Myx TV’s food competition show challenges participants to recreate dishes that they didn’t enjoy at a given restaurant.

“We’re very proud of this accomplishment,” said Myx TV General Manager Miguel Santos.

“Myx TV has been producing reality shows of late that are out of the box and out of the ordinary.  We offer a different palette of storytelling, perspective and experience that appeal across the board and I’m glad that Netflix saw something new and special in one of our works.”

“Eat Your Words” turns the table on internet food critics. Host Kara Birkenstock was quoted by Variety: “In the age of social media, anyone who goes to a restaurant thinks they’re a food expert, and they’re happy to broadcast their picky opinion over the internet.”

The show then challenges the critics to cook the dish they negatively rated and be subjected to the evaluation of a panel of judges.

If they score high, they get a gift certificate to the participating restaurant; if they score low, they have to apologize to the restaurant they critiqued and, well, “eat their words.”

“Eat Your Words” is the first TV series to be picked up by Netflix from Myx TV, a network owned and operated by ABS-CBN International, a subsidiary of ABS-CBN Corporation, which is the largest Filipino media and entertainment network in the world.  It is also the first show picked up by Netflix from any ABS-CBN company.
