That’s one expensive find.
A teenager who returned Chris Hemsworth’s wallet after finding it at an airport was rewarded $10,000 for the good deed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Boy Scout Tristin Budzyn-Barker was shocked to learn he was in possession of the Australian actor’s wallet.
“I looked up at my mom, and was like ‘Mom! Do you know who this is?” said the 17-year-old teenager on the April 18 airing. “We found Thor’s wallet!”
Budzyn-Barker then wrote a letter to Hemsworth’s business manager, with hopes of just getting tickets to the Ellen show and a recommendation letter to help him become an Eagle Scout. Those wishes were granted and Hemsworth also opened up his wallet and gave Budzyn-Barker the cash.
After learning Budzyn-Barker sold a couple of his horses to save up for college, Ellen gifted him with $10,000 on behalf of Shutterfly. The kind gesture brought the teenager’s parents—who were sitting in the audience—to tears.
Honesty does pay off after all.
