These People Are So Ridiculously Tall, People Are Having A Hard Time Believing They’re Even Real

Average heights vary by regions. Take the Netherlands for example. The average height there is about 6 ft. ½ inches (1.838 meters). No wonder they’ve been dubbed the “tallest” country. But the people on this list would make the average Dutch feel very tiny.

Robert Wadlow, 8 Ft, 11.1 Inches

Robert Wadlow’s impressive height was caused by hyperplasia which produced high levels of human growth hormone. He not only grew to be 8 ft, 11.1 inches (about 272 centimeters), but he also weighed a shocking 439 lbs (199 kilos).

Olivier Richters, 7 Ft, 2 Inches

As far as the Dutch go, Olivier Richters is above average. He’s 7 ft, 2 inches (218 centimeters) and weighs about 419 pounds (190 kilos). Not only is he seriously tall, but he’s also a ruggedly handsome bodybuilder and one of the tallest actors around.

Caroline Welz, 6 Ft, 9 Inches

Caroline Welz worked as a model using the pseudo name Caro, but she’s even more famous for being the tallest woman in Germany. She’s 6 ft, 9 inches (2.10 meters) and weighs 258 pounds (117 kilos) which in this case, is okay for a model.

Broc Brown, 8 Ft, 2 Inches

Broc Brown is 8 ft, 2 inches (206 centimeters) and has been considered one of the tallest teens around. But his ginormous height is the result of a genetic disorder known as Sotos Syndrome, which is extremely rare. But judging from his smile, this giant has a big heart.

Margo Dydek, 7 Ft, 2 Inches

Margo Dydek is 7 ft, 2 inches (219 centimeters) and it’s not due to a medical issue. She got her height from her mom and dad. Her father was 6 ft, 7 inches (2.01 meters) while her mother was 6 ft, 3 inches (1.91 meters), and she’s a total boss on the basketball court.

Leonid Stadnyk, 8 Ft, 5 Inches

Leonid Stadnyk experienced a massive growth spurt after he had brain surgery when he was 13. There was a gland tumor present, which produced a massive secretion of growth hormones.

Sultan Kösen, 8 Ft, 2.82 Inches

Sultan Kösen is considered one of the tallest men in history, and with good reason. But his impressive height has caused him to have a tough time finding clothes that will suit him.

Brahim Takioullah 8 ft, 1 Inch
