Anyone that goes out to eat in the U.S. knows that part of the experience includes giving the server a tip at the end of the meal. While there are many discussions and arguments regarding what the right amount is, most people agree that if you’ve received pleasant or even exceptional service, you can give above the standard value of a tip. Anytime a celebrity visits a restaurant, they attract a significant amount of attention, and whether it’s fair or not, there is also extra scrutiny when it comes to how much they tip, as most celebrities are also quite wealthy. While there have been some less than flattering stories of celebrities leaving a poor tip or none at all, these celebrities went way above and beyond and gave their servers a seriously generous tip.
A trend that was quite popular during that year, the 2020 Tip Challenge had a lot of people leaving tips of $20.20 on small bills, but Donnie Wahlberg truly took things to the next level when he left a $2020 tip on a bill of $78.45. He left a nice message that read “Happy New Year, 2020 Tip Challenge,” as well as a nice smiley face. We’re sure this tip left a smile on his sever’s face!
While dining at Carew Inn, located in Wales, in 2009, actor Russell Crowe enjoyed chicken and mussels along with the rest of his party. While the final bill came out to $313, Crowe decided to leave an additional $783 tip for the waiters that had served them. They even apparently engaged in a bit of karaoke, which we’re sure was fun for everyone to witness.
