How tall is Rob Paul

Rob Paul's Height

5ft 8 ⅛ (173 cm)

I created CelebHeights.com in 2004 as an entertainment site about Celebrity Height. I measure 5ft 8 ⅛in at night, which is usually about the height I am in most photos with celebrities. First thing in the morning, I measure around 5ft 8 ¾in. For some height-related videos check out my Youtube channel. As of February 2019 I measure close to 5ft 8.25 at lunchtime and in this Video you can see my current weight.

Rob, I’m pretty sure I still get down to my low height even if I’m sitting for long periods of time. Is this normal? Maybe it’s the way I’m sitting, or something to do with my sitting posture?
Editor Rob
Sitting can put pressure on discs (lower lumbar region), although on a couch, sometimes the support is different and not as bad as sitting upright on a stool or driving chair.

@Rob, or is Lewis Big Adam's friend or brother? Do they know each other? Lewis and Adam.. Curious...
Editor Rob
They are cousins, and both are 17.

@Rob, glad to hear that Lewis heart surgery went well.... btw, he will be 17 soon????

@Canson. Oh, I see. Some kinds of flip-flop with thicker heels.

@ Rob - Arghhhh! I wouldn't want to mess with Longsleeve! 😖 Painful! He could set up his own profanisaurus! 📓

@Canson
Yeah, it's petty for Andrea to call you that. I've seen much worse on here though.
SeanR said on 24/Aug/19
Hi Rob, you do a very good job maintaining this site. Listing true exact heights of celebs is not easy but you nail it for most of the folks you post here.

I’m curious, and maybe you can’t share but have you ever had celebrities themselves come to this site and comment or even question their own heights?
Editor Rob
Well there have been some in person who recognised me...but only a tiny few ever emailed the site. And only a few who left a comment I'd have said that it was the celebrity, again probably only a very small amount.
Andrea said on 24/Aug/19
Is that Longsleeve guy for real? WTF?!? 😲
I don't know the whole story behind it, and what Connor told him, but I would avoid arguing with someone like him... about anything (not only about height)!
Editor Rob
If you argue with guys like that, do it anonymously, but really, don't do it at all.

He might have used the same aerosol can as Greg when measuring a whopping 5ft 11.25, now he simply insists 5ft 11 is 181cm 😆

I would like to go on record that bartolongsleeve, Australian Big G, now claims he is over 6'0 at 177cm. I can't take it anymore. You should see his videos. He needs psychiatrict attention.
Editor Rob
1 video was enough to see the guy was not somebody I would argue with.

Hmm. From Tom Welling's page:
"Canson said on 2/Nov/18
@thisismoe!!: you just said it best! Internet trolls which is exactly what you are! You once said that Tim Robbins was over 6’5 near 6’6” when the man claimed his actual height several times. Rampage was correct however. “You are a loser troll who wastes time and energy denigrating the opinions of others”. How are you gonna “meet these people” when you don’t even work in show Biz anymore? Probably never did in the first place. I’m surprised that you were even hired in the first place seeing as how YOU ARE A CANCER here attacking anyone who disagrees with your “alleged” first hand encounters with people! You’re pathetic seriously"
I really don't know whether you are more stupid or hypocritical, LOL.
Not only you have no room to criticize me for that, but in your case, you directly did call moe cancer. Where is your cheap political correctness and fake bleeding heart approach there, huh?
Me calling you Canser, after all, is a very honest Freudian slip, given that you act like it, by polluting and damaging more and more all the site with your BS, which you keep repeating over and over again, as if you were trying to convince yourself, before the others!

1. Rob will you add more MMA fighters?
2. What is your opinion on Tyron Woodley height? He considered as 175 cm but, he looks about 171 cm/172 cm?
Editor Rob
Woodley might be nearer 5t 8 than 9, but I'm not sure he is sub 5ft 8, I wouldn't guess it.
Jdubbz said on 24/Aug/19
@Rob:

What exactly did Connor do to piss that guy off???
Editor Rob
I think this guy was claiming 6ft is 180cm and a couple of folk were trying to point out he's wrong...but it seems Connor called him out for some other stuff he was saying, and that made him really pissed off.
Irie said on 24/Aug/19
U are a little more than 173.2cm(at lowest)for now and u are not going below that before age 50(or even 75 if you don't get numb to work).And why u type 5'8"(172.72cm)at the end of your videos?1/8 part must be included.
Editor Rob
5ft 8 1/8th is about my low mark after being more physically active during the day. I do think most people would think of me as a strong 5ft 8, but not enough to claim 5ft 8.5 though!!
Canson said on 24/Aug/19
@Rob:

There are ways of phrasing things which Andrea should know better to avoid on here, because it can become petty and escalate. No need for a turn of word like that on here andrea!

Well this was first said to me back in October when he poked his nose into the discussion (and also escalated it) that Christian and I were involved in on this page. I let it go that time however but I am not this time because I have lost a friend to cancer in the last year. And this was after he lectured Christian about jumping end to defend me (after something was said to me unprovoked). And I’m going to apologize to you and the other posters (not him of course) about what I said back to him but I felt that I needed to make a statement here because as we’ve seen this is a common thing. I’m not saying that I have not crossed the line because I’m well aware that I have during my time here. I’m not afraid to admit it but I’ve received a warning when he never has. I respond the way that I do just because of the hypocrisy and some of the “accusations”. Like another poster said, he can’t remain consistent for more than one post as soon as the person that is on the receiving end of it makes their rebuttal
Editor Rob

I disagree with many folk, but I am not going to prolong arguments. Sometimes one person just has to say - I got no time for this, I'll let it go and avoid interaction.

Hey Rob! You have to hear this! My boyfriend came in from his daily toil when there was a knock at the door. He'd just decided to go to sleep, de-clothed because of the hot weather. He answered in all seriousness and enquired as to the nature of their charity work. Why was he so perturbed when they declined his offer to come in for tea and a discussion? 🤣🤔😲
Editor Rob
Yeah, that would have been a shock for them! I'd have declined too 😲
Paycho said on 24/Aug/19
Hey rob
Would a 171-172 cm male be considered in the short range or average range in italy?
Thanks
Editor Rob
Could depend on the country. In the UK it's in the zone going from lower end of average to upper end of short.

@Rob you got Connor good, you really did the Golden stadiometer prevails again that should teach him to be so rude and obscene on a height forum! But things happen I suppose, now you see why we had some fall outs in the past it’s a shame 😂.
Editor Rob

For his own good, he needs to get away from arguing about height for a while...look at what it gets him into with the guy on youtube - Longsleeve - now that kind of guy you should not be arguing with about height.
AndrewV said on 23/Aug/19
@Christian 6'5 3/8"

The average could be different where you live, but a solid 5'10" really does seem to be the average for young white men based on my own observations living in NC. I certainly feel taller at 6' shopping at Walmart than I do at, say, a frat party at my college.
Jdubbz said on 23/Aug/19
@Canson:

It’s really weird because my low seems to be somewhat variable these days despite similar activity. Usually it’s right at 6’5.75, but sometimes it goes as low as 6’5.5. So I just split the difference and say 6’5 5/8 which I guess makes me weak 6’6. So I’m in that 6’5.5-6’5.75 area depending on the day.

Feeling bloated has little to do with weight. You can still gain weight and be fat without feeling bloated.

@Bobby. Yeah, flip flop definitely doesnt even give more mm height than decent and teared down converse and Van's shoes for sure. I would guess regular flip flop would give little less than 0.9cm while others are probably around 1.1cm or so....

@Rob Paul

Hi Rob, Connor's been worried that he may have been banned from CelebHeights because several of his posts haven't been approved by you. I don't exactly know the nature of all that he said, but I understand he may have said some untoward things against Avi. I guess ultimately my question is, has he been banned or are his posts still pending approval by you?
Editor Rob
Comments I don't publish sometimes go over the line. Tell him to come back on September 1st.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Aug/19
@Questioner
When you include all ethnicites, the average isn't 5'10" or 5'11" though. It's more 5'9", at least that's how it is in US and UK. Maybe 5'9.5" max for young people of all races but not more than that. Even for young whites, it's certainly no more than 5'10". But there's really no such thing as "indisputably" when it comes to classifying height, because everyone's standards are different. Some posters here consider 5'11" as tall, while others don't see anything under 6'2"-6'3" as tall. I personally consider 6'0" to be the start of tall.

Yes, but some people think that the 1st Amendment applies to every sector of society, including in privately owned spaces. People sometimes conflate free speech with free from consequences. Just as people are free to post what they want here, Rob also has the right to delete the post or ban the poster if he feels that it violates the Terms Of Service.

Hey rob, could you do an update picture on how tall big Lewis is beside you? It’s so good to hear that the young kid was strong during his heart surgery ❤️❤️
Editor Rob
I'll do an update video in the future if he is up for it.

Best weight is when you don't feel so bloated after a good sized meal
Bobby 178cm said on 21/Aug/19
@Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173)

To answer your question, I own a pair of flip flops. I haven't officially measured the difference from barefoot to flip flops, but I think most would give you half an inch or 1.3cm. I think mine gives that amount, it feels that much to me. It could be slightly less, so let's say something from 1/4 to 1/2. That sounds reasonable.
Importer said on 21/Aug/19
@Connor Simpson maybe he thinks 5’9” is an inch under 6’0” too. The figure in his head is probably 5.9 and 6.0. This explains why some 5’9” guys claim 6’0” :))
Questioner said on 21/Aug/19
@christian bit late of a comment but in order to be tall indisputably not just kind of tall or pretty tall you need to be more than 2 standard deviations away from the average which is more than 4 inches so going by all ethnicites somewhere in the 6'2" range is where it starts and going by just youth (6'3" is where it starts)
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 21/Aug/19
Q: Rob, I just learned about you that You used to weigh about 185 lbs back in First week in 2017 and then 160lbs back in last February or so.. How did you loose 25 lbs in few years? Or Have you lost more weight since Feb 2019? Do you usually go to gym while you are not on Celebheight? Asking this out of curiosity... Is your goal weight 145lbs or so? I know, you wanna maintain healthy level of BMI for sure.. For me, I've lost 30lbs so far since 2016 from 240lbs to 210lbs and I am in slow mode for my weight loss than intermittent fasting... My goal weight is 180lbs or so not your weight at least cause I dont wanna be way too skinny like Lewis(Boy you measured his height 4 months ago to find out whether he has grown a lot or not)...
Editor Rob
Not been to a gym for many years now, I have increased amount of walking. I'm doing so much, I need a new pair of sneakers every week 😆

Last week I was 156 pounds. My goal is now 150. I still eat decent sized meals, maybe not much snacking in between.

Big Lewis did put on more height - last month he had surgery to repair heart issue, but is now back to good health and taller, over 6ft 1 now.

@Canson ah okay
Tunman said on 20/Aug/19
Rob,did you undergo a measurement for an official document(driving license,passport or else)?One of my friends who's planning to move to France (he now has french citizenship)was down at 179 on his passport,which is interesting as I didn't know they were measuring people for that in France.The point is that yesterday he was in our home and in fact I never thought of him as a 179 man,nor did I in the past,in fact he looks as someone over 5'9 with the highest chances for 5'9.25.In other words I'm almost sure I would edge him but let's say that if he turned 5'9.5"it wouldn't have been something I considered impossible,still nowhere near 179.It's just terrible how some errors are written on official papers.I wonder what sort of device they're using nowadays.I told you recently how my near 6'father managed to get a 186cm measurement under one of those machines.
Editor Rob
For a pre operation many years ago I had a 173cm measurement, we never get any measurements for passport or driving license, it's not mentioned for decades on the passport (height).
Canson said on 20/Aug/19
@Jdubbz: is 6’5.75 your low or is it 6’5.5 or 6’5 5/8? I always figured you were a weak 6’6” now a days like 6’5.5-.75 range as opposed to a flat 6’5.75
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 20/Aug/19
@Rob, yes. I was referring to Classic flip flop shoes like this one in a pic.

Click Here

I often wear this type of flip flop shoes whenever I go to swimming pool, jacuzzi, bars for special occasions on family and friends, beach with my friends and my husband and shopping etc on hot summer days!!! For hiking and gym, I mostly wear Reebok shoes called Reebok Men's Ridgerider Trail 4.0... that's one of my favorite Nike shoes for exercise and hiking and sport related activities etc.
Editor Rob
Yeah one day I will do something like classic flops... I've a stack of footwear never did a video for yet.
Canson said on 20/Aug/19
@Christian: agreed! But it does apply to some people as there are some where Rob never says anything to them
Sakz said on 20/Aug/19
@cmillzz You're absolutely right about height not being an issue for women. A lot of men actually prefer short women, whereas that wouldn't apply if it were the opposite. As for shorter women finding it easier to date, I'd say that would depend on how tall the woman is as well as the height of the male. If it causes awkwardness because the woman is really tall then that could be the case.

@khaled taban You're honestly making it a bigger deal than it is. It'll only be a problem if you let it. You're not short that's the main thing and some short women may even consider you tall, especially since their perception is skewed most of the time.

@Connor Simpson
lool how did you even find this guy? I legitimately was wondering if he was trolling or not for like 20 minutes but, expecially after seeing some of his other videos, I came to the conclusion that this poor guy probably had either bad health issues while growing up or was just unlucky. (Btw I do have a Steam "friend" who is of very similar behavior, but a little smarter) Even though I'm still kinda shocked that there are people like that (which makes me want to understand better what goes through their mind and what is the exact cause of the issue, since they almost look like another species to me), I'm kinda sad for this guy. I guess he's happy at least.
Bobby 178cm said on 20/Aug/19
@Rob Paul

Would you agree that a percentile of the strong 60s range is more towards above average territory and that a percentile beginning at 50 is average height? I would also say that the strong 70s range percentile is tallish. Does that sound about right to you, Rob?
Editor Rob
I am not sure, based on the UK figures, the average does drop down to 5ft 8 by 60's.

Q: Rob, Have you ever tried on Flip flop shoes on measuring height before?? B/c I haven't seen flip flop shoes height on youtube before. If not, try on flip flop shoes next time for youtube video on how much height does flip flop give. Some flip flop does give more mm height than the others at least...
Editor Rob
A classic looking flip-flop? Yeah, maybe one day I will get round to that one...
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 20/Aug/19
Hey Rob, just asking this out of curiosity, what time did you measure your height for your new YouTube video posted today for Vans classic slip on?? On other video you measured your height as 173.6 but today measured as 173.4 which is 3mm less than most of the time you measured up for YouTube video on how much height does certain shoes give up on whatsoever... do you usually measure your height around 4pm??? Plus, can you measure Jenny's height next time on your YouTube video just wanting to know whether she has lost more mm of height or not......
Editor Rob
I believe that measurement was between 4-4.30pm.

For all sneaker measurements, I do it twice, the barefoot and then sneaker measurement to make sure I am being as accurate as I can. And of course I'm measuring barefoot, then literally putting the sneakers on and doing that measurement straight away 👍

At one point I will do an update on Jenny's height, I think she has stabilised her loss.
cmillzz said on 19/Aug/19
@Rob
Your weight goal is 150 lbs? I was thinking more around 160.
Editor Rob
Yes, I feel if I get to 150 that will be me at prime weight. I am 156 this week, and been sitting roughly around that range for a while now. But I've been eating decent sized meals.

Hey Rob check this guy out, this guy thinks hes 5'11 at 177cm and 180cm is 6'0, i told him that he is wrong but he keeps insisiting that what he is saying is right, this guy is so delusional its laughable and his maths is absolutely terrible, but anyway watch this video and you'll see what i mean, this guy is crazy.

@Andrew
Average for young white and black guys doesn't quite feel 177-178 though. Keep in mind that some measurements take place earlier in the day, when most people don't reach their lowest heights yet. And a few are even measured with shoes. I'd say more 176-177 on average.
ajax509 said on 19/Aug/19
@Greg
Okay so you're 178cm at your low! Still, I was pretty much spot on when I wrote "going with 'just over 5ft 10' is good for you".

Although, it wasn't about the content of my massage, it was about how sensitively you reacted to a neutral question. That was completely overblown and testifies your height related inferiority complex. Have a Snickers 'little lad'!

Rob i mentioned on here before that there was this one time when i stood next to a really tall guy in the bus station, the top of his shoulder was level at the middle of my forehead, do you think he is 6'10.5 or 6'11?
Editor Rob
Yeah he could be that range, but sometimes guessing very tall heights is harder because you don't see them that often!.

put a friend who is 6ft to 6ft 2 on a box and measure them at say 6ft 9 or 10, it gives you a sense of how tall a person might look from your eyepoint of view.
Connor Simpson said on 18/Aug/19
@khaled taban Also who do you think youre talking to? Im Niks friend so i think its very much my business, if i feel like someone is bothering him then im allowed to speak up for him and defend him and clearly you was, just let the guy have his opinion dude, surely its not too much to ask.

Hey Rob! Why do my cats love me to sing to them? I'm listening to the Doors and they can't stop biting me! Love Me Two Times indeed! They're getting somewhat carried away!
Editor Rob
I never knew they liked singing...well to be fair, myself nor jenny are great singers, so maybe that's why sookie left the room when I started.

The only song I know in full is the Shaun the Sheep theme.

I picked that one to get Jenny fitter, and it works...I heartily recommend the Shaun the Sheep workout.

@It's not the worst thing in my life indeed , but It's a huge disadvantage.
These days anything below 6'0" is not THAT good , and even below 5'10" is much worse.
Probably If I were 5'10" , I would be a little happier , not quite though.
I pray to grow atleast to 5'10" (I am 20 y/o by the way) the chances are incredinly low.
Canson said on 18/Aug/19
@Cmillz: Amen. And I’ve been saying the same. I know one friend who used to list himself 6’1” on his license. It says 6’0” now. He’s actually like 5’10 1/2” and he never claimed to be 6’1”. He used to claim 6’0” years back actually. He came clean with us and said he’s 5’10 1/2” which he actually looks. At least he’s honest and he never has tried to inflate one of us. He always referred to Us by our claimed heights. Then I know of one that I played ball with in college who lists himself 6’7” on his and even calls himself 6’7” still. He’s not even as tall as my 6’6” friend. He’s precisely about 6’5 5/8” if I had to guess since he’s slightly taller than my 6’5.25 friend and slightly shorter than the 6’6” friend. He on the other hand inflates people. Me and my 6’7 friend played college ball with him and were roommates in college with him and he still calls us 6’6 (me), 6’7 for himself and 6’8 or even 6’8/6’9” for the legit 6’7” guy. We are constantly correcting him although he did admit maybe a year ago after we gave him hell that he’s 6’6” without shoes since our 6’6” friend who didn’t go to school with us, reminded him that he’s shorter than he is and that none of us except him claim shoes and asked him why he still does

@Connor Simpson: I certainly did not say it wasn’t a free country nor did I tell you what to do in your post. If you look closely and carefully, all I said was “I’d just let it go”. That’s me making a suggestion and I did it because I don’t want others to jump in and attack you. I’m actually looking out for you. You do see now that others are doing that? And I didn’t say you shouldn’t defend your friends because everyone here knows that I’ve done the same when someone else has been wronged. However, there is a fine line between defending someone and going a bit overboard which you are doing now. And this is constructive because you’ve done that before when someone else has been embroiled in an argument because you jumped in on Christian and me with Sandy previously and made it a bigger deal than it was. I’m not condoning MD’s post because Nik is more than entitled to say what he wants on this forum and Rob is the one who calls those shots. I’m simply advising you to let it go simply because it’s going to lead to additional people stepping in because what was said was far less inflammatory than what others have said in the past to others

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Aug/19
@khaled
Women who refuse men under 6 feet tall aren't worth dating anyways. There's a big difference between a height preference and a height requirement. A preference is something that you prefer, but can overlook height if you find enough good qualities in a person, while a requirement means that a person must be at least (or no more than) x feet x inches tall without exceptions.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Aug/19
@Cmillzz
You're 100% right. For a long time, I thought that the US average was at least 5'9.5", but that was back when I claimed 6'6" and wasn't as knowledgeable about height as I am today.

By the way @Nik is a good person , I respect him , but he was trying to convince me that 5'9" is a good height and I disagree , that's it.
Lell said on 16/Aug/19
@Khaled Taban

Hey sup? You middle-eastern too? Look, I know that it may suck to be shorter than others, but I can say from my point of view living with lots of tall people that atleast here nobody would notice your height unless you bring it up yourself a lot, and barely anybody would even comment at all after that because you aren't short enough for it to make a mark on others.

I get what you mean with girls not wanting guys below 6' and I agree, that is really shallow of them. Would you really want a girl like that tho? I like to see it this way: not being tall gives me an advantage, because I can know more surely if the girl is only a thot who wants somebody only for their height, or if she genuinely likes you for YOU.

Most importantly, remember that if you don't excel in the height department, that doesn't mean that you don't excel in something else. Sure, I'm not as tall as those 6'+ guys who many envy and look up to for their height aesthetics, but I do on the other hand have a developed jawline which is something many people want TRUST me, and I can grow facial hair much easier than my tall acquaintances which is something I know they would also die to have. Of course, height is a big factor in attractiveness as it is associated with dominance and masculinity, but that is only what it is, a factor among thousands of others. There is also humor, smarts, creativity, kindness, smell and many more. Use these to your advantage.

Be yourself and height will be the last thing people will think of you, which I'm sure that not many think about as you are already at quite an average height. Make sure to excel at everything else in life instead, cheers! And maybe take a pause from the height stuff. It may be good to clear your mind from it if it makes you feel worse.
Greg said on 16/Aug/19
@Canson well I’m just stating my opinion it’s also not fair here for Nik to be talked down and insulted by other posters for simply being himself, I am not telling Rob he has to do a mandatory deletion of the comments he is the site master he can do whatever, even if I did he wouldn’t listen to instruction as such and that’s perfectly fine.
Greg said on 16/Aug/19
@Avi My dad wasn’t standing properly in that photo he was definitely over 5’10. Though I can see how you would think 5’9 range. I think 5’10.5-5’10.75 perhaps if not 5’11 peak. My dad did lose a lot of height before he passed I’m sure he dropped to 5’9 range by 60’s possibly to even a flat 5’9 due to medical issues and poor posture + height loss combined. Yeah my dad was a big guy growing up he was very slim but after the army he put on some muscle and was lean but eventually he let himself go and was just kind of husky. My dad was also really active when he was younger playing sports and stuff and exercising.
Greg said on 16/Aug/19
@Ajax also you contradicted yourself or maybe you are just mentally retarded not sure but I might have to agree with the latter I never said I dropped to 177.9 Bruh where are getting that from? Is what I want to know you sure you aren’t confusing your height with mine? I’m I’m 178.5 at a low even at an extreme low I’ve never dropped below 178 which is still over 5’10 flat. But then again I’m talking to somebody who’s as dumb as a rock here so why bother? 🤷🏻‍♂️
Greg said on 16/Aug/19
@Ajax yeah that’s not the only thing you can’t get over, your inferiority complex just the fact that you are obvlivious to common knowledge I already mentioned I didn’t measure correctly you are acting as if you never made a mistake in your life Mr. Perfect over there. Mistakes happen that’s part of being Human so what I over measured by 1/4th of an inch oooo big deal sue me 😉. Point is I have my facts straight now but obviously you don’t.
Greg said on 16/Aug/19
@Khaled sounds like your issues are more broad than your height. If you where 5’0 maybe I would understand but 5’9? Give me a break dude you probably live in a country with a tall average but even then you’d be just below average not short even in say Dinarc Alps or Amsterdam. You aren’t worthless you are just average not short or tall unless you’re really 5’7 and not 5’9 which even then you would be between kind of short and low average. Everyone has insecurities but there’s more to life I think you just have a negative out look in general.

@khaled taban said on 15/Aug/19

Well if you really are 5'9 I don't think you should feel that bad

I can see 5'6 or 7 maybe but you are average area.

When I was 5'9 I obviously didn't feel tall but only guys towering me would be 6'2-6'3 guys which aren't super common.

And most girls will still be shorter than you.

I do understand that it's relative but also keep in mind many times we feel more shorter than we are

For example a 5'11 guy to you may feel 3 or 4 inches shorter but reality it's only 2 inches so not that much.

Hi rob just ask to the main question.How many inches is your eye level?

It depends on if it's level or not...if it is quite straight towards a camera then it's somewhere around 4.5-4.6 range, but remember slight tilt down or up adds a fraction.

I dunno from what culture you come @khaled taban but in Europe 5ft 4 is considered a well balanced height, even for young women.
Usually in women, it is adversely to be tall or very tall - unlike for men.

@Nik Ashton, tell me, what makes you think that 5'9 "is a good height? Yes I agree statics says 5'9" is an average height in many countries ,but that does not necessarily mean It's good height , for instance ... 5'4" is average height for women in the US , now people there would call a 5'4" woman as short or "petite" , It's not a good height for a woman , despite It is the average height.

Hi rob just ask the question that if someone person's top of the head is around top of the hairline of other person then what is the difference between them
Editor Rob
It could be as little as 1, as much as 2...but overall between that range is quite a common start of the hairline. Under 1 inch would mean a bit of hair receding, over 2 inches is quite a low hairline.

I think having a half inch smaller head would proportionally probably be a closer fit for the average 5ft 8 guy's head size. I still have about 5-6 pounds I aim to lose, I want to hit 150 flat and stay there.
cmillzz said on 15/Aug/19
A lot of these studies are based on not only self reported heights, but also heights listed on driver’s licenses, which 99% of the time are inflated, and a good proportion of these so called “measured heights” aren’t barefoot heights either. Many will be in footwear during these measurements, and also be taken earlier in the day, which will skew the average towards a higher mark than it really is. That’s why I’m a bit skeptical of these statistics. I used to think the average was higher because I had a tendency to inflate people’s heights IRL. But now, it seems pretty clear to me that the average is no taller than 5’9 in the US.

I wake up at exactly 5’11 and drop to 5’10.25” lolol. That’s not 177.9cm that’s 178.5cm, but you probably are retarded I’m 5’10.5” in the afternoon and that is what I will go by last time I checked you’re a troll so you won’t be able to dictate my claim try again though.

@cmillz 176.5cm is average for all races/ethnicities in the 20-29 age group. You have to remember that whites and blacks still form an absolute majority of the population, so they'll skew the general average upward.

If you were to extrapolate that average by race, whites would be 178cm, blacks about 177cm, and Asians and Hispanics would be around 172cm.

Your dad looks almost 5'10 maybe 5'9.5 area if stood up straight. He seems similar build to my dad.

My dad is 5'8.5 now but I'm fairly sure he was in the 5'9 range peak. I sometimes think he may have actually been 5'9.5 in his 20s and 30s. In his 60s he lost at least 1/2 inch.




@Connor Simpson
Though you may be right I don't think you should call anyone an a$$hole here.

I have had disagreements with people here but I try not to get down to that level and if I want to defend myself I do it in a witty way not with profanity.

But as Greg said best not to even bother just ignore posters you disagree.

@Rob I saw your video about Converse All Star, they give you 1,8 cm

But didn't they give 1,5 cm? I remember reading here that and even I measured mine and it was 1,5 too
Editor Rob
The Hi-top I was measuring (Chinese factory) gave near 1.8cm. Insole is quite firm.

I have a few other pairs: Click Here.

Black and red one is a lo converse ox shield (Indonesian factory) that has a more spongy insole than the hi-top, but still givess 1.7cm.

The next black one is a standard lo converse from the Vietnam factory, gives 1.7cm.

Last one is a converse I have been wearing over last couple of years. I just measured it and it's just about 1.7cm too. The insole and outsole have held up well. That's an Indonesian made one.

There does seem some subtle differences in the insole firmness between different versions.

If we’re talking just whites, I can maybe believe a 176.5cm average. But if you include ALL ethnicities? I can’t even see it hitting 5’9.
cmillzz said on 13/Aug/19
No way average is 176.5cm for all ethnicities in the US.

@Rob Paul: Do shoes lessen in height over time?(because of deterioration) I mean like the height they give you. For example, I have worn a shoe for 2 years and it has been exposed to terrible weather conditions, rain etc., and many basketball sessions. I feel like the shoe is getting shorter, not giving me as much height as they used too. I'm not shrinking btw, I'm not even 20 lol, to put that out of the question.
Editor Rob
The amount they fall varies. I just did a video today on my Nike Arraw's.
Brand new in 2007 those gave in the 1.1-1.2 range. Even after a ton of wear, in 2019 they still measure just about an inch. I never seen a Nike like that model last as long as it has...I'd put it as my favourite sneaker of the last 20 years, and I've worn a ton - do a lot of walking, burn through a lot of models.

Then you have something like a Nike SB. I had a a pair brand new they measure 0.75 or near it, after a few weeks of wear they were barely over 0.5 inches...insole compressed a fair bit. They lasted about a year before the back started falling apart...

I think converse sneakers hold up well, the outsole/insole are quite durable and better materials than many other sneakers. I've had converse last years.

I also remember a pair of Merrell vibram I measured brand new at nearly a full inch...but within 2 months they lost about 1/3rd, the sole compressed down a fair bit.

@MD Whats your problem? Nik has done absolutely nothing wrong, hes a nice guy unlike you youre an a**hole, all he was doing was posting some comments on the site like everyone else, which they were completely harmless by the way and he didnt nothing to you and he never insulted you, so if you haven't got anything nice to say then dont say anything at all, you didn't have to reply to him and you could have just ignored his message.

People like you are toxic, you shouldnt even be on the site, if anything Rob should have told you to not be rude to Nik and be respectful to him aswell and to other posters on here, and oh yeah Nik is a males name get your facts right, youre also pretty dumb arent you?

Anyway you need apologize to Nik right now, what you did was uncalled for.
Goel175cm said on 13/Aug/19
@ Importer, Nik, Christian 6'5 3/8 and everyone
The top 10 populated countries in the world are as follows:
(For age 18-35)
China - 171.5cm (18.4% of worlds population)
India- 166cm (17.75% of worlds population)
USA- 176.5cm(for all ethnicities) (4.27%)
Indonesia - 163cm (3.5% of worlds population)
Brazil- maybe 173-74 keep it as 173.5cm(2.75% of worlds population)
Pakistan-167cm(2.65% of the worlds population)
Nigeria- 170cm(2.6%)
Bangladesh-164(2.2%)
Russia- maybe 178cm(1.9%)
Mexico- 169cm(1.72%)
so i multiplied average height and its share to the worlds population like this
171.5*18.4+166*17.75+176.5*4.27+3.5*163+173.5*2.75+167*2.65+170*2.6+164*2.2+178*1.9+169*1.72=9777.61
divide it by their share to the population it is 57.74%
average height of world for young men= 9777.61/57.74= 169.33cm.

Hey Rob How tall does my dad look here if he straightened up? Far left Click Here often he’s loosing height in photos and what do you think his peak height might have been? He was already in his 50’s there and had terrible posture. My grand father was about 5’7 range peak and was down to like 5’6.5 by then I believe my mom was 5’3 range peak.

A chance of near 5ft 10 range, it depends how much he has lost (both lean and age-wise)

Actually your eyebrows are "supposed" to be 4 to 4.2 inches below the top of your head.

So at 6'5.3 I would expect 6'1.2 to 6'1.3 area.
6'1.6 is high. That means you your eyebrows are only 3.75 inches below the top of your head.

So Canson at 6'0.4 would be the average.

My eyebrows are a little over 4 inches below top of my head.
Prog King said on 12/Aug/19
@Canson mine looks to be around 173.5 cm, i measure around 183-184 at night. So approx 10 cm as well. Also i am wondering do you or anyone think tape measures generally a bit inaccurate? As i feel when measuring against the wall(did rough measurement using mirror for eyebrow height) there may be error because it is hard to keep the tape perfectly straight. But i believe i am a 6 footer still

@Importer I'm never guessed at my actual height by anyone, Im always guessed as being taller, probably because I'm quite slim and I have fairly long legs for my height so I get guessed at 6'1 and 6'2 by a lot of people, it just goes to show you that 6'0 is a pretty tall height.
Connor Simpson said on 11/Aug/19
@Miss Sandy Cowel Hi Sandy I'm pretty sure my morning height straight out of bed is between 6'0.5 and 6'0.75, I'll have to check it again one day to know for sure, although I remember measuring it a few minutes out of bed and my last measurement was 6'0 5/8ths but it wasn't from getting out of bed straight away.

5'11.5 is in a grey area, it can be tall at times but really it's 2.5 inches above average so to me it's not quite tall but it's getting there, i would class it as tallish.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend too Sandy, as always it's lovely to talk you, bye for now 😊👋

Rob,

I see you do not have the comedic duo Lou Costello and Bud Abbott on here?

They were very popular

Lou Costello listed at 5'5 but definitely was 5'3-5'4 zone.
Bud Abbott at 5'8 looks maybe 5'7.5

At some point do you think you can add them?
Thanks!

@Questioner I think 5’9” could be a global average for young men. I agree that with @Christian 6’5 3/8” that for men of all ages the average is 5’7.5”
Bobby 178cm said on 11/Aug/19
@Questioner

I don't see the average being anywhere near 5'11 even by the standards of young people. It also depends on what country we are discussing but since height almost always winds up being related to the U.S average, then the average is still 5'8-5'9. It's not about how often you see 5'10-5'11, it's about what the actual statistics have to report.
Greg said on 11/Aug/19

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/Aug/19
@ Connor - I agree that 6ft is a tall height, even looking at it from other people's perspective. Obviously, even 5ft9, my boyfriend's height, seems relatively tall to me, especially now being that bit shorter than in my youth, but I know that it is an average male height.

At a push, I'd say that 5ft11.5 passes for tall, bearing in mind that those this height will wake up measuring 6ft+.

What is your height when you first get out of bed, Connor? There has been plenty of discussion going on about your lowest height, and not anywhere near enough about your highest!

Thanks Connor and cheers! I hope you're enjoying your weekend. 😁👍📏❓

@ Ben - I even think that it could be 5'7"'! 65% of the men in the world could be under 5'9"!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/Aug/19
@ MD - I don't think there is any call for being so heavy handed with Nik, who is MALE, by the way. He does use two different devices, but has never pretended to be anyone other than himself. Nik is an open book, and there is no fakery to him.

The reason that he jots down statistics is so that there is a comparison record for the months and years to come. He has explained this to me. Nik has an unusual and debilitating skin condition, making day-to-day living extra work for himself and his Mum. I started writing to him shortly after I started visiting the site and I found his honesty about himself very sweet so now I communicate with him and chat over the phone.

Nik loves this website and is truly fascinated by height. He is always asking me how tall the people were when I have been out! I'm sure if you had asked him nicely to cut down on the emojis, he would have done so. Life is too short to pick holes in one another, so I think you should endeavour to get on, especially with people with the same interests as you.

Kind regards,

Sandy Cowell.

@Nik
Lazar99's likely just trolling. It would've been more believable had he not said that 5'9" is no different from 5'4". 5 inches is obviously a big difference.

----------------------

it is not only that . he says that 3 inches is a big difference hence why 6'0 and 5'9 are very different but at the same time he says 5'9 and 5'4 are the same but they are 5 inches apart lol

and also it is not only about the fact that 5 inches is a lot but 5'9 is in the average range while 5'4 is a lot less than average . as cmillzz said the difference between even 5'6 and 5'9 is different than 5'9 and 6'0 even though both are 3 inches apart ...why ? because at 5'9 you are in the average range and have a medium height while at 5'6 you are short ...so even if 6'0 is taller next to 5'9 it is still different . let alone 5'4 and 5'9 .

I am 5'9.25 and when I am with my friends who are 181-182c , 184cm and 189cm even though they are of course taller than me it is not the same as if we had a guy next to us who is 5'4 . he would stick out but I dont stick out among taller men because I am around average height

Nik said on 7/Aug/19
@ c-mo - Older men and men from all ethnic minority groups are part of the male population so they should be included.


------------------------------------

I dont include them . why would it matter to me what height 80 year old grandpas are ? and by including people from other countries you are bringing the average down too and it gives a wrong average

according to that logic you could bring millions of indonesians into netherlands and then the average height will be 5'8 :p lol

Rob, Nik Ashton/Nik seems to be posting under two names, now, and all she is doing lately is stating how many comments/votes have been posted to that point and/or posting a lot of useless smilies. This is adding nothing to the board, and is quite distracting. Can you tell her to cut this out, please?
Editor Rob
It might be different devices Nik was using, as every few months the cookies are 'reset' so you have to enter name again.

I always welcome comments that relate to height.

A comment like 'I like her hair' on it's own isn't adding much, so you are right that some types of comments can be seen as distracting.

I read a lot of comments that are well-meaning and completely inoffensive, but many of them are deleted - so I'm seeing a lot more of those than visitors will ever see.

Maybe letting some through isn't so bad, though I would recommend if somebody was adding a comment like 'I like her hair', maybe include something about their height.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Aug/19

The problem with that method is that there are some countries and cities where every race is equally represented, which means all races have around the same percentage of people living. Let's go with Chicago for example. Chicago has around 32% white, 32% black and 29% Latino, so you can't base the average of Chicago on only one race.

Connor Simpson said on 8/Aug/19
Rob this is random but me and Greg have been talking to each other on Facebook and we were having a debate about my height, would you call me a legit or solid 6 footer?

I'm between 6'0.5 and 6'0.75 out of bed and later on I'm down to 6'0 for the most of the day and at night I shrink to 5'11 7/8ths, in my opinion I think solid would be someone who doesn't fall below the 6'0 mark at night, in my case I do I'm 5'11 7/8ths at my low so I would place myself in the legit category, what do you think? Greg classes me as solid 6'0 range
Editor Rob
Well it's good to see you are on talking terms after last year!

I'd call you a legit 6 footer, because you can as you say fall a little shy of it.

But considering a lot of folk are lying about their height, a fairly sizeable proportion of the population will view a true six foot guy as being taller.
Connor Simpson said on 8/Aug/19
@c-mo Exactly so 6'0 is a tall height overall.

Rob, I was a bit surprised to see how thick the 720s are. You’d be looking closer to 5’9 than 5’8 in public with those on.
Editor Rob
Yeah If you wear them out and about (even after a few months) they'd probably still be about 1.5 inches, which is very big for a sneaker.

That 720 is not as popular a seller as the 270's, which I think were one of the biggest sellers in 2018...to be fair, the 270's look a bit better I think in person, though for me the comfort feels the same.

Although I'm not wearing either of those in 2019. My model of choice for every day wear this year has been the Nike Flex RN 2017, which I found was a great fit for my feet and very lightweight...though the materials for light sneakers means they don't have long lasting durability.
Connor Simpson said on 8/Aug/19

That’s just about a solid 11cm difference since both are a bit under the marks. But even that height comes to my eyebrows so I consider it tall. A well proportioned 6’0” always passes for 6’2” lol just as I pass for 6’6 a lot whether I want to be taller or not and I don’t want to be any more than I am as it’s tall enough
Nik said on 7/Aug/19
@ Lazar99 - How can 5'9" be a short height? 50% of men are under this height so nothing can make it short. It doesn't matter how many women are 5'9" or over because 50% of men are under 5'9", so it ain't short.

5'9 is a decent height for a man . it is not bad at all . wtf are you talking ....

@Ben . no problem man :) you were not rude . you didnt offend me at all

@Csimpson6ft

in most of the world the average is actually less than 5'9 . in a lot of countries in the world the average height for men is several centimeters below 5'9 .

but for european males ages 18 to 45 or maybe 18 - 50 the average height is around 5'10

I calculated the average height for europeans from a site that seemed pretty accurate and I calculated an average of 178.8 or something like that I dont remember fully but it was something around that . and since I am assuming the measurements were earlier in the day it seems 5'10 give or take a bit seems accurate . I also saw a site that gave the average height for young european men as 177.6cm . around 5'10 is bang on average for non elderly european men it seems

----------


@pov

some of the averages you are giving seem a bit too high for me I doubt that the dutch have a 6'1.5 average and that the scandinavians have a 5'11.5 - 6'0 average . especially not when we are talking about evening heights

Hi Rob,
I saw a site which suggested that the average height for 21 year olds is 5ft 9.8ins or 177.4cm. As I've read a few times on this site that the average for young guys in the UK is 178cm, I was wondering whether the figure of 177.4cm was accurate or whether the average has gone beyond that now for young guys.
Editor Rob
In the UK it has varied over a few mm range, but getting hold of all the figures for each year the 'national health survey' is published isn't so easy.
cmillzz said on 7/Aug/19
@C-mo
Yes, 5’6 is on the short side, but it’s not super short.
cmillzz said on 7/Aug/19
The difference between 5’6 and 5’9 definitely seems more striking to me than the difference between 5’9 and 6’0, despite both being 3 inch differences. 5’6 guys tend to have short proportions that you don’t really see in 5’9 guys. 6’0 men, while solidly above average don’t tend to have the same “tall” proportions that you see in 6’2 men, if that makes any sense.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Aug/19
@c-mo
If you don't specifically say only ethnic European men of a certain age when you mention the average height of a country, that creates confusion. I think I've heard you say before that the US average is 5'10", but you didn't specify that it was only young and middle aged white men. Obviously the US average isn't 5'10" when you include men of all ages and races.

Yes , 5'9" is 3 inches shorter than 6'0" , and 3 inches isn't a small differnce at all.
There are tons of 5'9" girls ,but I could barely see any girl +6'0" in the US (for every 99-100 girl you see one 6'0 or above).
Being 5'9" is no different from being 5'4" ,both are short as hell for a man.

says that 3 inches is not a small difference but says 5'9 is no different from 5'4 despite 5'9 being 5 inches taller than 5'4 . nice logic

I am 5'9.25 and I neither feel nor look short . 5'4 and 5'9 are worlds apart . the average height for ethnic european non elderly men is 5'10 . saying 5'4 and 5'9 are the same is ridiculous xD but I guess you are trolling

@Tunman Physically Conner looks atleast 6'0". I believe when he say his absolute low is 182.6cm cause in the photo he doesn't look 182 range at all. He has that Peak Nicholas Cage look if you ask me, who I believe was not below the 6'0".

@c-mo The average height isnt 5'10 everywhere though, in most parts of the world it is actually 5'9 for men and 5'3.5 for women and theres no way 5'10 is generally only average, it's actually above average/at the high end of average in most situations, bang on average is more like 5'9 and maybe even 5'8, i respect your opinion but i strongly disagree.

@cmilliz,5'9" is short IMAO , 6'0" is above average by 2.5 inches ,while 5'9" is half an inch below the average.
It's a horrible height for a man !
Ben said on 6/Aug/19
@mrfunnyguy - Just my observations. I feel above average. Average height in Sweden could be 178 aswell but there's no way the average white man in europe is 178. Everyone would call you tall at nearly 6'1" (which is a height you claim to be If I'm not misstaken) in Sweden and at 6'2" nost people would call you very tall. I know 2 6'2" guys and most people they encounter call them very tall and guess them to be 6'4".

Oh please, 5’9 men can actually feel tallish in some situations.
Nik Ashton said on 6/Aug/19
@ Lazar99 - How can it be when tons and tons of men are UNDER 5’9”?
Canson said on 5/Aug/19
@Christian: did the person who say that (5’9 is short 6’0 not tall), lie about his height or did he not just bring it up? A legit 6’0” even to me is tall.

@Josh B: Oh man so how tall is Brendan Fraser? Has he lost height?

@Csimpson6ft

lol so you agree that the average young man is 5'10 ....just like I said . and I dont see the point to include old men . whats the point of that ?

I think even if you include men up to 45 years old or so the average is 5'10 for a european man

as I said I also dont think it makes sense to include immigrants unlike they are from northern west asian region since we are also caucasian people (even though swarthier haha) ...I mean like I said : why would I care if I am tall in indonesia or peru or vietnam or bolivia or whatever ....it doesnt have any relevance in my life and the majority of people where I live are ethnic germans or other europeans and also many west asians . I dont include ethnic minorities who come from short countries ....as I said not because of racism but it doesnt make any sense to include them

I mean if we are at it then I could say I am tall at 5'9.25 because of that ....when I stand next to certain people from certain countries I am a lot tallerthan them

Rob whats my true height? I have 2 cm difference, between stadiometer and tape measure. and i measuring myself at the same time always
Editor Rob
As long at the tape measure looks to be intact and not damaged, then that may be the accurate one.

if you managed to get the tape measure and hold it beside the stadiometer (when you pull the stadiometer bar down to say 5ft)...that should tell you if the stadiometer is giving 2cm difference.

Hey Rob, would you mind sharing the schedule (exact time) the celebheights comments are updated/refreshed ? I noticed that on weekends you take a break, which is very fair :)
Editor Rob
A typical (UK time) day for me:

Wake up between 5-6am.

Do some work within 10 minutes of wakening. Be it moderating comments, researching heights, editing pages, coding, promoting...there's lots of different tasks in trying to keep the site ticking along.

At 8-8.30 I would take a walk to the shops for daily messages with Jenny, back for 9.30-10.

Have breakfast, a bath, then from 10.30-12 do more work.

12-1pm Lunch while watching a tv show.

1-2.30 head down to parents with messages for them and any work they need done I try to help.

2.30-3.30 Go out with Jenny for a walk.

3.30-5.30 more work on the site.

5.30-6.30 dinner and tv show.

6.30-9.30 Sometimes watch tv/movie or go out somewhere but if I'm at home I would maybe do a little bit more work on the site, not that much though about 30 minutes or so.

Some days I may well not manage much moderation because other tasks become more pressing.

Only rarely will I go a day without doing anything, and that's usually because I'm on a trip somewhere or doing an event with Jenny.

Yes , 5'9" is 3 inches shorter than 6'0" , and 3 inches isn't a small differnce at all.
There are tons of 5'9" girls ,but I could barely see any girl +6'0" in the US (for every 99-100 girl you see one 6'0 or above).
Being 5'9" is no different from being 5'4" ,both are short as hell for a man.

@Connor
even if you're 6' it's still a very small eyelevel.Like 4 1/8"if I'm not wrong.Again I'm not claiming to know better than yourself but your head seemed quite well proportioned and not that small.If your eyelevel is 4 1/8"and your eye chin is like 5" it would appear quite clearly.I would have thought my father has the same kind of head (and about the same height)as you.Standing with head perfectly at level it could seem 4.4-.5for eye crown and 4.6-.7 for eye chin for a head about 9.1 which is average but slightly small for a 6'.Again you know better but judging from some vids your head gave me the same impression as his.Don't feel offended if it's not the case.
You might not have raised your head consciously but an involuntary raise like 0.25-0.5 might go undetected,just stating my opinion of course.
mrfunnyguy said on 5/Aug/19
@Ben Not to sound rude or anything, but I'm pretty sure you are not very good at estimating people's heights. There is absolutely no way that an average swedish guy is below 5'10.

@CD
Well that depends on how severe his injury was. But from the looks of it, it's likely that your friend was never 181 to begin with. I've never heard anyone losing that much height from simply damaging their soft tissues.
Ben said on 5/Aug/19
@c-mo - Nah, I call that bs saying the average young white guy in Europe is only a cm shorter than me. 176? Yeah I might buy that but I wouldn't go any higher. I tower over too many for it to be so close to my height, especially when I went to London. In Sweden the average guy is 5'9.75" from my observations, include immigrants which is now like 40% of our country and you find out it's more 5'9" bcuz the immigrants are like 5'7" barely on average. In London it was about 5'8".

@ ajax509 - Featherstone, Pontefract, and Castleford, are exactly the same.
Csimpson6ft said on 5/Aug/19
@c-mo Just because some sites have the average height down as 5'10 it doesn't mean it actually is, not all surveys are accurate. Well ive seen way more 5'8 guys walking about than 5'10 guys, besides you're only talking about the average height for the young generation and you're not taking the average height for all ages of men into account which is supposedly 5'9 but im inclined to say that it actually is 5'8 because ive seen a lot more men at that height, theres even more 5'7ers than 5'9-5'10ers. Even if the average isnt 5'8 and it really is 5'9, 3 inches above it is enough to be considered tall. The average height for young guys is 5'10 yes, but for all ages no it isnt it's 5'9.

Even more ridiculous is Khaled saying 6’0 is tall, but 5’9 is “very short”.
