Episode 6732 was broadcast on 18 December 2017, and was the third quarter-final of Series 77.

John Cowen played Michael Pfeffer, with John Cowen winning 105 – 49. The Dictionary Corner guest was Rufus Hound, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In a rare error, Nick Hewer incorrectly described Cowen as the #4 seed during the introduction when he was actually the #3 seed; the former title should, in fact belong to Noel McIlvenny.
