How tall is Ryan Seacrest

Ryan Seacrest's Height

5ft 7 ½ (171.5 cm)

American tv host known for Idol. He said to CNN that he doesn't get bothered he's "5'9" and people call me short". Recently HollywoodLife claimed that he said "actually, I'm 5' 8" but my shoes tonight make me 5'8" and three quarters. I don't wear lifts, but one of the judges does. Guess who". On his own Twitter he also gave another height: "5'8.5". In 2015 he mentioned his weight, saying he was "149 pounds".

Who cares how tall Ryan is?? Who cares how tall anyone is??? Why do you people talk like it’s shameful to be short? And why are you trying to downgrade people’s height? No, Ryan is not 5’4”. Ridiculous. All of you.

If this is his real height, then he's one of the few celebs who isn't as short as most expect. 5'7.5" isn't that short. I always figured he was 5'6" flat.

He just interviewed 5'7" James McAlvoy on the Oscars red carpet. Ryan's at least 2" shorter (5'5").

Low cut shoes, hard to hide lifts in those shoes so he is Justin Bieber height or a bit more

And he's clearly wearing lifts in this pic..look how bloated the top of his feet/shoes are in this pic
Lawrence said on 30/Apr/18
@lorelei..you mean anything under 5'9" and the more horsey the face and the bigger the forehead etc and usually people under 5'9" are not good looking men. As soon a man 5'11 and up doesnt really matter how looks because that nice bih strong body will compensate. My opinion is men under 5'9" are really not good looking at all not only face/head structure wise but also body wise. Also keep in mind that being under 5'9" you will even feel shorter many many times along taller women. Me being 5'8" when ever i go out be it a store or a casino
...5 times out of 10 i feel SO short walking past taller women than me...its an aweful aweful powerless feeling. Makes me want to fight physically with men AND women. Kinda lol.
Lawrence said on 29/Apr/18
No way seacrest is 5'7.5"! Have u seen him lately on american idol?? Omg he looks VERY short almost like a dwarf beside almost ALL contestants. And we arent talking about 4 inches shorter...he looks almost 6 to 8 inches shorter tham almost everyone. Im going with 5'6" or 5'6.5" with him. He must have been wearing lift kinda shoes in the past because now he looks VERY diminutive on the show. Watch it and you will know what im saying!

Most good-looking men are shorter than 5 nine. The taller the man, the more horsey the face.

As a weak 5'7er, I can say that's utter horse s***.

One of the idol candidates (one famous for being an audition reject) lives in my neighborhood in Manhattan and he is about 5'5. I have stood next to him a couple of times. He was maybe an inch shorter than Seacrest on the show. 5'7 is pushing it. Seacrest has to be closer to 5'6. Also compare him with Sacha Baron Cohen on the red carpet. Remember that? Haha.

Pretty funny video from over 10 years ago on American Idol. Watch the very beginning of the video. The girl calls out Ryan on his 5'9" claim.


That girl is nowhere near 5'9" herself. I've highly suspected Ryan of wearing lifts for quite some time now, but anything he could squeeze into those dress shoes wouldn't come close to compensating for the enormous heels she's rocking. Put them back to back barefoot and I can almost 100% guarantee Seacrest would be taller. Shows he isn't nearly as height-conscious as most people make him out to be or he would've challenged her further, but he really didn't care. Also shows that the girl is just an arrogant, insecure, jealous hater.

I use to think he was a flat 5'7", but I can't see him much shorter than 5'7.5". 171 cm minimum and 172 cm max. Here he pulls off the same as height as Mario Lopez in similar shoes: Click Here Posture seems decent. Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if Ryan and Simon are the same height. Simon can look as tall as Lopez, but it's clear he's a bit shorter and Simon goes to bed wearing heels and lifts and has the posture to match. Simon will never let himself be photographed without lifts with Ryan. The difference would be very small, that's for sure. Also, Seacrest looked taller than legit 5'7" James McAvoy on video, so that's another example to those who think McAvoy is taller than he claims. Simply an honest 5'7" and Ryan is a guy who is reasonable rounding up to 5'8", but pushed his luck with 5'9".

@MJkop

He never said that he's shorter than Bieber.
In the interview he asked bieber you have boots on & I don't. Are you taller than me? Bieber said yes I think I am. Seacrest then laugh and said I guess you are.

Pictures of Seacrest show him edging out Bieber in low cut shoes by atleast a inch!
Johnson said on 28/Mar/17
He is honest he is taller than 5'7.5 just look at his frame. He is 5'8.5

He is similar to Bieber. Bieber is 5'8.25 minimum

Jake said on 19/Feb/17
If he actually is in the strong 5'7" to weak 5'8" range, then I begin to question why he always gets made fun of for "being short. Sure that's below average but it isn't that short.

And on top of that, Seacrest HIMSELF stated that Justin Bieber was taller than him. And I think Ryan would be one of the last people on the planet to concede that he was shorter than someone if he wasn't. Instead of going by a picture, I'd go by words straight from the mouth of a guy with an obvious height complex who has spent ample time on numerous occasions with the Biebs.
MJKoP said on 26/Oct/16
To me, he never looks under 5'8", but a Playboy model(whose name I forget) who lived and SLEPT(sans intercourse) with Ryan Seacrest said in a Howard Stern interview that Ryan was shorter than she is. I looked her up and she's listed everywhere as 5'7". Given the circumstances I just described, they MUST have been in each others' presence both while being barefoot at at least some point in time, if not quite often. If what this woman says is true, Seacrest must be a seriously heavy "lifter".
Kei said on 7/Sep/16
How can you have both Justin Bieber and Ryan Seacrest at 171cm?

The only time Bieber looks to have an edge on Ryan is if he steps forward in the photo.

Next to 5'7" McAvoy, assuming similar footwear no lifts on either.

seacrest is taller like he says he is (at 5'8 range), or bieber listing becomes a little questionable again...
Robby D said on 9/Feb/15
I watched the Red Carpet prior to the Grammy Awards 2015 and Pharrell Williams and Keith Urban were both 2 - 3ins taller than Ryan Seacrest and Williams wore flat sneaker style shoes. Rob, you have to downgrade Seacrest, he is 5'7" maximum, probably less from what I saw tonight.

If you look at that photo with Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Kimmel is also there. Kimmel claims 6'1" but this site has him at 5'11.5". Based on Kimmel I don't see Seacrest at 5'8".
Robby D said on 21/Jul/14
The Exorcist. Interesting photo and if Ellen is 5'7" then based that photo I would say Ryan is about 5'7.5", however, I have my doubts about Ellen's height. She has claimed both 5'8" and 5'7.5" yet she looks more like 5'6" to 5'6.5" to me.

He's very similar to (5'7" listed) Ellen.

Saw some Grammy pics of Kendrick Lamar with Miguel and Pharrell. Pharrell looked a good three inches taller than Miguel, and Miguel looked a good two inches taller than Kendrick. The 5'6" listings you see on the internet for Kendrick are complete bunk, and another example of the two-inch rule. I always knew he wasn't 5'6". He never looked it.
ian said on 28/Jan/14
He towers over Kendrick Lamar.
MD said on 16/Jan/14
Anyone have any pictures of him at the Golden Globes red carpet? I had the program on, but mostly for background noise, so I didn't really notice him look particularly short. Maybe somewhere in between 5'7" flat and 5'7.5" might be a better listing.
Robby D said on 14/Jan/14
I agree entirely with leonari, Ryan Seacrest looked exactly the same height as Jonah Hill. In fact my wife, who never misses the golden globes could not help noticing how short he was and said, "Seacrest must be a midget, everyone towers over him." She never usually notices people's heights unless they are exceptionally tall or short!
leonari said on 12/Jan/14
Watching the red carpet at the globes. Seacrest doe not look a mm above 170. If that. Looked the same height as Jonah hill.
the shredder said on 22/Nov/13
I'd give him 5'8 if it was not for the 5'8 guy Rob met edging him out.
Dan said on 29/Sep/13
Looking through all the pics and vids makes me come to the conclusion that he's probably more likely to be 5'7"-5'7.25" barefoot.
Robby D said on 22/Sep/13
I believe him when he says he doesn't wear lifts but here's the deal. He said he was 5'8" barefoot and 5'8.75" in the shoes he was wearing on that particular night. Now he claims 5'8.5". I assume when he referred to the shoes he was wearing he meant, dress shoes. Now what dress shoes have only 1/2" or 3/4" heel? Even flat Converse are around 3/4". I saw him interviewing celebrities before the Emmy Awards tonight and again he looked up to all of them. Oddly enough the only one he seemed to be similar in height to was Michael Douglas who is listed at over 5'9".
Robby D said on 6/Aug/13
I always agreed with Leonari regarding Seacrest's height. I thought he was about 5'7" barefoot but well proportioned to give the impression he might be taller when seen alone. However, recently seeing him looking up at alomost every male and female he interviews, I am now thinking he might be nearer 5'6"- 5'6.5" barefoot. No disrespect to him intended but 5'8.5" is not that short and anyone of that height would not be looking up to everyone nor receiving the height jibes that he does.
leonari said on 26/Jul/13
Ryan on a Radio show claimed 5'8.5 and mentioned that figure several times. Never is he 5'8.5 barefoot. NEVER.

Yeah, that was weird last night on idol.

Probably 5'8.5" in shoes.

ryan seacrest is a little hollywood guy. 5'-7" on a good day (with shoes) if you watch him on AI he is shorter than anyone on the show, with
shoes.

He's short. ALl I know. I'm like 6'1" maybe. or above 6'
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/13
", I'm 5' 8" but my shoes tonight make me 5'8" and three quarters. " Mmm so he's claiming 5 ft 8 barefeet, rounding up then isn't he.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/13
5'8.5" I believe him, in shoes. He was probably measured around 174 in shoes and rounded up to claim 5 ft 9, much like Tom Cruise. I actually think they are genuine about it but they imply that's their barefoot height, most Americans claim shoe height.
LeeLee said on 30/Jan/13
He looks about 5'7.5"-at most 5'8"
Mathew said on 11/Oct/12
5'7.5" is pretty fair for Seacrest. It was always obvious he wasn't 5'9".
Shaun said on 5/Sep/12
He looks the same height as Tom Cruise. 5'7.5 looks right.
matt678 said on 17/Aug/12
5 foot 7 or 5 foot 8 is correct
Ka said on 12/Aug/12
leonari: sure thing! This guys is as listed. I don't understand why he claimed a bunch of different height, especially when he revealed his real height, then fudge it up again. He isn't short, even at barely 5'8. I'm 5'8 flat and I would think twice at claiming morning height or big rounding up
leonari said on 11/Aug/12
Ka: I totally agree!!!

I swear, when this guy stands alone, he can appears 5'9-5'10, good proportion, slim, small and short head, and good fitting clothes. Optical illusion though, as 5'8.25 Trevino got him a little bit
Robby D said on 1/Aug/12
During the Olympics in London, Seacrest was standing alongside Al Roker who also claims to be 5'8" and they looked the same size. Needless to say Roker is another one who people believe exaggerates his height.

5'7.5 is better , taller then an honest 5'7 MCavoy and it fits his 5'8.5 , 5'8.75 in shoes !

I'm willing to believe up to 5'7.5", but I don't think he is more. If he is 5'7.5", yes he would hit 5'8.5" - 5'8.75" in normal shoes.

I think his new 5'8.5 claim is in shoes ... google the pic with him and James Mcavoy who claims 5'7 because that site is not showing , but you can see it on google images . I'd say the only way seacrest is more over james barefoo is if james has bigger shoes .
[Editor Rob: could be shoe difference. McAvoy always looks a 5ft 7 guy]

I found something interesting about Kris Allen's height!

Click Here

Click on the link and listen to the audio. This is a radio interview where Kris claims 5'7". Hmm, I dunno, I think this is a case of rounding up. I just can't buy 5'7" for Kris. On Ellen, he didn't even reach her height, he was like an inch shorter.
Phil said on 22/Jun/09
In either case, you would be shorter than Ryan. 5'3 would put you at his eye level and 5'4 1/2 would put you a half inch below the middle of his forehead.

As for Danny Gokey, if you're 5'3 flat, then I think you would be about an inch below his eye level. If you're 5'4 and a half, then you would be an inch above his eye level (his eyebrows). In any case, you're shorter than Danny. :) My estimate for him is 5'8.

Overall, at a nice height of 5'3-5'4 1/2, you are shorter than both Ryan and Danny. :)

Have fun at the tour!
Danny Gokeys Girl said on 21/Jun/09
So like does anyone know how this would look..ok im 5-3/5'4 and a half and if i was standing next to Ryan Secrest would I be taller than him..oh but what i wanna know most is would I be shorter or taller than Danny Gokey?

Barefoot I would have estimated 5'7"-5'7.5" for Seacrest.

I've met Adam Levine. I'm 5'9. It was before he was famous. He was my height - exactly eye level. They all wear lifts. Seacrest's varying heights is due to soles/lifts. Find pics of him on a beach flat foot.

Rob , if you ever added " The Glasses Guy " Danny Gokey , what would you add him at ? And do you think the tall guy Adam Lambert is a full 6'1 ?
MD said on 1/Jun/09
Kim, that simply isn't true. Even if you include the older generations and all ethnicities, the average height in the U.S. for a man is still 5'9.4" according to the most recent government statistics. You take only younger white and black men, and bother their averages are over 5'10". Many people don't seem to realize this, for some reasons, but the info is readily available.
Phil said on 31/May/09
It's more 5'10" than 5'7"/5'8" and 5'7" is already short. Most men are 5'6" min and taller, so 5'7"/5'8" isn't the average. You can see this with the guys on Idol, where guys like Kris and Ryan come off as short.

Paula Abdul is 5'0" barefoot.
Kim said on 30/May/09
average height for a man is 5-7/5-8. so he is average. not short.

Seacrest's 5'9" claim is funny enough, I doubt he'd claim 5'10". I'd bet that Ryan is a flat five seven.

Kris isn't anything over 5'6", I can buy 5'5.5" for him. Danny can look 5'7.5" and 5'8" flat. He appears to be more 5'8" though, as he gives a 5'8" impression and has the proportions of a 5'8" guy. Adam appears to be the standard tall guy at 6'1".
Mathew said on 24/May/09
Danny 5'8" and Kris 5'5.5" maybe?

I think Danny is a good 5'7.5 or 5'8 more 5'8 , Adam could be 6'1 , Kris I don't think is as short as 5'5 , but could be as tall as 5'6.5 !

Kris Allen strikes me as being somewhere between 5'5" and 5'6". I saw a pic of him with Ellen, recently, and he looked as if he was at least an inch shorter.

I'm seriously surprised you have him at this height. I believe he is a strong 5'7, but a 5'7 none the less. This is too high. As for the other idols, Adam claims 6'1. It was on his myspace, before he began editing his profile for the show. I seriously think Kris 5'5.5" Danny appears to be about 5'8 flat.

I'm not sure if Danny is slouching or not, but I see him as more of a 5'8" guy still in those pics. He never looks 5'9" next to Seacrest.

Danny has a tendency to slouch. Gokey is a lot closer to 5'9" than he is 5'8":

Gokey is still taller and as tall as all of the judges and the announcer even with his slouch and their obvious suspicious footwear.

Kris looked to be the same height as Keith Urban and he's probably 5'6 max

No MD , He does not look that much taller , Danny Was next to Lionel Richie and looked 5'8 ! Shocking Kris won , A real " Dark Horse " for sure !
MD said on 21/May/09
Shredder,

Danny is a good two inches or so taller than Ryan and that's even in Ryan's obvious funny footwear.
the shredder said on 20/May/09
This is what I think !

Danny 5'7.5

Adam 6'0 or 6'1

Kris 5'6 !
the shredder said on 18/May/09
Rob , what do you think about Those guys heights next to Seacrest ?

[Editor Rob: one looks roughly same, other guy maybe a good 4-5 inches taller, and other guy looks possible 2 short. It's hard sometimes with small images.]
Phil said on 18/May/09
the shredder, here's what I think:

Adam - 6'1"
Danny - 5'7.5"
Kris - 5'5"
Phil said on 18/May/09
Rob, I think David Cook and David Archuleta would be nice additions to the site.
Dylan said on 18/May/09
Shredder - I know your question was to Rob and not me but my own estimation of those heights would be, Adam 6'2", Danny 5'9" and Chris 5'6.5" maybe 5'7", just my opinion.
the shredder said on 18/May/09
Rob , I don't care if you add these guys are not , but I do want you to tell me what you think these guys height range are roughly next to Seacrest ? ... Adam is the tall guy , Chris is the short guy , and Danny is the guy with glasses !

Leung said on 11/May/09
Rob, how do you justify 172cm for Seacrest? I think you are being overly generous. Tom Cruise and Ludacris are proper 172cm guys and they have both got Seacrest covered no sweat.
MD said on 11/May/09
Not the best photo, but here is Seacrest with Gwen Stefani (5'6") and Tony Kanal (directly to the left of Ryan) most often listed as 5'5":

Click Here

The photo really isn't even and Gwen is slouching (she does that, a lot, I've noticed), but even with his shoes, and I do think they are special shoes) he really only looks marginally taller than the both of them.
Dylan said on 10/May/09
I agree Leonari. He is well proportioned and whenever he appeared on television by himself I never contemplated him being short, until I saw him next to others and I was amazed how the majority of people towered over him. If he were to claim a realistic height it would not be so bad but to say he is 5'9" is ridiculous.
leonari said on 10/May/09
Seacrest is a prime example of a 5'7" guy with good proportions and slim built. He can look average standing by himself. Put him next to a 5'10" or 5'11" guy and reality is striking.
RisingForce said on 9/May/09
yeah leung, because if he's wearing lifts next to ben stiller or Akon then he's in trouble. he was struggling with 5-7 next to Akon. 5-7 flat.

gees-- i thought he looked 5'5 ish. Just compared to some people that go through the show...
Leung said on 5/May/09
I agree Dylan, Seacrest generally appears like a regular 5
Dylan said on 4/May/09
I don't think he does wear lifts. I think he is about 5'7" barefoot and the shoes he wears do not seem to give him much height advantage, unlike Tom Cruise who is probably about the same height as Seascrest. Cruise definately wears lifts, which is why he never seems to be dwarfed by people. If Seacrest were wearing lifts he would look taller than he does alongside everyone else, unless of course he is below 5'7"(which I doubt)and wears lifts.
James said on 1/May/09
This guy wears lifts and still gets owned by almost every person on American Idol. He may be 5'9 in lifts.

he can't be 5ft9. lowest he could be 5ft7.5(171cm).
C said on 30/Apr/09
Anyone catch Jamie Foxx on American Idol with Ryan? At one point his eye level was at the top of Ryan's head, almost dwarfing him. Then they changed positions, posture and camera angle and Jamie was only about 1-2" taller. I'm not sure which represented the best angle or posture, but it seemed like 5'9" Jamie was easily taller than Ryan by 2-4".

I found it ironic a few weeks back when Ryan made mention of Simon's lifts knowing damned well that he wears lifts, himself, to which he admitted a few years back on the show.
JTRoN said on 16/Apr/09
Phil, so Seacrest at 5'7.75 would mean he's about 5'8.5 or maybe 5'9 with normal shoes (does he wear lifts) when it comes to males he's shorter, when it comes to the females he's eye level or shorter, so does this mean all these girls are 5'6 and up all wearing heels? He moves around a lot, almost in a way that he seems intimated by others heights and probably embarrassed of his own. Anyway watching Idol the other day with my family I was thinking to myself how he seemed so short and then family members even noticed it and started joking about his height without me even saying anything. My point is, its noticeable that he's shorter then the contestants. I just can't see a 5'8 guy looking that short against people all the time, and the contestants can't all be tall, I'm sure their mostly of normal height as well yet towering over him.
Dylan said on 16/Apr/09
Rob - What would it take for you to lower Seacrest's height to 170cm?
Phil said on 16/Apr/09
"I noticed he's NEVER taller than anybody on the show"

Come on, you know that's not true. Out of the Top 13 contestants on the current season, Ryan is taller than all 5 of the girls (even Megan - you have to take heels into account) and 2 of the guys. That makes it a total of 7 out of 13 contestants. And most of the contestants are males this season! At the worst, Ryan will usually end up taller than 1/3 of the contestants. Last season, he was only taller than 3 girls and 1 guy in the Top 12. At his height, it's expected that half of the contestants will be taller and half will be shorter.
JTRoN said on 16/Apr/09
I can't believe he's listed as this height, never knew his height till checking this site but from watching American Idol I noticed he's NEVER taller than anybody on the show, I made it a point to pay attention everytime he's beside someone to see if he's taller, but he's always same height or shorter, even the females! seriously I had him down at 5'7 for sure, his shoes seemed suspicious to me too, theyre so long for his proportions, made me wonder if he's hiding lifts....I'm goin with a strong 5'7
RisingForce said on 15/Apr/09
Seacrest at 5'9" would make Ben Stiller 5'8.5". Seacrest looks like a weak 5'7" to me. He can look under 5'7" at times.
Tony said on 14/Apr/09

Heightgirl said on 8/Apr/09
Little Frankie Avalon was on idol tonight and next to Ryan he seemed only an inch shorter. Frankie was never much taller than 5f3 Annette Funicello back in the day and he may have shrunk now. Plus, Annette seemed a bit shorter than 5f3... say 5f1.5. Ryan might only be 5f4 barefoot and 5f5 with shoes on.
Phil said on 31/Mar/09
Overall, I have Matt at 5'10" and Danny at 5'7 1/2".
Phil said on 31/Mar/09
MD, assuming that Ryan does wear lifts: I'd put Matt at 5'11" and Danny at 5'8 1/2"-5'9".

Assuming that he doesn't wear lifts: I'd say Matt is 5'10" and Danny is 5'7 1/2"-5'8".

I'm not sure how much lifts would really add, though.
MD said on 30/Mar/09
Phil,

What do you have Matt and Danny at? Given that Ryan wears lifts so often, I can never really tell the height of the contestants.

about alexis grace: she looks like 4'11 to me. any ideas???
Phil said on 28/Mar/09
I don't think Kris reaches 5'6". The max I'd give him is 5'5 1/2", but I think he's a solid 5'5". Kris is a solid 2 inches shorter than Ryan.

I have Megan in the 5'5"-5'6" range, and then Lil and Allison are both 5'2".

anyways, my guess: kris allen is 5'5-5'6. becoz he does look shorter than ryan seacrest.
RisingForce said on 27/Mar/09
That's because Ryan is 5'7". No way is he close to 5'8". He can give illusions of being 5'6". In chunky shoes he was barely taller than 5'6"/5'6.5" Ben Stiller!!
Ashley said on 26/Mar/09
The other day when I watched AI I noticed how tall Adam was, and assuming that Ryan is 5'7" I estimated Adam's height to be 6'1" come to find out, Adam really is 6'1" so I think Ryan is 5'7"

He does not look 5'7 or 5'8 , I say he is between them !
RisingForce said on 20/Mar/09
I really think that 5'6.5" is possible for Seacrest as his shoes looked suspicious next to Ben Stiller and he looked 5-6ish next to Akon. But 5'7" flat makes the most sense.

I don't know how anyone can still think he's 5'8", I'd imagine that nobody believes his 5'9" claim.

Seacrest's 5'9" claim gets funnier and funnier. Ben Stiller is 5'6", maybe 5'6.5" on a good day.

Seacrest is closer to the camera and barely taller than Stiller.

But wait, it gets better. Seacrest's shoes had big heels on them.

Ryan really needs to be downgraded to 5'7".
Phil said on 8/Mar/09
I think 5'7" makes sense. He has a solid height difference over the short female contestants. Ryan looks to be similar in height to the shorter males and then you will have the taller males who have 5 or 6 inches over him. The taller contestants look 6'0"-6'1".

Look out for Danny Gokey, Kris Allen, and Jorge Nunez, who are the closest in height to Ryan. Lil Rounds and Megan Corkrey are probably good female comparisons.
Jim said on 7/Mar/09
5'7.75" would seem to be excessive for him. I am forced to American Idol on an alomst daily basis by the missus. If he's 5'7.75" then the average height of the American Idol contestant would be about 6'5", both boys and girls. I don't think that is very likely. He's 5'4" at best, and that's after a good night's sleep.

I've been saying it all along, but I'd even be willing to give him 5'6.5" just to be nice. The fact is that he's 5'6" and with lifts he can look 5'8".

I guessed 5'6". He looks incredibly tiny next to women when they're wearing heels. Even small women are eye-level with him in heels.

Seacrest is on the Grammys red carpet right now and every female artist is just towering over him. Yes they all are wearing heels, but Katy Perry, Taylor Swift were taller and even Miley Cirus was slightly taller. he should put some lifts on or something
---------------------------
For awards like the grammy's all the women wear 4 -5 inch heels. Why does he need to wear lifts? He's a big success without being tall, a bigger success than anyone who has posted on here. I bet you'd all love his job!
Leung said on 9/Feb/09
Yeah at the Grammy
Phil said on 9/Feb/09
"I'm pretty sure even tiny duffy stood taller than him at the grammys, and her heels weren't that big."

I think that would be saying that he's 5'4", and that can't be right.

"and even Miley Cirus was slightly taller"

If that's true, then it makes him 5'6" or 5'6 1/2".

I don't know where you got that extra .75 from Rob..you got a good eye but guys like Searest and Efron..you're just a tad off by their proportoins and the fact that Seacrest here wears nothing but dress shoes and thick sole shoes/boots...I have a hard time thinking Seacrest is even 5'7 when comparing him to the JOnas brothers where none of them are 5'8...everyone is fooled by their footware...They can be a weak 5'8 in their boots that they always wear though..
Aaron said on 31/Jan/09
Scanning the internet I came up with four heights for Ryan Seacrest, 5'9"(his own estimation), 5'8", 5'7" and 5'5", I would go with 5'7" personally, I actually wonder whether he is joking when he says he is 5'9" because a few years back there was a female contestant who remarked how incredibly short he was and that she would not date guys in his state if they were as short as him. He asked her how tall she was and she said 5'9" and he replied "I am 5'9" too" to which she laughed and said, "You're not." I honestly cannot believe he is serious when he says he is 5'9" in front of millions of viewers.
G*Money said on 31/Jan/09
I met Nick Lachey several year's back with his honey Jessica at a Cincinnati Reds Game...Nick is nowhere near 5'9" and Jessica's lucky if she's 5'3". Nick absolutely wears lifts and Jessica has never been seen in anything but spiked heels. There's nothing wrong with being short...just EMBRACE IT!

5-10 for lopez is correct.you will see my pic one day.
leonari said on 12/Nov/08
Lopez is 5'10 or close to it. He has weird bone structure. As if he was closer to 5'8". Don't get me wrong the man has one of the best physiques in hollywood these days, but if you think about it: He is probably as tall as SLY. But Stallone at his age was even more ripped and defined but he looked "thinner" cause his bones were thinner (watch Rocky 3 for proof). Therefore SLy in my opinion always taller than Lopez. RFS:Seacrest is not below 170 cm. That can be ruled out. A guy below 170 will probably always look short even when standing on his own. Seacrest when not near a taller guy can appear average cause he is above 170 cm and well proportioned. Not a big lift wearer if you ask me.
the shredder said on 12/Nov/08

He was shorter than ellenby an inch and she is reportedly 5 foot 7. He's short. In the emmys, he was about 12-15cm shorter than 5 foot 8 heidi klum with 12cm heels on. I would say 5 foot 6-7. No taller, he's a short guy.
RFS said on 9/Nov/08
5'9" with LIFTS
He can't be 5'7" if people rag on his height so much (same with Tom Cruise). 5'7" isn't bad. He's probably just under the 170cm mark.
Maria said on 1/Nov/08
At the TCA's Miley wore high heels that were at least 2 inches thick. She's 5'5". So that would have made her AT LEAST 5'7". But compared to David, she was either a lil bit shorter or the same height. So I'd say like 5'7".
Phil said on 12/Oct/08
I see three inches between them. It would really help if we can get a take on David A's height or Jason Castro's, because that might help out a bit.

I'll guess that Seacrest is in the 5'7"-5'7 1/2 range.

In the upcoming season, it would be ideal if there were average height females to compare him to.
Maxwell said on 8/Oct/08
OK-- he needs a downgrade. Really. See this video: Click Here

Sanjaya is not very tall, and this is easily seen from that part of the video where he's rehearsing with Jennifer Lopez. He has shoes with flat soles here.

In the actual performance, Sanjaya is in sneakers. Not thick-soled Nike ones, but regular Skechers type, so that would've given him about an inch more? But still, he looks about 4 inches taller than Seacrest. And it isn't far off that Seacrest wears lifts on AI.

David Cook - people say 5'10"-6'0"
Ramiele Malubay - she says she's 4'11", but she looks 4'8"-4'9"
Jason Castro - reported at 5'7", but I'd guess 5'8"-5'9"
Phil said on 10/Aug/08
Average guy is about 5'10.2" A girl being 5'3" is equivalent to a guy being 5'8" and a half. Now with that said, that means that 5'7" is definitely on the short side, as anything below 5'8.5" is probably short.
Anonymous fan said on 9/Aug/08
If he actually is 5'7 that's only 1 inch shorter then the average guy it's like a girl being 5'3 it's really not short it's basically average
Phil said on 9/Aug/08
"If your 5'7.5 do you just round it to 5'8?"

It should really be rounded down to 5'7". You can't say 5'8" because you don't reach 5'8" in any way, but you do reach 5'7". If it was at least x 3/4", then you can round up (x+1") because you are closer to the higher inch.

5'10"-5'11" seems to be the middle and/or average height from what I see as you go out. Anything under 5'8" is definitely considered short. 5'8" itself would blend in in certain situations, but come off as a bit short in others. 5'10" may not be "spectacular", but it is very respectable and not bad at all.

I'm thinking that Ryan is really 5'7" as he was 2 inches shorter than 5'9" Sanjaya. I don't see how you can get around that. Anyone know how tall Giuliana Rancic is? Ryan looks 1/2 inch taller than her.

Cook is only 5-9? He looks cloesr to 6-0 to me. Unless he wears some big footwear.

Archuleta looks 163-164 cm (and I'm glad he didn't win). Cook is definitely 177-179 cm in case Seacrest doesn't wear elevator shoes (which I don't believe, because it wouldn't make sense compared to some other contestants).

I think Seacrest is a weak 5'8'' guy for sure. And it's not a bad height at all, not even for a male.

met all three of them. archuletta is 5'4'' MAYBE. seacrest is 5'6-5'7. He is NOT 5'8''. Cook is in the 5'9'' range.

seacrest was the same height as blake lewis so david archuleta can't be 5'6.5" if blake is 5'7" thats insane.archie is more like 5'4- 5'5" tops

who cares if david archuleta is "short" he is gorgeous!!!! and he definately should have won. he is everything you would ever want in an idol. he's talented, funny, and humble. now cook might be a good singer but he's totally arogant. Go archie!!!!!!!!

He's not even 5'7.75", though.
Aimie said on 30/May/08
yeah right I don't think he is 5'9. That would make all idol contestants giants.
Stephanie said on 29/May/08
He looks short in comparison because the women are in heels and most of the boys/men on the show are taller than he is. But 5' 7.75" isn't bad at all.

yea , I don't think David Cook is over 6'0 ... Ive seen him listed 6'2 in some places which is B.S. !

6'0 Hayden Christensen towered over Seacrest here. Maybe 4.5 inches and Christensen is wearing running shoes and Seacrest is wearing dress shoes. They both seem straight at some point.

I say Cook is 5'11" to 6'0". I don't think he is over 6'0" though. So glad he won!
