Why "unrestrained enthusiasm" is not an option?

That is a tempting answer, since "unrestrained enthusiasm" could arguably mean enthusiasm done without any care for attention. But unrestrained enthusiasm sounds like something that would get attention regardless, and doesn't really match the meaning of "detached." So while "unrestrained enthusiasm" could be an answer, it's an answer that is at least somewhat flawed, and is certainly not the best answer.
