Rob,how much difference do you see in this photo,ignoring Catriona's footwear advantage? And what size are their heels?
Thank you.
Editor Rob
Seems in the 4 inch range there.

Hope you can ignore my last comment. I have made edits and maybe you can publish and reply to this one instead.

@Rob, would you say Catriona is actually 175cm? Because in several of the stills that I saw when she was standing up straight next to 184cm Steve Harvey (perhaps 185-186cm in his dress shoe), the pictures are quite surprising.

When she was wearing her black dress and in 3 inch heels, she looked 1 inch shorter than Harvey.

Click Here (due to camera angle, this one makes her look the same height but other pics disprove this)

Let's say that in the black dress she is 183cm. Okay?

When she was wearing the red dress and in 6 inch heels, she looked 1 inch taller.

Here in the red dress let's say she is 188cm.

If she is 183cm in the black dress with 3 inches of heels, considering the rotation of the ankles and the height of the shoe platform, she would have gained about 2.6-2.8 inches, which would would make her true height about 175-176cm.
If she is 188cm in the red dress with 6 inch heels, considering the ankle rotation and the 2-inch height of the shoe platform, she would have gained about 4.8-5 inches, that would also make her true height around 175cm.

Don't forget the podium she is standing on is raised by 1cm, so she already has a 1cm advantage over Harvey in those photos, not including her heels. While Harvey was wearing dress shoes that barely give him more than a 1.5cm lift (very shallow dress heels). If Harvey is actually 184-185cm, and in those shoes he was perhaps 186cm, I fail to see Catriona being any taller than 5'10", most likely around 5'9"-5'9.5" (175-176cm). Catriona needed to be 6'3" (190-191cm) and a full 2 inches taller than Harvey in the 6" stilletos for her to be considered 178cm (5'10").

Oh, I also think that at this point she deserves her own page.
Editor Rob
Somewhere around 5ft 9 (maybe on the nose) is a better bet than almost 5ft 11.
Mimi said on 29/Dec/18
@Oliver that is a certain probability. I can't see her above 5ft9.5 and below 5ft9

Rob,if Catriona Gray is approximately 5'10,how tall would she be in those heels?
Thank you.
Oliver said on 23/Dec/18
@Mimi,I remember that Catriona was listed as 5'9.5(177cm) when she competed in the Miss World 2016 peageant. Maybe that's her real height and probably later upgraded to 5'10 when she competed in Miss Universe. The same with a girl from my country who was first described as 5'8.5 in a local peageant but when she went to miss universe, she became listed as 5'9.
Hope it helps you.
Mimi said on 21/Dec/18
But do you think Catriona could be under? Like 5ft9.5ish?
Editor Rob
I've not seen much of her really to say, but just that moment she looks near 5ft 10.
Mimi said on 18/Dec/18
Rob how tall do you think the new Miss Universe Catriona Gray from the Philippines is?
Here she is with Pia

She's listed at 5ft10 but i think she's shorter. Here she is with Pia Wurtzbach and I think she's wearing at least 2 cm bigger heel.
Editor Rob
I think Catriona can pull it off there.
Nik said on 11/Dec/18
Pia (autocorrect tried to change it to pis) can have the 5'7" that she claimed in 2012! She is very pretty and a nice person too!
Mimi said on 2/Nov/18
Rob is she considered very tall for a Filipina? Also how much should you be taller than average height to be considered very tall?
Editor Rob
Yes, she is very tall. If you consider the average as around 5ft range, then 5ft 7 is quite significant - I think maybe 5-6 inches above the average gets into that very tall zone.

Rob,how much difference do you see here? 4 inches?
Thank you.
Editor Rob
It can seem close to that amount
Oliver said on 10/Oct/18
Thank you for your reply, Rob.
That woman is Raquel Pelissier(Miss Haiti 2016) and she was listed 180cm but I do think she's taller than that because she towered over everyone on stage during the pageant.
Do you think she could be at least 6ft?
Editor Rob
Raquel did claim to be 5ft 11, but maybe she can look 6ft at times.
Oliver said on 7/Oct/18

Rob,how tall do you think this girl(Miss Haiti) next to Pia is?
Thank you.
Editor Rob
There can seem between 6 and 7 inches, though maybe there is also nearly 2cm advantage in footwear.

@Rob,if Olivia Jordan is 5'10.5-11,than how about the other girl?
She is miss universe 2014 from Colombia,she is listed at 5'9 but I think she looks taller than that.
Mimi said on 6/May/18
And now Google is listing her at 1.75m or 5ft9 even when she was measured at a supposed "5ft8" on a Philippine talk show

Rob,how tall do you think Miss USA 2015, Olivia Jordan is?
Editor Rob
I don't think she is far off her 5ft 11 claim, at worst 5ft 10.5
Conan said on 12/Apr/18
She is shorter than me almost 3 in (7.5 cm). I'm 5 ft 9 7/8 in (177.5 cm) on barefoot in the morning
Mimi said on 7/Feb/18
I think they thought she was 5ft8 because she was at the 5-8mark but it's really not accurate. She's only 5ft7 at most since she's not over the 170cm mark am I right Rob?
Editor Rob
It didn't look like she was over 5ft 7.

Hey Rob, this is from a television show wherein they measured the actual height of Pia Wurtzbach and her boyfriend. Just letting you know..

Looks close to 5ft 7

I was close friends with a 169 filipina and she never seemed to comment on how tall she was. I remember her saying she dated short guys back in the philipines so maybe thats it?

IDK the average height there but I'm sure its at least 5'6 for the upper class
Mimi said on 21/Jul/17
She's a fellow Filipina and I would say she can even look a weak 5ft7. Anyway, it doesn't matter cause she's considered a really tall girl here. I am almost 5ft8 myself and people treat me like a giantess.
Tyson said on 20/Jul/17
Pia is cute and so gorgeous and Steve Hearbey a idiot lol
DirectorKrennic said on 19/Jul/17
5'7" seems right.
Peter175 said on 18/Jul/17
She looks very short next to the other contestants. So that definitely puts into perspective how tall the miss universe girls are. I wouldn't be surprised if most of them are 178+. Certain a few of them were pushing pass 6ft barefoot
even said on 18/Jul/17
5'7" , 100 lbs
Intevel said on 18/Jul/17
Rob are you sure she's 5 ft 7? People seem to say she's short.
Editor Rob: well I wouldn't go over 5ft 7, but 5ft 6? I'm not sure on that.
