Ewing and his misbehaving family of millionaires. The Dallas-Fort Worth metro area is home to 7,539,711 people and is the ninth-most populous city in the U.S. There are 2,816 billionaires in the world and the U.S. and China are home to more than half of them. The Dallas metropolitan area is also home to 28 billionaires on the list of the richest people on the planet.
