A server at the IHOP in St. Charles got quite the surprise Wednesday when actor and New Kids on the Block performer Donnie Wahlberg rang in the new year by leaving a $2,020 tip.

Wahlberg's wife, "Masked Singer" judge Jenny McCarthy, posted a picture of their $78 lunch bill Wednesday on Twitter with $2,020 written on the tip line.

 

"@DonnieWahlberg starting 2020 off like the amazing man he is. #ihop #2020tipchallenge," McCarthy tweeted.

Wahlberg wrote "Happy New Year" and "2020 Tip Challenge" with a smiley face at the bottom of the receipt.

Wahlberg and McCarthy live in St. Charles. McCarthy was born in Evergreen Park and attended Mother McAuley High School in Chicago.
