Hey this is how tall my "6 foot 4" cousin looks next to a 5 foot 8 person in my family! Oh wait.
joe @@ said on 22/Aug/15
it looks few mm more than the number Challenge 5
joe said on 15/Aug/15
Rob, the rock looks like they had the same height, they also were both with good posture
Andrea said on 9/Aug/15
Rob, do you think he'd look like in the photo (with the 6'2.5-6-2.75 guy) with the other "Superman" Tom Welling? I think Tom would be just a bit taller than him...
[Editor Rob: I think if you took a dozen photos from different positions, you probably would think they were very similar. Routh in person I think has very good posture like Welling.]
joe said on 8/Aug/15
tom welling probably be a higher 7mm think difference is not visible to the naked eye
Moke said on 16/Jul/15
You can do basically everything with this height. Pick up every woman, still move comfortably and not stiff, play every sport except maybe for gymnastics or equitation. Always have clear view but not stand out from the crowd when not feeling like it. Lucky man. Listing is very good.

Hi Rob,
Just wondered if the heights on this website represent the average heights of these people and not the lowest heights of the day or late afternoon when they'll be below their average. I'm 6'1" at 11am and this happens to be my average height. (6'1.375" out of bed and 6'0.625" before bed) several people I know also are at their average at a similar time of day.
[Editor Rob: afternoon or evening, typically only has 2-3mm difference on average. They're not thought of as morning.]
frank said on 5/Jul/15
Rob, if I am 184.5 In the morning after I wake up, what do you think I will measure in the afternoon and at night? Thank you
[Editor Rob: likely between 182 and 3 zone. Maybe 182.5ish at night]
BMW 186 said on 25/Jun/15
Looks like 6'1.5
Aza said on 22/Jun/15
This listing is spot on. A genuine 189 cm person ( lowest height) barefoot is an awesome height to be.

Rob, who do you think would be taller between him and Chris Hemsworth?
yes, chris would measure a little highClick Here
joe 193cm night said on 17/Jun/15
it seems to work very well in some posture photos
Andrea said on 15/Jun/15
Rob, he actually looks max 6'2 with those two guys, do you think he was dropping some height during the photoshoot? Strange because he generally looks a guy with a great posture...
[Editor Rob: actually the 5ft 11.5ish guy recognised me as my face was 'everywhere', I've no idea what site he visiting but then once you put photos up on the web you have to realise they can be shown anywhere without much care!
I would be surprised if Routh wasn't standing decent with those guys, although Dr Who fan (who typically wears converse) as part of the peter davison 'cosplay' always has (mostly) a great pose in photoshoots I've seen him take.]
Modeus said on 13/Jun/15
I doubt hugh jackman has ever been a true 6 ft 2 guy
Jason said on 12/Jun/15
Rob, who do you think would be taller between him and Chris Hemsworth?
[Editor Rob: I think Hemsworth would edge him. ]
Andrea said on 11/Jun/15
Rob, would you have given to him if you didn't meet him? I mean, if you compare him to the other guys on here, he really can look a big 6'3! He looks at least as tall as The Rock (in some pictures he actually looks taller), he looked a solid inch taller than Hugh Jackman, when he was only 38, so still near his peak! if you wanna be coherent, you should list him 6'3.25! Of course, he's not that tall though. I think he's just a solid 6'2.5, as listed!
[Editor Rob: possibly 6ft 2.75...I think he has a good physique and posture, I would say 6ft 2.5 could be his after tea height, he may well be 6ft 2.75 at lunch range.

Remember he was 'outgunned' by a Dr Who fan who again I saw this weekend up close and I'd guess him in 6ft 2.5-3 range Click Here. The other thumb beside him is a guy I spoke to actually a few times recently and that guy is about 181-2.]
joe 193cm night said on 3/Jun/15
bad angle and ended 6'2.5
Andrea said on 3/Jun/15
Well, if you wanna believe in a 6'2 "peak" Hugh Jackman (that picture was taken in 2006, so i doubt Hugh had lost any height), Brandon does look a big 6'3 guy at least, yeah... But i dont think he's more than his listing! Good chance 189 is his low, though. A big 189 is what i think he'd measure!
Aswin Kini MK said on 2/Jun/15
I am surprised on how people still downgrade Brandon's height despite clear proof that he's 6 foot 3+ inches. For example, people, including Rob, agree that Hugh Jackman is a clear 6 foot 2. Here is an image from IMDB which shows Brandon Routh standing next to Hugh Jackman. There is atleast an inch of difference between them indicating he is a clear 6 foot 3 guy.

189 night
out of bead nearly 6'3.25
joe 193cm night said on 22/May/15
I have routh 189cm strong but Momoa prace aprnas 6'3.5 beside himClick Here
Aza said on 16/May/15
Brandon does look 190 cm but maybe it's the hair. He does look genuinely taller than Dwayne Johnson.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/15
Rob, maybe 190cm is closer?

I think he'd be similar to Welling.
[Editor Rob: he would be that height for a part of the day but I think he drops to 189, but then that is his low.]
Hypado said on 13/May/15
Brandon Routh's height is 6ft 2.5in (189 cm)

A strong 188 cm and a weak 189 cm guy.
Andrea said on 30/Apr/15
Noway 6'3.5 or even 6'3... He's clearly shorter than the 191.5 challenger with Rob! I can buy a solid 6'2.5, though... I don't think he'd be under 189 if measured!
joe 193cm night said on 30/Apr/15
Aswin MK,Rob, already showed the difference between 191.7 cm measured face Brandon is much shorter
[Editor Rob: Routh I think is still a solid enough 6ft 2.5 guy, he may well measure 6ft 3.4-5 range out of bed.
In person he was nearer the 6ft 2.25 guys height rather than the 6ft 3 3/8ths guys height.
Aswin MK said on 28/Apr/15
I am sorry but I am afraid Rob is a bit off the mark with the 6 foot 2.5 inch prediction here. Brandon looks a solid 6 foot 3 not a weak 6 foot 3 as some people mention here.

The height difference between Rob and Brandon Routh in this picture is the same between me and my brother. He is a tall 6 foot 2(2ish+) and I am around 5 foot 7 inches. I have actually measured his height from the tip of the nose to the top of his head and guess what the measurement was 7.5 inches. So, if Rob is 5 foot 8 as he claims, I am adding a minimum 6.5-7 inches here (Don't believe me, find a similar size person and measure yourself. The height comes close to 6 foot 3 or 6 foot 3.5. I can safely say Brandon is a strong 6 foot 3 inches and perhaps half an inch above.

This guy give the impression of weak 6ft 3
alhths said on 26/Mar/15
in the arrow show ,he seems 6'3
Josh said on 19/Mar/15
He's looking 6'3 in that photo with you. He looks like a big 6'3 dude.
nayhole said on 19/Mar/15
Honestly thought this guy was much bigger the 6'2 more like 6'6 years ago because he towered over everyone but now i am thinking hes 6'3
joe 193cm night said on 19/Mar/15
Guy Henrydefinitely is 3cm higher,rob that shift was taken the photo the night or afternoon?
[Editor Rob: both afternoon I believe.]
joe 193cm night said on 11/Mar/15
rob, make a mounting challenge with the number 5 Brandon Routh
joe 193cm night said on 10/Mar/15
Andrea, the picture was also taken very closely increased the brandon high
Andrea said on 8/Mar/15
I know, that's why i said Zach might actually edge him out, barefoot... But i'm not so sure there would be almost an inch between them! Brandon has high shoulders so he could appear taller than he is at times... Zach looks a weak 6'3 next to Rob and Jared Padalecki!
joe 193cm night said on 7/Mar/15
Andrea, Brandan has the advantage footwearClick Here
joe 193cm night said on 7/Mar/15
Andrea, the Routh shoes gave him a considerable ilpulso, but I agree 6'3 flat for zachary
Andrea said on 6/Mar/15
Joe, i saw Chuck and saying "he was noticeably less than Zachary Levi" is just BS! They actually look quite similar and Brandon can look taller than him, but Zach has less shoes in most of the episodes so maybe Zach might edge him out, nothing "noticeable" though. I still doubt Zach would be 0.75 inches taller than him!
joe 193cm night said on 5/Mar/15
another dumb guy giving wrong information you did not see Chuck Zachary was higher
Jonathan said on 3/Mar/15
Routh is bigger than 6'2.5" more like 6'4", he seems a bit bigger than his Chuck co-star Zachary Levi who is 6'3". My most educated guess would be 6'3.5".

joe 193cm night said on 23/Feb/15
Arch Stanton you did not see Chuck he was noticeably less than Zachary Levi
Arch Stanton said on 21/Feb/15
Well he's tall enough to get away with claiming 6 ft 3 put it that way.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/15
Rob who looked taller in person, Brandon Routh or Jack Coleman?
[Editor Rob: hard to say, I think it would be interesting to measure them both.]
Judd said on 22/Jan/15
Perfect example of a 6'2.5" guy!
Tunman said on 1/Jan/15
Another example of the perfect pic,Rob,it seems that both of you stand at quite optimal posture.I mean you reach slightly over his nose which would be like a solid 16cm for a head probably near 24cm.Am I wrong?
[Editor Rob:
Unfortunately I can't photograph myself, but this is as close to ideal.

Lebensdorf said on 21/Dec/14
No, I really think he looks 6'3 here.
kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 8/Dec/14
I correct one of my statements:Akshay is about 2.5in shorter than brandon.
kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 8/Dec/14
Hi Rampage,my american friend met brandon routh in philadelphia comic con and she comes upto my eyebrows.She has an autographed pic with brandon where she is like 2 to 2.5in shorter than him.She is a solid 181-182cms and claims that they had about equal footwear.He doesn't look over 6ft 2 with her.If he is slouching a little bit or she is tip towing who knows.Unfortunately she refused to share the pic.Personally I would say he is definitely more than 6ft 2.Even with bollywood star akshay kumar who is about my friend's height,he was 2.5 to 3 taller than brandon the movie Kambakkht ishq.You can check this video.You can skip to 1:20 and at 1:45 to see their height comparison.

lolo said on 6/Feb/13

Mikey T said on 31/Jan/13
Yeah he looks 6'3". My dad's 6'3" and I'm 5'8" and that's how I look next to my dad
thinker said on 26/Jan/13
solid 190 cm for brandon
maybe upgrade rob?
Greg said on 25/Jan/13
Looks legitimate.
Nils said on 22/Jan/13
Should be upgraded to 190cm
Alex said on 19/Jan/13
I think he is closer to 190 cm.
TheMan said on 6/Jan/13
I think he is more of a 6'3. You look very short next to him, and you are not short Rob. I don't think his hair is the case here.
Lo sgozzatore said on 29/Dec/12
Rob, did he really look shorter than Zachary Levi? There are a lot of pics of them together and he just doesnt look shorter, but likely taller
[Editor Rob: they are pretty close, but levi wore chucks a lot on his show.]
Aragorn 5\'11 said on 22/Dec/12
6'2.5 in the morning
6'2.25 in the day
6'2 before bed
Rikashiku said on 21/Dec/12
Looks 6'3" but that may be due to the hair.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/12
Probably between 6ft2.5-6ft3 like Tom Welling
jasper186cms said on 19/Nov/12
Solid 6ft 2.5..can be 6ft 3 as well.
James said on 15/Nov/12
6'2.75. Looked very close too 6'3 rock.
Fern194cm-192cm said on 12/Nov/12
Based on this picture alone, I would say around 6,3. Closer to 6,3 than 6,2 is probably the case. I mean if you compare this photo to 6,4 listed jason momoa he looks around the same height. I always get him mixed up with Tom Welling....
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 28/Oct/12
Would be interesting to see a pic of him next to Tom Welling, I believe Welling would edge him a little.
The Exorcist said on 28/Oct/12
I'm seeing 6'3" in the photo with Rob.
Lo sgozzatore said on 21/Oct/12
Rob, in person did he look taller than the challenger who is 189?
[Editor Rob: pretty close I think, but I've seen the challenger look 188cm aswell because he does night shifts and I caught him for that challenge in his 'morning' time.]
Lo sgozzatore said on 13/Oct/12
Because your height is your low :)
Vegas said on 3/Sep/12
Alex says on 31/Aug/12
Hes at least a solid 6'2.25. I wouldn't go under that for him

he measures up almost identical to rob how 189cm challenger 5 did Click Here
[Editor Rob: I think the 189 is probably his low]
Alex said on 31/Aug/12

as a teenage . I have a dream that i would be 6feet long in future , i m really impressed at mr , routh's height , really by heart
patrick said on 12/Aug/12
sure he is 6' doubt for me. Rob is not that short with 5'8 and he really looks so here. almost 7 inches between them, probably 6.5 or so.
Joel said on 3/Aug/12
looks closer to 6'3"
matt789 said on 26/Jul/12
he looks defintley 6 foot 3 to me mabye even taller
Smallville said on 24/Jan/12
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Routh @ Collectormania also and I was amazed how tall he was. I am just over 6ft and he had a few inches on me easily. I remember looking at his boots which had a fair sized heel on them. I wasn't wearing flat shoes, but he was still taller than me. Other photos of me and people seem to confirm their height, I am just a little bit taller than Danny Dyer and Michael Rosenbaum. I remember Brandon saying to me that I was built like Superman, but I wish I was as tall as Supderman!
