sacred can he claim to be 6'1? Doesn't he comprehend that no one will believe him? Oh well, I've seen a guy claim to be 189 cm tall and he was like 180-182... Lol.
voiceless dental fricative said on 3/Jun/11
Yeah, 6' is nuts.

So why is he still listed 6'0 after those pics and vids, clearly Adam Carolla towerd him.

I truly deeply have difficulty believing this guy is 6-foot.
Click Here
Up next to 5'6.5" Sarah Silverman and 5'3" Jerry Stiller... He looks short. Unless he's on his knees, he is short. The weight thing I'm still confused about, because you wouldn't normally lie about being 205. 205 is pretty big, and... he just doesn't look very big.
Rogerio said on 1/Apr/11
Just saw him shake hands when David Beckham came out and he was noticeably taller than Beckham (who gets listed at 5'11"). I would say at least an inch taller than Beckham but probably two inches or more.
bill k. said on 24/Mar/11
Matthew McConaughey was on his show recently and stood next to him, shook his hand for a couple of seconds and Matthew seemed clearly to be a bit taller than him (maybe half an inch), I understand that Matthew is about 5"10 (178 cm) maybe a smidge taller than that, so Jimmie is around 5"10, i am sure you'll can find the vid online and check it.

i watch his show from time to time and i watched him stand next to plenty of show biz folks and it is obvious that he is not more then 5"10, if he is claiming to be more than it's one of the two.. 1) he should learn to measure himself correctly 2) he is lying!
James said on 24/Feb/11
he looks closer to 182cm to me
Rob said on 25/Jan/11
If he says he's 205 lbs he's either lying about his weight or his height...I'm 6'0 195 lbs & I'm pretty skinny, Jimmy Kimmell has a descent size belly on him. So I'm saying if he's my height there's no way he's only 10 pounds heavier than me, more like 30 lbs, he'd have to be at most 5'10 with that body to be 205lbs!

Out of $100 I'd put $75 on 5'11". $24.96 on 5'10". 4 pennies and the last half of my pocket packs on 6'.
Phil said on 13/Mar/09
Absolutely no way he's 6'...David Hasselhoff was just on his show and they were standing side by side looking at the camera and Kimmel was at David's nose level. Hasselhoff is a true 6'4" (I met him in 1986 at a Toys R Us opening. Kimmel can't be more than 5'10" max.

I ran into him last night and he is not taller than 5'10,I'm 6'3 and my GF 5'9 and he was only an inch taller than her.

Hmm, I really figured that Jimmy was closer 5' 10, but look can be deceiving.
Hugh said on 13/Dec/08
A legit 6ft guy. No less. Infact I'd say 184-185cm in the morning.

Glenn saw this kimmell fellow at 6ft 1 regularly...

here he is with 6ft 2 and 7/8th's Terrell Owens

Jimmy looks 5
Alex said on 1/Oct/08
The 5'11-6'1 range can be tough to tell from on TV but I'd say Kimmel is 6'0 give or take 1/2 inch.

There is a video on Youtube where Trey Parker and Matt Stone are guests on his show. If you watch carefully, 6 foot Trey is noticeably taller when they shake hands at the beginning. Trey probably has him by at least half an inch. I would give Kimmel 182cm, but no more imo.

He looks short tbh. I wouldn't even give him 6 feet.

Jay Leno is more 5'10''. Didn't have 3 inches on Bill Maher last night.
John said on 1/Aug/08
I just saw kimmel tonight I'd say 5-11 to 6ft, with shoes 6 to 6-1 for sure. I was two feet from him, and I'm 6 when I wear my boots anywhere from 6'1 to 6'1.5
Lift Expert said on 30/Jul/08
Been to his show and stood next to him a few times, Hes definitely 6'0 but I dunno if he wears lifts or not, but his foot wear doesn't seem like he does.
Jay said on 27/Jul/08
He looks Jay Leno's height. 5'11
Hani said on 5/Jul/08

Kimmel looked very equal in height to Paul Walker the last time Walker was on his show.

Jimmy also looks dead on with Reggie Bush (5' 11"?)
glenn said on 2/Jun/08
rob-how do have this so low? i see this guy weekly.he is 6-1.

[Editor Rob: well give him 6 just now and do you think you'd ever get a photo with him?]
WantingToBe6FT said on 1/Jun/08
Yeah, he looks like a solid 6 footer to me, maybe lift-wearer but doubt it
Duhon said on 3/May/08
Paul was measured 5'11.75".
Anonymous said on 1/May/08
He looked dead on with 6'0" Chris Paul (from the New Orleans Hornets) when he interviewed Paul. I doubt Chris Paul is too much under 6'0" if at all.
Phil said on 29/Apr/08
He is about 2.5" inches taller than 5'9" Sanjaya Malakar.
ed said on 25/Mar/08
Heidi Klum is on tonight in 3 inch heels and Kimmel is still taller than her
Jasno said on 25/Feb/08
He claims 6'1"....I just saw the halarious Ben Affleck video. And he said:" Im fairly tall but I had to stand on my tippy toes to be even with you(Ben)" But After seeing the Eminem basketball video I suspect he's around 5'11".
Im 5'11" and can pass for 6'1" too so I can't see why he could'nt.
Albi said on 17/Feb/08
He was taller than Tank Abbott. Thats all I have to say.
Alex said on 28/Oct/07
He looks anywhere from 5'11-6'0 to me.
5'10'' said on 24/Sep/07
There was an episode of The Man Show where Kimmell's driver's license read 5'10''.
J From Sac said on 11/Sep/07
I don't even think he's 5'11 and is more then likely a lift wearer.

Jeff Ross is like 5'10 1/2
Akirum byn Anaq said on 28/Jul/07
Kimmel's a six-footer. Don't get around it.
hakiem said on 28/Jul/07
what? no way he cant be close to 6'0. At the espy awards he look a whole foot shorter than lebron whoes close to 6'8. In my oponion hes like 5'9.

On The Man Show, Kimmel looked more like 5'10" next to his 6'2" co-host Adam Carolla.
Viper652 said on 15/Sep/06
The guy looks 5-11 Max next to Terrell Owens. Maybe more 5-10. 6-0 could be out of the question for him.
Marc said on 14/Sep/06
Heidi Klum (assuming she's 6'0" in heels) looks about an inch shorter than him in this clip. Click Here He lookas about 6'1", but I'd say he's 6'0" without shoes.
J. said on 9/Sep/06
He claims 6'1" but he simply never looks it. Posture?

[Editor Rob: doubtful, although with some guys calling height in shoes, he could be doing that]
Anonymous said on 9/Sep/06
Lol i was watchin the show and he looks like 5'8-5'10 max.
Editor Rob said on 8/Sep/06
He does try to claim 6ft 1:
"But nothing has made me angrier than when a guy decided how tall I was. He didn't even interview me; he reviewed 'Win Ben Stein's Money.' I am 6-foot-1 (not 5-foot-7)."

i work at an int'l airport as a customs officer. i meet a lot of celebrities when they come to town and had the chance to meet Jimmy Kimmel about 2 years ago at the airport - it was very quick but i was standing eye to eye with him for a couple of minutes...really nice guy, we spoke for a couple of minutes, shook hands and he was on his way...i can assure you, he is not/not 6'0'" tall. I am 5'10 (with shoes), he was wearing sneakers and he was about the same height as me. At best, 5'10 and a half but no way he's more than that.

I question 6' when I saw 6'2" sharapova in heels she was about 5 inches taller and look at this picture with him next to the undertaker

even though jimmy is not standing up straight he is still about a foot shorter, and undertaker is only 6'7.5" (according to this site)

"If Jimmy is infact 6'1" or 6', than how come alot of actors who stands anywhere from 5'9 to 5'11 seems to be the same height as him?"

Its called almost all celebrities under 6' wear them on those shows. for instance on leno stallone will be about the same height as Jay and tom Cruise will not be that much shorter. However Tall girls like Marcia cross wears heels and is shorter then Jay, and Kidman is barely taller in heels. 6'3" tito ortiz was on jimmy kimmell, and since he is a real man he does not wear lifts in his shoes and he was only a few inches taller then jimmy.

"He IS between 6'0" and 6'1". I am his sister."

Jimmy Kimmel is a strange one. I remembered seeing his Christmas special, and he did stood taller than athletes like Mike Tyson and Serena Williams. Before that I always pictured him around a 5'9 - 10" range. He seems to shrink to that height when standing next to an actor. There was one show where he had on Natasha Henstridge who says she's around 5'10". Anyways her shoes broke so she had to walk on stage barefoot, and she still looked a bit taller than Jimmy.

If he's truly 6'1" than I'm the President of the United States and richer than Bill Gates.
