If this was her wedding, then it would be different, but this is just a shower. AND, since the invites havn’t went out yet, it is totally feasible to change the date.

Explain to your friend that you still want to host the shower and immediately offer suggested dates. If I were her, I would be grateful that you were throwing me a shower in the first place & have no problem that the date be moved. It’s win-win b/c you both get what you want!

Honestly, a shower just isn’t that important.  I would ask if anyone else can help you out, and host in your place, or pick another date. 

Anyone that would tell you to miss a once in a life time, event you’ve tried to do for 4 years, that you have no control over the date on, isn’t a true friend in my opinion.

This makes me the odd man out here but nevertheless…The rule of thumb that I was taught by my Mom is that you honor the commitment you have already made. Chances are this girlfriend is going to have way more impact on your life than Jeopardy.

I would,write the contestant coordinator and explain that you are hosting a bridal showwer and ask for a different date. You have already been accepted! It’s just a matter of getting a tryout scheduled. It’ll make a great story for you to tell when Alex interviews you when you are on the show.
