Rob, other than Hafthor and Mark Henry, do you plan on meeting other strong man or nah?
Editor Rob
I really have no idea when I'll next meet another celebrity.

Strikes me as a 6'5" barefoot guy. Maybe a tad over when out of bed. He seems around 1.5" shorter than Brian Shaw.
Musashi said on 16/Jun/21
On the official World's Strongest Man website his 2021 listing has him at 6'4".
Hammad Raza said on 16/Mar/21
He sometimes looks tall sometimes a 6'4 guy I would say b/w 6'4 to 6'5
Cnut the Great said on 19/Jan/21
OB used to claim 6'8". i think he changed that when he realized Shaw claims 6'8" and he is obviously shorter. OB is 6'6"
Hyper said on 11/Dec/20
I’m extremely surprised he wears converse sneakers in that photo.

Maybe Brian tends to have footwear advantage, at times.

Here he is with Shaw. Pretty good picture. Click Here. I'd say hes 6'5 even.
recapa said on 2/Nov/20
196-197cm .2 inches shorter than shaw.
Magista said on 23/Sep/20
He is easily 2 inches shorter than Shaw. If Shaw is listed as 6'7, than RB is at most 6'5.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Jul/20
He can look a full 6 ft 6 at times with Brian Shaw, but 197 seems about right. Along with Shaw, the most likeable out of all the strongmen.
Space said on 6/Jul/20
Maybe 3.5” on Eddie Hall.
Space said on 6/Jul/20
Oberst is 6’5” at the most. He has about 3” on 6’2“ max Eddie Hall.
Jkiller said on 20/May/20
Honestly looks 6'5.25 (196cm)
Patrick Loughran said on 9/May/20
In his defence he loves being barefoot for some reason so some photos he may not be wearing shoes

How would someone like Bo Burnham, stack up, with this?
Editor Rob
Very well in height terms, in weight-lifting terms, I think Obert's got him beat.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Mar/20
Seeing him with Shaw and Hall on the History documentary I thought he looked about 6 ft 6. Not far off Brian's height. 6'5.5 is a good shout.
Canson said on 16/Nov/19
His proportions and his weight make him look shorter than he is

@Myself and Sotiris: he looks shorter than his claim. Btw Ralf Moeller looks no less than 6’5” even today. He was prob a legit 6’5.5 peak
Myself said on 15/Nov/19
Rob, I think he really needs a huge downgrade, as he's certainly nowhere near this. With (recently downgraded to a more realistic figure) Brian Shaw: Click Here

I'm glad Sotiris sees the truth too; this guy isn't even 6'5, 100%.
Editor Rob
I can see how 6ft 5 is a possibility at times for him.
berta said on 2/Nov/19
Click Here he have claimed 6 foot 8 a couple of times. Strange for sutch a large guy to claim 2 inches over his height. i really dont know how tall he is but maybe he is half inch over this andwas measured in shoes and round upp :P
Animus said on 30/Oct/19
He could be 197cm.
Ben Bell said on 17/Oct/19

@Christian: I wonder why though. I mean even at 6’4” that’s plenty for me
Yas said on 17/Sep/19
He's pretty obviously 6'6 range.
tree said on 16/Sep/19
Has atleast 10cm on Eddie Click Here
Lambo said on 16/Sep/19
Agreed, no way is Oberst 6'6". No taller than 6'4.5" in my opinion.
Anon11 said on 13/Sep/19
Oberst is no taller than 6'5''. 6'6'' is hilarious and 6'7.5" is ludicrous.
Yas said on 30/Jul/19
Just saw him with Brian Shaw on The Strongest Men in History. There wasn't 2 inches between them. I'd guess an inch.
John barrett said on 29/Jul/19
He was On the Joe Rogan show just recent, he was talking about Brian Shaw and said he was 2 inches shorter then Brian who is 6' 8''.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Jul/19
Yet he claims 6'7.5", lol. The notion that most 6'5"+ guys are honest is totally false.
cmillzz said on 25/Jul/19
Think I’m gonna have to go with @Myself on this one. Really don’t think he’s any taller than 6’5.
Canson said on 24/Jul/19
He doesn’t look as low as 6’4/6’5. He looks as if he would be comfortably over the 6’5 mark but probably more like 196-197 range best case.
Canson said on 24/Jul/19
He doesn’t look as low as 6’4/6’5. He looks as if he would be comfortably over the 6’5 mark but probably more like 6’5-6’5.5 max
tree said on 24/Jul/19
Robert Oberst looks 198-199cm
Next to Brian Shaw on Worlds Strongest Men in History Click Here
Myself said on 22/Jul/19
I think he has a chance between 6'4 1/4-1/2 up to a max 6'4.75. Even like 6'3.5 is possible if you ask me, but I think less likely than a strong 6'4. I'll have to check everything again in some time and see what my personal final guess will be; no chance of him being over 6'5 whatsoever imho though.

Thank you ;)

And 187 Eddie Hall Click Here

the first image surely the guy in the middle of Shaw and Eddie is photoshopped is head looks funnily disproportioned
tree said on 18/Jul/19
Here they are without shoes, looks 198 next to Eddie and Brian Click Here
Canson said on 18/Jul/19
His weight and body proportions take attention away from how tall he really is. He doesn’t give off the impression of a true 6’6” at a low of he really is to start with. But some heavier guys tend to not stand up as straight. Not uncommon for a 375lb guy. Although 6’6 wouldn’t surprise me standing straight, 6’5 1/2 wont either
Nik said on 17/Jul/19
He was described accurately
Canson said on 17/Jul/19
@Cmillz: he doesn’t have the proportions of a 6’6” guy.

@Rob: I would guess him 6’5.5 before 6’6.25

If he’s 6’6, he’s the shortest looking 6’6 guy I’ve ever seen.
cmillzz said on 16/Jul/19
No, you’re probably right. You’re one of the better guessers on this site.
Myself said on 16/Jul/19
I don't really get it. Maybe I'm bad a guessing, but by all the videos I saw of him with Shaw, he always looked way shorter than just 1-1.5". He manages to look 6'6 only when he is on top toes, like here Click Here
This is not how a 6'6 person looks next to an almost 6'8 person Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/19
Rob, is a little over 6ft6 possible?

His claim is definitely a shoe height
Editor Rob
6ft 6.25 would be the most I'd give him.
Ek said on 15/Jul/19
At around 1:38 of this video, he claims 6’8”.

Click Here
Myself said on 15/Jul/19
Nice add, but... he's nowhere near this imo.
I can't see this man above 6'4.5-6'5. That's the max he could ever be imo, and I actually think he's in the 6'4 range. He always looked AT LEAST 3 inches shorter than 6'7 Brian Shaw and TBH the photos you posted only confirm my theory, considering he looks close to 4 inches shorter than Hafthor.
Btw that photo with Eddie and the others together, is photoshopped.

I dig the pink trainers! Why can't I find any that cute? 😁👟👟😋
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jul/19
Robert Oberst's bursting with vigour and vitality, that's for sure.

6ft6 and 375 pounds? That's 26 stone 11 pounds - WOW, especially as it's muscle rather than blubber! How much protein does Robert have to eat daily to maintain that sort of body? Of course, the normal BMI charts wouldn't apply to Robert and other body builders. You'd need skin calipers in order to find out his BMI, and you can get special weighing scales which can measure how your body is made up. They aren't even that expensive. I bought some in Sainsbury's with my food shopping one New Year! ⚖️😁👍

I shall opt for a strong 6 foot 6.💪
Animus said on 14/Jul/19
From having watched some of the videos he has done with Brian Shaw, I also pegged him at 6'6. He usually claims 6'7, I believe, which represents a standard level of inflation in the world of professional sports. It's certainly less of a blatant exaggeration than Eddie Hall's 6'3 claim.
tree said on 14/Jul/19
198cm looks accurate
