Whoever and whomever can be judged using the he/him rule.
Whoever when it is the subject and whomever when it is the object in that clause.

Rephrasing the sentence: you should strive to emulate he/him or they/them
What goes well here? He or him? They or them?
Him and them are correct and hence whomever is the right choice.

What's wrong with D? It removes the unnecessary "Whoever you are" and the "awkward" whomever...

guess it deviates a bit from original statement and changes the meaning?

'those people' is incorrect. Ask yourself which people? We have no idea. The noun itself is missing here.

'I know you follow cyclists on Tour de France. You should emulate those you most admire. ' - Those is used to replace nouns that are father away in space and time(literally and/or figuratively).

Well actually it is clear which people - people you most admire ("you most admire" relates to people)

I guess since it is not the official GMAC question I just can admit defeat in my attempts to understand the logic of it and move on=)
