A self-described "trivia aficionado" from Minneapolis will try to extend his winning streak to five days on the TV game show "Jeopardy!" on Monday, the Pioneer Press reports.

Drew Horwood, a business systems analyst who works for Cargill, has won four straight days on the Alex Trebek-hosted game show and has earned $70,789 to date.

In a promotional video on the "Jeopardy!" website, Horwood says, "If my opponents think they are expecting Minnesota nice, they've got another think coming."

Horwood hopes to use his winnings for a "dream trip" to New Zealand to take a tour of where the "Lord of the Rings" movies were filmed.

According to the Pioneer Press, the University of Minnesota graduate also used to be an intern for U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

KARE 11 airs "Jeopardy!" weekdays at 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
