The Amazing Race Wiki

Peter Vesterbacka and Thy "Anna" Nguyen are a Mentor and Mentee team on Amazing Race Suomi 1.


Peter Vesterbacka, 55, & Thy "Anna" Nguyen, 18 Mentor and Mentee

"I've always shied away from the idea that it's enough to be involved and let's see where it goes. If we start doing something, we go all out."

Peter Vesterbacka is an overzealous and energetic entrepreneur who has been involved in many things. He is perhaps best known for his career at the game company Rovio as a developer of Angry Birds games. Since leaving Rovio, Peter has been involved in many things, including a tunnel connection between Helsinki and Tallinn. His partner in the Amazing Race Finland is his mentor 18-year-old Thy "Anna" Nguyen.

Peter got to know Anna through his part-owned company Finest Future. The company's goal is to deliver foreign students to Finnish upper secondary schools. Anna is originally from Vietnam and is now attending upper secondary school in Mänttä. Anna's future plans include heading to Aalto University or studying business and management in Tampere.

Fun fact: For Peter, the worst thing about the race would be that he wouldn't realize some obvious task.[1]
