they = HAM? HAF?
I = HAM? HAF?
Is the choice of "number two" the number itself? or is it the second out of several things? (like the second door)
Is the number of choices relevant? are their more than 2 choices? more than 5? more than 10? infinite choices?

Since Flemsneezy has asked the 'essentials', I'll go on ahead.

Is it only you who doesn't want 'them' to pick number two? Do others also take this point of view? If yes, do you and those people have something in common?

Is the choice of number two dangerous or disadvantageous in any way? For 'them'? For you?

Do you personally know 'them'? Are they famous?

Is it only you who doesn't want 'them' to pick number two? There may be others. Do others also take this point of view? If yes, do you and those people have something in common? We probably would.

Is the choice of number two dangerous or disadvantageous in any way? Yes. For 'them'? No. For you? Yes.

Do you personally know 'them'? No. Are they famous? No.

Spoiler: I was thinking about a talent game show in which one contestant from each round who is voted off has to face a Coliseum-like demise.
