Has Anyone Seen This Billboard?

A couple of days ago I passed a billboard which I am having a difficult time understanding. It's on Route 1 North in South Brunswick and it's right by a car wash (I'm not good with landmarks). The billboard simply has a picture of one woman and it says something like, "Sunita Singh is Right!" and in the bottom corner in tiny lettering is "The Marriage Ref."

Okay, I know The Marriage Ref is a TV show, so is she a contestant? And, if she is, did the show put up the billboard to advertise or did she shell out the cash for her own cause (poor investment). What is she right about? The fact that her billboard is terrible? I'm so confused.

Perhaps if I watched the show I would understand this bit of advertising, but as of right now I am stumped.

If it turns out she put it up on her own dime, I say "Bravo!" I don't understand it at all, but it's awesome. Does anyone know the rates for a billboard cause I have one I want to put up. It's just a big picture of me with an eye-patch and it says, "Tennis anyone?" People will just go around, "Hey, you see that tennis guy billboard on 95? What's the deal with that?" I am not sure why, but I would enjoy that.

After a quick Google search, first rate I found for billboards was about $5.5 Billion a year...

Upon closer examination, I saw it was really $700-$2500 a month.

If it is for the Marriage Ref. People go on teh show and both couples tell their sides of the story and whoever the celebrity judges are that night for the show (different judges every week) they decide if the Husband is right or if the wife is right. I don't go into Brunswick so I have no idea if she has been on the show but thats mainly what the "is she right" is all about.

I just saw this tonight and was also wondering what it is about! I've watched the show...but thought it was not on anymore. And I don't remember seeing her on it. Unless it is one that hasn't aired yet...and maybe she was judged right and made her husband put the billboard up. Just a thought.

Via Wikipedia...

"Several major improvements have been made for season two including having the couples live in the studio to interact with the celebrities. The studio audience will vote of which of the show's three winners is "The Rightest" of the night and that person wins $25,000 and a billboard in their hometown declaring they are right.[citation needed]"

Yeah I see the same billboard. I don't know what she's right about but she looks like she just ate a garlic sandwich.
