"He's a different sort," Neil told Billboard about George. "We had our times together. For music fans, one of the tasks is me and Boy George do a song together. It actually turned out really good, so I can't wait for everybody to see it." Neil who is competing for the non-profit Keep Memory Alive, helping people suffering from Alzehimer's disease, says competing on the show was an eye-opening experience. "The hard part about the whole thing is the hours that you spend. You are up at 5 a.m. and don’t get back to the hotel at 10 o'clock at night," he said. "But everybody was so cool and got along. Jon Lovitz and I bonded. We had lunch every day and became good friends."
