Here he is with Mario Lopez, who you have listed at 5'9", but maybe more 5'8"ish:
Mark-Paul also has a footwear advantage. I was kind of surprised by the shot; they are on level ground.
He could arguably look a weak 5ft 11 with Mario...though I don't think Lopez is shorter than 5ft 9.

more like 5'11.5" imo, but he looks like he grew 1-2cm after SBTB ended to me.
Never looked above 5'11 during that time, and looked around 176 at the beginning of this show, but saw him years laters in other movies/telefilms and was surprised to see him look a weak 6'.
I'd say 182 is where's probably at nowadays.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Aug/18
I think he's a decent 5ft11 guy and can pull off 181cm at times.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/18
5'11 seem legit. I wouldn't go under 180cm. But he make Breckin Meyer look 164-ish.
Canson said on 13/Oct/17
His Height isn’t easy to pin down. He isn’t much taller than Elizabeth Berkeley either and can look max 1.5” or 2” on Lopez at times. They aren’t as far apart as you may think
Shredder said on 12/Oct/17
Don't know his height claim , but he said recently he got over gained over 20 lbs for a role and is over 200 lbs
Rising - 174 cm
said on 4/Oct/17
The height difference with Lopez can vary. Sometimes it's 2" max or less, but MPG does look around 5'11" here with a 5'8.5" Lopez: Click Here
And although one should always be skeptical of beach pics due to the ground, here as well: Click Here
I'm as sure as I could be Lopez is 5'8.5" short of meeting or measuring him, but MPG? Not so sure.
Canson said on 26/Sep/17
If Lopez is 5'8.5 he's not more than 5'10 range
5'11.25 at noon. said on 14/Aug/17
I think mark is just a shade over 5'11.
5'11.25 suits him best as he is at least 1.5 inches taller than Mario.
Canson said on 1/Mar/17
I remember Tiffani amber thiessen when she was interviewed once she mentioned when they had cardboard cutouts of all three (including Diamond) she said why did you make Lopez shorter? He's really not. Meaning they are likely an inch apart tops
said on 1/Mar/17
Rob do you think he might be six foot one because on his I.D. it says 6'1 on dead man on campus
Editor Rob: Joseph, he never really looked that tall.
James B said on 22/Feb/17
He could look under 5'11 with Tom Everett Scott unless Tom is over 6'2?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/17
No way under 5ft11
said on 20/Feb/17
Rob could 5'10.5 be a possbility?
Editor Rob: James, I can't see him being that short....
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jul/16
...and Franklin & Bash
Johno said on 13/May/16
Edges Fallon, 5'11 looks about right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/May/16
He does look at least 6ft beside Kilborn
said on 26/Apr/16
He can't be under 6 feet if he is this close in height to 6'5'' Craig Kilborn. Watch the below link from 1:28 - 1:32.
Anything below 6 feet for Mark-Paul is ViperTalk.
Jordi148 said on 17/Apr/16
I met him the other day, and I have to say, he looks 5'11" although he could pass for being 6'
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/16
He was a pretty good player...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Feb/16
Golic has a clear 3in on MPG and I actually think the latter could still be a fraction over 5ft11.
said on 28/Feb/16
I think 189cm could be spot on for him. Could look either 6ft2 or 6ft3. Like Terry Crews.
Rob, is he worth adding?
Editor Rob: another on the maybe pile I suppose.
said on 28/Feb/16
So Rob, are you saying 6ft3 is even possible for him?
Editor Rob: just mentioning his college height, but then sometimes college profiles tended to be positive/round up. He could look a bit over 6ft 2
ted said on 27/Feb/16
He looks same height or at most half inch shorter than tom arnold on franklin and bash.
said on 25/Feb/16
Rob, do you have any guesses for this guy Bob Golic?
He was listed 6ft2 in his NFL career.
Editor Rob: at Notre Dame he was down as 6ft 3, he can look pretty big back in that College Years show.
Lorne??? said on 29/Nov/15
Doesn't look over 5'11 on NYPD Blue, not at all.
MD said on 14/Oct/15
This came out of nowhere, but I had a lazy weekend recently, and they replayed an episode of Law & Order: SVU he appeared in. He was very clearly a good inch shorter than Christopher Meloni; it may have even been slightly more. So, yeah, not over the current listing.
said on 29/Aug/15
5'11'' is too low. James Van Der Beek has been listed at both 6' and 6'1'', and Mark-Paul Gosselaar is the same height as him:
Mark-Paul has to be at least 6 feet tall.
Spencer said on 18/Jun/15
said on 5/Feb/15Click Here
Looking like a strong 5'11 with Fallon here, could be slightly over it but to me it looks like Fallon edges him out.
said on 30/Sep/14
Rob , what did he look in the first season of saved by the bell
[Editor Rob: coulda been 5ft 3-4 range]
mr. realityortruth said on 19/Jul/14
hey. mr. killer shrimp, i thought u had gosselaar at 5-9.5 and lopez at 5-8. i've seen a lot of pics for these 2, and i think gosselaar is 5-10, while lopez is 5-8 max.
James said on 7/Jan/14
This is much more accurate giving how much taller Tom Everett Scott looked than him.
Tom could be a little over 6'2?
dan said on 14/Aug/13
He looks mighty fine in a uniform and much svelter than your average boy in blue. Visually, he looks a solid 180cm. He has a great jaw.
Lorne??? said on 13/Aug/13
5'11.5 might have been better. He just looks more than a flat 5'11, like solid 181cm. I never thought he was 6ft, but can look close to the mark.bet you'll upgrade him to 5ft11.25 eventually.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/13
5ft11 flat is too low. He can look 6ft
Arch Stanton said on 12/Aug/13
Yeah I think 6'2" barefoot is a little high but she doesn't look too far off it, she looks at least 6'1 in that photo of them in sneakers and can look two inches taller than him. But in other photos she barely seems taller. I think she's definitely minimum 6ft anyway. She's like the stereotypical leggy Californian blonde isn't she.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Aug/13
Rob how tall does his wife look to you?
said on 9/Aug/13Click Here
Both in sneakers here, she's definitely not under 6 ft I think, not sure she is quite as tall as 6'2" though in some pictures she looks strangely look closer in height. Proportionally she does look near 6'2 to me though.
said on 9/Aug/13Click Here
Those heels aren't too big, she looks close to 6'2" to me but in some photos seems more 6-6'1. Maybe 6'1" would be more accurate for her?
Edlt2882 said on 23/Jul/13
I walk passed this guy, and I could have sworn he was a solid 6'0". I would have thought 5'11.5" at the shortest.
cole said on 16/Jul/13
He needed a solid downgrade, so that's good, but I still think he can look 5'10-5'10.5 range as well. A quick look at him next to 6'ish James Van der Beek shows that Mark is noticably shorter.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/13
He was 0.5-1in shorter than Reed Diamond in Franklin & Bash.
said on 17/Jun/13
Rob, you have a photo with Reed Diamond, clearly showing he's 6'0.5. Gosselaar is absolutely not 5'11.5. He is in a serious need for a solid downgrade. 5'10, 5'10.5 tops.
Also with James Van der Beek, who's a solid 182-183 cm, he looks nowhere near as tall.
[Editor Rob: he can definitely look no more than 5ft 11 although that pavement slopes a bit.]
Floppy said on 13/Apr/13
In the film "Dead Man on Campus (1998)", Tom Everett Scott is 1.88cm, +-10cm more that Mark Paul, Mark is +-1.78cm.
AD said on 6/Oct/12
Seem to be accurate at 182 I'm telling you.
based on the evidence seen on saved by the bell.
said on 26/Aug/12
Rob, what made you downgrade him to 5'11" and a half? Didn't you have this guy at 6'0" even?
[Editor Rob: i just think it's closer for him]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Aug/12
Rob, I think you originally had this guy nailed at 6ft. I came across a couple of episodes of SBTB the other night. It was one of the later seasons. Standing next to 5ft9.5 (possibly 5ft10) Elizabeth Berkeley he definitely had at 2-3in on her. Likewise with Lopez. This is when he's standing up straight which he rarely does.
I think Dustin Diamond eventually grew slightly taller than Mark and is a little over 6ft.
CL said on 7/Feb/12
he used to get his dirt bikes serviced the same shop as me. saw him on several occasions. looked a strong 5'11"...wouldn't doubt 6'.
Mr. R said on 14/Jan/12
Thank You KS
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 12/Jan/12
Yes Mr. R, I believe your eyewitness accounts. There is loads of photographic evidence on the internet that proves Mario Lopez is 5'8" range like you say!
Mr. R said on 12/Jan/12
I've been telling you all for years that Mario is between 5-8 and 5-9, which does lower Mark Paul and others seen in pics with him. denizen and Killer shrimp, Do you believe?
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 12/Jan/12
I believe denizen. Gosselaar is sub 5'10", 6'0" for this guy is crazy.
denizen said on 11/Jan/12
I agree with Killer Shrimp. I saw Mario Lopez filming yesterday and stood next to him for estimation. Mark looks only about an inch or two bigger.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 6/Jan/12
Actually, Mario Lopez is 5'8" MAX, the pictures of him with 5'7"/5'8" range people on his page have proven that.
This in turn means that Gosselaar is around 5'9.5" at the absolute MAX, which makes this 6'0" listing even more insane.
5'9.5" (176.5cm) MAX for Gosselaar.
said on 25/Dec/11
This listing is insane. I'm not buying anything over 5'10.5" barefoot for this guy. Take a look at Gosselaar and 5'9" (175cm) Mario Lopez:
There's less than 2 inches between them. He never looked much taller than Lopez on Saved By The Bell either and they are the same age:
Gosselaar is nowhere near 6 foot, 5'10.5" (179cm) at the absolute MAX for him.
said on 10/Oct/11
Rob ,You guessed 140's in s1 and 175 in s5 ... what would you guess his weight in this vid ? ... Click Here
[Editor Rob: still looks a bit skinnier than the college year, maybe 160'ish]
said on 29/Sep/11
Rob , maybe thats too big , but what would you guess around that , 175 lbs ?
[Editor Rob: possibly that's nearer the mark yeah]
said on 26/Sep/11
Rob , what would you guess his weight for this ... 200 ?
[Editor Rob: under 200 I'm pretty sure]
said on 25/Sep/11
Rob , do you think Mark could have been just 5'7 ?
[Editor Rob: possibly 5ft 7-7.5]
said on 24/Sep/11
Rob , what would you guess Mark Height around that time ... Mario looked 5'8 next to the 6'1 Mr.Belden
[Editor Rob: he looked near mario range aswell]
said on 22/Sep/11
Rob , what would You guess Him and Mario's Weight around this video ? ... Go to 2:07 ! ...
[Editor Rob: probably mark 140's and mario 25-30 heavier ]
yvonne said on 27/Jul/11
looks right at 6'ft
AD said on 26/Jul/11
There was a scene in 'Wedding in Vegas' where they have mug shots taken ...the top of Mark Paul's head comes exactly to the 6ft mark on the chart which would make him 5'11" or a little over barefoot, Mario Lopez (taking into account his bigger hair) comes to the 5'10.5" mark which would make him round about 5'9.5" barefoot which sounds about right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/11
Mark Paul never looked more than 1.5-2in taller than Mario Lopez who some think may struggle to reach 5ft9
Jay said on 21/Jun/11
I'd say over 5'11.
James said on 15/Feb/11
Looked a 5'10 guy to me in later seasons of savd by the bell. looked a lot more than 1 inch shorter than 6'1 mr Belding.
Spence said on 5/Feb/11
In SBTB Dennis Haskins looks 2 inches taller about and hes 6'1..he looked 2 inches taller than Mario Lopez...so I think 181 182
Antonio said on 10/Jun/09
I saw the show too.
If Gosselaar is 6' then so is Fallon!
anon said on 9/Jun/09
I saw him on late night and he looked to be the exact height as Jimmy Fallon who is 5' 10".
Rock said on 1/Jun/09
He had to be a late bloomer because in Saved By The Bell where the kids are 16, he is shorter than Elizabeth Berkley and only looks a few inches taller than 5'3" Lark Voorhies and 5'5" Tiffany Amber Thiessen. Nowadays 5'11" does look accurate though.
jessica said on 30/May/09
Guinnage: he was never in Jurassic Park, and second, driver's licenses don't put in .5's.
James said on 1/May/09
Gosselaar no taller than 5'5??? hahahaha
He does look around the 6 foot mark. Nothing below 5'11 that's for sure.
Anonymous said on 16/Apr/09
MPG is clearly no taller than 5'5" tall. You can se the lifts he's wearing lifts in season 2 of SBTB.
Anon said on 25/Mar/09
Has anyone seen Dead Man On Campus? Mark-Paul stands face to face next to Jason Segel (who plays one of his roommates along with Tom Everett Scott) and the height difference is at most two inches. Jason Segel is 6'4'' but I'm wondering if he was still growing at the time, as he was between the ages of 17-18 when that movie was made.
Olivia said on 5/Jan/09
He's a good 6 ft without hesitation !
Seano said on 19/Dec/08
He is 5'11'' tops even if that anything above that is ludacris
Maxwell said on 19/Nov/08
Hm... I think Mark-Paul looks 5'11 in 'Raising the Bar.'
said on 30/Aug/08
Does that make Mark 6'0-6'1 ? Im Shocked , he really only looked 5'10 in season 3 and 4 of Saved by the Bell ! Btw , do you agree that he was about 5'7 in season 1 ? That video I posted about a year ago where he looked around berkley's height was from like season 2 but i Thought it was season 1 for some reason !
[Editor Rob: maybe when you see that show you could get a better idea when J and Mark are together...]
said on 30/Aug/08
Rob , I think you are right ! I think he is around 6'0 from this pic with this 6'3 that you met ! ... Looks 6'0 here for sure ! Click Here
[Editor Rob: a few tall guys in that cast, J is a 6ft 3 guy.]
the shredder said on 7/Aug/08
Rob , why do you keep him at 6'0 ? He is clearly not over 5'11 ! ...
said on 20/Jul/08
Rob , do you think he can be as short as 5'10 - 5'10.5 ? ... Look at him next to the 6'2 guy ! Click HereClick Here

Rob , how tall do you think he was in the first season of Saved by the bell ? ... I can't see him pasted 5'8 in the first season ! ... Click Here
mark said on 3/May/08
no way 6'
MattC said on 7/Apr/08
Its hard to judge him going by what he looked like on Saved by the bell cause he stopped doing the show when he was 18.(he was 19 in Saved by the bell "the college years") He very easily could have added an inch or so since the end of that show. Personally I think he is a legit 6'. Maybe 5'11.5 at the very least.
Mattiew_- said on 21/Dec/07
Gosselaar was billed being 178 in some old French magazine ...
I remember that because I was surprised .
Sureshot said on 10/Dec/07
Gosselaar is not 6'. 5' 10" - 5' 10.5 maybe. i'm 6' 3" and have many 6'friends. met him with a 6' friend and he was still 1-2 in. shorter.
said on 20/Aug/07
Rob , you also forgot Mr. Belding . Ive seen him listed at 6'1 before . What is your take on him ?
[Editor Rob: I think someone one time posted some link to myspace with a guy standing beside balding and he was 6ft 1.]
said on 19/Aug/07
Rob , what 5'8.5 then ? .. Whould that fit " FOR THAT TIME " .. lol yes , the Berkley character was more annoying then Screech . Zach REALLY was by far the coolest SBTB character , which is why I use to love the show ! .. btw , Lisa was hot ! .. How tall is she ? 5'2-3 ?
[Editor Rob: more around that, screech was just a human version of scooby doo. All three were hot and Turtle I totally forgot about, if I added her it'd be more 5ft 2-2.5.]
said on 19/Aug/07
Rob , how tall do you think this guy was doing the begining of Saved by the Bell ? ... Here is a video of him next to Mario who you have listed at 5'9 .. go to 1:10-ish on the video .. what do you say ? About 5'7 ?
[Editor Rob: nah, he doesn't look that short, the berkley girl looked pretty near her final height there, and he wasn't that much short. I'd forgotten how annoying that berkley character was.]
Guinnage said on 26/Jul/07
Mark Paul gosselaar is exactly my height according to his Cali driver's license, which puts him at 5'10.5" .
Done and Done, they make him seem shorter in Jurassic Park cause they didn't want the Raptor looking too small.
shikoku said on 27/Jun/07
i met him once on somesort of fanday and i spoke to him in dutch he looked a bit shorter then my dad so i think hes about 6'1,5
patrick said on 23/Apr/07
Sorry, i agree with Spence for, in 2000 SUV episode, either he is 5'11 and Chris Meloni 6' 0.75 or this one is 6'1.5 and Gosselar is 6' and yet...Chris Meloni LOOKS MUCH TALLER THAN HIM IN AN EPISODE OF SUV! M.P. Gosselaar looked far below 6' and anybody can check it out; I don't know why they would have tried to get him smaller!No logical reason!
In NYPD Blue, everybody is small but Henry Simmons who appears as a giant because of that!
Spence said on 16/Apr/07
I think hes a solid 5'11 I dont think hes a full 6'0. Also Mr. Belding who is supposetdly 6'1 looks 2 inches taller. He looks maybe 2 inches taller than Mario Lopez who is like 5'9 1/2 maybe 5'10.
venus said on 11/Nov/06
John Doe, I agree with you Tom wears big boots thru most of the film, I doubt he's 6'2. I don't remember Mark wearing big boots at all in the movie, he was wearing penny loafer like shoes most of the time, anyway I give him 6'0.
cynthia said on 11/Nov/06
Love Mark Paul, but I doubt if he's 6 feet, I have to give him 5'11 the most.
John Doe said on 19/Sep/06
In his film Dead Man on Campus he gives a bartender a fake i.d. and it shows a closeup. If you pause it (or if you just have fast eyes) you can see it says 6-1. He could very well be, Tom (his six two co-star) wears big boots through most of film. Mark looks about two inches shorter, but im not sure if his shoes are just smaller then Scott's.
said on 2/Sep/06
Six feet seems about right to me. Check this out. Tom isn't more than 2 inches taller than Mark-PaulClick Here
Here's is a younger Mark-Paul still looking taller than 5'10'' Elizabeth Berkeley even with his head bentClick Here
Height Tracker said on 7/Aug/06
I agree that Mark Paul looks smaller than 6'0" next to Tom Everett Scott. However, I believe the height difference is more around 3", making Mark Paul about 5'11".
Justin said on 25/Jul/06
I just watched Dead Man on Campus and there's no way that Mark Paul Gosselaar is 6'0" because Tom Everett Scott (listed as 6'2") TOWERS over him. Either Mark is around 5'9" or so or Tom Everett Scott is about 6'6".
Optimistic said on 10/Jan/06
No way he is just 5-9
Mr. R said on 3/Jun/05
However Perculiar, Mark Paul was listed at this height during Saved By The Bell. I don't know whether he was a teen then, as they use older actors to play teens. But I can tell you that I met Mario Lopez and he is nowhere near the 5-11 they claimed him to be either then or now.
Perculiar said on 2/Jun/05
Bear in mind that the Saved By The Bell photos will have been taken when Mark-paul was a teenager and not at full adult height. Also, while his father is Dutch, his mother is Indonesian, and certianly not tall.
Smoke said on 15/Apr/05
I doubt Tom even makes the cut line for average height of a Japanese male, I'm sure that even the average male in Japan is taller than 5'7" nowadays. But yes, the Dinka tribe has produced both Manute Bol and Luol Deng (NBA players) and Tom Cruise would blend in quite well with them. ;)
[Editor Rob: Tom's posture is already at max, but here's hope for all those actors on 5ft something and a half who might want to truly reach that magical next mark...Clive Robertson, Sunset Beach Actor once said: "I’m 6-foot. Actually, I grew. It’s quite funny. I was actually 5-foot-11 and three-eighths for many years, and then I went to drama school and did this thing called Alexander Technique, which is a relaxation technique. I grew three-quarters of an inch, which made me 6-foot and an eighth. But I look taller, I’m told – I look about 6-foot-1."]
Issheuhboy said on 14/Apr/05
Of course, when we talk heights, we're talking nations - which is a lot more globally-orientated. After a little research, there's some great stuff out there about tribes in Africa like the Dinkas, whose average male height is about 6'8" (2.03m). I wonder if Tom Cruise would like to do a film with them, instead of the Japanese?
Smoke said on 1/Apr/05
Okay...it's 184 cm then, which doesn't change the fact that these people are very tall!
Living Shoe Lift said on 1/Apr/05
Actually, the average height of Dutch men nowadays is 184 cm.
Smoke said on 28/Mar/05
Now I definately agree that Mark is a solid 6 footer, but on Saved By The Bell a full grown Mark was dwarfed by (listed at 6'1") Dennis Haskins. Now something doesn't match here, and I think that Haskins definately is shortchanged at 6'1". But again, Gosselaar looks easily 2 inches taller than (supposedly 5'10") Elizabeth Berkley and easily an inch taller than (generously listed at 5'11") Mario Lopez. Here's a pic of Mark looking about 2 inches taller than Dennis Franz who is listed at 5'10". May I also add that Gosselaar's parents are Dutch, and Dutchmen today average an astonishing average height of 6'0" (183 cm).
