The Fake Health Inspector is a criminal that pretended to be a health inspector in order to receive free food. He only appeared in the episode Nasty Patty. He was shown on television.
The fake health inspector is a large tan/brown fish with a 5 o'clock shadow. He also appears to be bald, except for a few short hairs on his head, and he has a visible double chin. He also has a scar on his face, and three moles.
He was seen on TV as part of an emergency news broadcast in Bikini Bottom, and he passed through various restaurants posing as a health inspector in order to obtain free food. He was eventually caught and arrested, as announced on the Bikini Bottom News. The announcement showed his picture, telling viewers that "The fake inspector has been captured. If a health inspector comes to your restaurant and he's not this guy, he's real." It is unknown why he didn't just pay, he may have been cheap like Mr. Krabs.
