Jimmy Kimmel Height

I'm always looking to the next thing. There are always hurdles, whether it's the White House dinner or hosting charity events or that night's show: Until they're over, I worry, then I move right on to the next thing. It's hard for me to enjoy the moment. I'm just thinking about not failing.

Television host and comedian, Jimmy Kimmel is probably best for hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live! -- a late-night talk show of awkward comedy.

About Jimmy Kimmel's Real Height

Jimmy Kimmel once claimed to be six feet one inch tall, saying that his first driving license had him listed at that height. But where did that number come from exactly? They rarely measure your height at DMV.

Anyway, long story short, we suspected that there is really something fishy about Mr. Kimmel's claim about his height therefore we took a careful look at him and compared his height to that of Chris Evans (6"), John Cena (6'½"), Barack Obama (6'1"), Tom Brady (6ft 4¼), and some more such interesting people.

And now we just can't see how would Jimmy measure up 6'1, unless the guy who measured him for his driving license was just doing his job for the money.

The height of Jimmy Kimmel is

5'11¼" or 181 cm

"On Monday and Thursday, I eat fewer than 500 calories a day; then I eat like a pig for the other five days. You 'surprise' the body: keep it guessing. I got the idea from a BBC documentary about this Indian man who seemed about 138 years old and said his secret was severe calorie restriction."
