Bass Pro Shops founder and CEO Johnny Morris again ranked on Forbes' annual list of the wealthiest people in the world.

Morris, 73, placed No. 705 on the list, with an estimated net worth of $4.1 billion. That's up from $3.2 billion on the 2020 world's billionaire list, when his rank was No. 616.

In the fall, Forbes ranked Morris No. 181 on the 39th annual Forbes 400 list of the wealthiest Americans. His estimated net worth at the time also was $4.1 billion.
