Kevin C. Cucumber is the former leader of the Jellyspotters. As his name suggests, he is a sea cucumber, which is a type of marine animal that resembles a cucumber. Kevin is the main antagonist of the episode "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic."
He is a light green sea cucumber. On the top of his head is a set of pale yellow feeding tentacles that looks like a crown, but it is not. The tentacles have an orange outline. He wears blue glasses along with brown shorts and has pink lips.
Kevin is a rude, sadistic, treacherous, ruthless hatred on fans geek, as shown when he lets SpongeBob try out for the Jellyspotters only to humiliate and belittle him. He also lacks consideration for SpongeBob when he does cruel things for him such as jumping off a building and punching himself in the face. Humiliating and belittling others seems to be a habit of his, as many of his biggest fans have ended up trapped in a crevasse at Jellyfish Fields because of him.
He is also ill-tempered, as shown when he is annoyed by SpongeBob completing all of his given tests with ease. Kevin is also greatly frustrated when all of his plans end up with him getting stung by jellyfish. He doesn’t even know anything about jellyfish and was just in the club for the fashion.
Kevin is also ungrateful, as while he acknowledges SpongeBob saving his group from danger and calls him impressive, he still does not let him join because he did not catch a queen jellyfish, even though he admitted that catching a queen jellyfish was a trick. This is a mistake that leads to his followers turning on him.
Kevin was a camper at Camp Coral during his childhood. At some point, Kevin became the leader of the Jellyspotters, an expert jellyfish enthusiast club, because of the fashion. The Jellyspotters then once became so popular that Kevin himself was the mascot of his brand of jellyfish sting ointment.
Having no experience with jellyfish, he was replaced by SpongeBob, who proved to have experience with jellyfish and also saved them from a king jellyfish.
However, SpongeBob quit the Jellyspotters.
