According to Don McLean, there's no need for either who or whom:

"...the three men I admire most..."

Here is a quick answer by CalifJim, in [url="http://www.EnglishForward.com/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=42533#42703 "]this[/url] post:
Quick answer: It is appropriate to use "whom" in formal writing after these words (prepositions):

to, from, with, without, among, for, in, by, on, ... (and all other prepositions)

There are other cases when "whom" is appropriate, but that means a very long answer. See the links suggested for more details.

Hello, Hanuman Emotion: smile

"The person whom I admire" is the grammatically correct form.
Also correct is the same structure without the relative pronoun: "The person I admire".

By the way, the subject of your thread is "verb", but your question is about pronouns (relative pronouns): "who" and "whom".

If you'd like to have a more detailed explanation of the use of "who" and "whom", you can have a look at [url="http://www.EnglishForward.com/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=30250 "]this thread[/url].

Hope it helps.
