Bridgette Jordan is the Guinness Book of Records holder of the title of World’s Shortest Living Woman. How tall is the Sandoval, Illinois, college cheerleader?

Bridgette Jordan World's Shortest Woman Record HolderThe 22-year-old Kaskasia College student stands just 27-inches tall. That means that Bridgette Jordan faces a lot of challenges, but she has not let any of them stop her. After her title became official she said, “I believe that everyone should be confident in themselves.” She is certainly plenty confident participating not only in cheerleading, but also in dancing in addition to all her duties as a busy college student attending classes.

The previous world record holder in this category was Elif Kocaman of Kadirli, Turkey, who stands just 2 feet, 4.5 inches. Jordan is a mere 2 feet, 3 inches tall. Interestingly, she also holds another world record title with her brother Brad. Together they are the World’s Shortest Siblings. Brad is 38 inches tall, which means he is almost a foot taller than his sister. Majewski osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II is the reason both Bridgette and Brad Jordan are so short.

Unfortunately for the spunky cheerleader, she may not hold the world record of World’s Shortest Woman for long because a 2-foot-tall girl will turn 18 in December, and she will likely become the new world record holder.
