Chrissy Teigen Surprises Outback Steakhouse Waitress With A $1,000 Tip

"Oh my god, praise the Lord."

Model Chrissy Teigen is no stranger to making people's days. Whether it's sharing adorable moments of her daughter Luna or discretely paying for a stranger's beauty school tuition, the model and Lip Sync Battle host pays it forward. Most recently, Teigen gave one Ohio waitress, what is safe to assume, one of the most memorable shifts of her life when she left a very generous tip after dining at an Outback Steakhouse south of Dayton. 


On October 27, Mikayla Scott was working at the Centerville location when Teigen was seated in her section just before closing. Scott told that she always wanted to wait on a famous person, but said she was nervous about messing up in front of noted Bloomin' Onion fan. 

"She walked in with all her glam," Scott told "I was so nervous I was going to do something wrong." 

But for Scott, the biggest surprise of the night came after Teigen left, and the 21-year-old saw that she had been tipped $1,000 on a $193.81 check.  

"I was like, 'Oh my god, praise the Lord,'" she told the Associated Press.

Scott said she and her husband, who works in the kitchen at Outback, plan to use the money to repair their two cars. But, in a move of which we think Teigen would approve, also made sure to share the tip with her co-workers.
