The difference for getting contacted based on a average height and 6'2 is 1-2 percent which means that women don't care about height
But I doubt that the graph is real since 6'8 is giant looking and really tall men have been criticized by researchers
From a study
"These shifting preferences in SDR may serve to maintain relationships where the man is taller
than the woman while simultaneously avoiding choosing mates who are outside the typical population
range. This would be advantageous if being outside the typical range for any given morphological
trait is a cue to developmental hardships or risk for chronic health problems (e.g.,
Park, Faulkner, & Schaller, 2003), such as unusually tall height resulting from disorders such
as pituitary gigantism or Marfan’s syndrome. For example, by preferring a smaller SDR, tall women
do not select mates who are outside this typical range of variation"
