Episode 5742 was broadcast on 29 July 2013, as part of Series 69.

Zarte Siempre played Michelle Furnell, with Zarte Siempre winning 137 – 41. The Dictionary Corner guest was Dan Walker, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Siempre's score of 137 points was the highest ever achieved by a contestant who would not go on to qualify for the finals nor become an octochamp, breaking the record previously held by Frank Mulvey who retired unbeaten in Series 53. Siempre would, however, go on to become an octochamp and finalist in Series 78, effectively handing the record back to Mulvey.
