How tall is Rob Paul

Rob Paul's Height

5ft 8 ⅛ (173 cm)

I created CelebHeights.com in 2004 as an entertainment site about Celebrity Height. I measure 5ft 8 ⅛in at night, which is usually about the height I am in most photos with celebrities. First thing in the morning, I measure around 5ft 8 ¾in. For some height-related videos check out my Youtube channel. As of June 2018 my weight is 169.5 pounds and measure close to 5ft 8.25 at lunchtime.

@Bobby: Yes, on average on would expect logically at the margin that those that have longer torso's will lose more height over the course of a day. I also think lifestyle cannot be ignored. If my profession was in security which may involve hours of standing or walking across sites. I'm pretty sure I would be losing about 2 cm or a hair over rather than 1.6/1.7 cm. The physical activity it takes to get some to what they perceive as their "absolute low" may be another person's typical everyday low. This may apply in Peter179 cm's case.

@Canson: I see...so in the majority of cases you encounter a height inflated claim is on "purpose" in the sense that they truly know what they measure already?

@Andrea

How tall are you? I've heard that you're 5'0" or 5'1" but is that true?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Oct/18
@Bobby

Most people who lose 2.5cm are usually over 6'7". Even me at my size, I lose right around 2cm. I only lose 2.5-3cm when I go down to my extreme low.
Andrea said on 14/Oct/18
Yeah, Tunman. Although they are a minority, there are definitely some posters I always enjoy reading (and you're certainly one of them). When I read certain names though, most of the time I simply skip those comments and/or don't even bother to answer because I know it's a complete waste of time (both reading and answering)...
As for Italy, certain cities like Rome are definitely full of tourists, especially in the summer, so it is certainly not surprising to hear that you saw more tourists than Italians, LOL. That being said, I'd say the overall average is somewhere in 5'9 range and closer to 5'10 for younger people, so probably not much different than countries like UK and US. Though I think in southern Italy it's lower than in northern (where I live).
Sakz said on 14/Oct/18
@Zampo I also seem to remember someone making that comment. I mean I know people on here are precise but that took the biscuit and just made me chuckle.

Hi everyone! What would you guess my height at? Click Here
Canson said on 14/Oct/18
@Bobby: I’ve only been around here for 3 years but I don’t recall Andrea ever mentioning his height even in posts that I’ve seen prior to me coming to this site
Ronald Timbs said on 14/Oct/18
Hi Rob I'm 6ft 2.25in in shoes would I come across as 6'2" guy, would it be believable if i claimed 6ft 2.
Editor Rob
I think we should claim our barefoot height. I personally wouldn't go with 6ft 2, but somewhere in 6ft 1-2 range, depending how thick your shoes are.
wishbone said on 14/Oct/18
Since you'll soon be adding 5' Cathy Rigby to Celebheights (hopefully by her Dec.12 birthday),how about next adding heights of some great professional bowlers? They're people,too!
Editor Rob
I don't think bowlers get searched for much (in terms of height).

@Gylfi Then You were 178cm at 16 right?

@ Rob - How tall is Tim Wonnacott these days?
Editor Rob
Could be 5ft 10 at most
Canson said on 12/Oct/18
@Zampo: yes a couple times. A friend of mine who is almost my size (1/4-3/8”) shorter and I measured because he kept claiming 6’5 and he’s nowhere near it. Then my 6’3 friend measured all of us one night which included me, my 6’6 friend and 6’7 friend. I have measured him before a couple times but he didn’t do it because he didn’t believe us. It was to see exactly how tall we are. We are all honest. And we have a 6’5 friend who asked me to measure him once because he, like Christian, kept getting guessed 6’6 and 6’7”. He’s 6’5.25 at night. The only other time(s) I’ve been present are when I watched my one buddy (same 6’5 friend) grab one from his toolbox because this one guy kept telling him (first) then me that we were taller than we were (lying about our height is what he said) and that we can’t prove it. He was egging him on and me so he got it out. The guys face changed quickly
Bobby said on 12/Oct/18
@Zampo

Maybe those who are over 6ft would fall in the 2.5cm range on the average. Michael R, for example, woke up at 6'2.5 and went all the way down to 6'1.5, at a normal low. Peter179cm wakes up at almost 182cm but goes down to 179cm. So, something from 181.5 to 179cm is exactly 2.5cm, and Peter said he always kept himself well hydrated too.
Bobby said on 12/Oct/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8"

I could be mistaken myself, but I remember when the user heights page was still active, and Andrea mentioned something about their stature being around 5ft tall. Maybe I misread, but Rob would surely have it on record.
Editor Rob
I have no idea of his height
Connor Simpson said on 12/Oct/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" oh ok I must have got that wrong then, that seems more likely anyway because I heard a lot of men in Italy are quite short.
Andrea said on 12/Oct/18
I am well aware of all you said, Zampo, and that was exactly my point: mocking those kind of posters and posts, which I honestly find ridiculous and surreal.
And yeah, I totally agree with you that many comments on here are pure fantasy (probably even more than 50%), and I always take with a large pinch of salt what people say (including how tall they claim to be), although I consider myself a pretty good judge of character and I generally understand which posters are honest and which ones are not, by simply reading their comments. Though some posters are so naive to buy anything that gets said on here...
Tunman said on 12/Oct/18
@Andrea
Lol,I'm reading now your comment of 9th October,it didn't appear before today for some reason.Don't think it's because I trust everything that is said on this site but more because I know you're not the kind to bring nonsense here.I was indeed surprised by the fact that your friends let you measure them,knowing how difficult it is to admit the truth and the 180,89 made me rise an eyebrow but didn't pay more attention
Anyways,apart from Rob's comments,there's maybe 20-30% of comments who are worth reading including Alex,Arch,formerly Demeyer and Shredder,also some current posters.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Oct/18
@Andrea

I've seen a few who inflate 8cm, although it's in the minority.
James B 172cm said on 11/Oct/18
Rob does this guy really look 8ft tall?

Editor Rob
Well he says it in the video - 7 feet and 8 1/3rd inch.
But I'm sure gets guessed as tall as 8 feet!
Canson said on 11/Oct/18
@Mr Fish: If 5’8 7/8 is a low you may squeak by with 5’9”. You essentially are. 1/8” is at a point where it is not even weak anymore. Anything 3/4” or over really
Bobby said on 11/Oct/18
@Zampo

Agreed, on a day where I've had little hydration and have been doing heavy lifting myself, I can get down to 5'9 5/8" area (176.7cm). Even just a day being on my feet for 7 hours or so, can also do it.
Tunman said on 11/Oct/18
@Andrea
a 172 calling himself 180?I know someone who looks 173-4 who claimed 180 but the thing is that height matters for him more than he wants me to think.I mean I was looking over his eyebrows yet he insists he's taller than myself.Of course he's a nice person but just unable to admit the truth about height.Btw I would say most liars think people don't care which makes it easier to boost oneself (although 8cm is still too much even for a boost).2-3cm lie is harder to guess as you need to have the perect conditions (very close distance,well known shoes height,head in the right position,and preferably a normal or short hairstyle).
On another subject,I was in Rome this summer and although it was for a whole week I was shocked to see there was much more tourists than italians.Of course walking in tourist sites gives all the chances for such thing to occur but I swear that even streets far from the sites still had a large number of foreigners.It was just impossible to have a serious idea about the average young Italians.From those I was 100% sure they were italians the tallest girl was like 185-6 and the tallest man maybe 197,he looked a little less than a head taller like 23cm (for a 25cm head)but had thick boots.
CristopherAlex said on 11/Oct/18
Hi Rob. First of all congrats for creating this page.
Yesterday late night I measured myself after being up 14 hours and a heavy back training workout and I measure 175.7- 175.8 cm
So I guess is an extrem low right? What height you thino is my real one or a good claim in my case?
I think I'm 177.5 after bed or 177.7 not sure
Editor Rob
Say you went to the Doctor's for a physical, it was 11am - you'd get measured closer to 177 than 176...most people would probably just claim the 177.

But if it was a 5pm appointment, you might be 176cm range.

It's really up to you what to claim, personally if I were you I might just go with the 176cm as most people will see you as being very honest about height.
Zampo said on 11/Oct/18
@Andrea: Lol, I'm not going to lie when I read your post, my immediate reaction was.. "this can't be real?"-particularly the 180.89 part, but I've read about the "tape measure" situation severally on celebheights plus I've genuinely read posts where people make comments such as "I measure 180.34 cm". Coincidentally, I recently made a post on the general height's page where I stated that possibly about 50% of comments on celebheights are pure fantasy.

@Canson: Have you been present in such a situation?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/18
@Connor

I believe he's 5'1", because Bobby said that Andrea's 5'1", but Andrea didn't deny it when he responded to Bobby.
MrFish said on 9/Oct/18
Rob, as I'm 5ft 9in at lunchtime and 5ft 8 and 7/8ths in the evening, what would I be listed at on the site, at exactly 0.75 inches taller than you? 8.75 or 9? Assuming you met me and determined that I was, indeed, as tall as I say that I am.
Editor Rob
It would depend on how tall you looked, either in person or with others. I doubt you'd be listed at 8.5 or 9.5 unless your posture was hard to determine.
Canson said on 9/Oct/18
@Bobby: I think he did measure 5’8 7/8 on good sleep so you’re probably right. Maybe he’s lost height since he’s 5’8.75 morning height today. Rob correct me if I’m wrong
Editor Rob
If I get a proper sleep I might hit 8 7/8th, but normally it is closer to 8.75 range.
Canson said on 9/Oct/18
@Zampo: that’s always the case. People always lie about height even when it’s apparent they aren’t as tall. It’s bad enough that some do it blatantly and try to tell others they are taller than they are. I guess they figure they can go all out until a tape measure is mentioned or better yet pulled out and activated! I love when people pull out measuring tape at a party etc or at a house when someone is lying about their height.
Zampo said on 9/Oct/18
@Bobby,

1.8 cm is within the typical range. I think the vast majority will fall in the 1.5-2.5 cm range.

Definitely it can be more though. On a very active day (boxing), I drop about 2 cm or so. I suspect I may drop near an inch doing heavy lifting (if measured immediately).
Sakz said on 9/Oct/18
@Zampo Same here. Whether it's in real life or on Celebheights I don't challenge people's height claims or get into arguments over it. I simply come on to give my input as an observer of height. As long as nobody is telling me what to claim or inflating me, I don't have a problem with what they do.
Andrea said on 9/Oct/18
Zampo, actually, I was just mocking certain kind of posters on here who regularly come out with posts like that. I thought the absurdity of that post (like the fact that a 172 guy claimed to be 180, or that I managed to measure one of my friends as precisely as 180.89 with a simple tape measure I brought from home), combined with populist and rhetorical concepts (and a very "basic" English) was a dead giveaway, but I'm not surprised that many people on here have taken a comment like that very seriously because, as I said, those kind of comments have become a daily occurrence on this site...
Gupreet Singh said on 9/Oct/18
Rob would your height make a difference with daily stretching let's say you have been doing that for 3 years.
Editor Rob
I'm sure it has helped some folk a little if they spent 2-3 years doing a routine. It might be a temporary type of boost that needs 30 minutes a day to maintain.
Bobby (5'10) said on 9/Oct/18
Arthur, and objectivity? It doesn't make work. You goad people into anger, my friend. Perhaps if you ceased making grandiose assumptions regarding one's stature, all would be forgiven.
Connor Simpson said on 9/Oct/18
@Arthur! Lol clearly you haven't because you're still trying to wind Bobby up so quit the bs. You haven't changed at all, not one bit.
Zampo said on 9/Oct/18
@Canson: I generally agree with the range you stated. I think like you mentioned majority of people's height loss over the day lies inbetween 5/8 of an inch to the full inch. However apparently 0.5 inch loss is possibly, it'of course not a everyday thing.

Andrea: So I'm not the only one (along with Sakz)!
I'm actually keen to know, within your group of friends were most genuinely confident they would measure the mark they claimed once the tape measure was brought out?

@Sakz: I just find it a little ridiculous at times the way people get so heated over height claims.
Bobby said on 8/Oct/18
@Zampo, I typically lose 1.8cm on average from morning to evening. Maybe in a 10-hour timeframe, it can be more 2cm though.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 8/Oct/18
Rob, according to Andrea, your foot's about 26cm long. So that means you should be wearing 10-10.5 US shoes, according to the chart Click Here But you wear 9.5 US, why is that?
Editor Rob
The top chart is the female version, bottom chart male.
Connor Simpson said on 8/Oct/18
@Matt99 if I remember correctly I'm sure Andrea said once that he is 6'1, Andrea can correct me if I'm wrong.
Arthur! said on 8/Oct/18
@Editor Rob
I have learned. Thank you for the chance Big Rob. I am just stating my opinion and try to be as objective as you are when it comes to height but get flack for it by insecure people.
Canson said on 8/Oct/18
Well said Andrea.. being taller or shorter isn’t going to change anything. You mentioned your friend that measured 184.1. 186 is believable out of bed for him since it’s within 2cm of a low. I could believe a guy who’s 184 at a low measuring a full 186 out of bed or at least 185.7 or 185.8 and rounding from there. But when someone is claiming 184 at 180.9 that’s definitely a shoe height perhaps early in the day or rounded a bit.
Canson said on 8/Oct/18
@Zampo: he has to lose more than 0.4”. He wakes to minimum 5’8.75 if not 5’8.8 like he mentioned and a best case for him is between 5’8 1/8-1/4”. He did mention once that he used to wake up to 5’8 7/8 peak so 5’8 1/4 or 1/8 is believeable as a low as some may only lose 5/8” vs a full inch or it could be that 5’8 1/8” is his normal low as well. However My guess is that his normal low falls between 5’8 1/8-1/4. Maybe something like 5’8 1/6”
Editor Rob
Physical activity levels determine if I'm more 1/8th or a bit over it.

Well I don't see any chance of him learning Rob, it doesn't seem like he ever will change his ways, I think Arthur has had plenty enough chances already but it's up to you, it's your site of course.
Sakz said on 8/Oct/18
@Zampo I'm with you there. I don't see the point in the end it's their life so it's up to them. People also say it's only height it's not a big thing, well then they shouldn't be bothered what someone else claims.
Littlelee168cm said on 7/Oct/18
You go Bobby show that horrible guy whose boss your definitely above average just ignore him
Bobby said on 7/Oct/18
Speaking of Rob's morning height, I am certain if he had the best sleep of his life, he could manage a flat 5'9 out of bed, or very close to it. We all know he's over 6ft though, he says so in the videos. ;)
Connor Simpson said on 7/Oct/18
@Bobby I would sock him for you, (just kidding) but seriously just ignore him mate don't let him get to you, he's just wanting attention, he's pathetic. Rob should have kept him blocked to be honest, but yeah next time he tries to wind you up just ignore him and keep on ignoring him, that way he will eventually get bored and stop doing it and he will embarrass himself just like he is already doing, he's a loser.
Zampo said on 7/Oct/18

Zampo said on 7/Oct/18
@Canson: People are different, I typically lose 1.6 cm over the course of typical day and I am sure that there are many that lose less than 2 cm. I believe Rob himself has stated he has lost 0.4 inch over the course of the day on occasions. This is why all this talk of what height one wakes up to in the morning is pointless. Rob is more likely to measure slightly over 173 cm than under at a low.
Matt99 said on 7/Oct/18
@Andrea how tall are you?
Connor Simpson said on 7/Oct/18
Why did you even unblock Arthur in the first place Rob? You know he will never change, I see it myself I also know that Arthur is constantly trying to wind him up, you really should have kept him banned, I think you're going soft no offence.
Editor Rob
People get a few chances at times, hopefully they can learn.
Bobby (5'10) said on 6/Oct/18
@Arthur, my feet aren't small, they're average sized. Greg is the same height as you are, and his feet also measure the same length as mine. As I've mentioned, foot size isn't correlative to height until we get massive disparities. Also, below average average height? Seriously? At the very worst, I am solid average. I wouldn't be called tall as often as I do if I were below average. Get your priorities straight. I'm surprised no one has socked you on the face for how annoying you are.
Canson said on 6/Oct/18
@Johnson: I think Rob could measure a bit lower at an extreme low. He’s said that 5’8 1/8 is normal low. Judging by his out of bed height, 5’8 1/8” would appear a normal low (if not a hair less) for a person measuring 5’8.75-.8 out of bed. I’m not sure if 5’8 7/8 wasn’t his peak out of bed height or if that were just his best day on extended sleep. That would make more sense if he measures 5’8 1/8 at a low. The norm for most people here on Celebheights is 3/4” to 2cm height loss. But I have to take his word for it if he has claimed for over 14 years that 5’8 1/8 is his normal low. I don’t think he’s making that up
Connor Simpson said on 6/Oct/18
Actually Arthur as Canson said Bobby is above average height, not under, maybe it is you who is actually below average height seeing as you get a kick out of constantly winding him up all the time, it wouldn't surprise me.

I'd love to see you do a height measurement video but of course you won't because you'll only just chicken out, but just give Bobby a break man, leave him alone.
Gupreet Singh said on 6/Oct/18
Rob can being shredded or ripped make you taller.
Editor Rob
It might help a bit.
Andrea said on 5/Oct/18
tonight's the night. i was at a pub with some friends of mine and we were talking about height. one said to be 180 and everybody called him out because he clearly looks nowhere near that, so i took out the tape measure (cuz i obviously never go out without it), we measured him and turned out he was 172, lol. another one said to be 184, and although the majority seemed to believe him, i didn't of course, because he looked much nearer 180 than 184 to me. guess what? he was just under 181, about 180.89. he swore he got measured 184 once... in shoes. i told him that shoes aren't part of your body and he just ended the conversation by saying 'whatever', lol. another friend said 186 and basically nobody raised an eyebrow, apart from me :D xD measured him and he was exactly 184.1. he said he knows he 'isn't' 186, but he claims that because he (or at least he says so) measure that out of bed. last guy claimed 190, again measured him and he was 187.5. the funny thing is that not only he always insists he is that tall, but he also inflates me and every other mate in the group (although they're probably flattered by that to make it more believable. hell, i hate those kind of people!1!1! pfff. anyway, even today i called out and exposed height liars, so i can go sleep tight now :D
p.s. this is a message for everyone. height is just a number, a physical trait which isn't going to make you better or worse depending on you are taller or shorter. unfortunately, you can't control it, so there's no achievement in being taller or short. my advice is always be honest about your height and be proud of it, no matter what height is. your height won't make you a better or worse person, but your honesty will. :)
Matt99 said on 5/Oct/18
Rob Arthur is taking this a little too far with Bobby, it’s quite irritating to read because I know it’ll push Bobbys buttons and this whole cycle will start again.
Editor Rob
I think Arthur! should respect Bobby's right to claim whatever height he wants.
Canson said on 5/Oct/18
@Arthur: Bobby is above average height
Andrea said on 5/Oct/18
I didn't know that, Arthur, though that formula I was talking about relates height to feet length, so, according to that, the average feet length for someone who is about 5'10 (let's say 178 cms) should be 178/6.6, so pretty much 27 cms. If I'm not mistaken, Rob said that his feet are somewhere in 26 cms range, which are quite average for someone of his height, according to that same formula...
Andrea said on 5/Oct/18
LOL, whatever, Bobby.
Canson said on 4/Oct/18
@Christian: there have been a couple instances with my 6’6 friend where he wasn’t standing straight (he’s 40 in a few months) and I am close to him although he does wear flat shoes sometimes. I’ve had a couple times when he and I are almost neck and neck when I have a good advantage and he isn’t standing at his tallest. Once he does tho, it’s clear who’s taller
Canson said on 4/Oct/18
@Christian: he is probably early 30s. Maybe at most he’s a couple years younger than me and I’m 36. He was very thin too. I thought he was 6’3”-6’4 but then stood straight and 6’5 and change
Edimar184 said on 4/Oct/18
Rob sorry for ask again... But, I am measured at 186cm out of bed, but that decreases to about 183.8 before going to bed.
I always say my height in meters, something like 1.84m, but what if I could say 6ft1 without it being very evident that I am a liar? hahah
Editor Rob
You probably wouldn't be challenged by many, since at worst you are basically half inch under 6ft 1.

Unless you are walking about in thin sneakers, you could claim about 6ft 1. Personally I think 'almost 6ft 1' kind of covers you.
Edimar184 said on 4/Oct/18
@Editor Rob

If you are a hollywood celebrity, I'm sure you would claim 5f9, right, Rob? hahaha.
Editor Rob
I'm not so sure I'd inflate height, though that's not to say an agent might do it.

I'm sure many agents over the years suggested to actors it's better adding 1-2 inches because it might mean you aren't rejected 'on the desk' compared to giving an honest barefoot height.
Gylfi said on 4/Oct/18
@Glitch I was 183cm in the morning and 181cm at night on my 18th Birthday, i've grown a 1cm since and i'm currently 18 and a half.
Arthur! said on 4/Oct/18
By the way Bobby, an 11 US shoe size for you would be massive. Your shoe size should actually be a 9 or 9.5, maybe 10 at the very most, based on the fact you said your foot measures 25.4 cm.
Arthur! said on 4/Oct/18
@Andrea
You got something wrong. Having 10 inches long feet doesn't mean you should wear a size 8 US shoe. The CM metric system in shoes measures the length of the shoe, not the actual foot, it's the Japan shoe size system. The length of the shoes you want to buy should always be 1 cm or so bigger than your actual foot measurement. For example, I have measured my feet at about 25.8 cm , so just over 10 inches and I wear a size 9.5 US shoe mainly. I do believe my feet are just under average for my height, but for like quarter of an inch or so. Bobby's just under average feet measurement actually ties good with his just under average height measurement :-)
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Oct/18
@Canson

He must've had terrible posture if he looked shorter than 6'4" one minute, and looked over 6'5" when he stood straight. I know a few people who look an inch shorter when hunched over vs when standing straight, but not that extreme like that guy you mentioned. Maybe he had bad posture because he was old? How old was he? (or at least how old he looked if you haven't asked his age)
Bobby said on 3/Oct/18
@Matt9

My shoe size in the US is 10/11, I can fit into either 10 or 11 shoes. 7.5/8 U.K sounds on the small side for me. My feet aren't that small, they look fairly average sized. Greg is half an inch taller than I am, and he has the same size feet, so height isn't really correlative or indicative of larger feet or larger heads until it gets to half a foot or greater.
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Oct/18
@ Ben - Talking of hat sizes, I can only assume mine to be rather on the small side!

For a couple of years, I had my black velvet hats admired by many women, who all wanted to get duplicate hats for themselves, but claimed they couldn't find them anywhere. I didn't have the balls to admit that they came from 'Mothercare' so can't have been more than age 10, and highly affordable into the bargain! I wore out loads! 😄👍
Johnson said on 3/Oct/18
If absolute low working as Rob proved the other day is 5'8 1/8. He should class himself 5'8.25. He is listing 173.0 minimum exhausted
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
@Christian: the other day there was a guy claimed 6’5 1/2 (first 6’6). He said he doesn’t stand straight. I stood next to him and was sure I was taller. Low and behold he stood straight and had me by a good inch. Maybe he’s more 6’5.25 but could’ve easily been 6’5.5 as well. He looked the same next to me (at least) as my buddy who is about your height. He measures 196.2 at night and surprisingly only measures 197.8 (according to him) out of bed not a full 6’6. I’m shorter and lose about 2cm
Bobby (5'10) said on 2/Oct/18
Well, as I've explained. I really don't think feet size are correlative with stature unless the difference is half a foot or greater. Having 10 inch feet aren't what I would call small for my height given that I wear size 11 shoes.

@Bobby you’d be 7.5/8 UK which is on the smaller side for a guy. Average is 9-10 UK or 10/11 US I believe, 7.5/8 UK is pretty small for 6’0 guy.
Andrea said on 2/Oct/18
As I said, Bobby, 10 inches feet are smaller than average for someone of your height, like a good half an inch less, going by that formula. The average size for someone in 6' range is nearer 11 inches, so about 11 US size...
Bobby (5'10) said on 1/Oct/18
@Andrea, my feet are 10 inches long, which is average foot size for a guy of my height. You know what's funny though?

I was watching an episode of Elementary, the reimagining of Sherlock Holmes in modern day New York City, and he examines one guy's foot print to be 10 inches, and basicallly concludes this guy was 6ft tall.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Oct/18
@Bobby

It's rare, but sometimes two people can be about a foot difference in height but share the same shoe size. I know a guy that's 5'5" and another that's 6'4" but both wear 11.5. Or less rare, half a foot difference. My 5'11.5" friend is half a foot shorter than me, but we both wear 14. So the correlation isn't that strong.
Andrea said on 1/Oct/18
Bobby, actually, 10 inches feet correspond to 8-8.5 US size, according to this site (which seems quite reliable): Click Here If you wear 11 (US, I guess) size, your feet should closer to 11 inches long...
And although it is true that height and feet lenght aren't always correlated, there's a general correlation between them, which I've read is 6.6:1 for men and near 6.9:1 for women. This means that if your feet really are 10 inches long, they're certainly smaller than average for someone of your height, considering that, going by that formula, that's the size you'd expect from someone who is near 5'6, which is far off from your imposing 177 stature... 😊

What is the best equipment to measure accurate height
Editor Rob
Most people should be able to get a good measurement with a simple retractable tape measure, pencil and 8-10 inch long object (aerosol can for instance).
Ben said on 30/Sep/18
Speaking of head sizes Sandy and Rob. I have a bigger head than my 6'2" friend, he had size 58 (for hats) while my head was measured at 58.5. My other friend who's also around 6'2" had size 61 or 64. My 6'4.75" friend had the same size as me. So yeah, I now know I have a pretty big head!

That seems a fair mark to give yourself.

@ Christian 6ft5 and 3/8ths:

@Christian 6'5 3/8"

Well, some days, you'll see really tall people and other days you won't. I commute 5 days a week and I never see anyone that's strikingly tall. On the odd occasion that you do, they're really tall, well above 6'6.

When I was 16, I had a chance encounter with an African Canadian who had to have been well over 7ft tall. He must have been 8ft tall. Maybe I just exaggerate it but my head came up to his torso/belly button area. He probably wasn't 8ft but definitely around 7ft tall.
Csimpson6ft said on 29/Sep/18
@Bobby there was a guy who used to work in my school gym who looked really tall, im not sure if he still works there but he was the tallest guy ive ever stood next to he looked maybe 6'6, the second tallest is one of my cousins who is bang on 6'5 and the third being my stepdad who is now probably 6'4.5, he might have been 6'4.75 or even a full 6'5 at his peak (he's in his 50's now), but wow yeah a 6'7+ guy is definitely extremely tall for sure!

@Arch Stanton,

Are you posting from different web browsers or devices? That may be why you keep having to redo your username and email. I had to tweak my username and email settings for the iPad which is why my name appears as "Bobby 5'10" occasionally. Since I am posting on the tablet device that day. Ever since I made those changes, I haven't been bothered about it since.
Bobby said on 29/Sep/18
@Heyrob,

Unusual username, but I won't judge.

I'm a 177-178cm guy, and I have 10 inch feet but wear size 11 shoes. I think your feet are on the smallish side for your height, I would expect your feet to be 10 inches at most.

Still, there's not a lot of correlation between height and foot size. A 6ft guy isn't any more likely to have bigger feet than a 5'10 guy. Now, let's suppose you compare a 6ft guy to a 7ft guy, well, the 7footer will have the bigger feet. It's only when the size difference becomes half a foot or greater, that foot size correlates to shoe size but a couple of inches? Nah.
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Sep/18

That's surprising to hear, especially given that you live in a huge city like Toronto. Other than that one time in an airport, the tallest l've ever saw was maybe a 6'11"-7'0" guy.
Tomwash3r3 said on 29/Sep/18
Hey Rob, do you think that leaning forward while being on your phone a lot during the day can make you shrink down to your lowest height quicker? And is it me or is a person already a little closer to their lowest height than to their max morning height within only about the first hour after waking up, assuming, they did some walking and standing?
Editor Rob
After being up and on feet 2 hours you will be closer to evening than morning (in most cases).

Bending forward might place a bit more strain on back, but I couldn't say if it really has a noticeable effect in getting to our low quicker.

Some tasks that involve rotation I have found got me to my low quicker, and driving I found did that more than sitting in a computer chair.

Height and shoe size

Rob, I'm a 175 cm guy with a size 8 shoe. Can possibly fit into a 7 as well if I let it stretch out a bit. But do you think that's weird? I'm a little self conscious about it as all of my friends wear a 9 or 11. I feel like a freak.. :/
Bobby (5'10) said on 28/Sep/18

The tallest guy I've seen in person was well over 6'7, and likely close to 6'8. I fel the difference was nearly a foot. At least 10 inches.

Thanks for your interesting reply!

When you see a person, male or female, can you automatically suss whether he or she has a longer than average head? Is it part of how you work out how tall someone is? Thanks! 😀👍

You can get a good sense if you know what 8, 9 and 10 inches looks like.

Thanks for answering my question. I've always been curious about this.
Balli said on 27/Sep/18
Hi Rob,
Hope you are doing well.
I saw one of your Youtube videos(height throughout the day) and you stood 173.7 cm more most part of the day. Isn't that almost 5ft8.5? Have you grown a little taller over the years? Is the stadiometer accurate? If not, is your exact height 173.4 cm during lunchtime and 173.1 cm during the rest of the day (also in the pics with celebs)?
Editor Rob
Any measurement on the blue stadiometer was always 1/8th higher than the 'true measurement' because of a tiny error in the manufacture of them.
I still class myself as more 173-173.2 range with actors.
Littlelee168cm said on 27/Sep/18
No you weren't far off Bobby and you'd feel tall next to little me feel good about that see I can comfortably make fun of my height
MD said on 27/Sep/18
Rob,

I was kind of curious about nationality in the UK after seeing some descriptions of some actors on these pages. I'm curious if you have a standard/default for how you list the nationality of folks from the UK? For instance, I notice that you list Richard Madden as "British" when he's Scottish, and I wonder if you defer to the invidiual in cases where they've claimed a nationality, or if you have your own standard? I've always been kind of interested in the politics of this. Despite being specifically picked to be a catch-all term for anyone from the UK these days, it's my personal experience that it's usually English people who claim the "British" moniker.
Editor Rob
There are still some leftover descriptions with 'British', but slowly over time I've been changing them to English/Scottish/Welsh/Northern Irish.

On passports we are listed under nationality as "British citizens".
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Sep/18
@ Rob - Is a head of 8.1 inches slightly below average for a woman? I'm sure you mentioned that the average male head measures in at 9 inches in one of your videos. Being as women are generally smaller anyway, would the average female head be shorter than male? I know that male heads and faces are larger generally; that even applies in the animal world!
Editor Rob
On average 8.5-8.6 is a more typical average range.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Sep/18

Who's the tallest guy you've ever seen in person then? Mine was a 7'1"-7'2" guy walking in an airport.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Sep/18
@Canson

"Rare" depends from person to person. It can also depend on where you live. One will encounter a lot of people if they live in a big city, so 6'4" might not seem that rare to them. I do agree with you that 6'4" is a rare height though, and this is coming from someone who lives in LA.
Bobby said on 26/Sep/18
@Canson

Well, I don't work in the construction industry. So I don't need to be wearing shoes like that.
Bobby (5'10) said on 26/Sep/18
@Littlelee168cm

That's what I've persisted with for a good long while ever since I measured myself at 5'10 using the aerosol can method, and was actually expecting to get 5'11 as I had this subconscious inkling that I would be 5'11 at the shortest. I guess I wasn't that off.
Bobby (5'10) said on 26/Sep/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8"

Ah no, it was just running shoes. Such as Air Maxes from Nike, and right now, I am wearing New Balance which give something around 1 1/8th - 1.25 inches. So, I reckon something around 1.2 inches is a good estimate, as it's very close.
Canson said on 26/Sep/18
@Bobby: there are plenty of shoes thicker than that. Steel toed etc

@CMillz: was this guy a legit 6’5” guy at a low or did he claim to be 6’5”? 6’5” is rare. It’s not common and this coming from someone who is a strong 6’4” (193.5-194 at a low) and my height is rare honestly. I usually don’t see much difference with myself and someone who hits 195-196 at a low. I only ask because I have met 6’3” guys who claim 6’5” and then try to get others to go along with the lie. I never oblige and have been told I’m 6’6” before until I say well let me grab a tape measure or if I have someone else around me that is honest as well

That's cool Bobby I would certainly call you a five foot ten guy just ignore people like Arthur I'd guess he was actually five nine and a half himself but calls himself a strong five ten a weak five ten is still five ten range so just go with that bobby
cmillzz said on 25/Sep/18
There were also a few women there who weren’t too far off the 6’0 mark, strangely enough. And the restaurant wasn’t even that crowded.
cmillzz said on 25/Sep/18
I was having dinner with a 6’5 guy the other day and he wasn’t even the tallest at the restaurant. There was this waiter that had to be easily 6’6, possibly 6’7. And there were numerous other guys that were comfortably over 6’0. Again, it’s why I think I live in one of the tallest areas in the USA. It just seems strange for me to be seeing so many very tall people very frequently.

AndoSenn99 that’s a shorter eyelevel than normal for your height, mine is 164cm at 175cm which is pretty much the average eyelevel. You must have a bigger head than average.
Lapinux said on 24/Sep/18
@cmillzz

I agree. Just like a 5'11" guy might feel tall around a group of 5'8" guys. No uncommon height by any means.
Bobby (5'10) said on 24/Sep/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8",

I also think it's because 5'10 and especially 5'11 is quite close to 6'0, and so you'll have mainly 5'11 guys claiming to be 6'0, though I could understand a 5'11.5 guy claiming to be 6'0, I would too if I were that tall.
Animus said on 24/Sep/18
Rob, is a ½in height difference perceptible when talking in close proximity with another man and both have good posture and similar footwear?

I am asking because I am trying to decide whether a friend of mine is 1-2cm taller than me. When he wears ½in shoes and I wear normal sneakers, we seem to be the exact same height, but it's hard to tell if there still is a fractional difference. Yesterday he wore dress shoes and I wore sneakers and he edged me out, but I am not sure by how much.

I'd appreciate your cogent opinion on the matter.
Editor Rob
An inch is easier to notice than half an inch. At that range, I think many people would probably class the other person as very similar, though if they paid attention they might be able to tell the other person as being taller.

@Littlelee168cm, CD is around your height, more of a weak 5'6 guy though, but he's really cool. A lot of guys of your height range are great people. The thickest footwear I've ever worn has been something like 1.2 inches. So even at my low of 5'9.75, I still look a 5'10 guy to others.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Sep/18
@cmillzz

It's that kind of mindset that drives a lot of 5'10" or 5'11" guys to claim 6'0". Being below the 6ft mark is inadequate in their minds.
AndoSenn99 said on 23/Sep/18
Rob, at night I measure at roughly 5'8 3/4 (174.6 cm I think? bit below 175 regardless) and my eye seems to be on 162 cm. I've seen some comments that eye level is meant to be 4.5-4.75 inches from your height, but also read 5 inches is normal, so I'm a bit confused is my eye level normal for my height?

Hey Rob, hope you and Jenny are well and having success with the stall at local conventions :) We're still getting over the post-con blues but not too long until Destination Star Trek thankfully. I see they're adding a second London convention next year so that will be interesting to see the guests they get for a smaller con, not sure we'll go unless the guests are good enough. I'd like to add better quality photos as well, especially my recent pics but the scanner/printer got abused by the cats :D
Editor Rob
I'm still slowly rescanning my collection, I'm just using an HP photosmart printer/scanner for it but remembering to keep the glass and photos as dust free as possible!

Unfortunately I noticed the prints at times have ranged in quality from great to rather poor. The camera-copy itself already has the problems, overexposure to blurriness.

In fact speaking of conventions, that weekend you are going to Destination, we had an event planned, but after seeing the organiser cancel half his main guests and now cancel half his guests for another event he's running, I decided not to waste my time going.
Sometimes you have to cut your losses. In the future, I will stick to showmaster/mcm to be dealers at bigger events :)

I can see why a 5’11 guy might feel short in some situations though, like if you’re around a bunch of 6’2+ guys, or even just standing next to a girl of the same height. And yes, 6’2 is quite tall, but it isn’t a rare height. There are plenty of American men that are 6’2 range.

@ Littlelee168cm - I think you may even be a little bit closer to average still, for me 5'9" is possibly a slightly rounded up estimate for the UK average! Don't believe those other sites, it's around 5'9" flat - like Rob says!

Rob,did it happen that you overestimated somebody's height by a large amount (like 2"or more)simply because you were tired?I know it could seem a lot but is there a way that some persons with normal footwear have such variations in the height they look?if we spoke about teenagers we could cast some doubt on a previous estimate because some might still gain height but I'm speaking of people all 20 years old or more and up to 40-50.I'm asking because i'm extremely active(and quite tired) these days in my shop and surprisingly many (adult) persons seem taller than usual.
Editor Rob

Anybody could over-under estimate significantly if they don't have knowledge or much interest. It will vary greatly amongst the population ability to guess height.

I probably did think of some people as shorter/taller by 1-2 inches before this site, but I didn't give height that much thought.

Running the site and looking at height over the years helps get a better understanding of differences and how all the factors can effect how tall somebody looks.

Guys, this argument could runaway and just result in insults. I don't want that.
Sakz said on 18/Sep/18
@Littlelee168cm That's understandable. 6 inches is a fair bit in terms of height but you wouldn't 'dwarf' someone and some may not even feel that small next to the taller person. I'm about 6'1 and my brother a strong 5'6 and the difference isn't enough to say I dwarf him or make him look tiny.
Bobby (5'10) said on 18/Sep/18
@Littlelee168cm
That's interesting, I know when standing next to strong 6fters and guys in the 6'2 range I don't feel that much shorter but once they get to 6'4 range and above, I start to feel diminutive. Do you ever wear shoes to boost your height, like cowboy boots or hiking boots?
Sakz said on 18/Sep/18
@AndrewV Statistically you can argue it is and society views it as short but I mean for me personally it's more shortish esepcially based on where I live. I mean even 5'8 and 5'9 are viewed as short by society when they're average. However, I understand why people view it as short aswell.
Littlelee168cm said on 18/Sep/18
But if your right and 5ft 9 is average for a man in the UK then means I'm a little big closer to average than I thought and I can't complain about that
Littlelee168cm said on 18/Sep/18
Christian I'm going by what it says on Wikipedia male average heights by country list and it says both 5ft 9.5 and 5ft 10 and a lot of other sites do say 5ft 10 for UK average and 5ft 9 in USA 5ft 10 in Australia and New Zealand too
Cameron M said on 17/Sep/18
Rob do you know if the taller or heavier the person the more height they lose throughout the day?

I think maybe with significantly overweight people, it might cause their back problems and they may well reach lowest height quicker or drop slightly more, but it's something I haven't seen any medical study on or research.

Rob, did you ever used to lie about your height before you came to accept your height? Like did you used to claim to be 5'9 or 5'10?

I always claimed the height I measured, not including shoes of course, so have stuck with 5ft 8 for 25 years.

Rob isnt this abit odd I knew a guy in my school who was 4 foot 9 at 11 and then shot up to 6 foot 2 at 20 then grew an inch at 21 now is 6 foot 3 is that an indicator that he was a late bloomer.
Editor Rob
Seems like he exceeded what others might have thought he would end up.
Canson said on 16/Sep/18
@Rob: I’m sure that if you were at a normal low of 5’8 1/8 around maybe 6 pm and then were on your feet all night at a bar or club (until say 2 or 3 am) that you may dip below that mark. I’ve done it myself where I’ve gone about a 1/4” to cm less (like you mentioned). I’ve been around 193.8-.9 then got down to 193.1 at an extreme low before or 193.7 to 193.1 like I did last night as We went out last night and got home around 3 am
Littlelee168cm said on 16/Sep/18
No Bobby not really. Stood next to mark labbett and certainly felt tiny but no not next to a 6 footer and I know plenty were I work I think from when I come up to their chin I start to feel small next to them so like 6ft 2 upwards but I don't feel insecure about it or hate that I'm 3 to 4 inches below average

I find the subject surrounding "feeling short" far too subjective. All I know is when a person is below the eye-level of another they visually from a 3rd person perspective look short. A 5'10 person will look short next to a 6'3 person in my opinion. I would however expect at about 8-9 cm differential for the shorter person to start to "feel smallish" (basically when your eye-level is looking below one's mouth).

@Gylfi If you are measuring every year then how tall you were at 18th Birthday?
Nik said on 15/Sep/18
@ Sakz - Too true!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Sep/18
Rob could be 173.2cm at his normal low in 2018, and probably 172.9cm at his most extreme low.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Sep/18
@Littlelee

No way the UK average is an inch taller than the US. There are stats that say the average British man is 5'9". Click Here But this is for all age groups for all races. Maybe young/middle aged white British guys are about 5'10" or a bit under it.
Nik said on 15/Sep/18
@ Littlelee168cm - Thanks for that!
MrFish said on 15/Sep/18
Rob, is it possible for a man to reach age 70 with only half an inch lost? At about 175 cm at 21 years old, I'd be thrilled to reach 70 and still be over 173.
Editor Rob
I think a proportion will manage with 1/4 to 1/2 inch lost, but they are in the minority.
AndrewV said on 14/Sep/18
@Sakz I disagree, 5'7" is within average range but 5'6" is one standard deviation below average height (atleast in the West) and 5'6" guys like Lionel Messi and Dries Mertens are regularly described as short. 5'6" is like the equivalent of 6'0", so it's the start of the short range.
cmillzz said on 14/Sep/18
Rob, do kidney problems as a child result in stunted growth? That’s what I’ve heard before.

I had some mild kidney issues as a kid, but I still grew taller than my father, so maybe it didn’t affect my growth.
Editor Rob
It definitely raises the risk, some actors have had kidney problems as kids and it stunted their growth.

There was one actor I met Aron Eiseinberg who had 1 kidney but that gave him problems and he was on dialysis as a teenager.
cmillzz said on 14/Sep/18
Most guys definitely stop growing by 18. I know tons of guys that stopped growing by 16 or younger. I think what’s most striking about the younger generation is that they seem to be hitting developing earlier than usual. Maybe this is why people think kids and teens are soooo tall these days, because many of them (especially the girls) reach their full adult height by age 14.

I know a guy who was 6’2 by the end of 8th grade. He is still 6’2 to this day I believe. Was funny standing next to him in 8th grade graduation as I was only 5’0 at the time.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Sep/18
@Lapinux

Spot on. I agree with that 100%.
Bobby (5'10) said on 14/Sep/18
@LittleLee168cm, you don't feel short next to someone who is half a foot taller than you? That's interesting. I don't start to feel until the difference is 5 inches at least.
Sakz said on 13/Sep/18
@Nik Exactly that's why I don't consider heights like 5'7 or 5'6 'short'. 'Under average' or 'shortish' you can argue with a height like 5'6.
cmillzz said on 13/Sep/18
I always had a feeling that Rob would never dip under 173 cm in any situation. So yes, 5’8 1/8 really is an extreme low for him. The fact that his extreme low after a day of strenuous work is the same as his normal daily low is a bit surprising to me, which again is why I think that 5’8 1/4 could actually be just a normal daily low for him.
cmillzz said on 13/Sep/18
@littlelee LMAO, you are so insecure little guy. Don’t take your anger out on me just because you’re unhappy about your height. Clearly it seems as if the moron here would be you, since absolutely nobody is in agreement with you. Not one person has taken your side thus far because they know you’re wrong, and I’m sure deep down inside you know it too. You’re just in denial, but keep on living in your own fantasy world buddy.

5’8 and 5’6 is a striking difference for sure, sorry if that hurts your feelings so much sweetie.
Glitch said on 13/Sep/18
@Gylfi I think you will reach 184cm at 21 . I’m 17 and 177cm maybe
Yee said on 13/Sep/18
Hey Rob. 5’8 and 1/8 seems extremely low for you. I would list you between 5’8 and a third and 5’8 and a half... do you list all celebrities as low as you list yourself. For example... is Justin Bieber as 5’7.5 as you are 5’8 and 1/8? Or do you go higher for others and just very low for yourself. I would expect height listing to be mid day height
Editor Rob
Well I'm not listing them as their morning height, but think of afternoon.
Nik said on 13/Sep/18
@ cmillzz - Maybe it is actually 5'7"!
Nik said on 13/Sep/18
@ Andrea - What you said is fair but I would substitute 5'11" for 5'10" and also 6'0" for 5'11"! That is just my experience though and I am aware that the average height of people in different places is not always the same!
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Sep/18
@ cmillzz - If staying well-hydrated is the secret of maintaining one's optimum height, why didn't I grow to nearly 6ft?
The quantities of tea I drink is ridiculous and if I don't fancy it in the boiling hot weather, I can get through a whole bottle of diluted squash in a day and sometimes more!

I've been like this for years!

Today it's voting time again. Rob can have three eighths over five eight.
Zampo said on 13/Sep/18
@cmillzz, if Rob had never listed his height, and the only tool to estimate was by comparing him with photos of height listed celebs. I would have put him at a comfortable 5'8.25.
Andrea said on 13/Sep/18
That's interesting, Rob. As I said, I'm sure you have measured yourself many times, under many different circumstances, and you've NEVER measured below 173, so 173 is really an absolute low for you. Saying that you could measure below that under extreme conditions (even more extreme than yesterday), although still not impossible, is pure speculation because that could be said for anyone...
Editor Rob
I don't think my absolute is much different than usual low, but for some people they might get a surprise and shrink nearly 1cm lower on a physically demanding day.
Nik said on 13/Sep/18
@ Cmillzz - Yes, for me 5'8" is as neutral as 5'10"! Also 5'7" is similar to 5'10" in terms of how neutral it is however generally 5'10" is slightly more average than 5'7"! I do think that 5'8" is generally more average than 5'11" but in a minority of areas this may not quite be the case!

I see countless guys under 5'7" where I live in England, I do think that 5'7" is one of the more common heights!
Littlelee168cm said on 13/Sep/18
It definitely is Christian. Look it up. 5ft 10 for UK 5ft 9 for US
Gylfi said on 12/Sep/18
@Glitch I was 179cm at 17. I know this because we got measured every year at the football club I play for. I’m now 18 and half and I’ve grown roughly 3-4cm since. Not sure how much I’ll grow now.
Littlelee168cm said on 12/Sep/18
Cmillzz you sound like a moron to me in no way would 5ft 8 be a lot taller than me id say 6 foot certainly is but not under that never felt like a "midget" next to even a six footer obviously have a chip on your shoulder about something yourself now move on and don't talk to me again
Zampo said on 12/Sep/18
@Andrea and Canson. Agreed.

@cmillz, Rob we believe hasn't had the opportunity to hit and extreme low, it's all speculation but if he did it would most likely be what Canson stated. As Andrea and I were discussing, the confusion stems from what it takes (level of physical activity) for Rob to hit a 173 cm measurement at a comic con which is what a good proportion of people call their "extreme low" on this site.
Lapinux said on 12/Sep/18
I'd say 172 cm to 179 cm is the average range overall for UK/US, with 175-176 being right on average. Short and tall would begin at 5'6" and 6 foot
Nik said on 12/Sep/18
@ Canson - That is true but 5'7" is still one of the most common heights for men even though it is under average! The most neutral heights for men are probably 5'8" and 5'9"!
cmillzz said on 12/Sep/18
The average height for a male in Indonesia is 5’2 lol
cmillzz said on 12/Sep/18
I doubt the world average is even 5’8 for males if we include ALL countries.
Gupreet Singh said on 11/Sep/18
Hey Rob would you call 187.5 cm a decent height for a 20 year old man and how would this individual feel around Scotland.
Editor Rob

It is a height in which a person in Scotland would feel comfortably tall but not tall enough that it would cause much issues.

I would say it is a desirable height range, and many men would probably pick (if they could) a height near that mark.
Andrea said on 11/Sep/18
To be fair to Littlelee168cm, cmillzz, it's not that unreasonable to say that there's not much difference between 5'6 and 5'8 if you compare them to each other because although 2 inches is still a "noticeable" difference, it is certainly not a big difference. But I agree that when you compare them to the average, so statistically speaking, the difference kinda looks bigger than what those 2 inches suggest because while 5'8 is only a bit below average, 5'6 is comfortably in the short zone (being it 3 inches or so under average).
cmillzz said on 11/Sep/18
but I know Rob isn’t as tall as legit 5’9 guys, but I think he’d edge out a good chunk of the 5’8 listed guys on this site. And not only edge out, but be noticeably taller than some of them.
cmillzz said on 11/Sep/18
Rob at some points in the day measures closer to 5’9 than 5’8 actually.
cmillzz said on 11/Sep/18
5’8 is slightly more common than 5’11 in most states in the US (outside of the places full of Germanic giants in some Midwestern areas).

btw Nik, I agree that 5’7 is very ordinary. My dad is 5’7 and he doesn’t give off a short impression at all. He has good proportions that make him look taller though. I see tons of guys that are shorter than him, of all ages, even where I live.
cmillzz said on 11/Sep/18
Rob, do you think staying well hydrated is the best thing you can do to avoid hitting your lowest height?
Editor Rob
It will play a role in maintaining and ensuring that your body doesn't start to use up water content from around spinal discs...

Actually I finally had a chance to test out my own absolute low again yesterday. I was doing a job reroofing a big garden hut. Click Here, Click Here.

I was up 6am that day and firstly doing daily shop with jenny from 8-9am, then getting supplies from 9-10am and starting the job 10.30 till about 6pm. During that 10.30-6 I didn't take a drink and barely had any breaks.

On checking height after 6pm at home I got just about 173cm on the nose.

I would class my absolute low as still a couple of mm over 5ft 8 and doubt I'd drop any lower (unless suffering from extreme dehydration) because the amount of effort that job yesterday entailed was the most effort I have put my back through in many years.

Other people may not be so lucky and might find their absolute lows are 1/3rd inch under normal lows.

Also, some days I am not working on CelebHeights because I have do other work now and again :)
abachos said on 11/Sep/18
Hey rob ,
I measure 178.8 cms in the morning, at night time I measure 177.3. Am I 5’10 or 5’9 and 3/4
Editor Rob
If you want to go with low claim 5ft 9.75 or almost 5ft 10.

Generally I think most people would view you as about 5ft 10 though, taller than 5ft 9 people comfortably.
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Nik: if we account for both genders it may be but for a male 5’9” is the most neutral
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Cmillz: yep but the stadiometer has deviation as Rob mentioned. He wasn’t quite 5’9 even there. He mentioned his peak morning height was only 5’8 7/8 and today he measures 5’8.75-.8. The measurement you saw was with 1/8” deviation like Rob mentioned
Canson said on 10/Sep/18
@Zampo: I think 5’8 1/8 May be normal for Rob. It wouldn’t surprise me like Andrea said if he dips to 5’8” or 5’7 7/8 at an extreme low
cmillzz said on 10/Sep/18
Funny, I always thought Rob was 5’8 1/4 at a normal low and 5’8 1/8 at an extreme low.
cmillzz said on 10/Sep/18
@Ben, you really think as low as 5’8 could be considered average for men in Scandinavia?
Sakz said on 10/Sep/18
@Ben I agree with that. I don't think 5'6 is an outright short height as I said on the general heights page. It's below average and 'shortish' I would say, although most would just consider it short.
Bobby said on 10/Sep/18
@Canson, my normal low is indeed 5'9.75, and extreme low more 5'9.5. I can lose a full inch under extreme or severe circumstances. I generally only lose 3/4s of an inch, but sometimes a fraction less.
Andrea said on 10/Sep/18
I consider 5'8 kinda the equivalent of 5'11, meaning that 5'8 is the lower end of average the same way 5'11 is the upper end of average, so not enough to be considered short/tall, but some sort of cut-off points between the average zone and the short/tall zone, or more specifically the cut-off points between the average zone and the shortish/tallish zone, which is how I consider 5'7-5'8 and 5'11-6' respectively. Once you are under 5'7 or over 6', that's when short/tall starts, IMO.
Andrea said on 10/Sep/18
That's exactly my point, Zampo. What many people call "extreme low" on here, referring to the lowest they've ever measured, isn't really an extreme low, but what they regularly would measure after a long day. On the other hand, an extreme low is what you may measure after a very strenuous activity, which can be, as I said, a long football match or a heavy gym session, or like in Challenger #8's case (who came in at a hair under 6'1.5 under the stadio, even if he generally looks much nearer 6'2, according to Rob) a very hard "plumbing day".

Rob, are you happy with a height of 5’8? Or did you wish you were a bit taller? Like 5’10 for example?

I don't think about height like that, though I've always said that for taking photos with actors, 6ft would be the ideal mark.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Sep/18
@Littlelee

But England's average isn't 5'10" though.
Nik said on 9/Sep/18
I do think that 5'7" is downright ordinary in the UK!
Editor Rob
It's a common height to see on a daily basis.
cmillzz said on 9/Sep/18
Look at Adam DeVine and Zac Efron. It’s clear as day that Efron has strikingly taller proportions and build. And Devine is probably a bit taller than just 5’6 flat, so you can imagine that the difference would be even more striking if he was only 5’6 flat.

Keep trying to make yourself feel better by insinuating Rob is short though, little guy.
cmillzz said on 9/Sep/18
There’s a huge difference between 10-15th percentile and 35th percentile. Do you have trouble comprehending that?
cmillzz said on 9/Sep/18
LOL, Rob is strikingly taller than you littlelee. There’s a BIG difference between 5’6 and 5’8 just by looking at the stats. It is a bigger jump than say 5’8 to 5’10 or 5’10 to 6’0. 5’6 proportions are just different from 5’8 proportions. Don’t kid yourself. 5’6 is the start of downright short for a man because it’s not even within a standard deviation of average in the USA... at least 5’7 is.

Just accept that you’re short and move on with your life. You seem to have some kind of napoleon complex.
Canson said on 9/Sep/18
@Arthur: the one thing with Rob is that he’s transparent. He’s said 5’8 1/8-1/4 is his normal low. He likely is right in between. I agree with what Andrea said below in regards to his low. He likely measures 5’8 1/8 the same way I would 6’4 1/4. 6’4 1/4” is low on a normal day. Other days I’ve been at 6’4 1/3. It’s usually 193.7-193.9 for me but normally 193.7-193.8. I suspect that Rob is 5’8 1/8 as a normal low and after a football match etc he may dip to 5’8” flat. Andrea may be right that he may dip to 5’7 7/8. This mkes sense if he’s 5’8.75-.8 out of bed. An extreme low would likely be no more than 5’8”. 5’8 1/8 can’t be his extreme low (at least I doubt it is). Only Rob has never seen it but he’s also 8” shorter than I am. I’ve come as low as 193.1 one time when I experimented by staying on my feet one night and having been to the gym. 193.1 is an entire 1/4” below my normal low.

As far as Bobby, not sure which is which. I thought 5’9.75 was his normal low and 5’10.5 out of bed which would make sense 3/4”. 5’9.5 would almost appear as an extreme low if he’s 5’10.5 out of bed being that would be an entire inch that he would lose in a day and for someone his size that’s a lot. My extreme low is only an inch below my out of bed (maybe 2.6-2.7 depending on where I wake up that day).
Zampo said on 9/Sep/18
@Andrea, agreed. I think a lot of people on this forum would drop to what they call their "extreme low" on the typical schedule Rob has on a comic con day where he measures 5'8 1/8.

@Rob, out of interest, what is the lowest amount of height loss over a day that you have come across? Is 0.5 inch loss from morning to evening possible?
Editor Rob
Almost 3/4 high and low about 0.4-0.5, on days the spine isn't put under that much strain.
cmillzz said on 9/Sep/18
@Canson - have you seen this video?

Click Here

You can see that Rob’s morning height in that video was pretty much a flat 5’9, and that was only a few years ago...
cmillzz said on 9/Sep/18
correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think Rob has ever measured lower than 5’8.25” in any of his videos.
Editor Rob
Any 5ft 8.25 on blue stadiometer is really the 1/8th mark, I am sure there are a couple out there.
Nik said on 9/Sep/18
But ... I think that 5'8' is the most neutral adult male height on the planet! Even in several western countries I think the average is 5'8", although possibly with plentiful change! I think the world average for men is near 5'8" flat, or a little bit less!
Nik said on 9/Sep/18
@ Littlelee168cm - That's interesting! I see 5'9" as average and anything two or more inches under it as short and anything two or more inches over the average as tall!
Ben said on 8/Sep/18
I'd say 5'6" is more shortish-below average. 5'6" is average height for men globally. Yes the difference between 5'6" and 5'8" is quite a lot in my opinion (considering 5'6" is around my eyelevel and 5'8" is not that far from my height (5"10.5") but still I'd look at a 5'8" man and think; "Yeah that man is quite a bit shorter". I'd say 5'4.5"-5'7.5" is the global average height for men, 5'7"-5'9.5" for US/Uk, 5'8"-5'11" for Scandinavia and Netherlands (might be more 5'11.25" for Netherlands).
Littlelee168cm said on 8/Sep/18
Sorry but if 5ft 7 is not downright short then neither is 5ft 6 and a 5ft 8 guy isn't much bigger than 5ft 6 cmillzz so your the delusional one here

I very much agree with you, Rob. Not much more I can say.

Cameron M said on 7/Sep/18
Rob is it unusual for someone to lose over an inch throughout the day?
Editor Rob
It's a good 1/4-1/2 inch more than your average shrinkage (assuming you mean 1.1-1.2 inches).

@Gylfi
How tall you were at 17 in centimetres? Can you remember?
Littlelee168cm said on 7/Sep/18
Bobby I'd say your 5ft 10 as if I was 5ft 5.75" I'd say I was 5ft 6 myself as you really couldn't tell the difference I'm a quarter inch above 5ft 6 but just say I'm 5ft 6 just ignore the likes of authur! The guys got no life. Christian I'm English and think my average height guess is pretty accurate
Andrea said on 6/Sep/18
Zampo, actually, me too, speaking in metric (which I agree causes less problems when it comes to height), I see Rob as a (very strong) 173 guy and Bobby as a 177 guy, so about 4 cms apart, but I'm sure that what Bobby calls his "extreme low", so 5'9 5/8 or so, isn't really an extreme low, but what he would be measure after an active day, the same way Rob can dip to 5'8 1/8 (the lowest he's ever measured). After a football match or a heavy gym session, I'm sure he could dip below that, the same way Rob could dip to 5'8 (or even a bit under)...
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Bobby: Connor said it well. “About 5’10” covers you being a bit over 5’10 in the AM and a little under in the evening or even if you were a solid 5’10” or strong (5’10.25), it would still cover you either way. A lot of people say “about”
cmillzz said on 6/Sep/18
I know plenty of guys who stopped growing at 14 too, just like Rob.
cmillzz said on 6/Sep/18
5’10 is a very average height, let’s be clear on that. Certainly isn’t tall at all.
cmillzz said on 6/Sep/18
2 inches below the average isn’t enough to be considered “short”. Now 3 inches, that’s a different story.
cmillzz said on 6/Sep/18
Also, if 5’8 is “short” then 5’10 is “tall”. You realize how stupid that sounds?
cmillzz said on 6/Sep/18
@littlelee, sorry to say but there’s quite a big difference between 5’6 and 5’8 vidually, and just by going off the stats there’s a big difference. 5’6 is short without a doubt, but 5’8 is close enough to average to be considered average. 5’6 is like 15th percentile, 5’8 is closer to 35th percentile and as Nik mentioned once could even be closer to 40th percentile.

5’7 is kinda short, but not downright short. I’d say “shortish” is a good description for 5’7. But 5’6 is definitely short in my books, sorry. I haven’t really come across anyone who thinks 5’8 is short, but people agree almost unanimously that 5’6 is short.

Rob isn’t short, he’s an average sized guy. Get over it.
Editor Rob

CelebHeights has always tried to show the diversity of height in famous people, which mirrors real life. It's fascinating that humans have varied from under 3ft to as tall as nearly 9ft.

Height can also be quite relative and personal. One may physically measure shorter than others, but that same person could feel quite tall based on other attributes they posses or generally how they think.
Sakz said on 6/Sep/18
@Connor Simpson To be completely honest there are also some people on here who seem obsessed with bringing up Bobby's height or challenging it so it's not just him. People can suggest what someone should claim but at the end of the day it's up to the individual.
Arthur! said on 6/Sep/18
@Andrea
I remember too that Bobby let it slip that he once measured 5'9.5 on the dot on a really bad day. He is exactly 1.5 inch taller than Rob, if not any less, since Rob appears to measure near 5'8 3/8 quite often actually on his youtube videos.
Sakz said on 6/Sep/18
@Bobby This is CH a height forum, so it's natural people will question your height to the most accurate figure. As long as you don't inflate yourself and others you're fine to claim whatever (so in your case 5'10 is perfectly fine).
Connor Simpson said on 6/Sep/18
Well no offence Bobby but you do talk quite a lot about your height on here which does give people (including myself) that impression that you may have it, but if you don't like what some people on here say then just simply ignore them and stop obsessing about your height and it's pointless to keep trying to convince some people you're the height you claim when they will only end up arguing about it all over again and say something that you won't like and end up getting infuriated, you have your opinions yeah but so do others, to be honest I feel a bit of a hypocrite now after when I said it was a fact that you're almost/about 5'10 but really its just my opinion aswell, anyway like Canson has said many times before you're probably better off just going with about 5'10, just embrace you're height dude and be happy.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Sep/18
@Littlelee

What country do you live in?
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Connor: agreed. And a weak 5’10 guy wouldn’t be deprived of it in public if they claimed 5’10 unless it were a guy who claimed 5’10 that’s like 5’10 3/8 or 1/2 or something and doesn’t know he’s 3/8” or 1/2” over the mark. 5’9.5-.75 is my definition of a weak 5’10 and that’s where he would fall whether it be extreme or normal low and that’s still enough to say “about 5’10”. And to me “about 5’10” can mean a bit under or “a bit over” (5’10.25-.5) or 5’9.5-.75
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Rob: that’s my entire point. A football match or other strenuous activity would bring you to the extreme low of 5’8” (a few mm under 5’8 1/8). Of course 5’8 1/8 is your norm but was explaining to Arthur that 5’9.75 would be Bobby’s.
Nik said on 6/Sep/18

Gylfi said on 6/Sep/18
Hey Rob,

This is completely unrelated to the thread but if I were 184cm in the morning and then no shorter than 182cm at night could I still claim to be 6ft? I’m still only 18 so I may grow another cm or too which I hope will happen.
Editor Rob
Many men would claim 6ft if 182 at worse.

It's not like you are 180cm claiming 6ft...'about/almost 6ft' could work for you.
Bobby said on 5/Sep/18
@Connor Simpson, I don't have OCD Connor, I just don't have the patience to deal with general BS about my height. I've got my own opinions here and I am telling you, I certainly do not feel short at my height and I prefer to think of myself as a 5'10 guy.

Rob how come you give yourself this low of a mark. In your videos you look 5ft8.25in at least. I saw you were measuring around 173.5 comfortably but not as high as 174. On the challenger thing you have yourself at 5'8 and a quarter. You seem to edge out 5ft8in rangers comfortably, even 5ft8.5cm listed people or 174cm.

On more physical days I will get to my low more than say an office style job, so I go with the 173cm mark as I think that is more close to what I'd be when meeting actors.

@ Sakz - I agree with you, in some places the average will be 5'8" though and in some smaller settlements it may even be lower than that! I think that 5'6", 5'7", 5'8", 5'9", and 5'10", are very normal in the UK!

Rob's 173 cm claim is one with confidence where he knows that in any circumstance he will always measure "near" 173 cm (whether slightly over or under). It's the reason why I'm more inclined to claim 182 cm (182.5 cm at the usual low, 4 mm off 6'0). I know that no matter the situation whether after sparring/gym sessions, on my feet all day or on a typical day etc, if measured it's likely I would be nearer to 182 cm than 183 cm, that said 183 cm would also be reasonable.

I think the imperial measurement causes more issues regarding height claims, differentials etc. Most would agree with Bobby at 177 cm and Rob at 173 cm is fair with a 4 cm difference between in the two.

I would claim 173cm if using metric, but 5ft 8 if saying imperial.

I think even if a small fraction under 5ft 8 I'd still say that mark...but if only 5ft 7.5 would have went with that.

How many more years I hold onto 5ft 8 evening I won't know. That age of 60-70 is where most men will begin to suffer more noticeable losses.

No Christian I see 5ft 10 as average and anything 2 or more inches under it as short and anything 2 inches or more above it as tall

@Canson I've nothing against Bobby I do like him as a poster on here but he is really obsessed about his height, I agree with what Andrea said about embracing his height, if he just accepts the fact that he is almost or about 5'10 then he would feel much better, its not like he's short or anything, I think he will benefit from having a break for a few weeks, he might not be thinking about his height as much afterwards, to me it seems like he could have OCD as I have said before I have it myself and I used to be exactly the same when I was obsessed about my height once, he does show symptoms of it but yeah as for his height 5ft 9.75 is decent.

Hey Rob, will you ever reboot the 'sneakers height' page again. I know it sucks that Google has boycotted that page for some really dumb reason. But maybe put it somewhere in your site where everyone can see, like in the homepage of your site. Something like that. If you can. Or is there going to be issues with that?
Editor Rob
I haven't given up on the idea, though it does attract a lot of web scrapers because of the content (sneakers).

@Redwing I'm around 185cm and 167cm comes pretty much on my mouth. On someone 187cm it would probably be just under.

Hey Rob and all!

This morning I caught the tail end of the dating programme 'Dress to Impress'. It was one devoted to gay girls and guess what? They were all about finding themselves a TALL girl or a girl who was 'tall enough', but if she was very pretty, it might 'make up for it', ie less height. Miaow! 😼

Well, there you go! It's not just guys who long to be tall....
Editor Rob
I'm sure the importance of height in a partner varies tremendously amongst the population. For some it seems to have great importance, for others it's given barely a passing thought.
Sakz said on 3/Sep/18
@Nik That's typically for where I live which is in the UK where the average is 5'9 self reported (although I wouldn't be surprised if it's lower). Of course it would vary depending on where you live and in some places 5'10 may just be average, with 5'11 being above average and 6'0 being tallish.
