Yeah, 6'8" for him sees about right. I've also seen 6'7" listings for him on other sites. If he's 6'7", then I can see Rupaul at 6'3", even though I doubt he's that low.

@ChristianRoberts I agree pictures with his husband had me confused but it looks like Lebar is just erroneously listed as 6’5” on Google. Most other sources say 6’8” which aligns with RuPaul at 6’4” — a height he has consistently looked for the last 25 years.

@Editor Rob: in front of the doorways he looked as if his head was going to touch it when he was in drag. If he wasn’t 6’4” back in 1996, he had to be 6’3 3/4” i would say

@Editor Rob: what’s the verdict here with LL Cool J when he’s not in drag in the beginning of the show at his house?

I thought he seemed quite close to 6ft 4. Nowadays Ru might be shrinking.

@ Hijopotamus - Was this guy in 'Fight Club'? I've seen in countless times, but I have never taken in that he stars in it! He must look completely different to how he does now. Let's face it, at 6ft4, he won't exactly be hard to spot!
I had no idea Ru Paul did acting.

I believe he also made a cameo on In the House, LL Cool J’s tv sitcom in the mid to late 90s. That was actually the first time I ever saw him out of drag. He was clearly taller than LL too

He’s always been around 6’4”. He wouldn’t be 4” shorter than a legit 6’5”
ChristianRoberts said on 22/Apr/20
I believe he needs a downgrade because his husband is listed as 6'5 so how can Rupaul be 6'4 when there is clearly 4 or more inches between them when they are side by side

Please, Rob, add photo to his page and add him to the pop singers category.

Ru Paul husband was like 6'6 and taller.

he looks 6'3 at best, I think he is more 6'2"5 (189 cm)

In Fight Club he looked 70kg max 8-9% bodyfat

I was just going through 'all the P's' when I came across a familiar name. I thought "isn't that that guy who dresses up and holds contests for like minded people?"
So I checked out his picture and found that it certainly is! I've seen his show advertised and also saw that Juliette Lewis was a guest on it!
Now that is seriously cool! I also could see they were having a great time so I might check the show out!
I can't say that I'm massively stunned at his height of 6ft4
because I can visualize him right now and yes, he does stand head and shoulders above the others on the show, from what little I've seen of it!
He's doing his own thing and I really think people like that are to be admired!

Used to always look anywhere from 6ft8 to 6ft10 in those huge heels

rob is this guy the same guy who works in a drag?There's an interesting photo of this guy with a 5'9 guy who thought he was 6'5 or 6'7 with heels.

Btw,he's listed 6'7 by most sites which is bs tbh.

My heeight is just 1.97 mt. And I wear as often as posible my 8.5" heels, so this shoes incease my height in just 7.75" no more, that is 19 cm, so my complete height arrives to 2.16 cm. I'm a complete admirer of Ru Paul.
Jai said on 25/Feb/11
He has legs for days
Cassy said on 17/Feb/11
Looks more like 7'1 on Drag Race when in Heels

Ru is NOT "famous for being famous"... that would be people like Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, who's initial "talents" came after the fame. RuPaul is famous for being a drag queen and a SINGER!

Anyways I met Ru a few months back and he is really tall, but not like crazy Shaq tall... 6'4 indeed.
Ange said on 3/Feb/09
Why am I hearing 6'7 sans heels and hair!!! Damn. 6'4 is enough and makes sense considering she used to be a 'male' model.
Tallie said on 16/Jun/07
Oooh - I'm slightly taller than him. Ive been thinking of becoming a drag queen as I like fashion.

Its a pity this site has nothing about tall dating as I know there are lots of women who want to meet tall men like me!
Damien said on 18/May/07
Ru and I go way back, he is 6'4" without heels and his attitude? taller than him lol... but with a geat heart...
antron said on 11/Apr/07
yeah he is this tall. He actually went to my high school briefly (he was kicked out, supposedly for being caught with weed)
Anthony said on 11/Nov/06
I read a book that describes him as 7 feet tall. Seriously. But in all honesty, 6'4 is most accurate. I've seen 6'7 as well.
D.J. said on 24/Jul/06
I've seen 6'7" listings. He must have been in heels so 6'4" barefoot is probably correct.
