Jason Genao’s Height Was an Interesting Point of Discussion A Few Years Ago

Genao’s performance on the American teen comedy-drama streaming television series, ‘On My Block’, sparked very interesting discussions on social media at the time, particularly about race-related issues, and teenagers being able to find comfort in their skin. But like every other television show, fans also focused on the physical looks of their favorite actors.

Jason Genao was particularly highlighted for his cute, smallish appearance. Compared with the average American man, he appears to be pretty short. The Centers for Diseases Prevention and Control (CDC) carried out a survey in 2015, aiming to find out how tall American men were on average. Their findings showed that males of American nationality aged 20 years and above stood at an average height of 5 feet and 9 inches.

Well, at 5 feet 2 inches, Jason Genao stands nearly 7 inches shorter than the average American man going by the CDC research. This obviously means that he falls into
the ‘below-average height category’ for men, as he is already 25 years old.

Jason Genao’s Height Compared With Fellow ‘On My Block’ Stars

As earlier stated, the ‘On My Block’ television series focuses mainly on the lives of some atypical youths, among which is Ruben “Ruby” Martinez, played by Jason. The series also features Sierra Capri, Diego Tinoco, Brett Gray, and Ronni Hawk. It was set in Southern California and has received plenty of accolades for addressing real issues among teenagers.

All that aside though, how tall is Jason when compared with his costars? Is he taller or shorter than the others? Find out about that below.

American actress Sierra Capri, Jason’s co-star in ‘On My Block’, is best known for playing the role of Monse Finnie in the series. Prior to this role, Sierra played a feature as an extra on the set of the Black American movie ‘Hidden Figures’ and has also gone on to feature in movies like ‘American Skin’ and ‘A Great Day in Harlem’.

The Baltimore-born actress perfectly played the role of the devoted friend in the show ‘On My Block’, a friendship that continued between her and Jason after the show was jettisoned. Meanwhile, both actors are only two years apart in age, with Jason being the older one, however, Sierra is the taller of the two. She currently stands at 5 feet 6 inches as opposed to Jason’s 5 feet 2.

The height gap between the both of them measures as high as 4 inches (10.16 centimeters).

Jason Genao’s Height Vs Julio Macias’ Height

Julio Arturo Macias’s electrifying portrayal of Oscar Diaz on ‘On My Block’ earned him two
Image Award nominations. Unlike the other cast members of the popular series, the 34 -year-old Mexican actor didn’t gain popularity through the series as he had been acting way before its release.

You might readily recall his character as Pete Astudillo from the Selena-based biographical
television show, ‘Selena: The Series.

Julio Macias stands over 6 feet tall. His exact height is measured to be 6 feet 1 inch, and
about 1.85 meters or 72.8 inches. This places Jason precisely 11 inches shorter than his former co-star.

Jason Genao’s Height Compared with Brett Gray’s

27-year-old Brett Gray is a singer and songwriter in addition to being an actor. He famously played Jamal Turner on the Netflix original series ‘On My Block’ with Jason and the rest. After this, he landed a bigger role as Dal R’El in the Paramount+ and Nickelodeon joint animated series, ‘Star Trek: Prodigy, and has gone on to feature in numerous other television and film productions.

When it comes to his height, the Pennsylvania native stands about 5 feet 7 inches tall. While Brett isn’t anywhere near tall/average (by CDC standards), he still towers over his former co-actor by nearly 5 inches. Not that their height difference mattered the slightest bit since both actors were paid exactly the same amount for their appearance on the show.

So far, Jason Genao appears to be the shortest cast member of the series as nearly every member he has been compared to dwarfs him in height.

Jason Genao’s Weight and Body Measurements

By now you already know Jason is short. His 5 feet 2 inches height also makes him out to be a person with a really small physique. But what does Genao weigh? And does his height affect his weight in any way?

According to various websites that have reported on Jason’s body statistics in the past
few months, he weighs about 62 kg or 136 pounds. Judging by his height and weight, the actor’s body mass index is calculated to be 24. This falls within the healthy BMI range of 18 to 25.

The ‘Logan’ star has not revealed any particular workout routine he engages in, nor has he divulged any diet plan which might contribute to his healthy weight. Meanwhile, his other body measurements such as his chest size, biceps, and waist size are currently unavailable as he is yet to update his bio-data.

However, other details about Jason Genao’s physical attributes that are worth knowing include the fact that he has a slim body build, dark brown eyes, and dark brown hair. Among his distinctive features are his deep-set eyes, pointed chin, and a wide smile.
