The Undateables: 'Mr Burgundy' and Ron Burgundy have more in common than you’d think

On Monday night (29 January 2018) we sadly bid farewell to Series Eight of The Undateables.

The Channel 4 show has been confirmed for another two seasons, although viewers were left screaming and kicking for more when the four-episode season came to its close.

As many series do, the best episodes are saved to last. Alas, in the final episode of The Undateables we were introduced to Mr Burgundy – and we couldn’t get enough of him.

Viewers of the BAFTA-nominated reality/dating documentary would have already been familiar with love and plane enthusiast Jason.  He first appeared on the show in September 2017.

Viewers would have already become well aware of Jason’s passion for everything purple. However, the extent of his burning red-hot desire came bursting through in the final episode.

Dubbed #MrBurgundy on Twitter and other social media platforms, here’s a look back at Jason’s best one liners in comparison to the only other famous Burgundy in the world, Anchorman’s Ron Burgundy.

Both Jason and Ron have essential wing-men

They know only the most important questions in life

Jason: “Does she like planes? Is she curvy?”

Ron: “Who the hell is Julius Caesar? You know I don’t follow the NBA.”

Both are into suit shopping – in one colour of course.

Charm comes natural to both Ron and Jason

They both play it cool when it comes to finding love

And they are now both happily in love!
