Most servers in the restaurant industry rely heavily on tips to make a decent wage, so a ridiculously big tip can truly make your entire month.
Well, one server at Outback Steakhouse in Centerville, Ohio had the tip of a lifetime when model and TV star Chrissy Teigen left a very generous bonus after dining at the restaurant.
According to local media outlet Dayton.com, Teigen, her daughter Luna, and a few friends ate at the restaurant on Friday, and was seated in 21-year-old Mikayla Scott’s section.
“She walked in with all her glam,” Scott told Dayton.com. “I was so nervous I was going to do something wrong.”
Apparently, Scott didn’t do a damn thing wrong, because Teigen left her a $1,000 tip on a bill for $193.81. A 20 percent tip on that tab is around $38.
Teigen and her husband John Legend have both been outspoken in the past for her love for the restaurant’s Bloomin Onion appetizer, which pretty much everyone can relate to, because the deep-fried onion is truly a magnificent creation.
Scott tells Dayton.com that she and her husband, who works in the kitchen at Outback, are going to use the extra cash to fix up their cars in need of repair. However, Scott made sure to pay it forward, and shared some of the tip with her coworkers that night.
