This. It was a smile, or maybe at worst a smirk, but she looked sorry about the second Mirai almost burst into tears. I think she was happy she won, perhaps at worst in a gloating way, but I think she was sorry (not to have won but for her reaction) when she saw how Mirai took it.

As for the rest, I also feel bad for Mirai but don't think the result was wrong- at best she should have been 5th (I'd have debatably placed Hicks and Sujan below her based on PCS). I do very much hope she will not quit.
