Donnie Wahlberg welcomed 2020 with a matching tip, his wife Jenny McCarthy revealed on Twitter Wednesday. "@DonnieWahlberg starting 2020 off like the amazing man he is. #ihop #2020tipchallenge," McCarthy tweeted alongside a photo of the couple's $78 bill from an Illinois IHOP, to which Wahlberg added a $2,020 tip and the words "Happy New Year, 2020 Tip Challenge." As USA Today reports, a Michigan server apparently kicked off the aforementioned challenge when she went public with the $2,020 tip someone left her on New Year's Day; that receipt also had "2020 Tip Challenge" written on it. (Wahlberg also once found a fan a kidney match.)
