A "booby prize" is a prize given as a joke to the last-place finisher in a race or competition, according to Oxford. The imagery of the attractive blond woman suggests that the joke here is not a last place prize, although blond women finishing last is its own known joke line, but a prize based on looks or appearance with a sexual connotation toward breasts or their slang, "boobs".
