What is Hector’s role in determining the final fate of the competition? He lectures Celia about remaining independent and not interfering with her partner, but ultimately, Hector largely influences the outcome of the competition. Explain this influence.

Hector influences it because of his overbearing, almost abusive role in Celia's life. In the end, he pushes her so far away, he actually drives her to embrace Marco and the circus (as well as all the performers in it) and not WANT to "win," but rather to defeat Hector's ideas of what she should be.
