"You have to pretend they're not there," he says. "It was definitely a weird experience, but I got used to it."
Cameras, of course, were the least of the twins' worries. After all, they were competing for $100,000 and the chance to become a guest lecturer at the Make Up Forever Academies in Paris and New York.
Neither could get into detail about the competition, though Eric says everyone on the show got along really well.
"I think we all bonded really quickly," he says. "There was no drama; we all had fun hanging out and talking. It was kind of like summer camp."
Derek agrees. He also told us that it's been incredibly difficult keeping his mouth shut about the show around friends and family.
"It's definitely hard for me to keep quiet," he says. "But I want people to be surprised and on the edge of their seat when they're watching the show. I want my friends and family to be surprised with the outcome."
Whatever that outcome is, Derek knows that his family will be proud.
"They're very supportive of anything I do. My dad wanted me to be a director, or somebody in the movies, and I think he's very proud that I'm diving into the movie industry."
Watch Derek and Eric Garcia on season three of Face Off, premiering Tuesday, August 21 at 9 p.m. on Syfy.
