    Arlington Heights resident Jerry Slowik has big plans for the money he won on the Jeopardy! game show.

    According to the Daily Herald, Slowik's streak of five wins on the show was broken on Thursday, and he plans to use the more than $122,000 he won on the show to move out of his parent's home.

    Slowik hadn't lost on the show since he first appeared on Dec. 26, but he blamed Thursday's last-place finish on a couple of tough categories and a heavy lunch.

    The episodes were originally taped back in October, the newspaper reports.
