I've changed my mind on this guy. Think he's 6-4

@berta Boris Kodjoe and Schenkenberg look similar like 6'3.5".
berta said on 11/May/18
after looking at pics again i think his 194 claim is out of bed. and by the end of the day he is down to 192. around 193 at lunch. he could be a weak 6 foot 4 guy

hi rob in this swedish interview he says 194 cm. I think he can look a strong 193 guy that can be measured 194 before lunch
Editor Rob: I'll mention the profile giving the height/weight. It's a believable weight range for his height.

Rob, between 5'11 and 6'2 is where proportions look better and so does clothes. Very few guys over 6'3 look great in the runway and Marcus was one of them. There were models under 5'11that were upgraded in his comp card too.
Fashion is about looking right.
said on 16/Oct/15
Also, Rob Francisco Lachowski is listed as 6,2.5 on wiki but I think he is closer to 6,4. He is way taller than all the other models if you watch runway footage where he closes with the rest of them.
[Editor Rob: maybe if I saw him with a few more it would be clearer, but he didn't strike me as being 6ft 4.]
said on 9/Jan/15
Did you take a look Rob?!
[Editor Rob: not sure if he'd be in 6ft 3 zone, but 6ft 2.5 might be possible.]
Fern194cm-192cm said on 8/Jan/15
Rob can you look into model noah mills? He is listed at 6,2 or 6,2.5 for modelling but is at least 3 inches taller than ryan Hansen. Look at him in the clip in youtube when he cuts the line on 2 broke girls!
6'4 said on 6/Oct/14
I was standing beside him and I asked him.
Balrog said on 25/May/13
Yeah the model height range is 5'11'' - 6'2''.
said on 22/May/13
Agencies downgraded him to 6f3/6f2 to fit ideal model requirements of 6f-6f3.
[Editor Rob: I went through one agency and every guy was 185-188, only one model was down as 189cm, it's bizarre why some 6ft 3-6ft 4 models would be 'downgraded'.]
NB said on 12/Feb/13
He is 193/194 cm, when he started modelling he "reduced" his height on paper to become more attractive in the eyes of the proper male model height 188/189.
jonnie said on 12/Dec/12
6-3 or 6-4
Henrik said on 6/Jun/12
I dunno. He comes across as a legit 6'4" at times, on pictures when his torso looks long(er). On other pictures, his proportions look more like the ones of a 6'2" guy.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 3/Jan/12
Yeah he could be just 6'3 before bed! Maybe 6'3.25 but i dont think he would measure 193 before bed!
Nick said on 9/Nov/11
@ Shaun second one not really a good pic to judge..too much distance and different perspective, in my opinion..he might be 190cm though
ANDREA[ITA] said on 28/Oct/11
Phil that's what i thought! he's just a legit 6'3, no more! Rob what about downgrade him to 6'3 or 6'3.25?
Phil said on 26/Oct/11
I met Marcus in Stockholm in 2001 at Cafe Opera. I am 6'1/2 and he is a legit 6'3... He was wearing flat trainers so perhaps 6'4 in shoes/boots...
said on 9/Oct/11Click Here
Mmm you have to admit he does look 6'4" range here. Pamela Anderson must wear 5-6 inch heels.
said on 9/Oct/11
Rob look at this
Do you think Pamela Anderson would really ever reach 6'-6'1" in heels to look that tall in comparison if he is 6'4"?
said on 4/Oct/11
Rob are you sure hes so tall? He did an italian reality! He did look very tall of course but more like 190-191! Is it possible hes that height?
[Editor Rob: it's possible he's 191, I haven't looked for a few years at him.]
Sweden said on 19/Jun/11
If he were 6'2 agencies wouldnt mind his height and his height wouldnt be an issue. He looks like a legit strong 6'4'' guy.
said on 14/Feb/11Click Here
Does he really have the proportions of a legit 6'4" guy?
Shaun said on 14/Feb/11
Doesn't look 6'4". Looks about the same height as Tommy Lee (another of Pamela Anderson's exes) and looks similar facially to him. Looks 6'2"-6'3" to me, not 6'4".
gilipollas said on 11/Jun/09
anonymous, ur not into fashion, right? watch Oliver Cheshire top model in the runway and tell me what height are the rest of models.
anonymous said on 30/May/09
Actually perfect model height rounds around 6'2 - 6'4 nowdays.
RON said on 27/Jan/09
there are so may types of models. hes too tall for runway. hes good for print because of his whole body-face- . supermodel tyson beckford is 5-11 and he made a show this season for dsquared. most models were same size as him. also model oliver cheshire is 5-10 and works in every major runway show. height is notthat of a big deal. its more about the whole look what makes u a yes or a no.i met many male models and they all were 6-1 in their stats...but in real life they were all diferent sizes!
italian boy said on 10/Jan/09
i confirm he is 194cm,really tall even more than gabriel garko that is 190
Josh said on 23/Nov/08
He looks 6'3 with shoes on so hes a solid 6'2
Lorenzo said on 20/Nov/08
Excuseme for my english is bad, but i want to answer to Jhon P, and i say him that for me a lot of models are between 5,11 and 6,4. He said that a model is considered too tall if is 6,4 for me is wrong.
A lot of models and advertising man are more than 6,2 for example Jackman (sexyman in the world is 189-190 cm).
Nick said on 28/Aug/08
i recently went to an open call at an agency in NYC and the agent saw that i am 6'3''-6'4'' and the agent was fine with it. And i am 15 1/2. He just told me to get more cut and come back.
Ryan said on 28/Aug/08
he is 6'4''. It was just downgraded for modeling purposes.
Zana said on 27/Jul/08
He's either 6'3.5 or 6'4, since it is said that he has rounded down to 6'3 for his modeling career
Anonymous KinG said on 4/May/08
Hi Joe, Marcus is max at 193.. He can't be more than this 193.. Even 192 he could be this height only.. Unless you really stand near him to judge that his really more taller.. im not suspect you shorter than 192 makes marcus look taller than his peak.. Or maybe you had disadvantage shoe lift when you saw him in real..
Anonymous KinG said on 9/Apr/08
this handsome dude looks huge.. i agree with his height claim at 6ft4..
Charliemoto said on 4/Apr/08
IMO he's exactly 194cm
Joe said on 13/Nov/07
I am 192cm and Marcus is taller than me. i met him in italian tv studios.
So he should be 194-195.
JohnP said on 27/Oct/07
The only reason Schenkenberg gets ~6-2 listings, is because over 6-3 is generally considered "too tall" for a male model. The ideal for a male model is between 5-11 to 6-2, I think. He could very well be 6-4 or so, but his agency doesn't like listing him like that because it's "too tall".
It's the same thing with Hollywood actors, some actors actually downgrade their heights a little (as of right now, I can't think of anyone who does it, but still), over 6-3 is generally considered "too tall for showbiz". Although taller actors do get over with it, but they sometimes get downgraded.
saga said on 20/Oct/07
yes luca, i didn't watch that reality show ("The farm") but the TV show i was referring to was called "La Grande Notte", hosted by Gene Gnocchi and Simona Ventura.
I was shocked to see Marcus almost as tall as 6'5.5" Max Tortora.
Then a couple of weeks later i saw Marcus on another TV show ("Quelli che il calcio"), and he had to fight against Dolph Lundgren (it was a fake fight by the way).
Dolph was introduced by Simona Ventura at 195cm*105kg, whereas Marcus was described as 194cm, i don't remember the weight but i'm definitely sure on his height though.
Either way Marcus was as tall as Dolph, they wore the same boxing boots therefore no one had footwear advantage.
Rob 6'3.5 is inaccurate, i'm almost 6'3 and he looks noticeably taller than me compared to average people on stage, he towered over everyone.
Marcus looked like a solid 6'4 actually, if not his 6'4.5" (194cm) claimed.
luca said on 20/Oct/07
for saga:max tortora said to be 1,97 yeah.I saw him two times in rome.marcus took part in the italian reality "the farmer";he is 1,93.Surely.
Anonymous said on 20/Oct/07
in an italian tv(canale5) he said to be 1,93.He said that raz degan is a dwarf.

"HE was listed at 189cm by his modeling agency..."
No way!! Marcus is very tall, i've seen him several times on Italian TV..he looks huge and he mentioned more the once that he's 194cm (6'4.5").
I acknowledge that in the pics with Glenn he looks just 6'2-6'2.5 (he has a mega slouch though) but come on..189cm is ridiculous!!
Marcus looks way taller than me compared to other people, he dwarfed everyone in that TV Show.
He also looked about 1" inch shorter than Max Tortora (italian comedian and impersonator), who claims to be 197cm (6'5.5").
Max Tortora is a legit 6'5.5" as you can see from these short clips:Click HereClick Here
Furthermore, in that TV show, i saw Marcus face to face with Dolph Lundgren, who is 6'4.5 and they were exactly at the same height.
Just another clip where he looks taller than 6'4:Click Here
Rob this guy needs an upgrade, trust me..he's at the very least a solid 6'4.
Mattiew_^ said on 14/Oct/07
HE was listed at 189cm by his modeling agency ...
nicka said on 8/Oct/07
i don't care how tall he really is! the point is that he is REALLY tall and most importantly, i love him! he's so hot! he's the first and highest-paid-per-year male supermodel.
shikoku said on 27/Jun/07
i met him once when he was in holland im a solid 6'5 and he wasn't much smaller then me i would guess him at 6'4
JohnP said on 21/Jun/07
It's funny that he says on his official site that he is 6-3, then he converts it to 193 cm.
REds said on 14/Jun/07
The things are two or that guy can't be 192 or the others image with the tennis player Maret is not true , I mean theres the same difference between that 192 guy and Glenn than in the others 179.5 and 193 guy !!?
Josh said on 29/May/07
He looks 6'2.5 to 6'3. If hes 6'2.5 barefoot he can easily look 6'4 with what ever shoes or sandals or sneakers hes wearing.
Viper said on 2/May/07
He doesnt look 6-4 at all.
ChrisJameson said on 2/May/07
He's the only model who's height has to be downgraded coz he's really extremely tall... atleast 6'4.. more likely even 6'4.5... coz for male models the ideal height is 6'0 - 6'2... maximum is 6'3... but 6'0 - 6'2 would be the ideal height..
Anonymous said on 3/Mar/07
Hey, how much do sneakers add in height Glenn? An inch? Also he looks to be 6'4, and wearing boots?
AAAA said on 1/Mar/07
glenn... I meant boots. Sorry. Just typed it fast
J-Dog said on 1/Mar/07
Besides Glenn he looks way bigger than a 6'2" guy. Marcus is just tall. He is hunching massively in both pictures.
glenn said on 28/Feb/07
i dont wear sneakers much.casuals or boots.
asfasf said on 28/Feb/07
he got the same height of dolph lundgren or ever taller, i've seen them in a show programmed here in italy standing back to back they are quite the same althoug this guy looked a bit taller than ivan drago:P How tall is dolph for u? 188-190cm? c'mon lol
he's 6'4.5 or 6'5
AAAA said on 27/Feb/07
He seems to be slouching a bit in the new pic.
Frank.....Glen has said that he is 5'8 barefoot,but with sneakers 5'9.5-5'10
Frank said on 27/Feb/07
Looks about 6ft 2 too me.....He looks about 6 inches taller than Glenn
Glenn are you 5ft 8 barefoot ??? or 5ft 7ish
Viper said on 27/Feb/07
Looks 6-3ish in the pic. I dont think hes over 6-3 1/2.
Pete said on 12/Dec/06
edu, mark vanderloo is around 1.83 cm. Ive seen on stats he was 1.84 and some others he was 1.82
said on 4/Oct/06
On Marcus' official website he gives his height as 6'3" but I agree he looks much bigger than that. Click Here
Here he is by Naomi Campbell, I have no idea but can assume she is wearing heels, he still towers over here.Click Here
Nolifts81 said on 27/Sep/06
This guy is close to 6'5" or 6'4.5 at least. I've seen him here in Italy, he is huge!!! In an italian tv program he said that he is 194cm and he looks that height!
said on 8/Sep/06Click Here
Check out this pic Mark posted. If Pamela Anderson is really 5'6", Marcus is 6'4" or 6'5". He's at least ten inches taller than her, and they're both wearing sandals and they have a similar posture.
He deserves an upgrade.
raj said on 24/Apr/06
on his stats it says hes 6-2, the same as the 5-11 tyson beckford. so 6-2 is the cool height for modelling.
J-Dog said on 20/Apr/06
Good Legitimate upgrade Rob.
ER. said on 19/Apr/06
I think he is 193-194 CM. He just looks taller than 6'2", and also more than 190CM.
Nolifts81 said on 18/Apr/06
Marcus is 6'4"+. In this time he is here in Italy for partecipate at a reality show called"La Fattoria". He has said that he is 194cm.
J-Dog said on 9/Apr/06
I think Marcus may qualify for a slight upgrade, 193cm seems very possible, especially if you guys have watched The Surreal Life. Viper not sure why you find it so hard to believe? Glenn what was your opinion on his height whe you met him?
[Editor Rob: glenn mentioned on his page a while ago he might be near 6ft 4...]
Tom said on 9/Apr/06
I'm signed with his modeling agency, and I talked to the owner about his height because I met him at a club and he towered over me. The boss told me that everyone knows that he's around 6'4", and his listed height of 6'2" is just the ideal model height.
edu said on 8/Apr/06
what is the height of mark vanderloo ? please answer , thanks
Viper652 said on 14/Feb/06
Also for what its worth, IMDB has him at 6-2 1/2. And they usually never underrate heights.
Viper652 said on 13/Feb/06
Well, Ive seen a pic of Marcus with 5-11 Tyson Beckford on wireimgae where he looks 6-2 to 6-3 there. Its possible he is 6-3, but 6-4 is a big stretch.
adsfdw said on 12/Feb/06
he is not the 6-2 his stats say. hes a bit too tall for modelling at his 6-4.
ive seen both marcus and tyson beckford (both 6-2) and marcus was about 5 inches taller! this is very usual when it comes to modelling. anyways he still looks great
Glenn said on 11/Feb/06
could be 6-4.
cris said on 25/Nov/05
Marcus is really around 6'3-4ish... they just downgraded his height to the ideal height of 6'2" for modelling...
CoolJ said on 18/Oct/05
Mark, Yeah.. he has about a foot on her in that picture. Someone is lying.
Mark said on 11/Oct/05
I mean, look at that pic. If Pamela is really 5'6", he is well over 191cm. He looks like a giant next to her!
Mark said on 11/Oct/05
He looks huge. But since he's a model, I'd say he couldn't be more than 6' 2", although his official site states that he's 193cm, which ios almost 6'4".
Viper652 said on 26/Sep/05
Marcus saying hes 6-4 is pretty funny. Hes never looked that tall in his life.
Anonymous said on 26/Sep/05
In an Swedish interview he said that he was 194 cm wich all Swedish sources points to.
Schenkenberg is at least 6ft4in
Hans said on 26/Sep/05
I´m a swedish model too and worked with him. I´m an inch taller. 6 ft 3. Marcus is in fact 6 ft 2
Viper652 said on 25/Sep/05
I beleive hes 6-2. He wouldnt have a big modeling contract and career If he was well over that.
Hani said on 24/Sep/05
I think he i 193cm and maybe even 194cm he is real a big guy.
said on 24/Sep/05
Wasn't he German?
Ive read various claimings for him too:188, 190 y 193.
I think he's near 190, but never saw reliable pics to swear it[Editor Rob: link 1 and 2. Ok, those were the ones showing biggest difference ;0]
