Tom Selleck drops $2 grand tip at NYC restaurant

0

Tom Selleck is one generous guy.

The “Magnum, P.I.” actor left a $2020 tip on a bill of just over $200 at Elio’s restaurant in New York.

Selleck’s benevolent gesture was revealed by his “Blue Bloods” co-star Donnie Wahlberg.

“I found out that my TV Dad #TomSelleck has generously accepted the #2020TipChallenge at Elios Upper East Side!” Wahlberg wrote in a tweet on Wednesday. “Love ya dad. I didn’t start it but I’m proud to be part of it. To those who gave even the smallest extra amount this year — THANK YOU.”

Wahlberg also posted a note from Selleck that read: “I am honoring my friend Donnie Wahlberg’s ‘tip challenge’ with my sincere hope for a better 2020.”

Wahlberg, whose parents both worked in the service industry, is known for dropping huge tips. On January 1, Wahlberg’s wife, Jenny McCarthy, shared a photo of an IHOP receipt in which he had tipped $2,020. And last month he gifted the same amount at a Massachusetts restaurant.

James Corden and Adele have also taken part in the ‘tip challenge’ which began when a server in Michigan, Danielle Franzoni, received a tip of $2,020, on a bill of $23.

Tom Selleck’s reps did not reply for comment.
