"America's Tallest Man," Guiness World Record®

My name is George Bell, and I am America's Tallest Man, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. Even though I hold just that one record among the thousands listed, and am known primarily for my height, my physical stature is only a fraction of who I am. I like to believe that I represent everyone who is unique...especially you!

That’s right. Each of us has some special quality that sets us apart from others. Whether you are tall or short, athletic or brainy, adventurous or shy, you possess something that nobody else in the world has, and that is a good thing.

What's different about me? My smile! It’s the biggest in the world! Hopefully one day Guinness will have a record for that as well.

While I definitely – quite literally - stand out in a crowd, I am a regular guy. I go to work, spend time with my friends and family, and I have hobbies and activities I enjoy. Whenever I do go out, though, I tend to attract people with questions, and that’s okay. That’s why I have set up this website to hopefully give you all the information you could possibly want about America’s Tallest Man. Feel free to browse my online home, and if you don’t see a question, drop me a line and I’ll try to answer it here.
