"That hair was amazing," he laughed on the press line after the show. "I’m growing it back out. I was 21 or something like that. I looked young, didn’t I? Or I’ve just aged a lot since then. It was pretty dramatic. That was really embarrassing. But you know what it was? It was actually nice to see not where I came from but how far I’ve come and kind of reflecting on that and that moment of going, 'Wow, look at all that’s happened since then.' I feel very, very grateful. It was actually a really good moment."

"You’d think that at first because we’re brother and sister but then I think people kind of go, 'Oh, it’s Julianne and Derek,'" he says. "You know that’s not our style. She’s very honest. She’s very fair. I don’t get that sense from anybody. I haven’t had any Twitter people make comments. It’s all been really, really positive. I think people just kind of know us and know our characters enough to know that would never ever be the case. But I joke around and say, 'Oh yeah…'"

Catch Derek tear up the dance floor with celeb partner Bethany Mota on the next episode of Dancing with the Stars airing Monday at 8/7c on ABC.
