Steve Ballmer is not 6'5".

Here he is with Bill Gates:

Here he is with Doc Rivers, a former NBA player, who is likely between 6'3" and 6'4":

Although the angle is not conducive to accurate assessment, it can safely be assumed that Ballmer is not 6'5".

Here Ballmer is with Chris Paul, who was measured at 5'11.75":

It seems like he is roughly 6' tall. He might have a shoe disadvantage in that photo, but Chris Paul has probably just played a game and is at his low. I still think Ballmer is taller than Paul, though.

I think he's around 5"10-5"11. His unique posture cuts off couple inches, probably from being sedentary. He also tends to walk/ stand little hunchbacked and with his legs slouched.

Yeah look at the length of that university gown in the prime pic. You could imagine how that would look on an average guy like Bill LOL. I think the gown looks even longer than one of Alan Napier's long coats and that's saying something!

Manganiello and his brother with a 5'11 father end up 6'5-6'7 and this guy with a 6'7 father ends up 5'9" range. Doesn't make sense LOL, genetics are VERY complicated!! Also there's environmental/health factors when in teenage years of course which means you might not achieve your genetic potential. Bill might have been ill as a teenager or something. Kiefer Sutherland I think started smoking at a very young age which might have affected his growth.

@Amaaze, I think that's his mother on the right in the first photo I linked, he looks a bit like her facially, more so than his father. Can't see footwear but she's clearly a decent height.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Jun/15
A guy 6'5 or 6'6 at 70 is something, but a guy near that height at 90 is most extraordinary!!
Arch Stanton says on 2/Jun/15
Where I used to work a 5'9 ish older lady said her brother was 6 ft 8 and a half. Didn't believe her. Well I saw him one say and even at early 70s odd he did look near it, had a good six inches on me, I'd have said more 6'7.5-6'8 though, but he might well have lost an inch or so. I think he'd have genuinely measured that at peak! I think that's the tallest old guy I've seen. There was also a massive Jeff Capes look alike old guy on holiday once who had to have been about 6 ft 6 and 20 something stone. He was about 70 odd too and peak might well have been 6 ft 7 range. He was a massive guy. You don't see guys over 70 that tall very often.

WOW His dad is a extremely tall guy LOL, he looks like a giant in that prime pic im not even kidding. he is HUUUUUUUGE. Massive.

at 90 he's still 6'4.5-5! holy **** that guy is Massive lol extremely tall. how tall is his mother?
i'd say bill gates is lucky!! he got that luckier gene. must be wierd having to look up at your dad when hes like 90 and your like nearly 60 xD

ive never seen an old person look that extremely tall before!
Arch Stanton says on 31/May/15
The odd thing too Rob is that his mother looks tallish too, so it's not like his mother is like Bieber's. What happened!!
[Editor Rob: genetics favoured the average genes more than the tall ones.

Since humans have been around for a very long time - although compared to dinosaurs it's barely anything - if genes always favoured the tall then people would be absolutely enormous by now.]
Arch Stanton says on 31/May/15
No guy with a 6 ft 7 father should be under 6 ft LOL!!!
Arch Stanton says on 30/May/15
Click Here That's his dad in his prime. 6'6-6'7 quite possible for him.
Arch Stanton says on 30/May/15
Rob, how tall does his dad look to you? Click Here Click Here I think he looks 6'4.5-6'5 even at 90 odd! He was supposed to have been 2 metres tall at peak and I think that's quite possible don't you? Bill Gates and his father is even worse than Donald and Kiefer!! I could buy 6 ft 7 for him prime if he's that height at 90 odd!
[Editor Rob: he may well have lost 2-3 inches and was 6ft 7 range.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/May/15
His father whose like 90 almost towers over him!
Vince says on 14/May/15
Just looked at some more recent photos of him. David Cameron has an easy 3 inches on Gates. Yeah, 5' 9.5" currently.
Vince says on 14/May/15
5' 10"? Or could he have shrunk? What do you think, Rob?
[Editor Rob: a bit under 5ft 10 today I think he can look.]
Vince says on 14/May/15
Also looked 5' 10" with Prince Charles.
Vince says on 14/May/15
Haha! He's no more than 2 inches shorter than Tony Blair though. So either Gates is 5' 10" or Blair is not quite 6' 0".
Vince says on 11/May/15
Didn't you have him as 5' 10" before? If so, why the downgrade?
[Editor Rob: my Windows kept crashing!]

[Editor Rob: somewhere in 5ft 8 range.]

177cmGuy says on 9/Jan/15
5'10 (178cm) at peak height. Today most likeley 5'9 (174-176cm) he's turning 60 this year.
thatguy says on 3/Sep/14
He's around 5'8 (172-174cm) today. He also does wear a lot of dress shoes, that give him at least 1.5 inches of height.
Efoersaan says on 16/Jan/14
In this commercial with Seinfield (180 cm) at 28 seconds Click Here
Bill doesn't look anything taller than 175 cm. But it should be said that he has some terrible posture. Maybe 177 cm 30 years ago standing straight.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 13/Jan/14
Rob, could Bill Gates be more 5ft9 range?

You have Steve Jobs at 6ft flat but there was easily at least 3in there, if not 4in.
[Editor Rob: yeah he can look 5ft 9. Never would say Jobs looked 4 inches taller, maybe 3 though]
avi says on 5/Sep/13
@[Editor Rob: considering the size of wallet he carries around, it wouldn't surprise me he lost height.]

Bill never carries his wallet Rob so maybe he hasn't lost height! anyway his father was 6'6 or weak 6'6 i think now maybe 6'4 zone at 87-88 yrs old. Bill seems 5'10 next to him but i believe Bill could be 5'9 and change
jeff dan says on 3/Sep/13
Steve Ballmer is 6ft 5.
jam says on 27/Aug/13
Has he lost height? he seems more 5'8 territory these days.
[Editor Rob: considering the size of wallet he carries around, it wouldn't surprise me he lost height.]
Viking says on 10/Aug/13
The cience in this is to cut between 2 and 5 cm at least in the height of famous people.
This is a joke,not based on knowledge or anything, except i think that is right,and my midget crowd will be happy.
Anonymous says on 8/Mar/13
does anybody know how tall is steve ballmer?
true says on 31/Jan/13
5'10 , has bad posture that makes him look 5'9
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 21/Dec/12
Why not?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Jul/12
Rob, could Steve Jobs have been 186-187cm?
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1 range is possible for him, but I don't know about adding]

@Maverick says on 15/Dec/11
Editor Rob ... please change the comment you put under Bills height, about him counting bank balance, that comment is extremely rude to someone who has sacrificed his life to help the poor. Much Appreciated

ah you're a baby. he hasn't sacrificed his life to that he has nothing else to do
avi says on 11/Feb/12
nah he can't be. next to German president he is way shorter. also lots of women are taller than him. weak 5'9 at best probably less.
