4. LeBron James: comes in at number four on thefrisky.com’s list, and perhaps for good reason. Seems he once made a Cleveland steak house stay open until 4 in the morning so he could finish his feast. The bill: $800. The tip: $10. Obviously LeBron is waiting to win a championship and use the windfall for tipping…
1. Tiger Woods: came in number four on Zimbio’s scrooge compilation and was cited on every single list. The reason he doesn’t tip: The man worth more than $500 million says it’s because he never carries cash. The Frisky reports Tiger dated “a gal in Las Vegas who had to tip for him whenever they went out.” And according to List of the Day ,Tiger once “pulled a mulligan on a $5 tip, repocketing the money meant for a waitress after realizing he had tipped her earlier in the evening. He was possibly distracted by the $10,000 hand of blackjack he was playing.” Hey, Tiger, we have a tip for you: When it comes to leaving money for those who are serving you, just do it.
Isn’t this just perfect, two of the Miami New Times Top Ten Cheapest Celebrity Tippers happen to two of my favorite athletes, LeBron James and Tiger Woods. How great is that, LeBron James gets an $800 bill and tips $10,just over 1%. That sucks, but making the place stay open until 4am gets a guaranteed snot sandwich. Snipes (may he enjoy his 13 month sabbatical) is going to rip my head off for hating on LeBron once again. Sorry Snipes but you can kill the staff at the Miami New Times… I’m just the messenger.
Crowned the stingiest tipper of them all is of course the man who is having a great year, Tiger Woods. I guess if you are a waitress at IHOP you might get a good tip, if you know what I mean, but serve this cat anywhere else and you are shit out of luck. Is Tiger Dwight from The Office? In one episode Dwight gave the delivery guy exact change stating, “Why tip someone for a job I’m capable of doing myself?” I guess Tiger can give himself a blowjob, because he sure didn’t tip Joslyn James.
Filling out the top five: 5. Jeremy Piven, 3. Barbra Streisand, 2. Madonna.
