Looks to be identical in height to Neil Patrick Harris on HIMYM, 5ft11.5 I think

There's no way he is measured to be up to 6 ft, I guess he is a little bit shorter than that, probably in the range of 5'11 1/2 to 5'11 3/4. I would like to put him at 5'11 3/4 cos he does look a bit taller.

@Junior: I don’t think that Was Mr.R’s intent to lie. He probably legitimately felt that was Wayne’s height when he saw him. More likely that Wayne had a footwear advantage on him being Mr.R is 5’11 3/8” himself. After seeing him with Davis I would have to say 5’10.5ish too. Davis looked 6’3 in person or thereabouts. Imho since he was measured in the AM I would say maybe 6’2 7/8 at a low
Andrea said on 17/Feb/18
Yeah. Although I think that Mr. R is always truthful when he says he has met this or that celebrity (unlike certain other posters), some of his estimates are certainly a bit hard to believe...
Wayne at 6' would make Boris 6'5-6'5.5 range (which I highly doubt) and Vernon no less than 6'4 (which is impossible, considering that he was measured at 6'3.25 and that NFL athletes get measured in the morning, so he very likely is no more than 6'3 at his low). In reality I would say that Wayne is more 5'10.5-5'11 range, Boris 6'4 and Vernon 6'3.
Junior Hernandez said on 7/Feb/18
No offence but Mr.R words hardly trust because 6'3 Vernon had Wayne by 4" and he say that he met George Clooney at best 5'9.5" and Noah Wyle was 5'10.75" standing at his tallest.
Canson said on 30/Jan/18
I doubt Davis even at a low is far under 6’3 even at a low in person maybe a chance at 6’2 7/8 since 2006 combines were morning. 4-4.5” May put Wayne 5’10.5-5’11
Andrea said on 21/Dec/17
How tall do you think he looks there, Rob? 4-4.5 inches shorter maybe? Considering that Vernon was measured at 6'3.25 (and might be a fraction under at his low), I'd stick with my original 179-180 guess...
Editor Rob: I thought roughly 4 inches in that clip...
Andrea said on 18/Dec/17
Rob, look at him with Vernon Davis, who was measured at 6'3.25: Click Here
Mr. R said on 19/Oct/17
Wayne is definitely closer to 6 feet. He was maybe a half inch taller than me when I met him at The Hollywood Bowl years ago.
Canson said on 17/Sep/17
Correction Andrea you are the one who started it by trying to influence our opinions and get us to change our estimates. Go look at Idris Elba's page. You said "Canson, if you still believe that Boris is 6'3" after all of these pics then I give up". This is after I said I respect your opinion. So again, you got frustrated with both Christian and me because we didn't "see it your way". That's what it boils down too.

And trash talk? Do you really wanna go there? to go and say you don't trust Bobby and to diminish his credibility was another because he made one bad estimate in your eyes. Same thing you did with the poster 6'3" on the page. Your post is there clearly so don't go and deny you did it. Fact is Andrea, Christian and I both showed evidence of him not being 6'4" as well just like you showed evidence of him being 6'4". Then you criticize a pic that is posted saying that you can't see certain elements/variables that make a difference. Only thing is your pics you post have the same flaw that you complained about with ours.

Bottom line don't go off sounding high and mighty like you have been persecuted against etc just because we challenged you because we don't see it your way and we called your BS (such as picking and choosing pics and saying these don't work but yours do) Yes you did that as well.

At the end of the day everything here is an estimate. But fact is to say he is 6'4" just because Rob says he is, and based on pics is not cutting it. Christian and I both have just as much of an argument as you do with our pics as well as the fact two people have met him (whether you want to believe them or not), and the polls of 6'3.44. Another piece I might add like Both of us said is that the averag vote is rarely lower than what Rob lists a celeb it's usually higher. That's common knowledge here
Andrea said on 14/Sep/17
You're right. That's exactly what I am doing, NOW. You are the one who started it when you said that I want Boris to be 6'4. You and Christian... I mean, you want the trash talk? You get the trash talk. At least, don't cry later... Don't worry, as long as people respect me, I respect them. As soon as they treat me like an idiot and come out with stupid sentences like "You clearly just want Boris to be 6'4" or "your idol Boris Khodjoe must be 6'4 in your eyes", they totally lose my respect and I have no problem stooping down to their level!
Arch Stanton said on 13/Sep/17
Surprised that Rob approves these sorts of comments. Seriously, it's only height, lighten up!
Canson said on 12/Sep/17
@Andrea: lol trash talk? That's exactly what you're doing to me. Saying things like "your friend Bobby" "you and Christian are boyfriends" or that Bobby isn't credible because he guessed someone at 6'0.5 from a pic or that 6'3" "is a poor estimator" on Boris when he met the guy in person. Lol you really have not room to talk especially given all you do is use pics and evidence that favors your argument and you ignore everything else which is all you have done all along here.
Andrea said on 12/Sep/17
You mad, bro? Because I'm not. 😊
Comments like these speak for themselves and tell a lot about your character. I think there's nothing to add... All you can do is trash talk, which is quite understandable considering that you don't have (and never had) any valid argument. 😜 You're just a pathetic, broken man!
Canson said on 11/Sep/17
@Andrea: where did I say that Boris is 189-190? I said his page listed him at 6'2.5 which I provided proof of yet you ignore it and His his agency website listed him 6'3. My guess is clear there 6'2.75 or 6'3. Don't put words in my mouth
Canson said on 11/Sep/17
6'4.5 Michael Jordan with Boris Khodjoe. That is absolutely no less than 2" diff between them. Even if you have MJ lile like Rob does at 6'5 it makes Boris 6'3" max. Funny how this pic is ignored but the others all take precedence over it

Canson said on 10/Sep/17
@MM: ok if that's the case maybe Wayne isn't 5'11. I may have overestimated him. None of us is perfect here. But to see that he is 5" shorter just because "Rob says so" is ridiculous. Rob hasn't met either one of them in person so his guess is as good as anyone's here maybe it is true maybe it isn't. But after looking at him again he likely isn't 5'11
Canson said on 10/Sep/17
@Anonymous (AKA Andrea). You're the one who needs to find the new hobby. You're still swearing up and down that there is a two cm difference between kobe and Boris when it clearly is not and not to mention we have a poster here at 6'4" who met him. And as dumb as I look? You sound like the typical dumb blonde ditz? "Oh Rob can we upgrade Boris to 6'4.25?" You even said he as 6'5" at one point so that shows just how intelligent you are. Like Christian also said go get out of your parents' basement and go find a life! You probably didn't even graduate high school and sell yourself on the street to make money because it's all your good at. Please don't start with those types of insults with me because you will not win this! I will go below the belt and have no issue doing so if you are going to do that with me
Canson said on 10/Sep/17
@MM: well you are entitled to do whatever you would like. If that's the case and he really is 5" shorter than Boris he likely isn't above 5'10. I may have overestimated Wayne. Don't sound high and mighty tho like you do
MM said on 8/Sep/17
@Canson

Dude, Rob just said below Boris looks 5 inches taller than Wayne. And you just agreed Brady looks 5'11. 5'11 + 5 inches = 6'4. I haven't seen any of Boris at all to have a say in this, but if it's your guess against Rob's, I'm gonna go with the latter one.
Anonymous said on 8/Sep/17
Nothing. They have nothing to do with each other. Just the FACT that there are at least 5 inches between them... I thought you were just trolling but you really are as dumb as you look. You are a natural! 😂
Do yourself a favour, Canson, don't embarrass yourself more than you have already done and find another hobby! 👍
Canson said on 7/Sep/17
@Andrea: what do Wayne Brady and Boris have to do with one another? You seem butt hurt that Christian and I and many others don't agree with you on Boris! What are you angry that your man crush no longer is the height you want him to be? Like Christian said you seem to make excuses for every pic where he doesn't come out looking 6'4 and only looks 6'2.75 or 6'3. And when you conveniently find a pic where he is favored they don't apply to the other celebs and it goes out of the window. What's your next excuse gonna be? Boris is not wearing shoes and someone else is? Wayne Brady is wearing shoes and someone else isn't? Or are you gonna continue to cry like you do just because someone doesn't see things your way? 😂 you're a joke!
KH said on 6/Sep/17
Arguing over half inches gets boring. Listing is fine. Could be a little taller could be a little shorter.

G 5'11 said on 4/Sep/17
Yeah he is tricky, when he was next to Misha he didn't seem taller then him (5'11) But here's where it gets even more interesting because the average guess for Wayne is around 5'11, but for Misha Collins it's about 5'10'.5 But the weird part is Collins looked to edge him but I doubt he wears lifts.

Another idiotic comment by the mascot of celebheights!!! hahaha
Misha's average is over 179.5 cm, so very close with Wayne's. But you can't really compare these averages, since few people have guessed on both of them. Plus, Misha has a photo with Rob, in which he doesn't look a full 5'11 maybe because he dropped height. But you wouldn't be able to understand all that dummy. xD
Andrea said on 5/Sep/17
Isn't 5'9-5'10 range a better listing then? I mean, Boris is 6'2.5-6'2.75 :-)
It's funny that Canson says that Wayne is as tall "as listed" but at the same time he says that Boris is not even 6'3. I guess it just goes to show his bias and incoherence, once again...
As for Mr. R's estimate, I have nothing against him but Wayne certainly wouldn't be the first celebrity he overestimates in person. Didn't he say that Andy Murray looked over 6'3 when Andy himself has claimed "187.5", so technically not even the full 6'2? It is hard to believe that he would be even a fraction over 5'11 with Misha and the other guys, let alone 6'.
Shredder said on 5/Sep/17
Drew Carey could be upgraded , I think 5'10.25 strong 5'10 is better , I think he claimed 5'11 before.
Dingus said on 4/Sep/17
At his tallest I'd peg him at 5'11.50". 5'10.75" is the lowest I would put him. I think this is an accurate listing.

Andrea said on 4/Sep/17
Yeah, he's not much different but Misha gives me a taller impression in that clip. They may well measure very close, though... It's funny that they both claim 6' when they're both no more than 5'11!
Rob, how much difference do you see between Wayne and Boris? I certainly don't see any less than 5 good inches and it can even look more 5.5 in some parts of the clip, kinda similar to how he can look with David Hasselhoff...
Editor Rob: there looked around 5 inches. That's the least overall I'd have said based on that clip, and with other people I just can't see as tall as 6 foot.
Mr. R said on 3/Sep/17
Wayne is a full blown 6 foot. Met him at the Hollywood Bowl.
MM said on 3/Sep/17
Rob, please watch the video that I linked and explain to me the huge difference between Wayne and Colbert...
Editor Rob: there looked about 2cm, although they weren't standing at their best in most of it. I think 5ft 11 is probably a fair shout, although I see mr. R mentioned he thought 6ft - it's rare to see an over-estimate from him!

but as the clip with Misha also could suggest, he didn't seem any taller than a guy who is about 5ft 11 in person.
Tyler said on 3/Sep/17
I think weaker 5'11
Andrea said on 3/Sep/17
I don't know, Arthur. It's hard to tell the real difference between him and Stephen from that video. In fact, it varies a bit through the clip, mainly because of different postures and camera angles/positions... I have seen nothing of Stephen but I certainly wouldn't put Wayne over 180, from all I've seen of him.
Editor Rob: he's not much different from Misha, at least he didn't seem taller, maybe at worst slightly smaller...I do think Misha is around 5ft 11 in person.
Blake said on 2/Sep/17
Rob, did I ask for you to add this guy?
Editor Rob: he's been asked for a couple of times, in last year at least.
MM said on 2/Sep/17
Andrea, I can see how he looks similar or even a bit shorter than Misha Collins on the clip you posted, but check him out on the clip I posted with Stephen Colbert. He nearly towers over him. I am exaggerating of course, but he looks at least 1 inch taller than Colbert. He has to be a full 5'11, and Colbert has to be 5'10 AT MOST and wears lifts on his show today.
MM said on 2/Sep/17
Rob, you are wrong on this one. Check out Stephen Colbert with Wayne Click Here Colbert is 2 inches shorter. I am actually 100% convinced Colbert wears lifts today, after watching this old video. Colbert is at most 5'10, and Brady is at least 5'11.
Matthew Robinson said on 2/Sep/17
I always estimate him at about 5'10.5" so this listing is believable.
Andrea said on 2/Sep/17
I think a guy like Misha Collins has more chance of hitting 5'11 than Wayne: Click Here
With legit 6'4 range guys like David and Boris he can look over 5 inches shorter aswell: Click Here Click Here
At the same time, I'm not sure he'd be under 5'10.5. I mean, look at him with this Wil Wheaton guy: Click Here . I don't know him but Rob met him and said he's around 5'9.5 in person...
Anywhere between 179 and 180 is very possible, IMO!
MM said on 2/Sep/17
The Whose Line Is It Anyway cast was quite gigantic, given the shortest person on it was Drew, a 5'10 guy. I had no problem believing this guy was 6 foot, I guess he is nt, but I'd argue nothing under this. He held good against very tall people.
Paul said on 2/Sep/17
Eh, this seems like a good listing to me. At times he can pull off 5'11 but I would definitely lean on him usually being under.
For instance he looks at least a half inch shorter than Joey Fatone here, who Rob has at 5'11.25 Click Here
I also don't think he edges Drew Carey enough to be a consistent full 5'11: Click Here Click Here
JasonBluth said on 2/Sep/17
He looked taller than NPH
Editor Rob: at times he can look at least 5ft 11.
Realist said on 1/Sep/17
I can see 5'11 for Bra
BT said on 1/Sep/17
@Cameron: Do you have a clip or still of Brady next to Chappelle? He has looked as tall, shorter and taller (!) than Neil Patrick Harris at times. He appeared similar to 5'10.5 William Zabka on How I Met Your Mother as well. He has looked anywhere between 5'10 and 5'11 I feel, so 5'10.5 remains my guess, he can look a little over or under the mark.
AJ said on 1/Sep/17
@Fisticuffs I was thinking the exact same thing. However looking at pictures of HIMYM when he was with Neil Patrick Harris he looked shorter. I think 5'11" though would be a better shout for wayne.
Shredder said on 1/Sep/17
Rob can Drew Carey be 5'10.5? They look pretty close
Editor Rob: yeah he might fall into a strong 5ft 10 range, he's not that much different than Wayne...except, more hair!
Cameron said on 31/Aug/17
Under-listed slightly imo, looks like a solid 5'11" to me. Many people have said he looks taller in person than he has on tv.
Fisticuffs said on 31/Aug/17
If you watch the Chapelle's show there's a scence of him and Dave on stage and I remember he looked a good half an inch or so taller so maybe he is the 182 he get so listed as.
Andrea said on 31/Aug/17
Thanks, Rob! He definitely doesn't look a thing over 5'11 and in fact I would have said that something like 5'10.5 was very possible from the clips I have seen. I probably wouldn't go under that, though. So maybe 5'10.75 is a good compromise, min 5'10.5 max 5'11...
Shredder said on 31/Aug/17
Always thought he was 5'11 rather than the 6'
