The best competitors might not always be the ones that win. There is an element of luck involved in the game.. you can do everything so well that you are about to be a day ahead of the next player and by some strange stroke of luck the plane gets recalled back to the terminal to pick up the player behind you, who subsequently wins. You can have a delay in the flight, you can misread or misplace a clue.. lots of things can happen.
I consider Rob and Amber the best competitors because of the way they play the game.. focused on winning, not whinning, looking for any angle to give them an advantage, playing the little head games that can mess up their competition, etc. It is a stressful game but they have a great attitude and their heads were always in the game. All this make them great to watch! For similar reasons I like the Beauty Queens.. they mess up more and make mistakes but their attitude is almost alway positive.
Many others trudge along complaing how their competition treat them porly, complaining about this and that and being rather annoying to watch.
