Cohabiting couple

"Oh, what will we use the prize pool for if we win? For our wedding."

Actor Jukka Rasila is known to Finns especially for his many comedy roles in films and TV series - both as voice and face. Jugi, who also enjoys theatre stages, underwent a big change in his life during the coronavirus pandemic when he met Mirva Nieminen in 2020. The love quickly burst into flames, and Jukka and Mirva have been engaged for almost three years now. They also do some work together on writing and training. Mirva is also a customer service and sales professional.

Now, the couple faces a big challenge as they have decided to go to the Amazing Race together. In addition to being a big challenge, it is also a new challenge, as Jukka and Mirva have never travelled together outside Finland before. However, they have a clear survival tactic for Amazing Race: The duo plans to break down the missions into small parts and talk them together for faster resolution. In addition, Jukka and Mirva firmly believe that they have the ability to withstand pressure and control their mind. Time will tell how the highly competitive couple will fare when the time comes.

Fun fact: Jukka hates natural waters, Mirva finds disgusting food issues difficult.[1]
