Agree. I was watching the ceremony live and was kinda concerned that she actually believed it because I wanted her to have that confidence knowing she had truly beaten a healthy Vika. It wasn't until I read a few ppl on twitter and re-watched the entire thing with her facial expressions that I got it.
She's definitely great at shade that doesn't sound like shade - must be the PR training making sure she has an out in case anyone picks up on it. Even Poland she could argue was merely her being curious about when/where Aga said it rather than a jab.
