Gordon Ramsay, Hell's Kitchen

Justin Stephens / FOX

If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen!

Or Gordon Ramsay will yell at you to get out, as he does to multiple chefs in our exclusive sneak peek at the new season of Hell's Kitchen!

The celebrity chef's hit Fox reality series returns for its 12th season tonight at 8 p.m. and it's looking like it will be the toughest season ever.

We've got your exclusive first look at Kitchen's reopening, which includes Ramsay previewing the new season and glimpses of some of the special guests appearing this season, including Minnie Driver and Wolfgang Puck!

"When chefs get hot-tempered, they tend to throw trays, skillets, pans or kick things," Ramsay says, just as a montage of contestants, and not the famously aggressive chef, losing their cool in the kitchen plays. However, one of Season 12's 20 competing chefs decides to tell Ramsay he loves him and Ramsay's reaction is a pure delight.

"It's tough because I've raised the bar," Ramsay previews. And you can see just how tough the competition, and Ramsay's critiques ("You're an idiot!" he screams in one terrfied chef's face) will be in our exclusive preview above!

Originally set to air on Fridays, Fox decided to move Kitchen to Thursdays at 8 p.m., pushing American Idol's results show back an hour. Greg Kinnear's freshman drama Rake will now air on Fridays.

Hell's Kitchen premieres  tonight at 8 p.m. on Fox.
