Katariina Kaitue, 56 & Benjamin Harima, 29

Mother and son

"We will soon have known each other for 30 years. When you know that you love and care about the other person, it's easier to throw yourself into difficult moments."

Actress Katariina Kaitue has appeared in countless roles in theatre, films and TV series. He has been a regular actor at the Finnish National Theatre since 1991. Katariina dives into the Amazing Race with her firstborn son, Benjamin. 29-year-old Benjamin works for the Finnish Defence Forces.

The mother and son last travelled together about ten years ago, so they may have to get used to the journey together. The stress of adventure can cause the duo's tongues to sing in a way that can scare bystanders. But don't worry, it's just that Katariina and Benjamin's family is used to talking directly about everything. Thus, unaccustomed people may mistake the situation for an argument, although for Katariina and Benjamin it is a normal conversation.

Fun fact: Katariina is nervous beforehand whether she will start treating her adult son like a toddler.[1]
