Nicknamed "Joe The Grocer," the 31-year-old grocery store owner from Chicago, IL, competed for Becca Kufrin's heart on The Bachelorette's fourteenth season as well as appeared on Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season this summer.
"Got emailed that Sharna's DWTS partner is Bobby Bones. Those people would know better than me. Regardless, Joe is definitely on DWTS," Carbone wrote on Twitter.
Joe got eliminated by Becca on Night 1 of The Bachelorette, but his bright smile, thick accent, and warm personality won Bachelor Nation over immediately.
Joe therefore decided to give love another shot by dating on Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season, which is currently airing on ABC. Joe paired off with Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s ex, Kendall Long, early into the process, and a week before the finale is set to air, the couple is still going strong.
Carbone claims Bachelor in Paradise host Chris Harrison will officially announce Joe's Dancing with the Stars participating when Paradise's reunion special airs next week on September 11.
"It basically came about during the BIP reunion taping last week," Carbone wrote in his blog.

Kendall and Joe went through some major ups and downs in Paradise, with Kendall taking brief interest in John Graham as well as Leo Dottavio. Kendall, however, chose to be with Joe after drama subsided, and fans have loved Joe's patience and persistence.
So are Joe and Kendall still together? And if so, will she approve of his alleged casting onDancing with the Stars?
According to Carbone, Joe and Kendall broke up on Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise but they resumed their relationship in the real world. Kendall from Los Angeles, CA, and Joe have reportedly been making a long-distance relationship work.
"They actually showed footage at the [reunion] taping of Kendall showing up in Chicago 'asking' to talk to Joe and work things out, then we see them on stage, and they say they're dating long distance," Carbone revealed.
"Chris Harrison actually tells Joe he'd like to 'help' him with their long distance dating issue and asked him if he'd like to be in LA for an extended period of time. When Joe said yes, Chris offered him a spot on DWTS... kinda unreal that a dude that was eliminated night 1 of this show has gotten so much 'fame' out of this. Pretty crazy. Good for him, I guess."
