How tall is Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel's Height

5ft 11 ¼ (181 cm)

American Chat Show Presenter. In TVGuide 2006 he claimed his height and weight: "I weigh 205 pounds, give or take an ounce. [And I'm] 6-foot-1.", and also in 2003 said "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)." In 2020 a Health Practitioner measured him with a cardboard box and said 5ft 11.75.

How tall is Jimmy Kimmell

I grew up skinny — my first driver's license had me listed at 6-foot-1 and 136 pounds — so for a long time I had it in my head that I was skinny.

Just a solid 5'11 guy. His height claim is silly.

Good presenter, Just a hair less than myself.

Rob, I'm just confused or Jimmy is about 5'11" flat because this kinda like weak 3inches or 7 cms...

Is it legit 7cms difference ?

@Johno agreed, although the nurse doesn't cheat when measured jimmy as hard as she did kevin, cheating is still cheating

Chris Pine is the most honest 6'0 in Hollywood (lol), and he always beats out Jimmy in photos by a solid-ish inch. I wouldn't say anything over 2.5 cm difference though.

Unlike other people on this site, I think Pine falls slightly below 184 nearer nighttime, but if we assume he holds it during the afternoon (for example when he goes on Kimmel), then I think it is safe to assume Jimmy's in the 181 range for sure.

I honestly think in that video where Jimmy got measured, the lady was just being nice by giving him the 5'11 3/4 lol. From my personal experience, and going by Jimmy's aggression over his height listing in the past, 5'11 guys who claim 6ft don't like being told they aren't 6ft.

Yeah, some people even have Pine at almost 6'1 lol, seriously, he's a super strong 6'0, with Kimmel, if we assume Pine is 6'0,5 , Kimmel can look 5'11,5. There's about 1 inch between them
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 31/Dec/21
@recapa i would agree with you for current height, tho for peak i would think he's around 181-181,5 range, maybe not quite 5'11.5 or 182 like Fallon or Timberlake, but he definitely had the 'more than 5'11' impression in him
recapa said on 10/Oct/21
i think that average guess have him good .he was somewhere around 180-180.5 around his peak and 179.5-180 nowdays since i believe that he shrunk as he is 53 years old. check him out with 179.5-180 beckham here Click Here and here Click Here he looks younger in these pics and if you see the top of their heads it seems like jimmy is taller by a cm or so.179.5-180 before bed and 181.5-182 out of bed.
James 6'0" flat said on 10/Sep/21
How did he get measured at 5'11.75". And Kevin at 5'4.25"? What!?🤷‍♀️. I reckon Jimmy is 5'11" flat.
recapa said on 31/Aug/21
180-181 peak and 179-180 today.
Jawilder said on 31/Aug/21
I’ll say 5’11. He wears a bit of a heel, so he’s usually got an advantage with the celebrities he is taking photos with.
Stinky 186 cm said on 29/Aug/21
Solid 5’ 11”
Johno said on 17/Aug/21
That physician who measured Kimmel at 5'11.75 also measured Kevin hart at 5'4+ and granted she did not strictly press the box on his head, she would still be hard pressed to find the extra 2-inches over the general consensus of Hart'w height so basically her setup was highly inaccurate.

Kimmel is a man I feel has the edge on the likes of Pitt and Dicaprio but I would not put him over 5'11.

Editor Rob
As soon as I saw her using a postal box and a tape measure that was cut up and stuck to the wall above the aircon unit along the floor...I thought...this will be good.

No way in Hell this guy is 6’ 1”.
Danny batba said on 28/Apr/21
Hey Rob do you think Kimmel is 6ft out of bed if he stood tall? Thanks for your answer!
Editor Rob
I think he manages 6ft range out of bed
Canson said on 26/Apr/21
@Junior: I think 6’4.75 for rivers and 5’11 for Kimmel fit
miko said on 14/Apr/21
Kimmel in normal footwear will obviously clear 6'0 with ease, so an earlier in the day measurement in footwear would be around 6'1.
Visitor said on 11/Apr/21
"regular dress shoes" add much more than just one exact inch, in total. The outer heel that you can actually see is not all, obviously there's the rest of the shoe plus insole. It's more like 3.5+ cm for just standard dress shoes with no lifts.

I think Kimmel's own "6ft1" claim comes very straightforward from being measured in shoes. Possibly rounded up, but I can't possibly imagine him being any substantial amount below 180 cm.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Feb/21
@Chris H

Kimmel didn't look below 180cm barefoot if both Philip Rivers and Joey Bosa were 6'5 usually it's a morning or pushing afternoon measurement, i did say they're both 6'4.75".
Chris H said on 20/Jan/21
Looked a whole head shorter than 6'5" Philip Rivers and Joey Bosa. Jimmy even commented they made him feel like an eleven year old :o) Click Here No way he is taller than 5'11" in shoes. Funny guy though!

He could clear 181-182 first thing straight out of bed
Canson said on 2/Jan/21
@Junior: but seeing what I said where I mentioned that he measured Davis on his show, you see that he didn’t bat an eye when he measured him in shoes. He just said “You are 6’11”. He didn’t think twice about it. That says a lot and speaks volumes toward his tendencies
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Dec/20

We all know Kimmel is only 5'11 but claiming 6'1 and yes Kobe maybe got that tiny bit cam advantage over Kimmel but the legend isn't below 195cm as we know at least the highest he claim was 6'6 was a height with sneaks on not like how Kimmel would be confidently measure 6'1 without a hair but the truth is he was not even 6'0 1/2 with a regular 1-1.1" dress shoes on. Kimmel was a typical hollywood-style height fraud.
Canson said on 19/Dec/20
He claimed 6’1” for all of that time and finally got outed. Funny that he measured Anthony Davis in shoes at 6’11 and I called 6’9.75 even before he was measured this year. That 6’9.75 is just 1” taller than he was when drafted (6’9.25 morning height) and (6’8.75 afternoon)
Soumia Boumazoued said on 18/Dec/20
But 159 cm is too low for kevin he clearly look 5'3 or 161cm in the video
Soumia Boumazoued said on 17/Dec/20
Rob do you think kevin Hart is really 5ft 4 and a quarter as she said in the video with kimmel because he listed here at 158cm ???
Editor Rob
definitely a generous measurement for him...
Canson said on 7/Dec/20
@Junior: it’s inconclusive. Kobe does have camera advantage with Kimmel
Canson said on 7/Dec/20
@Recapa: the one variable is we don’t know what time that video with Hart took place. It looks like it’s in the morning judging by time of day. My guess is he should get a 5’11” listing (flat) until further evidence. He doesn’t look over 5’11 with Metta World Peace or Kobe but at times I can see the full 5’11” as opposed to under
recapa said on 25/Oct/20
needs a half inch downgrade maybe 5f11 flat at low or to be precise 5ft10 7/8 thats 180cm
Vsquad said on 17/Oct/20
Honest 6'0 John Cena with Kimmel -

No way Kimmel is 182 cm. Like I said, I think the lady was either being generous when she measured or he still had his flats on.

FriedChicken said on 6/Oct/20
Benedict isn't a legit 6 footer but i see your point.
Peter Sun said on 2/Oct/20
He has to be 5'11 1/2. I don't find him to be that short(though in some pics yes he does). He appears to be only 1 cm shorter than most legit 6 ft guys like Chris Evan, Benedict Cumberbatch, etc.
WaterLoo said on 10/Sep/20
The more I think about it the more I’m convinced the 5’11.75” measurement must have been in shoes. I think he’s about 5’10.75”, kind of an underrated crazy height claim.
cmillz said on 31/Jul/20
Really thought he looked under 5’11 next to Tom Brady.
Canson said on 19/Jul/20
5ft 11.25 is a fit for Jimmy in many situations, a lot more than 5ft 11.75 or 6ft, let alone his crazy 6ft 1 claim. I believe in the future he'll go with 6ft as a claim.

@Editor Rob: agree he would measure it at some point during the day but not so sure it’s an afternoon height for him
Kebapsever said on 14/Jul/20
182cm what I would give him.
Ian555 said on 28/Jun/20
Rob I don’t really understand how Kimmel could have measured 5’ 11 3/4”. He just doesn’t look it when compared to near 6 foot or actual legit 6 foot guys, such as Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Evans Click Here, Click Here. With former President Obama, who is a legit 6’ 1”, Kimmel looks like he’s MAYBE 5’ 11 1/2” at the most Click Here.
Editor Rob
I think it is a rough measurement. I personally would never measure any actor with an old cardboard box!
viper said on 25/Jun/20
Arnold's 6-1.5 measurement is more legit than this.

Most he looks like he could measure is 5-11
Canson said on 24/Jun/20
@MD and Junior: the problem is we don’t know if the 5’11,75 he got in his flats was in the morning, in addition to whether or not it is even accurate. That could make him as low as 5’10.75 perhaps even before we address accuracy. But since Rob believes Fallon Is taller than him and he doesn’t believe Fallon is really 6’0 maybe Kimmel should just be listed at 5’11”. It’s impossible to see 1/4” difference that easily. I used to believe he could be as low as 178-179 (5’10.5)
Canson said on 24/Jun/20
Agree with Andrea. He almost seemed more like he was embarrassed that it came to light on Tv that he’s not 6’1”
Realist said on 21/May/20
He is 5'11 lol my dad is almost 5'11 and claims 5'10 on his license.I am about 5'10 and over 5'10 in shoes and claim 5'10 on my license in Filas I am 5'11 out of bed should I claim 5'10 or 11 because if I claimed 5'11 people would say my shoes are big as I don't have a long appearance.
Andrea said on 15/May/20
Once again, another inconclusive measurement... The fact that he doesn't bat an eyelid at the 5'11.75 says a lot about his 6'1 claim though, yeah!
184guy2 said on 12/May/20
Well 5'11.75 is a lot better than the 6'1 claim
MD said on 27/Apr/20
With 5'10.5" Himesh Patel:

Click Here

With 5'8.25" Kumail Nanjiani:

He compares quite well to Patel, but that makes me think Patel is overlisted. Next to Nanjiani, he does not look even 5'11". I really don't think he's quite 5'11".
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Apr/20
Kobe is def not under 15cm over Jim. Kimmel need a downgrade. Click Here
cmillz said on 8/Apr/20
5’10.5” is perfect for him IMO. Wasn’t there a poster who met him in person and estimated him to be around that range?
Ketchup said on 3/Apr/20
I don't think he removed his slippers there though. If he didn't, he's like 181 and a few millimeters.
Arthur! said on 20/Mar/20
Rob, isn't it funny that Kimmel wasn't ''shocked'' with his 5'11 3/4 measurement? He has been insisting on the 6'1 figure for years, yet when the practioner called his real height even though he had a mild disdain he had a look like he already knew this was his measurement all along and didn't comment on it.

Even if he was barefoot it was a midday measurement, but I guess 5'11.5 can be definitely argued for him now. Certainly no less than 5'11.25, and no more than 5'11.75. I didn't see her flattening his thinning hair too much to be honest though.
Editor Rob
If he claimed shoe height, then earlier in the day he could have got near 6ft 1 in them.

However, it's far from a stadiometer measurement.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Mar/20
The tape measure is not accurate. 5'11 is the best he could be on the low side. 5'11 3/4 would be his out of bed height.
Canson said on 12/Mar/20
If he didn’t take the slippers off Rob’s listing is almost spot on. Only question is what time of the day did it take place?
pov said on 10/Mar/20

4:50 jimmy kimmel measured as 5'11 and 3 quaters, my guess is he was wearing sandals. and also kevin heart was measured higher than his listing.

but this proves jimmy isnt his 6'1 claim anyway. 5'11 for me
Phail said on 8/Mar/20
Lmao he literally got measured at 5'11.75", but Rob isn't going to change the listing as it will mess up 100s of other listings...
Editor Rob
It's a shame they didn't use a stadiometer, in this case a tape measure which has been cut and there's a skirting grid on the wall, plus a cardboard box to measure. Did he take his slippers off like hart. Still, it was interesting!

Even when somebody gets measured on a stadiometer, there are errors. Gordon Ramsay had somebody read out 6ft 2.5 when she measured him, when it was 6ft 1 3/8th.
Cash said on 5/Mar/20
Hey Rob, same with the Kevin Hart post I made, the lady in this new video measured Jimmy Kimmel at 5'11 3/4. What do you think?
Video: Click Here
Time: 4:46
Editor Rob
I don't think Jimmy would have tried to rise up a bit on toes like Hart, so it's not that unbelievable.
Philip S said on 4/Mar/20
Rob, any thoughts on his contemporary, Bill Simmons? (I apologize if this has been previously asked) Here's a pic of him with 6'2" Steph Curry. Seems possibly below 5'11" depending on the angle.

Editor Rob
Angle doesn't help him there, but 6ft might be possible.
TheBat said on 2/Mar/20
Jimmy is 5'11" flat, wouldn't be surprised at all if he measures at 5'10 7/8".
Visitor said on 11/Feb/20
Vsquad: It's a "regular shoe" in that it's a standard shoe, there are no lifts, no tricks etc. like I mentioned. I've had these shoes for a long time, I don't know/remember where they're from. Anyway, the outer heel looks to be 2.9 cm, then there's the thin leather bottom, then a regular insole, a sock and... there you go. I could check what it is barefooted and without an insole, if that makes sense... who wears shoes that way?

...and out of curiosity, I DID check it that way. Conveniently it looks like I'm exactly 181 cm right now, barefooted. In those shoes, without socks, without insoles: 184.3 cm. That's +3.3 cm with the shoe alone. An insole and a sock is easily 5 mm so there you have it.

You could argue it's still "only 184.8-185.0, not 6'1" but the point was that claiming a shoe height, this kind of thing is very possible.
Vsquad said on 1/Feb/20

How are you able to go from 181 cm flat to 185 cm in regular dress shoes? That is 4 cm which is a lot. No regular dress shoe gives that amount that I know of... Please tell me where you got your shoe lmao.

I'm 183.5 cm at night, and the "thickest" dress shoes I have only get me to 186.5. And that's fresh out of the box.
Canson said on 31/Jan/20
@Visitor: peak may have been this or even 5’11” flat. Today 5’10.75
Visitor said on 29/Jan/20
I honestly see no reason for a downgrade.

I've done this before and I just did it again. After being up for quite a while now, I measure 181 cm flat barefoot and... 185 cm in my dress shoes. Regular dress shoes, no lifts, no anything, no tricks.

So seriously, IF Kimmel is merely referring to height in shoes, 6'1" is not out of the picture, and some measure over 180 cm barefoot makes perfect sense. His stocky build definitely makes him appear shorter sometimes.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Dec/19
Aha - so Jimmy is an American chat show host! How about a comment from an English person for a change? I bet Jimmy has many fantastic tales to tell about the stars he met! I'm green with envy, in the nicest possible way - of COURSE! 🤢

5ft11.5. 😁👍
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Dec/19
Yeah, Kimmel's only 6'1" waking up in the morning with construction boots.
cmillz said on 13/Dec/19
5’10 range without a doubt imo, but not under 5’10. Not over 5’10.5” either
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Dec/19
Lol for Kimmel self claim first driving license get listed 6'1 that's probably a mugshot with shoes on and a hair.

181cm is fine for him. Not under 5ft11 anyway
Kimblemur said on 3/Dec/19
You are not 6’1
TheBat said on 28/Nov/19
He should be downgraded to 5'11" flat. I also wouldn't be surprised if he measures at 5'10 7/8".
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Oct/19
Rob, you def listed Kimmel a bit too high as Sebastian Stan was then a proper 5'11 1/4 guy. Click Here Click Here you can see how Magic Johnson stack up with Kimmel. Magic isn't over 6'7 1/4 and could be as low as 6'7 now and it looks to be 8.25-8.5" between them from proper comparison on 2nd picture. Kimmel low is def happening to be 5'10 3/4 so should get a downgrade at 5'11.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Oct/19
Honestly sometimes Kimmel look nothing over 182cm with shoes. Maybe his posture isn't good enough. I could buy 180cm barefoot and 6'0 with shoes.
Canson said on 5/Oct/19
@Greg: agreed! I doubt there would be much difference between you and Jimmy if you stood next to him. Maybe 1/2” tops. He would be 5’10.5-11 whereas you’re 5’10.25-.5
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 29/Sep/19
Solid 5ft 11....
cmillz said on 26/Sep/19
Never full 5’11 imo. If he has lost any height, it’s very minimal.
Canson said on 11/Aug/19
@Greg: maybe in his hay day he was the full 5’11” but today looks a weak 5’11” imho. Lol he tries to convince himself that he’s really 6’1”
Crab said on 5/Aug/19
Hey Rob, what's your guess for Andrew VanWyngarden (singer from MGMT) next to Kimmel:

Click Here

Obviously sans footwear it's difficult to tell, but he's listed at 5'10" on Google and that looks pretty accurate, looks somewhere in the 5'10"-5'11" range to me. Based on that photo alone I'd say 5'10.5"
Editor Rob
Possibly looks near 5ft 10.5 there
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Junior: I think peak height 5’11”. Today 5’10.5-.75
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Jul/19
That 6'1 claim was too much. Kimmel is lucky to hit 180cm jackpot than average 5'9 1/2 in shoes average american male. At least he is confidently 6'0 with dress shoes on.
berta said on 31/Jul/19
i dont think he is shorter than this. this is thew lowest. probably 181,5 range
cmillzz said on 22/Jul/19
I didn’t think Kimmel lost any height yet, but it’s possible maybe.

He’s overlisted. Peak height 5’11” today prob 5’10.5-5’10.75

@Junior: that puts Kimmel no taller than 5’10.75”
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jul/19
@TheBat I had Kimmel at 180cm too which is 5'10 7/8 much agree with your estimate.

@Cmillz: seeing him with Brady MWP and Kobe he looks 5’10.5-5’11 range. Fallon looks a more legit 5’11”
cmillzz said on 5/Jul/19
Seeing him next to legit 6’4 Tom Brady, I can’t see how he’d measure a full 5’11.
TheBat said on 4/Jul/19
5'10 7/8" for Jimmy. I can't believe his 6'1" claim at all.
Ian555 said on 30/Jun/19
Rob why does Kimmel consistently claim to be 6’ 1” even though he’s obviously not that tall in these pictures with with legit 6’ 1” former President Barack Obama and Chris Pine who claims to be 6 foot but I think is more like 6’ 0 3/4” or 6’ 0 1/2” at a minimum Click Here, Click Here.
Editor Rob
Maybe he once got close to it in shoes.
pov said on 29/Jun/19
Jimmy Kimmel definitely wears heels as as he looked taller 1/1.5inches taller than a legit 5'11 Himesh Patel (former Eastenders actor who played Tamwar) on his show. And his walk is unnatural. I think Jimmy Kimmel is probably 180/181cm barefoot.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jun/19
5'11.25" is Busting a Gut measurement for Kimmel.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Jun/19
Tipping toes taking picture with over 6'2-6'3 guests on his show is part of Jimmy little's ego on doing it to make his 6'1 claim.

He’s 182cm in a pair of 270s maybe, lol.

Rob, did he start out here at 6ft1?
Editor Rob
I cannot remember this one, but I think at times this mark may be a low range for him, he does manage at times to pull off 182 range.

Harder to accurately gauge Damon’s height in that video though tbh.

I really think Kimmel might actually be 5’10 range now.

Kimmel is at best 5’10.5”, not really sure if he’s lost any height. I don’t think he has in my opinion.
Canson said on 30/Dec/18
@Michael 5’10: one poster here met him and estimated him to be 179 range. A weak 5’11”. I do believe in his prime he was 5’11” however. 6’1” is crazy tho as he didn’t look even close even with a guy like Reggie Miller who has claimed to be 6’5-6’6 before
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 16/Dec/18
Jimmy Kimmel is more like 5'11", but he claims 6'1", what a joke. Another guy who wants to be tall.
MurMiles said on 15/Dec/18
Kimmel at some point must have become very height-insecure and started wearing helpful footwear. There are lots of older photos of him with his 6-2 pal Adam Carolla where he's not within 2 inches of him, then lately they're nearly the same height. Check them out in bowling shoes Click Here 15 years ago.
Gian92 said on 13/Oct/18
Near Dua Lipa barefoot he seems 5'11 , not more for me
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Oct/18
Damon is at least 5'9" unless he's worn lifts constantly and I've never seen any evidence of that. I think his stocky build and seeing him next to taller guys a lot makes people think of him as short and that's where the 5'8" stuff comes from. @Canson: I can't say I'm a big fan of Kimmel. Partially because I remember watching him on The Man Show, but now he's like "The Masculine Feminist" if you remember the MWC character played by Jerry Springer. It's just too much of a stretch for me to believe it's authentic. I don't care what Kimmel claims much except for that his 6'1" claim is ridiculous since he just doesn't look close to it. Some 5'11" range guys can sort of get away with it, but he's not one of them. He tends to give a shorter impression if anything so he should have been happy to claim 6'0".

if he's 2 inches taller than matt damon then that makes him 5'10 unless damon was wearing lifts.
Canson said on 20/Sep/18
I agree with what you said Rising in regards to him measuring AD in shoes and thinking nothing of it. It says a lot about him tho because we even heard AD say “that’s in shoes though”. I don’t have a lot of respect for Kimmel overall especially because he lies about his height. I would’ve loved to have seen him try to inflate Eric Bana when he told Jimmy that he’s 6’2”. He thought he was taller than that by his reaction. Of course he didn’t try it and Bana didn’t get put in the position but still
Canson said on 19/Sep/18
@Christian: yep I had similar happen. I walked into a DMV once and stood by the height chart and the police officer asked how tall I was and I told him I’m 6’4. I had shoes on At the time. The cop said “you’re close to the top of the chart” which is 6’6” he said if you were listed 6’4” I may not be able to identify you (he was joking). But then I told him well I have shoes on and he said “oh yea that’s true”. I took them off and he stood next to me and surely enough 1.5-2” from the top. This was a few years back. He said yea you’re probably closer to 6’4” than 6’5”. Then have had people I know say “you look almost as tall as my 6’6” friend brother cousin etc. so yep I’ve gotten it too. You’re probably built similar to me with long legs and a short torso but a 5’2 lady guessing that surprises me. Even in your case, you’re technically closer to 6’5” than 6’6” since you close the day at 6’5 1/4 to 3/8. If I met you in person I would guess you nearer 6’5” more than likely

Btw I used to have 6’5” on my license too as I was measured 6’4.5 years back in college. I have it as 6’4” now over the last few years. When I changed it though I had no problem doing it. I updated it and I believe I told them that it was off and that I’m actually 6’4”

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Sep/18

I went to the DMV last week to renew my driver's license (which my old license had me at 6'6" because I used to claim 6'6" several years ago), and a woman behind the counter asked me for my height and weight, and I told her that I'm 6'5" 221 lbs. She asked me "You're only 6'5? I figured you'd be at least 6'6 or something like that". I responded that I'm about 6'5.5" but since licenses can't list half inches, I rather just go with 6'5" since I'm closer to it than 6'6". But what's strange was that the woman was barely about 5'2" so telling apart a 6'5" and a 6'6" guy wouldn't be so easy from her point of view. Has that ever happened to you or someone you know at the DMV?
Canson said on 12/Sep/18
@Christian: I had my BMW in for service one day recently and they gave me a 1 Series (I drive a 5-series). My service advisor who I’ve know for years commented to me when I picked it up that he tells his customers that he has a “6’6” client who fit in a 1-series. And I told him “Um I’m actually 6’4” not 6’6”. He says “Oh i know” but I say it for effect for selling point. He’s asked before and said 6’4” to him and even guessed my height before. One of the other people working in the service dept is 6’2 and commented that im only about 6’4” as he was able to tell (I had casual shoes that day and he’s seen me before) And because he’s assisted with the loaner process befoee with me and saw my license that morning as a matter of fact. I don’t get why people do that honestly. Just exaggeration in general is a bit annoying to me. It’s not like me being 6’4 has any less social benefit than if I were to magically shoot up to 6’6”. I guess people want to be taller until you get to a height like 6’6 or 6’7” then guys like Ali Baba and S.J.H will tell you it’s too tall
Canson said on 12/Sep/18
@Christian: agreed! And it’s funny because a 6’3” guy will try to claim 6’5” yet if he really were your height he probably would still claim 6’5. It’s like people know the cutoff points to a T. A 6’5” guy like you would probably not want to really be 6’7” just like I wouldn’t want to be a barefoot 6’6” as both heights are a bit inconvenient like S.J.H and Ali Baba (two real 6’7 and 6’6 guys at their peaks) have highlighted
Canson said on 12/Sep/18
@Rising: agreed. I think he was simply agreeing with kimmel not to embarrass him. I actually have CP at 5’11” flat max and it’s possible he’s the same as Kimmel. My thinking is that Kimmel is a bit less tho. Maybe peak 5’11” and 5’11 5/8 now perhaps. I know S.J.H met him and said he’s 179cm roughly (weak 5’11) but maybe he’s a full 5’11”. But yea Paul isn’t 6’1 in shoes he’s 6’0” max in them. Kimmel and Conan seem to always bring up height like Anthony Davis for example Kimmel measured him in shoes. Conan goes out of his way to ask someone height and inflated them like he did Neeson Klitschko Selleck etc. both guys probably know they aren’t as tall as they claim and that they’re nowhere near 6’1” barefoot and 6’3” barefoot in real life
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Sep/18

As long as society holds on to the "taller is better" mentality, a lot of people will continue to inflate height, unfortunately.
Rising - 174 cm said on 31/Aug/18
@Canson: I hadn't thought of height loss in Kimmel's case, but I'd be surprised if he's lost a half inch already. His height looks to go up and down for photos at least depending on whether he has shorter or taller guests. I don't think he wears lifts so I think it's how they take the photos. He actually looks Rob's listing on stage at the Emmys with Matt Damon, whom I'm convinced is about 5'9.5" and Kimmel looks surprisingly close to Jensen Ackles(182 range, imo). I suspect he comes off shorter at times because a solid 5'11" guy claiming 6'1" only highlights the fact he's not that tall. As for the Reggie Miller interview, Miller had called Kimmel 5'6" and Kimmel did say "how dare you" tongue in cheek. I couldn't tell the difference from the angle when they stood up, but Reggie kind of shrugged and said "6-1, yeah. Alright, you're Chris Paul height." I doubt Reggie thought Kimmel was near 6'1" barefoot, but it seems he realized he wasn't THAT short and certainly closer to 6'1" than 5'6". He must be talking in shoes again as Paul only measured 6'1" in shoes at the combine and some would guess he was closer to his high than to his low.
viper said on 31/Aug/18
Still in his prime. No taller than 5-10
Canson said on 28/Aug/18
@Rising: I think in his prime he may measure at 5’11” but today maybe 5’10.5
Rising - 174 cm said on 27/Aug/18
@Visitor: I don't know. If you look at the 2003 quote above, he seems pretty serious. He could have made the same point about being listed 5'7" by saying 5'11" or even 6'0". I wasn't necessarily saying Jimmy honestly believes he's 6'1", but I think he wants people to think he's that tall. If he's just over 5'11", it's possible he's been measured 6' and change in shoes and rounds up from that. In that sense, he might actually believe it. Remember he thought nothing of Anthony Davis being measured in shoes.
Canson said on 27/Aug/18
@Visitor: yes Reggie Miller was the one you’re talking about and he himself has actually said that he’s between 6’5-6’6”. So even if Kimmel used his listed height of 6’1” and Miller 6’7”, there is clearly more than 6” between them. Miller is likely 197cm or so and Kimmel is 5’10” and change (not even a proper 5’11). Metta World Peace admitted to being 6’5 1/2 (I posted this link to Rob right before he made a page for him). We aren’t sure if that is MWP’s low but I could say maybe he’s 6’5.25 at worst or 196cm absolute worst. I could give him 6’5.25 honestly as he’s got Kobe by at least half inch. Either way, maybe a peak Kimmel is 5’11 but today he’s prob 5’10.5-.75. Jimmy Fallon is taller than him but likely max the height Rob lists Kimmel, not 5’11.5 like he’s listed here. I could even give Fallon 5’11 or 5’11 1/8 and Kimmel something like 5’10 5/8. IMHO Kimmel would not even be a full 6’0” in shoes. Saddest part is that he gets upset with people who downgrade him when he’s not even that height that he claims in shoes. At least if he said he’s 6’0”, it would be more believable than 6’1” he claims. I don’t respect him purely because of the lies he tells about his height
Visitor said on 26/Aug/18
@Rising. Funny... I've thought the opposite (kind of anyway), Kimmel's clearly joking, not "dead serious", when he says he's "6'1". I think he's very aware that he's not actually that tall barefooted. He also probably knows for sure that other celebrities claim to be taller than they are, maybe that's the real joke. I don't know.

I can't remember who it was, but a couple years back some 6'6 or whatever basketball player was on Kimmel and he again did the "I'm 6'1" thing. Then they both stood up and it was ridiculously obvious he wasn't really 6'1. I thought that was definitely done for laughs.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Aug/18
Kimmel 6'1 claim was a joke. He barely reach 6'1 only with his solid 1.1" shoes on with a brush up hair.

I don't think he is, but maybe sometimes he can look taller than he generally does.
Rising - 174 cm said on 20/Aug/18
Kimmel has lost a lot of weight in recent years. He use to be fat back when he co-hosted The Man Show. It's been well over a decade now, but I'd bet he topped 205 back then. And I can't really see Damon over 5'9.5", but Kimmel looks close to 2" taller in this video, imo: Click Here Having seen Fallon with people I know around his height, I think he's close to what Rob lists him. Fallon was taller than 5'11" Alec Baldwin at the 2010 International Emmys. I don't think Fallon wears lifts since he often has low cut dress shoes. You can contrast the angle around the laces of his shoe and the position of his ankle with Tom Cruise's 2" elevators: Click Here And Kimmel is dead serious when he claims 6'1" as he's claimed it many times. It's too bad the rest of his material can't be that funny!
Peter175 said on 17/Aug/18
With matt Damon looks a flat 5'11
Adds a good two inches to his height and about 30 lbs to his weight.

No way is he above 180
Visitor said on 11/Aug/18
@Canson: For Fallon, I'm going mainly by what he appeared some years back, when he was also listed as 5'10", not 6ft. I suspect lifts. Take a look at this for one example: Click Here . Supposedly, Trey Parker is 6' and Matt Stone 6'1". Look at their handshakes, both of them appear to be around 4" taller than Fallon and Stone is wearing the flattest sneakers on the planet against dress shoes. There's also that one pic out there where all the late night hosts are on stage together, Fallons shoes are so wedged he has trouble standing straight without falling forward.

I still don't believe Kimmel is anywhere near 6'1" BAREFOOT. In the (relatively) recent basketball clip with him and Ted Cruz, they did "bill" Kimmel as " 6'1 and 185 lbs " which was kind of funny (Cruz was also obviously not 5'11"...) . I'm really not sure if that was a joke or not. However, SUPPOSING that Kimmel is 181 cm, in some basketball shoes he could easily be 184 which is then rounded up... just like they do in the NBA. So yeah, he seems to be stating his height in shoes rounded up but I still see him as taller than Fallon. It's a small difference though.
Canson said on 19/Jul/18
@Visitor: I think it may be the other way around. Neither as tall as they’re listed here but Kimmel may have lost 1/4-1/2”. I think if any is 5’11 flat it’s Fallon Kimmel 5’10.5-5’10.75
Visitor said on 6/Jul/18
A tiny bit taller than Fallon, although both could be a bit shorter than they're listed. I'd say 5'11 flat for Kimmel and 5'10.75" for Fallon.
Canson said on 2/Jul/18
@Mad Sam: he claims his shoes and then some.

He honestly doesn’t look 181. 179-180 with 5’8”-5’8.25 Isaiah Thomas. Also sheds light on the other Isiah Thomas (Zeek) as he’s not 6’1” barefoot. Joe Dumars was 6’1” range barefoot and Thomas about 2” shorter

@Junior: yea peak 5’11 maybe but today 5’10.5. Reggie Miller called him “Chris Paul height” but only after Miller said he was 5’6 or 5’7. Miller was probably using a barefoot height for him and underestimated him a bit but Miller himself is “6’5/6’6” according to himself. Probably a weak 6’6” guy since he edges Jordan by an inch

I wouldn't go over 5'10 7/8 for Kimmel and probably hes losing height now.

If he's 6"1 then David Duchovny is 6"3

Possible that Duchovny is just over6" 183-184cm

Kimmel 178 - 179cm
He might be 5"11 with shoes on.
For me he looks just under 5"11 next to Duchovny (with shoes) both waring same dress shoes.

@Junior: yea along the lines of a weak 5’11”. Maybe 5’10.5 but not lower than that. Not sure where he got 6’1” from lol. I would’ve just said 6’0” unless that’s a reference to his peak height in shoes (meaning 5’11 range barefoot).
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Apr/18
Thought he look 5'10 with Kobe Bryant at first but i watch again the clip it could be the camera angle rolling the tricks and when the two standing face to face with full frame look more solid 6" different. Kobe is 6'4 3/4 so Kimmel is not under 5'10 3/4. Added someone like solid 181cm Fallon look half inch taller than Kimmel on stage then say just 1/4.

"I have no idea why you (or anyone else) would "lean" on that." Because I think he's far enough from 6ft1 that it's the more plausible option. It's not a slight against him or anything, I do actually like Kimmel and his show if you think I don't. I just don't find his claims convincing.

As for your points re: the quotes being old and Kimmel never mentioning height, he was still calling himself 6'1 as of 2015, and on his show too. Click Here

And I know he's 50, but I wouldn't think he's lost anything notable. He looks pretty similar now to how he did on The Man Show.
bugs said on 13/Jan/18

Kimmel is 50 years old. I specifically said he could've been measured 6'1" in shoes, or some equivalent of that, THIRTY YEARS AGO, when he was just a kid. It's possible he doesn't know his exact height as of today, like the majority of people. It's also possible his deliberately trying to pass himself off as much taller than he really is, but I have no idea why you (or anyone else) would "lean" on that. I myself do not have that sort of prejudice in this case, maybe he inflates, maybe he doesn't. I think a good reminder to people would also be that the quotes on the top of this page are from 2006 and 2003. Those are TWO OLD interviews. I have watched Kimmels TV show quite a bit, for years, and nowhere in the show is his height ever brought up. Jimmy FALLON is constantly standing right next to someone when he's playing those games with guests and stuff so height differences are apparent, but Kimmel does NOT do that. Accordingly, there's MUCH less emphasis on anyone's height on his show, be it Kimmel himself or the guests.

As to your second point, I highlighted the word 'SUPPOSEDLY', I thought that was supposed to make it clear what I meant. Which is, people say "Person X, who is 6'1" was on Kimmel's show last night looked..." but nobody knows if that Person X is actually 6'1". That person is only SUPPOSEDLY 6'1" so a comparison between them is not definite proof of either ones real height.

That's what the post was about. Proof. There's no proof to this or that, and what especially annoyed me (as this site is supposed to be about HEIGHT, not other things) is that there are people who are downgrading Kimmel because they don't like him or whatever. He is the height he is regardless of whether you like him or not, stop messing around with with deliberately false estimates etc., like the people saying he's 5'9" to 5'10" (which would for example make him shorter than Matt Damon and is obviously not true).
Paul NS (6ft0.5) said on 11/Jan/18
I don't think 6'1 in shoes is plausible at all, his shoes would have to be super thick for that to be true. I think it's more likely that he was measured a bit over 6' in shoes and rounded up. That or he's just inflating his height because he wants to. (I'd lean on the latter myself.)

What does "Sometimes he looks (on TV) the same height that a SUPPOSEDLY 6'1" guy looks" mean? Are you saying he can look 6'1?
bugs said on 8/Jan/18
"forgive him"? What's there to "forgive"? Looking at the comments, many people seem to be upset that he has claimed a higher height than they think he actually is and using that as a reason to downgrade him.

Where's the definite proof he's this height or that height? Sometimes he looks (on TV) the same height that a SUPPOSEDLY 6'1" guy looks and other times he looks shorter than some other SUPPOSEDLY 6'1" guy. And I think it's completely plausible he was measured, perhaps 30 years ago, his claimed 6'1" in shoes, and is just going with that exacty like a lot of other people do. BTW his shoes are regularly clearly visible on the show and there are no obvious lifts (foot in a clear upwards angle inside the shoe) so he's not "cheating" in that respect.

Whether he inflates himself or not, even if it's on purpose, just get over it. That's not the point. Can't you just try and assess his height objectively?

Some people here say here say he's 5'9", or 5'10". I don't see how, he's definitely a bit taller than McCounaughey and more than just a bit taller than Damon. He was clearly taller than Christopher Lloyd in 2015. He looked roughly the same height as Bill Murray in 2015. It's completely POSSIBLE he's even a little bit taller than he is listed here, no one here has measured him and again there's no definite proof to the contrary.
Paul NS (6ft0.5) said on 5/Jan/18
Yeah, 2 inch boosts are almost never believable. Even average Joes who don't care much about height usually sniff them out as bull, especially one like 5'11 to 6'1 where you're going from an above-average height to full-on tall.

It just makes me wonder if 5'11 range guys who claim to be 6'1 or over like Kimmel, Gil Birmingham, Luke Goss, Justin Timberlake, Josh Peck, etc. have ever been called out personally on their blatant frauding. Surely they know they're lying. Would they double down?

The writer who described him as 5'7 should get glasses, though...
Anonymous said on 24/Dec/17
I could forgive him for claiming 6’ but 6’1 is just a silly claim
Bugs said on 20/Dec/17
I don't get why it's such a big deal to some that Kimmel once said or thought that he was 6'1". Maybe he WAS measured 6'1" in shoes. On the other hand, the guy who "decided" he's 5'7" is WAY more off. This whole site is about peoples heights, not about their attitudes or politics, right?

Kimmel and Fallon have different builds, Kimmel has MUCH wider shoulders and that makes him appear stocky in individual pics. Fallon uses OBVIOUS lifts (often). But in the end, they are very close in height. You'd really need to see them side by side without shoes to figure out exactly which one is taller. I don't really know where that quarter inch edge for Fallon has originated, I'd list them the same height for a start.
Canson said on 15/Dec/17
@Greg: yea miller was but Miller is 6’5/6’6 barefoot by his own admission prob closer to 6. Kobe also looked at least 6” taller than kimmel I believe 179 maybe peak he was closer to 5’11 tho. I think you would be similar in height with him nothing noticeable if he were taller

In this video he does not look 181cm compared to Jack Black. Kimmel is more like 175-178cm. My sister is about 169cm and I am 177cm and our height difference looks about the same as does with these two.

@bman1: i think it’s safe to say go with the JJ watt pic. That’s the best out of the ones mentioned and Watt is reliably measured at the height he is. Most Athletes are a little less than what they measure at the combine since it’s earlier in the day but i honestly have to say Watt looks his height. If he dips below 6’5.25 it’s to maybe 6’5 1/8 some days and it would be hard to see him under that at a normal low. 196 vs 179ish isn’t hard to see there honestly esp after another poster here SJH also met him and said the same thing that he’s around 5’10.5-.75
fisherman said on 18/Nov/17
@Slim that pic would put Kimmel in the 5'11 to 5'11.25" range. Not surprisingly, that's almost exactly where most people have guessed him.

"selfish and arrogant"? What does that have to do with height? Yup, nothing.

@Slim185: That pic with JJ Watt is very convincing-- seems to put Kimmel at probably 5'10 or '11 at most.
However, 6'4 baseball player Carlos Correra was also Kimmel's guest on Nov 10 (same night as Idris Elba). Even though Kimmel and Correra (in sneakers) didn't do a shoulder bump when they shook hands, their height difference looked like it would have put Kimmel at around 6'.
So, I have to admit that I'm confused about Kimmel's height.

He is selfish and arrogant aswell.
Bard said on 12/Nov/17
Lol check the pic with JJ Watt and then try to tell me Kimmel's 6'1. That would make Watt close to 6'8.
Bugsy said on 12/Nov/17
Nope, not as tall... Kimmel is taller. Probably. I've never seen Kimmel wear obvious lifts. Fallon on the other hand...

A very good comparison is them and Matthew McCounaughey. When Matthew was on Fallon's show, Fallon wore oversized shoes with a cuban heel and Matthew just regular dress shoes. In those circumstances, Fallon looked 1 cm taller. When Matthew did a skit with Kimmel, both of them wore sneakers, and Kimmel looked 2 cm taller.

Kimmel, although he has lost weight from before, is still also a bigger guy overall which gives the impression that he's short. But he's not. Everything points to Kimmel being the tallest one of those three. By a small margin, but still.
Canson said on 11/Nov/17
@bman1: I think it’s also Idris isn’t as tall as listed. Closer to 6’2” than 6’3. Boris khodjoe I highly doubt is over 6’3 and he can look taller than him. Kimmel isn’t as tall as Fallon
bman1 said on 11/Nov/17
Idris Elba (6'3") was on Kimmel's show tonight. When they shook hands, they did a shoulder bump. I totally expected Elba to dwarf Kimmel, but there wasn't that much of a height difference-- maybe 2-2.5 inches, but not much. I was shocked!! In fact, that's why I jumped on here to check Kimmel's stats. I never would have guessed it, but Kimmel at 6' or 6'1 may be accurate or close. (btw: Elba was wearing sneakers.)
SylviaM said on 10/Nov/17
He is 6’1”. I’ve met him. He’s very tall.
Slim 185 said on 10/Nov/17
179 tops...... what an egotistical man.
Canson said on 6/Nov/17
@Bard: well said. Don’t see how he can be angry (for accuracy purposes at least) when someone guessed him 3.5” under his actual height when he’s lying up 2.5” as is. Even if he were to say he’s 5’11 (morning height) I could still say he’s upping it by 2” which is no better than someone downgrading him like that really.
Charlie said on 6/Nov/17
5'8 for Jimmy Kimmel. I watched a Interview where He discusses his relationship with Matt Damon where he tells the reporter that he and Matt are enemies. I think they are joking around.The video shows Jimmy showing off photos of him and his baby. The men who were posing with him looked a good 5 inches taller than him. Hollywood is full of short people.I am sure if you met some of these so called 6'0 actors you will be surprised how short they really are. Perhaps 5'7 maybe 5'6.I feel Jimmy is 5'8 at most.
Bard said on 6/Nov/17
There is no universe where this guy is 6'1. He looks 5'10.5. 5'7 is hardly any more ridiculous than his claim.
MD said on 2/Nov/17

What are you seeing about him that keeps him at this height? This is one of the more egregious mis-listings, I'd think.
Editor Rob
I've seen a fair amount over the years, I feel the 181 is still possible, but can also see how people estimate him at 180cm. The more measured athletes he meets, the more his own 6ft 1 claim looks a bit close to a 2 inch inflation.
Canson said on 31/Oct/17
@Slim: that’s exactly how SJH pegged him as 5’10.5 when he met him. And Jared I see a solid 6’4” guy at 193cm. Kimmel doesn’t look as tall as Fallon imho. It’s quite sad and utterly ridiculous that he inflated his height to 6’1”. At least to make it sound normal say he’s 6’0 lol or “about” it. I wonder how he guessed JJ Watt or asked him about his height when the programs say he’s 6’5”. He looks sub 5’11 with him too lol
Slim 6' said on 30/Oct/17
He even looks 5’10.5”/179 tops next to Jared padalecki: Click Here
Canson said on 29/Oct/17
@Slim: also add AD with his thick afro. He counted that as his height. He likely if he has grown isn’t over maybe 6’9.5. Demarcus cousins was measured 6’9.5 supposedly (has to be a morning height) and is likely max 6’9 but doesn’t look all that much shorter than AD
Slim 6' said on 27/Oct/17
Rob, you should put in the description “measured Anthony Davis in thick sneakers and tried to pass that off as his real height.”
Canson said on 26/Oct/17
@Johno: lol I can’t “like” someone who lies about their height and gets angry when someone calls him out or inflates others to make himself taller

Canson said on 20/Oct/17
@Slim: yes rob would definitely downgrade him. SJH another regular poster here is 6’6.9 and has met him. Yes a bit far away in height but uses cm as he is 200.3 at his lowest and said himself that Kimmel isn’t any taller than relatives of his who are 5’10 1/2. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if David Beckham edged Kimmel or is the same height as he is at worst. Esp after he pulled that stunt and measured Anthony Davis in shoes on his show with an Afro and told him he’s 6’11. AD likely isn’t over 6’9.5 honestly
Ikr such an immature almost 50 year old man adding 3 inches to height and getting angry when told he isn't as tall his claim. Becks would edge Kimmel by the quarter inch. Becks is more 5'10.75" and Kimmel is 5'10.5".

He even looks 179 CM next to 193 CM listed Jared padalecki. find the footwear for yourself if you care about it so much.

I don't understand why people here are so angry at him for claiming 6'1. He could easily measure around 6'1 in dress shoes. He never claimed "6'1 barefoot" and it is very common to state your height in shoes

Is that you again Jimmy ? 😆
Slim 6' said on 20/Oct/17
Rob, do you plan on getting tickets to his show and seeing him in person?

If so you'll definitely give him a 179
Downgrade, he just isn't the proper 180-181 like Jimmy Fallon.

I live in Glasgow, Scotland so it's unlikely. 👍

@Rob, he's going to be 50 years old in a month, do you think he's lost a fraction?

not seen anything to suggest it, but it's usually 50-55 that a lot of men have a first small loss of height.

It’s even funnier if he indeed drops into the 5’10 range and claiming 6’1

He's a strong 5'11 - he's either this or 5'11½. Proportionally speaking, you can tell he's close to six feet. He could measure something like 181½cm in the afternoon.
He's 179-181 upper average/start of tall.

Bugsy said on 23/Aug/17
Canson, Christian: I guess that would depend on where you are. In the US the average male height is about 5'9", in most European countries it is 5'10"+. Especially for young men. I don't dip under 5'11" even late at night but I do constantly encounter guys who are taller than me when I travel. The point being that those statistics do seem to be accurate.
Canson said on 14/Aug/17
Lol he hates when someone decides how tall he is? He seems like the type who would assess someone else a height in correlation with his own lie he's telling esp since he's 2" or more off
Canson said on 14/Aug/17
It doesn't surprise me that he does lie on his own height. he measured Anthony Davis on his show in shoes and not properly as his hair gave him a boost.

@Bugsy: 5'11 isn't really average Height that's above. It looks only average when a real 5'8" or 5'9" guy claims it
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 13/Aug/17

I agree, except for the fact that 5'11" guys aren't really average. They're tallish but not tall. Average would be 5'9" range or a bit under.
Slim 182 cm said on 12/Aug/17
His 6'1 claim is ridiculous, 5'11 is where I have him.
Bugsy said on 9/Aug/17
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8)

Yeah. 5'11" is quite a normal, average height... for men, which means someone that height is very much on the taller side in general (including women). But for whatever reason most people want to be or at least be seen as taller than they are, even if they are already tall.
This site is much more sensible than other sources but in my eyes still almost every listing is overestimated by about .25", some slightly more.

Jimmy Kimmel looks precisely like just a normal guy, not tall, not short. Never really sticks out. 5'11".

Wow and he actually claims 6'1. Love to see him with Christiano Renaldo to see how much shorter he looks as he honestly can look what SJH says compared to Barkley or Kobe two guys 194-195 or 195 solid maybe on Kobe
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 10/Jul/17
He looks about 5'10.5" next to basketball players like Kobe and Barkley, but looks 5'11"+ next to everyone else based off their listings on celebheights. It goes to show that most celebs on this site are a bit overlisted.
Dejavu said on 8/Jul/17
He is definitely not only 5'10.5. He looks 2 inches taller than Matt Damon at the oscars and I don't see Matt under 5'9.5.
S.J.H said on 20/Jun/17
Click Here Watch from 0:19 onward. 195cm Kobe easily look over 15cm taller than Kimmel like 16-17cm top on him. As i tell no lie i've seem Kimmel up close in person not over 5'10.5 and could be as low as solid 5'10.25 , kobe might hold 6'5 for awhile in this clip drop to lowest at night at 195cm
grizz said on 17/Jun/17
@Valhalla, I'd give him 80 kilos now. Adam Levine is 5'11 and 75 kilos and he's considerably thinner than Jimmy. And Jimmy's a millionaire ($35 mil net worth)-it would be an insult that he's wealthier than guys like Harrison Ford or Schwarzenegger. I've heard lots of stories about his insecurities. First the weight (which he got covered, for now), then height (6'1 come on, even I, a 6footer, wouldn't dare claiming that height), then his hairline (he mocked at one Pickup artist because of his baldness, even though Jimmy had the same issue which he fixed with operation(s),google it).
Valhalla said on 14/Jun/17
I know the quotes probably old but nowadays he looks 75 kilos not 205 pounds. This guy must be insecure asf lol yet he's a billionaire
Animus said on 11/Jun/17
He looked about three inches taller than Michael Keaton when he appeared on Kimmel's show recently. 5'11.25"-5'11.5" sounds right for Kimmel.
Bruce 5'11 1/2 said on 4/Jun/17
It's ok with me if you're 5'11 1/2 and claiming to be 6' but 6'1 it's not funny anymore......5'11 1/2 max for this chap.

Yeah, Jimmy seems to be a bit insecure with his ridiculous claims. He'd probably snap if that situation really happens.

Imagine him asking Chris Pine: "How tall are you?"
Chris: "6 feet"
Kimmel: "No way! I'm 6'1, you gotta be 6'2 at least!"
Chris: "Nope, 6 feet."
*Kimmel angrily stares at Pine, you can feel the tension in the air*

i think under 180 is to short. 181-182 seems fine

5'11.5 is arguable, but not much more. 5'11.25 is spot on. I don't see him under 5'11 as well.

he can pull off 182 range, for a long time he was that range here, but at times I think maybe he's not quite 182...

Click Here Scroll to the back of this clip. Hoff is 6'3.5 next to jimmy kimmel whom i met at 5'10.5 it's indeed accurate. Hoff peak is 6'4 and kimmel was never over 5'10.5

Really Jimmy 6'1? Then again he is a comedian... I watch his show a lot and my guess would be 5'11.25.

@Duck man Yes well I said more than 1 inch. I can see a difference between 5'11" or 6'1" or 6'3" tbh. One is above average, one is solid tall and the last one is very tall. 210 cm is literally giant range. But you can put say 5'11"-6'0", 6'1"-6'2" and 6'3"-6'4" in the same categories btw.

Thanks for the offer but I'll keep the nick as it suits me because I write unfiltered :) (exactly what I think without the need of insulting someone).
Duck man said on 27/Feb/17
@honestslovene ok i'm guessing the people on this site are Obsessed With Height, and think about it every time they meet someone etc. even if its just in the back of their head. So maybe 1 inch of height is noticeable to you, but to the majority of people on earth 1 inch is nothing. I myself am 189cm and if i met someone who was even 185cm i would consider them as basically the same height as me.. considering people go up to like 210cm, 2.5cm is really quite insignificant...

edit; chose a better nickname
HonestSlovene said on 19/Feb/17
@so Sorry, but anything more than 1 inch of difference is a noticable difference in terms of height (1.5 inches or more). A 5'11 guy can never look 6'1 BUT he can appear 5'10" or 6'0" if you consider the effect of posture/weight/clothing/head size etc. Kimmel really isn't more than 5'11" flat so his 6'1" claim is quite laughable tbh.
Dan said on 19/Jan/17
Can you add a page for rapper Quavo of the Migos? He looks about an inch taller than Kimmel in this clip. How tall would you say he is? 6'0.5-6'1 range possible?

Editor Rob: I wouldn't have guessed as much as 1.5, but I could see about an inch being possible there. Not sure how big Benedict's footwear is compared to Jimmy's, it looked bigger for certain, how much I'm not sure.

Do you think that video leaves a possibility for Kimmel at 5'11 flat?

Unless Cumberbatch had almost 2 cm more footwear than Kimmel, which I doubt it, their heights don't add up. And there's even a possibility Cumberbatch is under 182, like 181, so bad news for our ''6'1'' chap here
Editor Rob
I still feel overall Jimmy at 181 is a best guess from all I've seen of him. I could see above and below that on occasions, but if he was much below or above that mark I'd be surpised.
