CENTERVILLE, Ohio — A waitress in Centerville, Ohio, says Chrissy Teigen left her a whopping tip during a recent visit.

Teigen was with her daughter and several others at the Outback Steakhouse on Friday, October 27, Mikayla Scott told 

The 21-year-old said she was nervous to serve the model, but things turned out beyond her expectations.  Scott said she received a $1,000 tip on the $193 bill.

“People kept saying, ‘you are going to get a fat tip.’ I was like, ‘Oh my god, praise the Lord,’” she told

Teigen’s husband, singer John Legend, is from Springfield, Ohio, and was also in the Buckeye State that day, taking in a football game.

Scott said Legend showed up at the restaurant at one point, then left to meet friends at another eatery.
