legit 181 guy could be on the spot

I will say everyone agrees he's more of a strong 5-11.

I'd be a little surprised If he dipped under it, even at night

He has a build that makes him look taller imo. I remember the 6-3 listings.

Funny thing is as a 10 year old I knew he was 5-11. Must have been a listing in a magazine

Jheeez man his height estimations seem to be all over the place from the comments and his mad 6’2 claim. Judging by this picture alone however, his body proportions really don’t make him look above his listed 5’11 1/4”

Vanilla Ice's Height, is actually 6' 0.1/2". and Weighs around 145 POUNDs, from the looks of it.

Rob, I think that Vanilla Ice really should get an upgrade. When you saw him next to Sandler, you said he could look anywhere from 5'11" to 6 feet range. Here are his pictures next to 195 cm Jonathan Scott and 6'1" Michael Bay: Click Here

He actually looks taller than 5'11". Rob, will you give him upgrade to 181 cm now?
Editor Rob
I think you can make a good enough case that Ice is 5ft 11-11.5 zone and is adding somewhere between 2 and 3 inches to his height.

He looks about 6’1” / 6’2” on his show.

@Slim 6'

That'll be hilarious. Vanilla's 6'2" claim will be destroyed.

I'd like this guy to claim 6'2" to Ryan Reynolds. How pathetic.
Slim said on 28/Sep/17
6'2" claim!!!!!!!!???? 😭😲💀🤦‍♂️🤐

Now, a lot of 5'11.5 listed guys are flat 5'11 but this guy is really 5'11 and a change.

I cannot understand that how can he be 180 cm when you just look at his legs, they're as short as a 5ft 8 guy, my legs are around 90-94 cm but my spine hasn't grown since 13 and I am just 178-179cm and 17 years old, I really cannot understand why my spine is so short??😞

He had a strong 5'10 proportion

@Editor Rob,

Is 181 possible? I remember you said he could look anywhere from 5'11"-6' and he has 2 inches on Adam Sandler.
Editor Rob: 6ft 2 is an impossible, but yeah he could look taller than 5ft 11 at times.

You could argue 181/182cm. The 6ft2 listings are a fairly recent thing (probably just the last 5 years). Back in the day he was always described at 5ft11.
AJ said on 29/Jun/16
I don't think he is 6'2" but he doesnt look quite 5'11" " flat. He can pull off the 6' mark. Rob maybe adjust the listing to 5'11.25"?
Brad said on 29/Jun/16
6-2, Wahlberg type of increase.
berta said on 29/Jun/16
Yeah 180 seems like ea good listing the mosvt ever i could se him is 181,5 and the shortest is 179. Rob the 6 foot 2 claim must have been a joke?
Byron T. said on 29/Jun/16
I used to think he was taller, but 5'11'' seems about right for him.
MrTBlack said on 28/Jun/16
I've heard upwards towards 6'3" with this guy but most def 5'11" MAX!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jun/16
At least we now know he claimed 6ft2...
CS said on 27/Jun/16
Another 5'11" guy
Aaron Zamora said on 27/Jun/16
Has he lost any height at this age?
Editor Rob: at his age, I wouldn't be sure if he has lost anything noticeable.
Linke said on 27/Jun/16
Is 182 cms a possiblity? Looks atleast 5 cms taller than Sandler.
truth said on 27/Jun/16
5'11 is spot on.
Shredder said on 27/Jun/16
If there was a problem yo Rob solves it , Hes not 6'2 and Rob's gonna call it ... 5'11 baby! He's just a 5'11 baby!
Mat said on 26/Jun/16
6 foot 2 my ass. But then again, there's no way he believes this **** himself. He's just trolling twitter. I wouldn't blame him
MaryAnne said on 26/Jun/16
Thanks Rob. His 6'2 claim is funny and ridiculous. He is legit 5'11 guy. ^^
