Chrissy Teigen Gives Waitress $1,000 Tip: Full Story & Details

Waitresses and busboys often rely on tips to help pay the bills, so getting a generous tip now and again can make a world of difference. One lucky server who worked at Outback Steakhouse in Centerville, Ohio recently got the surprise of her life when a famous patron gave her a $1,000 tip.

‘I was so nervous I was going to do something wrong’

According to server Mikayla Scott, in a statement with a local media outlet,, model and TV star Chrissy Teigen chose to dine at her section at the restaurant with her daughter, Luna, and a few friends.


“She walked in with all her glam,” Scott described, according to the local publication, adding, “I was so nervous I was going to do something wrong.” It would appear that she didn’t do anything wrong, as she ended up being granted a $1,000 tip from the starlet on a bill for $193.81, essentially a 516% tip!

Reportedly, Scott shared her tip with some of the other workers. She and her husband, Jordan, another Outback employee, will also use their portion for car repairs.
