It depends on what you win. If there are top 3 winners' competition then you will not stand alone.
It is sometimes the competition spirit when even though there is one winner to be selected, the winner will not be alone as he/she has made friends during the competition.
That's life when comes to competition as the outcome may just be a winner. For the winner, if he/she has good rapport with other competitors then he/she will not be standing alone as the competitors will be supporters.
