YouTuber Gabi DeMartino has gone viral after a very generous tip to her Domino’s delivery driver, giving an almost 10,000% bump on the cost of the pizza, a whopping $2,020.
Being a YouTube star can result in a very healthy income, and some like to share the wealth around. Notably, MrBeast has made his entire channel revolve around giving away huge amounts of cash for completing wacky challenges.
It’s obvious that giving away money can make for great content, so combining this generosity for the purpose of YouTube videos is a win-win for all involved.
Especially, if you’re the lucky pizza delivery guy who gets $2,000 tip on a $22 delivery. DeMartino, whose channel ‘Fancy Vlogs by Gab’ boasts over 3 million subscribers, was behind the incredibly generous surprise.
With an estimated net worth of $1.5 million, many of Gabi’s videos focus on her spending a lot of money on herself, splashing out on designer shopping sprees.
But, proving she has a giving side too, she decided to give the massive $2,020 tip to a college student working as a Domino’s delivery driver in Pennsylvania.
The delivery driver, Nyles Harris told WFMZ, “I didn’t really believe it until I got back to my car,” and that his boss was happy for him to keep the tip, which he used to pay off debt, bills and gave some to his mom.
Apparently DeMartino was inspired to give the massive tip by a Facebook post, which suggested a $2,020 tip to reign in 2020.
“I completely overpaid the pizza guy because new year, new me, and I just want to give back,” Gabi explained. “There are so many things that I feel guilty of, I just want to feel like a better person.”
Considering the video has racked up almost half a million views, it’s possible that Gabi made much of the $2,000 back from the ad revenue.
Gabi’s next video saw her go even more viral, as she went on a ‘no-budget’ shopping spree. Although the video clocked up over a million views, it also saw some backlash come her way for the extravagant spending, and Gabi has since disabled the comments.
