Haha thats kind of funny Rob, the guy in that photo claims 6'3.
Editor Rob: it's an optimistic claim, for sure!
wubablubadubdub said on 27/Aug/17
Rob, How tall do you think she is in these heels? And the height of the man next to her?

P.S., you notice how her legs also seem to be a good bit apart and how he's doing the one foot trick.

Editor Rob: they could be near 3 inch boots, so you'd expect her to be 6ft 1 in them, although probably standing no more than 6ft there.

On Americas got Talent she seems to tower over virtually everyone (even guys) in what appear to be 4" or 5" heels. I could see a legit strong 5'10". Pretty tall woman.
JAMES GORDON said on 30/Jul/17
I would say Will Smith's eyes were looking at her top of her head, making her about 5'10 if Will really is about 6'1. I'd say he's 6'0 now!
even said on 24/Jul/17
she said she's 5'10" , turns out she really is a legit 5'10" .

Her green eyes and her tall gorgeous...

Is she really 5'10 :scratching my head:
Click Here No heels,next to Will Smith at his peak height.

If Tyra Banks is 5' 10" everyone else to appear on AGT is a midget. She is probably 6' 4".
Ky said on 23/Apr/17
I watched an old interveiw of her on YouTube and they had described her at 5'11.
Allie said on 5/Feb/17
@J.Lee it was a VSFS back in the early 2000s or late 1990s. It listed Tyra's height as 5'9.
Anonymous said on 10/Dec/16
Rob do you think Tyra could be 1.79? Or is she already in the stage of loss of height?
Editor Rob: she might not have lost more than a nickle's width of height.
J.Lee said on 2/Aug/16
Allie, which episode?
Allie said on 1/Aug/16
Yep I just heard Tyra claim 5'9 on her show. Will have to find the video though.
Rebelka said on 30/Jul/16
Tyra Banks is a legitimate 1.78 ! The funny thing is that Tyra is larger than many models listed have 1.78 and even 1.80 as it can kkkkks .

It has more than 1.78 in comparison with other models of the same height is higher, must be 1.80.

Tayra with girls from American's nex top model, Mame & Lacey from cycle 22, both girls are 5.8, Raina cycle 14 her height is 5.9, and laura cycle 18 her height is 5.10? she is looks 5.9 and not taller then that
Lee said on 17/Oct/15
Why are all these little 10-12 year old girls saying they are nearly six foot tall. I highly doubt any are over five foot. Anyway tyra looks 5'10 to me and can look 6'2 in a nice pair of platforms
Allie said on 10/Oct/15
Hm, oddly enough, in the 2001 VSFS, Tyra was interviewed and they put her height down as 5'9. Then said that she's 26 years old. But they gave Mark's future wife Rhea Durham, the height of 5'11 despite being listed as 5'9 now.

she is 177-178cm , over 5.10
M said on 10/Aug/15
I would say she is 1.75m (Kurkova is 1.77m max, comaparing to Toni Garrn who is rue 6' or 1.83m), but because she has very strong bones it gives expression like she is taller then this.
J.Lee said on 1/Aug/15
Rob, could you see Tyra being 5 ft 10.25? I don't see how she's an inch shorter than Rebecca. Also, Allie says 5 ft 10.5 max
Allie said on 21/Jul/15
@J.Lee - she does, but tbh, I don't think Rebecca R is the full 5'11 she claims. I'd say that Tyra max is 5'10.5 or 5'10.25. In identical heels and near identical pose, she looked less or around an inch shorter than 5'11 KK. So yeah.
J.Lee said on 16/Jul/15
Rob what do you think about the pics with Tyra next to Rebecca?
J.Lee said on 15/Jul/15

We don't care how tall you all are stop lying y'all no y'all not that tall. This is about Tyra's height.
Skye said on 23/Apr/15
Spot on. She was still taller than Blake Lively in GG and looked taller than Klum even in I believe it was sneakers on so I guess anything under 5'9 is out of the question.
Jewel said on 29/Dec/14
saw her on an episode of life in the fab lane with Kimora Lee who was bare feet and tyra in a relaxed jeans and t with flat shoes. they looked very very close in height. so yes maybe Tyra is about 5.11 out of bed.

And for Wendy not too sure. Maybe 5.11 was in her prime.
Tyler said on 29/Dec/14
I'm a very tall person, but I am also somewhat short. I'm 5 feet, nine and a half inches tall, 130 kilos, medium build, skinny muscles, I can do about 28 pushups when I'm not dehydrated, but I take in about 300 calories every 4 hours and I drink too much soda. I'm typically shorter than a lot of actresses but not by a whole lot. I doubt anyone would notice a difference in height between me and Banks if she took off her shoes and stood back-to-back against me... Just saying
J.Lee said on 10/Dec/14
Rob can you make a height listing for Wendy Williams? She's supposed to be very tall
[Editor Rob: she claims 5ft 11 although I'm not sure she's quite that tall.]
Rose said on 18/Sep/14

Tyra could be between 178-179cm. Maybe 180cm out of bed. Also, she is very attractive, better than those skinny, shapeless models now.

5 ft 10.25 possible or is 5 ft 10 more likely?

To all girls here complaining about being too tall, let me tell you the following:if you are really between 5'7 and 6' like most of you said,FIRST you will always find men taller than you almost everywhere, it's only if you are 6'3+ that you may be too tall for many persons, SECOND, a genuine man wouldn't care if he's several inches shorter or taller than you and neither should you,THIRD please let's speak about Tyra's height not yours.
Rob,is there a chance for 5'10.25?I think she's rounding down a little.
Natasha said on 2/Feb/14
This is about Tyra's height. We really don't care how tall you guys are. Irrelevant!

I've only just turned 14 and I'm 6ft. I am in year 9 and the tallest girl in the whole of my school including teachers, just like you. Yeah, that's my shoe size aswell:3, you're lucky if you get complimented because all I ever got was bullied but, still remember you are beautiful. And I bet you could be a model when you are older!
skipper said on 12/Dec/13
she's tall enough to be beautiful but short enough to kind..

[Editor Rob: could be close to that mark]
SAK said on 7/Aug/13
Stop talking about height, this tyras page.

Tyra on antm has many times said she is 5f10. On occasions will take off her shoes to do a comparison when she a contestant is lying about there height.
Yasemin said on 29/Jul/13
I'm 14 and 5'11. I love looking up to really tall girls because they are all so beautiful. It's sooooo hard to find shoes my size because I'm size 41. Since I live I'm Asia, pretty much every girl I know is 5'6 or shorter and I'm the tallest girl in my high school. It also sucks that there are only about 3 guys taller than me in the whole school. But I still love being tall and all of the compliments :D I really badly want to be a model when I grow up
Cool dude said on 18/Jun/13
everybody stop lying about your height i know not all of you just happen to be 12 or 15 and 5'10 so just stop yall are not that tall so get back on topic on tyra banks height not your height we don't care how tall you all are

@Nikki maybe you'll stop growing cos you may be at the end of puberty. It's completely possible if you are that tall at your age and many girls start puberty very early and finish very early.
Nikki said on 27/Feb/13
I'm 13 and I'm 5'8 and a quarter. Have been for a while now. At times I do hate my height, but I try to see the good sides in it. Like looking better in shorts and different kinds of pants because it shows off your legs(: I look at Tyra as an inspiration and she shows me not to be afraid of my height and to embrace it.
Tee said on 27/Jan/13
Im 12 and im 5"7/8
My friends are smaller than me but id love to become a model someday id try to push on a bit more to 5"10!
SAK said on 13/Jan/13
Tyra has referenced her height quite a few times on Americas next top model. And uses herself as comparison when she feels a candidate is lying about her height. She always says 5f10/178cm.
barney said on 22/Oct/12
count yourself lucky maddie at twelve i was 5ft8! being tall is the best thing to ever happen to me! I love tyra and she embraces her height and so should you!
Maddie said on 20/Oct/12
so I am almost 12 and just shy of 5'5 D: I absolutely HATE being tall because its so hard to gain weight anyway. I weight like 100 pounds and that's well pretty thin for my height. Im taller than everyone in my grade and its not easy. I hate towering over people's greesy hair and dandruff -.- I hate all the remarks about it, too. Im taller than one teacher (shes pretty short though) teachers treats me like their friend. its not easy being tall especially when you're a kid I don't know why anybody would want to be tall, I hate it :(
Citation said on 4/Oct/12
People here need to stop being so narcissistic and get back on topic about Tyra's height. I just adore Tyra's body and proportions in the photo above, she's curvy yet lean. Tyra's height is just perfect for a fashion model's. 5'10 is always the best height to be at in the fashion world.
katalina said on 27/Sep/12
Im 15 and im rail thin and im 6 foot. Thats crazy!!! And its weired because my body is short but my legs are extra longgggggg.
barney said on 17/Sep/12
I've always been tall for my age and I love it, I was heads taller than everyone, i've always been curvy but I want to loose weight, i'm only 14 and I'm cms of 6ft everyone says I should model becuase I could have a slightly curvier body than tyra and i love her! but is it too soon to try to lose weight to be a model? adn is it true about needing small boobs i have average i guess lol i'm mixed race (black and white) and a little lighter than tyra with brown eyes and black hair I would love to be a model!
Anna said on 28/Aug/12

I'm 14 and I'm 5'9" in a half and I hate it. Everyone I know is shorter like 5'7" and lower and I've always wanted to be shorter. People say I should be a model and I'm just like eh whatever.
Olivia May said on 19/Aug/12
I'm 12 and I've just hit 5'10 and 1/2 I really want to be a model but don't want to grow anymore because I'm scared there won't be any good looking guys taller than me when I'm older ahahaahahhahaahha xxx
Missy B said on 9/Aug/12
Last time I checked I was 5 ft 8... I think I'm 5 ft 9 now... And I'm 15 ! Everybody keeps telling me how tall I am and I hate it ! & They say that I should be a super model... especially that I have a body like Tyra's here... But I don't want to ! Even My sister who's way older than me got an offer to be a super model when she was 22 ( she was in Paris ) . But she refused , she took it as a compliment though... Now , I'm just as tall as her... probably taller ! :'(
Dallas said on 8/Aug/12

Everybody here is talikng about their heigh so I'll leave mine. I hate it, because when I was little everybody said I would be like 5'8 or more and now I'm 16 and I'm 5'3 or LESS... I'm not snob or whatever, but I know I have a beautiful face and normal proporcions on my body, but my heigh just doesn't help ugh... By the way, I think Tyra is 5'9 tall (and she is actually gorgeous which is not a big new xD )(:
Sara said on 12/Feb/12
I'm 5'4 I think xD (1,61 m) and when I was toung everybody thought I would grow a lot, but now I'm 16 and they say I'm small xD omg :c
If a petit model is a 5'7 tall so I'm a petit petit petit girl xD
I'd love to be taller, but not taller as my boyfriend xDDD

I'm around 5'8 and 18, and I get really sad when I see girls complaining about their height :/

Being tall is so beautiful, nothing against the short girls, but I'd love to be taller
Bethhh said on 30/Jan/12
i'm 13 and i'm 5'8". at the moment im not sure whether I like my height because most of my friends are smaller than me and all the boys in my year are smaller than me too. about 2 of my friends are the same height as me and i feel that some of the boys may be catching up to my height. my mum says i probably will grow to about 5'11" which will be a great height!:)

amy. said on 30/Dec/11
jay. thanks you make me feel so much better but still no matter what i want to be a model. thanks so much though.. self esteem boosted :)
Jayy said on 28/Dec/11
heheheh since everyone is talking about their height i will, too (:
to amyy - im 5 ft 2, too (: and asian . don't worry you'll grow tall. you're just a late grower (: dont worry about it
so yeah im 5 ft 2 and ive been barely growing. i think in a year im starting to only grow 1 or 2 cm . i used to cry and be depressed about it. I wanted to eat pills, get hormone shots, do ANYTHING to be tall.
now - i got mature. got older. most of my tiny height goes to my legs. so i have regular sized legs that wear regular sized jeans. my torso is short but i actually like it cause i get to wear crop top that fit perfectly like shirts, and who knew perfect sized crop tops would look good? im an hourglass figure and guess what? i am glad im not tall like my other tall friends! i know tat by the time im an adult, i will have definitely reached 5 ft 4. my mom is 5 5 and my dad is 5 8. im glad im short and soon to be average because i wear heels and not look freakish, im considered skinny, i can wear any clothes i want and look great. so i stopped caring about my height
all though i AM always going to be jealous of models because they get their own makeup artists. but to be honest, who wants to get addicted to makeup? its like poison and ruins your skin if you use it for years.
amy. said on 28/Dec/11
i love how tyra is so tall and can show her self off without losing the confidence. it does however make me quite sad cos im 13,5"2 and apparently im perfect model material if i weren't so short. worst part is that my whole family is quite tall considering we're asian. if my 5 year old sister continues growing at her rate she'll be taller than me by the time she's 8.dream crushed :(
Al said on 27/Dec/11
I saw Tyra at the grove a few years ago and she looked like she was about 6' to 6'1". I think she says she 5'10" cause she doesn't want to be considered a large lady but she is very tall.
Anna said on 25/Dec/11
Wtf? I would LOVE to be 5'9 - 5'11. I'm 15 and 5'2 and believe me it SUX because most girls here are 5,5 and up.
Adrianne said on 19/Dec/11
I'm 5"4 and I hate it.
If i were to hang out with my friends everyday they'd make me look even taller.

Lol at all the fake accounts posting rubbish no one gives a crap about. Do you think Tyra reads this?
lauren0221 said on 17/Nov/11
im 14 and 5"3 which is very short and when people complain about being tall it makes me mad because i wish i was tall and beautiful, and i dont think i will grow anymore. so be glad your tall.
truth said on 14/Nov/11
now now...I think shes 5ft9 max...evening height of course..she scrapes 5ft10 in the morning...but thats very tall for a woman nontheless.
SAK said on 12/Nov/11
Why is no one actually talking about Tyra.

If you girls wanna talk about your own height, then go to general height page.

But I will say that if you are tall girl, there is nothing wrong with that, its a
can easily be seen as an advantage and look desirable. The same cannot be said for short guys who just look plain bad, and desirable unless there rich or famous.

Anyways, back to Tyra, firstly she is fit and has a great body. She can often be seen as 5ft11, because she wears huge heels and is kinda big, so has a big presence. But Tyra herself has said shes 5ft10 on many occasions, which is v.honest, which cannot be said for majority of celebs in regards to there height.
Robia said on 26/Oct/11
5"10, 15, most firends are 5'6 and under..... its alright being tall but sometimes you just wanna be small so that you can hide from stuff.
Dani said on 19/Oct/11
@xxxsarahhyyy-I'm GLAD that u LOVE ur HEIGHT...but for me it was a BURDEN FOR A FEW REASONS:1. Unlike the girl who stated "her whole family is tall-MINE WAS NOT 2. Growing Pains-IT ACTUALLY HURT! 3. STRETCH MARKS for growing tall SO FAST! 4. I lived in an URBAN environment and unlike others I could never just blend into the crowd, I was ALWAYS A VISIBLE TARGET 5. Back then Tyra's age-there were hardly any TALL SIZES. My PANTS WERE ALWAYS SHORT or HANDMADE. When "they" made me play b-ball, I got turned around and gave the other team points, when I attempted runway modelling I almost fell off the stage. (: I LOVE SHORT MEN! DONT CALL PEOPLE STUPID IF U DONT KNOW WHAT THEY R GOING THRU! It makes U SEEM stupid! ALSO, 2 THE PERSON WHO WANTED PICS AS PROOF! Like Tyra-I was almost my full height at 14- I was 5'8, I'm 5'9.5 and war 9-9.5 shoes, I prayed hard for my FEET to stop growing and they did! ANYWAY...JUST WANTED TO ADD MY TAKE TO IT. My SON WAS 6' BY 12 AND 6'2 BY 13. We both agree that people staring at us ALL THE TIME IS RUDE AND A STRANGE TO US! 1 last thing...MEN TREAT PETITE WOMEN LIKE DOLLS-OPEN DOORS FOR THEM ETC...when they see me SOMETIMES THEY DO A 2ND TAKE AND SEEM TO ACT LIKE- you're as big (OR BIGGER) as I am-open your own door. But REAL MEN still open it or help with whatever. Women of all heights, STILL can like to be PAMPERED LIKE THE LITTLE GIRL INSIDE OR LOVE TO BE HONORED LIKE A PRINCESS! I REALLY LIKE SHORT MEN!
xxxsarahyyy said on 19/Oct/11 stupid can you be if u think that being tall sucks!its the best thing 180cm...thats like 5'10' or 5'11'...i wear huge heels all the time and i do modeling....i have a handsome tall boyfriend....being tall is the best thing everrr!!!
Zoë said on 19/Oct/11
why can't you weare heels if you're 5'10"? I am 5'10" and I always wear my heels. I just love it. yes I am taller then the rest of the school but it's oke. at first everybody was like: why are you wearing heels? you are already tall? but I was like: yeah that's true but I just love it. and tall people can also wear heels. now everybody thinks it is cool. and it makes you look sexy :) so girls don't doub about it just wear that heels :) (btw I am 16)
Faye said on 17/Oct/11
OMG im 5"10 And i LOVE my height, i get compliimetns all the time and i still love wearing heels!!!! People always tell me i should be a model! And i bet they say that to you to!EMBRACE YOUR HEIGHT GURL! Because come on, whats more elegant, stubby and 5"1 or tall with long legs and 5"9 ? exxacctly! People always say they want to be tall so your LUCKY ;) but for me height runs in my family (My mum - 5"10 My dad- 6"2 my brother - 6"4) Yuppp

tink said on 8/Oct/11
maybe people just want to state their height to feel better? I wouldnt know because im not them..thats just what i think. im 14 and i am 5' sucks because im extremely skinny (112 lbs) and every boy in my school is shorter than me...also i like to wear heels but i cant in school because everyone will laugh at me!!!! though whenerver i feel upset i think of tyra and how she is 5'10 and still rocks her heels!!!!
johno said on 7/Oct/11
- Whats with the stating heights? Is it some sort of joke?
Shannon said on 5/Oct/11
I'm 13 and Im 5'11, when I grew tall I got quite surprised because it didnt run through my family all my family are basically all small. Anyway I started first year 2 years ago. I got teased a lot about my height I got called 'Green Giant' but there's two guys in my class so I didn't feel as lonely and tall there 13 and there 6'4 and there both good looking guys. So I wish and I will personally try to lose a lot of weight and become slim enough to become a model and look back at the people on high school and stuff it in there faces and say '**** you mother ****ers' and they would be so jealous and me and Mackenzie will live happily ever after(:!
Bang said on 1/Oct/11
I'm 16 & Am 5'9 too...I used to hate being tall earlier but I realised that its actually fun, all my friends wish they were tall so Why wish you were short ?? If kimora(who is 6ft) can wear heels, so can you sweetie just boost your confidence (:

If you girls are the heights you are claiming, which I doubt, then show us a pic.
Wide not tall said on 4/Sep/11
Tanisha, are you really 5'11, if so, show us a pic. If you are, then it is very likely due to hormone ladened foods. Animals are given a steroid type hormone to get fattened before they are butchered, and its also causing some people to grow fast and it will cause problems later on.
Tanisha said on 3/Sep/11
I'm Tanisha, 14 years old and I'm 5'11. I really don't like being tall it is horrible, and because no one is really tall in my family(well my mum isn't, or my dad or grandparents). So I went to the hospital about it and they took sone blood tests and stuff and they said there was not a reason I'm tall, I just am, but they said I've probably reached my height limit. I really hope I have because I don't want to grow any more:(
Megan said on 3/Sep/11
Hi, Im 12 about to be 13, and im 5'9 and a bit, my legs are probably the longest part on my body, im in my secondyear of highschool now, but in my first year i absolutle hated my height, id hate seeing pictures of me with my friends, always because i wud be the 1 who towers over everybody because i was always about 5ft taller than everybody, i also look about 4 years older than everybody else. But now, im absolutley l0ving my height, i dont care if i tower over everybody, i guess its an advantage in some ways, and a disadvantage in another, BUT all of u girls who r so tall that you stand out, dontbe ashamedof it, trust me, its brilliant, and who knows, some of us might even end up being models when we are older, we just have to wait for the right time ;) <3

Mona said on 27/Aug/11
I'm 11 and 5 ft 7 and at first I hated being tall but I learned to embrace my height you just have to love who you are tall or short because everyone is beautiful And think about this way if ur tall you stand out of the crowd instead of blending in I love myself and my height.

Hi. I'm 12 years old and I am 5.11 feet tall. I get made fun of a lot, but I learned how to shut them up and how to love my height. all my friends are 5.2 at average. sometimes I feel like I don't fit in, but sometimes not fitting in is a good thing. isnt it? I learned to love being this tall just this year. my whole life has been very difficult before and thank god that's over.

Im 14 and 5'11. Im proud of my height and being tall is beautiful,dont worry about what others think because they're really self concious about themselves.
kyra said on 12/Aug/11
Shruti dont feel self concious about your height im 5'9" and people always stare at me especially when i wear heels and after i put them on im almost 6'1" the way that i get through it is by pretending like im a model and that makes me feel less shy and a lot more glamorous
shruti mathur said on 9/Aug/11
hi ,i am from INDIA an i am 19 , and my height is 5 f.9inch. and i really love carring heals but i cant b'coz of my height. actually i feel a bit embarresed as the people keep staring me, and start chating about my height.
Daphne said on 8/Aug/11
I see that you have different opinions about your height. Rosie, I am 13-14 and I am 5'4" and believe me all my friends are shorter than me, except the one who is a 14 years old girl and she is 6'2" !!! But I am also afraid of wearing high heels because they can make me look weird. Lucy you can be 5'10" because as my pedetrician said to me, I will be 5'7 1/2" by the height of 5'4" that I am now at the age of 14. Don't worry. ;)
Lucy said on 7/Aug/11
well, right now i just turned 12 and a half, and am currently 5'7". I really want to be 5' 10"...... is this still a possible reality for me , or should i just give up on it?
Katie said on 30/Jul/11
I'm 16, and I'm 5'11 & a half. Which is very tall for my age, and I am very self conscious about it. I just hope I don't get taller :/
Anon said on 27/Jul/11
GIRLS: If you are tall and self conscious about it, you might as well STOP caring about what people think of you right now. You can't control how tall you are/how tall you will be, so learn to love it. I'm 19, 6 ft, and I love wearing heels when I go out. People may give you **** for it (story of my life?) but just throw them the finger :)
SAK said on 17/Jul/11
How about talking about Tyra's height as well

she used her height(5ft10) to measure girls who say they are taller then they actually are on ANTM

Bree said on 2/Jun/11
If you want to wear high heels, rock it. Some of the most beautiful women in the world are over 6'. My best friend is 5'11" and she rocks 4" heels daily. Don't be afraid to look fierce.
alex said on 31/May/11
im 15 and i am 5'11 and it somtimes freaks me out cause im starting to think mabye i should start wearing heals but then i think wow i already get compared to my friend everyday about my height why make it an even bigger probblem??? so should i wear heals???? (i think yes and i think no)...ahhhh what should i do?!?!?!?
SAK said on 22/May/11
Y all the posts here talking about how they tall they are, isn't this Tyra's page.

Sometimes it does seem Tyra mightbe close to 5ft11, however it's probably because she wears pretty high heels all the time.
Rose said on 16/May/11
I am 13 and I'm 5'3. I'm okay with my height 'cause that doesn't make me look shorter than my friends. But I'm afraid to wear heels infront of them 'cause I think they will make me look taller than others and maybe taller than my crush. Which'll be weird . Someone help me! What should I do?
burger said on 8/May/11
5'10,5" is possible

gabs said on 27/Apr/11
I am 12 and i am 5'10 or 5'10 and a half! whenever i tell people i am 12 they are always surprised because they think i am way older. personally i dont really like being tall i wish i was like 5'6 and when i grow up i wanted to be like 5'8. its really annoying though because i am taller than most people in my grade and even most adults! it really gets to me because whenever im around people im always comparing their heights.
Emma said on 9/Apr/11
Tyra is 5'10/178 cm.
I'm 177 cm (5'9 ½). I've always been tall and always disliked it, but now I'm getting more comfortable with my height. But I went to my school nurse here the other day and we looked at a protocol and apperently I grew from 5'2 ½ to 5'9 within 2 years!! If u ask me that's just crazy haha. But to the point. It's just feels like I keep growing taller and taller and I don't want to be taller then I'm already am, because it feels like I'm going to be taller then every guy in the whole entire woorld!!! (-overdrifting just a liiiittle bit but yeah..) I wanna be like 5'9 :/
Kiwi said on 9/Apr/11
I am 12 and 5'5 and I went to the doctors and they said I was going to be 5'10 when I grow up. I love being tall and I am skinny too. I am thinking of becoming a model when I grow up.

i hope to be tall like tyra! {:

i love being tall! although, a lot of people in my grade(mostly guys) are getting taller than me now, when a few years ago, i was WAAAY taller than them,!
SAK said on 28/Mar/11
The photo of Tyra with the Kardashians, just goes to show how tall she really, 5ft10 for a female is very tall, equivalent to a 6ft3/4 male.
john said on 15/Mar/11
rob, how could she be only 5'10 in this picture. Click Here how tall do you think khloe kardashian is, she looks way over that and they are all wearing the same heels(in the show video)??

[Editor Rob: I think she's the height she claims, but maybe the taller Kardashian isn't quite the height she claims?]

Tyra is 5'10. I am 5'7 and just turning 15 tomorrow. I love being tall! I am taller than my 17 year old boyfriend. (:
SAK said on 23/Feb/11
She has said many times on Americas next top model that she is 5ft10, but she could easily be 5ft9.5 due usual rounding up, but I would not be surprised if she is a solid 5ft10/178cm.
natasha said on 3/Jan/11
She is something of 5'9.5" to be accurate...coz in her biography it was mentioned that she grew upto 5'9" at age 15...after that i don't think she could grow very tall...coz she was more keen on gaining weight after that..
So weird..
Anyway..I have noticed one thing..she is tall thats why her legs look that long..
I personally feel...her legs are "leggy" for 5'7" or 5'8" at max..not for 5'10"..
anyway..I LOVVVVVEEEEE Tyra..
She is my role model
Fred said on 26/Dec/10
im 7.0.. and my girlfriend is 6.1 so, its really nice that she is that tall =)
Matthieus said on 12/Nov/10
Yeah, Im pretty sure Tyra is in between 5'9'' and 5'10''. I think she's mentioned her height quite a few times and she reached her full height early on. I would've thought it's harder to lie about your height when you're a supermodel like Tyra as models surely have measurements for bookings, etc. However, I know agencies will sometimes add an inch or two in writing for a model's benefit. Or so I've read.
I think it's refreshing Tyra embraces her height and doesn't pretend to be shorter.
Groove Champion said on 1/Oct/07
I am also watching that Today show and agree with heels being 3-4", but didn't know Lauer's height. Given 5'10" for him and 5'8" (just looked it up) for Al Roker, I agree with 6'1"or even 6'2" possibly. Very weird given how she looked like an adult with children in comparison. I am a 6'2" guy (about 230lb) and can't imagine how I'd look on TV! I mean you see pictures of yourself with friends of that height, but on TV she looked like she could crush them all in her palm! Hahhaha! ;-) Either way, 5'10" is baloney for her (assuming that since Roker and Lauer's are close that they are right). Oh, and being tall is definitely not a plus all the time. :)
Beth said on 1/Oct/07
Well, I'm watching the today show and Tyra is standing beside Matt Lauer outside. She's in about 3 inch heels. He officially says he's 5'11" and I gotta tell you there's no way Tyra is 5'10" (I love her by the way) and he is 5'11" heels or no hells he comes up to her chin! I'm not sure if you guys have noticed or not but Tyra's knees are the kind that bend backwards (if that makes sense) and she's a little knobby kneed. I'll bet if she stood up straight and didn't slump she'd definitely be 5'11". Hey I'm jealous I'm only 5'1" I'd kill to be that tall!!!!
Cpt Crunch said on 28/Sep/07
Why does a woman have to be 6" taller than average to be a model? Men only have to be about 3" taller than average to be a model and there are more men that are above average than women who are above average. The Bell curves are different.
myspace top model said on 20/Sep/07
tyra looks like she could be 6'1... but she is 5'10. understand that she always wears heels, which makes her look taller.. so those heels could have made her taller than that one girl on ANTM.
Anonymous said on 15/Sep/07
She was singing that rap song she made when she was 13 and in that song she said she was 5'9". Meaning she was 5'9" at 13.
myspace celebrity said on 10/Sep/07
i have heard her state that she was 5'9 on ANTM, and then 5'10 on another episode of ANTM. either way she look like 5'10.

But I was watching ANTM, Cycle 6, and she appeared to be taller than Sara, who is 6'1". Unless it was just a camera trick, but it seemed this way in several episodes from this cycle.

Blue eyed girl said on 27/Aug/07
UMMM-I have always thought of her as 5"11. There is just a certain look when people get that tall-and she has it. I am 5"9 ish-5"10 in the morning-and I can spot someone my height-and she is about an inch taller than me.

Spoke to her a couple years ago (after a fashion show) we're the same hight, I'm 5' 9 3/4'' we had no shoes. Alors voila.
writercab said on 18/Aug/07
I study height because most celebrities lie so much about their height it's crazy. I learned that your height fluctuates as much as an inch from morning to night from all that weight on your joints. It's so easy to say one will lie about their height in Hollywood, because they do. But, some of these celebrities really don't know exactly and they just go with the best reasonable height. But, the trouble surface when they stand beside someone else with their said height. Tyra said she was 5'9, 5'10 and 5'11 right, lets put her in the middle. 5'10 is PERFECT!
Legs said on 13/Aug/07
in an ANTM episode, she did a song rap where she said "I'm a 5'9 model with no silicone." It was first or second cycle. I am tall so "I am not a short hater" Plus Gisele is actually 5'9.5- 5'10 in real life she just says she 5'11

mO said on 3/Aug/07
I THINK SHES 5'11 because when giselle was on there who is 5'11 and they were standing up both had heels on, they were the same height, so I dont think shes 5'10 anymore.

Yeah, Tyra looks about 5'10 or 5'11 and with her shoes she's about 6'. I have seen her on her show when she had no heels on and she was much taller than the girls from Danity Kane ( when they had tall heels on) Tall is beautiful!
A Fan said on 19/Jun/07
Yeah,Tyra looks about 5'10 or 5'11. I was watching her show and she was standing next to Danity Kane and she looked very tall compared to the other girls when Tyra didn't have heels on and Danity Kane members did! It's a true beauty to be tall!

So that makes Keibler 5-9.

[Editor Rob: yes, banks does look taller, although tyra's heel style looks bigger. Banks could be the one who is 179cm and kiebler might be rounding up.]

Rob, check out this youtube clip. Tyra Banks (in high heels) with 5'11" Stacy Keibler (also in high heels);
Click Here
At around the 3 minute mark, they stand next to each other and Tyra is actually taller by an inch it looks like. Tyra also looked taller when Stacy initially came out, but that's not on this clip.
aleiah said on 4/May/07
Are you kidding tyra banks is definely not 5'8,5'9,She is absolutely 5'10 no doubt
Al said on 1/May/07
I also saw her at the Daytime Emmy's and she looked almost the same height as me with heels on (6'1).

Hey Brooke, at least the other people that criticized Tyra actually contributed to her HEIGHT discussion. I believe right above the box where you put your name it says "Add a comment about their HEIGHT." This is, not You're at the wrong site.
Melissa said on 20/Apr/07
I went to the Daytime Emmy's and met her.. I'm 5'9 and she seemed A LOT taller than me, I'd say 6' but she did have heals on, so who knows. I'm a huge fan, but she seemed kinda rude.
Anonymous said on 5/Apr/07
On her show when Flavour Flav was a guest, she goes on a date with him and "raps" that she's 5ft 9 ...maybe nothing rhymed with 5ft 10.
Brooke said on 29/Mar/07
Karl wrote on here that Tyra's show is a joke and I totally agree, in almost
every show she either talks about America's Next top model this or I was a supermodel that. Her audience even seems like they have been told to react to things a certain way or to go along with anything Tyra tells them. She says she is down to earth and stuff but i THINK YOU ARE RIGHT she's a self important ass.

I'm a woman who stands exactly six feet tall barefoot. For most of my life I tried to make myself look shorter. Now, I wear heels any chance I can. Tyra who?
footballed28 said on 26/Feb/07
well murko half an inch is half an inch you big deal but when a bald guy who is exactly 6'0 is standing right next to a bald guy 6'0 1/2 you can see the height difference folks if you want to be taller start growing your hair like Marge Simpson

No way tyra banks is 5 ft 10 i mean if you look @ youtube for Fresh Prince - Blood Is Thicker Than Mud you can see her and will smith from the side, will should be 1.91m and even if he has sneakers on it doesnt matter she is listed to tall or will has listed to small:P
footballed28 said on 6/Feb/07
it is unfair to say women "never" exaggerate their height...some do and some dont...just like men. I roomed with a guy in college who always claimed to be 6'1 even tho his exact height is 6'1 2/ closer to 6'2..there are people who think they can get away with rounding up/down their height slightly and wont go noticed...well, I have really sharp eyes and can detect the slightest exaggeration
Karl said on 6/Feb/07
she's definitely 5' 10". Her talk show is a joke I must say, she's such a pompous, self important ass with some serious issues!

On a recent episode of Tyra's talk show, she showed a copy of her old modeling license. Her height was listed as 5'10".

I always knew that Tyra was tall but I belive she is way taller than 5'10". I always thought that she was 6'.
Derek said on 9/Dec/06
She's a solid 6'1" in heels, so 5'10" barefoot is reasonable.
~Nate~ said on 7/Dec/06
LOL Tyra towers over EVERY woman and a lot of men she stands next to so 5'8-5'9 is most defnitely out of the question I'd say 5'10 bare minimum barefoot. She towered over 5'8-5'9 Mariah at the Oprah gig as well as Beyonce and Mary J Blige.

[Editor Rob: she once said 6 foot...]
fused said on 17/Nov/06
In the second season of her show, she recited a rap she wrote in the ninth grade (which puts her at about 14-15). One of the lines was "I'm 5'9"". There's no way she's shorter than that. I even have a hard time believing she's only 5'10" like she says because she looks a lot taller than other women that height while wearing the same sized heels.
RP said on 1/Nov/06
Tyra is 5'10. On her show she stood next in heels to Brooke Hogan who was the same height as her (in heels). Tyra asked how tall Brooke was who answered "5'11! You?" she answered: "I'm 5'10. Beaten by an inch!"
Ty said on 15/Oct/06
She said she was 5'10 on the tyra banks show.
Come on said on 13/Oct/06
Tyra said she was 5'8 in the 8th grade (when she started to model)... that puts her at the age of 14. obviously she grew between 14 and 21. So I totaly belive she's all of 5'10 now.
shygirl said on 3/Sep/06
Tyra went on a height chart on her show? How many of you can witness this?
Leah said on 1/Sep/06
Okay, Tyra is a model...therefore she has to tell people she's tall (that's one of the job requirements). I wouldn't buy her, "Yeah, I'm 5'10"," for anything, especially since she keeps changing her height-story. People exaggerate their height (I even had a friend the other day tell me she's 5'8"-which is impossible because I'm 5'7" and taller). Therefore, I'd give her 5'8/9".
IMGmodL said on 1/Sep/06
Tyra is 5'10", but what i don't understand is why on America's Next Top Model, she always looks about 8 feet taller than the other girls, because some of those girls on that show are taller than Tyra! Especially when she did those photos with 5' 10" Nicole Linkletter, she honestly looked about 6 inches taller than her i don't understand, they were both wearing heels!

im 5'10 and im obsessed with heights and I know heights well, and tyra was 5'10 but it seem likes she 5'11 now because she was on wild n out and nick canon is like 6 feet or 5'11 and she was exactly an inch shorter

I heard her in one TV interview that top models ought to be at least 5'8 or 5'9 at least.

She wasnt asked of her height directly but mubbled it out nevertheless as she trailed off when the host interupted her.

He commented that she IS really TALL when they both stood up to scale each other. He claimed to be 6'4 ( in formal shoes) and Tyra was only a wee bit shorter than he was and she had on only modest 3-4 inch heels.

She mubbled ... 5'10 ..... and yes.... I heard her... saw the comparison made there and then.... as well as comparing her with the ANTM contestants ( all of which are tall gals) ..... she towers over them.

I believe her... she's 5'10 ... Period.

i am a girl recently arrived from italy i am 182 centimetres and 17 yrs old so i wanted to try being a model. at the agency i saw tyra banks and she seemed even taller than me but maybe its because i wear converse shoes and she wears high heels?
Kats said on 19/Apr/06
Thanks ds. I've never read details like that for requirements. I've heard 5'9 is often considered minimum. But you are so right... there are exceptions. This Tyra story is definitely curious to me. I most recently said she is probably 5'9, but I still feel like she is more. Maybe she measures 5'10 and the story about her not being chosen solely on her being too short is bogus. We'll see. No one has given me the real story yet.

Haha, George, you have got to be joking around! There is no freaking way she is only 5'7! She is noticably taller than many models, and they definitely are not 5'5!
george said on 17/Apr/06
Are u kidding 5.10? I met her few times and I'm 5.9 i had good 2 in on her maybe even more,once i had a sneakers 310 it's like 1 santimeters max an she had kind of lil hills so SHE IS 5.7 TOPS!!!
ds said on 14/Apr/06
Hmm Kats, I read the height requirement for agencies in NYC was 5'10" for runway. Sometimes they accept 5'9". But then why are Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, Milla Jovocic (spell?), and Alessandra Ambrosio all FAMOUS runway models, when they're clearly under 5'10". There are plenty of 5'7"'s and 5'8"'s. Looking at Tyra Banks, she def. a solid 5'10" plus.
Kats said on 8/Apr/06
All right... so if she's between 5'10-5'11 that could explain why she has given both heights. Is the story true that she claimed she had trouble getting into modeling partially because she wasn't tall enough? With that story went a claim of "5'9." Z2 below did discuss this and mentioned "picky agencies" not excepting her for not hitting the 5'10 mark...

Anyone else care to explain this?
ChrisW said on 8/Apr/06
On Top Model, Tyra has stated several times that she is 5'11. Most recently, there is a girl on Top Model (Sara) who is around 6'2 or something. But Tyra said that she is really tall at that height, because people say Tyra is tall and she is 5'11, which is on the higher end for female models.

[Editor Rob: I think one time I'm sure she mentioned 6ft, but she has said 5ft 11 and in the past 5ft 10...somewhere in between those might be nearer, 179cm]
kenneth p said on 7/Apr/06
shes more like5"9(1.75m) bare foot to me.. Models always puts on heels.. Hardly tell their exagerate height by eye..
ds said on 5/Apr/06
5'8" is ridiculous!!! She's 179 cm thats why she says 5'10 and 5'11"...
Kats said on 4/Apr/06
K, k... so Tyra grew? Because before she has said 5'10. Now that she says 5'11 that means she grew!!!! Oh boy!!

The better guess is she is lying both times. Her being 5'9 and being taller than other models I think makes them shorter. *gasp* could some models that claim to be a certain height be lying too?????????????????????????????

How do we REALLY KNOW Gisele is 5'11? Please.
k said on 31/Mar/06
ok tyra is 5'11 she recently stated it on americas next top model and she is one of the taller models
nou-nou said on 30/Mar/06
I think that Tyra is about 5'10- 5'11 because i saw a pic of her standing next to Gisele Bundchen and they look roughly the same height, and Gisele is 5'11. Oh and they were both wearing flip-flops.
Kats said on 25/Mar/06
I'm going to have to recant my 5'10-5'11 conclusion and put her at 5'9. Her large oval head has created an illusion of more height for me--although some people disagree that oval faces do such a thing, I still believe it to be true. It's funny if she really is 5'9, because she towers over many females, and other 5'9 claimers don't seem to as much as Tyra. It's slight evidence that 5'9 claimers are usually liars. Tyra's a legit 5'9er and that is TALL.

My guess now is more on her show are 5'7 than is admitted. Some even a little less...

I really think Glenn knows what's up. 5'9".
JJ said on 18/Mar/06
It's harder to gauge her height because she has a large forehead. But she has to be 5'10" or a bit taller.
Jake said on 15/Mar/06
Tyra is not 5'11". Probably not even 5'10".
Jamie said on 12/Mar/06
When watching America's Next Top Model, comparing her height to the other girls is usually a pretty good way to detect her height. She's usually on par with the taller girls (5'10-5'11), and is taller than the shorter girls (obviously). I'd say she's 5'10-5'11.

Regardless, she really has no reason to lie now that she's retired and no longer needs to rely on booking work.
Glenn said on 10/Mar/06
I used to be a celebrity photog in the early nineties and then found selling autographs more lucrative in Im a height enforcer too!
J.J.F said on 10/Mar/06
She was listed at 5'9" by her modelling agency when she started out in the 90's. Will see if i can find the article.
Anonymous said on 10/Mar/06
Tyra is 5'11".She is the right height for a runway model,but too big in front and the butt
Anonymous said on 9/Mar/06
Glenn, I think you and I know what's up. What do you do for a living? Or are you just blessed with many star sightings?
And Annonymous, I really met Latifah about five days ago now, and it is pretty clear to me that she's 5'8".
Anonymous said on 9/Mar/06
hahaha 5'9 gimme a break..
She looks sooo tall... like 5'10 / 5'11...
Queen Latifa is around 5'10 so...!
Glenn said on 8/Mar/06
She is 5-9.
Anonymous said on 7/Mar/06
You know what's weird, Queen Latifa is only 5'8" or 5'9" (just met her in L.A. and Glenn confirms with me). But she was the exact same height as Tyra on Tyra's show last night. I think Tyra must be closer to 5'9".
T-coleman said on 7/Mar/06
It's possible that she is 5ft 10. But when I look at her on her show, I see her to be about 5'11".
naeemah said on 5/Mar/06
a couple of months back i saw tyra banks in paris..and i am just touchin the scale of 5'10..n she was lyk a bit taller than me so she must be about 5'10 or 5'11..she's so sweet ..she told me i should do modeling..and she said she loved my bone structure...
nic said on 5/Mar/06
i was 5'6 when i was 12 and im now 17 and i only grew 2 inches i went to a modeling call when i was your age and they thought i was going to be really tall so you never know
Jake said on 5/Mar/06
Tyra seems to me to be very close to 5'10", however not quite.
khulan said on 3/Mar/06
i am 12 and i am trying to be a model myself. I have been throught diffrent kind of agencees and i am 5'5 or 5'6 i think i am gonna be too tall to be a model when i grow up so i was trying to figure out how tall was tyra when she was 12.
bikagyura said on 3/Mar/06
5' 11 is very possible
Kats said on 1/Mar/06
I'm actually confused by Tyra when I see her on ANTM next to the contestants and she is 3-4 inches taller than them. I saw last season's finale again tonight and she looked at least 2 inches taller than the winner who is listed as 5'9... this supposed 5'9 girl looks 2 inches taller than a few of the contestants, making them 5'7. It would be weird if the 5'9 girl is less than that, making the supposed 5'7 people less--when 5'7 is supposed to be the shortest allowed (although a past winner is listed as 5'6 1/2 nowadays). So is Tyra really 5'11? Their heels looked the same, but maybe there was an advantage I couldn't detect with Tyra's. I still think she is 5'10 since she's said it. I doubt she's downgraded herself. Maybe some of the contestants on her show are shorter than listed...

Trya does seem to tower over the majority of females I see her with, but even 5'10 will do that.
Rae said on 17/Feb/06
I hope I wasn't misunderstood. When I said Tyra must fool many I never meant that she was lying about her height. I meant that a lot of people probably, like me, percieve her to be taller. I'm 5'3 so I guess a lot of people seem like giants to me. Tyra's A Beautiful 5'10! By the way, I rely only on this site for heights. :)
rockstar said on 16/Feb/06
Tyra wouldn't be lying about her height!? I mean honestly why does she need to? She is already a georgeous sucessful woman. I dont understand howcome people always have to contradict the celebrity. I understand that sometimes a celebrity on the shorter end of the spectrum may exaggerate their as not to be embarassed - if they are not comfortable with themselves - however, Tyra is already plenty tall and a confident female. If she says she is 5'11', I believe that she is 5'11'!
Rae said on 16/Feb/06
Tyra must fool many then. I thought for sure she was closer to 5'11, even taller. Remenber her with Will Smith on Fresh Prince? Must be all the heels.
smokeblower said on 14/Feb/06
She is taller than nick cannon. she stood next to him on wild n out and she appeared to be a cm taller than him in trainers. Unfortunately I do not remember the shoes Nick had on.
Brett said on 13/Feb/06
Another thing, Tyra was right next to the Height chart too, and in her big heels, she was not more then the 6'0" mark, so I dont think she is more then 5'10" barefooted. Considering the chart was there to make that Blonde guy feel better ( about being 6ft in 3 inch shoes, which is rather pointless), there is more of a chance that it was a doctored chart, and that it could be less then it really is. Either way Tyra was on the 6'0, or 6'0.25" mark in her heels.
Brett said on 13/Feb/06
I saw the Tyra Banks show ( god knows why), and she said openly she was 5'10" , it was the episode where that blonde feminine guy from " next top model" was on the show, and he was angry because everyone thought he was only 5'9". So they bought out this height chart, to measure him, and Tyra said he was 6'1" haha, the only problem is, his head was lower the the 6'0" mark, and he said he was wearing lifts, so he probably is 5'9" barefooted, and that segment seemed like it kind of back fired on him, and was kind of pointless. Either way, she said she was 5'10" then and there, and the Blonde Dude really is no more then 5'9"-10 either. Why cant we all get measured in 3 inch lifts hahaha
ds said on 8/Feb/06
And Jerricette I hate people who greatly underestimate celebrity heights...I mean when you haven't met the celeb and you're saying she's way below her listed height even when there's no proof she is. 5'8" is RIDICULOUS!!!
ds said on 30/Jan/06
Ok I saw 5'10" and 5'11" as her lsitings. The I saw 5'10.5" and I thought perfect. Okay I'm 172 cm (5'7.75" And I always say I'm 5'7", because I don't feel like saying 5'7.5" or 5'7.75", cept for modeling I will and that's the only time i might round up to 5'8". So maybe she doesn't want to sound like an idiot, and be like 'I'm 5'10 and a half' or quearter or w/e. Get it? But I always considered her REALLY tall, I don't really see Adriana Lima or Heidi Klum as that tall. And om Heidi Klum is like my height, I met her and she is like 174 cm max. Maybe even 173...but I'll give her 174...
