Episode 5749 was broadcast on 13 August 2013, as part of Series 69.

Dylan Taylor played Leone Mitchell, with Dylan Taylor winning 129 – 22. The Dictionary Corner guest was Gloria Hunniford, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Notably, Taylor became the first male to score 36 points after 2 rounds, and became the first person in Countdown history to score the theoretical maximum number of points in any "half", with 2 nines and 10 points from the first numbers game.

The audience member who solved the conundrum was Taz Bhuta, who would appear as a contestant later in Series 69.
