Phi Phi O'Hara was the stage name of Jaremi Carey, a drag queen, performer, cosplayer, music artist, and one of the Season 4 runners-up of RuPaul's Drag Race, as well as one of the All Stars 2 contestants (placed 7th), being sent home by Alyssa and Tatianna.

Phi Phi O'Hara was originally named "Phoenix Mathews" ("Phoenix" coming from X-Men's Phoenix's name, her rise after childhood bad times and friends saying that she brought fire to stage while performing; "Mathews" coming from performer Tersa Mathews' last name). She then changed to "Phoenix O'Hara" after her drag mother Season 10 finalist Asia O'Hara's last name. However, to avoid being confused with Season 3 contestant Phoenix, she changed from "Phoenix" to "Phi Phi" (the nickname that castmate Dida Ritz gave her).
Being Asia O'Hara's drag daughter, Phi Phi O'Hara is the drag granddaughter of Josephine O'Hara, drag great-granddaughter of Sweet Savage and drag sister of Kylee O'Hara Fatale. She also has a drag daughter called Kara O'Hara.

During Season 4, Phi Phi O'Hara was shown as the "villain" of the season, often acting angrily, attempting to sabotage or set doubt in other contestants heads. This led to a brutal attacks from fans against her during and after the show, where overall ended as runner-up to nemesis castmate Season 4 winner Sharon Needles. After 5 years, O'Hara returned for All Stars 2 in hopes of redeeming herself for her actions in Season 4. Despite her more positive general attitude towards other contestants she was quickly shown to have reverted back to her old mindset and tatics. She was eventually eliminated in Episode 5 by Alyssa Edwards and Tatianna, who both won the challenge and the right to return to the competition in her place.
