Our 11 Favorite Giants Of All Time
Too bad the giants in Jack the Giant Slayer don’t include Andre the Giant, Manute Bol, or a shockingly hot 6’8″ Brazilian woman we discovered.

2. AMAZON EVE
As the “World’s Tallest Supermodel,” this German/Dutch beauty could palm your face like a Spalding. At 6′ 8″, she’s also as tall as LeBron James (but not nearly as much of a diva). As a personal trainer, she met a client — a professional dominatrix — who introduced her to the world of the Amazons (tall women who embrace their feminine power … and the men who fetishize them), which she now rules as an international Amazonian celebrity. Oh, and we know you’re wondering, so: 38D.
3. GHEORGE MURESAN / MANUTE BOL (TIE)
In a land of giants (the NBA), Muresan and Bol are the giantest. They both towered over their fellow players, measuring up at a height of 7’ 7”. Bol holds the dubious distinction of having more blocked shots than points scored during his NBA career. (He also had a third-round win over William “The Refrigerator” Perry on Celebrity Boxing.) Muresan enjoyed a storied acting career, playing a ventriloquist in Eminem’s video for “My Name Is,” and a — you guessed it — really tall guy in 1998′s My Giant.
4. JOLLY GREEN GIANT
The JGG first appeared in 1928 … and nobody really noticed. Why? His original incarnation was essentially a scowling, stooping, bearskin-clad anorexic version of the Incredible Hulk. It wasn’t until the word “Jolly” was added to his name in 1958 that the Green Giant mellowed out into the chlorophyll-blooded behemoth who’s all “Ho, Ho, Ho” as he hands out frozen vegetables and whatnot.
