Default Notes in Spanish Intermediate 1 - Explanation

I just listened to the first Intermediate podcast, and I am not at all clear why "estoy el chico más contento del mundo" is marked as an error. In the Inspired Beginner podcast 23, on the differences between "ser" and "estar", it is stated that "estar" is used for temporary states, and this is a temporary state, because Ben is happy "las veces que podemos salir y tomar un poquito de aire fresco". Moreover, "estar" is used with feelings, and "contento" is definitely a feeling. So, why is this marked as an error? Can anyone enlighten me? Thank you in advance.
