Bachelorette alum Joe Amabile, a.k.a. Grocery Store Joe, was one of two contestants eliminated during Monday night’s shocking Dancing With the Stars semi-finals. The lovable reality star and his pro dance partner, Jenna Johnson, opened up to ET’s Katie Krause about their time on the ABC show following their elimination.
"I feel wonderful,” Joe jokes of his elimination. "No, I feel good.”
Jenna adds, "I feel like this is our best night yet, and I’m so happy to go out on this night. I couldn’t be more proud. And I just feel so happy. He conquered it and we made it to the freaking semi-finals, are you kidding?"

Joe quips that his least favorite part of being on DWTS was “performing,” adding, “I don’t know if I had another dance in me, that’s why I was kind of relieved. The bottom three, Alexis [Ren] and Alan [Bersten], and Juan Pablo and Cheryl [Burke], I didn’t want to kick either of them out.”
Joe, however, is content with the timing of his departure from the competition.
"I wouldn’t have changed anything. I’m very happy with it. I was myself the whole time,” he insists. "Do I think I’m the best dancer in the competition? No. Do I have the best smile? Probably… We thought we were going to get eliminated at week one, so I couldn’t have asked for it to go better."
