Opal Matthews is a competitor on Survivor: Caledonia, Survivor: All-Stars, and Survivor: Generations.

In Survivor: Caledonia, Opal played a very ferocious game, trying to gain the favor of the audience by playing villainously and blindsiding her allies, including Percy Burton, Jamie Mathis, and Arlene Sparks. At the merge, this delusion of villainy caught up to her, as after faking an ankle injury to gain favor in the game, she was voted out nearly unanimously.

Despite gaining a negative reaction from the fans, the producers brought Opal back in Survivor: All-Stars to improve her image. She desired to play a better game and re-gain the favor of America, and succeeded in following through with several alliances. Since she was not playing with her former fuel-to-the-fire partner Gabriel Underwood, she was far tamer up until the merge, where she began to pursue a blindside against Cesar, which backfired as the entire merged Tribe voted her out unanimously.

Opal returned as a part of the first generation Varanasi Tribe in Survivor: Generations. She began the game with Gabriel Underwood, but as everyone recognized that he was poisonous to the Tribe, he was voted out first, leaving Opal alone in the game. She remained immune through to the merge after the first Tribal Council and teamed up with the anti-winners alliance. This time, Opal became one of the fan favorites in the game by going against the predictable alliance and avenging her fallen allies. However, her gameplay was still heavily criticized in the end, as she flipped to work with Melissa Becnel and Tony Burns, two former winners, to gain favor from the jury...only to crash and burn with one jury vote in the Final Tribal Council.
