5'10" first thing in the morning on a good day with that hair.

He never looked anywhere near 5'10" on Stargate Atlantis. He was noticeably shorter than David Hewlett on the show, who is closer to 5'10" than he is.

5'10" with 2" shoes on. He's 5'8".

You look basically identical... 174 not impossible, but 5ft8.25 would be better.
lelman said on 26/Aug/13
5'8", probably 5'10" out of bed on a good day with some nice shoes.

Ok, on the first pic, he is the same height as rob, forget the hairs! On the second it seems like his shoulders are higher, but thats maybe the jacket.
Hullywood 1.75.5m said on 9/Nov/12
Yeah, maybe a cm taller then rob.
ChiasmataX said on 21/Nov/11
Yep 1 cm shorter base on posture/eye-level/ear-level. Not 174cm but 172cm guy.
Physics Enemy said on 7/Nov/11
He's 1 cm shorter than Rob. 172 cm evening height. Never 174 cm. 173 cm early in the day.
Shaun said on 20/Jul/11
5'10" out of bed including the hair maybe.

Definitely doesn't look any taller than Rob. If anything he's slightly shorter, of course given that you don't count his hair as part of his height!
Legend said on 2/Apr/11
lol in the first pic if you look at it peripherally it looks like he's flipping Rob off.
ka said on 8/Mar/11
Rob if this guy is 174 cm, it's only fair that you're also 174. Both pic show it, the man and you are dead on same height. Paul only has more hair than you.
Dean said on 31/Jan/11
solid hair gives him 1-2cm. I never go on levels..but he has the same chin level, same mouth level, same nose level, same eye level, same size forehead, same hair level..before he has taller hair...he is bang on your height..a strong 5'8 wishing to be a 5'10 guy.
lolo said on 26/Nov/10
do you wear converse on those pic rob? if yes hes definitely not over your height

Editor Rob
I was wearing around an inch sneaker that weekend, he had 0.9 inch samoa one day, then a 1.1-1.2 inch shoe the next day
Samwise said on 7/Nov/10
Looks 5ft 8 on a 'bad' day.
Grace said on 16/Dec/08
He looks about 5'9 or so and I love his charater off Stargate Atlantis. Love the accent as well. I have to say Paul looks the same height as David Hewlett and he's about 5'10.
MD said on 28/May/08
lol! @ Scotty. You've got a dry sense of humor, my friend.
Charliemoto said on 27/May/08
looks 5'9 to me

Editor Rob
guy has large hair, he asked me how the scottish accent was...I said it was the best scottish accent since Scotty.
MD said on 22/May/08

He looks no more than 5'8.25" to me, Rob. I'd say almost your exact same height, really.
Joe said on 22/May/08
Scotland is part of the UK, you tool.
norriski said on 23/Mar/08
Comment is not about height but about where Mr. McGillion was bone. He wasn't born in the UK but in Scotland then moved with his family to Canada when he was about 2.
horacle said on 11/Dec/06
he is 5'9 at max

Editor Rob
Flanigan is bang on 5ft 11.75, got a near perfect photo with him where he appears this mark...seen that guy twice. Mcgilly, yeah, possibly less...
