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 ยพin. For some height-related videos check out my Youtube channel. As of December 2018 my weight is 165 pounds and measure close to 5ft 8.25 at lunchtime.

@Rob If a wall is wonky how much would it undermeasure you by? A few mm's maybe?
Editor Rob
depends on how bent it is. Some walls might have bowed a bit over the decades...I've seen some houses with walls that could give 1cm variation in heights because of the curvature!

@ Tall In The Saddle - An answer-comment that well thought out deserves a decent reply, but I haven't a clue, as usual, what I am going to write about! So I have closed the door so that we have a bit of privacy, and you have my assurance that your name's undercover meaning won't go any further!

It occurred to me because I usually jot down the celebs I comment on and include the visitors I reply to. Any names such as yours get shortened, and yours spelt out the name of a small reptilian flying creature. Now whatever is wrong with that?

Now for a little tale:

When I was 5 or 6 and my brother 7 or 8, my Dad and his girlfriend took us out for the day. We were all sitting on a train and my brother was sorting through his tea cards, which those days came free in packets of tea, complete with a picture and information of the member of wildlife on the back, which was a lovely way of getting kids interested in species of animals. The particular series they were doing at the time was British Birds, and my brother was sitting on the large back seat of the train showing the people his bird cards and mine as well, because I collected them too. Suddenly he came out with, "...and that's a Great Tit and that's a Blue Tit, but my sister hasn't got any tits yet, but I think you can send up for them and Daddy will buy her some tits for her Birthday!"

All said in complete innocence, he couldn't understand why everyone laughed!

Have a lovely weekend, Tall In The Saddle!

Cheers, Sandy ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ

@ At Nik - Oh, but they are keeping that wayward phone of mine re-charged throughout his prison sentence, or he'd be able to sleep his way through it!

For extra punishment, they have put him in a separate cell, because they caught him entertaining his fellow prisoners, and word has it that they were using him to bring contraband into the prison. He has denied everything, of course!

Have a superb weekend - and the same to your Mum and ๐Ÿฉ Jasmin!

Thank you Rob and canson for your inputs it makes more sense now. Looks like I'll be giving myself a height upgrade again

He may be a cell phone and he may have been charged but I doubt that he will be charged in the cell!

I would say they are quite normal looking, hi-tops generally do look like that.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 14/Dec/18
Rob, if my normal low is 186.7 CM tall, with my out of bed height being a bit over 189 CM tall, would it make more sense to claim to be 186 CM tall, or 187 CM tall if someone asks me how tall I am in a foreign country that uses the metric system? I spend most of the day standing at the 186.7 CM mark, as my shrinkage generally happens within the first four hours of me being awake.
Editor Rob
186 is playing it very safe. If it were me I'd just go with the 187cm figure if somebody were to ask.
Bobby said on 14/Dec/18
@Canson

That method makes one seem shorter than they are. Using that method, I appear 1-inch shorter than if I actually measured myself against the wall. So, 5'10.5 suddenly seems closer to 5'9.5 in the morning, and 5'9.75 seems like 5'8.75 at night. This is usually when I hold it like 1-2ft in front of me. It's definitely not accurate.
Minh said on 14/Dec/18
@Rob

Would 184cm be very tall or just tall for an Asian, particularly Vietnamese? Would I be tall in the US or UK?
Editor Rob
for Vietnamese, very tall....and in US/UK, you would be viewed as a tall guy. 9 out of 10 guys will be shorter than you.
Arthur! said on 14/Dec/18
Rob, why is it that I reach my low more often now than in the past? I used to stay at around 178.3-4 at night but nowadays I drop down to 178.0-1. I checked my morning height and it's still the same, 180.5 cm. Only thing that's changed is that now I wake up 3 or 4 hours earlier than I used to.
Editor Rob
It's possible your hydration levels have changed due to different sleep habits.

Either that or somebody has got a Voodoo Doll of you in a vice and is doing the slow "Arnie Compress" ๐Ÿ˜จ

Rob if someone is listed on a profile for example as โ€˜6โ€™3 190cmโ€™. Would it most likely mean there the full 6โ€™3 or 6โ€™2.75?
Editor Rob
It depends on the country and how they are storing the figure (metric or imperial), they likely will store one and show the other as converted.


What do you mean store one and show the other converted?
Editor Rob
You might store height data in a database as either metric or imperial, then when showing the other value, you are converting from whatever it is you use.
For instance I store it all as feet/inches and display the converted metric beside it. So depending on rounding, some people could display 6ft 3 as 190 or 191.

Rob, if you saw someone on the street, would you be able to assign them at the correct height +/- half inch 100% of the time? ALso, do you think more in terms of centimeters or inches?
Editor Rob
The margin of error increases on the street. Guessing heights might have a bigger margin than if you were standing around and on flat ground. I think getting to within half inch is more possible on solid ground if you have time and see somebody beside others to help...even then, there will be situations you will (regardless of how good you think you are) over or under-estimate.

Hey @gylfi_G

How tall are you now and how tall you were at 16 and 17 ?
Canson said on 13/Dec/18
@James694 and Rob: Iโ€™ve actually put the tape measure behind me and seen where I come up on it (kinda like Jeff Cavalier just not taped to the wall). Iโ€™ve thought the opposite that I was taller closer up than further away. But thatโ€™s not as much the case because itโ€™s the view. I can see over the top of my head from the distance (because of the mirror I have in my bathroom) whereas I cannot see exactly where my head touches it if Iโ€™m standing 2 feet from the mirror

@rob where do you think does tall height starts,some say 6 and some says 6'1.and what do you think is most attractive height for men can be?i personally think any where from 6 to 6'2 is attractive.
Editor Rob
I'm sure in surveys, desirable height of 6ft 1 or 2 is a common choice. In the UK/US when you get near 6ft you are tall.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Dec/18
@Rob

I can relate to that. Height is the most common topic people bring up when they first meet me, more often than even clothes.

@Canson

I've never been measured in shoes at a doctor's office myself, but personally I know some people who've been.
Tall In The Saddle said on 13/Dec/18
@Sandy Cowell - well now that you have deciphered me - you are sworn to secrecy - keep this just between you and I and no one else.

It was the only way I could fly under the censorship radar whilst still getting my POINTS across!

I like to play my cards close to my CHEST.

The real truth is that I myself only became ABREAST after the fact - after the fact being the very moment some time back when I was thinking of abbreviating my moniker for the sake of convenience. When I saw what it would spell out.....well suffice to say I had a change of heart lest I not be taken seriously and dismissed like other board BOOBS.

So it is Tall In the Saddle I REMAIN and T-TS to anyone else who prefers otherwise.

All said in jest of course.

Rob in what position should we sleep to optimize the spine decompression and get the highest morning height ? (I know this is off Ethan's topic but I didn't know where to post this comment, sorry)
Editor Rob
If you can manage to sleep on your back with 1 pillow for 9 hours, without contorting the spine, you might hit optimum morning height. Most people sleep in several positions though.

Rob, how much of the population do you think lie about their height?

It might vary between countries. I don't know exact percentages, but I would say it was a healthy amount.
James694 said on 13/Dec/18
What would be a absolute low for a 5'9 1/4 guy?
Editor Rob
I think many people give a height around lunchtime, so a fair chunk will still fall a fraction under that...if you gave your height around that time (and measured 5ft 9.25), you could drop to near 5ft 9...

Then you have others who claim out of bed, in that case they could fall to 5ft 8.25-8.5, though I personally don't give a morning height as my height.

Canson said on 12/Dec/18
@Bobby: I think 1โ€ is ok in some cases but I actually see a lot of people that wear 1/2โ€ or 5/8โ€ of footwear as well. Flats or canvas shoes and Sometimes even less than 1/2โ€ in a pair of ballet slippers etc. Then at the opposite end, some with even more than 1โ€ or 1.25โ€ if in some boots or Air Maxes. This doesnโ€™t account for orthotics being added or at the other end of the spectrum, insoles being removed. That said, I think itโ€™s best for them rather than guessing and being lazy at the same time, to just have them remove the shoes as like you said, it only takes a few seconds. This will prevent them underestimating someone, as well as overmeasuring them at the same time. Either could affect BMI or other medical attributes. I think in the time it takes to โ€œproperlyโ€ estimate the heel in each shoe a patient wears and how much the shoe adds to the personโ€™s height (not taking into account any additives such as lifts), you may as well just go ahead and have them take them off. Doctors and nurses are among the upper echelon of jobs and salaries in the world. They should do it right and โ€œearnโ€ their money imho. I heard the part before from Rob when he mentioned that they do that to save time and due to people touching shoes with their hands, more sanitary. While I agree with Rob on that, I feel that it is a bit lame on the part of the HC professionals

Hey Rob!

Do you want to know what really gets on my nerves? OK, here goes: sometimes I see a Random Celeb come up who I'm interested in and then I carelessly brush against the screen of my phone - and the picture of the celebrity disappears! More often than not though, it's a CAT'S PAW! ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿˆ

I am mainly viewing the site on a desktop, but of course sometimes view it on a phone too...which can be sensitive to movements, especially random paws!
Greg said on 11/Dec/18
@Lurm youโ€™re a weak 6 foot guy seeing you wake up at 6โ€™0 and end the day at 5โ€™11.25โ€ I think your best bet would be to claim the middle figure and say 5โ€™11.5โ€ or Almost 6/Around 6โ€™0โ€
Canson said on 11/Dec/18
@Tall in the Saddle: I agree also on the weight part. If you see some heavier guys they will go out of their way to make sure their physical is early AM to get a lower weight some even know height will be more. They would be quick to take them off for weight but not for their height lol
Canson said on 11/Dec/18
@Tall in the Saddle: Iโ€™ve seen both. Iโ€™ve seen like Christian said, them measure in shoes and give them that measurement with no deduction. My wife received it. Her previous physical said 5โ€™9โ€. Sheโ€™s not even a solid 5โ€™8โ€ in reality. She is exactly 172 cm at a low. Sheโ€™s honest however and claims 5โ€™8โ€ and she calls people out when they lie as well. Then it happened with me when I went once they told me that they would estimate the heel. Long story short I said itโ€™s easier to just take them off and then did so before the measurement. But I donโ€™t get why they donโ€™t just make everyone take them off. You could have someone measure early morning at say 5โ€™8.25 barefoot measure in some thick shoes and get a measurement of 5โ€™9.75 or 5โ€™10 and be listed that way yet theyโ€™re not even 5โ€™8โ€ in the afternoon. Even an afternoon measurement can result in that same person being 5โ€™9โ€ or more in shoes

@ Christian, Tunman and Tall In The Saddle:

Just over a year ago, I was measured during a hospital out patient's visit. I said, "Surely you want me to take my shoes off?"

The young nurse replied, "It's entirely up to you!"

Huh! I want my REAL height!
James694 said on 11/Dec/18
When in measuring in front of a mirrior why do you get a taller result far away and a shorter one up close I measured myself this morning farther away from the mirriorI got 5'10 1/4 then up close 5'9 5/8ths what would be the real height the closest is probably a few feet a desk is in front.
Editor Rob
Personally I wouldn't really use a mirror...but if you are quite close and hold a tape in front, since your eyes are 4.5 inches or thereabouts lower than the top of your head, you might end up thinking you are a fraction smaller than you are....the further away, the less that effect can be.
Tunman said on 11/Dec/18
@Tall In The Saddle
Yeah,wouldn't have said better,but besides this one should see the psychologial side of the subject.I mean why do people want to be taller or less overweight in the other case?Confidence boosting of course,but why insisting on what one is not?It's not like a 5'7 is going to turn 5'9 because he claims so.Society is of course heightist (and also weightist),but it's always better to be genuine,after all height and weight are among the most simple aspects of a person,nothing comparable to intellignece,kindness,friendliness and so on.
In the end I know it might be difficult for some persons to accept that,but one should try not to think much about height (outside this site of course),I don't think most persons look to other people for their height (well except maybe giants and dwarfs),most other people heights are entities among millions like them.
gylfi_G said on 11/Dec/18
Hey Rob. How much height do you think these boots give? They claim to have a 3.5cm heel which is above most boots(other claim to give 3cm usually).
Click Here
Editor Rob
Yeah that's a pretty thick boot, I can see it giving 1.5 inches, as the insole is likely just above the stitch line.
Canson said on 11/Dec/18
@Christian: happened to my wife. She was told 5โ€™9โ€ because she measured in sneaks. She was also measured in the morning probably around 2-3 hours after waking if I can recall meaning she would still be solid 5โ€™8โ€ at least
Tall In The Saddle said on 11/Dec/18
Well any doctor worth his/her salt shouldn't be measuring patients in their shoes - and if he/she does knock off 2cm to an 1 inch from their in shoes height - then the adjusted height is what he/she should be telling their patients.

Medically a barefoot baseline measurement is important for a number of things - not the least being the determination of a healthy weight range-they say for every inch over 5 feet men can add 6 lbs while women can add 5 lbs - of course frame has to be factored in also. Also accuracy is required to determine undue height loss which may be indicative of conditions such as osteoporosis

Heel sizes will vary and that's not to mention people who wear hidden lifts - I guess they might wear same to their doctors also - now that makes me wonder what percentage of the population wears lifts? Any ideas on that Rob?

Finally I don't think it's big deal to slip the shoes off - I bet the same people who wear shoes for their height measurement are more than willing to lose same when it's time to weigh in - best of both worlds - lol.
Lurm said on 11/Dec/18
Rob if I measure 182.8cm out of bed and 180.6cm in the evening, would it be unreasonable to claim 181cm?
Editor Rob
To me, that sounds a rather reasonable mark to tell people should they ask.

The more taller you are, the greater the odds increase that people will ask your height. A 6ft 4 man will be asked his height 10 times as often as a 5ft 9 man.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Dec/18

I've seen some doctors who would just measure their patients with shoes on without subtracting 2cm.

Bobby said on 9/Dec/18
@Tunman

Most people are wearing 1-inch shoes on average. So, all you need to do is account for that difference. Like, if one guy is measured 5'11 in shoes, he's 5'10 barefoot, most likely. It's really not that difficult to do, and it's easier than telling people to take their shoes off all the time even if it only takes them a few seconds to do so.
Robby Harris said on 9/Dec/18
@Rob: Do you feel short or average, or even tall at 5'8"? It seems many feel short, but in truth, it's not far off average for Western men..
Editor Rob
If I think about it, usually in general it can feel within average in the UK, but there are many times with clusters of taller people you could feel short too...far more often than you might feel tall, which can happen at moments!

Tunman said on 9/Dec/18
Rob,shoes aren't a part of the body so it doesn't make sense to claim such height.I mean what if wearing boots or shoes with lifts or even heels for women?I once heard a doc speaking about measuring patients in shoes then knocking 2cm but I don't agree much with that method as it doesn't take into account that some may have roughly 1cm shoes while others up to 3-3,5cm.
As for barefeet height,I used to claim 178 back in 2010-2011 when I first knew about the difference between morning and evening height.Technically it wasn't that big lie neither,since I always clean that mark out of bed (generally by 2-3mm).I hardly remember any occasion where I could have looked as pushing it too much with that claim since even tall people are sometimes adding 2-3cm to their height.
Editor Rob
Of course it doesn't make sense and isn't our actual height, but many people do claim it and probably don't think anything of it.

Rob,would you say that all people who boost themselves by a single inch know they're shorter as the day goes by?
Imagine you have a dude waking up at 5'8.8"and dropping to 5'8 flat by night.What if he gets measured at the doc's office 1 hour out of bed and turns 5'8.5" then claims 5'9,maybe it's only rounding up a measurement?Not that big lie imo.
Had G measured 5'7 flat first time you met then such an explanation would have been plausible.Of course he didn't.
Editor Rob
If he isn't aware of shrinkage, then rounding up wouldn't be too much...but if he measured 5ft 8 in the afternoon and rounded up I think that's pushing it.

What percentage of people truly know about morning or evening? I couldn't say exactly.

I suppose some people also don't think anything of claiming a height in shoes, and don't see it as lying.

Not that I've ever noticed, though temperature changes can effect bathroom scales so you might end up with slightly different weight measurements because of that.

Hey Rob!

I've been offline all day, and I was about to phone my mobile helpline when Jim showed up and told me that it's like that up and down the country with people with O2 services and its subsidiary companies. I've finally got my internet back, so I could send along the comment I wrote out this morning on Maggie Q and couldn't send, so I scribbled it down in shorthand for later.

It's great to be back! I have seen two fantastic films, and I'm awash with ideas and have encountered new actors and actresses that I haven't really taken much notice of to date.

Cheers Rob!

Yeah everybody hates outages. I've not had one lasting a day for years, but in the past there were times when I had 1-2 day outages. When you work online that is tricky, as you need software and tools that you simply cannot use on public internet cafe's.

Genetics is the biggest factor. A lot of genes will influence height, and there's random factors which result in bigger differences at times. Also if you have better diet/health you could end up near your genetic potential, whilst your parent may not have quite reached their potential.

@edwards.

I would go with 180cm with his stats, or 5'11. Especially if he's hydrated and goes down to only 179.5cm, then a 180cm claim isn't unreasonable. I wouldn't think too much about it. Most guys would claim 5'11 with those stats if they're honest.

is it short for my height or just normal? this is when I wear my jean, a put off pair would give around 80 or 81cm
my height 180 out of bed and solid 178cm at the absolute lowest.
how much is your inseam at solid 173cm??
Editor Rob
If it was 76-77 range I'd say short for a 178cm man, 78cm is probably between short and average range. Mine is in 77cm range.
The inseam length with men will typically look shorter than women for obvious reasons...I'm certainly not a guy who yanks up his trousers so that his voice rises a few octaves. I tend to like room to breathe! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

@rob my brother has a confussion.he has a morning height of 181 and at night he has his lowest at 179 or may be 179.5 if hydrated.but on average day he has lowest at 179.what height should he claim?can he claim a weak 5'11 or can he claim almost 5'11
Editor Rob
He's an honest 5ft 10.5, and for a portion of the day near 5ft 11. Some guys might just round up to 5ft 11, others might go with low of 5ft 10.5 and some claim 'about/almost 5ft 11'.

Hi rob, what time did u weigh yourself? And what time is best to weigh yourself? For accurate weight estimation
Editor Rob
If you are going to weigh yourself and keep track of it, I think you have to choose the same area, time and feet position for accuracy...even temperature changes could effect readings slightly with bathroom scales.

@Rob: How long do you expect to be running Celebheights for? Personally, I think this is one of the best sites on the net!
Editor Rob
Well I'm glad you enjoyed visiting it. 14 years into this site and I'm surprised I have lasted this long, mainly because I have lost interest in topics in the past and moved on.
But I have no immediate plans to hang up the tape measure though! ๐Ÿ˜‰
It's been harder over last few years because 6 years ago Jenny stopped working.
She did start to do crafting, selling cards etc and that has helped her. I help out with that too, and it worked out for both of us going to conventions, being able to do our our dealer table and I can still get photos.
Jo?o Pedro said on 3/Dec/18
Hey, Rob! If I was measured at 181 centimeters after one and half hours of workout, what is my real height? I mean, what height should I claim when asked?
And also, as a 18 year old from Brazil, am I tall? I would appreciate an answer. Best of luck!
Editor Rob
You are getting into tall range in Brazil, if the average is 5ft 7-8 (170-173) range.
We all have a morning and evening height. I think giving a height after being up several hours is reasonable. Personally I wouldn't claim a morning height because from 6-7am till mid-day we lose a massive amount of our height compared to 12pm till 8-9pm.

Hey Rob!

It's fantastic to have you back! It seems like an eternity....

I've been watching a lot of 'Silent Witness' episodes and seen so many chances for write-ups. I have still been guessing at the actor's heights and seeing if I've been right! I got Ruth Gemmill's 5ft6 right, but I also wanted to see if she is related to Coronation Street's Tristan, but I didn't find anything conclusive.

Anyway, it's back down to commenting as usual, thank goodness. I'm so chuffed that I will be sticking my Christmas tree up today! Have a happy and magical December Rob, Jenny and one and all! ๐ŸŽ„

@Bobby: I think at 6โ€™4.5 at a low I would go with 6โ€™4 1/2. I think if my โ€œnormal lowโ€ is much in excess of 3/8โ€ I would go with 1/2โ€. If 6โ€™5 1/2 I would probably go with 6โ€™5 or a bit over. I prob wouldnโ€™t round up (without saying the fraction) until I got to about 3/4โ€ over. Now in your case, I would say 5โ€™10 like you do or โ€œabout 5โ€™10โ€ because at your low, you are much more 5โ€™10โ€ than I would be 6โ€™5โ€ and barring the extreme low for you, you would look 5โ€™10โ€ more than 5โ€™9โ€. Even at your extreme if itโ€™s only 1/8โ€ below, thatโ€™s not anything that is going to get very much less. Based on where you fall you could wear a good orthotic and probably get passed it all together and come out around 5โ€™9.75-5โ€™10 range all the time even at the extremist of lows for you (worst case 5โ€™9.75 probably). A good orthotic with the right pair of sneaks or other shoes brings you to 5โ€™11โ€ more than likely (in footwear). The problem I have with the half (as i mentioned to Dream today too and also in the past) is that itโ€™s not used properly. I think someone measuring a bit over a 1/4โ€ (talking 1/3โ€ over or 3/8โ€ up to maybe 5/8โ€ or up to maybe 2/3โ€ not exceeding) should claim half. Half is just unfortunately rounded up so often when it should be its own entity. So a guy with close to Gregโ€™s stats (if his normal low were a few mm higher) should claim 1/2. Even with Greg, heโ€™s a mm over 1/4โ€ from what he mentioned. People claiming half however are often viewed as pretentious.โ€™they expect to see you round all the time.
George F said on 28/Nov/18

@Salz: I donโ€™t mind 6โ€™4.5. I still do claim it sometimes and think itโ€™s cool actually but have heard the why donโ€™t I round up or why do I claim the half both ends of the spectrum. If I were 6โ€™5 1/2 at a low however I would say a bit over 6โ€™5โ€ or 6โ€™5. I wouldnโ€™t want any part of being called 6โ€™6โ€. I even prefer 6โ€™4 over 6โ€™5 as Iโ€™m closer to it
Zampo said on 27/Nov/18
@Ben: Out of interest, which club, Malmo, AIK? Your post reminded of me of a time when I wanted to be a soccer player. I remember at one point scouts at Crystal Palace FC were interested during a Southern London tournament, our coach had told me they were impressed with my performance during the group stages. Annoyingly we got knocked out in the next round where there could have been a real opportunity to showcase my ability (didn't have a great game in that match as well). I was also invited to a Chelsea FC training camp at some point as well but by age 15 or so I had lost interest in chasing the football dream. In retrospect, doubt I would have made it to the highest level though, lacked that drive and maturity in understanding what it takes, at that time.
MrFish said on 27/Nov/18
Rob, at 174.7-175 at my lowest, could I reach age 70 and stay above the 173 mark (1.5-2.0 cm loss), if I remain in good shape?
Editor Rob
If you remain active and keep up some forms of exercise, and do some basic stretches long-term, eat well, avoid injury it will improve the chances.
Bobby 5'10 said on 27/Nov/18
@Canson, so if you were a minimum of 6'4.5 at a low, would you claim 6'5, or just say you're 6'4?

I think the condition is hard to diagnose so perhaps they could have it.

Sakz said on 27/Nov/18
@Canson The other question would also be whether you like claiming a fraction or not. For me I find it to be a bit too precise so I prefer to say 'about' or just round to simplify everything like most do. If you were 6'4.5 at a low but didn't want to claim a fraction then rounding up or down would be fine aswell. It honestly just depends on what you're comfortable saying or sometimes you just instinctively claim something when asked (it's happened with me).
Matt99 said on 27/Nov/18
I thought he was 173cm range but maybe 174 was possible but thatโ€™s the maximum Iโ€™d go.

Hes now apart of the inflation gang too. Plus I think heโ€™s a lift wearer outside the fitness area. Is it possible to list him on this site?

He is a possibility, he wants to be remembered as 5ft 10 and change.

Ops sorry Christian I didn't see your comment to me until ...almost 3 months later...

Yeah, I only play soccer bcuz it is fun and I like messing with the opponents' temper, it gives me thrill but I keep that on the pitch. It's also a great way for me to learn how to be calm in heated situations bcuz I'll (hopefully) join the police academy after high school where they'll break me down anyway so I might as well prepare myself.

When I was younger however I took soccer extremely serious and Sweden's biggest club had their eyes me but I got tired of soccer. I now take bodybuilding seriously and love being a part of the bodybuilding community, natty of course.

@Rob: how old is Jenny if you donโ€™t mind me asking? Is she about your age? Thatโ€™s a lot of height loss for someone 40ish to have lost half inch. I canโ€™t remember tho if she had something to accelerate that height loss
Editor Rob
Over last 6 years when she took up crafting full-time it has caused more curvature in her cervical vertebrae due to the nature of her crafting work, bent over a desk at unnatural angles. I think I'd say overall it's nearly 5/8ths total loss from age 42 to 48.
Canson said on 26/Nov/18
@Zampo and Sakz; very well said! I agree with everything you said. I claim 6โ€™4 for that reason as I donโ€™t feel like being rounded up from 6โ€™4.5 to 6โ€™5 and feel Iโ€™m closer to 6โ€™4โ€ than 6โ€™5โ€. I think if I were 6โ€™4 3/8 upward to 5/8 I may go with 6โ€™4.5
Matt99 said on 26/Nov/18
Rob how tall do you think Jeff Cavaliere is? In his recent video, he measures his height and hits 5โ€™10.5 but we never see his feet during the measurement...I think he gave himself a little boost by either standing on a plank or lifts. Heโ€™s never looked 179cm in his life. More like 5โ€™8.5 174cm.
Editor Rob
I think given he made a video with that NFL player (who actually was 178cm), it is unlikely Jeff was the same height, let alone taller...he looked nearer 173 than 178 with Antonio Brown.

Just enough to go with 5ft 7.75, on a more exertive day a bit under that... but she's not been measured for a while now and probably will just do one a year to keep track of any future loss or if she is stabilised a bit.

184guy2:

On that celeggiety guy, although we can't see footwear. I had a quick look at how he compares with a few guys at my height range e.g. Tyler Hoechlin, Chris Evans and Ross Marquand (where I would be more confident about how certain ranges look with one that at height). Thus, I would peg him roughly in the weak 5'7 range.

Sakz said on 26/Nov/18
@Canson Yeah basically for me claiming a height you don't measure at all is real 'inflating' or 'downgrading'. Adding or subtracting an inch would also be a true example of those things. As for rounding people use it differently and while it is up to them because I believe any height afternoon-evening is acceptable, I think it's best to round up or down depending on what you're nearest to (so in your case 6'4 if you don't want to claim the 1/2).
Zampo said on 26/Nov/18
Rob, I'm now interested in how you perceive height with those in a similar range to yourself. One of your height videos "How tall is Gemma" I believe. What would you have estimated her at and what type of listing would she have been put at on this site (assuming she was a celeb) before she stepped underneath the stadiometer, where you found out her measured height. Assuming you were 173 cm at that moment, I would have put her at a solid 174 cm based on how she looked next to you.
Editor Rob
I think her hairstyle was around half an inch thick that day, I was surprised she thought she might be near 5ft 10 though. If she stands with good posture she generally looks around 174. I mean look at Jenny and Gemma here, jenny's shoe was about 3mm thicker than Gemma, but that day I couldn't tell them apart: Click Here.
Then when Gemma had a 2 inch range boot and bigger hair, she can look taller: Click Here. She did get some photos at conventions with us, as we went to 3 or 4 events together 10 years ago, but I don't even think she has them anymore.
Canson said on 25/Nov/18
@Sakz: in some cases if someone measures say 6โ€™3.75 or 6โ€™3 5/8 normally but gets an extreme low measurement of 6โ€™3 3/8 and knows no better I donโ€™t see an issue. Itโ€™s the same as someone measuring 6โ€™3.75 or very early morning is a better word for it and claiming 6โ€™4โ€. You just get two different perspectives there.

@Christian: yep I agree.

I read a story about a guy nearly 70 who was trying to claim a lower age...I'm sure others saw that.

Well, I think the same happens with height - but some might not be trolling or pushing the boundaries of common sense (like the age guy is attempting)...and they genuinely think and convince themselves they are a certain height.

Zampo said on 25/Nov/18
@Canson: Well thought about (and good) point made there, I think that's why regarding claims I have always advocated for a lunchtime height to be claimed as I feel it fits in well with overall the measured population average. "A little over 6'4" would be a good claim. I would be more inclined to claim 6'4 rather than 6'4.5 if I was in your position, generally because of how often I would hit a extreme low due to my lifestyle. However, having said that a 6'4.5 claim wouldn't be unreasonable (quite fair in fact). The only issue I would see with it, is that a good proportion of people would naturally round you to 6'5 if you claimed 6'4.5.
Zampo said on 25/Nov/18
@Christian: Cheers!

@Sakz: Indeed. Photo's can only be near precise when judging the "exact" height of someone at that particular moment, some details can be lost as you've said. It's a great starting point for a discussion though. To be fair, celebheights would probably end up being quite boring (but an easier moderating job for Rob) if we all came up with ranges one could measure within. Most people would agree with each other. I guess its what keeps guessing estimates interesting.

@Rob: I saw where you had Big Lewis in the YouTube video where he was 5โ€™10.25. did he have a footwear advantage when you stood back to back? That looked more than just 2 1/8โ€. I wouldโ€™ve said 2.25-2.5 but maybe it was hair or the angle

Editor Rob
We have no footwear in that video. In most of that video there's near 2 degree tilt on Lewis side, you can see it more when the white Ceiling Coving is seen.

Of course doing a back to back I dropped a cm more height for the pose.

There is a Difference in back to backs, I'd say the majority of poses I have a natural tendency to drop height than stand military. It varies with celebs too, sometimes it can be pot luck how they might pose in that manner.
Canson said on 24/Nov/18
@Zampo: I feel the same way. I think even a person measuring a full half is able to round down to the nearest (say that person doesnโ€™t want to round up). Iโ€™ve seen that before with some that may be a bit taller. In the 6โ€™0 and over group Usually itโ€™s in keeping with others. A guy measuring 5โ€™11.5 will want to round to 6โ€™0โ€ regardless of when the measurement is so a person measuring 6โ€™2.5 at a low deprives them of that. Thatโ€™s the real issue. As far as 6โ€™4.25 I always round down and some days Iโ€™m even a mm or so over the mark. The biggest thing is when you get (shoes aside) someone 6โ€™1.75 morning height or a few hours awake and then they come to 6โ€™1.5 then I get to 6โ€™4.25 we would see a 3โ€ difference and thatโ€™s where I brought up downplaying for purposes like that because not everyone measures a low (outside of CH). Iโ€™d say taking the lying out of it, that itโ€™s a mixed bag as to when people measure. But I will say a morning measurement an hour or two out of bed or so looks at least remotely close to an afternoon height compared to someone claiming shoes as you would see them as being maybe within half inch of their claim and assuming theyโ€™re rounding
World Citizen said on 24/Nov/18
Hey Big Rob, I am around 5 ft 7.25/ 5 ft 7.5, what is the female equivalent of my height?

There is some variation between countries when comparing male and female average height. Overall though, around 5ft 2.5 range might be an equivalent.

Yeah, 5'8" is extremely hard to believe for that celeggiety guy. I'd say 5'7" range too. He gets towered over too often.
Sakz said on 23/Nov/18
@Canson Claiming a height you don't measure would be downgrading so in your case 6'3 or anything under 6'4 (same principle for inflating). Anything other than that is just rounding either up or down. Any height you measure either afternoon or evening is valid and as Zampo said outside of celebheights people won't want an exact mark but rather what you typically measure near or 'around'. It's important people be able to distinguish celebheights from real life.
MrFish said on 23/Nov/18
Rob, at almost 5ft 9in, Iโ€™m about 176 lbs. Iโ€™m aiming at 165; do you think that would be best?

Well I'm near 2cm smaller and currently just shy of that range and feel 160 would be getting reasonably trim for me, so 165 seems a good aim for yourself. But people do have different builds and muscle mass.

@ Rob - Re: ๐ŸฆŠ โฌ…๏ธ These fellas!

Foxes are all over the show where I live as well! On dustbin collection days, they have an absolute field day, sprinkling mess up and down the road for which my poor cats get the blame! ๐Ÿ˜ค

Although their population has increased steadily over the years and they are bolder and cheekier than ever now, I distinctly remember a frequent visitor to the family dustbin from my childhood. Every Monday night, when the remains of Sunday's chicken had been thrown away, the fox would make a colossal great noise, knocking the metal lid off and rummaging, littering the garden to his heart's content. Then one dark Monday night, my brother emptied the pedal bin from the kitchen, and the fox jumped out at him! He was terrified, and thereafter refused point blank to empty the kitchen rubbish on Monday nights! ๐Ÿ—‘๏ธ

Baseball listed heights are sometimes even worse than basketball. I find it more common for baseball players to get inflated 3 inches than for ballers.

@Zampo

Excellent point
Sakz said on 23/Nov/18
@Zampo I agree with that especially what you said in the 2nd paragraph. This is why it's best to go by a range rather than a specific height especially as we're just judging based on photos. I find it hard to believe such small fractions can be detected by a photo alone because like you said there's so many factors involved to negate such little differences. Then of course there's the other matter you mentioned which is they may already be at their low so there's a lot to consider. I guess all this is also what makes estimates interesting.

@Canson:

Personally, I genuinely think some of these phrases are misused, I don't really see how a 6'4.25 person later in day claiming 6'4 is "downgrading". In this world how many people would measure exactly on a mark (or a couple of mm either side), I doubt up to 10%. Most people just want to know roughly whereabouts one measures. Those that want a precise measurement will seek for you to further elaborate on a 6'4 claim. One needs to remember the celebheights community is probably representative of 0.01% (no exaggeration here) of society. The average person would logically expect someone to round down or up appropriately.

6'5 3/8" (77.375") is 196.5cm if you do the conversion. And from my perspective, 6 foot seems short, but it's tall compared to the average guy.

Iโ€™m in kinda a different boat as I lose my height fast like you do. Iโ€™m down to around 194 or a mm below after only 5 hours and lose another 2-3mm
Editor Rob
194cm wouldn't be an unreasonable claim, but how many folk in America understand it.

In the UK, I'm surprised how many people have no clue about metric. Most still seem imperial-minded when it comes to height.

Hello Rob!
I have 2 question
1.
These heights are mesured in the morning/afternoon or night?
2.
I saw your comment about height surgery in this Quora topic: Click Here
Can you say more details about this? Because I searched up but I found only leg shortening, and this is limited, not 6 inches.
Thanks for your answer.
All the best!
Editor Rob
Height shortening is something that seems extremely rare and not in practice - you won't find it publicized much at all. In that women's case back in the 1960's, she died at age 62.
Canson said on 21/Nov/18
@Christian: to your comment a while back about 6โ€™4โ€ guys claiming 6โ€™6โ€. There are some athletes such as Brad Brach where Viper showed the article where he claims to not even measure a full 6โ€™3 yet listed 6โ€™6โ€ then a guy like tyreke Evans is listed 6โ€™6โ€ yet he measured a solid 6โ€™4โ€ early morning meaning he could be closer to 6โ€™3โ€ in reality than 6โ€™4โ€

Zampo said on 21/Nov/18
I see Rob's listings as a starting point for a discussion and he is in the best position to assess the height of a celeb he has met due to factors such as being able to assess footwear, seeing them interact with others and most importantly his experience gained over time. However naturally there will be some biases.

I have a suspicion that good proportion of listings (maybe 25%) would actually measure 0.25 inch below. It is virtually impossibly to distinguish 0.25 inch in motion. Indeed, if you mark 5'9.75 and 5'10 on a wall, you can clearly see the difference but in reality where there are varying footwear, walking postures, hairstyles etc. In fact it is very easy for even a measured 5'9.75 to look taller than a 5'10 flat. That's why on can't pinpoint one's height in person rather you say "this person looks 5'11 - 5'11.5 zone" and from there you "try" to narrow this and select the most appropriate mark based on other evidence. Rob has stated he tends to go with his upper estimate hence there is an automatic systematic bias.

There will then be some random biases (less common), e.g. you meet someone at 10 am in the morning and they look 6'1.5 flat however you never knew they have just spent 40 minutes cycling to work hence they are near to their low already, whilst you think they will most likely lose another 0.5 inch.

To summarise, I reckon celebheights is the most accurate database for listed heights on the web but as expected, no can say for sure someone will measure this height or not unless actually measured (far too many uncontrollable factors).

@Rob: at 6โ€™4.25โ€ late in the day is 6โ€™4โ€ an adequate claim? Iโ€™ve seen you say if you that itโ€™s downgrading
Editor Rob
The question is in the real world what would claim - precise or just round off.
"Just over 6ft 4" might be a quite accurate claim.

The taller you are, the more often people might bring up the topic of height in your presence, and ask you.
Nik said on 20/Nov/18

Hey Christian 6'5 3/8", seen you commenting on here for awhile; you seem to be good at judging heights. Are you yourself 195 cm? If so holy sh*t mate... Do u think 6 foot is tall at your height?
Ud191cm said on 20/Nov/18
Hey Rob,

I'm planning on becoming an actor, now since its an South Asian entertainment biz and there are height restrictions, should I downgrade myself on my portfolio to about 6'1 or 185cm and would it seem believable reasonably on the portfolio? So far I haven't come across actors over 6'2, many 6'4 guys either get bad guy roles or supporting roles in the epic dramas.
Editor Rob
I'd always try to be truthful in what you put on a resume. Of course being truthful could hurt your chances because casting directors might overlook anybody over 6ft 1 or 2 and you never get the chance to audition for a role.
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Nov/18
@ Rob - I had to check that my weight loss was real, (it sure felt real!) and found a bonus quarter pound had come off. I wouldn't want to find myself back in that weighing-every-day lark - I've been there before! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
Editor Rob
Yeah, it's good to get to healthy weight range. Some people have genetics which help retain slim figures, others seem to pile on weight.
Andrea said on 19/Nov/18
I'm sorry, Christian, but there's always a limit to opinions. When someone keeps guessing almost every celebrity much shorter than they're listed at/look, especially with no evidence or based only a few bad pics, it's hardly an opinion to consider them bad. And unlike viper (who just randomly calls me "terrible"), I could make an endless list of reasons(-estimates) why he's one of the worst height "guessers" ever on here...
Tunman said on 19/Nov/18
Rob,do you think that a person can genuinely not know he/she is shorter by 12-13cm than another one?
In the neighbouring grocery works a family (actually sisters).Among them 2 twins and they definitely look alike...except that one is around 172 the other more like 159-60.When I told the short one I reckoned them only due to height difference she answered simply that they're the same and that her sister has just bulked up.I didn't say anything more as I wasn't going to bring the height subject but I seriously wondered how it was possible not to notice such difference.It would be like Casey Affleck saying he's the same as Ben but Ben looks taller because he has put on weight.I reckon that sometimes it could end up giving a bigger impression like 2 or even 3-4cm if you include some hair but 13?
Editor Rob
Some people genuinely will have trouble guessing height, others will be 'at it' and attempting a wind-up.

You can usually understand 3-4cm being 'the same' to some, but 12cm seems a joke really!
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Nov/18
@ Rob - I should have said Category rather than page! Sorry! ๐Ÿคฃ
Sakz said on 19/Nov/18
@Andrea I agree with what you say there. I've said before I trust Robs judgement more simply because he's met a lot of celebrities and seen them in person, meaning he's more likely to have a better understanding of what they would measure thus guess their height fairly accurately. If there is enough evidence to suggest a celebrity isn't over or under a mark but someone still guesses them higher or lower, then it would be understandable to question them especially if they provide no evidence. One thing I will say is a site like this can certainly help someone become a better judge of height overtime, as is the case with me and I'm sure a lot of other people.
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Nov/18

Rob, when measuring head circumference do you really want it as tight as possible to where it is really squeezing your head, so itโ€™s almost uncomfortable or just so it is compressing hair? I get 23 inches give or take a quarter inch, is that below average?
Editor Rob
I think tight enough so hair is compressed. You might end up stretching the tape a bit if you tighten too much.

@Andrea:

Your first paragraph, agreed. Your last point is an interesting one as I was never really thinking about those kind of posters. I have indeed seen some ridiculous estimates despite Rob having included the mugshot lines, footwear details etc as a guide (I'm talking about at least an 1 inch + off). I usually just categorize such posters as trolls so I've never taken them seriously.

I'm sure at times genuine estimates can be seen as trolling.

Hey Rob, i know this is a little off topic but I've been curious about this for a long time i am 179.5cm in the morning and 177 by night how much you think should i claim when someone asks about my height?
Editor Rob
Let's say you never bothered much with height and have an appointment at 11am. The nurse measures you close to 178cm and you will happily say that. There are many people who barely get measured more than a few times in life and they will go with the height they get told or measured at whatever time it occurred.

In your case 178 is not unreasonable, but 177 would mean barely anybody would ever think you lied about your height and would see you as pretty honest.

@Andrea

I've never seen Viper making that comment, but thanks for letting me know. But Viper being one the worst height guessers is merely your opinion and not a fact, just like Viper saying that you're a terrible guesser is merely his opinion. Like Rob said, it's not a competition, so none of us should strive to be the "best height guesser" or anything like that. It's stupid and it's not what this site should be about. But going back to the "no clue" thing, tell me, what have I ever said that indicates me of not having clue about height differences?
Andrea said on 16/Nov/18
I see your point, and I agree, Zampo. I think the closest thing to a measurement we have is how tall Rob estimates celebrities to be WHEN he meets them in person. And although they're still guesses, I'm quite confident that they are very close to what those celebrities would measure (some more, some less, but overall within 1 cm, I'd say).
That being said, while I also agree that it's all quite subjective, there are always degrees of believability. And when someone regularly "guesses" celebrities much shorter (or taller, because, unlike someone else, I make no distinction between "downgraders" and "upgraders") than what they're listed at, especially when there's enough evidence that they cannot be as low (or high) as that, I'm sure you do realize that it's hard to even take them seriously...
Sakz said on 16/Nov/18
@Zampo It's actually interesting you bring that up. From what I've seen a lot of it seems to be based on an individuals self perception and if other guesses align with their own as Rob said. If someone generally tends to estimate a celebrity quite near to where they are likely to measure or how they look in photos then they would be considered 'good'. However it still doesn't take away from the fact that nobody is 100% right or wrong because they're all still guesses, it's just some are better or more logical than others. That's the main thing to remember. In fact Rob is really the only one on here who's height we don't need to guess because we know it for sure as we've seen him measure it.
Rick1 said on 15/Nov/18
Hi Rob, only mentioning this since someone mentioned leg lengthening surgery below - I have read articles about people voluntarily amputating their legs - i think some people do this because they have a body integrity disorder or something but potentially having bionic legs or something similar could be another way to make you taller? Also - whats your take on these people who claim to of gotten taller by extreme stretching (after puberty)
Editor Rob
Yes, Body dysmorphic disorder is a mental disorder.
I think a few people have managed to attain optimal posture and maybe even the routines helped their discs ability to retain more fluid, so they don't reach the low mark they used to.
Allie said on 15/Nov/18
Hi Rob! Just wondering what female celeb has the most comments ever? And what about male?

I saw Taylor Swift and Emma Watson and they both had around 8 pages but itโ€™s nothing compared to Sylvester, Arnie and Tom C!
Editor Rob
I think those 2 girls are probably some of the most commented. Many of the wrestlers had tons of pages, and Arnie/Tom overall probably had more (though at times they had some comments trimmed as the amount was too much).

@Jdubbz what pat of the US are you from :/ land of the giants?

I'm from Europe and stand just slightly over 6' and when I was in the US state of Kentucky for a month I felt much taller there than in Europe,I would say I was taller than 80% of males I walked by,where as here in Europe(Western Europe) taller than about 70% depending on age range
Zampo said on 15/Nov/18
Hmmm...how does one even assess whether someone is good at estimating height, when at the end of the day all listings are guesses? I'm struggling to even think of a criteria.

Maybe, you could a base it on one's level of logical explanations used? or possibly how one is "rated" by other posters. It's still all subjective though. I don't think I've ever actually thought to myself that "I am good at estimating height" or "I get 90% of my guesses right". All, I know is I am relatively satisfied with my approach to estimations.
Editor Rob
I would say accuracy is being based off self-belief and whether other guesses align with a person's own estimates.
As we know, very few (less than 0.2 percent) stars on this site even have any mention of a measurement having been done, and it's mainly sports people.

Hey, Rob! I think we must have the same sort of scales because I can convert mine into stones and pounds, pounds alone and kilogrammes. Funnily enough, I always use the '140lbs = 10 stone' method myself!

I'm so pleased with my โญ๏ธ New Height โญ๏ธ,
but as I was measured before I did anything to wear myself out, would it be sensible to assume that I might dip to a bit below that after a day's exertion? It's only right to face facts. I know that I am well over 5ft1 now and nearly 5ft2 at best, and it will be many a long year, God willing, before I find myself at 5ft or under again. Do you think my before bed height might be below 5ft1.75? I have to face facts! I always went by my tallest ever height and rounded UP, hence I put 5ft3 in my passport!

Thanks Rob! ๐Ÿ˜
Editor Rob
Well a taller height also means a lower BMI. Your before bed height may not be that much less than what you measured.
MrFish said on 14/Nov/18
Rob, with a low between 5ft 8.75 and 5ft 9 depending on the day and at 21 years old, what would you classify me as, given that I live in the US? Short? Below average? Average? I'm trying to find a good adjective to describe my height.
Editor Rob
In general terms, you are an Average American. In the younger age group, maybe on the slightly lower side of the average range, but I would never call almost 5ft 9 short for a 21 year old.
Anonynon said on 14/Nov/18
Hi Rob, I just want to say I ran into you from your quora posts.

You were the one who taught me about morning / evening heights, so thanks for that.

I have an unusual question to ask you. Would you personally consider limb lengthening surgery if you were under 5'5"?
Editor Rob
It's a big sacrifice, but many see the time, money, pain and possible complications as worth it. Personally, I wouldn't consider it.

@Rob about out of bed I remember with the blue stadiometer you got 175.0 in 2014, that stadiometer gave extra 0.2-0.3 cm so you must be 174.7-174.8 out of bed
Editor Rob
With good conditions like a proper sleep for 8-9 hours I could get close to 5ft 9 on the old blue stadiometer, but normally it was a bit shy of that mark...and once you knock off the small error, 5ft 8.75 range is more typical.
Canson said on 14/Nov/18
Yes To be fair, Viper guessed Merriman at 6โ€™1.5-6โ€™2 or max 6โ€™2 when some here guessed him 6โ€™3-6โ€™4 or 6โ€™4 flat. He is no more than 6โ€™2โ€. He also guessed Paul walker accurately and many of his other estimates for athletes are good. So if he is bad at estimating height then the 6โ€™3.5-6โ€™4 guesses are flat out horrendous, sorry. That just shows that not everyone will perceive height the same way and that what one โ€œperceivesโ€ as โ€œsenseโ€ and โ€œlogicโ€ may only be that way to that person, not others. Thatโ€™s why itโ€™s best not to critique someone elseโ€™s guesses because someone will never know when it is them making a bad estimate. Nobody is 100% accurate here. Just speaking the truth. Even if 4 out of 5 times youโ€™re right the other 1 may have been whiffed

Sandy Cowell said on 14/Nov/18
@ Rob - I always have to sit and convert weight into stones and pounds, so you are 11st10 now and feel best at 11st4/8. That's very sensible; everyone has a perfect weight, and you clearly know yours. It took me years to succumb to a sensible and happy medium!
Editor Rob
Yeah, it's a little bit frustrating that we don't have universal and singular units of measure for height and weight.

My scales have been set at lbs for years, but they still have the KG and the stones/lb option too. Jenny was never sure about what pounds were either, she was more a Stone/lb girl...but as long as we remember 140 pounds is 10 stone and 14 pounds per stone, it's not too difficult to get a rough idea.
JamesB172cm said on 14/Nov/18
Rob why not lift heavy weights and get up too 200 pounds?

That said heavy weight lifting can cause height loss I suppose
Andrea said on 14/Nov/18
I'm not bragging about anything nor saying I'm perfect, but I'm just stating a fact, whether you like it or not, Christian. And I did it just because viper not only is one of the worst height "guessers" ever on here, but he even has the nerve to randomly say that I'm terrible, LMFAO. Plus, he's the one who claimed to be "the most accurate poster over the years" in the first place (LOL at that), but of course you say nothing about that, proving once again how hypocrite and inconsistent you are.
As for me saying that you have no clue about height differences, I don't know how many times I've already told you that, but that was right after certain comments you made, that only someone who has no clue about height differences would make, in fact. The fact that you got triggered so much and that you keep crying about that goes to show that deep down you know I'm not that wrong...

Rob how does your wall measurement compare with your seca 213? Is it the same? Wall gives more or less?
Editor Rob
A straight wall and level floor will be very close. But there is a 1mm error with the printing - the inches are accurate (when compared to a tape measure held beside it), but the person who aligned the metric beside the imperial got it off by 1mm.

Well I'm not the one who goes around bragging about how "my estimates turned out to be true when Rob eventually met them." I've yet to see anyone else here brag about their "height guessing skills" but you. Even Rob himself doesn't brag, and if anyone has the right to, it's him.
And you've accused me of "having no clue about height differences" many times, so why shouldn't I have the right to say that your estimates are far from perfect? Are you saying that you're a perfect human being?
Editor Rob
It's not a competition, we are all trying to guess height and ultimately provide visitors with a reasonable estimates.

I've mentioned about height ranges before - that's one useful thing about seeing people in person, sometimes you can get a better sense of what end of the range they might be, or even if the height needs adjusted, especially when dealing in 1/4 to 1/2 inches.

@Linke 6'4 men don't feel exceptionally tall in the US (at least in most areas). I'm slightly taller than that and I see people my height and above every single day.

Editor Rob
A true busting a gut with good condition might get me near 5ft 9, but normally it is a fraction less.
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Nov/18
โญ๏ธ Rob! You have lost a cool 16lbs since I wrote that Limerick of you, which I came across this morning, so WELL DONE!
Editor Rob
Well I'm not quite shrinking away, I still am a few pounds above my ideal.

@ Christian 6ft5 3/8

I know I am fortunate to have been offered the cancellation, and I was mighty grateful. The shoes would have been a waste of money as I was virtually bed-ridden, and the times I ended up a heap of nothingness on the floor when I scrambled out of bed I simply lost count of!

The Queen Mother had a hip replacement operation at 95, but that was at the recommendation of her doctor. It wasn't
an emergency, but to enable her to walk with greater ease. Therefore some operations are less urgent than others, and mine fell in the urgent category.

Cheers Christian and enjoy the week ahead! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Would a 183cm/6ft man feel exceptionally tall in India, like the equivalent of a 6'4"/193cm guy in the West?


In Rural India yes. In Urban areas, not quite. Considering how huge and diverse the population is, 6'0 is definitely tall but not out and out tall. More like 6'2 guy in the West.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Nov/18
@Sandy

You're pretty fortunate. A lot of people in your situation would've had to walk around with one leg being shorter than the other. I've known some people who had hip replacements had leg discrepancies.
JamesB172cm said on 11/Nov/18
Rob is it not impossible that 6ft3-6ft4 guys exzzagerate and claim 6ft6?
Editor Rob
Of course it is a possibility. Being tall, doesn't exempt you from inflating your own height to make yourself feel better and sound more impressive to others.
Andrea said on 11/Nov/18
LOL, to be honest, I didn't even think it was such a big deal, but since Bobby seems to be so sensitive EVEN about it, I'm just messing with him a bit. And I must say it is quite entertaining, LMFAO.
Editor Rob
Sometimes the line between a bit of teasing or sarcasm and an insult is a very fine one.

Not everybody has the same level of sensibilities. To one person, some teasing can feel like bullying.

Nothing is funnier than Andrea thinking he's good at height estimation.

You're terrible, as others can attest to.

@Andrea

I told you, my feet are at an average length. You can't refute my arguments, so you're attacking my character again. How sad. Now go away. Unlike you, I don't go around harassing users on here but you seem to live for starting petty drama. I think you need to have your brain examined because that's not normal.
Editor Rob
Andrea, please respectfully leave Bobby's feet alone.

How the hell did the subject of feet arise on here...๐Ÿ˜„ Please, nobody link to any pictures of their feet or try to prove their length!

@Celebheights 6โ€™1.5: I think at 4-5 hrs a person measuring 6โ€™1โ€ is good to go. They may dip below but Iโ€™d be surprised if itโ€™s less than around 6โ€™0.75. I think anything above 1/2 could be rounded up
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Nov/18
@ Christian 6ft5 and 3/8ths:

Oh no way did I have to wear special shoes! My operation followed quickly after it was discovered how badly crushed my hip was. I was given the first cancellation, not because of the foot, but because of the pain I was in. I could hardly walk anyway, and I often didn't make the toilet with a full bladder! It was bloody awful, and hopefully NOT a taste of old age; I never want to be like that again!

Cheers Christian! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Nov/18
@Sandy

So did you have to wear a thick shoe because of the leg discrepancy?
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Nov/18
@ Connor - You are a very good and likeable person and if you feel low, then you must seek professional help. There is plenty of excellent help to be had, and you are deserving of the best.

I have been depressed myself and still suffer from bad anxiety and have difficulty going out ever since I was attacked on a train and had complete loss of memory, which I never regained and don't think I want to. You will learn tactics to help yourself cope. I also read self-help books, but your first step is the need for expert guidance, Connor, before you can move on to that.

You have to learn to like yourself and believe that you have a lot to offer, because you certainly do. I have known you for two years now and I have never seen anything but a nice person in you. Now it is time that you discover him for yourself. You have your whole life ahead of you and you should be filled with excitement at the prospect.

My best wishes always,

Sandy xxx

@ Ben - Thank you so much for your congratulations! I feel much better for it and the very thought that I can wear high heels now and look a properly decent height again has made my year! It was frightening to have shrunk so much because it made me fear that there were all sorts of other things wrong in order that I could have lost so much height so quickly, but there was just the one explanation - I needed a hip replacement and the operation was a success.

Yes, just five years ago, we'll have been 'height twins'! Five years flies by ridiculously fast, but not when you're a youngster. I guess you were rather small for a 13-year-old boy, so to have reached your above-average height must be fantastic for you! My brother was small as a kid, but he's about 5ft8 now - and pretty well grateful for it!

Have a super weekend Ben! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

Hi Rob and everyone else!

My boyfriend Jim popped round today and just before he left, I asked him whether I'd told him about my new height of 5ft1 and three-quarters, mentioning about Christian writing in to ask me whether the height regained was down to my operation or my posture. Then I added, "Oh yes, Christian is 6ft5 and three-eighths, at his day's lowest height!"

Jim retorted humourously, "What is it about you lot? Are you six-years-old or something? You remind me of the film 'Time Bandits', where every fraction of an inch is included by the extra small members of the cast!"

I replied, "It is serious stuff this height business! We have to be able to tell if someone is taller than someone else, and if it's by only an eighth of an inch then so be it! It still counts!"

He looked to the skies and said, "Watch 'Time Bandits'! Then you'll see what I mean!"

I certainly will order myself a copy, especially as the cast includes many of the Monty Python team - and Sean Connery!

Some people will never understand our fascination for height, but there you go! Each to his own! Jim finished by saying that I had texted him with the news. I mean, I can't imagine NOT having done so! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Cheers everybody! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘
Editor Rob
It's worth watching...the ending though isn't what I'd call 'Happy'.

A recovered fraction (or 3/4 inch!) is nothing to be scoffed at. Heck, you should demand Jim makes or buys you a cake!

I know if I could get Jenny her half inch of height loss back, she'd be so grateful that I'm sure she'd offer to do the dishes for the next 10 years ๐Ÿ˜†
Sakz said on 10/Nov/18
@Celebheights 6'1.5" Honestly what you claim will only be debated on here. In real life as long as you claim either an afternoon or evening height you're good. There's only a few mm's difference between the two measurements so just claim whatever you prefer and are comfortable with saying.
Ben said on 10/Nov/18
Congrats Sandy! When I was measured at age 13 the nurse called out 5'2.5"! So we were height buddies back then!

My mom used to be 5'7" but she's older now and looks noticeably shorter, apparently she's taller than my 5'6.35" friend but she doesn't look much taller than 5'5"-5'6" to me. She'd probably measure around 5'6". She insists that I'm 6'0" or more! ๐Ÿ˜น
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Nov/18
@ Christian - My height loss was due to my broken hip; you could hear the bones move as I walked. The Surgeon measured my legs and one was 4/5cm (I think, but it could have been more) shorter than the other. I asked whether I'd get my original height back and he (the Surgeon) replied, "You should regain most of it!"

Well, I did! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Cheers Christian, and have a great weekend!

Was your height loss mostly posture related, or did you regain actual height from your hip and spine?
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 9/Nov/18
@Canson Thank you very much. By the way, as an example, would you say that itโ€™s inaccurate and/or imprecise for someone who measures up at 6โ€™1โ€ in between being up for 4-5 hours out of bed to claim to be that tall? Iโ€™ve seen a lot of ongoing heated debates over the matter, over the validity of the claim, and Iโ€™ve never understood what the big fuss was over someone claiming that measurement as their height, especially since their low is likely to only be within 1/8โ€ of that mark. If that measurement happens to be 6โ€™1 1/8โ€, however, then they should obviously go with their normal low measuremeny of 6โ€™1โ€, as nobody outside of the realms where there are generals that have laser eyes that could โ€œruleโ€ peopleโ€™s claims to the exact percent of an inch practically would give a **** due to how most eyes canโ€™t scan peopleโ€™s physical proportions that closely, lmfao. If their maximum out of bed height is 6โ€™0 7/8โ€, however, then claiming to be 6โ€™1โ€ is laughable.

How about we agree that I don't like you, and you don't like me? It's clear to me that anything I tell you is only selectively understood by that brain of yours. All I know is, I merely commented on the duality between stature and foot size, and you decided to attack my foot size for no reason other than to get a reaction out of me. Maybe if your comments were more objective and less pompous, I would take no offense.

So, good day, killjoy.
Pierre said on 9/Nov/18
Rob,
I would ask you what do you think about this= I have ever observed the scale(height chart) in the pictures you posted give your head around 10 inches, your head is more around 9 inches no?
Editor Rob
My head is more in 9.5 range.
There are many photos with a slight downtilt in eyes, so that would make the head nearer to 10 inches. If I was raising my eyes a bit, then closer to 9 inches would be better.
Sakz said on 9/Nov/18
@Greg He meant if you are taller than someone else or a group of people. Generally I've noticed it aswell when someone says one is taller than another it gives that person a great deal of satisfaction. For some it also gives mental superiority.

@Matt99 nobody feels superior if they are taller than you because thereโ€™s always going to be someone taller than you unless youโ€™re like 7โ€™0 in which then it will be much harder to come across someone taller or even close to your height.

Rob , do you consider yourself a legit 5'8 3/16 ?
Editor Rob
At earlier times of the day I could measure over 5ft 8.25, but I don't consider myself that tall, since I fall towards just a little bit over 5ft 8. In metric it is easier with 173cm, because that is closer to my heightIt is probably better in metric for me saying 173cm.
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Nov/18
Hey Rob,

While I was at my Dad's just this week, he offered to measure me when I let him know what I was told at my medical before my hip operation last Valentine's day, a 'gift' which was definitely NOT loved and appreciated! The 'gift' was:
โค๏ธโœ–๏ธ I was measured in at five foot zilch! Of course, I lept at the chance to find out my new height!

I am delighted to say that I am now 5ft1 and three-quarters, which means that I have ended up losing a total of just three-quarters of an inch in all and I am so pleased. I feel this is bordering on a far more normal height loss for someone of my age. In May 2017, I was even measured in at 150cm/4ft11, but I simply didn't believe it. The hip replacement, painful as it was, has not only enabled me to walk again, but I have a much more acceptable height for someone who was 5ft2.5 to begin with. Now with shoes, I can look average height!

To give you some idea of how excited I was, in an earlier game on TV of 'The Chase', I did lousily and didn't care unduly. Then later, my Dad and myself saw another 'match' on the 'Challenge' Channel, and I did really well! I was able to concentrate far more clearly as I was so happy and chuffed that I'm not far from 5ft2 again. I don't feel 'all scrunched up' anymore!

Anyway, it's great to be back! Cheers Rob, Nik and all of the rest of you lovely visitors! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ“
Editor Rob
That shows, how sometimes operation or improvement in holding yourself can result in a taller measurement...congratulations on your height regeneration!
Andrea said on 8/Nov/18
Cry? Believe me, Bobby, there's nothing you can say that can make me cry. At the very most, your comments can make me die... of laughter of course! Or cringe, which is what happens most of the time I see your name.
P.S. Keep telling that to yourself: everything Andrea said about me was completely wrong, everything Andrea said about me was completely wrong, everything Andrea said about me was completely wrong,... I'm sure that helps! :-)
Andrea said on 8/Nov/18
And there he is. As I have already told you, viper, unfortunately for you, basically all my estimates always turned out to be very sensible and pretty much spot on, when Rob eventually met the celebrities in question, so I don't know what you mean by "a terrible judge of height". If you mean that you disagree with all my estimates, I couldn't be more proud of (and I'd start worrying if it was otherwise), given how delusional yours are (with Welling and Jared being just two of the MANY examples), and I thank god for not being as "accurate" as you!
And LOL at you saying and thinking that you are "the most accurate poster over the years" and "almost never wrong". Considering that you're the exact opposite of that, unless you're joking, you really are a nutcase, LMFAO!

Oh believe me Andrea, everything you said about me was completely wrong which was astonishing to me. I had written enough information to fill one page out of a tome but then I decided, "She might cry." So, I decided not too. It's okay though, I'll see you at the next meeting of the lollipop guild. Bring your earmuffs though, I heard whispers that the big cheese himself, General Rob, will be there. He chewed out Sir Arthur last weekend, I have it on video.

I'm not saying that Sandy used multiple usernames and IPs, I'm saying that her MOTIVES were no different than Viper's, which is in no way an "insult". She has admitted herself of attempting to alter the Average Guess. You can keep on denying it, but the fact remains.
Editor Rob
It's like people giving 1's and 10's, half the people who ever submitted a vote have probably done something similar. It usually balances out (high/low guesses) and in theory (if you had enough votes) a reasonable average becomes clear.
viper said on 7/Nov/18
I mean If I was Andrea and a terrible judge of height, I'd be jelly of myself and accuracy as well over the years.

Maybe I could pay for your eye surgery Andrea. Then maybe, just maybe you can be as accurate as me.

Bringing up people like Welling and Jared shows I win.

OH NOES VIPER WAS WAY OFF ON A FEW HE SUCKS!! lol
viper said on 7/Nov/18
Many posters have said I'm the most accurate poster over the years.

I'm almost never wrong.

Yet Andrea is the biggest troll in celebheights history and projects his crappiness on to others.

So Andrea, we all know even the blind can tell height better than you
Bobby said on 7/Nov/18
@Matt99

Don't go bringing me into this example of yours. I don't tell people anything else than 5'10 when they ask me my height. I rarely ever think about things like feeling superior. I pass by dozens of university students on the way to classes, and it's just a sea of people to me. I'm taller than a decent chunk but another few might be my height or taller.
Andrea said on 7/Nov/18
LOL, Bobby. YOU, of all people, saying that I have selective comprehension skills is pure comedy and cringe! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
But again, I understand that you want to think that way because deep down you know that every single thing I've said about you in the other comment is completely true, even though you clearly cannot accept it (as predicted) and in fact you conveniently ignored it... The funny thing is that I just scratched the surface with that, and I could go on and on, but since I understand that your situation is already quite problematic by itself, I don't want (and actually I've never wanted) to rub it in. Don't force me to do that, though! ๐Ÿ˜Š
Zampo said on 7/Nov/18
@Matt99:

Personally, I don't see height as anything else other than a characteristic. Anyone who feels "superior" due to being taller than someone, I suspect most likely suffers complex issues. Although, at the extreme we know there are some who feel they are better than others because of their race, gender etc. So it's hardly surprising that there will be some that feel so regarding height.
Zampo said on 7/Nov/18
@Andrea:

It wouldn't surprise me if it was indeed higher. I think one should be careful with phrases such as "overlisted" etc. I am not sure it is the appropriate term as we are basing the listing on one photo (which can easily go either way-camera angle, posture etc). I do think possibly when the difference in the photo is looking over 0.5 inch (maybe 0.75 inch) in comparison to the listed height, then they may be a case.

Your suggestion the last paragraph would make for an interesting study! One thing that must be noted is that Rob seems to have a range in which thinks a celeb could measure when meets them. If he went with his lower estimate rather than the upper, there is a possibility that the majority of photos with celebs will look near enough (0.25 inch off listed height).
Matt99 said on 7/Nov/18
A 173cm range guy (like rob) in my film class claimed 5โ€™9 today but really insecurely and I felt bad for him cause heโ€™s not much different to me. 5โ€™8 is a perfectly average height. Thing is, Iโ€™m sure people on here try to feel superior only because of their height like every other tall or above average person, or even a short person being taller than a shorter person. Come on admit it people, youโ€™ve felt good about yourself for being taller than someone else in the street, Bobby Iโ€™m watching you ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚ which isnโ€™t a bad thing but it doesnโ€™t make you a better person in the end.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Nov/18
@Csimpson

It's all good!
Andrea said on 6/Nov/18
Zampo, I think the percentage of celebrities who look shorter than their listings with Rob is probably even more than that (70%), though that doesn't necessarily mean that they are overlisted like Christian says because if that was the case, most of the celebrities that Rob took a picture with should be downgraded and many of them by a noticeable and UNBELIEVABLE amount.
That being said, it would be interesting to calculate the average "height loss" in Rob's pictures with celebrities, how tall they look with him (which is pretty much a FACT) vs how tall he thought they were in person. I certainly expect it to be AT LEAST 0.5 inch...
