RuPaul's Drag Race Wiki

Jaremi Carey, formerly known as Phi Phi O'Hara, is a drag artist, performer, cosplayer, music artist, Twitch streamer 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.

Over the years, Jaremi has indicated on multiple occasions that he no longer associates with the name "Phi Phi O'Hara" and now instead goes by his online Handle for Twitch 'JustJaremi' or rather Jaremi, and prefers to be referred to as such. Jaremi also goes by He/Him pronouns.[1]

Name Origin

Jaremi formerly went by 'Phi Phi O'Hara' which originated from "Phoenix Matthews", his original drag name. He then changed to "Phoenix O'Hara" after adopting the Haus name from his drag mother, Season 10 finalist Asia O'Hara. He later changed to "Phi Phi" as this is what Dida Ritz had nicknamed him. Since his final run on the show Jaremi dropped the drag name and now goes by either Jaremi or JustJaremi.

Drag Family

Being Asia O'Hara's drag daughter, Jaremi 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, Jaremi was shown as the "villain" of the season, often acting angrily, attempting to sabotage or set doubt in other contestants heads, and often harshly insulting the abilities of fellow drag queens. This led to a brutal attacks from fans against him during and after the show, where overall he ended as runner-up to nemesis castmate Season 4 winner Sharon Needles. After 5 years, Jaremi returned for All Stars 2 in hopes of redeeming himself for his actions in Season 4. Despite his more positive general attitude towards other contestants, he was quickly shown to have reverted back to his old mindset and tactics. He 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 his place.
