Maybe measuring tape in scotland cut off 2cm and Rob is atually closer to 5'9 :p

These photos bear out what I've noticed before - the closer the camera, the smaller a height difference appears.

Looks about 5'9 3/4". Not a strong 5'10" at all.
Zampo said on 22/Sep/18
5'9.75, can't see him measuring a mm above 5'10.
Nik said on 18/Jul/18
He can pull off the stated height!
Bobby said on 26/Jun/18
177/178cm would be my guess, he can look both.

In case it hasn't been pointed out, on the 2000's TV series, "The 4400", was listed as 6'. I'd say 5'10" is closer.

He seems to look 5'10.5 at least, in the top picture while the bottom one he appears to be at most 1.8 inches taller. It's close to say that he's a decent 5'10.

Rob, if you were few mm over 173cm on the 2 photo above then he is close to 5'10 but i hardly see him over 4cm taller than you
said on 6/Nov/16
Honestly he look 5'9 with rob on top picture and bottom one look 5'9.25 let alone his hair volume advantage than big rob. I'll say 176cm at most
SJH, I wouldn't have guessed 179 or 176, but close to 178 in person.

5'10'' seems a stretch
NBAer said on 21/Mar/16
177cm or 5'9.75,just almost 5'10.

Rob, with the return of comments from 2005-2007 days it seems your estimates were generally about 0.5 inch more than they are listed today. Any idea on why this is? For example, you thought this guy could be 5ft 10.5 from seeing him in person.
Editor Rob: I think he can still pull off looking over 5ft 10 at times, but the more people I measured and spend time with, the better feeling I've gotten how various heights feel or look.

Been watching the 4400 lately and i knew he wasn't over 5'11. He has great posture and a really long neck though, gives a taller impression at times.
When he isn't standing next to tall people he can look around 5'11.

This guy looks like he was made in a Nazi laboratory, kind of like one of those East German athletes of the 80s haha. Appropriate name Gretsch too! Although I guess Hitler would prefer him to be taller!
Jared said on 27/Oct/14
@Balrog 176? So he would be just 3cm taller than Rob? Take a tape and see how little 3cm is. 1 inch is almost invisible in real life and you can see there's a way bigger height difference between them in the picture above.
TJE said on 17/Aug/14
Nope, 5'9-5'10 is still average, but people are getting taller.
Joel looks 5'9.5 in both pics. 5'10 is possible.
taha said on 31/May/14
Hey is 6'1 average these days so many guys on the web say they're 6'3 plus and that 6'2 isn't tall could it he they're exaggerating or has height really increased among men these days
Balrog said on 13/Mar/14
In those two pictures above it doesn't look more than 176 cm. Surely under 178.

Looks barely 5ft9 in the more recent pic but potentially looks a strong 5ft10 in the 2006 pic.

5ft10 and change, like 5ft10.25 or 5ft10.5 at night.
Stephen said on 8/Jan/13
177.7 at night guy with perfect posture.
Johnnyfive said on 11/Dec/12
I see 5'9.5
Aragorn 5'11 said on 23/Oct/12
Strong 5'10. I highly doubt he's more than that though. But, he can definitely look 5'11 in shoes.
someone said on 29/Aug/12
definitely 5 ft 10+
LG69 said on 12/Aug/12
If the footwear is equal, than he's 5'10" solid.
dmeyer said on 23/Nov/11
not over 177.5-178cm with rob
ChiasmataX said on 21/Nov/11
177cm in the pics. 178-179cm out of bed.
MrX said on 20/Nov/11
Solid 178cm barefoot...179cm in the morning; he can be 178,5-179 cm until 4 o'clock after good sleeping!
Alex said on 11/Aug/11
Looks like a weak 5'10. He looks 5'9 1/2 with Rob.
said on 3/Aug/11
Can't believe some people estimate 5"11-6" for this guy.
In the pics he stands at 5"9.75.
on 4400 he could look 5ft 11 range for sure, but anytime I seen him I thought he appeared nearer 5ft 10 than 11.
Chris175 said on 18/Jul/11
from photos i reckon closer to 5-11 rob? but you met the guy so i trust your judgement
Weissheumier said on 29/Jun/11
5'11 - 6' for sure like 1,81cm, I am 6' and he looks to have my height , maybe he can look 6,1 in shoes
stoodnext2 said on 22/Jun/11
I can see 5'11 and change out of bed, Strong 5'10 in the day. In shoes close enough to claim 6' (On camera a 5'10 guy "a legit barefoot at night 5'10 guy" can look 6' easily and play a leading man)

rob wasnt he listed as 5'10.5 before?I think he's bit over 5'10
said on 21/Apr/11
rob he must wear lifts on the show
[Editor Rob: he can look 5ft 11 on some shows.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Apr/11
179cm looks closer
Avi said on 3/Apr/11
Strong 5'10. Maybe half inch more
horacle said on 1/Apr/11
he looks 5'10.5 on V
James said on 22/Feb/11
He looks 177cm titlting his head down a bit. i think 5'10 is probably for this guy but no more.
Dean said on 2/Feb/11
His neck isnt totally straight...could be 179 straighter but then he has got thicker hair..no lower than 178 but could be more
jtm said on 3/Jan/11
kevin damon is actually 5'8.
MrX said on 1/Jan/11
Ali said on 1/Jul/09
5'10 is spot on
James said on 31/May/09
Mad Dog said on 6/Apr/09
I've always wondered how tall he was. I've read certain articles about him saying he was 6' but I was never quite convinced. I'd say 5'9"ish sounds about right. He does have tall hair...LOL
rob89 said on 7/Feb/09
He only looks 5'9ish here, 5'10 absolute max, that's the tallest he could be i think. No way is he 5'11, never looked it in The 4400 to me. He was only 3-4 inches taller than 5'6 Jacqueline McKenzie.
Davey said on 27/Jun/08
looks like a weak 5'10
Lego said on 27/Jun/08
i agree with TNTinCA, 5'9.5 to 5'10 tops.
Brah said on 26/Jun/08
Actually I always thought he looked average to slightly above height on The 4400.
"Richard Tyler" and "Jordan Collier" always towered over him.
TNTinCA said on 26/Jun/08
Not sure about the extra inch. Looks around 5'9.5" to 5'10" to me.
MD said on 26/Jun/08
That does not look like two-and-a-half inches in difference.
said on 26/Jun/08
It's odd. If you compare their eye levels in Rob's posting, Joel seems about an inch taller. If you compare their heads, Joel seems 2 inches taller. Am I missing something??
[Editor Rob: Sometimes people might have head down slightly or up slightly more or someone is slightly closer to camera. His hairline is probably between 1/3-1/2 inch more than eyeline but his hairstyle isn't as flat.
I thought the last time you were here you would have learned that it's easier just to stick to one name...it's easily done, please do it.]
said on 26/Jun/08
did he have a bad posture? Cos he looks less than 179cm in this picture.
err..btw Rob, am I seeing a sheet of paper stapled to your face?!
[Editor Rob: I do think he's in and around 179cm and has a bit looser stance than me.
I'm changing the block, instead of all white you now get 2 wee dots where my eyes are...at this rate I might be better just unblocking myself!]
Chris said on 26/Jun/08
Looks 5'9.5" here.
maximus said on 26/Jun/08
He looks 5'10" at best in this photo....he may wear lifts at times
said on 7/Aug/07
if you thaught he looked 5'10.5 whi do you give him 5'10.75
[Editor Rob: basically 5ft 10.5 is the best estimate, I just didn't change it.]
Editor Rob said on 29/Nov/06
I see Paddy got something right!
In fact, Joel strangely looked like he could be 5ft 10.5 to me in person when I met him...hmm, normal looking shoes he was wearing too.
