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?”
Jason. Does she like planes ? Is the curvy ? All the things you put on your dating cv #TheUndateables

Does she like planes? Is she curvy? All the important stuff!😂
And no don’t ask her for a commitment on the first date, Jason. Be cool! 👏🏻#TheUndateables

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.
Did you spot us on @Channel4 in #TheUndateables last night?
Jason stopped by our #Birmingham store to pick up a nice #burgundy #suit (the colour of #love)
If you want to go from undateable to dateable – you know where to go 😉🤣 pic.twitter.com/LBMaBCSeZs
