I’ve never been super big about being this super buff kind of guy. First off, I'm only 5’8”. I’m not Chris Hemsworth who's like 6’4”, weighs over 200 pounds of pure muscle. That’s not me and it's gonna be impossible for me to get to that height or weight.

“So he [Tanner Buchana] goes, ‘Yeah I’m like five, nine — five, 10, what are you Xolo like 6-foot then?’”
“Xolo goes, ‘What, bro you are five, five! I’m five, 10, there’s no way, bro, you’re lying!’ And Tanner’s like, ‘No I went to the doctor and they said that,’” recalled [Jacob] Bertrand.

I could see his morning height around 5'7, but his late afternoon/early evening height must be closer to 5'6.25-5'6.5

Most celebs can get away with inflating their to the nearest inch (morning height), but any more than that will start to look ridiculous.
Seal said on 3/Jan/23
Yeah, I definitely think Tanner would be more than 145 pounds by now. I'd guess maybe more 155-160 by 2021, in season 4 he looked really muscular. Definitely looks taller than Peyton List, but shorter than Jacob Bertrand. Around 2 inches shorter than Xolo too.

Rob, how much would you say Tanner weighs? He looks more than 145.
Editor Rob
Has quite a muscular physique, so yeah I'd have guessed at least 150's.

Xolos comment makes no sense as we know xolo is five nine not five ten so that means tanner would be five four which is ridiculous. Five six minimum for tanner and xolo could be five eight and a half

@Another guy Looks solid 169 cm

Honestly I still think you could make a hard wager this guy is a flat 5’6 by the evening. I just can’t see him at 5’6.5,
In heels he’s still way short than xolo.
Seal said on 17/Sep/22
LOL. Yeah its 100% obvious Tanner's lying about his height. I mean no hate or offense to the guy but if you're gonna lie about your height at least make it somewhat believable. COnsidering Xolo claims 1 inch taller than how tall he really is, Tanner could've claimed 5'8" and then Xolo might've not said anything.
Sauce said on 14/Sep/22
Does this guy wears lifts? Because he does not looks 5.6 half he is looking like a 5.9 Click Here
Majestic Butterfly said on 12/Sep/22
definitely not 5’6 flat. atleast 5’6 1/2, average guess is way too low.
vY said on 1/Sep/22
Google says he’s 5’9. Absolutely ridiculous

Hey Rob, if Peyton. R List is 168. What do height magic do you reckon is going on in this photo?: Click Here
Editor Rob
Her legs do look a bit more spread than Tanner's, and heel height ain't that much different (given he has a cuban heel).

As for Peyton claiming 5ft 7 once, it doesn't add up with how she looked on the show, at most 5ft 6 from what I saw.
Prithvee said on 27/Jul/22
Hi Rob is 5ft 6.5 -7 average height or short? Thank you :)
Editor Rob
in the broad sense, it's heading into the short area.

Hey Big Rob!
Do you think he's done growing?
Editor Rob
I think he's long done
Leesheff1985 said on 12/Mar/22
His slender frame makes him seem much taller. I wouldn't have believed from the above photo he was only a quarter inch taller than my 5ft 6 1/4 it must be his slim frame
Samuele said on 1/Mar/22
I’m a little bit confusing,his height is 5’8 or 5’6?
Editor Rob
He claims 5ft 8 but I don't believe he's that tall barefoot.
khaled taban 5ft9 said on 6/Feb/22
@Rob- Why the upgrade? He's too old to grow now, and I belive he looked just a flat 5'6" since Cobra Kai days.
Editor Rob
Overall I think he has a change at 169cm.
Alanna said on 15/Jan/22
Looks at least 5’6.5. Average guess is too low.
Verge said on 9/Jan/22
He needs to be downgraded. He looks shorter than 5’6. 167cm max.
Seal said on 8/Jan/22
Yeah I always thought he was taller than 5ft 6. Good upgrade Rob. I guess he gives a shorter impression because he doesn't always have the best posture. But he definitely looked noticeably taller than Peyton. But he's definitely not over this listing
ChaosControl1 said on 2/Jan/22
Finally that much needed quarter inch is added. He does edge out Peyton List in season 4
Jusn said on 2/Jan/22
@Rob, after watching Cobra Kai Season 4 Tanner looks noticeably taller than Peyton List who you have listed as 5’6. I think an upgrade to 5’6.5 is needed.
Editor Rob
He can look around that range
CarloynG said on 18/Nov/21
Needs to be downgraded again. 5'6 flat was spot on, can sometimes even look less.
Leesheff85 said on 17/Nov/21
Rob do you reckon he looks 2.5 inches shorter than Ralph macchio? I just don't see that big a gap between them. I think he should be at least upgraded to 5ft 6 1/2 or close to 5ft 7 as he looks at most 2 inches shorter than ralph
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 18/Sep/21
He looks 5'6 in Cobra Kai. I think someone like Jonah Hill would edge him out. 5'6 flat imo.
Mekhled said on 4/Sep/21
I think 168
Brandao said on 2/Sep/21
ChaosControl said on 22/Jul/21
Yeah he edges out Peyton List who you have at 5’6. He’s definitely 5’6.5 at least in season 3 of Cobra Kai
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 22/Jul/21
There’s no way in hell he’s almost 3 inches shorter than Xolo Maridueña. Realistically Xolo is 5’8.5-5’8.75 and Tanner is 5’6.5. No clue why the average guess is so low
Leesheff1985 said on 30/Jun/21
Addison rae is listed 5ft 5 and 5ft 6 but looks several inches shorter than tanner in 3 inch heels. How can you explain this unless she is more 5ft 1 or 2
Sammy Lui said on 24/Jan/21
I think he's 168 cm at most because in a scene with Peyton Roi in season 3, he looks a centimeter shorter and they're wearing the same type of shoes.
Willy5'10 said on 23/Jan/21
Definitely 5’6 at tallest, I agree with this claim. At times on Cobra Kai he look 5’5 to me but I’d say he’s 5’5-5’6 range but 5’6 is a good listing
slim 6'1 said on 18/Jan/21
Got him at 5’6”
Marc Bardeau said on 6/Jan/21
Ooou a quarter of an inch update. I think its a good call! My natural guess was weak 5ft7 or close.
John Mickey said on 3/Jan/21
He claimed 5’8, do you believe his claim? The max I would think from Cobra Kai is 5’7
Editor Rob
5ft 8 seems too high compared to the other cast, even 5ft 7 I struggled to see
Keith 5'10 said on 1/Jan/21
Yeah, he is taller than Peyton Roi in Cobra Kai season 3
Editor Rob
he claimed 5ft 8 recently
Gugacion said on 14/Sep/20
Dont look so short. He look a solid 5'6 guy.
Alex1.1 said on 29/Aug/20
He makes 5.8ft Ralph look tall! So the 21 year old can only be about 5.6ft at or under.
Keith 5'10 said on 7/Jun/20
Hey Rob. Between him and Peyton Roi List, which one has more chances of being taller than 5'6"?
Editor Rob
That's tough to tell, generally I'd have said Tanner might have a greater chance of measuring a bit taller.
Logan M Barringer said on 31/May/19
@Rob is it possible he is still growing? Looked about 5'5" in first season of Cobra Kai. In the second season it looked like he had grown an inch or so.
Editor Rob
I doubt he's growing this year.
Sandy Cowell said on 29/May/18
That's a rather unusual name: Tanner! I've only known of the fictitious Elsie, and with her, Tanner was her surname!

This fellow Tanner Buchanan can have 5ft6.25!
