On tonight's episode of Hell's Kitchen, the restaurant opens its doors to host a welcome home party for a returning US Marine named Otis James (hasn't this show had enough of Marines?) The two teams meet with James' wife, and must create two appetizers and an entrée that will meet her approval. The team whose menu his wife will choose will be treated to a sky-high adventure, while the losing team are forced to clean and decorate the dining room for the party.

Hell's Kitchen host Chef Gordon Ramsay is determined to make this special, he says, so he's bringing in wife Tana Ramsey to help direct the losing team on how to plan a party. During dinner service, one team can't keep up with the orders, ending up sending cold food, understandably causing Ramsay to blow a fuse. As usual, one chef will be sent home at the end of the episode.

On the last episode of Hell's Kitchen, we saw some entertaining partnerships, including a surprisingly fruitful one between rivals Tennille and Suzanne that resulted in the girls' winning the sausage challenge (no extra point for double entendres unfortunately for the guys). "Gentlemen, clearly comfortable with your meats!" Ramsay told the guys when he found out that all the men had prior experience with sausages.

The men upped the ante on the service, however, with the likes of Tom Green, Drew Lachey and Kristy Swanson as among the diners. In the end, Lovely was booted out of Hell's Kitchen for being useless. The 23-year-old camp chef from Chicago, Illinois received her third nomination for failing to keep track of the orders. "If people were named for their cooking, her name wouldn't be Lovely, it would be Useless."

Catch Hell's Kitchen tonight 8pm on Fox.
