He can't be anywhere near 6'8'' if you look at other angles of will smith and him will smith clearly breaches his eye level, and will smith is not even 6'2'' in reality.
So even with lifts of some sort, it wouldn't put aaron above 6'7''.
That photo above is a very misleading angle
Canson said on 14/Jan/22
said on 12/Jan/22
Not the best angle but Quinton with Magic Johnson Click Here
Do you reckon they are the same height Rob?
Shows a few inches closer can sometimes add extra height, as I don't think Magic is any shorter than Quinton.
Leesheff85 said on 27/Oct/21
Definitely 6 inches taller than will here. Can't be under the listed height
JD1996 said on 20/Jun/21
6 inches on will smith looks 6’7.5” to me.
ChaosControl 6'2.5/189.2cm said on 8/May/21
I think this is very much a midday listing. 6’8.25 first thing, 6’7 into bed, 2m exactly at extreme low
FriedChicken said on 8/Mar/21
6 ft 8 out of bed
Walks at 6 ft 7 flat most of the day then dips to 6 ft 6 3/4 before bed.
Leesheff85 said on 4/Mar/21
6ft 7.5 is fine. He looks 5 to 6 inches taller than will smith who isnt below 6ft 1.5 no way he is below the listing
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 1/Mar/21
I have mention here several times he isn't looking over 5" max taller than 6'0 director John Lee Hancock. In fact that John Lee Hancock was listed wrongly and was 6'2 not 6'0 this less and not high as 6'3 so no way Quinton is 6'8 or even 6'7 1/2. 6'7 flat is the most he get.
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 21/Feb/21
I think morning 6’8.25 and evening 6’7 flat
Canson said on 18/Feb/21
@Vincent and Editor Rob: not that I believe a full 6’8” but do you think he could lose maybe 1.5” being as obese as he is? Maybe he wakes up over 6’8” or near and dips to or even under 6’7” later

@Vincent I’m convinced that Leesheff may just hate me, this is a good example of why. Also look at Kevin Hart
’s page for more evidence he dislikes me
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 12/Feb/21
@Vincent add in the fact that if he halved his weight at 500 pounds, he’d still be in the overweight bracket
Vincent Caleb said on 12/Feb/21
Oops I actually need to correct that. He has been 530-540 pounds at 6’6.75”.
Vincent Caleb said on 10/Feb/21
Again dude? He isn’t making fun of the dude, he is just stating that he is extremely heavy, which is true. He has been well over 500 pounds at 6’8”, I don’t know what else he could have said about it. Weight does affect height and shrinkage, so we can’t just avoid discussing it just for the sake of political correctness. Ex:
If he was about 250 pounds lighter, he would lose around a cm less throughout the day.
said on 29/Jan/21
Only a couple of inches taller than John Lee Hancock in this photo!
Leesheff85 said on 24/Jan/21
Enormously fat? That's a bit judgemental dont you think
ChaosControl 6'2 1/2 said on 18/Jan/21
Does his weight make him look taller or shorter? Cause surely being enormously fat would dislocate your bones and make you taller
said on 9/Jan/21
He has a camera advantage though.
Here is one where Will has the advantage:
Listing is still too high.
Leesheff85 said on 9/Jan/21
The likes of 6ft 5 1/2 to 6ft 6 is out of the question for him as will smith would come up to his eyebrows and doesn't I see a good 6 inches between them 6ft 7.5 is fine wouldnt guess as low as 6ft 7 flat though theres always a chance of 6ft 7 1/4
Mickie said on 8/Jan/21
Yeah it was a good change in the listing from 6'8" to 6'7.5". Even though I still think 6'7" flat is likely, 6'7.5" seems like a conceivable "best case scenario" where as a full 6'8" just seemed hard to imagine.
Leesheff85 said on 2/Jan/21
I really do think hes got a good 6 inches on will Smith here. 6ft 7.5 is fine
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Dec/20
Even the pic with Will Smith above, he didn't look 6'8". The 6'7.5" listing is an improvement, but he's more max 6'7" like Junior said.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Dec/20
Well now i just saw the half inch downgrade. It is much better than his 6'8 claim. Montell Jordan and Quinton were both closer to 6'7 than 6'8 claim.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Dec/20
Nevermind the shrinkage, his health too. Guys that big typically don't live long, unfortunately.
Canson said on 2/Dec/20
@Vincent: he could lose a bit more than average. A 6’7 listing may be more appropriate
Vincent Caleb said on 30/Nov/20
@ Chris Junior Hernandez 1990
He could be 6’8” out of bed and 6’6 5/8” at night if he still weighs as much.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Nov/20
Flat 6'7 meaning 6'6 3/4-7/8 range would be highest low for him. So just say he is 6'7. Over listed an inch. Director John Lee Hancock peak is 6'2 not 6'3 to be consider this issue for Quinton being "6'8" tall.
FriedChicken said on 19/Nov/20
If he doesn't cut off some weight then i can see him shrinking noticeably in his mid 40s.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Nov/20
Doubt it, he's only 36 and wasn't an athelete, especially not a wrestler.
J2Frenzy said on 15/Nov/20
He probably lost a little. He did weigh nearly a quarter ton at one point
Leesheff85 said on 14/Nov/20
He certainly is 6ft 8 just look at him with sandra bullock
Vincent Caleb said on 29/Oct/20
The more pictures I look at of this dude, the more over listed he looks. My 6-7 guess may have been generous. He may wake at 6-8 and drop to 6-6.5-.75. If he really ways as much as I think he does, and the fact that he is that tall he is losing at least 1.25 inches. That is putting a lot of stress on his spine. He may lose similar height to someone who is 7 feet or taller.
recapa said on 24/Oct/20
way overlisted.6ft7 max maybe
Vincent Caleb said on 23/Oct/20
6’8” is too high for Quinton. Perhaps he is more like 6’7”.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Oct/20
Because he wasn't even a solid 6'7.
said on 6/Oct/20
Don't see this guy being taller than Tyson Fury
to be honest.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 2/Jul/20
John Lee Hancock is obviously not a 6'0 guy for sure if not Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell, Sandra Bullock all had to be down 2". John is approaching 64 now so he might be looking 6'1.5-6'1.75" in most recent pictures, but with Quinton Aaron in 2009 he look an easy 6'2 and there is where i find out Quinton is under 6'8 even if he standing straight with him here Click Here
6'6 1/2 is the max he look. If he had low set eye level which the most he could get is 6'6 3/4. Def 6'7 a little before mid day, but a peak John look a strong 6'2 to me.
J-Dog said on 23/Jun/20
Hey @Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 - John Lee Hancock is now listed at 6'2" within the link you referenced...I think you were pretty accurate to pick up he was possibly under-listed prior.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/May/20
Need a big downgrade for Quinton. Weak 6'7 guy claiming 6'8.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Apr/20
Wow, 22's just insane. (if the info's true) I'd doubt it though, because his feet don't look that out of proportion to the rest of his body. I've met a guy in college near his height (6'5"-6'6" range, same as me) who wore 19's, and his shoe size and the proportion to his body looked very similar to Quinton's. Still, 19 at that height is huge.
Canson said on 24/Apr/20
I agree with Mickie. Lazy posture gets 6’6 appearance but he’s not 6’8 even if he stood straight
viper said on 21/Apr/20
Never heard of anyone being his height wearing size 22 shoes
viper said on 21/Apr/20
I would have thought 6-6 from seeing him in the blind side.
He's been described as 6-7 before.
I can't see 6-8 at all.
Maybe, maybe 6-7
Linke said on 19/Apr/20
With the weight he is carrying, I believe he may end up losing height quickly like that giant dude from GOT.
Mickie said on 30/Dec/19
Aaron is a big guy, and probably can measure an inch taller than he looks like walking around. But he walks around looking barely 6'6" most of the time. I think he's a 6'7" guy, with lazy posture, but not really over that.
truthteller25 said on 26/Oct/19
6'7 and 440 I can see

Rob, you missed out this picture angle it was tilt up more on Aaron side if you check on the background Click Here
He isn't much over 6'6 at most 6'6 1/2 you already see it of him with 6'8 1/2 max Blake Griffin. He need a downgrade at least not flat 6'6 now like many argues.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 12/Aug/19
Rob, you need to look into the big issue on Quinton. He isn't as tall as you listed him not even 6'7 consider Blake Griffin could reach 6'8 1/2 morning then he is 6'6 1/2 not more.
6ft 7.5 could be closer, he did still look 5 years ago Quite big
beside danny glover which was a year after I met him...and I know Glover at that time wasn't under 6ft 1 range
Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 7/Jun/19Click Here
6'8.25" Blake Griffin standing behind and still look 2" taller than Quinton Aaron.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/May/19
Rob should notice now he isn't 6'7-6'8. John Lee Hancock can't be 6'4 and get listed at 6'0.
Mickie said on 24/Jan/19
He doesn't look over 6'6" much of the time. But he's a guy who doesn't seem to force posture, and I believe he can straighten up to 6'7" for a measurement.
said on 9/Jan/19
Unless Aaron is slouching badly with Metta World Peace I find 6’8 unbelievable. Looks 6’6” range next to him honestly at most. Of course not the best pic
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
He definitely doesn’t look anywhere near 6’8”
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 28/Sep/18
I think Rob needs to take a closer look of his height. 6'8" is way too high for him.
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
Agree with Bobby. He’s Melo’s height
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Sep/18
Looks nowhere near 6'8" with 5'7" listed Sandra Bullock.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Aug/18
John Kap is no way over 6'7 tops. Quinton look about 1/2 shorter than Kap. But i did give them both 6'7.
Sotiris Gravas said on 23/Jul/18
I respectfully disagree w/ this listing. There's no way he's more than 6-foot-6. There are online pics of Quinton w/ Ron Artest. The thing is, Artest is only 6'5" barefoot, not his 6'7" NBA listed height. (Pics of Artest w/ 6'4.75" Kobe Bryant proves this.) Also, The photo w/ legit 6'4" Jared Padalecki is further proof. Perhaps he was taller in his 20s and spinal compression due to obesity brought about height loss. That means that John Kap is also 6-foot-6, not 6'8", as per online pics of them together. (The most I ever weighed was 305 lbs. I'm now at a more healthy 270 lbs for my 6'7" daytime height frame.)
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Jul/18
A big inch downgrade needed.
said on 1/Jul/18
Hey Rob how there are only a few celebrities in the entire world are 6’8? Sure 6’8 isn’t a common height but it isn’t super rare like 7’0.
There's not many actors around that range. Sure, there are wrestlers and nba stars.
Canson said on 24/May/18
If he weighed less he may be able to hold his height better
tree said on 23/May/18
The most he weighed is 565lbs and his 6ft8 according to his Instagram
Berta said on 3/Mar/18
I think he is just over 2 meter. This is his morning height
VicLions said on 22/Nov/17
I would definitely say he is 6ft8

I found the link. From this picture can't tell if Jack Black had more footwear but Jack Black is close to camera and Quinton Aaron leaning and slouch a little look just under 6'7. I think with adjusted posture he can look 6'7.5" max i really don't see if he can stand at 6'7.75"-6'8 range judging from other pictures too also another link with 6'1 Director Quintin Tarantino make him look more like 6'6.5".
I'm sorry, it's ridiculous to claim that you can tell the difference between 6'7.5" and 6'8". That's just downgrading for the sake of downgrading. The man is close enough to 6'8" to claim that height. Squabbling over .5" at that height is just plain trying to lower the bar.

When you are above 6'6, you simply cannot tuck shirts into your trousers anymore.

I just met him in Santa Monica. He's huge! Definitely 6ft8 in his bare feet. In shoes, more than that.

said on 5/Jan/16
This pic is a repost of what Arch says, but I think it's worth mentioning twice because he looks so much shorter than 6'8" in the picture. The guy on the far left is on the database at 6'0"! And honestly, I can't even say I think Aaron is dropping any more height of the two. Click Here
He looks under 6'4" in that picture. Obviously I think he's taller than that, but then again next to the real Michael Oher who is 194 cm (6'4 3/8" per combine I believe it was) he only looks an inch taller to me: Click Here
I think 6'7" makes more sense than 6'8", and it's a height he's been described at many times. He can look 6'5" due to his weight and poor posture, but I think it's much easier to envision him stretching 1.5 or 2 inches higher than he looks than it is 3 inches.
Ice said on 13/Aug/15
I watched the Blind Side , and Ive got to say he didnt look as tall as a legit 6'8" guy , like for instance Tyler Mayne in Haloween . Id say this guy is 6'6 ish
said on 21/Jul/15
I really see him more as a 6'7"-ish guy. And he's been described as "At 6-foot-7, and about 440 pounds" Click Here
and "standing nearly 6’8”, but he was much too heavy to pass for a high school or even college football player" Click Here
G said on 25/May/15
I decided to watch The Blind Side, and there he did not look 6'8. He looked at most 6'6 for me.

I could buy 199-200 range I guess but 6 ft 9 in shoes? Not seeing it!!
said on 13/May/15
Rob are you sure on 6 ft 8?
(director John Lee Hancock on left who is on the database as just 6 ft flat!!!
He is dropping some height in some photos but 6 ft 8 does seem a stretch in a lot of pics!
6ft 7 range is a good chance...but is he a guy who is unable to stand as tall, but for a measurement can for a moment stretch up.
Arch Stanton said on 13/May/15
Looks 6 ft 2 to 3 in the above photo proportionally LOL. I guess James is right about a fat guy giving a short impression. Compare this guy to 6'7 Richard Osman for instance. He looks 6 inches taller than this guy here!
noor nuanga said on 12/May/15
Looks 6'7 to me
Andrea said on 20/Feb/15
No, he doesn't look it to be fair but stretched for a measurement he might be 6'7-6'8!

Rob , Glover in your opinion is max 6'1.5 ish , how can he be 6'8 ?
to the end of a big guy's nose will be more than just 6 inch flat, I can believe the 2 listings in that photo are close.

This is a bit excessive. Here he is with 6'5" Usain Bolt who was in flat tennis shoes at this event:
I couldn't see giving him anymore than just under 6'7".
said on 23/Oct/13
I saw a picture of him and ron artest, he only looks 1" taller. so id say around 6'7". Click Here
This says he's 6'7".
said on 4/Sep/13
Rob, i'd safely say he looks at least 4 inches taller than 6'3 Kevin Sorbo here: Click Here
Maybe he really is between 6'7 and 6'8, even if he gives a 6'6 max impression sometimes
I think kevin looks like he'd be around his eyelevel, a guy with QUinton's bulk will look shorter at times, but maybe he is really closer to 6ft 8, and sometimes can look shorter than he measures.
Balrog said on 4/Aug/13

Candyman said on 4/May/13
jimmy says on 24/Mar/13
Rob what do u think of this pic?He is not 6'8(even by tilting his head back)
I think another thing people forget to factor in is hair. While Manganiello is definitely at or very near his stated height of 6'5", he also sports some big hair that can make him appear taller than he actually is especially around people with lower hair styles. Bill Clinton, Elvis and many other well known figures have this hair style and cause the same confusion.

Rob what do u think of this pic?He is not 6'8(even by tilting his head back)

Rob, this is an interesting pic: Click Here
With Padalecki and Ackles, he looks about the same of Jared but this one is closer to the camera... Anyway there wouldnt be much difference between them... With Ackles he for sure doesnt look a big 6'8 guy.... Maybe he's slouching?
he appears more 6ft 6 at most there
Mathew said on 28/Jan/13
He's been described as 6'7" before as well. Could be closer, or it could be between 6ft 7 and 8.

Blind side was just a listed height. The Real Michael Oher was measured at 6'4 3/8" and listed as 6'4".
Lo sgozzatore said on 16/Dec/12
As said he surely can look only 6'6-6'7 but hes very big and he could be not standing at his tallest most of the times!
Mathew said on 14/Dec/12
Jake T. says on 13/Dec/12
Quinton is in a photo with Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) and they seem to be the same height. I would say 6'7 for Quinton.
Yeah, Quinton looked maybe .5" taller or something but Ron/Metta is 6'6" (as listed on the pro basketball reference site) so I'm not sure about 6'8" for this guy.
Steven said on 13/Dec/12
How come at The Blind Side premiere he looks 6'4 ??
said on 11/Dec/12
Yeah, if you see him next to Tim Mcgraw, he neither looks 24 cms taller as he should be... I thought 6'6 was possible, a big 6'6! Remember how tall the 196 challenger looked next to Rob, he was huge! Maybe if this guy stands straight, he really measures near 6'8...
he can look 6ft 6-7, but it might be a case of measuring taller than he stands yes.
