I'm from the Chicago area music scene. I'm about 5'6 to 5'6.5, I met these guys very briefly in 2003 and can say all of them were shorter like me. Wentz was right around my height, maybe a tad shorter.

This listing is pretty accurate.

Can't see him at a full 5'6

Click Here If Pete is 5 ft 6, then where would you put Ryan Ross (the guy next to him in the photo)?
Editor Rob
Although the link didn't work, I think Ross can 3 inches taller.

Katy Perry seems to have the most convincing listing, even though she is nearer the camera!

Jeff I would hardly call being 3 inches taller than him towering him. He looks five six. If he was shorter then joss stone would be under five ten which is unlikely
Jeff said on 16/Jan/18
I actually saw Pete in person, walked right next to him and ashley simpson about 10 years ago in Laguna Beach.

He is tiny. 5’5 MAX. I’m 5’8 with shoes and I was towering over him. He was wearing vans slip on. Nothing against the guy, but there is absolutely no way he is 5’6. I’m very happy for him and his success.

His wife is 5'10. It's a good thing she doesn't have an immature mentality regarding male height (like you and the majority of females). I'm barely 5'7 and all my gfs have been in the 5'7 -5'11 range deal. Big deal.
Lee168cm said on 2/Aug/17
Would Katy perry be about 5'11 in the above photo rob?
Editor Rob: I'm sure she'd measure very close to that mark.
Lee168cm said on 23/Jun/17
You should add that he claimed 5'7 and a half in a below video
$rich_biatch$ said on 11/Jun/17
to be fair, these ladies are giants (with heels on)
RandomPerson234 said on 17/Nov/16
He's 5'6, exactly.
He's a 5'6 37 year old, with two kids.
Bronx Mowgli Wentz (7, 8 on the 20th of November 2016)
Saint Lazslo Wentz (2, 3 on the 21st of August.)
He is currently dating Meagan Camper, who is Saints biological mother.
Although you were wondering how tall Pete Lewis Kingston Wentz IIIs height I decided to add in a few more details.
His favorite colours are apparently Red And Black, his favorite food is macaroni and cheese(he says it all the time.)

I am a dedicated fan of Fall Out Boy, trust me when I say Pete Wentz is 5'6.

hes making 5'6ers look short! so mad
eoe said on 17/Oct/16
rob I think there's enough evidence to put him below 5'6... wouldn't you agree?
Editor Rob: not as sure on it.
Shredder said on 4/Sep/16
He clearly isn't anywhere near that , but he isn't the 5'5 people are claiming.
mjkzero said on 23/Feb/16
claims 5`7 or `5`7 and a half at the 10 second mark here Click Here

He could be 5'5.5

Is this really only three inches? With this and the picture of Ludacris, maybe it's time to list him at a more accurate height?

Being short makes you better
Dan said on 25/Oct/15
I'm more incline to say around 5'5"-5'5.5", judging from pictures I've seen of him with other musicians/celebs. Albeit I can't see the footwear in most of those pictures, I highly doubt he's always wearing the smaller footwear.
Bishop said on 16/Mar/15
Not the full 5'6"

This is the Pete Wentz page. Go comment on the Katy Perry page if you want to make a claim that you met her. And she is not any taller than what she's listed as.
Tyler said on 2/Feb/15
I met Katy Perry in a cab line on Las Vegas and the first thing I noticed was her height. I'm a 5-5 man and she was wearing some huge heels, 6 inch range, and she was about a foot taller than me. My friend who was with me is 5-10, and she guessed Katy was about the same or similar evern taller. This is way more than her listed 5-8.
Roses said on 11/Oct/14
I have seen him in real life before and 5'6" would be the very upper end of his height. He was with Ashlee Simpson at the time and she was at most 5'3" and he was a little taller than her but not much.
Joe said on 26/Jul/14
Looks about 2 inches shorter than his Chicago fella Kanye West who is listed at 5'8".
lee said on 19/Jul/14
he doesn't look 4 inches shorter than joss stone here. maybe he is about 5'7"
mjd said on 7/Apr/14
BriBri. You sound dumb. How tall someone is is irrelevant. You can't even justify to yourself, or to others, why it should matter. I'm sorry that it bothers you so much, but really, there's nothing much there.

I hope the future has more tall girl - shorter guy relationships so this ridiculous, stereotyped idea that men should be taller than women, as if we need to remind ourselves of ancient primate behaviors that developed by evolutionary processes that made "the larger male" the more attractive one (because they would provide safety). Likewise, the female with the best hip to waist ratio appeared more attractive to males. These tendencies of thought "I'm attracted to guys taller than me" or "girls with attractive hip-to waist ratios" is something which simply lacks social relevance in our day and age. We have become too enlightened to ourselves - we know ourselves too well, to let this be a determinative factor in who we choose as a partner.

Is human to be unconsciously attracted to tall men or women with nice hip/waist ratios? Yes. Is it ok to demean and degrade and mock and make fun, or ostracize or treat as strange people who don't meet that standard? Mind you, "tall" only exists as a concept because"short" exists. If 6'4 became normal height, 6'0 would be the new 5'6.

Pete's a good looking guy. 3.5 inches shorter than average american male height. Big frickin deal. His head rises three quarter lengths less than the average guy. It's almost hilarious, when you think about it, that we let things as stupid and ridiculous as this disturb our social harmony.
BriBri said on 6/Mar/14
Today, I found out my idol, who is old enough to be my father, is my height. I'm and eleven year old girl .-.

Earlier I was telling my father Patrick and Pete are about my height and he started yelling out "You like short people!" all day long. :/
Samuel said on 19/Dec/13
165-166 cm? 5'5".
Emily said on 29/Nov/13
He looks around 5'2, 5'8 in shoes. no more than that
MD said on 27/Nov/13
He's simply not a full 5'6". Here he is with Ray J, who is nothing over 5'7", himself, and who is leaning, to boot:

Click Here

With a listed 5'7.5" (I hold he's a flat 5'7", though) Big Sean, though, admittedly, Sean's getting an advantage here by pushing down:

Click Here

Still, that's more than an inch/inch-and-a-half.

I think you could easily argue he's 5'5", but I'd even be content with a 5'5.5" listing. 5'6", however, is just completely out of the question. He's honestly not that much taller than Patrick Stump.
Keith said on 26/Nov/13
No-no, he is 169 cm. I'm 168, so he's still taller than me D:

I went to the Toronto fall out boy show last night and got to high five him, he's basically my height, if not shorter and im 5'4.5 or 5'5 (I've grown since last time I've checked so idk)

You'll probably need to shave off at least half-an-inch, here. I think the band is shorter than advertised.
no way he is 5'6'' said on 5/Mar/13
saw him yesterday in Sherman Oaks. 5'1 - 5'3, tops.
leonari said on 17/Jul/11
Think this is off.... Looks a weak 5'6".
5'8 said on 28/Jan/11
He's 5'5, he looked like a kid next to 6'4 Michael Phelps, who had at least 11" on him, maybe even a foot.
Lmeister said on 18/Jun/09
Actually he we have to remember that he is probably wearing shoes. Based on photos that I've seen I'd say he is rather close to 5ft5 not much taller, but not shorter.
leonari said on 16/Jun/09
An inch too high Rob

"Davidoff says on 3/Oct/08
He doesnt look tall on tv...He doesnt even look like a man..."

Because people get to choose their height...
leisha said on 15/Mar/09
He is a solid 5'5. In a recent interview he said he likes to keep his weight at 135, but with stress from the pregnancy he gained 10 lbs (****) and he topped out at 148- which gives him fat face. If you look at an ideal weight calculator all these weights fall into that range without putting him into the fat zone. And someone who is obsessed with there appearance as much as pete wentz would never go into the fat zone.
Kael said on 21/Feb/09
I met this guy Im 5'8(WITHOUT SHOES) but i notice that he was wearing Nike Air Forces those shoes will add a solid 2 inches on everyone that wears them so he is 5'4 or 5'3.5
Brent said on 4/Jan/09
5'6 is correct, 5'5.5 at night
king kong bundy said on 2/Jan/09
glenn looks atleast 2 inches taller, and hes admitted 5-8 to be his morning height. realisticaally, as glenn has him by ATLEAST two inches, and is not even quite 5-8 in these pics, id give wentz 5-5.5 max. more likely a flat 5-5.
6 footpyschopath Hugh ... said on 1/Dec/08
glenn is 5'8 okay...5'6 sounds resonable...for a short man like he did not eat right as a child....
leonari said on 12/Nov/08
Leung: indeed:A flat 168 cm would be more accurate. No doubt in my mind.
Leung said on 11/Nov/08
Hey leonari, nothing to do with your dislike of him because this guy is short!

leonari said on 11/Nov/08
This guy looks short everywhere. Maybe only to me cause I don't like him.
me said on 10/Nov/08
theres no way in hell this guy 5"6.5, he looked i few inchs smaller than 5"8 chris daughtry and atlest 2 inchs smaller than 5"7 katy perry, on some mtv's weird show i saw last night.
dudewer said on 22/Oct/08
hes pretty short, i saw him up close in california and im 5"11" he was at least 6 to seven inches shorter than me
Antron said on 8/Oct/08
Im thinking more like 5'5" for this guy. Doesnt look much taller than Pat Stump who is about 5'4"

Here he is with Michael Phelps. If Phelps is really 6'4", and more than a head taller (and Phelps has a long head/face), and given that Phelps was in gym shoes, here, and Pete was in heeled dress shoes, I can't see Pete being anything over 5'6", here, and most likely shorter.

One of the most overlisted ppl here. Also more than an inch shorter than Jonah Hill. Probably 5'4 1/2".
leonari said on 5/Sep/08
another height that is inflated. 169 is off. 167 looks more like the truth
Zana said on 4/Sep/08
In the VMA commercials on MTV he looks TINY next to a 6'1 Russell Brand. I say 5'4. He may wear his jeans very low, which makes the legs look shorter, but there is no way he is 5'6.5.
Big T said on 5/Aug/08
There's a problem here- FNMTV proved that there is a minimum of 4 inches difference between Pete and Rihanna, who is listed 5'8" here. Hmmmm. Rihanna looked 7 inches taller than Pete in heels and that's being conservative- it could've easily been mistaken for a full head difference.

Sure, her heels were high, but they weren't platform heels. Non-platform heels can't possibly give a woman more than 3 inches advantage over a man who has some form of footwear on, as Pete obviously did. Read the heel height article on this very site to understand why....unless the heels have a platform, the most they can do is approximate standing on tip-toes. Try it, and you'll see you don't gain as much height as you think.

My guess is that Wentz might be 5'4 1/2", I'm prepared to give Rihanna 5'8 1/2".
Izabela said on 2/Aug/08
He is definitely shorter than 5'6. I am 5'8 and when he was standing next to me he was shorter than my sister who is 5'5. He is very nice though.
XxHELENAxX said on 22/Jul/08
ACG, Gee way is 5'9 and Pete Wentz is 5'7. this site always gets celebs heights wrong.
Avg height said on 30/Jun/08
I think pete wentz maybe a solid 5'6, he looked like a dumpling beside rihanna on FN M.T.V, Rihanna did have huge heels on but was a tad shorter than Adam levine, who's about 6'0.
Leon said on 11/Jun/08
Pete Wentz looks 5'7" in this picture, assuming he's wearing sneakers. Judging by what he's wearing, I'd guess he was wearing sneakers and not dress shoes.
robbie said on 11/May/08
he looks about 1.5 - 2 inches shorter than glenn..
so yea he is about 5'6

well heres patrick stump's personal myspace page.... he lists himself at 164 cm. I don't see why he would lie at this point and if he was then it would be something ridiculous like 169 cm on it, he looks 164 cm to me too.

im not even sure who he is.i know the name of course.
ACG said on 3/Mar/08
If Pete Wentz is really only 5'6 flat maximum, then Gerard Way's height should be changed, too. If anything, Pete is taller than Gerard, I think.

Hey Glenn, ever ran into Gee?
glenn said on 19/Feb/08
im leaning in.
kelsey said on 18/Feb/08
glenn, if you're 5'8" then Pete's gotta be at least 5'7" or maybe even 5'7.5"
he doesnt look that much shorter than you

Chicago Winter said on 24/Aug/07
ToTo kung, the video is about their past year of whirlwinds. If you don't understand it, its probably because your not a huge fan. A lot of the things in that video are things from their old music and videos and were meant for the die hards. When he wakes up and its in black and white and Andy says, "Dreams again?" that's because Pete has had a nightmare since he was a kid that haunts him in his sleep. He has it to this day and it keeps him up at night. He wrote a book about it titled "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" which was a song from The Smiths on their "the Queen Is Dead" record. Also, a lot of things in the video are inside jokes that the band has with the fans. Things only a true Fall Out Boy fan would understand. And a lot of people in the video are personal friends such as Dirty and Korean Tom Cruise. If you listen to their old music such as "Switchblades and Infidelities" or "Growing Up" you'll find out a lot of stuff

drew said on 28/Jul/07
thats not necesarilly true ademus, if you know how to handle a women
(handle being a general term for talk, walk, dress, etc around women),
then even an ugly dude can get with a beautiful girl. women are less
visual than men. but such 'game' isn't common among men.

also, being famous will get you a lot of attention from women,
so will being tall. i read somewhere that height is the most important
thing to women. BUT, its nothing a shorter guy can't make up for
if he knows how.

ANYWAYS, nice to know that pete wentz is my height,
i was starting to think i was short.

yea fall out boy are not that tall the tallest in the band is 5ft 9in butim not sure who. Jon Doe= i think he is hot and its not cause he is in a band its as he looks after him self and he is so cute by the way glenn has he got bebo as there are many fakes around and my sis has one as a mate if he has wats his username
Ademus said on 18/Jul/07
Jon Doe, you're completely wrong. Height isn't that big of a factor. No matter how tall you are, girls will not date you if you're ugly.
Jon Doe said on 17/Jun/07
The only reason girls think he's hot is because he's famous and he's in a band, alot of girls probably wouldn't date him if he wasn't coz girls care alot about height.But then again in my school all the guys who are around 5'5 to 5'6 have no trouble getting girls but guys any shorter than that are pretty well screwed, maybe I should start wearing lifts.
Drew said on 31/May/07
Just saw him on TRL. Next to 6'2" Damian I assumed he was 5'7". 169cm is definitely possible but not much less than that.

next to ashlee, he doesn't seem much taller, if not the same height or a half inch shorter. 5'6"-5'6.5" is about right.

he's at least 3 inches taller than 5'3-5'4 patrick strump, so 5'6.5 make sense to me
