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. In 2019, first thing in the morning, I measure around 5ft 8 ⅞in. 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.

@ Sandy Cowell - Yes I would, but just the once! It must have been funny to hear it, did he save it for people who crossed him?
Sakz said on 6/Dec/19
@Rob Very interesting with some valid points made.

@Sandy I'm not going to judge too harshly because I know he has mental health problems and I know what that can do a person. It is better that he's not here though both for himself and this site.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Dec/19
@ Nik - It's a useful weapon because it pi$$es people off!

@ Rob,
Let us assume that you have walked for 10kms and you have been awake for 10 hours, Do you think u will dip under 173cm or atleast flat 173cm?
Editor Rob

I think getting to 5ft 8 flat after day a long hike up a mountain is possible
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Dec/19
@ Nik - No you wouldn't! 😩
Nik Ashton said on 6/Dec/19
@ Sandy Cowell - If it hurts yours and his ears then it is 🔥ing loud! Why is it a useful weapon? I’d love to hear it!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Dec/19
@ Nik - I don't! It's bloody deafening and hurts my ears. It hurts his ears too, but a useful weapon to have in your armour!

@ Rob,
After 2.5 hours out of bed, i am down to 175.2cm and i have walked for 6kms. Is it normal that i am only 3mm above my daily low?
Editor Rob

Some can lose a lot in first 3 hours, so it’s not rare. I have got to my near low by 4 hours if I am up and doing actual physical job

@Rob , I have an intersting thing ! I used to be 176cm after I've done growing , but about one year age I woke up and on a normal day I measured my height as 175cm and It last until today and rarely measure 176cm again, also I noticed that I shrink 3-4mm suddenly and every day , I guess it has something to do with bad posture.
my height varies everyday a lot somedays I measure 175.2 , another day 175cm or even 174.8!
Now Rob what would you say my problem is:
A)disk herniation
B)Poor posture
C)Back injury
D)lower back muscle problems

Editor Rob

Yeah could be injury and your discs slightly damaged...or hydration levels?

Maybe try some routine like stretching for a month and see if it improves...
_______________________________________________
@Rob, I want to clarify something , I remember that day when I've lost some height ,I bent my back a lot and felt a lot of pain , so it could has an injury as you said...
Here is my measurements these days :
Out of bed :176.5cm
After 2 hours : 175.9cm
After 4 hours :175.2cm
After 6 hours :175.2cm
After 7 hours : 174.8cm ( A sudden drop !)
Now Rob , what does this drop mean ? An injury ? If so , what should I do to regain my original height ?
Editor Rob
What you don't want to do is aggravate any issue, so maybe it is best seeking some professional advice.

Personally when I've had back issues, I use some decompression and heat therapy, and avoid doing stuff like housework 😼
Nils2 said on 5/Dec/19
Mm.. i believe a strong 5'8 seems fair, it may change my mind about guys like BAG, maybe near 5'11 is fair for him.
I've thought of you as 172.8 without really thinking about it.
I would say for celebs, claiming a couple mm above their lowest height is pretty honest.
actionboy said on 5/Dec/19
@Rob. Being exactly 2.6 cm taller than you what height would be listed here? No matter how I look in person just telling you I'm exactly 2.6/2.7 cm on you
Editor Rob
Well you could get 5ft 9.25 or 9.5
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Dec/19
@ Bobby - Don't take any notice if people see fit to insult your integrity. You know what you are: clever and ambitious.

@ Canson - If Connor has made the decision himself then there's not much we can do. Besides, history might only repeat itself.

@ Sakz and Greg - Insulting behaviour is rude and unnecessary. I don't think I did anything to warrant being insulted 😂😂😂 and find it quite funny really, if a little strange. I only ever read that he was decent to me. How someone can fight over height I will never know. You are what you are. I did see one of his measuring videos and he wasn't able to give any eye-to-eye contact with the camera, so yes, he has psychological problems. He also seemed like a tortured soul, which is sad.

Cheers X Four, guys! 😁👍👍👍👍
Editor Rob
Worrying about height when you're 5ft 5 is understandable, but if you're 6 foot and worrying about it or obsessing over your own height...it's dangerous.
Canson said on 4/Dec/19
@Greg: I knew you and Bobby have had your spats with Connor over the years but I didn’t realize that he said any mean things about Sandy. That really shocks me because I’ve never seen her get into it with anyone here. I saw them interact and it always appeared positive and she also provided calm to him
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Dec/19
@Goel
Yeah, the West has stagnated for a long time now, and it may even be trending slightly downwards. In both US and the Netherlands, the middle aged people are the tallest.
Canson said on 4/Dec/19
TheBat said on 2/Dec/19
@Canson

Wow lol. I have no idea how someone could guess a 6'4" guy like you at 6'7", same goes with me and Greg getting guessed at 6'1".

It’s happened before. And been guessed 6’6 with straight faces with people who believed themselves to be taller

@Rob Can I measure me with a shelf?
Editor Rob
A small shelf maybe, but some objects aren't thick enough so might give small errors when holding against a wall.

————————————————————————————————————————

Why not a shelf of 7'9 inch tall and heavy?
Editor Rob
I think measuring height can be overcomplicated. The simplest objects are stuff like cans, blocks of wood that you can hold.

I mean you can compare height to shelfs of heights or whatever, I even did a video showing an Alternative way of measuring, but it's more complicated really, but still, I thought was interesting as you could build up your own type of 'shelf' using a block of wood to a certain height and then standing underneath it you would know if you were taller than that height or not.

Nils2 said on 4/Dec/19
Hey Rob forgive me i'm a bit confused, i just saw a video where u measured 173.7 on ur low and here it says u measure 5'8.25 lunch time. Not sure if i should see you as 5'8 or 5'8.25 at least.
Editor Rob

A lot of videos are Jenny holding a camera for me, most would be towards lunch rather than evening or after a physical day. I consider myself around 173cm, not as much as 174cm.

If you are of the belief or go with earlier heights like 9-10am, then fair enough, you could view me as near 174cm if you wish.
Nik Ashton said on 4/Dec/19
@ Sandy Cowell - That’s amazing! Many people will envy your boyfriend being able to burp so loudly, extra loud burps must be so funny, to the deliverer and those around him/her!

It would be great to hear the loudest burper there is plying his/her trade in our localities! Coming to a town near you! 😂😂😂

The thing is if you are standing near a burper you might get the blame, the dirty looks, the frowns, THE COMMENTS! 😂😂😂

🗣🎵👂!
Andrea said on 4/Dec/19
I see, Rob, and I have no doubt there's a big work behind it! 👍
Speaking of ads, I guess that's pretty bad period? I remember you said that the upload of photos mainly depends on that, and the last time you uploaded one was over 2 months ago...
Editor Rob

The EU Privacy has had an effect on revenue from EU countries.
Believe me I will get back to putting photos up again, but I felt other work jumped to the top of the queue these last 2 months...stuff that should help improve the ad rates longer term.

If I don't spend time on this 'donkey work', unfortunately I might not be able to afford ANY cons in 2020, and I don't want that! 😲 Neither does Jenny, I just bought her some new shelves for her stall 😊

Also I am slowly getting some mugshots directly back on the site like This, so if you see in future the words 'Height Comparison Chart' under the photo, it will be a link to the mugshot photo hosted on this site, no ads or anything...just the pic itself 👌

Oh and a friendly public reminder to our long-term friend ***** please don't copy them to other blogs this time 👍
Sakz said on 4/Dec/19
@Rob 100%. I didn't realise how popular the topic of height was until I found this site. I knew people generally want to be tall but I wasn't aware discussing the specifics of it was so intriguing for many. I guess because there's celebrities involved that helps with drawing in more visitors aswell.
Editor Rob
There's still a lot of people who search for celebs online, all sorts of stats about them, height, weight, eyes, family, net worth etc...only thing is Google gobbles most of the traffic up by using featured snippets/knowledge boxes.

They are cheeky in that respect and governments have been investigating and fining them over their anti competitive behaviour.

Worth reading the guy from Celeb Net Worth talking about google, because a lot I agree with.

@ greg
yeah agreed.I too believe those who say that it isn’t tall are either lying about their own height or don’t know how tall 6’0 really is due to the 5’9-5’10 even 5’11 guys claiming it. yeah 6’ feet is underestimated because all the folks who are 5’10 and 5’11 claims it but a real measured legit 6 footer is tall is many parts on the world.it may barely be above/below average for country such as netherland but is in tall range in many countries of the world,maybe 9/10 countries.in the us/uk it is surely a solid tall given that even a 5’10 guys feels above average and 5’11 guys feels taller at times.its funny to say ,not saying tall but it is funny to say and hear but even 5’11 or say solid 5’11 guy can feel taller at times in uk/us,i agree dude that 5’10-5’11 is a tricky range I would say that’s above average and tallish in most places outside of Europe.the average still lies in 5’9 and maybe 5’9.5 for younger folks but havent reached full 5’10 yet as i feel.i feel 5’11 is one of the most proportional and aesthetic height.

@Andrea
I get the feeling at times. It can be a bit frustrating to not have new comments appear for several days, and by the time a batch of new comments show up, the older comments are already pushed down in the "Comments" page, and some of the older comments might contain people replying to you, but you might not realize that there was a reply, since the older ones are already pushed down. But I also realize that Rob's often busy and his job here can be overwhelming. Sometimes, we as posters and visitors can't get everything we want.
Canson said on 3/Dec/19
@Sandy: I don’t think Rob won’t give Connor another chance. It’s more that Connor has told other people that he isn’t coming back which for him was a personal decision
Canson said on 3/Dec/19
@Greg: he was definitely about half foot shorter than me lol
Canson said on 3/Dec/19
@Greg: I’m surprised that even you being about an inch taller than your friend that he thinks you two are the same height. 5’11 is absurd for him but if he claimed 5’10” I could understand as he would measure at least 5’9.5-.75 in the morning if he’s 5’9 3/8”. Maybe he really believes it or he hasn’t been measured

Editor Rob

I am prone to losing interest in topics and moving on, which is why I churned through a lot of different genres of sites from 2001 to 2004 but this site I've felt has the kind of variety and interest for a long-term project, which has turned out to be true
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 3/Dec/19
@Sandy Cowell

To be fair, Connor has never insulted or demeaned my intelligence, but I can count a handful of users: Sean 198cm, Andrea, Arthur, Mat, DruceLee, German Guy 177cm, and so forth, who have certainly taken stabs at my integrity. I have had to endure constant back and forths with certain users over the years since I joined CelebHeights and revealed my measurements to everybody.
Nik Ashton said on 3/Dec/19
@ cmillz - Yeah, Rob’s average!
Greg said on 3/Dec/19
@Christian eh we where never close I suppose we became civil at a point but that kid acts like a 5 year old with his temper tantrums. He’s just morbid and really disrespectful, you can even ask Bobby but you can’t even have a normal conversation with him. Basically he doesn’t want to take accountability for his actions. ... He’s just blocked me and I could really care less I regret standing up for him because I’m too nice and I take back everything I said good about him.

@Sandy Cheers, you know I always got my celeb heights Pen pal covered, yeah connors said really mean things about you Bobby and I and even Rob. But nobody defiles the heightmaster general that’s why he got banned. I think Connors better off not being on here, he has no self awareness or self respect for anybody. He’s always projecting:
Editor Rob
I had to trim some of that out ...
Sakz said on 3/Dec/19
@Greg Even physically 6 footers typically give a tall impression with normal proportions. Throw in good proportions and they'll easily look even taller.

@Sandy I believe he once said he has mental health problems which would explain occasional outbursts. His height wasn't the problem he's 6'0 if I'm not mistaken.

@ Rob,
Here is the latest England Health Survey Report which is published today.
Click Here
Average height of age 16-24 olds- 177.4cm
for 25-34 year olds- 178cm
Overall average height- 175.6cm
From the last 12-13 years, The average height of 16-34 year olds has not been changed at all. It is fluctuated between 177 and 178cm. This time solid enough 5'10 among 25-34 year olds. Is this a sign for Stagnation of Average height among young men(16-34 year olds)
Editor Rob
Over 15 years the average has basically been 5ft 9 to 5ft 9 1/8th, so it's holding steady.

I would agree that overall 175-6 range does seem pretty average in UK and younger 20-30 men are taller on average.

Awwefan99 said on 3/Dec/19
Hi rob, this year my height has been consistent. Morning height is 174.3 and evening height's usually 172.5. Nowadays, my evening height is at 173 on the dot although my morning height is still 174.3. Did i grow?
Editor Rob
If morning hasn't changed, then you haven't grown...but your body is maybe better hydrated or the discs aren't losing as much fluid as before.

You're correct, I'm definitely in that range. And it's crazy how people are height blind. 2 months ago I met a 5'11", maybe 5'11.25" male college student claiming 6'2", 4 months ago a 6'1" flat man claiming 6'3.25", last year a 5'8" man claiming 5'10", 2 weeks ago a 5'5.75" to 5'6.25" range female student at college claiming 5'9", 5 weeks ago a 6'2" guy claiming 6'4" and a 5'8.75" woman claiming 5'11", four days ago a man around 5'9" claiming to be almost 6'1" and 4 years ago a 5'3" male high school student claiming 5'7". Those are some other memorable height inflations I've heard in person.
Tarinator 6'2 3/8 said on 2/Dec/19
Hey Rob sir, is your job stressful of do you enjoy it? It must be difficult to figure out these measurements and calculations on a daily basis. And to manage this site too! Which is what I would find too if I did this job. But I guess we get used to it over time.
Editor Rob
The instability of income is the main stress factor.

It can be enjoyable, but there are some parts I am not a fan of - some of the nonsense I read online 😏


If anybody is SERIOUSLY thinking about making a living from a website, find something you can sell...a product, digital or real. Relying on ad revenue is not the best model 😁
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Dec/19
@Greg
What happened? I thought you and Connor were close. You've even defended him and was on his side while he was fighting with other posters.
Greg said on 2/Dec/19
Also I wanted to add my friend uses “maybe you have to understand everything is relative” to justify his bs claim. I was trolling him and claimed 5’8 as measured by the doctor, and then he was like “really you’re 5’8? No way you’re 5’11 like me as he’s like 5’9 3/8ths more or less. And I’m like thinking “dude you wouldn’t even hit 5’11 in shoes” he would be lucky to measure 5’11 in a pair of thick boots. Definitely not even 5’11 let alone 5’10. I’m going to laugh when I measure him.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Dec/19
@ Nik - He's very good at them, and does deafeningly loud ones, so loud that one has to cover one's ears!

He used to burp when he and Bert were down the road together. Bert wasn't very keen on the idea, because people would look round and automatically blame him. He had the long hair - at the time - but they both had beards. When Jim came to mine to stay, he grew his hair longer than ever!

Cheers Nik and all the best to you and your Mum! XX 😁🎅 XX 💐🎄
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Dec/19
@ Greg - Hi mate and thank you for saying nice things about me; I think you are great as well, and I enjoy your contribution to Celebheights.

As far as I know, Connor hasn't slagged me off at all. If he has then I have yet to read the comment(s)! I'm not sure I would, even if given the opportunity.

People who enter into mud-slinging matches are taking out their own insecurities on others and to be pitied - and helped. I know he said nasty things about Bobby. Why? Is he jealous of his intelligence, because he has a couple of inches on him anyway. Personally, unless it messes with his or her head, I don't mind how tall a person is. I have had fun with people of all different heights.

I think it might be nice to give Connor another chance with us this Christmas. I hope he applies to Rob, and then we can help him learn to accept himself and grow in the ways that are most important in adulthood.

Cheers Greg! Thank you very much for standing up for me. I wish you a very happy December.

Sandy XX 😁👍🎄

Rob, why is the site so slow in the last period? Is there a particular reason, or just "business as usual"?
Editor Rob
There's a lot of tasks that running a large site encompasses. The more content, the more work.

Sometimes it's not apparent how much work is involved in keeping a site like this going 🙀

"Rob, please add Mr X"

Sure, but my priority today is sifting through 1000 comments on 2 pages because an 'advert bot' flagged them as containing 'dodgy' material.

Instead of being able to spend time looking at Mr. X, I'm now re-reading comments trying to figure out any word/phrase that might have caused the issue, because the Service Provider won't give any specifics...3 hours later I'm still none the wiser 😃

If folk ever wonder why I have to moderate the site, there's your answer...without it, the site would not be here today.

@Christian 6'5 3/8"

Sorry about that sir. That was my measurement a few months before I was measured at 189 cm. A few months ago it was 187 cm. People say I look 6'0" but I am a little taller than that.I think the measurement was 189.9 cm but they forgot the .9 cm and left it at 189 cm. People are saying I look much shorter than that but I know I have measured taller than only 6'0" (from what I measured at home and at the clinic).

Greg said on 1/Dec/19
@Canson @The Bat that’s insane, yeah I think you are my height, you’re 5’10.25-5’10.5 between afternoon and evenings right? That’s basically me 5’10.25 is my general low sometimes I can end the same at 5’10 3/8ths today I had a relaxed day and measured like 5’10 5/8ths after a few hours but I didn’t do much and was on and off laying down. I think I had a 5’9 guy try to claim 6’0 and was shocked when I told him I was almost 5’11 he tried to inflate me to 6’1 or higher and then this other 6’2 range guy to 6’4-6’5 or something like that. Yeah people are so height blind it actually blows my mind.

So yesterday I went out to lunch with 3 friends 2 of them are honest of them inflates. 1 of them is like around 6’0 maybe a bit over the other might be a little taller than Rob like 5’8.5ish the 3rd claims 5’11 but he’s like 5’9 range so my friend brought up the fact that I think I’m taller than the other guy which I know because he’s already guessed me at 6’0 before and asked me if I was sure I wasn’t and I said no. like he acknowledged I was taller but then went back on his word he isn’t height aware at all and he thinks right or guessing a guy barely an inch taller at 6’2 idk if he was trolling or not but he’s bad with heights. But my friend was saying that I said the 5’11 claimer was 5’8-5’9 and I was a few inches taller, I was like “no you’re twisting my words” I told him 5’8-5’9 might be more likely his range than 5’10-5’11. And I definitely have him by at least an inch if not a bit over. And I told him I’ll measure anytime any day, so far they are both avoiding it I feel like because they know I’m right but we bet money on it. Anyways he is max like 5’9.25-3/8ths if he hits 5’10 it’s probably right out of bed and he would quickly drop to 5’9.5, he didn’t even look 5’11 in shoes we had the same sneaker and I comfortably edged him out because I was 5’11.5 and he might have been 5’10.5ish give or take.
edwards said on 1/Dec/19
@ sakz
yeah dude,you are taller than me.and i agree that it is very tall around 6'3.i feel a 6’2 guy with a thick shoes maybe a shoes that gives him 1.5-2 inch can tower an average guy.i consider 6-6’2 common tall height but it is 6’3 or 6’3.5 where you can tower an average guy i feel.in the us and in the uk,6 is start of tall and 6’3 is quite tall or over 6’3 can be considered very tall at times
Canson said on 1/Dec/19
@Christian: I was laughing just as much as I do with another guy who walks around saying he’s 6’4 (6’3.75) and probably is a weak 6’3”. The latter inflates everyone by an inch when he guesses their heights. If I were told that often that I’m not as tall as I claim or even taller than I claim, I’d get measured. Although knowing what we know now, taller than you claim to be is attributed to lying by others

@The Bat: I got guessed at 6’7” a time or two at 6’4”. One guy tried to tell me he’s 6’5” and he’s really 6’2-6’3 and that I was 1.5-2” taller so I must be 6’7”. Argument last so long that I walked away from him mid sentence.

@Rob i have a long neck (looks good luckily), average head size and chin
Editor Rob
People might see the same person differently, there are some factors which effect other people's abilities to judge heights. Even clothing, personality could have a little impact on it, as could a longer neck, higher shoulders, body weight etc.
Cedric 172 cm said on 1/Dec/19
@cm-o 5'7-5'7.25 look different to 5'7.5-5'8.25"
There are 5'7.5-5'8.25" with bad proportions and they look clearly different to 175 guys.
cmillz said on 1/Dec/19
I think once you reach a legit 173cm, you can be considered “average”
Greg said on 1/Dec/19
@Khaled Taban well on average from eye level to top of head is 4.5 inches so if a man has a 5’4 range eye level maybe he’s 5’9ish?
Greg said on 1/Dec/19
@Edwards the thing is 6’0 looks taller to most people, I believe those who say that it isn’t tall are either lying about their own height or don’t know how tall 6’0 really is due to the 5’9-5’10 even 5’11 guys claiming it. 5’10-5’11 is a tricky range I would say that’s above average and tallish in most places outside of Europe. Even almost 5’11 guys like me get referred to as semi tall, with the right proportions and footwear you would look a tall guy.
Greg said on 1/Dec/19
@Canson lol really? Do you think he was at least close to 5’11, or closer to 5’10? I could see if a guy was like 5’11.5” saying 6’0-6’1 as that’s a common inflation, though I get shocked when 5’9 guys claim 6’0-6’11, you would think they would try 5’10-5’11 but some of these inflations are really unbelievable.
Greg said on 1/Dec/19
@Miss Sandy Cowell I am outraged to hear what Connor said about you, he’s is childish and arrogant he needs major help. You’re a great person and you don’t deserve such nonsensical babbling from this hooligan wanna be Doncaster kid. He needs to attend a mandatory 12 week “Remedial Behavioral Course” with Robert Paul himself and only then maybe then might he can get a chance back on the board. Although I don’t think Rob would allow him back just this easy, I think his ban was fairly placed.

He's a rude fellow, isn't he, burping without pardoning himself! BURP is a good word - it's a great example of onomatopoeia. Having said that, after my first evening with ***, I was able to burp out any word I pleased as well!

@Cedric

Why are your polls on height so clustered into one height range? Why specify fractions that no one would even distinguish in person? I find that weird.
TheBat said on 30/Nov/19
@Canson

Lol. I had a guy guess me at 6'1" but he was a 5'9" guy claiming 6'0". I'm about Greg's height, maybe .25 inch below.
Cedric 172 cm said on 30/Nov/19
Rob please, can you create a article of short brother and tall brother, or tall sister and short brother (similar height or taller)
Editor Rob
It's a possibility if I can get the time, the tall sister/short brother is a more tricky area to look into.
Cedric 172 cm said on 30/Nov/19
It's funny i am shorter than Rob but i looks taller than him for a fraction. I think Rob has a complexion of a 5'8 more than 173.2 cm
Editor Rob
Your head size plays a role in it, so it is always a benefit having a higher chin level or high eyelevel.

@ Cedric 172 cm

I have to disagree . I am 5'9.25 and I look more similar to 5'10 and
even 5'11 guys than to 5'7.5 guys . many people also guess me 180cm

imo when you are 175cm or more at night you look and feel different . 172cm is a bit short ....or at least it is knocking on the door of short . and below 170cm is 100% short there is no question

I feel very medium at roughly 176cm evening height . I wouldnt feel medium height at 172cm but below medium / a bit short

I like my height but I wish I was 183cm
Canson said on 30/Nov/19
@Cedric: I have a slightly different perspective. 5’9” is average height in my book
Sakz said on 30/Nov/19
@Edwards You will typically tower the average male once you're very tall so around 6'3 where you and I live. I'm a weak 6'1 (near 185cm).
FiveEightJake said on 30/Nov/19
Rob, I can’t work out my true height, I’ve measured on variety of surfaces, hard surfaces I can get anywhere between 173.7 - 174.7, carpets I can get 173 - 173.5. My bathroom seems flat and that gets me my highest measurement. What’s the most accurate measurement other than a stadiometer?

Also Rob if a man and woman were the same exact height would a woman have a higher eye level out of the two? Even you and Jenny for example her eye level can seem higher at times but the top of your head is taller.

I’m eagerly awaiting the Man United height video btw Rob 😉
Editor Rob
I would discount carpet and go with bathtroom. Sometimes a kitchen/bathroom has plywood sheets put down, which helps level things compared to floorboards on their own.
Eyelevels can vary a bit, generally a women's on average would be slightly higher.

Man U is done and sometime in December, but I was not sure on a couple of heights so I may well edit it again 😂
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Nov/19
@ Bobby - Thanks, Bobby, for telling me this! I often avoid the General Heights Page because of the possibility of insults flying, which is so pointless and stupid.

However, Connor could still revise his behaviour and apply to Rob again, swallowing his pride and doing the manly thing of apologizing.

@Rob , If my ear's top is about 5'8 , how tall I should be and the ear level is necessarily in line with the eye level ??
Editor Rob
it's more a bit under top of ear that would be middle of eye. I would expect you were in 6ft range comfortably
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 29/Nov/19

But the global male average is no taller than 5'7" though. Might even be 5'6.5", so 5'7.5" is above average.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 29/Nov/19
@Sandy Cowell

Connor has been permanently banned by Rob, additionally, he has also expressed that he will not be returning back to the website. Apparently the temporary ban rubbed him the wrong way since he was only sticking up for me and Greg, at the time, but went a little too far with the insults. He also apparently said some very nasty things to Rob which resulted in the permanent ban. Although, Rob has lifted such bans in the past, presumably, with cases like Arthur. He just wanted me to let you know all of this.
Editor Rob
if people can calm down and abide by rules (Comment Policy), it makes things simpler for me to manage...I have let many return, after a few months folk can always try again if they really wish.

I see to 5'7.5"-5'9.25 guys similar, the change starts at 5'9.5"

@Rob I've just read that wrote by you. So according to Badoo users, men would prefer to date (in 4th position) women who are 6'2 tall? Did I read that right? Is that why you put the emoji after 6'2? Or I misunderstood?
Editor Rob
I don't think men are that bothered about a women's height which is probably why 6ft 2 ended up 4th!

Or it was a curiosity - just happened to be a few 6ft 2 women who had stated their height and got a lot of attention/matches.

@ sakz

you said everything i wanted to say.agreed with everything you said.yes,you dont necessarily need to tower to be considered tall if you are taller than 8/10 men you come across then that is tall imho.so 6 feet is start of tall in my book.yes,i agree on that although some people on here who have said 6'0 isn't tall in the UK or US base it onthe fact that it's not much taller than the average.but if you include all the population,6 feet is tall or surely begaining of tall.6 feet is tall in the majority of countries in the world.it is average or barely above average in only country such as netherland.agreed that There are obviously more people under 6'0 than there are above so that puts it into perspective. A solid 5'11 can definitely look tall no doubt about that.its funny to say but some girls refers even 5'11 as tall.how tall are you dude ?
Canson said on 28/Nov/19

If a guy measures 172cm should he claim 5ft8 ?
I would truly appreciate a response

If he measured around 172 at lunch and wanted to go with imperial (feet/inches), then I wouldn't bat an eyelid if he claimed 5ft 8.

if he only claimed 5ft 7 though, that is rounding down too much.

@Rob , why don’t you claim 5’8.25? I’ve seen some of your YouTube vids and in all of them you are between 5’8.25-5’8.5?
Editor Rob

Since Jenny is helping make a lot of them, I can only do them when she is available and willing which isn't at my lowest height, or night height. But if we went by mid-day then you can call me 5ft8.25 if you wish.

@Rob - well they're not very stylish so I only wear them if I'm just heading to the store or working outside so don't worry about me wearing them to sleep let alone putting lifts in them 😹

@Sandy - I was 178.7cm after 6.5 pretty active hours back in may under a stadiometer. Yep, I'm still here! Cheers!

@Greg - yeyeye I don't wear them if I'm heading out with friends or doing other activities in which involves people seeing me. I got some nice black dress boots for that which gives me around 1.25 inches.
Cedric 172 cm said on 27/Nov/19
Rob you should make a poll about what height you consider short?

A) under 5'7"
B) under 5'7.25"
C) under 5'7.5"
D) under 5'7.75"
E) under 5'8
Editor Rob
Since it varies from country to country, there's no universal figure. A 5ft 8 man in a few countries is tall, average in many, short in some.
Tarinator 6'1.5 said on 26/Nov/19
I doubt you are just 5’8.125”. More like 5’8.5” or so. The day measurements are the most reliable to depend on. I got measured at a clinic at 6’2.4” by a dietician with a stadiometer. People say I look around 5’10-6’0” but I am a bit taller than that. I measured myself at 6’0.25” last year but grew a bit from my measurement and am now 189 cm in late 2019. I remember looking 5-5.5”
inches taller than a woman who measured me. She was around 5’7” and wore 1-2” more heel than me. So I am about 6’1-2.5” and around the same height as my uncle who is 6’2” but now dropped to 6’1”. I got measured as 6’2.25-2.5” at the clinic. I am 5 inches taller than the average Canadian. How tall would I look in comparison to you?
Editor Rob
I will lose height faster depending on activity levels.

A guy like Jack Coleman is a solid 6ft 2 range, if you measured that, you'd look like him beside me.

Sakz said on 26/Nov/19
@Edwards It does depend on perspective, although some people on here who have said 6'0 isn't tall in the UK or US base it on the fact that it's not much taller than the average. That would be 'very tall'. You're not expected to tower the average person to be considered tall. I don't doubt you are taller than 8/10 people you come across. I'm not a lot taller than you and I can safely say the same. There are obviously more people under 6'0 than there are above so that puts it into perspective. A solid 5'11 can definitely look tall no doubt about that.

Greg said on 25/Nov/19
@Canson see the thing is with my one friend who’s 6’2.5.-6’2.6 and says he’s 6’4-6’5 it’s an ego thing he’s always called a tall guy and his skinny frame adds the illusion of extra height. Despite measuring him he is still in denial. As for the bar guy I never met him in person so can’t attest as he seemed maybe Christians height give or take from the photo. Now recently I just had another case where I returned some items to a passenger and out of curiosity I couldn’t help but too look at the DL to see what height he had listed and it was 6’1, man it was almost funny to see he was barely pushing 5’9 and I was considerably taller in boots I had 3 or so inches on him. I just laughed I know he was a football player so they inflate but at least go with 5’10-5’11 he skipped over 6’0 and put down 6’1, some people who look at ID’s like bartenders or bouncers especially probably get a kick from the heights guys put on there especially if it’s over 1.5 inches their real height. Oh and the 6’8-6’9 guy at my gym who says 6’11 he’s a basketball player of course. I think a lot of my friends are diagnosed with big G syndrome because my one friend is about as 5’11 as Big G is 5’8.
Greg said on 25/Nov/19
@Big Ben that’s a nice boost even my boots don’t give me as much as 2 inches although I wish because it would be nice to be almost 6’1 in them. I think mine just make me a 6 footer for most of the day which isn’t bad considering I feel pretty tall in them. Can’t imagine if I was a legit 6’0-6’1 I would feel a solid tall in boots. Swedish Vin Diesel gotta love Rob 😂. I gotta invest in a pair.

I didn't say that I don't wanna be 6'7" though. I just said that 5'10" is a more favorable height than 6'7", but that doesn't mean that 6'7" is horrible. I'd choose it over anything below 5'9".

@ Rob - Firstly, thanks for your reply. One thing I've experienced since I've been visiting Celebheights is how frequently I dream about Celebs because I stare at them all day. I wish I could fill out a form before sleeping and arrange which Celebs I dream about! I'd buy myself a nice packet of Nytol and dream myself silly!

Unfortunately, we don't get terribly many cats visiting because our bunch tend to chase them away. The new-on-the-scene black and white cat will hopefully get braver and braver and maybe one day, I'll be able to coax the rascal in. Oh, that pleading look they give you when they're after food, which is all the time in my house, indeed most cat owners' houses. They are forever after cat treats and even fight over them. From the age of ten, I would go out looking for cats to stroke, but as soon as I had money of my own, it was clear that tempting them over with a packet of Dreamies was the cast iron way of currying their affection and getting that "I'm starving - feed me!" look in their fluffy little faces! 😻

@ sakz

agreed with everything you said.but it also depends on people's perspective.some may even call 5'11 tall while other think that even 6'1 is not tall.it depends on people and location's.for the dutch people,6 feet is average while 6'1 is barely above average but here in the states and in the uk,a 6 footer will generally feel tall rather than say above average.i personally still feel that 183 cm is solid tall,not saying because i am that height but i generally feel taller than 8/10 people i meet.yes i agree with you and editor rob that for every inch,there is a jump in percentiles and its like a pyramid but i personally think that 6'1 is just a advanced version of 6.but this is how it works,but for every inch one is taller than the other.as for myself,i am 183 cm to be exact,i feel solid tall most of the time than above average.yes,it depends on people's opinion.every folks has their opinion of tall and short.i agree with everything you said dude,i myself has same situation as you. i also never gave height a single thought until I came on here a some years ago so I never desired to be a certain height.not saying tall but a solid 5'11 guy can look taller at times with good posture.i also believe that 5'11 is tallish height,it is also one of the most proportional height.but i feel 5'11 is very underrated height imho.
Big Ben said on 24/Nov/19
Oh and before I forget, Rob! I found a pair of boots that gave me ~2 inches in height. It was cool walking around at almost 6'1", almost addicting!

@Rob - I have Tinder just for fun and it's incredibly rare to see a woman who has "you have to be atleast (insert a height)" in their bio, I only see it maybe once every 2nd month. I don't think women really think care. I always swipe left on women who has "has atleast 175" or whatever bcuz that means they're just shallow and I couldn't care less(most tend to think I'm well over 180cm in person 😂). I actually matched with girl from the school I graduated from back in June who is in the 182 range and she wanted to meet up some day when one of us got our own place. She's very pretty and tbh in school I always thought she was way out my league. Well I said yes. I have 221 matches and she's the only one I'm sort of interested in.

I didn’t “come at you” I was saying I don’t see the point of being so tall, that wasn’t coming at you just stating an opinion. It seems you’re projecting again as that’s what you’re good at. Ain’t nothing to stop if nothing started, get over yourself and just look at how ignorant you sound. I don’t think you know how to read, nobody is disrespecting anyone’s comment or height just because I don’t want to be super tall doesn’t mean I am disrespecting you lol wot.

Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 24/Nov/19
@Nik Ashton

Maybe for a woman, but for a man, it's on the short side. Like, it's not hugely short, but when you have guys averaging 5'9 at least and many others in the 5'10-6'0 category, then a 5'6er is going to feel on the small side. Although I will stipulate that height discrimination or stereotyping affects men the most compared to women. A 5ft tall woman would experience less ridicule than a 5ft tall man, for example.
Canson said on 24/Nov/19
@Ellis: you are correct. I did say that I never want to be 6’7”. Why do you have an issue with that? And If you look at my response to you from a couple days ago I clearly said “I don’t want to be”. I didn’t say you didn’t or anyone else except me and Christian also mentioned that he didnt. I don’t see what the problem is because it’s just our opinion. I also said to you in the same post that guys here who are under 6’0 have said 6’4” is too tall. I don’t take exception to it so I don’t know why you do to 6’7” being too tall. I may have said it was freakish in terms of aesthetics. That’s my personal feeling though and this is a forum dedicated to discussing heights. At the end of the day we all are what we are and have to make the best of it. I have always said that outside of sports I don’t see any reason why I would want to be that tall. But you’re different in that respect because you’re that height. I have said that to someone else on this forum who said 6’4 was too tall and that’s probably how they felt with me. That I would take that height because I already am. I understand you’re very proud of your height which is fine. You would even want an extra inch and admitted you’re insecure about that- not being 6’8” barefoot. And I’m sure some guys my height would like to be taller too but some may want to be shorter. I don’t want to be shorter than I am but don’t want to be taller either. And I would lose 2 to be 6’2 before I gained 1 inch to be 6’5. I would probably take the extra inch over 6’1 though
Canson said on 24/Nov/19
Greg said on 22/Nov/19
As for my perspective and from talking to many really tall people they seem to be saying the same thing so maybe that’s an indicator that i am right?

@Greg: But there’s a caveat there. Lol. It’s anyone except your 6’2 range friend who claims 6’5 and the one guy that you said was Christian’s height who claimed 6’9”. Or my former teammate who is a true definition of a weak 6’6 claiming 6’7” or another 6’6/6’7 guy I saw claim 6’9” once a few years ago
Sakz said on 24/Nov/19
@Edwards I never gave height a single thought until I came on here a couple of years ago so I never desired to be a certain height. I didn't even know exactly how tall I was either until I measured myself once I started posting on here. I assumed I was probably near 6'0 since my dad was just under it at his peak but I discovered I'm actually an inch taller. I do now have a casual interest in the topic which is why I visit this site. 5'11 would generally be described as tallish although it's not strange for it to be described as tall either. It's close to 6'0 after all and a lot of people just round to that so many won't know the difference. I think it's just approaching the border of tall, but then again it can give a tall impression since my dad certainly did in his youth. He could easily have passed as being taller than 6'0. Solid tall for me begins around 6'1.

He reluctantly agreed!
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 23/Nov/19
@Rob
The girth/circumference of the can matters too. If it's too skinny, there's a greater chance of the measurer measuring to the side, rather than the middle of the skull.
Editor Rob
if it's 1 inch or something then maybe some folk might struggle, but if your can is from 2 to 3 inches, that should be perfectly fine, most are around that range.
Greg said on 23/Nov/19
@Christian Rob did a pool a long time ago and 6’1 was voted as ideal although, I will argue that 6’0 and 6’2 are right up there at 6’1, we all have different preferences in terms of what we think is the ideal height.

Stats don't lie from Badoo's 60 million monthly users.

1st 5ft 8
2nd 5ft 10
3rd 5ft 6
4th 6ft

Goes to show women desire shorter men more than the media would have you believe 😎

For Women though, there's some good news
1st 5ft 5
2nd 5ft 3
3rd 5ft 7
4th 6ft 2 😍

I can imagine tens of thousands of people on 'looks' type forums getting themselves into a fit if they ever read that article about how women swipe short guys more than taller ones...

nobody should post that article on any forum about height ever, seriously! You will be downvoted into oblivion.

But the truth is, they DESIRE and want to bed 5ft 8 Men like myself more than 6 footer 🤨 😂

@Canson: I never put words into your mouth, I said you 'act' as if it is a terrible for the quality of life, I'm not gonna go comment digging, but I have a very strong feeling that you said you would never want to be 6'7, and you did say that it is 'freakish'.
@Greg: Why do so many people call me chief lol. Secondly, you came at me first with the 6'11 over 5'10 comment, completely 'disrespecting' my comment. Straight up dawg, if you are gonna disrespect me, you best believe I'm gonna disrespect you. You also said something like standing out is annoying, which is disrespecting my height again, I never disrespected your height. And yes, you do have the mindset of a 12 year old, somebody with no filter who constantly keeps arguing about nonsense. Just stop bro, really man, i'm tired of arguing with a person that I'm(well you already know).

@ sakz

agreed dude.as for me .my favourite ideal height is 6'2.i always dreamed of being 6'2 since a child but unluckily ended up at 183 cm which is 6 feet.its crazy to say and hear but even 5'11 guy can feel taller at times in usa,where i am from and in the uk.people may see and think it crazy and funny.but even a solid 5'11 guy can feel taller at times in uk and us.i also feel that 5'11 is one of the most proportional height.you can look tall with out being legit tall or tall.i feel 6 feet is solid tall in uk and us.but ofcourse it depend on people's perspective.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Nov/19
@Canson
Then there are those here who believe that 5'9"-5'10" is the perfect height for a man. Like you said, there is no universally best height, but I think if you did a poll, the most popular height would probably be 6'1".
Greg said on 22/Nov/19
@Ellis nah not work that, it doesn’t contradict anything because at no point did I say that what I am saying is 100% the truth and you are obligated to Obey it. If you don’t want too that’s on you Chief don’t know what to tell you. As for my perspective and from talking to many really tall people they seem to be saying the same thing so maybe that’s an indicator that i am right? 🤔. Not that you would understand because it seems you’re being really bias right now and are speaking for ‘yourself’ when you’re calling me a pathetic 12 year old mind set lmao. If you want to talk to people similar to yourself go on R/Tall along with all the other nonsense. You don’t make any sense at all, you want others to respect you opinion yet you don’t want to respect there’s? Nah wrong community boss, see how far that takes you. As they say ignorance and bliss and that directly relates to you.

@Arthur I swear do you just mark your calendar for random days to check up on your man crush here? He does feel above average and if he wants to wear lifts let him. Brad Pitt, Jimmy Kimmel, Fallon, and even Vin Diesel wear lifts all of them are above average.
Ganter said on 22/Nov/19
Rob how thick do the aerosol cans have to be to get an accurate measurement? I measured the width of mine and it's around 2 inches. It's also around 10.75 inches long
Editor Rob
Well it's more the length (to ensure it covers highest point of your head when you face a wall), so 2 inches wide isn't bad or anything.


You can measure with a set square which is a few mm's thick and get an accurate measurement, as long as you make sure the object is sitting or touching around middle of your head.

Potentially if you were to the side of the middle of your skull you could underbill your height by a small fraction.

@Bobby5'10 with two layers I am guessing around 1.3 inches, i've used those before with one layer and it gives around 1 inch or a bit less. So you'd be looking a good 5'11 in them!
sacredone said on 22/Nov/19
Hey rob,i went to a doctor yesterday to have some measurements,I went at around 8 at evening but i was woken for many hours since i hadn't slept very good and also was after a gym session so maybe i was at my low. I ended up measuring a solid 5'9 (175.5cm).I live in greece so we dont have feet and inches here just cm,you think i should claim 175 or 176 or that it's fine either way?
Editor Rob
It would be fine if you claimed 176cm when people ask your height.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 22/Nov/19
@Arthur!

I'm curious to see what being 6'0 feels like while out and about.
Editor Rob
Certainly more people will notice you, for each inch above average the eyeballs who glance towards you increase at an alarming rate.
Sakz said on 22/Nov/19
@James B That's interesting. I think I've seen it posted before. It goes to show being tall isn't everything and people place too much emphasis on it. I personally think it's overrated nowadays and it's younger people who give it the most thought.

@Edwards I don't have an ideal height since I prefer to go by a range. For me 5'11-6'2 is an ideal range for day to day life. I live in a town near London in England.
Arthur! said on 22/Nov/19
So Bobby is going to start wearing lifts. What happened Bobby? I thought you always felt above average and sometimes tallish in Canada
mania44 said on 22/Nov/19
Rob how tall are Jenny’s parents (in their prime) and have you ever measured them? She is quite tall for a woman, above average in the UK right?
Editor Rob
Jenny's father passed a few years ago. In his prime he was 6ft 2, by age 80 he lost near 4 inches of height and wore an elevator shoe on one foot because of 2 inch height loss through a hip break, which shattered his upper femur/hip area.

Jenny's Mother was in the 5ft 2 range peak about 5ft 1 in mid 70's.

yeah 5ft 8 is above average by 4 inches

Ellis said on 20/Nov/19
@Bobby: well said, and yes, but I'm kinda used to that, feet hanging off of the bed depends what bed it is though, and I have to duck for most doorways.
@Canson: 6'7 ain't all that bad, you act as if it is this devastating figure that is terrible for the quality of life. I happen to be 6'7, and I could tell you from my experiences that there are much more advantages than disadvantages.
@Greg: By saying something is the truth(I'm assuming your point of view), wouldn't that contradict your statement of "yet when faced with the same question he makes it sound as if you have to agree with his ideology and no way around it", if you are gonna come at me, you best have your facts straight. And yeah I'm irritated, irritated of arguing with a person that constantly blurts out nonsense. And I don't lack attention, I just thought that I could talk to someone of a similar stature about their experiences. I listen to older people and value their experiences, but for you I have gotten nothing but arguing with someone with the mindset of a 12 year old, which I find to be pathetic.

@Ellis: to “you” it’s not bad. And where did I say anything about devastating? Nowhere did I say that so please do not put words in my mouth. I said quality of life as far as fitting on airplanes, vehicles, clothes, etc are all more painful at that height than 6’4”. And You say it for the same reason I would take 6’4 over 6’1 or 6’2. Because I’m accustomed to it. And I didn’t say everyone. I said I don’t prefer that height personally. But some of the guys that are 5’9” and 5’10” here on Celebheights have also said that 6’4” was too tall. Bobby has said he wouldn’t choose 6’4 over 6’0” or 6’1”. Of course I would. I would take 6’5 perhaps over 6’0”. And I also said if it came to 5’7 vs 6’7 I would probably take 6’7”. But I just don’t take exception or insult to 6’4 not being desirable or better or too tall because it’s their opinion. I’ve said before that I don’t put anyone down who is that height but I don’t want to be 6’6 or above myself. That’s me. You do so that’s fine. I would probably take 6’2 or 6’3 over 6’5 as well but you won’t see Christian tell me that I’m calling 6’5 “bad” or “devastating” just because I wouldn’t want to be that tall over 6’2 or 6’3”.

Also what do you mean by there are more advantages than disadvantages? And what are you comparing 6’7” to? You can’t say that there are advantages or disadvantages with nothing to compare it to. That sounds like you’re biased and trying to rationalize it as a good height. I could see if you’re making an argument that it’s better than being 5’5 or 5’7” or any other height. but what advantages does a 6’7” guy have over a 6’0 or 6’2 guy or even a 5’11 guy? They’re all tall. You can probably reach certain things they can’t but short of Sports what else? I’m not seeing advantages from my perspective but maybe for you it’s different since you are. But for me personally I have a 6’0” and a 6’3 close friend who are no worse off than me at 6’4” and know many other people that are shorter than me who are no worse off than I am just because they aren’t as tall. So I don’t get what advantages you would have

@Christian
I’m surprised you’d take 5’10 over 6’7 as you’re already a strong 6’5. 5’10 over 6’10 I can understand though.

@Cmillz: I’m on the same page as Christian but I guess it varies person to person but Christian being humble is one thing. The other side of it is that he has drawbacks now at his height. Adding problems with doorways and tighter fits in vehicles and airplanes etc into the mix even gaining that extra 1.5-1.75 for him. There really is no such thing as a bad height universally because someone like Ellis is 6’7” and wants to be 6’8” so he doesn’t see it that way but 6’7” is not practical for every day living. Add to that pant sizes depending on build may be even rarer

6james94 said on 21/Nov/19
Can a stadiometer the last one you have are there models of the one you had can they measure someone two inches taller then what they're? By measuring tape I did get measured at 5'8 7/8ths in the afternoon using your method with a febreeze can, and on a stadiometer similar to the blue one you had Ive gotten what your dad got right at the edge of 5'9 though I've gotten 5'9 1/4 on it as well. I've had my height taken at doctors getting at 5'9 the tallest I know was a error they got me at 5'10 1/2 barefoot. Is there a possibility I maybe shorter then 5'8 even though I've been measure at these heights all my life since 17. I check my height a lot I keep getting just about 5'9 though I feel shorter I've measured my eyes as well and by measuring tape it's 5'4 3/8ths at night. I might sound crazy apologies.
Editor Rob
Some stadiometers might have a small error, but anything like 1 inch would be a catastrophe - the company shouldn't be manufacturing any stadiometer that doesn't measure accurately with a small margin of error.
Canson said on 21/Nov/19
@Cmillz: I agree with you. A 6’6” guy at a low may have problems even in the afternoon. They’d be 6’7” in shoes and there are still doorways that low or lower. Even a 6’8 doorway gives you an inch. Also depending on how far over 6’6” they are assuming it’s maybe 6’6 1/8” instead of 6’6” flat or 6’5 7/8 that person may very well wake up to 6’7. Some guys in that range can even lose a full inch.

@Rob Paul

Hi, Rob, could I get your opinion on these height insoles?

Click Here

I just ordered them today. They're advertised to give a total of 2 inches to your stature. The first layer is reported to give 1.2 inches while the second layer gives you a total of 2 inches.

Do you think they could give that much by looking at them? I believe you had these particular height insoles in a video before. Do you think the first layer will give exactly 1.2 inches or something closer to 1 inch instead?
Editor Rob
It's the ones I have in the shoe lifts video on youtube...as I say in that video, they don't give as much as you'd think...but still obviously give you a lift, 3/4 inch isn't to be sniffed at!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Nov/19
@cmillzz
It used to be 6'7" over 5'10", but my opinion changed. 5'10" is a pretty underrated height for a guy. It's above average, but due to inflation, most people think it's average or even below average.
Canson said on 20/Nov/19
@Rob: I saw your video of you measuring a NBA measurement hahahaha
Editor Rob
Yeah, I hope no NBA player actually ever does it though...but an inch difference in a height listing actually CAN be helpful, psychologically for a player or opponents.

It's why Klitchko wore lifts at times to intimidate opponents.
Canson said on 20/Nov/19
@Bobby: I agree with your entire post. And yep I’ve said many times that it’s easier to gain height than it is to lose it. That’s proof that it is. Meaning in Ellis’s case he could be 6’9” in shoes or closer to it other than just the morning. He said his goal is 6’8 at a low barefoot so that’s not too hard for him if he wore some of that thicker footwear to get around 6’8.5”.

@Greg: I respect Ellis’s opinion and I like him as a poster. I’ve had times when I’ve felt strongly or acted strongly on this site and it’s come across that way after I’ve read it but then I’ve had times when I clearly don’t and it still to others comes across that way. Then you have some that if you don’t agree with others it’s wrong. Ellis I don’t think is like that but I think he has strong convictions about his height and with some guys in society that’s how it is. Taller is better. I’m sure a lot of guys would take 6’7” over 5’10”. I just am not one of them even being taller myself and neither is Christian. I think that height is just too much

Editor Rob
There was a study done on it...overall it seemed to help evening height slightly like a few mm.

But I don't know about any side effects. Sometimes taking too much compounds/minerals/vitamins can have detrimental effects, so it's always worth reading up or asking a Doctor about it.
Greg said on 19/Nov/19
Rob are you going to make an updated Lewis video? I know you said he’s 6’1.25 which is a great height seeing he’s grown around 3 inches since his last measurement. I think he might grow to a solid 6’2, that’s his morning height now I am assuming. Or are you going to wait until he reaches 18? If I remember correctly he’s 17 and change right. Does he remember when his last growth spurt was? I remember the last video he was like 6’0.25-3/8ths range. I think if he really got lucky he could end up 6’3 all though since growth really slows down at 17 I know it’s unlikely but he did better than me seeing I didn’t grow more than an inch 17-18 really. Had I gotten another spurt like I did from 13-14 I would have been at least 6’0 right now because I went from 5’1 to nearly 5’6.
Editor Rob
I am not sure, but next year I will of course ask him again...it's whether he agrees is another matter though.

Some people might not want to appear in a video again. Jenny hasn't appeared in one for a while and I don't think she wants to either.
Greg said on 19/Nov/19
@Christian I would also take 5’10 over 6’10, 6’7 is not needed for me. Like if I where filled out and well proportioned at 6’4-6’5 that’s the absolute max and even then I would think 6’1-6’2 is plenty tall for me. Not a chance in hell I would want to be 7’0.
Greg said on 19/Nov/19
@Canson well said, I have no idea what’s gotten into Ellis just seems like he woke up on the wrong side of the rock today. It’s funny he’s hootin and hollerin at us for having our own beliefs yet he expects everyone else to agree with him or it’s out of the norm. I love how he calls me annoying yet he’s just mad at the truth, he is more than likely irritated because he knows I’m right in this case. Now I know I may not always be right but I know where I am coming from. He even contradicts himself in the post to you saying that it’s ‘your life and you can believe what ever you want’ yet when faced with the same question he makes it sound as if you have to agree with his ideology and no way around it (whether it’s not directly implied I can read in between the lines) usually people like that you can’t sway them from their beliefs lol. I don’t wind anybody up here, most posters like me (apart from some trolls) sure we have differences in views and beliefs but that doesn’t mean I don’t respect people. I just want to be respected if you don’t respect me I am not going to respect you back. As for Ellis I think he’s just deluded in the sense that he doesn’t want to believe that there’s other aspects to height preferences in life, not everybody wants to be super tall. Sure It’s all fun and games until you are hitting your on doorways, not finding clothes and fitting into planes and cars. And most people want to be shorter at extreme heights (usually 6’6+ outside of pro sports) and they just make use of it because what else can they do? You can’t change your height. You’re absolutely right when you say there’s no additional benefits at 6’7 then 6’4 or 6’2 unless you just want to standout so maybe Ellis lacks attention in life and wants to seek it via his height as sad and pathetic that may be ill quote him “to each their own” now the only reason he doesn’t want to fire back is because he knows I’m right and everything he’s sayin about me somehow accurately reflects himself lol. People only get upset if there’s an element of truth. I think Ellis is trying to make himself be portrayed as big and bad but he’s the opposite really I guess I’ll let him row his imaginary boat to giant island as the train for platform 7’0 is soon boarding he wouldn’t want to miss that flight. I think this drama is getting old though stop bashing people for their opinions because there’s more to life and just understand that everyone’s different.
TheBat said on 19/Nov/19
I would rather be 5'7" barefoot than 6'6"+ barefoot all day every day. I'm in the 5'10.25" to 5'10.5" range, basically above average and I feel totally fine about it. My ideal height range is normally from 5'9" to 6'3" but 6'4" or 6'5" would be okay at times.

I wouldn't worry about 1/8th difference...it is hard to say without seeing the objects.

Some cans curve at the bottom, so the part that sits on your head compared to the part nearest the wall might be slightly different heights....that's why I always used that big foam cleaner can, because when you lay the can on a work surface, the end and the part hitting your head are the same...

I think a 6’6 guy at a low could potentially have issues with door frames, at least in the morning. They’d be near 6’7 in the morning, and in footwear 6’8, or even a bit taller with some thick footwear. that’s definitely getting near doorway territory.
cmillz said on 19/Nov/19

@Johan Sorry mate just seen your response must have gotten lost with all the comments but Ike probably is 6’8 range of bed and 6’7 range at a low, he never strikes me as 6’8, he is claiming an ‘in shoe’ height. 6’7-6’7.5 is more likely for his height.
Canson said on 19/Nov/19

@Canson: Since when is making common sense out of a situation giving you sh*t? I just found it very odd that you would prefer to drastically change your appearance than just gaining a few inches, and if you feel like that, then that is okay, you have your life and I have mine so I will respect that.

@Ellis: the sense you are talking about ain’t all that common obviously. Christian just said he’d take 5’10 over 6’7” and he’s closer to it than I am. So he’s wrong too I guess? it sounds like it’s your thinking because you wish you were taller and you’re projecting it on us to rationalize the taller heights like that (which you are by the way since you are 6’7”). I don’t look at drastically changing appearance as much as I do quality of life.but I’ll agree to disagree because at least I do respect you as a poster. I just don’t agree with what you are saying and I don’t see it your way
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 19/Nov/19
@Ellis

Canson has his preferences and I have mine. At his height, I don't think he'd take anything higher than 6'5, and as he said, it's easier to gain height than it is to lose height. Like at 5'10, I can throw on a pair of cowboy boots or Timberlands to make myself seem like a 6'0 guy, but once you're 6'4, you're already mindful of certain places where you could be banging your head on certain doorways. I know for a fact that if Canson lived in my house, he wouldn't freaking fit in my basement bathroom, and you likely wouldn't even fit in my basement period, and if you did, it'd be very uncomfortable for you. So, there's a downside to being so tall in my honest opinion. I'd be satisfied with 6'1.

Johan 185 cm said on 18/Nov/19
I think it depends really on your country in a way. Some people think 6'6 + is too tall but here in the Netherlands that is not the case. Plenty of stores that have those sizes and alot of our bars/cafes are more suited to a 5'11-6" guy instead of shorter people like in the past.

I think 6'8"+ is where I draw the line as I have seen a friend struggle who is 6'10.5" but 6'5-6'7" isn't too different. Many doors are 7" here nowadays. Minimum 6'8".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Nov/19

Ellis said on 15/Nov/19
@Greg: Your stupidity is annoying me. I'll say this and make it final, it's called correcting people who think that anything above 6'5 is freakish, obviously you wouldn't know that. And even if I did say that anything under 6'0 is a different species(which I never did), you just said that, "Definitely would not want to be 6’7 or taller my goal isn’t to be a giant mountain literally it’s just extra for guys or girls who don’t have enough attention in their lives." You put words into my mouth and try to forge them against me, but that isn't gonna work, it is either that, or you are actually that incompetent, to the degree that you misquote people. I think you should be the one who needs to hit the books. And really, “celeb heights trash”? Once again, unbelievable, but understandable considering it is coming from you.
@Canson: I'm not trying to make it pro in sports lol(to clarify I'm not implying that you said that). It's just that since other people lie about it, I'm inclined to do it as well. Considering the fact that I can't have a logical conversation with Greg(not that I want to at this stage obviously), because it constantly ends in him arguing or saying some random stuff that I couldn't give two ____s about, im gassed, i don't even know what to say at this point, if he really is an adult then wow, seriously wow. I'm cutting it from here though, with Greg it never ends, he just tries to annoy you to the point where it tires you out, but I'm done with having conversations with him.

@Ellis: but what you’re saying about feeling inclined to do it because others do it is even worse. So that’s like saying if you have 6 friends who rob banks would you be the 7th and take a chance that you go down with them and lose your livelihood and your freedom? Lying about height just because others do is not a good thing or good excuse. Lying period isn’t and you do have honest people out there. So lying to an honest person or putting them in a position to have to either lie as well or argue is unfair. I had a situation the other day where a guy walked up and said what are you 6’5 or 6’6? I said no 6’4”. This guy was not near me and when he got closer he was 2” taller. He said 6’7” and my wife said how? You’ve got my husband by 2” tops. The guy came clean and said he’s 6’6 prob. So I said well if you’re really 6’6 how did you think I was 6’5 or 6’6” when you clearly knew you were taller than me? And I agree with what Bradley said below. 6’5 and 6’6 have no benefits that 6’0” or 6’1 or even 5’11 doesn’t already give you. Now I’m accustomed to my height so I’m gonna take 6’4”. But Like I mentioned before I’m gonna take 6’3 or 6’2 over 6’5 and 5’10 or 5’11 over 6’6 or more. As far as what Greg said, I don’t take that as him being that way at all. I’ve never really had an issue with Greg to be honest and I’ve never had an issue with you either

I don't see how being 6'5" is any worse than 5'10". (And I'm not saying this just because I'm 6'5" range) At times you may feel too tall during some situations, but it's not freakish like 6'7"+. I'd pick 5'10" over 6'7" though.

@Christian: You proved my point! I said 5’10 over 6’7” and Ellis gave me Sh*t. And by the way! Welcome Back!!!

I wonder what some partners think when they see people viewing celebheights, it's something I never thought about!

Anyway, if anybody was interested, the other day Big Iona/Lewis and their Mother dropped by and her Mother prompted me to check their official heights.
Big Lewis is now 6ft 1.25, this was 6pm and Big Iona 5ft 5 and 3/8ths. So both gained in last 7 months.

Their Mother got checked again and is sitting on 5ft 9 and 1/16th. She has lost less than Jenny, about 3mm and they are 1 year apart - she is a midwife, so it's an on the go job. Jenny stopped working 6 years ago and has been crafting full-time since then...yet her loss is like 1.2cm. But it's obvious to me being bent over a table working on craft projects has been the reason for her loss.
Canson said on 17/Nov/19
@Greg: the other night I had someone who was about 2” taller than me guess me at 6’6” from a distance lol. Then he said oh maybe 6’5”. I told him 6’4”. He said he was 6’7 in the morning lol and 6’6 afternoon but he claims 6’7”. Cool dude actually. I told him I claim my afternoon height. Then my wife has a 5’11 friend who said she is always guessed taller than 6’0”. I told her guys do that regularly. She’s a good 5” shorter than me. I have 6’4 on my license too.

@ sakz

yeah dude,i agree on that.its like a pyramid.i personally think about these height as
5'9 average
5'10 above average
5'11 tallish
6-6'2 tall
6'3-6'6 very tall
above 6'6 for me is extremely tall.but ofcourse,it depends on person and location.atleast in america,6 feet is a start of tall.it also depend on person and locations.

Hi Rob!

My Mum was born 97 years ago today. Christopher Lee was nearly 6-months old and my Mum had a very eventful life ahead of her to look forward to. I still have a picture of her on the beach in the nude and all embarrassed at age 4! Yes, those days, swimsuits were considered luxuries, especially if you had nothing to hide!

I remember reading recently a comment which said that everybody wears shoes. Not kids in the War, though. My Dad had twins in his class and they had to take it in turns to wear the shoes to school. Yes, we don't know how lucky we are!

Have a great Sunday everybody!

Sakz said on 17/Nov/19
@Edwards Physically of course it's not a big difference. People usually also separate them against the average so if it's 5'9 that would make 6'0 just barely tall as it's 3 inches above. 6'1 is obviously 4 inches above so it's more comfortable tall.
Greg said on 16/Nov/19
@Canson Yeah 6’0-6’2 is tall but for me 6’2 is very tall I think if it’s 5 inches above the average that’s enough to be very tall just not really stand out, which would start closer to 6’3-6’4. As what what you where saying about height boosters I agree, I’ve seen plenty of my 5’7-5’8 friends claim or list their drivers license as 5’10 when they don’t even look close to the mark. It’s funny I know a guy who has 5’9 on his license which is an honest figure for him yet he claims 5’10-5’11 as I noticeably edge him. It’s really taking the piss when guys my height or a bit taller claim 6’0 (unless it’s their morning height then I don’t think that’s bad) but if you’re not even 6’0 in shoes don’t expect to get away with the claim. I have a friend who used to claim 6’1 and even said his dentist measured him at 6’2 (which is insane and before this I didn’t realize dentists take your height lol) he has 6’0 on his license though and I think he tried saying he’s almost 6’1. Yet between us there’s really only 1 inch range he might fall to like 5’11.25-5’11 3/8ths so 6’0 isn’t bad but he would claim 6’1 for the longest time. I think I’ve mentioned the case of my wrongly measured 6’0 friend who used to claim 6’3 and have it on his license, I think know he claims either 6’0 or 6’1, at least he looks 6’1 in air maxes but can’t imagine him claiming 6’3 to an honest legit 6’3 guy.
But this one guy who’s a mutual friend claims 6’0 when we are literally at eye level, he claims it’s a doctors measurement yet it’s just not possible. He’s close to my height I am not sure who’s taller he often styles his hair up to make himself look taller, I think I might edge him a bit but my friend doesn’t understand hair isn’t part of your body so he thought he was. I think realistically he would measure 5’10 range, his friend who’s about 6’2 also claims 6’4 of course. Also another guy who’s a textbook 5’9 thought he was 6’0. On his license he had 5’11, I was like where did my mans get this measurement did he pull it out of his rear end, then when he claimed 6’0 to me and asked my height I said “almost 5’11” I wanted him to really understand how ridiculous he would sound” and he was like “no way you’re taller” he was trying to guess me at 6’1 or something to make his bs claim work and I said “no I’m only 5’11 right out of bed” and then he tried guessing our other friend who was like 6’2 range (also claims morning height so 6’3) but he was trying to stretch him to 6’4-6’5. And My other friend who swears he’s 5’11 is like that too he thinks his drivers license is a valid proof of height, “like bro I’m 5’11 my doctor measured me and it says it on my DL” I’m like you realize I’m taller than you?” He then argued no way I’m taller. (He has a big ego and he refuses to believe he is shorter) his proportions are bad too so he always looks 5’9 range never over never under if I where to guess he wouldn’t measure over 5’9.5 in the noon and may very well drop to 5’9.25-5’9 3/8ths range 5’10 and 5’11 are 100% out of the equation though. So get a load of this, he guessed me at 6’0 before and even asked me if I was sure that I wasn’t 6’0 I said “I wish but no I measured my height too many damn times by now to not know my actual measurements”. I mentioned earlier in the beginning of the year my other friends tried saying we where the same height? The problem was I realized why because my posture was back and I curved my spine and tilted my head backwards so when you do that you drop height (I can not stand well) I have to practice having good posture which is likely why some guys think they are taller when it’s likely the other way around. Plus we where standing on carpet and they where used a pool stick to compare I told them that’s not how you do it, you need an actual can against the wall measurement. So we placed a 100 dollar bet my one friend and I to see if I really am an inch taller, it’s ironic because back then he guessed me already an inch taller we where in similar footwear on flat ground but now he wants to go back on his statement lol. The issue is he rarely comes out he uses anxiety as an excuse but he’s also over dramatic because he goes out when he wants to the park, to stores and to her alcohol I remember before he mentioned he wants to be a hermit and not interact with people. He’s a really strange guy but if I can manage to get him out along with my other friend I want to do that measurement and prove it once and for all. But I bet he’s going to try and contest the tape and say something is wrong, it will put a dent in his ego knowing he’s not 5’11 and more 5’9ish.

@Canson

I think that provided a man is at most 5 inches taller than a woman, then there shouldn't be any issues when it comes to dating. Of course, not all women are superficial enough to expect a 6ft tall man, but I imagine that taller women, at least 5'8, are going to wish for a minimum of a 6'0 to 6'1 man. I don't know how any more likely a 5'10 guy would get into a relationship versus a 6'0 man, but most surveys I have seen have suggested a height very close to 5'10 as being ideal for men, by women, for the dating pool. So, plus or minus 3 inches from the initial starting point of 5'10. So, it would look like this: 5'10-6'1. The U.K survey suggested that 5'11 was ideal for men and 5'6 was ideal for women. This further suggests a height difference of 5 inches was considered optimal, but I don't know if this difference was in heels or barefoot. My guess would be barefoot but a lot of women that have 6'0 mark in mind because they wear heels. Like a 5'4 woman who throws on big heels is going to end up 5'8 and appear two inches smaller than a 5'10 guy, but barefoot, the difference is much greater. Though once again, overall, if I had to be stuck with one height the rest of my life, it would be 6'1. I know Greg's is 6'2, but 6'2 starts to stand out and I prefer to blend in while still being that tall guy, if that makes any sense to you. So, in many ways, being 5'10 has its merits because I'm not short enough to be disadvantaged with women, but not so tall that I stand out or have trouble finding clothes my size, or hitting my head on doorways or being cramped on planes and buses.

I don't see how being 6'5" is any worse than 5'10". (And I'm not saying this just because I'm 6'5" range) At times you may feel too tall during some situations, but it's not freakish like 6'7"+. I'd pick 5'10" over 6'7" though.
Canson said on 16/Nov/19
@Viper: 6’5 isn’t that bad. I measure it out of bed. I’d take it over 5’10 but I’d take 6’2 or 6’3 over 6’5”. 6’0” or 6’1” maybe not. Anything over 6’5 I agree is a bit much

@ sakz

yes dude i agree on that but its really hard to separate a guy who measures 183/184 and a guy who is flat 6’1,as i have already told that 6’1 looks much taller than 6 when it comes to percentile but i personally dont see much difference or atleast a bigger difference physically.i am 183/183.5 cm as i am always guessed as 6’1.one dude who i know is flat 6’1 and most think we are very similar in height.yes but i agree with you that it’s a jump in percentile

@ canson

i fully agreed with everything you’ve said dude.
edwards said on 15/Nov/19
@ canson

yes dude ageed.i fully agree that how folks have underestimated a legit 6 foot guy.people underestimate how a proper 6’0” actually looks because so many 5’10” and 5’11 guys claim 6’0” and so many 5’8-5’9 even shorter sometimes claim 5’10.i could have claimed 6’1 but i’m rather honest and claimed 6.most of the dude’s of my height who measures 183/183 1/4 claims 6’1 or even 6’2.yeah it may not be much tall but i’m sure it is tall.i feel i am taller than 8/10 people.and i feel that all most in all the state here in the states.yes dude agreed that your friend claims 5’11” most of the time now which may be a stretch but if he can measure 5’10.5 afternoon which he may, that’s just rounding up which is fair.while most of the folks of my height claims 6’1 or even 6’2.most of the people think that 6 feet isn’t tall because all the folks who are 5’10 and 5’11 claims it but a real measured 6 footer is tall atleast here in all the states of united states of america.i can believe and still see that average lies in 5’9 here in america.the average isnt in 5’10 and i’m sure on it.maybe it is 5’9 and change and people round up to 5’10.the average is not 5’10.it is 100% 5’9,i am 3 inch above average and feel 8/10 men.i can see even younger folks around 5’9.5 but not 5’10.and dude i also agree that most of the people if not all lies about height.i’ve been to all the state except alaska and feel average is closer to 5’9 than 5’10.all those 49 states have around 5’9 average.and i didnt get that how people think 6’1 is much taller than 6 lol.i personally think that 6’1 is just a advance or improved verson of 6.as i already told,i am 183 cm generally and maybe even few mm over it sometimes.there is a dude who is flat 6’1 and while we are walking most of the people couldn’t separate and think we are very similar.i have too add that i have very long hair.how do you feel dude while walking in the street,you should feel solid tall at 6’4,even at only 6’ i feel tall.
Ellis said on 15/Nov/19
@Greg: Your stupidity is annoying me. I'll say this and make it final, it's called correcting people who think that anything above 6'5 is freakish, obviously you wouldn't know that. And even if I did say that anything under 6'0 is a different species(which I never did), you just said that, "Definitely would not want to be 6’7 or taller my goal isn’t to be a giant mountain literally it’s just extra for guys or girls who don’t have enough attention in their lives." You put words into my mouth and try to forge them against me, but that isn't gonna work, it is either that, or you are actually that incompetent, to the degree that you misquote people. I think you should be the one who needs to hit the books. And really, “celeb heights trash”? Once again, unbelievable, but understandable considering it is coming from you.

There's no benefit being 6' 5" or 6' 6", trust me, I know. I'd take 5'9" and look like Don Johnson for everything I own. 6 feet isn't all. You'd be laughed at by telling a 6 footer "Hey man yer fairly tall".
Progking said on 15/Nov/19
@Edwards yeah i agree 6'0 is hardly different, many people guess me at that height to be 6'1-6'2. I still think its barely tall and 6'1 is more legit. But 6'0 is a great height, you just make it to tall(especially if you are 6'0.5 like i measure in the early afternoon). And you will still be considered tall by many people
Sakz said on 15/Nov/19
@Edwards 1 inch is significant when it comes to a barefoot height. Not physically but in terms of how much taller you are than the rest. I consider 6'0 weak tall and 6'1 solid tall and if you look at the percentile you'll see why. It's the same reason why most would consider 6'2 tall and 6'3 very tall. It's only 1 inch but the jump in percentile is fairly big and enough to separate the two.

rob how can some one even say that 6 feet is fairly tall and 6'1 is solid tall,how is that even a argument.one cant pick or see a difference between a solid 6 feet and 6'1 guys.honestly,most people cant tell the difference.a solid 6 feet like 183/183.5 guy and a 6'1 guy,i am 183 cm and my friend is 6'1 flat and most cant see the difference and think we are similar in height.maybe only in percentile that 6'1 is much taller than 6 feet 1, i cant see much diference between a guy who is solid 6 and a guy who is 6'1. solid 6 feet guy can be easily be guesed as 6'1 or even 6'2 at times with thick shoes.most folks dont see 6 feet as solid tall because all the folks who measure 5'10.5 or 5'11 claim to be 6 feet but a legit strong 6 feet like 183 is solid tall imho and a solid 6 guy can easily pull 6'1 at times.what is your opinion rob?
Editor Rob
Remember every inch you go up, you are now taller than every level below, it's like a pyramid. Not only does the 6ft 1 man become an inch taller than every 6 footer, he is now 2 inches on the 5ft 11 guys and so on.

Of course 1 inch isn't really that much, but for each inch above average, the pool of people within each division decreases dramatically.

@Edwards: I agree with you. I have 6’0-6’2 as tall. I think above 6’2” afternoon height maybe 6’2.5-6’3 range starts very tall. Anything up to about 6’6 is very tall still. Once above this maybe 6’6.5 or 200cm starts extremely tall. In your case you’re Tall. People underestimate how a proper 6’0” actually looks because so many 5’10” and 5’11 guys claim 6’0” and so many 5’8-5’9 even shorter sometimes claim 5’10”. I have one friend who used to list himself 6’1” on his license. He always said he was 5’11 1/2” by his own admission. He then changed his license to 6’0” and I always questioned 5’11.5”. He came clean and said he’s 5’11.5 in shoes lol. 5’10.5 seems more accurate as it’s roughly half foot between us. To his credit he never inflated others at least. He claims 5’11” most of the time now which may be a stretch but if he can measure 5’10.5 afternoon which he may, that’s just rounding up which is fair. I also remember once when one guy asked what are you 6’5-6’6? At the time I was in a 1” sneaker I think. I’m 1/4” over 6’4 afternoon so I would’ve been 6’5 1/4” in sneaks but I always claim 6’4”. I told him 6’4 and he said how? I’m 6’0”. I looked down and he’s my buddy’s height. I told him he lies about his height and he got defensive. A girl who was standing there even agreed with me and he made all types of excuses.
Greg said on 14/Nov/19
@Ellis you’re brain dead I’m not arguing with someone who likely didn’t learn how to comprehend basic knowledge, I have know ego and even if I where to have feelings it wouldn’t be hurt by the likes of you 😛. Yes I did call you Pathetic and it has nothing to do with your height, more so you’re lack of understanding. Sounds like you have the ego based on what you have been saying on here. All your messages are nonsense and I’m not surprised somebody who is uneducated like yourself doesn’t understand, I highly recommend hitting the books then. You said “5’10 guys are a different species” like what are you talking about? Last time I checked we are all the same species unless you’re saying you are some kind of circus freak robot who was programmed by a mad scientist which isn’t out of the equation just yet. Okay you’re about 6’7 so you’d be like 8.5 inches taller than me, what do you want a cookie? I’m 8’5 inches taller than a 5’2 guy but does that mean anything? It literally does NOT. Like at all, sorry to burst your bubble, make sure you don’t hit the door frame on the way out buddy boy 😉. Yeah you claim 6’9 in basketball circles, you claiming anything other than 6’7 at that stage shows insecurity and just lack of self awareness.

@Canson fair I am not a fan of Ellis and he seems not like me either so it works out for the best. He’s what I would call “celeb heights trash” there’s two breeds trolls and trash he falls under the 2nd catagory. He’s definitely being biased and rude towards people who don’t look at things like he does and he considers guys under 6’0 a different species. Sounds like a really dumb and ignorant thing to say but I’m not surprised because I imagine him as one big walking circus act. Now I wouldn’t mind being taller as long as I fit the frame so even though 6’5 wouldn’t be that bad but I would want to have good proportions and a muscular frame otherwise I would not want to be a walking bean pole. 6’2 is plenty tall for me, I’m not even saying what I’m used to because I could say 6’0 since I’m closer to it but I don’t think there’s a point being over 6’2-6’3 really 6’4 isn’t a bad height just if I can’t fill the frame out I don’t have a desire to he said height. Definitely would not want to be 6’7 or taller my goal isn’t to be a giant mountain literally it’s just extra for guys or girls who don’t have enough attention in their lives.

Greg said on 13/Nov/19
@Ellis Insecure? You don’t make any sense you contradicted yourself you are insecure about you’re height at 6’7 and want to be taller yet you want to standout. There’s no benefits to being 7’0 or close to it over 6’7 unless you want more people to stare at you and ask your height. I would find that bloody annoying if I was 6’7 I would claim that or something. No point in claiming morning height especially in shoe height at that height, exactly what I was telling Canson and he sees my point.

@Greg: At least he owned up to it but at that height there’s no reason to be insecure about not being taller. If anything i would expect some to not like getting the attention and standing out the way he does. But what you said I agree with. I would just claim 6’7”. Hell Even if he were 6’7.5 afternoon height I may be inclined to still round down to 6’7” or say a bit over. When you’re taller like that or even at my height or an inch or two shorter than me, there’s no reason to want to be taller unless you have NBA or NFL aspirations and have a bonafide chance. Otherwise that type of height that he’s talking 6’8 barefoot 6’9 in shoes afternoon height is just entirely too much if you can’t use it for anything. Honestly, how many people make it pro in Sports?

@Bobby: I know from my friends’ experience That those heights Ellis is talking about aren’t any more useful than being 6’2 or 6’3 or 6’4”. As far as Dating women etc. most women think true 6’6 and 6’7 barefoot guys are 6’8 and 6’9 lol. They hear that 6’8” number and except to see a 6’6” barefoot guy due to the lying. That’s too tall to them. Unless they know what it looks like and like taller guys. Lots of taller friends of mine are still single. My 6’5.25 friend and I are the only two that currently are married and he just got married last year. The other two while both have been in long term relationships neither is married

Ellis said on 12/Nov/19
@Greg: Okay I'm not even gonna comment on that last bit because it made absolutely no sense. And once again, if I'm a full head taller than you, I believe that is a bit more(and that is saying it lightly), then towering someone. Also, yes I am 6'9 in shoes, and if you were actually able to do the math that is not rounded up. I'm a solid 6'9 in shoes in the morning, which is the height I claim in basketball circles. And using words like pathetic, saying that my height is the only thing I have going for me which is worlds from being true, and I'm a different species now? You sound a bit salty, take it easy man relax, by the sounds of it I hurt your ego, did I hurt your ego?

@Ellis: I do not think Greg is salty. However, the rounded up part. You would only measure 6’9” in shoes for a very short period of time. It would be rounded up after about half an hour. I’m assuming you’d be under 6’7.75 by that point which is the only way you’d be 6’9” in shoes (1.25” basketball shoe). That’s if we are being technical about it. Of course if you round 6’8.5 in shoes up then it would be for a few hours. But I don’t get the “in basketball circles” why you claim that. That’s 2” above your actual height. I played college ball myself and I never claimed to be 6’6” even though I was listed at that. As far as the ego thing Greg mentioned, you just admitted to me that you’re insecure about your height and wish you were 6’8” at a low. So the ego does tie into it somewhere along the lines I’m sure. To each it’s own but As I said earlier you will want that height up until you actually hit it (if you get any taller to that stage). Then you may think otherwise as I’m sure it’s more of an inconvenience. As far as women go, I hear my taller friends both of whom have been single for part of their adult lives, say they have problems dating because they’re too tall. Women tell the 6’6 one he’s too tall all the time so the 6’7” one must get hell whether he knows it or not. He’s the exact same height as you are except that he claims 6’7” and doesn’t hit 6’8” Morning height. He said 6’7.75-7/8. And the latter is a physical specimen. In the best shape And very chiseled for someone who is your size (6’7 afternoon height)

Once I chased a ticket inspector who was after my money! I poked my erstwhile @rse in his direction - and farted at him!

Bert thought it was hilarious! 😂👍

I'd take 5-10 over 6-5.

Anything over 6-4 is too tall
Greg said on 13/Nov/19
@Ellis Insecure? You don’t make any sense you contradicted yourself you are insecure about you’re height at 6’7 and want to be taller yet you want to standout. There’s no benefits to being 7’0 or close to it over 6’7 unless you want more people to stare at you and ask your height. I would find that bloody annoying if I was 6’7 I would claim that or something. No point in claiming morning height especially in shoe height at that height, exactly what I was telling Canson and he sees my point.

@ editor rob

rob how can some one even say that 6 feet is fairly tall and 6'1 is solid tall,how is that even a argument.one cant pick or see a difference between a solid 6 feet and 6'1 guys.honestly,most people cant tell the difference.a solid 6 feet like 183/183.5 guy and a 6'1 guy,i am 183 cm and my friend is 6'1 flat and most cant see the difference and think we are similar in height.maybe only in percentile that 6'1 is much taller than 6 feet 1, i cant see much diference between a guy who is solid 6 and a guy who is 6'1. solid 6 feet guy can be easily be guesed as 6'1 or even 6'2 at times with thick shoes.most folks dont see 6 feet as solid tall because all the folks who measure 5'10.5 or 5'11 claim to be 6 feet but a legit strong 6 feet like 183 is solid tall imho and a solid 6 guy can easily pull 6'1 at times.what is your opinion rob?
Editor Rob
Remember every inch you go up, you are now taller than every level below, it's like a pyramid. Not only does the 6ft 1 man become an inch taller than every 6 footer, he is now 2 inches on the 5ft 11 guys and so on.

Of course 1 inch isn't really that much, but for each inch above average, the pool of people within each division decreases dramatically.

@Ellis no ones offended lol it’s just you don’t dwarf anybody unless they are 5’7, so if you’re a legit 6’7 than you can say you dwarf a 5’7 guy I’ve never been Intimidated by guys your size there was even a guy taller than you at my gym who’s a legit 6’9 (although I heard he claims 6’11) and even around him I didn’t feel dwarfed just towered. Also not a fake 6’9 like you claiming your morning height rounded up + in shoes that’s just pathetic at your height. People always want more no one is every satisfied. Why do you want to stick out is it because your height is the only thing you have going for you lmfao? That’s what it seems like. Also why would Canson be insecure about being 6’4? Do you hear yourself talk right now? Why would he be lying have you personally met him and measured him or something? It’s probably not your height, it’s your ego that’s scaring the girls away... what do you mean that ‘they are a different species?’ Sounds like you’re a different species.
@Jddubz you’re entitled to your opinion as I am entitled to mine, it’s not offensive just not true personally because you have to be a minimum of a foot taller to dwarf someone, a legit 5’10 guy would never feel dwarfed by a sub 6’9 guy, I didn’t even feel dwarfed by the 6’9 range guy just towered. No not really it’s not a dwarf difference, 5-7 inches is towering dwarfing starts at around a foot for me.

@Canson I think 6’0 is the best height I will always advocate that is why my ideal range is between 5’11-6’2 I will even throw 5’10.5” in there since it’s my height and it’s not far from 5’11/6’0. 6’4 can work but like I said you have to have the frame and proportions for t otherwise you look lanky and goofy. I would take 5’10 over 6’7 any day, I don’t want to stand out like a circus act and potentially get bombarded By questions on my height. Also people are more likely to inflate/overestimate you at that height which would be even more bloody annoying. 6’11 is obviously way too tall, unless you’re a professional basketball player or security guard/bouncer there’s no point plus you would get more drawbacks then benefits. Even though 6’5 isn’t on my preference list I would choose that over 6’7+. 6’3 is probably the tallest most efficient height I would say again with the right frame and such. But I agree most really tall people except the different species select few Brady bunch on celeb heights want to be shorter.

@Greg: you in essence summarized exactly what I was saying in my response to Ellis. You said that 6’3” is the most you’d want to be. I said 6’4 only because that’s what I am today. It shows that it varies from person to person like I said. I think he’s seeing it from his POV only with how I should choose. It will vary so while I respect his opinion since he already is that height, I think practically. Not to pick on anyone that size or taller because it’s not my intent but I would prefer not to have to deal with more headache. But I say it also because you said up to 6’3” and your ideal is more 6’0-6’2 really whereas mine would probably be 6’2-6’4 or 6’2-6’5 range since I am accustomed to it now so it proves my point of how it varies person to person. I really don’t get how someone can be insecure at 6’7” that they aren’t taller. I like Ellis too. And I’ve said to many people here over the past 4-5 years as you can attest that claims become irrelevant and once you hit a certain point others have said it that the benefits really begin to diminish as you just said as well. Christian has also said that being 6’5 plus. While he said he would take 6’7 over 5’10” because it’s close to his height, he has also said that he would take 6’2 over his current height. Meaning his preferences are similar to mine in the top 5 as they were very similar with the exception of him having 6’3” as his ideal height and 6’4” being mine.

@Greg: Okay I'm not even gonna comment on that last bit because it made absolutely no sense. And once again, if I'm a full head taller than you, I believe that is a bit more(and that is saying it lightly), then towering someone. Also, yes I am 6'9 in shoes, and if you were actually able to do the math that is not rounded up. I'm a solid 6'9 in shoes in the morning, which is the height I claim in basketball circles. And using words like pathetic, saying that my height is the only thing I have going for me which is worlds from being true, and I'm a different species now? You sound a bit salty, take it easy man relax, by the sounds of it I hurt your ego, did I hurt your ego?

@Canson

I agree with your posts. I personally don't see any benefits beyond maybe 6'4, but I'd be happy enough being 6'0 or 6'1. I'm not looking to stand out, but being tall enough to be noticeably taller than average height people is good enough. I also imagine that finding a tall enough woman to date would be difficult as well. Not many women are 6'0 or taller.
Canson said on 12/Nov/19
@Ellis: I also want to add that I have been 5’10” at one point In my life. Never been 6’7” and from what I see on people that are that tall, it’s not practical and doesn’t look very good in general having to duck and squeeze in etc. not saying it’s bad because others may think it’s practical. For me however it’s too much

No snow here, some winters over last decade have been quite sparse, but you can always guarantee every other day it will be raining though!
Canson said on 12/Nov/19
@Greg: while Ellis can’t control his height, I still don’t get the claiming of shoes in the morning etc. at that stage if I were him I’d be claiming 6’7”. That’s tall enough. I don’t get why he wants to be taller. I could see someone who’s maybe 5’9 or 5’10 or 5’11 wanting to be 6’0”. But knowing my 6’6 and 6’7 friends who are both 40 they have been around long enough to know that they would lose inches as would I at 6’4, than gain them. The only height that I would even consider that is taller is 6’5” in my top 5-6. But comparing 6’4 to 6’5 I’m going with 6’4. Comparing 6’2 or 6’3 to 6’5 I’d take the two former over 6’5”. Maybe at 6’1” I’d go with 6’5” but it would take sub 5’10” to remotely consider 6’6”. Were talking 5’10-6’5 before taking 6’6”. It would come down to 5’8 or 5’9” versus 6’6”. 6’6 isn’t as bad but it’s pushing it. And I say it because at your size 5’10 or 5’11” you could do things with footwear etc to make yourself appear taller. When 6’7 or 6’8 becomes too much and burdensome you’re stuck with it. There is no way to reduce it. Slouching maybe but that will look bad in public
Canson said on 12/Nov/19
Ellis said on 11/Nov/19
@Canson: I am insecure, I would like to be 6'8 at a low. I never said that I'm 6'9 in the morning, I did saying wearing shoes I am, but I always made that notion. I just find it comical that your number 1 height is 6'4, and you would go to pick a height that is much lower then it(5'10) over picking a height that is a few inches taller than it(6'7). You get me?

@Ellis: I don’t get why you’re insecure about that. 6’7” is already extremely tall and more than enough. And I don’t find it comical at all. I wouldn’t want to be a height where I am hitting my head on doorways and constantly being inconvenienced and exploited or the height being made a big deal in public. I would take 6’5 over 5’10” but not 6’7”. And I said to Jdubbz what I did about your 6’9” In shoes is what your claim is. I didn’t say barefoot I clearly said in shoes. Greg said you claim 6’9” but he’s referring to the same thing I said which is in shoes. Re-read what I said. But I’m not walking around claiming a shoe height or wishing I were taller than I actually am either. I am 6’4.25 and claim 6’4”. So maybe because you’re young and still have NBA aspirations. What do you do when you don’t make the NBA? Do you still want to be 6’8” barefoot at a low? Or even taller? It’s unnecessary to be that tall and not using it for anything. And people will ask why you are so tall and didn’t make the NBA. I know because my taller 6’6 and 6’7” friends get it now. They get tired of being asked about their height

@Greg: agreed. With both posts

@cmillzz

Yeah, I'd say 5'7 is borderline short for a guy but a big 5'7 can look about borderline average overall. I would say that 5'8.5 is as average as average gets though. I don't understand how anyone could say 5'10 is average height, at most, maybe 5'9 for younger generations.

@Canson

I don't think ignoring or not consideratng morning height makes it invalid. It doesn't change what a person measures out of bed. It should still be taken into account and most people probably claim a late morning measurement or early afternoon measurement.

An early afternoon should closely resemble the normal low. If not it’s gonna be equivalent to 5 hours out of bed. So that would be equivalent to you measuring either 5’9.75 or 5’9 7/8. People here tend to misunderstand Rob’s methodology

@Canson

of course my height is not on the tops of my list simply because 5'9.2 - 5'9.5 is not an ideal height . it is decent and I am not unhappy ...but I am realistic and will not put it high only because it is my height ....so I dont know what exactly you are making out of this

Im not making anything of it C-Mo but i say it because it comes across as if you hate your height. But in terms of ideal. There is no such thing as “ideal” universally. It’s gonna vary from one person to the next. You have heights like 5’11” 6’0” and 6’1” as your ideal heights whereas I have heights close to my own such as 6’4” 6’3” 6’2” and maybe 6’5 as my preferences. There’s nothing wrong with either preferences tho but it will vary based on current experiences

Hi Rob,

I had some terrible news last night. My friend, of whom I have frequently written about, (he followed me onto the train with that Peter Cook and Dudley Moore tape and saw Bob Harris with me) is reputed to have died. He'll have been 67 or 68. Although my Dad never met him, he chatted with him on the phone and liked him. Sometimes, that's all you need to get to know someone. I phoned Dad last night in tears (and Nik), and they are both upset.

He was generous to a fault. He even gave me the Cook/Moore tape, 'Derek and Clive Live', and I played it to my Mum, giggling. She retorted, "All you've got on your mind is NONSENSE!"

She liked him as well. His nickname from schooldays was Bert and it stuck. His real name was Adrian and he looked like a long-haired, mad genius as he went about his business, making things!

RIP Bert XXX

Shoulder height is a tricky one because of how a lot of shoulders slope, I would need to think about that one.
Greg said on 10/Nov/19
@Ellis well it doesn’t matter and I didn’t say that you said 5’10 was a bad height, there’s no such thing as a good or bad height. You wouldn’t dwarf a 5’10 guy, definitely tower them but not dwarf for me dwarfing someone would be over a foot, so you would have to be like 6’10 if not 7’0 to dwarf a 5’10 guy, I would never want to be your height no offense. Standing out is annoying, I would rather be a legit tall even wouldn’t mind Cansons height but that’s at the absolute maximum if I could fill out the frame and have the same good proportions as I do now. But 6’0-6’2 would be good enough for me. Also I don’t get why you already talk guys have to lie, claiming 6’9? What’s that going to do? I don’t get get what additional benefits you would receive from it.
Greg said on 10/Nov/19
@heightguesser157 Just measure yourself with a tape and aerosol can and look at the results, what time of day are you measuring? If you’re 5’11 flat after a few hours of walking around you’re a legit 5’11 guy, I am 5’11 first thing out of bed but quickly drop to 5’10.5 in the afternoon. Some devices do have an error I remember measuring myself with my gyms stadiometer and it’s very flimsy so I got either 177 or 178,5 then 179 at night I should be 178.5 range so it was giving me the wrong results. I never drop below 178cm even at an extreme low which I haven’t reached in a while. Doctors once measured me on a stadiometer that was mounted on a wall on carpet I think I would have been 5’10.4-.5 range seeing I was a few hours out of bed but it undermeasured me by like a bit. So the best way to find out is measuring yourself at home using Robs method.
