Recently, Derek‘s sister Julianne opened up about whether she’ll be giving her brother special treatment.

“I think a lot of people are really concerned about that,” Julianne told TV Guide. “Maybe I’ll even be more honest with Derek because he’s my brother… It’d be different if it was like my mom or something. I don’t want to hurt my mom’s feelings. But it’s Derek. We’re friends. We’re buddies. We’re honest with each other. We were on tour this summer. We’ve definitely called each other out on our stuff. If anything, I might be even harder on him.”

Derek Hough Didn't Know Who Bethany Mota Was Before 'DWTS'

Bethany Mota heads into the dance studio in a hot pink tee for Dancing With The Stars in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon (September 13).

The 18-year-old YouTube guru joined partner Derek Hough inside after stopping to say hi to fans outside.

“As I’m sure you know, Bethany Mota is my partner. I’ll be honest — I didn’t know exactly who she was. After producers told me she was my partner, I looked her up, and she’s amazing,” Derek blogged for his TVGuide column. “I’m in awe at what she’s accomplished at such a young age. She’s actually the youngest partner I’ve ever had too. She’s just an absolute sweetheart. I love what she stands for and what she’s built — and that her fans call themselves the Motavators! It’s pretty remarkable what she’s done when you think about it.”

He added, “Our first dance is the jive and Bethany’s doing great. She doesn’t have any dance experience except for the usual dance classes you take when you’re a kid. She’s a real natural and I think it’s gonna be a great premiere.”

Bethany Mota Talks Growing Up Digital With 'Seventeen's October 2014 Issue - She's On The Cover!

Bethany Mota Talks Growing Up Digital With 'Seventeen's October 2014 Issue - She's On The Cover!

Bethany Mota shows off her confidence on the October 2014 issue of Seventeen mag, on news stands September 16th.

The 18-year-old YouTube guru and Dancing With The Stars competitor opened up about being herself, finding confidence and all about her YouTube vids. Check it:

On why she started her YouTube videos: “It was so cool seeing girls being positive and spreading happiness. At first, I made beauty videos that were like everyone else’s – I’d try to act perfect. But then I realized it might be more fun if I was just myself. So I showed my silly side and kept in the bloopers. I liked those videos way more, and people appreciated that realness.”

On growing up digital: “I think it’s taught me to be a lot more self-motivated and has taught me how to encourage myself and not rely on a teacher or a boss telling me what to do. I’m my own boss.My biggest thing to overcome has been not being afraid to be different. It’s safer to do what everyone else is doing, but it pays off way more to be yourself.”

On her advice for other girls who are trying to find their place in the world: “You have to be your own motivator! A lot of teens say they’re bored. Before I got on YouTube, I’d say the same thing. But there is always something you can be doing. If YouTube isn’t your thing, maybe it’s a sport or something else you’re good at. There’s always something you can be the best at – you just have to look for it.”
