Hollywood ambassador Mike White made his Amazing Race debut last night—did he go down in reality TV flames, or did he register a win for screenwriters everywhere?

Despite White's initial knowledge of the best shortcuts to LAX (which was glossed over in last night's briskly-edited, airport-light premiere), his team is definitely one of this season's underdogs, as he's competing alongside his 68-year-old father Mel. Nevertheless, the White duo persevered to place fourth in the inaugural leg after braving a Switzerland challenge that forced them to transport hundreds of blocks of cheese down a slippery hill. Was it a more arduous task than incorporating School of Rock 2 script notes that insist, "Can't Jack Black have a son like Seth Rogen (or Zac Efron, Y/N) who also wants to rock?" Only White can say for sure.
