Ryan Seacrest's Real Height

I think more than anything else, I know when I go to bed that no one's working harder doing what I'm doing, and I think, quite frankly, simply that hard work at some point was gonna pay off.

Famous television presenter, and producer, Ryan Seacrest is known for hosting programs on multiple media platforms like American Idol, American Top 40, and On-Air with Ryan Seacrest.

About Ryan Seacrest's Real Height

How tall is Ryan Seacrest? Or should we say how short is he? Because he definitely isn't tall.

Ryan's secretary thinks that he has got a 5'11" frame -- which makes him kind of tall...

Though Ryan himself is far more modest and has claimed to be only 5 feet 9 inches tall. But even that has been effectively called bullshit on TV.

In a definitely scripted On Air With Ryan Seacrest episode "Seacrest Hilariously Attempts to Settle His Height Debate On-Air".

In the video, he is annoyed by Google's listing of him at 5'7" and egged on by three women he somehow manages to get hold of a measuring tape in a second and gets rid of his shoes. Those shoes would definitely have made him 5'11" tall because they are special shoes.

Then Ryan tries to measure himself by holding the tape in front of him. We don't see the top or bottom of the tape but a person off-screen proclaims that Ryan is somewhere between 5'9" and 5'10".

But Ryan should not have gotten his hopes that much up, because in a moment the person claims that it is 5'9".

Was that unexpected? Well, Ryan was about to get another nasty surprise. The person then claims that Ryan is definitely 5'8" -- to the wild laughter of the three women.

To say that the measurement was bungled would be the understatement of the century.

That's why we decided to take the matter into our own hands. After comparing his height to that of people like Ellen DeGeneres (5'7" in her prime), James McAvoy (5'7"), and Justin Bieber (5'7½"), now we think that Ryan is definitely in the 5'8" neighborhood but in the southern end of it.
